Wordpress thinks "hydrocolloid recipe collection" can possibly be related to this entry. Weird!

That's an ancient Aztec healing ritual too! Amazing! -P

Maybe the Notre Dame fans at the game against Syracuse should have used that recipe. They could have eaten chocolate covered snowballs instead of throwing them...AT THEIR OWN TEAM!!!
Did you hear about that?

Is there a 'repeat as necessary"?

Wiser, in the future don't read non-ND publications if the subject might make ND look bad, because invariably they will.

According to http://bluegraysky.blogspot.com/2008_11_01_archive.html#945270030513837529" rel="nofollow">people who were there, the snowballs were thrown primarily in the first quarter, and mostly either indiscriminately, at other students, or at chuckleheaded reporters or NBC personnel. If they hit players, it was an accident. Note that after the game, the team came and sang the Alma Mater in front of the student section without incident.

But clearly that writer didn't watch the game; otherwise he wouldn't have ended with "If only kicker Brandon Walker had the aim of those snowball fighters." Had he seen the game, he would have known that Walker's aim was true, but the kicks were short. He also has no idea that Flinging Stuff is a time-honored tradition on Senior Day. Generally, it's marshmallows, but snow is more fun.

Now, lighter stuff. I cannot let this post pass by without posting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnNYXgV7L-c" rel="nofollow">this in a comment. (minor content warning, but if you laughed at this post, you'll laugh at this).
