How To Eat A Hamburger… The Proper Way!


(PCM) Having a large backyard BBQ is one of the nation’s top ways to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday with family and friends. Nothing beasts the taste of hamburgers and hot dogs straight from the grill, but did you know you are probably eating that juicy hamburger all wrong.

Nothing is more annoying than when you build the perfect burger filled with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and various condiments only have it all fall apart the second after you take your first delicious bite!

A new Japanese study has discovered the root of the problem. We are holding the burger all wrong. Majority of people grip the hamburger with their thumbs on the bottom of the bun, however to avoid the big mess of all your fixings falling out of the bun, try holding the burger balanced with your thumb and pinky finger at the bottom of the bun. The study showed that this improved ones grip on burger dramatically and prevented the ingredients from falling out.

You could also be crafting your burger all wrong. Several sources claim that a burger should be constructed in the following fashion and built up from the bottom. Start with a toasted bun on the bottom, add ketchup and mustard and pickles, then add the burger meat. Next, add cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, mayo before finishing off with the toasted top bun. The reason for the ketchup and mustard at the bottom of the burger is so they will not leak out all over you and the pickles should be there so they do not overpower the flavor of the burger meat. Definitely a useful tip!

Coachella Did NOT Cause Instagram To Crash


(PCM) Instagram users were in a frenzy this afternoon when the popular social media photo app was down for a few hours with many blaming the influx of Coachella selfies being shared for the issue. Instagram has issued a statement and claims that it was not the Coachella music festival that caused the outage.

The problem according to Instagram was a “feed delivery issue” which appears to be fixed at this time.

From the many tweets that were posted from those attending Coachella, the popular music festival in Indio, Ca, this weekend, you would have thought that the entire world was coming to an end and that Instagram was just another part of the festival.

The very best one came from comedian/actor David Spade which read “Instagram is down.  Does that mean they cancel Coachella? I mean what’s the point of going now. To hear music??”

We can’t believe that some even believed that the festival would be cancelled over a lack of Instagram use!  We love social media as much as the next person, but seriously… attention to the incredible festival happening around you and put down the phone or tablet for just a little while!

Who Needs Machines? Watch As Eighty Amish Men Pick Up A House And Move It


(PCM) A clip that was captured by a woman in Spartansburg, PA shows just how the Amish get things done, that thing being moving an entire home from one location to another with nothing but their bare hands. The use of machinery is banned in their community.

It took about eighty men to get the job done, however it was a success. The video clip shows a few men guiding the dozens who are underneath the house, move it on top of a hand-laid concrete foundation. You can watch their feet shuffling from beneath the home as it is shifted from one spot to another.

The six-minute clip has since gone viral, as people are truly amazed at the feat accomplished! It is certainly awe-inspiring to see what can be accomplished with a little bit of teamwork.
