    3D Stereoscopic Photography

    This is a simple and elegant solution for a quick and cheap viewer. I see that several people are having difficulty, and are hung up on only one variable -- the lens diopter. Your ability to see in 3D depends on several factors, including the interocular distance (the distance between your pupils); the focal length of the lens (in this case, diopters of 3 or 3.5); the distance between the lens of your eye and the image (through the lens); and the ability to tolerate some visual ambiguity.What might help first is to close one eye and look through the lens at the stereo image. Move the card forward and back until the image is in sharp focus; then open both eyes.If you still have trouble resolving the 3D, you might cut a piece of cardboard that is the length of the distance where you have ...

You might also practice free vision stereo without the lenses by simply looking at the card until you can resolve the image so that you get a feel for the 3D version.

    Copycat Sous Vide Eggs ( STARBUCKS )

    This recipe is basically the Anova site recipe without the blender. I've tried the Anova recipe, which was fluffy and delicate. I used a tablespoon of mild green chilis in some, a bit of ham in others. Also, the 4 ounce canning jars aren't easy to find, except to order a dozen on Amazon."Finishing" the eggs -- broiling the tops, or frying them -- makes for a better presentation. You can also go "hipster" and serve the eggs in their jars. Use paprika or cayenne to give flavor and color on the top, before cooking.I thought that silicone muffin liners might add another dimension, but haven't tried it yet. And, sure, bacon is great, but you could run through a multitude of vegetarian options with onions, mushrooms, and peppers (hot and mild).

    I presume their subcontractors have pre-made forms. Not hard to imagine, I suppose. What's the optimal width to re-heat in a coffee shop?
