Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Mullin's] microbe has thrived on cotton waste, a pure cellulose composed of fibers, twigs and seeds; on bagasse, the mulchlike residue of squeezed sugar cane; and on chopped-up copies of the city’s main newspaper, The Times-Picayune."

This commercial made me cringe. (via Healthy is the New Skinny)
