Do you have some leftover cranberry sauce? Make a Cranberry Sunrise!
(For Shannon, with love)
Ingredients and Supplies
- Large Pilsner glass
- 2 Tbsp cranberry sauce (preferably home-made, not that canned crap)
- 2 oz vodka (substitute rum or tequila)
- 8 oz (1 cup) orange juice
- 1/2 cup of ice, cubed
- Small Measuring cup
- Add 2 Tbsp cranberry sauce to empty measuring cup
- Add 1 oz vodka to measuring cup
- With a spoon, blend cranberry sauce and vodka to form a syrup
- Put 1 oz vodka in an empty Pilsner glass
- Add 1/2 cup ice to Pilsner glass
- Pour 8 oz (1 cup) orange juice over the ice, in to the Pilsner glass
- Gently pour cranberry syrup on top of the floating ice – it will slowly sink to the bottom, forming a magenta layer at the bottom of the glass.
Garnish with orange or lime
Given a point, P on plane A, and a set of control points on plane A that correlate to a set on plane B, this document describes how to translate P to its new location P’ on plane B.
This can be used for virtual to physical mapping, or vice-versa.

Loops of Zen is a completely addictive puzzle game, in which you must rotate a grid full of puzzle shapes in order to form complete loops, with no disconnected ends.
After a few weeks playing this game, I’ve developed a few axioms that are effective tools for finding a valid solution to every board.

Chicken vs. Egg
The eternal question: Which came first?
The answer is a semantic one: What is your definition of “egg”?
Egg: A gestation device laid by birds, fish, and reptiles.
The dinosaurs laid eggs, therefore, the egg pre-dates the chicken.
Egg: A gestation device laid by birds.
Other birds pre-dated the chicken, therefore, the egg came first.
What about a “Chicken Egg”?
What IS a chicken egg?
If you define a chicken egg as: An egg LAID BY a chicken, then:
The first “chicken egg” had to follow the first chicken in order to be laid by one, thus, the chicken came first. We assume the first CHICKEN came from the egg of some other slightly different bird variety that was NOT a chicken.
If you define a chicken egg as: An egg FROM WHICH a chicken is hatched, then:
Some other slightly different bird variety laid the first CHICKEN EGG, which subsequently produced the first CHICKEN. Thus, the chicken egg came first.
