  • Actual sign posted in Chandler, Arizona

    Posted by Justin "The Big Deal"


    You'd THINK this goes without saying.  Apparently, it does not.  The city of Chandler, Arizona had to put signs up around their City Hall telling people NOT to drink the water out of their toilets and urinals.

    Gray water is a term for reused wastewater.  In other words, sewage water that hasn't been treated, processed, or made safe for drinking.  Using gray water in public toilets is one of the environmental measures the city is trying to take.

    Craig Younger is a spokesman for the city of Chandler.  He says they didn't post the signs because they've had problems with people drinking out of the toilets . . . they posted them because they HAD to.

     He says the city needed to get a building code variance to use the gray water in their toilets . . . and as part of the deal, they were required to post the signs.

  • The Ultimate Thanksgivng Dessert!

    Posted by Justin "The Big Deal"

    Thanksgiving changed forever when the TURDUCKEN was invented.  If you somehow don't know what that is, it's a chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey.

    --Well a man named Charles Phoenix has decided to take your Thanksgiving to the next level . . . and created the Turducken's dessert-based cousin.

    --It's a monstrous three-layer cake called the CHERPUMPLE.  Here's what's inside.

    --A bottom layer of spice cake, with an apple pie baked inside.

    --A middle layer of yellow cake, with a pumpkin pie baked inside.

    --A top layer of white cake, with a cherry pie baked inside.

     --Assemble the three layers, holding them together with frosting . . . and then frost the entire thing.

     --The only downside of the Cherpumple is that it's REALLY hard to build.  Charles says, quote, "The physics of it provide a kind of 'will it or won't it collapse' situation.  But if it does, you can act like it was meant to happen and serve it with spoons."

  • Silence of the Lambs moth on the wing for Halloween

    Posted by Justin "The Big Deal"

     

    A rare moth with skull an crossbones markings, that was used to illustrate horror film Silence of the Lambs, will be on the wing this Halloween.  

    The death’s head hawk-moth is the largest moth to appear in Britain, sporting a wingspan of up to 5 inches.

    The unusual insect arrives in Britain from southern Europe in late summer and autumn - just in time for Halloween.  Most chillingly, if handled, it emits a loud, shrill squeak by forcing air out of its proboscis – the long, tube-like appendage that butterflies and moths normally use to suck nectar.
