For pig farmers, Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome is a disaster. Once dubbed the "mystery swine disease", it emerged in the late 1980s on farms in Europe and the US and spread rapidly, causing piglets to die and adult pigs to be afflicted with fever, lethargy and respiratory distress.

The internet's obsession with all things bacon shows no signs of slowing, but for some reason it's happy to ignore the biggest downside to frying up that fat-filled treat: the layer of grease that ends up splattered all over your kitchen. At least someone has acknowledged the problem, and created a brilliantly simple solution.
Video: When you use a laser to cook bacon, you might not get the same invigorating, impossible to resist smell you do when you fry it but you do score some awesome points for using a freaking laser to cook bacon. Munchies went to Japan to see how laser cooking a bacon strip is done: it requires laser cutting tech and detailed mapping to cook the strip of bacon exactly the way you want it.

In a recent report on processed meat and risk of bowel cancer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) stated: that each 50 gram portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 18 per cent.

Video: Competitive shooter Dustin Ellermann cooks bacon using his M16 rifle in a video that is a perfect example of what MURICA, F**K YEAH means.

Foodbeast found a new KFC Double Down burger that is even more insane than the original: the Zinger Double Down King at KFCs in Korea. Instead of just sandwiching bacon and cheese with two fried chicken filets, this Double Down uses the same fried chicken for buns but adds a sauced up burger patty in between too.

This video explains what it is that makes everyone rush to the kitchen every time bacon is being fried. It has to do with the 150 volatile organic compounds that contribute to its incredibly meaty aroma. Now science has to explain why bacon makes every dish better although I guess it's for the same reason.
I get that Bacon is tasty, tasty stuff. Except perhaps in a milkshake. I thought that was the logical bacon low point. But a Bacon Coffin being an actual… thing?
Cuff links, multitools and money clips are second only to vasectomies on the list of crap wants -- some bacon to go along with the, um, cuff links, multitools and money clips.

While chatter between the US Air Force is spoken exclusively in English, communications between their aircrafts' electronic systems is more akin to the United Nations cafeteria -- a "dog's breakfast of different datalinks," according to Lt. Gen. William Lord. Since the numerous competing defence contractors tasked with building military aircraft often install contradicting and incompatible systems, the USAF employs a pair of legacy NASA fliers to act as battlefield interpreters.
