Wow is this a great ad for english muffins and backhoes. After this semi truck driver got stuck attempting a U-Turn across some railroad tracks, a bunch of random dudes showed up to see what was going on. With knowledge of a train coming, someone came in with a backhoe to help this truck driver get unstuck. Meanwhile, the camera guy just keeps calling this truck driver a dumbass. The real man of the hour here is whoever's driving that backhoe.

Dude Makes Bread from 4,500 Year Old Yeast Sample

Amateur Gastroegyptologist Seamus Blackley came across what he very much hopes are isolated strains of yeast off a few 4,500 year old Egyptian pots and figured it would be a good idea to make some bread out of it. He even went as far to make the dough out of grain used around the time the yeast would have been active, since what we know as modern wheat didn't exist at the time. Anyway, he baked a loaf and was able to taste some (hopefully) authentic ancient bread.
