1 The Universal Tea Machine is a tea-making device, a primitive computer, and a pinball machine. And if you can perform binary addition, it will make you a (free!) cup of tea with milk and sugar. [Edible Geography]

2 This sneaky little pug knows how to grab food from a much larger dog (it sort of rolls over submissively, as close to the food as possible, then gets at it upside down). [YouTube via MetaFilter]

3 The novelist Colson Whitehead counts Bill Buford’s Heat as one of the best books he’s read lately. [Rumpus]
