I just came across this really fun post that teaches you how to develop negatives with coffee and Vitamin C.
Chemistry at work!!
It sounds like something I would love to try one day, with one teeny weeny problem – color films will end up as black and white negatives. Aw. darn.
Still, it sounds like fun. Shall go get a roll of film, dig out my old film camera and play with this one day.
I recently had the misfortune to try Butterfish at a restaurant in Vivocity (Singapore).
Why misfortune? Read the effects of consumption here.
Pretty gross right?
This fish is banned in Japan and Italy. If I had my way, I wish it was banned in Singapore too! Or at least, all menus with it should come with a very big warning so that consumers will be aware of the after effects of eating this not-that-fantastic fish.
Ever drunk an ice-cold smoothie only to get a throbbing headache?
Congrats, you just had a brain freeze!
How does it work?
Basically, on a hot day, you are probably dying for a cold cold drink. but when u take a sip from the freezing drink, you subject the nerves at the roof of your mouth to extreme coldness. This results in your nerves sending signals to your brain that you are freezing (when u really aren’t) and your brain then reacts by heating itself up (to protect itself from being frozen).
When that happens, your brain is actually overheating itself without realising it. Hence, you get a brain freeze!
So if you ever want to avoid a brain freeze, try drinking ur drink such that it does not touch the roof of your mouth so as to avoid the nerves clustered there going haywire and sending wrong signals to your brain! =)
