MasterChef Competitor Can’t Open a Jar. She’s About to Lose…but Dad Is in the Crowd.

Dec 18, 2014 By Abraham 1

During a timed competition on Brazil’s MasterChef, one of the cooks couldn’t open a container she needed for her recipe. Without it open — and fast — she would lose.

Try as she might, however, the lid would not come loose. She even went so far as to risk her fingers and pry it off with a knife. But then…

…she looks into the crowd, and there is Dad.

And to make the story perfect, it all ended with her winning.

MasterChef Winner

Good job, dad.

Keurig Wants to Force You to Use Keurig Coffee. You Can Stop Them with a Piece of Tape…

Dec 10, 2014 By Abraham 0

Since the early 90′s, Keurig has been offering coffee machines that brew single cups of coffee. Of course, their product has evolved over the years, but a relatively recent change has their fans pretty annoyed.

More recent models of their “K-cup” machines only allow you to use Keurig brand coffees. When you try to use one of the numerous other brands available, you get an error message and the machine won’t run.

Besides infuriating many of their most loyal customers, this design change has also embroiled Keurig in lawsuits related to anti-competitive practices. So perhaps they’ll reverse the decision at some point.

In the meantime, it turns out that all you need to hack the system and use whatever brand of coffee you want is one Keurig cup and a piece of tape…

One of Michelle Obama’s biggest priorities as First Lady has been to improve the health of one of the world’s unhealthiest countries. To that end, she’s been the driver behind a movement to make school lunches more healthy.

As high schoolers watch their lunches get cut back and are served meals that are intended to be more healthy, they’ve taken to Twitter over the past year to vent their frustration.
