Pompeii off (as opposed to ‘off to Pompeii’)

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read

    There’s a cable channel cookery programme in there.. “Risky Food”.. er.. “Extreme Cooking”.. er.. “Dangerous Dishes”.. well the name needs work.. Basically hapless celeb-chefs (or sci-cooks) are suckered into going to physically extreme locations to produce absurd dishes.. episode 1, pyroclastic toast.. (bit dusty.. and there’s the question of if you use white or brown bread) further episodes could include say, some arctic made, icecream.. some desert baked water biscuits.. anyway.. sorry.. I’ll get my coat..

  2. No, no – I’ve wanted to cook on lava for years. Cooking on a pyroclastic flow could be… well, short-lived, shall we say? But cooking on lava? Hardcore.
