I found out that being a chef has its perks. And I'm not just talking about scaring little kids with your big bloody knife. I went to a busy Indian restaurant with some friends after work, and was still wearing my chef's outfit (though I had put away the knife). I had a feeling our service was a bit faster than usual. We were seated immediately while others had to wait. Our plate of rice and glasses of water were always refilled quickly. Our food was very good. Not only that, but after the main course, we were presented with complimentary tea and desserts. Right before we were about to leave, our waiter asked me what I had thought of the food. He looked disappointed when I told him I wasn't really a chef...

Worst Song or Best Song?

Scientists have carefully constructed the most unwanted music. However, in a weird reverse-Frankenstein, the 22 minute song is actually pretty good. The same auditory elements that are so undesirable, when combined together, actually make for a pretty awesome song. And yes, there is opera rap.
