My science work is not going how I want it to, unfortunately. But it's hard to be grumpy when my friend just got me an early-birthday present of kouign amann, the best cake in the world!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Who has a fun pre-Thanksgiving workout they like to do to increase their hunger before the meal?

On Two Klassic Unions

I knew it was weird I could see the stadium lights on last night!

AT&T Park seems like a weird place to propose... are they Giants fans? Do they even like baseball? Maybe they needed all the extra seats for the camera crew to record every possible angle.

On Ask a Dietitian: Wine Time, Fruit Soup, Our Forbidden Lover (Diet Coke)

I have a question about the whole "probiotic" craze. The bacteria in the probiotics you eat are 1) immediately broken down in your stomach, killing them, and 2) not even the same bacteria we have in our intestines because we don't even know how to culture anaerobic intestinal bacteria. So what is the point of eating "probiotic" food? Aren't you just paying for really expensive poop?

On The Best Time My Girlfriend’s Baby Tooth Fell Out

@H.R. Vixen I only had 3 as well! I assumed you had to have an even number (either 4 or 2), but I guess we are weird.

On The Best Time My Girlfriend’s Baby Tooth Fell Out

Oh man, I thought I was a late bloomer with a baby tooth at 14. My mom always said that getting/losing teeth late in life meant you would live a very long time, so I assume your ex-girlfriend is going to live forever.
