Food and Drink

From Cracked comes a list of the world's most terrifying foods. This is not -- I repeat, NOT -- for the weak-stomached. Let's put it this way...these are two of the more appetizing sentences on display:
Casu Marzu is a sheep's milk cheese that has been deliberately infested by a Piophila casei, the "cheese fly." The result is a maggot-ridden, weeping stink bomb in an advanced state of decomposition.
Um, yeah.

If that's not your kind of thing (read: if you're not batcrap-crazy), perhaps this highly entertaining report card on beers is more your thing:
The bottled version is heavenly, but in a can it goes warm instantly and is flat after three sips. If apples could urinate, they would pee this beverage. Drinkers in the room dubbed it "the Kool Aid of beers" and "liquid homelessness." Rating: Really bad.
But fear not. Unlike the food link (for which I'll probably be apologizing as long as the blog exists, and maybe even long after that), other ratings for the beers include "extremely outstanding," "unstoppable," and "freedom." Also, there are more entries in the series here, here, and here. Oh, jeez, and here.
