“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Autopoetic Twinkies

Twinkies may be no more following a request by Hostess to go bankrupt. I recall my fascination with them as a Brit reading Spider-Man comics in the 70s. Unavailable in the UK and very strange...

I used to be friends with this guy who worked in the Twinkies factory. He was ordered, like all employees, not to eat the products at a certain stage of their production. Why?

Well there are the obvious reasons, but here's a weird one: they cook themselves.

That orange skin they have? It's just the creamy interior reacting with air at a certain phase of production...
