Two 12″ Pizzas in 90 Seconds or Less

Why spend 30 minutes for waiting for a delivery from Dominos, when you could cook two 12″ pizzas in 90 seconds with the Hammacher Schlemmer 90 Second Dual Pizza Oven. You read that right, 90 seconds as in 1 1/2 minutes. Now, this seems to be for pizzas made from scratch, but the real important information here is how much time will it take to heat my Digiornos?

How does this gadget work? Well…

Both oven decks have roof-mounted 1,440-watt coil heating elements that ensure perfectly caramelized cheese and toppings, while the ceramic pizza stones distribute heat evenly across the dough and absorb excess moisture, resulting in faster cooking times and a crispier crust than pizza cooked on a sheet tray.

It is pretty expensive at $250, but think about how much money you will save by not ordering out every week. Alright, so if you do the math its not that great of a deal, but who can say no to a pizza feast in less than 2 minutes?


"Holy crap! Can you imagine this in a university dorm? Pizza Overload!"

Unreal, Isn't it?

Jumper's Tricked-Out Teleportation: Hollywood Sci-Fi vs. Reality

Teleportation has long been the object of real-world desire—not to mention sci-fi speculation, from Star Trek to The Twilight Zone to Heroes. Though scientists have actually had some success in the lab, the fact remains that you can’t spontaneously disappear and travel wherever you want. And that, according to director Doug Liman, is the sole fallacy of physics he accepted when filming Jumper, featuring Star Wars vet Hayden Christensen as a kid with a genetic anomaly that allows him to skip through wormholes across the world. “What if somebody had this power?” Liman asks. “That’s the only leap of faith that I took in the movie. Everything else is grounded in the real physics of our world.”

Free Thought Takes on Organized Religion in National Billboard Campaign

In early February, the freethinkers group Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) debuted its 14 X 48-foot stained glass style billboard with the message "Imagine No Religion" in Columbus, Ohio.
he national campaign is an effort to let Americans know that there is room for reason and clarity of thought, free from the dogma that organized religion uses to keep its flock in line; as well as donating.

Dan Barker, Foundation co-president and author of 'Losing Faith in Faith: From Preacher to Atheist' said "Many of our members, including generous sponsors in Ohio, want to balance all that religion on the roadside with some reason on the roadside."

Hamas launches TV Bugs Bunny-lookalike who declares 'I will eat the Jews'

A Hamas TV show for children which was condemned last year for a Mickey Mouse lookalike character who encouraged terror attacks against Israelis has produced a new outrage - a Bugs Bunny lookalike who declares "I will eat the Jews".

Assud the rabbit is the latest star of the Hamas children's TV show "Tomorrow's Pioneers". The show is produced in Gaza by the Hamas-controlled Al-Aqsa TV station and beamed around the Arabic-speaking world by satellite.

The show, which is aimed at children under 12, is hosted by a sweet-looking girl in a headscarf called Saraa and at first glance looks like any other kids TV program.

Do As We Say, Not As We Do

Muhammad banned all images that depicted him in the fear that his followers would worship them. The idea was to prevent the worship of false idols (i.e. other than Allah). That Islam, as an institution, has inoculated Muslims to overreact to non-Muslims producing images of Muhammad is...unfortunate.

"While I can understand Muslims being upset about how Mohammed was depicted, what they then proceeded to do next with violence is not understandable. Extreme actions simply produce the viewpoint that 'these people' are extremists."

Dane, Tunisians arrested in cartoonist murder plot

A Danish citizen of Moroccan descent and two Tunisians were arrested in Denmark on Tuesday over a plot to murder one of 12 cartoonists whose drawings of the Prophet Mohammad caused worldwide uproar in 2006.
The Security and Intelligence Service (PET) said the arrests near Aarhus in western Denmark were made after lengthy surveillance to prevent a "terror-related killing" that was in an early stage of planning.
PET said it expected the 40-year-old Danish citizen to be released pending further investigation. The Tunisians will remain detained while deportation proceedings are brought against them.
According to Jyllands-Posten, the newspaper that originally published the cartoons in September 2005, the suspects are accused of planning to kill 73-year-old Kurt Westergaard.
He drew the cartoon that caused the most controversy, depicting the founder of Islam with a bomb in his turban. The paper reproduced that drawing on its Web site on Tuesday.

(The one one the top, to the right side, that shows the turban as a bomb is one of the cartoons that really made some go ballistic.)

The Bible as Graphic Novel, With a Samurai Stranger Called Christ

Ajinbayo Akinsiku wants the world to know Jesus Christ, just not the gentle, blue-eyed Christ of old Hollywood movies and illustrated Bibles.
Mr. Akinsiku says his Son of God is “a samurai stranger who’s come to town, in silhouette,” here to shake things up in a new, much-abridged version of the Bible rooted in manga, the Japanese form of graphic novels.
“We present things in a very brazen way,” said Mr. Akinsiku, who hopes to become an Anglican priest and who is the author of “The Manga Bible: From Genesis to Revelation.” “Christ is a hard guy, seeking revolution and revolt, a tough guy.”

Catch of the day: Cocaine

At first glance, Bluefields in Nicaragua looks like any other rum-soaked, Rastafarian-packed, hammock-infested Caribbean paradise. But Bluefields has a secret.
People here don't have to work. Every week, sometimes every day, 35kg sacks of cocaine drift in from the sea. The economy of this entire town of 50,000 tranquil souls is addicted to cocaine.
Bluefields is a creation of the gods of geography. Located halfway between the cocaine labs of Colombia and the 300 million noses of the United States, Bluefields is ground zero for cocaine transportation. Nicaraguan waters are near Colombian territorial limits, making the area extremely popular with cocaine smugglers using very small, very fast fishing boats.
