5 Things I Found Interesting 11.10.2017 Edition
It’s that time of the week again! Time to bring up 5 things I found interesting throughout the week. What will it be this week?! See below…
1. White Chocolate M&Ms
I’m a big fan of M&Ms – any chocolate really, but I’m a HUGE fan of white chocolate. And while perusing my local Wal-Mart I found the holy grail of all candies (well at least to me). It combined two of my favorite things… white chocolate and the melt-in-your-mouth not in your hand form factor. These things are delicious! If you are a white chocolate fan like myself, I definitely recommend snagging one of these bags if you see them at a grocery store!
2. Discovery in the Great Pyramid of Giza
Newsflash! They discovered aliens within a secret chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza also known as the Pyramid of Khufu. Just checking to see if you were reading… they didn’t find any ancient aliens – or at least there’s a huge cover up, but they did find an empty chamber. They found the chamber by using some really cool cosmic science (sounds more science fiction), but basically they found the empty chamber by observing cosmic-ray muons – using some pretty fancy machines. All in all pretty neat discovery, who knows what can be lurking inside that chamber… my bet… a whole lot of nothing… but I’ve been wrong on predictions before… a lot wrong.
3. Anker SoundCore 2
I recently upgraded my portable bluetooth speaker (the Canz Bluetooth Audio Speaker by 808 Audio) to the Anker soundCore 2… and boy am I glad I upgraded. My church asked me to sort of play “D.J.” for our “Treasures from the Trunk” event (basically a Bible themed Halloween event) and there about 75 – 100 people that were attending and the little Canz wasn’t going to cut it. I bought the Anker SoundCore 2 the week of the event and it worked amazingly. The unit packs a big bite for such a small speaker, has great bass for it’s size and mid-tones are pretty smooth. It’s also IPX5 water resistant and has a pretty great range. I can’t recommend it enough.
4. James Townsend and Son 18th Century Cooking
I first randomly discovered the James Townsend and Son youtube channel by accident. I didn’t even know there was such a fan base for 18th century cooking and was surprised to see it’s popularity. Jon Townsend – the son of James (which the company is named after) hosts the show usually in his replica 18th century kitchen. He cooks all kinds of things from the 18th century, trying out recipes from actual cookbooks of the 17 and 1800s. The company itself sells period 18th century clothing if you’re interested. http://www.townsends.us/ Enjoy a taste below:
I stumbled upon GOG.com – it was formerly known as Good Old Games – when I was searching for some old games from my childhood. I was specifically looking for an old turn based game called Sid Meir’s Alpha Centauri. This gaming client particular specializes in older games and is much like Steam or Origin where you purchase PC games digitally and can download them from the Client. The older Dos games that GOG sells already come pre-configured to run off of DOS box and basically once you install the game, you are good to go. Just click on the icon and start playing. You could probably get these games for free, but GOG.com made it so easy and affordable. I paid $5.99 for the Alpha Centauri game and expansion. If you are into retro computer games, I highly recommend visiting this site, maybe you can find one from your long lost childhood.
Well there you have it! Five interesting things I found and wanted to share this week!
