Screaming Banner Headline of the Day

Study: chocolate lowers blood pressure

(But before you go buy that giant Hershey's bar, read the whole thing; it turns out that it's one specific kind of dark chocolate that does the trick, and only in an amount equal to about 1 1/2 Hershey's Kisses.)

And here's more news about food:
  • Chinese villagers dug up some bones that they thought came from "magic dragons," grinding them up and eating them for their supposed healing powers. But it turns out that they were actually dinosaur bones, so the job of digging has gone over to archaeologists.

  • In Winnipeg, there's a new pizza place that includes pornographic material in every box of its pizza. (And no, they didn't risk a trademark lawsuit by trying to call it "Pizza Slut.")

  • And a Hong Kong woman has been jailed for stabbing her boyfriend in the eye with a chopstick. (She had already blinded him in the other eye in a fight several years ago.)
I'll have a post of more substance tomorrow.
