…Science has created the ultimate Jell-O shot?

Jell-O Shots

Creating the ultimate Jell-O shot might not be the dream of every scientist, but for a few determined drunkards, the thought of a shot that doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled the amount of alcohol found in a typical Jell-O shot was too tempting to resist.

The purpose of this experiment was to determine the highest possible concentration of alcohol attainable in a Jell-O shot, while still maintaining the structural integrity (i.e., the gelling properties) of the gelatin.

Through rigorous scientific testing, two dozen batches of Jell-O shots, and nearly five 1.75 liter bottles of vodka, they discovered that “too much is much, much more than we would have guessed”.

Read on to discover the secret behind the ultimate Jell-O shot:

…The Orange Box is racist?

Team Fortress 2

Buyers of Valve’s The Orange Box quickly discovered that Team Fortress 2 is one of the best multiplayer games out right now.

Using class-based warfare, players assume a role that they must follow until they die. If they want to be a medic, they must spend their time healing other players. If they want to be a pyro, they’re armed with a flamethrower and they must spend their time burning everything in sight.

Though it makes for great gameplay, it does bring up one question: Why is the only black character in the game a grenade launching drunkard?

Games aren’t necessarily known for their racial sensitivity, but this seems to go a bit beyond mere oversight.

What do you think? Was the black player’s role intentional, or did someone just press the black button at the wrong time?
