Pizza Delivery Prank

The video would’ve been funnier if it had stopped when they opened the door, so I think it’s debatable whether the second half of the movie is a prank.

Hellbent for Cooking

posted by Stal on 2010.01.27, under Stal

Looking for a headbanging new cookbook for yourself? Ready to trade in advice from Martha for tirades from Mayhem or Gwar? Annick Giroux has written an international heavy metal cookbook titled Hellbent for Cooking, chock full of recipes from metal bands, hailing from over 30 countries.

The dishes are actually mostly tame (e.g. no offal) regional recipes from the band’s country. Still, I would love to tuck into a bowl of Macaroni Against Monotheism (involves 666 g of ground pork, pasta sauce and macaroni), or to sip from Richard Christy from Death’s trademark cocktail (the mighty Viking Testicle).

Following up on the debate over demand for escort services…economists take note–the University of Leeds has a job for you.

You will work on an ESRC funded study on the rise and regulation of lap dancing and the place of sexual labour and consumption in the night time economy. The post will involve qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis. It is based in Leeds, although some travel to other cities may be necessary.

Who said economics was boring?
