Cooking is basically edible chemistry so measuring is kind of important. Well, not always. But you do have to get certain measurements and temperatures at least in the ball park. So if you’re just learning how to cook, measuring things is pretty essential.
And now for something completely different.
There’s oil in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s BP’s fault and lots of us a pretty fucking pissed at them. Problem is, they’re not going to clean the shit up. At least not soon. And even though it’s their fucking fault, we can’t just let this sludge continue to choke the Gulf. We’ve got to do something.
I wish I could draw the oil away, but my pen isn’t that mighty. But what I can do is join in a worthy cause and donate some art. Illustrator Carly Monardo gathered a group of webcomic artists to raise money through the Web-Comics Auction For The Gulf Coast. Some really amazing artists have donated work including Jon Rosenberg, Kate Beaton, Phil Foglio, and my good webcomic homey Ross Nover. Each day this week new pieces of art go up for auction starting at just $5. Knowing the talented roster, that price is gonna go right up. Each auction will last for nine days. My piece goes up today.
So if you want to get your hands on some truly amazing artwork and help with the sludgy oil cleanup, head on over to the Web-Comics Auction For The Gulf Coast.
