What happens when a robot writes the news? Bot scrapes RSS feeds of news sites every 3 hours and rewrites the headlines.

My favorite headline, at the top of the sidebar as I write this and probably to be gone soon, is: "Am i 1% cheese?"

RocketNews24 has a video of a class on making tempura and lettuce out of wax two of the reporters took at a fake-food-sample place in Asakusa. (link goes to article. Video linked in there, and I highly recommend watching it!)

Here's what happens when a man eats nothing but food made for women.
When I began my exploration of gendered food items, I was hoping for a dramatic payoff. Perhaps a set of fuzzy breasts sprouting from my chest, or some semblance of emotional intelligence, or at least a clearer understanding of how cereal, salad, and trail mix can be feminine. Instead, I got a pile of cardboard packaging and confirmation of my thesis: marketing something as “for women” -- the pinks and purples, the low-calorie labels, the suggestions that life is just sooooo crazy and women need to take a break with a thumbnail-sized brownie -- is the dumbest gimmick in food marketing.

ETA: I feel the need to note that Toby's favorite cereal at the moment is one of those in the article that's marketed as women's food: Special K (the vanilla and almond variety? I forget) and today he made me an omelette and bacon and he ate Special K.
