Nuclear Weapons 718 - Even A Limited Nuclear Exchange Would Have A Major Impact On The Oceans And Marine Life

     I have blogged before about the idea of nuclear winter. If there is a nuclear conflict in which at least a hundred nuclear warheads are detonated, the soot, soil and smoke thrown into the atmosphere would shut out sunlight for years and crop failures would kill billions that survived the actual conflict. Now scientists are studying what effect a nuclear war might have on the world’s oceans.

What's Your Favorite Chaffle?

Have you ever made chaffles? Chaffles are a new form of waffles that are made of something ketogenic, usually mozzarella or another type of cheese, combined with eggs and either savory or sweet keto-friendly flavors like herbs, cocoa, peanut butter, etc. with sweeteners. Some even buy pre-flavored sweeteners to make them taste like caramel, coconut, s'mores, peach, etc.

Braintopia

Braintopia is one of those games that gives you a bunch of fun brain challenges that have to be done somewhat quickly, and you get to test out everything from your memory to your coordination and speed. 

You go through a deck of challenges, rapidly solving puzzles to collect tokens while you use your powers of observation, multitasking and other abilities. There are even some sensory games, which makes this one even more unique. It's for 2-6 players, ages 8 and up.

We made a lion-shaped cake once that was pretty awesome, but we usually just like to "paint" our cupcakes as characters or animals with icing tubes. So when I shared these little corgi bread buns with them, I knew they'd be a hit! All of the kids seem to be super into corgis right now anyway, which means these buns would be great for a kid party, right?

Boeing HorizonX Has Been Investing In Miniature Ion Propulsion Engines

    Boeing has been in the news a lot lately. Unfortunately, a lot of the media coverage has been about problems at the company with respect to space projects. Boeing unexpectedly pulled out of a DARPA spaceplane project without any explanation. Very recently, the failure of the test for a manned launch vehicle was attributed to software.
