OK, I'm going to go for a walk and have a nice bowl of soup. Considering I can have a great meal in Chinatown for under five dollars, I don't know why I don't do this every day. I'm mostly motivated by hunger though, I admit. I think I must be going through some sort of metabolic shift; without any changes in my diet, I've lost about 20 pounds this year, but have to eat a lot more — I have been sooooo hungry lately!

Anyway, some of you may have seen the self-heating coffee cans on Derek's page. He was kind enough to bring me one, so I drank it, but, more importantly, dismantled it as well. Probably not the brightest thing for me to do — I admit while it was heating, there was a loud POP and I thought I was about to get my hand blown off by it. Anyway:

The top of the can.

The bottom of the can.

Welcome to the self-heating can!

Looks pretty normal from here.

There's a layer of cardboard under the label.

Some of this stuff dripped on me.

Ah, it was just insulation.

Baking soda and vinegar?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
