In 10 Days We Will Have a Total Eclipse, So How About Some Food Ideas For Those Obsessed By 2 Min and 20 Seconds Of Darkness?

By Tim

Remove the lettuce/tomato and add a halo of cheese…Total Eclipse Burger!©

The great thing about the tablet server here is that it is meant to test the limits of tablets/notebooks, etc, in addition to providing info about those devices.

But….it also means I can use it to convey other sorts of info that suits me. There are no rules here, except those I enforce such as comments and registration requirements. After all, this is MY domain and my tablets that these are served from, so moving on…

We are a mere 10 days away from a total solar eclipse here in Kentucky and pretty much across a huge swath of the USA. While that offers no excitement to myself, because I just walked outside and noticed the Earth was blocking the sun, or as we normally call it, night….some folks are going to go nuts over this short term daylight darkness and therefore the reason for this post.

So I have a few ideas for the local food joints, whether they be McDonald’s or Taco Bell, etc, or just the locals hosting a party. I do expect that any commercial enterprise reimburse me for my genius, but that is neither here nor there.

So take a moment to look at the image at the top of the article. Yep black bread, now imagine if you will a sandwich using that bread with a slightly larger circular piece of cheese creating the same halo effect the eclipse will! Yeah, that would be an Eclipse Burger© or more specifically a Total Eclipse Burger©! Or Eclipse sandwich of any sort!

Or how about a pizza with ground beef in the middle surrounded by a golden circle of cheese! Yeah, the Total Eclipse Pizza©! Same with a circular plate of nachos…can ya hear me Taco Bell?

If you want to know how to make that black bread, read this article I found.  There are other methods of having black bread, but this one looks truly black! No need to thank me for my brilliance, just send money!

That is all from the skunk works this evening,

Tim

In attempt to achieve YouTube stardom, woman accidentally kills her boyfriend

These 2 definitely win the complete idiots of the week award! I know this isn’t tablet related but such stupidity deserves publication.

A Minnesota woman has been charged with manslaughter after she shot and killed her boyfriend as part of the pair’s attempt to become YouTube celebrities.

According to court documents, Monalisa Perez called 911 on June 26 at around 6:30pm local time to say that she had shot Pedro Ruiz III. The two had set up two video cameras to capture Perez firing the gun at Ruiz while he held a book in front of his chest. Ruiz apparently convinced Perez that the book would stop the bullet from a foot away. The gun, a Desert Eagle .50 caliber pistol, was not hindered by the book.

Ruiz, who was found with a single gunshot in his chest, was pronounced dead at the scene.

It Is Saturday and Time For The HiBook News: This Edition – Row Boats From the Netherlands Are Slow

By Tim

Perhaps the Row Boat Sank?

Today makes it 33 days since my Comfast dual band wireless adapter was shipped by Gearbest from the Netherlands (according to my order info). My only conclusion is that folks in Europe are still sending packages via row boat or sailing ships.

Lets look at the example of the dirt cheap mouse I ordered from Amazon a few months back. It arrived from Shenzhen, China in 8 days. Th current item is no bigger than a thumb drive and still has yet to make it to my mailbox.

Based on experience, stuff from China never takes more than 18 days to arrive by mail. This being the first time I have ever ordered and had shipped from Europe, I can only reach one conclusion and that is those row boats from Europe are mighty damned slow!

I sure would like to be running some tests on this gizmo, but hard to do without the gizmo in hand! The irony here of course is that I ordered from a Chinese retailer and it was shipped from a European warehouse, which is half the distance away and it has yet to arrive.

Perhaps when I arrive home today it will be there, but I am guessing that it won’t be. By the way, the server here, running on a tablet, has over 500 posts! (It would have more but no one registers and posts).

That is all for now,

Tim
