Do you keep your butter in the refrigerator? You do? Stop it. Stop it right this second. You’re ruining your butter experience and making your toast taste like failure. Let me tell you why.

For centuries, before refrigeration, an old Russian practice was to drop a frog into a bucket of milk to keep the milk from spoiling. In modern times, many believed that this was nothing more than an old wives' tale. But researchers at Moscow State University, led by organic chemist Dr. Albert Lebedev, have shown that…
So this is the situation. Human tastings are a crucial component in milk safety evaluations and by extension the dairy industry as a whole. So the Future Farmers of America (FFA) have an event called the Milk Quality and Products Career Development. A big part of it is a milk tasting contest for high school students,…
If you were an advertising executive tasked with selling chocolate milk, what approach would you take? Fun cartoon characters? Promoting the health benefits of calcium? Touting its delicious taste?

Jugs! There, I got your attention. But, similar to the spate of twee tea infusers of late, a gimmicky milk jug is a great thing. This one, which features udders, will never let you forget what you're actually pouring voer your cereal: 2% cow juice.
Researchers from Pontificia University Católica in Santiago, Chile, have determined with cold hard science that milk is definitively superior to water, as far as cereal liquids go.
Kevin Rose is Google's newest employee. If you don't know Kevin Rose, he's the mastermind behind the rise (and fall) of the social news site, Digg. But for the last year, he's been wrapped up in Milk, a mobile app incubator that has hatched a grand total of one app: the now-defunct social review app Oink. This raises…
When I was a kid, there used to be a mason jar in my house that was always kept just out of my reach. It looked like it was filled yogurt, but grosser. Runny, chunky, with a sickly yellow color. I didn't find out until years later that it was actually the most delicious milk liqueur I've ever tasted.
I'm having a hard time believing this, but these women are wearing clothes actually made with real milk. Yes, the liquid white stuff. The milk fabric was created by 28-yo German biologist and fashion designer Anke Domaske.

We've seen cheese made from breast milk, but icecream? That's a little too close to home for me. If the thought of mother's milk appeals to you, you can hotfoot it to the Icecreamists parlor in London's Covent Garden, which is selling the Baby Gaga bowl of icecream for £14 ($22).
There is such thing as human cheese. How is it human? Well, er, it's made from the breast milk of women. Human women. That's not gross, right? It's breast milk, it's natural. Uh no, still gross. Would you eat it, though?
Some technologies have a definitive impact in the progress of civilization that will leave a mark in Humanity forever. This utterly ridiculous contraption not one of them.
Is there anything worse than not being able to fit your giant fist into a tall glass of milk, yearning for one last Oreo dunk? No. There is literally nothing worse. But the Dipr cookie peripheral will make dips easy.
Here's an awesomely creative example of being resourceful: a Star Wars fan built a Stormtrooper helmet out of two milk jugs. Yes, that helmet in the picture was made with those plastic milk gallons in your fridge right now.
