KFC goes into space

Thought for the day…” Do not watch the clock, do what it does…keep going”

“You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.”

Saw an interesting story in the news recently about KFC, who are going to send one of their ‘Zinger Burger’ chicken sandwiches into space, through a company called World View.    The project is partly being finance by KFC.   So it will be interesting to see the effects of zero gravity and no oxygen on the burger.   Of course, KFC will be posting the details on their webpages live.  Not that KFC are first with their idea,  previously a pie company has sent one of its meat pies into space to space to study the effects of space on it.   Interesting, that ‘launch’ took place from outside a pub in northern England !!

Today’s photo comes from 70 degrees north, in Finnmark province at the top of Norway.   The reindeer are easy to spot at this time of year, especially as they come near the towns lower down to feed on spring grass.   The photo was taken hand-held using the Fuji X-T20 and Fuji 100-400mm lens.

and another photo….a cross country train starts it trip from Penzance, Cornwall, England

Photo of the Day Saturday 25th May 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Life is the most difficult exam. Many people fail because they copy others, not realising that everyone has a different question paper”.                                                ” Happiness is the ultimate DIY project.”

I picked up a wonderful story in the news about the toilet paper shortage in Venezuela.   Apparently, the Venezuelan government is planning to import 39 million rolls to help with the serious shortage in Venezuela.   Reports say that people have been queuing to buy toilet paper, and in some places, people have had their hands ink stamped to prevent them buying more than their quota.  That got me to have a look at the Toilet Paper Encyclopedia (yes, there is one) where I discovered that in 1996 in the USA, that President Clinton imposed a 6 cent tax on each roll of toilet paper.   The USA is the world’s largest producer of toilet paper.   And did you know that toilegami is the art of folding toilet paper into elaborate shapes?

And for the photo today, a picture of a snowmobile jumping in the city centre, Helsinki, Finland.
