Time for a Cronut

Today I learnt that Chronos is the ancient Greek god of Time. Not to be confused with Cronus the titan who fathered Zeus greatest of all the Greek gods. Neither are to be confused with Cronut the tasty but over-rated combination of a croissant and a donut invented in 2012. Chronos the god is sometimes represented as a three headed serpent. Cronus the titan used a sickle to castrate Uranus, god of the sky (I know!) And Cronut the baked confectionary just sits there looking enticing. The original Cronut is approximately 230g and 1330 calories. Sadly there is no record of either Cronos or Cronus ever enjoying a Cronut.

Keep it Clean

Not to be a downer or nothin', but between the overuse of anti-bacterial hand-santiser and the overuse of antibiotics making them less efficacious against bacteria, we're pretty much one-sneezing-guy-on-a-plane-ride-who-turns-out-to-be-patient-zero away from a Steven-Soderburgh's-CONTAGION-what-happened-to-the-top-of-Gwyneth's-skull? scenario. If I go first, you can have my 1977 Star Wars bubble gum cards.
