From the Los Angeles Times's Daily Dish column: Maybe you've seen it: Boing Boing Video recently did a video of Popular Science columnist Theodore Gray turning bacon (OK, well, prosciutto, which he calls "Italian for 'expensive bacon' ") into an edible thermal lance he uses to cut metal. The video, "Bacon: The Other White Heat," is pretty amazing and gives me a whole new respect for my favorite food. Gray also includes a vegetarian version of the lance toward the end of the video ... kinda gives me a whole new respect for cucumbers, too.
