Back in the dark ages before DVR and DVD, folks used to have "videocassette recorders", or VCRs, in their homes for time-shifting TV and watching movies. Now that we don't need such things any more, we can make VCRs useful again by converting them into toasters, according to this brilliant tutorial at Instructables. And yes, the toast really does come out with "VHS" stamped on it.
Disclaimer: I didn't actually try this. I'm assuming it's real. Don't burn your house down.
Hey, hockey fans and other owners of televisions! Next Saturday it's time again for Hockey Day in Canada, a coast-to-coast, 13-hour event that includes zillions of little local features about hockey plus 3 all-Canadian NHL games. This year, those of us in the U.S. can watch the whole thing on NHL Network. If you like hockey or you just want to gain some insight into a fundamental element of Canadian culture, check it out, especially the first 3 hours that take place before the first NHL game starts.
