Unicorn Beams

Unicorn Noodles

Our unicorn today comes from nrhatch, at https://nrhatch.wordpress.com/. Her blog seems to be about self-help and humor. So if you need help (and don’t we all), or you need a good laugh, click on over and check it out.

I’m not sure if this thing she beamed me is really a unicorn. It looks suspiciously like a one-horned goat. It consists of a short, explanatory blurb, followed by a link. Boy you talk about lazy. But that’s just it, I’m not one to talk.

So I’ll go ahead and give it a shot. This time. If it works out okay, then fine. Otherwise I’m gonna have to raise my unicorn-identifying standards.

Go ahead and give it a read (won’t take long), and decide for yourself. Is this a unicorn, or have I lost my noodle?

Scientists have discovered why spaghetti noodles don’t break cleanly in two pieces.

And not just any scientists.
We are talking Nobel Prize Winning Scientists.

These are scientists who really know how to use their noodles!

  1. Reblogged this on Spirit Lights The Way and commented:

    Since I’m in hypo-drive for the summer, today’s one and only SLTW post is over at TG’s place . . . but I’ll warn you, TG thinks it looks more like a one-horned goat than a unicorn.

    I think he also called me lazy.

    • Thanks for the reblog. Man, this is confusing because I just reblogged something from your site. I think we might be able to drive people crazy with an endless loop. Sort of like telling someone in a roundhouse to pee in the corner.

  2. Unicorn indeed. Now the REAL question… why would I WANT to break my spaghetti noodles? I like to wind them up on my fork or slurp them, which is much easier if they’re not broken. If they come that way in the box, fine, but I would never do it on purpose. Who funds this kind of research? 🙂

    • I think you’re right. It is a unicorn. It’s just a little deformed by having it’s horn off-center. That makes it appear to be a one-horned goat.

      Yeah, I like to fork-wind and slurp too. Why spoil all the fun by breaking the noodles? Maybe those who are obsessed with table manners and etiquette are the fun-spoilers here.

      I think we’re the ones who fund the research. Those of us who pay taxes.

  3. I’m not sure about the unicorn – first I had to do a survey to access the article and then I got a number of pop-up windows with videos. What was this about again? … oh right. Noodles. No thanks – I’ve already had dinner.
