Here is the horrifying tale of a woman who dislocated her jaw trying to eat a giant burger! But it happened all the way in Liverpool, so we're probably safe. The burger in question was a triple-patty monster "containing pretzels and candied bacon," hilariously called the "Kids in America" burger (pictured above). Somehow, despite being big enough to literally break someone's face, it's kinda standard issue at Almost Famous, a place that specializes in burgers that a) out-America America, and b) are completely confounding.
For instance, I can't figure out this special (it is possible that link might be NSFW in some workplaces) even with a full ingredient list and a photo and a full-page explanatory comic. Like, did they make a thing called 'nduja sausage cheese, or are those three separate thoughts? Why would sweet potato chips get involved in this at all? Why do I kind of want to try this even though it's a British hamburger topped with an entire pantry and I already know it's going to dislocate my jaw?
- The Atlantic's Derek Thompson takes on the facts and figures regarding income inequality in the U.S., PIE STYLE. (Note: "Pie Style" is probably a registered trademark of this guy, but I think it's OK because his pies are actually the ones featured in the video, and I do have a pretty keen legal mind.) That is to say, the pie charts they employ are actual pies—just a lot more informative than the pies you're probably used to. (I say "probably" because look, I don't know for a fact what you and your pies get up to.)
- A math teacher from upstate NY worked out that Double Stuf Oreos actually only have 1.86x the, um, "stuf," but honestly, why were you even buying the Double Stuf ones in the first place? Normal Oreos are already perfect! (via HuffPo)
