Pink Slime – You Want Fries With That?

Similar to a previous dissection they had performed on hot dogs, the researchers discovered waste and by-products including connective tissue, nerve tissue, cartilage, bone, and in a quarter of the samples, Sarcocystis parasites. But surely these “fillers” were the minority, right? Unfortunately not.

What is Bach worth? – The Domino Project.

The real question is how much would you pay for 9 hours of classical music?  Would you pay 99 cents?

I checked Amazon today and the deal is still on.  I clicked and bought.  Amazon is hoping that a lot of people will click and buy.  The company is clearly betting on a social media referral strategy, hoping that enough people will email, link, blog, etc., about this offer to drive sales.

Hopefully Amazon will share the results of their experiment.
