“It’s more gamey than other meat and I love the taste,” she says. “I also don’t have to feel guilty about eating it because I know it’s had a completely free range and natural life.”
A taxidermist who uses roadkill hides to craft jewelry, Brierley has dined on hare, deer, owl, and pigeon. “‘I would like to try fox and badger but they’re never in good enough condition to eat; although I have used them for my artwork,” she said.
Brierley says she has invited friends over to sample her new-found culinary quirk. “They trust me and they know I’m a good cook so I think they love it,” the 42-year-old is quoted as saying. “I get the best meat from friends who ring me up to tell me about a kill they’ve spotted on their way to work.”
Though she was already known to many as the roadkill chef from Channel 4’s Come Dine with Me, Brierley says her cravings have definitely intensified since she became pregnant.
Dino Bones In A Bottle of the Day: Tokyo-based architectural model maker Akinobu enjoys building tiny, bottled things in his spare time. His tiny dinosaur skeletons (above) are particularly delightful.
This new image of super-cluster Abell 2744 captures the wreckage of a collision between four smaller galaxy clusters. New data let astronomers map the positions of three different kinds of matter in the system, which may offer clues to how dark matter behaves when it smacks into ordinary matter.
The cluster, nicknamed “Pandora’s Cluster” for its bizarre complexity, is as massive as 1.8 quadrillion suns and contains trillions of stars. Only about 5 percent of that mass is made up of galaxies that glow in visible light.
The rest of the mass is gas (20 percent, shown here in pink) that’s so hot it’s only observable through the X-rays it emits, and dark matter (75 percent, blue), which is utterly invisible.
To figure out dark matter’s location, astronomers looked for the telltale stretching of galaxies located far behind the cluster. Huge masses warp the shape of space-time in their vicinity and bend the path of light, a phenomenon called gravitational lensing. By carefully plotting how galaxies in the background are distorted, astronomers can map where the invisible mass of dark matter lies.
Second thought: He signs it ‘B.O.’ to hide the ‘H for HUSSEIN’ in his name!
Third thought: No more coffee for me today.
Fourth thought: Is it wrong that missing space after the comma bugs me so?
It was announced previously that his tweets would have “BO” indicating they were directly from the Pres.
As for that missing space after the comma…stay away from twitter if perfection’s your bag. :) 140 mucks things up! (Or if you’re like me, eventually it becomes freeing after decades of being annoyed by non-perfection in that way.)
