Let's Make Robots!

Why not to nuke a frozen pizza?


In line with a profound scientific principle to disclose failures as well as successes, I present you with the ghastly results of an inadvertent culinary experiment in my gastrolab this evening.

Notice the total incongruity of the specimen prepared by means of magnetron (720 kJ over a period of 900 seconds) with the aspired result as documented by my esteemed colleague Herr Dr August Oetker.


Your faithful investigator can now confirm the internationally posed hypothesis that the resulting dish was every bit as crunchy as this photograph would suggest. Although, admittedly, the crunchiness was not recorded in accordance with CIA standards.

Relevance of these findings can be sought after in two, robotics related, fields. If not more. (But, unfortunately, were never properly actualized.)

  1. The threatening malnourishment of the scientist would seriously affect his or her ability to persevere in the studies of everything robotic.
  2. The cardboard-like consistency and shape of the final product might entice the robot builder to avoid the product packaging as a valid material for prototyping robots. Or worse, he or she might opt to build full blown automatons with the energetically enriched dough altogether for the dehydrated pastry make for even sturdier constructions. Presumably.

All roboticists in the LMR scientific community are hereby cordially invited to repeat this experiment and report their findings below.

Oh, this is how my frozen pizza turned out from nuking:


I just restored the original "main picture" from the deleted walk through. As you can see, there are some concentric quality zones in my pizza too.

I did not bother to test samples from each ring. I could (in the name of science) retrieve the pizza from the garbage bin, but that would be unethical. The bin quite liked the pizza! 

That... is beautiful.
Shame on you! You should have know that the hull integrity field would collapse at sustained high warp! Neelix's ration cube soup for dinner tonight :p
I had Funghi, rather than Tonno (Sorry Captain!) last night. Call it a compromise between discipline and consolation food.

... I moved this piece of pseudo science into the less scientific annals of the LMR blogs.

Thanks for keeping us straight webmaster!
