Instant McDonalds in Japan (Just Add Water)
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Mon Jun 4 2012 3:37 PM ]
Japan, as a nation, is filled with people doing incredibly brilliant and incomprehensively weird things. There may be no clearer proof of that than this video in which someone goes through the unbelievably labor intensive process of creating Japan’s hottest new snack food: a powdered McDonalds Happy Meal. This thing is as fascinating as it is repulsive. I’m craving one right now.

Odds & Ends
By Devin D. O’Leary
Dateline: New York—In August, ultra-dissatisfied customer Dalton Chiscolm sued the largest U.S. bank, demanding “1,784 billion, trillion dollars” for poor customer service. He also asked for an additional $200,165,000 in punitive damages, according to court papers. Last Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Denny Chin called Chiscolm’s lawsuit against Bank of America “incomprehensible” in Manhattan Federal Court. “He seems to be complaining that he placed a series of calls to the bank in New York and received inconsistent information from a ‘Spanish woman,’ ” the judge wrote. Chiscolm’s unusual monetary demand is larger than a sextillion dollars, or a 1 followed by 21 zeros. The sum far exceeds the world’s 2008 gross domestic product of $60 trillion, as estimated by the World Bank. “These are the kind of numbers you deal with only on a cosmic scale,” Sylvain Cappell, New York University’s Silver Professor at the Courant Institute for Mathematical Science, told New York’s Daily News. “If he thinks Bank of America has branches on every planet in the cosmos, then it might start to make some sense.” Judge Chin gave Chiscolm until Oct. 23 to better explain the basis for his claims or else see his complaint dismissed.
