Caffeinated Chocolate Milk Straws

Yeah, you read that right. Caffeinated Chocolate Milk Straws – with 200mg of caffeine per straw. Here’s what you do: pop the ends of the straw and mix the powder with 8oz of milk (of course, you can add more or less, depending on your specific tastes), stir, and then suck it through the straw. It’s that simple to get delicious chocolate milk loaded with caffeine. 200mg is about 2.5 energy drinks worth, in case you’re wondering. Caffeinated Chocolate Milk Straws… just add milk and we’ll take care of the buzz and the chocolate!” w/ photos

Why Is Ice Slippery?

“In Sydney, ice melts because it is warm out in the middle of the day (even in winter). This creates a layer of water on top that certainly makes it slippery. But should it be slippery at night or in a cold northern climate where the air temperature is below zero? Yes, because the pressure your skates apply to the ice actually lowers its melting point allowing you to glide along a thin layer of water.” — 1veritasium

The Color Of Attraction

“Scientific research has shown that heterosexual males and females find members of the opposite sex more attractive when they wear the color red. This is a subconscious preference that seems to have some evolutionary basis. We attempted to replicate these findings in Sydney but our methods were much less controlled and the results achieved were not statistically significant.” — 1veritasium

How To Make Chicken N’ Apple Salad

I made this recipe on a total whim today and I’m SO glad I did. It is so delicious that I want to eat it every day for the rest of my life. And guess what? It’s so easy that I just might be able to. I wrote the recipe to use two chicken breasts but I didn’t realize until it was too late that I only had one chicken breast in my freezer… so please ignore the photos that show only one. Make it with two. It definitely needs two.” w/ photos
