I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but the other day I ate mold. I had made a sandwich with ham (you know that paper thin uber-processed stuff that is 79 cents a pack?) that was questionable, but since my pay at the publishing house is abysmal I decided to throw caution to the wind in order to aviod wasting 79 cents.
Then I forgot the sandwich on my kitchen counter, where it sat all day. Luckily Kyoko took me to lunch. When I got home I found the sandwich, put it in the fridge, and took it to work with me the next day. When I ate it, I tasted dirt…sure enough, it was growing patches of green mold.
You know I could have avoided all this with the SensorFreshQ? The SensorFreshQ is a small handheld gizmo that takes samples of the air to detect bacteria. A green light means the meat is fresh, a yellow means it’s edible but eh, and red means no way, jose! In lay terms, it sniffs your meat for you and tells you if its good or bad. At $89.95, it might seem like a silly way to fling money around, but one must remember that some people have very sensitive little olfactories, and that others (like me) have bad judgement. If you live with (or are) a carnivore with no sense of smell, this is probably a good investment. If you can stand to smell your own rotten meat, maybe its better to save the money for a really sharp meat cleaver.
