    It’s magic, isn’t it? I’d ask, How does that even work? but I am pretty sure the answer involves chemistry and physics, and I was an art major.

    You guys, I’m not doing a recipe post this week because Alain’s asked me to fill in again for a couple of days and I’ve got another guest post from WereBear this weekend. In case anyone was wondering where their food was this evening.

    @Ohio Mom:
    Hey! I put myself in the penalty box with NotMax. What more could I do?
    OK besides not make the obvious lame joke.

    @Ruckus: Thanks, the reason it took a good portion of my day is that I put my camera bag on my tripod to steady it and it did the opposite. I had to throw away some shots(I’m using stacking here) and then align the rest. I’m happy with the result though.

    My partner and I don’t eat octopus anymore because they’re so intelligent. But who knows? There’s a chance I’d make an exception here or there. This video makes it less likely I’d ever make an exception.
