Hilarious post on slashdot.org today on how to cook an egg with two mobile phones and a radio. Thanks to John Tokash for pointing it out to me.

Clearly, there’s no way it will work, but you gotta love the buzz that the thing caused. Here at Homestead, I defied tons of people when I told them I could cook a chicken with a 100W light bulb.  They said it wouldn’t work, but it did!

Just get a terra cotta pot (for plants), add one chicken, and one 100W light bulb and you have yourself an adult version of an Easy Bake oven.  I stuck in a digital food thermometer, and it took about 5 hours to reach a safe eating temperature (to be safe, I let it go to 170 degrees F), and it actually wasn’t bad.  A little bland, but the dark meat was cooked perfectly (the white meat was overdone).

Take that, ye of little faith!
