Comedy on Ice

Today is the day to watch Will Ferrell act goofy. Stephen Holden calls him both “a ferocious marshmallow” and “an armchair GeorgePlimpton whose characters, driven by an outlandish grandiosity, are deeply reassuring.” In “Blades of Glory,” he and his co-star Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite to you) “stake an early claim to being the comedy couple of the year.” All while falling on their stocking-clad bottoms.

Turkeys have been exploding in size, swelling from an average 13.2lb (6kg) in 1929 to over 30lb today. All trends persisting, they will be big as humans in just 150 years. Best get those leftovers out and start gobbling them before they gobble you http://econ.st/1FuUARx

I read "Sex and the Single Girl" when I was 21 years old, freshly transplanted to New York and working in the glamorous capacity of a dishwasher/freelance-writer. I'd expected the book to be marshmallow fluff—a weightless thing to gobble and then regret. Parts of it were exactly that. But much of it was smart, sharp, and, to my surprise, immediately useful.



Sweet Potatoes Step Out From Under Marshmallows

A Southern tradition has its incarnation as a fry to thank for its growing popularity.

Nine days after deadly Boko Haram attack killed as many as 2,000, bodies still litter the area.

Creating the perfect mozzarella

At this time of year, food is on many people's minds as they prepare for the festive season.

In Italy, it's a fairly certain bet that a good mozzarella will be on the table, preferably mozzarella di buffala made using buffalo milk. Our reporter eats a lot of buffalo mozzarella, but she's never seen a buffalo before. So she headed to Amaseno, a town 60 kilometers south of Rome renowned for its buffalo milk. And of course, she couldn't resist popping into a factory to taste some of the squishy white cheese.

Question of the Day
What would happen if you dropped a marshmallow from the Empire State Building and it hit someone?
He would get marshmallow in his hair.

The marshmallow is too small and has too little weight to do any damage. It would reach terminal velocity (the speed at which it doesn't fall any faster) fairly quickly, and that low speed, combined with the squishy nature of the marshmallow would keep it from doing any damage. Also, due to the shape of the building and the winds in the area, the marshmallow would likely not even make it to the ground, but get caught on one of the lower levels of the building and make a nice snack for a pigeon.
