some fun links for you

Inside Michael Jackson's crazy mind! Or at least his would-be auction house. Via Sarah Weinman.

NYT article on literacy in Roman times, back when you'd have to "rewind" a scroll for the next user.

Did anyone else, like me, not hear of thisiswhyyourefat.com until yesterday? It was advertised to me as "the most disgusting fattening food you'll ever see" but flicking through the pictures I'm just, well, appetized. Pictured here: the deep fried Cadbury Creme Egg, and the Hamburger Cake.


Also, GraphJam. Thanks to a very fruitful birthday party I went to last night, I have a whole new list of blog subscriptions. GraphJam is an uneven but often fabulous daily graph site. Scroll down for the Disney Kids venn diagram or the Horse flowchart.

All right, back to my reading list! Happy Sunday.

Thx for the link on Roman literacy. Very interesting!

I wonder if the deep-friend Creme Egg is related to the deep-friend Mars Bar?

There was a book released in Australia a few years back called 'Cooking with Fat' and it was glorious. There was supposed to be a sequel, but I think one of the authors died or something.

I love thisiswhyyourefat's tagline of 'where dreams become heart attacks'.

OK, better get to school, I'm helping my son's class out in gym this morning. I'd better jog there ...

Cadbury cream eggs are my favorite. My mom just gave me three of them for my birthday. :9 I've never tried one deep fried. Fascinating.

Deep fried Cadbury creme eggs -- I never thought I'd run across anything I wanted more than deep-fried Coca Cola, but now you've given me a new goal in life.
