I read 4chan so you don't have to.

I'm going to admit something to you that will either skew or solidify your impression of me. Then again, it will probably make no difference one way or another, because you won't know what I'm talking about. Anyway, my confession is this: Sometimes I read 4chan (don't click that link - read the disclaimer below)... and I like it. In fact, I find much of what goes on there quite hilarious. Now, I'm talking about the tame places, people - the Interests section, the Creative section, that sort of stuff.  I don't venture into the other arenas because frankly, you can't unsee what has been seen and there's not enough brain bleach or unicorn chasers in the world to get some of that stuff out of your head.

DISCLAIMER: 4chan is not safe for work. It's probably not safe for home, either. I don't recommend you go to 4chan. You probably won't like what you find there. It will make your head hurt until you figure out what's going on (if you ever figure it out at all). 4chan is not for the faint of heart, nor the tender of spirit.

However... as I said, I go there sometimes, and find hidden gems of genius, which is why I'm posting about 4chan tonight. Some god-like epicure posted a recipe that I will have to try sometime when I'm craving something chocolaty:
Two Minute Brownies

4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp oil

stick it all in a coffee mug

microwave for a minute and a half


Some brave souls tested it out and found it to be pretty good. Recommendations included mixing the stuff really well, adding a bit more sugar, adding chocolate chips, and whatever you do, don't use olive oil or the brownies will be full of fail.

If you try this, let me know how it turns out and I'll do the same.
