The bag of frozen vegetables i got at Costco says that 1 serving (90 calories) is about 85 grams. However if i measure out 255 grams of frozen vegetables and then cook them, when i'm done they only weigh about 225-230 grams. I presume they meant the frozen weight since that's the point you would normally be measuring (again, i presume) but i'm not actually sure.

It makes me happy when old and relatively rare books that i really enjoyed get reprinted, but why do they have to reprint them as trade paperbacks? Trade paperbacks seem to combine the worst attributes of both normal paperbacks and hardbacks =P

I'm pretty sure i have every single Futurama episode on DVD, so why do i always get excited when i'm able to catch an episode on the Comedy Network?
