For 25 years, it's been a one of a kind research center, even inspiring a popular novel. Now Tyler O'Brien at the University of Northern Iowa is applying for a grant to create another research center - one that will expose their subjects to different climates than those typically found in eastern Tennessee. more inside

Braaaaaaaaaains Queasy George - crumbed lambs brains and lard sandwiches...it's quite surprising I made it to adulthood considering the food I relished as a child. Fighting over and winning the last cold crumbed lambs brain in Nanna's fridge was a rite of passage. C'mon spill the beans - do any of your former favourites come back to haunt you in the hungry wee hours? more inside
Purple people. I don't know what it is about the color, but some people are passionate about it and let it dominate their lives. They are easy to pick out because they are the ones dressed head to toe in purple. They have entire stores dedicated to the lifestyle. They scare me. Can anyone explain to it to me? [If anyone out there is a purple person, I don't mean to offend you. Please just explain yourself.]
