Only inches away from election day we would like to suggest our American readers a social science nonfiction read:
‘One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote‘ by Dr. Seuss.
In this hardcover you’ll find, in simple rhyme, an introduction by The Cat in the Hat to the concept and practice of voting, with a focus on the American presidency! The basic principles of democracy, how political parties are formed and much, much more” on American politics is explained. Since the real Dr. Seuss is dead, the author of this book is Bonnie Worth, the illustrations are made by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu. We know ‘One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote‘ isn’t a longread, so why don’t you buy the book at seussville.com (ISBN: 978-0-399-55598-5)
Green Boiled Eggs: In our search for “surrealistic food” we also came across things you can do to an egg. The tips and tricks we found to handle eggs are mostly made to feed a child, but with a little imagination these molds (and what have you) can be a great start for a seriously beautiful and surreal meal.

More serious matters: How to Boil an Egg Etc, is a collection of simple and unusual recipes for cooking eggs from Rose Bakery.

Once the egg is placed in the mold, carefully and slowly close the top. If you close it too fast, more egg may get stuck in the middle, and you may not get the egg to fill all of the corners of the mold. If you see the egg start to escape the mold, you can use a finger to carefully poke it inwards. When the mold is closed, use the tab to fasten it.
