Tastes like high blood pressure

This is my nomination for the most amazing thing I've seen today. And, well, since I'm the ultimate judge for what I think is amazing, I guess this slab of pink Himalayan salt wins.

Look, I like food as much as the next person. No, I'm not a foodie but I know several. And, I was initially excited by this product. It looks cool and I can imagine the "ohhs" and "ahhs" as I pull it out to cook a delicious piece of Coho salmon. Oh, yeah, I'm cooking on a rock. Eat that, Le Creuset.

But, despite its magical antimicrobial powers and the description that says it's easy to clean, I'm self-aware enough to realize that I would probably slip up, put the damn thing in the dish washer, and find out an hour later that I had basically flushed $40 down the drain.

So, I think I'll be skipping the salt slab this Xmas. If, however, anyone wants to invite me over to bake some Tollhouse cookies on one, I'll bring the organic locally-made ice cream and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Why that movie? Because "life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." And it rocks.

Ahh Ferris Bueller's Day Off! I've always been like the poor man's Cameron.

It's one of my favorite movies ever.
