The company has bought more than 6 million tons of sugar in this manner since 2015, enough to fill roughly 3,000 Olympic-size swimming pools at a cost of some $2. 3 billion. When in most people's lives do they come across a swimming pool full of sugar, never mind 3,000 of them. I guess if you got 3,000 more Olympic-size pools full of water and mixed them with the sugar pools, you'd have 6,000 Olympic-size pools full of simple syrup. It would take Katie Ledecky a little over two days to swim them at her 800-meter pace , though I suppose that pace would be hard to keep up for two days, or in syrup. If you combined the 6,000 pools of simple syrup with 72,000 pools of rye and 1,200 pools of bitters, you'd end up with 79,000 Olympic-size pools of old-fashioneds, or about 3 trillion cocktails, or about 400 old-fashioneds for every man, woman.

Tokyo Plays Itself - Eater

makerfairehannover Photo by drbakker on Flickr

O n the top floor of @home cafe in Tokyo’s geek-friendly Akihabara district, in a low-ceilinged, brightly lit room that smelled of a poorly ventilated deep fryer, a coterie of frilly aproned maids were delivering wobbly, abstractly decadent... " ("Welcome home, master. But with a quick glance around at the clientele, both male and female, all dazed under the spell of saccharine maid energy, it seemed like I was the only person in the room thinking about eating. @home, one of the most popular maid cafes in Tokyo, had been temporarily made over as the GudetamaX@home Collab Café , and was now adorned with the likeness of the "lazy egg" Sanrio character that's become wildly popular both in Japan and the States.

How futuristic technology is already making waves in pubs

Is it far-fetched to believe that pubs may one day be swarming with ‘selfie’ drones recording customers’ every move and automatically posting updates on social media? Or that special spectacles may be used to research online, in real-time, some of the more outlandish claims a companion might try to spin us? Is it outlandish to think those same super specs might be able to detect elevated physiological responses – such as an increased heart rate or blushing under make-up?
