Thursday trivia #33

From the excellent-videos department: a magic helicopter whose blades don’t turn. (Actually they do, but you’d never guess it from this video.)

New Music Thursday: my friend Michael recommended Caro Emerald and I’ve had a wonderful time listening to them– a neat mix of swing and dance with a touch of Dixieland and some fun retro-style videos.

I think I want to try learning how to cook sous vide. The promise of a simple, repeatable way to quickly make delicious entrees is pretty darn compelling. A group of friends at Microsoft is planning on doing a group build of a home sous vide machine, so I think I’ll try building my own at first.
