Ask the Internet for potato salad and you'll have an OK side dish. Ask the Internet to help you make potato salad and you'll find yourself awash in unexpected donations.
Earlier this month, an Ohio man who calls himself Zach Danger Brown realized he had never once in his life made potato salad. As a lark, Brown decided to crowdsource his first-ever attempt at the classic side dish, setting up a Kickstarter project to raise money for ingredients.
He didn't ask for much. Just $10 – enough to buy a few potatoes, some mayonnaise, and maybe some spices (for extra zest).
In an Internet full of big dreams, Brown's comically modest goal stood out. He soon gained a legion of fans who added their own spin to the gag by funding the project at levels well ahead of its founder's goals.

Louisiana's newest restaurant is just off the highway – literally. Months after 40,000 pounds of ham spilled off a Georgia onramp, a semi crash scattered thousands of corn dogs across an interstate.
According to local news station KTBS, a tractor trailer hauling a load full of packaged corn dogs overturned on I-220 outside of Shreveport, La., Tuesday morning, spilling 75,000 sticks of the fried snack across the highway. There were no injuries, but the mounds of spilled dogs caused nine hours of delays while police cleaned up the delicious debris.

Cereal: It's what's for breakfast (and lunch and, sometimes, dinner).
Which is why we're happy that Friday is National Cereal Day, celebrating Americans turning their backs on the pork, beef and alcohol they used to enjoy in their morning meals in favor of oats, grains and corn syrup.
To celebrate the occasion, why not pour out a big bowl of your favorite cereal – Grape-Nuts with blueberry syrup, we're talking to you – and load up Netflix with these films, which we've reimagined to be cereal-themed.
