Want to make bread into toast in under a minute? This Turbo Toaster prototype by Oliver Newberry of London can do just that, provided you're okay with the noise that two huge jet engine-like fans blowing hot air onto the toast will make. The inspiration for this invention? The fact that his beans became cold before the toast was done heating up. To this, we have two things to say. One, who eats beans on toast? And two, why not just wait until your toast is done to make your beans? [Daily Mail]
@discounteggroll: I hope you are being ironic, since I know we Japs eat way weirder shit than this. Baked beans on toast is syrup on waffles compared to a raw egg mixed into natto and hot rice (with green onions and shoyu, of course).
Oh, for the rest of you, natto is fermented soy beans, and it smells as stank and feels as slimy as you are imagining it to be, although the flavor is not particularly strong, once you get past the sticky sliminess of it.
