So it's unlikely that you'll be mistaken for jell-o anytime soon.

Can I mention that jello is made from crushed up horse parts without turning this into a brony thread?

You just know there's a picture floating around the web of a bronie doing Jell-O shots.

Cow, pig, horse... all sorts of bones are used to make gelatin.

I read somewhere that the processing done to bones to make gelatin powder was extensive enough that Jell-O is kosher, despite a hefty pig content.

/look it up sometime, it's interesting how they extract the gelatin. Lots of chemicals and boiling.

You ever smelled a rendering plant? It's the smell of boiling pig/cow/etc., but not the tasty parts.

I should think the probability that Jell-O is alive increases with the number of high-quality pharmaceuticals one has ingested.

Don't see the complication. If your brain is less active than Jello, Your dead dude.

Not only is it alive, it has the right to vote in Mississippi.

Didn't some TV show just cover this? Is that all io9 is, an out-of-context recap of some TV show?

What's the difference between Jello and a Farkette?
Jello jiggles when you eat it.

Well, EEG is an old and rather crude technology. These days we have much more powerful tools like Functional MRI.

I saw Jello do the spoken word bit in Portland 5 or so years ago, he was alive then.

Man, I found my spare tire that way. At the time, it was known as a celocanth. I never thought it was jell-o that scanned my brain-waves. Well, live and learn. Thank you, Fark.

If you have the same EEG activity as spinach, you're dead Popeye.

Better start synthesizing enough for me. We have science to do!

What a coincidence, I found my spare tire by eating too much Jell-O.

I'm part of the majority that thought this was about Jello Biafra. Regardless, subby was right...this WAS stupid. I hate everything, because it is stupid and should die. Thank you for your time.
 
2012-09-26 12:38:47 AM  
I'd be more interested in a rigorous experimental verification of the assertion that there is "always room for" it. If it's true that an indefinite amount of Jello can be placed in a fixed and finite volume of three-dimensional space, it would have extraordinary implications for our understanding of space-time.

Jello died when the Dead Kennedys broke up.
