Soy sauce, used in a wide variety of Japanese culinary dishes, is said

Modelling balloons are known first of all as a toy or in form of balloon
sculptures. But there are other possibilities….. On this web site we
would like to show you how to use modelling balloons to build chemical
molecules. Basically you only need balloons, a pump and some
imagination. The knots you need are shown here.

sensibilities and pursuits of the late Athanasius Kircher, SJ. Our
interests extend to the wondrous, the curious, the singular, the esoteric,
the arcane, and the sometimes hazy frontier between the plausible and
the implausible — anything that Father Kircher might find cool if

that aren't houses at all – they're architecturally-disguised electrical
substations, complete with windows, blinds, and bourgeois landscaping.
