Have fun.

Now I miss Cornell.  

I remember when we used to joke about the nutritionists having 
to take cooking classes first.  I also remember a time during 
study week, when I was in the Pancake House having lunch.  
Sitting next to me were two women who were in that cooking 
class.  They were discussing the following question:

        If you substitute 8 (liquid) ounces of sugar for 1 cup 
        sugar , how will the recipe be affected?

One said that it would make it more sweet.
The other said it would make it less sweet.
I nearly choked on my meal to keep from laughing.

Ahhh.  The good old days.  
Of course, I guess they finally got the last laugh.
