Vegetarian ChiliVegetarian Chili by ilovememphis (cc by-nc-nd)

Okay, folks, time to get serious now: *s wants to win the office vegetarian chili competition. Let us not fail our comrade in need!

In other news, the mythic quest for a seriously intense brownie recipe, and the dream of a for-reals healthy muffin.

Dance, dance, dance, recently on the site:

and Swing Dancers vs. Street Dancers is a showdown between vintage and modern street dancers at Montreal Swing Riot

plus, MacArthur Genius Grant award winner, tap dancer Michelle Dorrance on Colbert

and for armchair choreographers, Gif Dance Party will free your inner Martha-Graham-Bob-Fosse-net-meme monster talent

Meanwhile on Ask Me, posters ISO "Floating" grand jeté videos, and pony dances

On refereeing competitive Tetris

TetrisTetris by Gryphus R (cc by-nc-nd)

In a thread about competitive Tetris, tournament ref Chris Higgins drops in to answer some questions about the whole experience, in this and later comments:

So, yeah — being a ref in this case did not involve the kind of ref action you'd see in boxing or other physical sports. The players were well-behaved (no cheating that I saw, no pausing, etc.). But it's a real tournament, and the players are serious. They're also using thrift store equipment that could die at any time, so I was keeping track of scores in realtime in case we lost a console, TV, etc. and I had to call whoever was ahead. Keeping track of the two scores is actually pretty hard.
