The pickle is in peril. Each summer since the mid 2000s, Florida winds carry downy mildew to cucumber fields north. By summer's end, the disease reaches Michigan, leaving a trail of withered leaves and thwarted pickling plans. With failed harvests, fewer growers are taking a chance on cucumbers. "This is the number one threat to the pickle industry," says vegetable pathologist Lina Quesada-Ocampo of North Carolina State University.

The tech world told a lot of lies in 2018, and it was caught in those lies at what feels like an unprecedented rate.

we built the HORF a barn two winters ago for when the weather is bad, filled it with hay and feed, and yet I can guarantee you when there are a few inches of snow on the ground in a few days, that dumbass will be standing alone in the middle of the pasture, miserable
Mount Horeb is one of Wisconsin’s funkiest, coolest towns. Their trollway is famous and discovering all things grumpy is one of the best ways to spend a day trip. Right in the middle of town you’ll find the Grumpy Troll Brewery. This award-winning brewery makes some of the most interesting, unique beers you’ve ever tasted. They’ve even been recognized at the World Beer Cup. You’ll definitely want to head here to taste whatever it is they’ve got on tap. But drinking makes you hungry, and that’s where their famous humongous soft pretzel comes in.
Read a little bit the Uff Da Pretzel which weighs in at a pound and a half..

Stupid stuff, you did not know... Watch how Funyuns are made! You might be surprised to learn that they are not made of onions. The onion flavor is sprayed on after the ring is made.
For more than a million years, mankind has been attempting to improve upon the simple fire. We've tried burning different things like sticks or leaves or various incriminating documents. We've tried making fires last longer. We've even figured out how to turn them into different colors. All of that experimentation, all of that innovation, has culminated in this event, the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog, from Enviro-Log®.

You wouldn't think the noble butterfly stitch could be improved much, but you'd be wrong - introducing the Zipstitch, based upon the TopClosure system developed by Dr. Moris Topaz of the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center.
Andreas Hvid, who is known for taking pictures in forbidden places, seems to have found a new way to piss off a whole lot of Egyptians - he boinked a gal atop of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Work-safe. Ish.
