Raindrops are shaped like hamburger buns


raindrop

Burgers really are everywhere. A new study finds that raindrops are shaped like hamburger buns, not tears as previously thought:

“The teardrop shape of a raindrop has been accepted as fact for generations and has even inspired songwriters over the years from Dee Clark to James Blunt.

But the American space agency has discovered that in reality raindrops are shaped rather like the rather more prosaic top of a hamburger bun, round at the top and flat at the bottom.”

Fast Food Paintings – Art Show


Stopped by the Blackstone Gallery last night during the monthly Downtown Los Angeles Artwalk and checked out the “Fast Food Paintings” exhibit. Artist Mr. Lets Paint AKA John Kilduff, created an installation based on a fast food restaurant and had a bunch of burger paintings displayed all around. I still think my “Knuckle Sandwich” burger is better though =).
