Other good advice: Don’t make pasta when drunk

26Jan07

They say that a watched pot never boils, but of course that’s not true. It’s not Schrödinger’s cat; it’s a chemical reaction that’ll take place whether it’s observed or not. But the real reason not to watch a pot of water that you’ve set to boil is that all the little bubbles clinging to the bottom of the pot look like a thousand eyes staring back at you, and Jesus, it’s really creepy.
