Today's video of the day is some speed cooking. Some serious speed cooking. Shoot some shrimp out of a cannon, make sure it gets flour, egg and breadcrumbs, and then through the fire, and you should have some fried shrimp in seconds. Some seem to think this couldn't work and the cooked shrimp is fake. Either way, the cannon and fire are real, so that makes it worth it enough.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web.
