The world's largest set of shark teeth is about to hit the auction market. These Megaladon chompers will be placed up for bid in Dallas, Texas this June at the Heritage Auction Galleries. With over 182 actual teeth, this Megaladon shark can exceed 100 feet in length and display teeth more than 7 inches across. Yowza!!

This image is rare in the Motor City, but with oil prices jumping up to $103 a barrel I expect to see additional stations popping up. Lawrence Technological University in Southfield offers the first active "charging station" that I've seen. Just pull your electric car into one of the spots and receive a quick pick me up to get you to your next destination.
It will be interesting to see a shift from traditional gas stations to electric vehicle charging stations over the next decade. This New York Times article looks at some complications with the switch, including potential grid overloads and a need for new infrastructures. The pics from California are wild, seems like everyone is so accustomed them already!

On a trip to sunny Florida last March, Andrea, the sweetest girl ever, introduced me to the concept of a Colombian Hot Dog. I'm not sure if it was actual ingredients or her authentic Colombian accent that sold me on the treat. Seriously, she is so cute. Hopefully I can explain it correctly:
First, boil the hot dogs in Cola. I know, weird, right? But I'm sure it's amazing. Top the dogs with cole saw, pineapple, a ketchup & mayo mixture, and mustard. Finish things up by adding a layer of crunched up Better Made potato chips (my favorite!).
I haven't stopped thinking about this magical creation since I heard about it! I bet these are just as good with chicken or veggie sausages. Yum!
