This week I decided to pay one last homage to my fortnight of Olympic sloth by providing you with some cool shit that will see you through some serious park-arsing.
Firstly, a bit of Olympic geekery (is that a word? If it wasn't before, it is now and I think I like it). This cool little video is about historical data. I can see the glaze dropping across your eyelids already but WAIT! This is historical data that's interesting. Or at least I think it is. Pretty statistics are always fun. Thanks New York Times.
When you are sat on your chuff, the staple food item (you can't lose 30mins of quality viewing with a trip to the supermarket) is toast. But that doesn't mean your toast can't be pretty. This awesome toaster reminds me of the toasty pie machine we had as a kid. It hardly qualified as a machine actually. It had a hinge so it did have moving parts, but basically it was just two big cast iron plates that you squashed the bread between. No, I'm not 80 years old, it's just that we didn't get an electronic toasty pie maker til I was about 15 because, well, we just didn't. That machine made the edges nice and crunchy which is really the best bit of toasty pies. I don't think this one looks like a crunch edge kinda toaster, but it well and truly makes up for it with pretty.
