Weird News – Watch robots run a marathon!
We’re glad in many ways that it’s going to take these bi-pedal bots a whole weekend to run a marathon – it means we get all weekend to watch the live Ustream video AND it means we don’t have to worry about outrunning them when they take over.

Recipes – Google Gears Up to Become Next Julia Child
Ok, so this isn’t a recipe, but it’s going to make finding one even easier! Google has been playing with a feature called snippets since last April, and it was widely used for creating search result-friendly clips of recipes, including pictures of the finished dish and a short blurb on what culinary creation is waiting beyond the link.
Now Google’s taken that feature one step further by creating a “recipes” result on the left navigation, allowing you to only search recipes and even target specific ingredients, cooking methods and more. It indexes from many of the major recipe collectives – AllKitchens, Food Network, Epicurious – and puts them all in one simple place. Now you don’t have any excuse when you don’t know what to make for dinner.
