Oh those wacky Finns.

National Sleepy Head Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - Thank goodness the Snook didn't know about this, or I would've had a very damp morning!
National Sleepy Head Day (Finnish: Unikeonpäivä) is celebrated in Finland on July 27 every year. Traditionally on this day, the last person in the house (also dubbed as the "laziest") to wake up is woken up using water, either by being thrown into a lake or the sea, or by having water thrown on them.

Beetroot, pickle, salad, and so big it needs a skewer. David Chang would be horrified.

A high-tech low-res display using spools and fabric!

F21 Thread Screen - This is super cool. Be sure to watch the "behind the scenes" video so you can see how it works. It took me a while to work out that each "spool" is actually one end of a long rotor belt of "threaded fabric" that turns so the correct colour displays. You can send your own Instagram photo by tagging it with #F21ThreadScreen. (I sent mine this morning but it hasn't shown up yet. Not sure how long a backlog they've got!)

Century Egg

Century EggFor lunch today we had mapo tofu, rice noodles, pork floss, and century eggs. I'd never eaten a century egg before. It looked horrible. But everybody else was taking them, so I decided to be brave. My colleague Nic said that they just taste like normal hardboiled eggs. So I closed my eyes and tried it. And he's right! It just tasted like a normal egg, albeit one with a slightly weird texture. But man, they look unnatural. I kind of can't stop thinking about it.
