Several months ago I overheard someone asking how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop. Now, this question is an old one, and it is usually rhetorical, I mean, really? How many people actually know the answer?

Well, now I do.

I started with an orange flavored tootsie pop. I unwrapped it. Then I prepared a licking strategy. One lick would consist of a lick starting at the back of my tongue and dragging the lollipop down all the way to the tip. Then I would swallow and repeat. I repeated until I got to the center.

I didn’t suspect that it would be difficult to tell once I reached the center. In my mind there was going to be some pre-designated point that would tell me, “You are now here!” But no… no such luck. However, the stopping point for me was once there was no more orange taste and just chocolate taste from the tootsie roll.

How many licks did it take?

So if anyone ever asks you how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop, you can now answer.

Who doesn’t love Daleks? Sure, they may have been a bit over used in the past couple of seasons… but still, despite everything, who doesn’t love Daleks? They are probably the only thing in the history of the universe to make a plunger look scary. Well, know you can make a Dalek of your very own.

The full instructions on how to create your very own Dalek Egg can be found here, although they are a little hard to follow. Still, it might be worth the effort.

Well everyone, we all know that the moment we have been waiting for is about to arrive: the eleventh doctor premiers this weekend! I am so totally excited.
