Google, democracy and the truth about internet search | Technology | The Guardian

This is just plain bad. Very, very bad.

Why does Google even feel the need to complete my question?

There's something to be said for the fact that an anonymous search on Google for "is google" gives Is Google Making Us Stupid? - The Atlantic as its top result.

Robyn Williams, of ABC, says that "Chickpeas, for example, may have the nutritional value of cardboard".

That'll be news to most of the nutritionists I know. And to the International Year of Pulses.

And the proof of the muffin ...

Much to my amazement, these do in fact resemble English muffins. Thanks for prompting me to try @1000bitesofbread May even attempt a write up. #sourdough.

What have I got myself into? Keen to try @1000bitesofbread sourdough muffins, but 100% hydration is way beyond my ability to handle, water slick or no. Consulted the oracle (Elizabeth David) and her dough is 93% plus she shapes by hand and uses rice flour to prevent sticking. I have added flour to take it to a bit more than 90% and will now see about shaping.

Later still. I hope I don't forget to get the money shot.
