Breakfast Pasta

“You can file this dish under ‘food ideas I wish I would have thought of.’ I was brunching with my wife and a couple friends at The Knick recently and what did I come across on their menu? Breakfast pasta! That’s right, as part of their Sunday brunch menu the restaurant serves up fettuccine tossed with scrambled eggs, onions, tomatoes and bacon and topped with Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. The only downfall of having pasta this early in the day is that it makes you pretty sluggish, especially when you pair it with multiple beers like I did. Aside from that though this was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time.” w/ photos

Seattle Superhero Arrested?

Instead of the bad guys, it was Seattle’s most prolific self-styled superhero that ended up in handcuffs. Police officers arrested the 23-year-old man who calls himself Phoenix Jones early on Sunday after he was accused of assaulting several people with pepper spray. He was booked in county jail on four counts of assault, with arraignment set for Thursday. ‘Our message has been the same from the beginning, if you see something that warrants calling 911, call 911,’ said Seattle police spokesman Det Mark Jamieson. ‘Just because he’s dressed up in costume, it doesn’t mean he’s in special consideration or above the law. You can’t go around pepper spraying people because you think they are fighting.’ But Jones, who wears a black mask with yellow stripes and a bulging muscle bodysuit, said he was only trying to stop a street brawl.” w/ photos + video

Sugar-Free Gum Is Bad For Your Teeth?

Dentists who recommend that patients chew sugar-free gum after meals may need to rethink their advice, after scientists found the habit could actually erode teeth. A study review in the British Dental Journal found there is a ‘hidden risk’ in sugar-free products that are promoted as ‘tooth friendly’. A team, from the universities of Boston, Helsinki and Souther Nevada, examined the role of sugar substitutes used in products to tackle tooth decay. They found there was an ‘unrecognized risk of acidic flavoring in sugar-free candies and beverages.’ They said a group of substitutes of sugar alcohols or polyols including xylitol and sorbitol can reduce the risk of cavities. However, they also increase mouth acidity which erodes dental enamel – the tooth’s hard protective coating. This is especially true if they contain fruit flavorings.” w/ photo

Top 10 ’80s Cartoons That Need Reboots

“It’s official — the new, long-awaited ThunderCats cartoon is a hit, the rare reboot that not only looks better, but might actually be better than the original. Taking the original, clunky tale of cat-people living in relative peace in paradise and turning it into a anime-style hero’s journey along a path of revenge, the new ThunderCats tweaks the familiar aspects of the show just enough to make them actually make sense together, and knifes enough people in the back so as not to make everyone’s survival a foregone conclusion. While Masters of the Universe gave a slightly darkened update a whirl a decade ago, and Voltron is attempting to do the same now, ThunderCats is now the gold standard, and there’s a long list of 1980s cartoons that would give their right Snarf for a similar treatment.” w/ videos
