Fall 2014 fashion: Scout’s ham costume from To Kill A Mockingbird



she likes carrying around random rags for no reason


Unicorn Tear

240ml Mineral water
2½/3g Agar flakes

a pinch of vanilla sugar

Add the water to a double boiler and sprinkle the agar flakes on top.
Heat until boiling without stirring.
Add the vanilla sugar.
Stir occasionally, trying not to introduce too many bubbles for around 5/10 minutes, until the agar has completely dissolved.
Pour into a half sphere mould and cool in the fridge to set.

The mochi is very delicate as less agar has been used, so it will fall apart easily. It will also begin to melt after 20 minutes or so at room temperature.

If done right, you’ll have a completely transparent half sphere of water that literally melts back into water in your mouth.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
