Chocolate teapots

During a bit of badinage with my Canadian friend, El Mouster del Echo (just practicing my Brazilian Carrie :-)), the subject of chocolate teapots came up (as it would).

Now we all know that people residing in the Americas don't drink tea, they sling it in Boston Harbour and go off in a hissy fit that ends up with them inventing rap music, Coke Cola, Intelligent Design and stories about WMD but I digress. Sadly there is a place in my head for name of the leader of the rebels at Boston too - Samuel Adams esq.

Anyway - here's the nub of it. I've found a smashing site which features a proper scientific test of a chocolate teapot. It's wonderful. Find it here!

That's hilarious, Nog :-)
By T+10s major structural failure was clearly in progress (Fig 6). LOL!

Rob - To keep this goatee I have to practice unusual shaving ............. :-)

Isn't it great Bluefluff? It's just so "sorted" and pukka - I believe these blokes!

PS - Word Verification = OUTUL?

That's nearly the French for "tool"...

Nogbad said...

I thought it may be another form that you, Rob and I would have to complete! :-)

That's the Open University Teapot Usage Levy.

A hilarious experiment. Has anyone seen 'BRAINIACS - science abuse' on TV?

Oh, and have a look at this.
