Hi, Pat. I see that your love for Coca-Cola is still alive and well. Why do you love it so much?
Pat Reidy: Well, firstly, I really like the flavor, but I also think that it represents one of the best publicity campaigns that there’s ever been in the world. It’s international, it’s intelligent, and uses everything to promote its brand. People see a T-shirt, a toy, a poster or whatever, and want to drink a Coke. Coca-Cola invented Santa Claus, and that says everything.
Yes, please. Tell me about the steps I need to follow in order to be a professional Coca-Cola drinker.
You should always drink it really cold; always from a glass bottle, or maybe from a can, but never, ever from a plastic bottle. The best Coke is the one that comes from the tiny glass bottle. I always buy the 355-milliliter glass bottle, though.
How many Cokes do you drink a day?
I don’t drink it much nowadays. I drink one 355-milliliter bottle a day and I really enjoy it—you have no idea. Unless there’s a party or a special occasion; then I drink more. But that’s what I do now, because for years, when I had to teach 12 hours a day, drinking Coke was my salvation. I used to drink 15 355-milliliter bottles a day.
Was it ever bad for your health?
Never. Back then there was no water. There was no purified water and they didn’t sell water gallons to keep at home. So between drinking boiled water or Coke, well, there is no contest, really. I also cook with Coca-Cola.
What do you cook with Coke?
You can cook many things with Coca-Cola. I even have recipe books. My specialty is a hamburger that I make with my secret recipe. I fry it on my grandmother’s pan—which is huge—with Coca-Cola instead of oil, a bit of English sauce, pepper, garlic salt, and onions. It’s wonderful. I call it Pat’s hamburger. I also use it in soups. I love it.

Friday the 13th comes on a Monday this month. A whole week of bad luck, unless you’re a tree snake.
No, that’s not a photo shop. It’s a real pig being fed a Bunk sandwich. With minimal sleuthing we determined that the hipsters’ porker is standing on the pristine pavement in front of BUNK Sandwiches 2017 NE Alberta Street, Portland Oregon.
This is not their only venue, and they have a Bunk Truck for catering. Why didn’t they tell me? After all, I’ve already got a cool hip logo for lease or rent:
BTW, Google Maps Street View captured this Babe Magnet parked across the street from Bunk’s.

I was informed about a cool site called “MapCrunch” that takes you to a random Google Maps Street View Image with a single click ‘o the mouse, so I took it for a quick spin.
I ended up traveling North on the Bumthang-Ura Highway in Bhutan and decided to see what was around the corner. (Click on any image below for detail.)
Looks pretty, clean and quiet, paved road, dogs, no graffiti and snakes on the roof. Yeah, I could live there, and what could be better than living in the sticks and having a King named Jigme Wangchuck?
[h/t Baffled Baboon]
Yep. There they are.
The other day, I was examined the contents of the digestive tract of Giant isopod who died.
in individuals captured after the date has not passed, it does not eat food in the aquarium.
Stomach contents, you believed that you were eating in the food or the seabed in the trap at the time of capture.
Previously, there was a thing that was introduce another individual of the contents, inside also this individual digestive tract had been filled with undigested material.
Color is black, different impression until now.
Weight of stomach contents is 128.5g, because body weight was about 1000g, you pretty now that it was at once ate a large amount of food for the body weight.
In texture you whether referred to as a “massive”, “soggy” This time, such as the internal organs of something if from the color feel of the … squid?
Smell is stronger, but because it was unexpectedly pond likely feel it when I smell, I tried to make sure the taste is a little lick.
Not surprisingly unpleasant, here also certainly (such as, for example, Ayu visceral salted “Uruka”) taste like salted fish visceral.
Even I feel taste.
When you leave for a while and left at room temperature (22 ℃), so went more and more soluble in muddy, I felt that you are self-digestion. Do Will contains a large amount of enzyme.
After that, I was a survey of solid was strained with a net, but this time in as long as it was confirmed by eye scales of fish are not included at all, there was still many just squid beak.
Most but is small enough width 7mm, even things like pieces of a large squid beak is in.
This individual seems to have apparently eat squid.
