Have you ever improperly used technology for the sake of food?

  • This is what happens when a high-powered scanner meets a candy bar.
I had a roommate just after college with a job that gave him access to liquid nitrogen. Now the words "just after college" and "liquid nitrogen" should never be uttered in the same sentence. Case in point, said roommate's desire to have a frozen Snickers bar.

After dropping a standard Snickers bar in the container of liquid nitrogen, there was only one small problem: The fingers on his gloves kept freezing as he tried to scoop it out. Contrast that with the latest procrastination website making the rounds — Scandybars (high-resolution scans of the cross-sections of popular candy bars) — and you can see that office equipment is often used for purposes that the manufacturers likely never intended. Have you ever appropriated (misappropriated) electronics for gustatory purposes?
