Bryan Wells and his wife, Pamela, put together a neat stop-motion, time-lapse video of M&Ms rising in a bowl. It only took the pair 90 minutes to place 1,832 M&Ms in the bowl, snapping photos along the way.

Now, what was the inspiration for the video? “My wife likes to track the light throughout the year. She got a jar, and for every minute of light as the days got longer, she added an M&M, showing the daylight changing over the year. We thought, ‘Why don’t we just put the jar out and do a time-lapse?’” he said.

Can we get one of these, but with truffles or bourbon please? Theeeenks.

Lunchtime poll – food taboos

A few days ago, we ran a poll asking if our readers felt that Americans' longstanding cultural taboo on the consumption of horse meat would ever lessen. Somewhat to our surprise, only 30 percent of respondents believed that it would hold firm, and the rest felt, to varying degrees, that pending economic and ecological factors, horse meat would eventually find its way onto domestic menus.

From the comments:

I don't see horse meat as a huge deal. What makes it different from eating a cow, deer, or elk? They are all mammals of a similar type, and it can be said that moose, elk, or deer are as intelligent as a horse, and many cow lovers would talk about how intelligent they are.

I don't understand why people see some meat as being wrong, and others as being normal (primates aside), and cultural bias aside I'd like to hear a valid argument against eating horse meat (or cat/dog for that matter). - Tyler
