Coyoty drinks Amontillado.


Amontillado sherry, originally uploaded by Coyoty.

Savory & James Amontillado sherry. A product of Spain.

I saw this in a liquor store after recently encountering Poe puns in two different forums, so I figured it was a sign I had to try it. It was more like a warning sign.

If this is typical sherry, I think I'll avoid it. It's not *bad*, and I'll finish the bottle, but it's just a little too yeasty for me.

Vending machine makes pizza in three minutes.

An Italian developer, with the help of Unilever and the University of Bologna, has come up with a machine that makes pizza in three minutes, which is upsetting Italian restaurant owners.  The machine provides four different types of pizza, depending on the local favorites.

Click the picture for video.

The end result looks like what you would expect from a machine, and I imagine the taste would be too, so I don't think the restaurant owners have anything to worry about.

A name you can take to the bank...

More evidence that people in government seem to be hired based on their name:  The U.S. Treasury's Interim Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Stability is Neel Kashkari.  Pronounced "cash carry".
