…It’s TGI Friday: Facebook?

Facebook is now on Facebook!

In an effort to find new, fun, and creative ways to promote the site, I’ve created a Facebook Page for, and I’d love for you to check it out.

On the page, you’ll find a Facebook version of each post, along with a Discussion Board, a Wall, and a Graffiti area.

Though I’m not entirely sure what this page will become, I figure that it’s a great place for DYH readers to interact, and it can evolve into its own little community in time.

To get things started, I’m going to be doing a special giveaway to anyone who becomes a “Fan” of the page.

To enter, just click “Become a Fan” in the top right of the page, and then next Friday (March 7) I’ll select a random winner from among the fans, and award that person a $10 Amazon Gift Card (or something of equal value if Amazon isn’t exactly your thing).

I’m also looking for feedback, so feel free to contact me directly, or comment either on this post, or on the page with features that you’d like to see, general comments, or anything else that you can think of.

See you there!

…Martinis are edible?

The Edible Martini“Chef/mad scientist Dave Arnold of the French Culinary Institute has figured out how to vacuum infuse a martini inside a cucumber.”

By sucking the air out of a cucumber, you can replace that space with martini, giving you an edible martini that has the taste of a martini with the crunch of a cucumber.

…The Bassett Collection is amazing?

The Bassett CollectionThough they’re a bit on the graphic side, the Bassett Collection of dissection photos is a fascinating look into the inner workings of the human body.

Now, thanks to Stanford University Medical Center, you too can view these amazing images on Flickr.

It’s only part of the massive collection, but it’s beautiful in an informative sort of way.
