Your Toast Will Never Be The Same

April 2, 2009 by Natalie  

It’s simple, it’s quick, and it’s the perfect compliment to a bacon and eggs breakfast. That’s right, I’m talking about toast. With just the push of a button and a few minutes of your time, you can transform regular, old bread into golden, toasted goodness.

Look inside any kitchen and you’re bound to find a traditional toaster sitting on the counter, but just as major appliances evolve over time, the toaster has had a few updates too.

We’ve talked about some awesome toaster combinations before, but here are two unique toasters that will take your breakfast to the next level.

The VHS Toaster
This geeked-out VHS Toaster is certainly one of a kind and adds an old school touch to your toast. Insert your preferred choice of white or whole wheat bread, push play and in just a few short minutes, your VHS toast pops out the cassette slot.

toastervhs Your Toast Will Never Be The Same

While you can’t buy this baby in the store, a toast-loving mastermind has offered up instructions on how to make your own.





The Portable Toaster
The Portable Toaster is more practical but equally as cool. This device is hand held, made of reinforced ceramic and is shaped much like a cake knife. By using CarboNano technology, the ceramic knife is capable of generating enough heat to toast your bread, in about the same time it would take a conventional toaster.

toasterportable Your Toast Will Never Be The Same

The butterfly design lets you know how toasted your bread will be so you’ll never have to worry about burnt toast again. The Portable Toaster does need to be charged in between uses but it’s perfect for work, camping, or anyone who just really loves toast.

This toaster should be available sometime in 2009.

Ping-Pong Dining Table

March 31, 2009 by Gwen  

If you love ping pong and you love eating, then you’ll adore this Ping-Pong Dining Table by Hunn Wai.

Hunn Wai has crafted a beautiful, official-sized game table using hi-tech marble-like Corian with gorgeous gold lacquer patterns. The long, rectangular vase filled with delicate flowers serves as both a floral arrangement and the game-net.

ping-pong3 Ping-Pong Dining Table

Hunn Wai’s inspiration came from the origins of ping pong.

Ping pong started as a fun, after-dinner game for upper-class Victorians in the 1880s. It was a smaller, indoor version of tennis that used everyday objects as the equipment. The game would be played on the dining table with a row of books as the net, a champagne cork or knot of string as the ball, and a racket made from a cigar box lid.

The phrase “bring home the bacon” comes from the 12th century when a church in Dunmow, England offered a side of bacon to any man who could swear before God and the congregation that he had not fought or quarreled with his wife for a year and a day. Any man that could bring home the bacon was highly respected in his community.

Prior to the 17th century, bacon or bacoun was a Middle English term referring to all types of pork. The word bacon comes from the French word bako, German bakkon and Old Teutonic backe, which all mean “back”.

Fun Facts:

  • Bacon is one of the oldest meats in history dating back to 1500 BC.
  • The earliest reference of bacon was in 1560 by a London Cheesemonger.
  • In the 16th Century, European peasants would proudly display the small amount of bacon they could afford.
  • The Yorkshire and Tamworth pigs are bred specifically for bacon.
  • 70% of all bacon in the US is eaten at breakfast time.
  • More than 2 billion pounds of bacon is produced each year in the US.

As unfathomable as it is, there are those who voluntarily choose to not eat meat. Yes, it’s practically an abomination that they willingly deny themselves this succulent food group but it’s certainly no surprise to fellow carnivores that even the strictest of vegans still crave a rasher of bacon.

fake-bacon The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Smart Bacon by LightLife is a popular bacon substitute that still packs a bacon punch. However, supporters don’t deny that it doesn’t even remotely look like the real thing.

MorningStar Farms has a line a veggie meat including Veggie Bacon Strips made from tofu. It’s low in fat and cooks as fast as regular bacon but has a very play-doh-esque look.

Also, Yves Veggie Cuisine has Canadian Veggie Bacon that’s fat free and made from soy. It’s still recommended to not actually look at it while you eat it.

There’s also a wide variety of sauces you can purchase at local health food stores that will give any dish that salty, smoky taste reminiscent of bacon like Marmite, Bragg’s Liquid Amino, Tamari (soy sauce), and Torula.

Lastly, you can sprinkle any veggie dish with fake bacon bits like Bac~Os available at your local grocery store or even make your own.

Of course, even the most dedicated vegans find bacon difficult to resist, like Mandydale who recently gave up her vegetarian ways and embarked on 30 days of Pork .

If Bacon Is Wrong, I Don’t Want to be Right

Bacon is often toted as an ‘unhealthy’ food and it leaves many wondering how something so undeniably good could ever be bad?

bacon-health-chart The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Sure, there are studies that say children who eat cured meat may have a higher risk of leukemia, and nutritionists have linked bacon to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, type II diabetes and high blood pressure, but Bacon Lover Mike Nelson vowed to eat bacon for the entire month of February and much to the naysayer’s surprise, he didn’t die. Actually, Mike felt great during the 28 days of nothing but bacon. He had no cravings, his blood pressure went down, and he even lost some weight.

Then there’s Gertrude Baines, the world’s oldest woman who at 114 believes that a diet including bacon is the key to a long, healthy life.

And an amazing trio of Canadians set a new record for fastest trek across Antarctica, thanking a steady diet of deep fried bacon and butter.

Furthermore, there have been studies in the last few years that have suggested cured meats are actually healthy! They have shown to have a protective effect on damaged heart tissues post-heart attack.

The Reese brothers have seen the future and they say it tastes great! For the past decade and a half, they’ve been working on creating ‘super bacon’ that would taste the same but be even better for our bodies.

This is the ultimate how-to guide for makin’ everything bacon. In this section, fellow citizens of baconation can learn the finer points of how to prepare, smoke, cook, weave, cure and store bacon so that it is at it’s culinary finest.

  • When craving a few slices of fried bacon, there’s nothing worse than trying to thaw the frozen slab before your stomach eats itself. Using some baking sheets, you can freeze your bacon in singles or smaller sections for easy access when that craving hits you. Tip: You should freeze bacon within a week of purchasing it and you can keep it frozen for up to two months.
  • It’s the latest bacon cooking trend to intricately weave bacon slices upon bacon slices to make a masterpiece fit for a king. Use these steps or watch this video to learn how to weave your own bacon.
  • If your grandma ever made you learn how to knit a scarf, you can put those skills to good by knitting bacon. It serves no real purpose other than another awesome way to enjoy unnecessary amounts of bacon.

For those bacon purists who prefer to get hands on, you can even learn how to raise your own pig to enjoy homegrown bacon.

Raisin’ Bacon

raise-a-pig The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

So you want to raise your own bacon? It makes sense. Everyone wants the freshest, juiciest, most succulent bacon at their disposal and what better way than to raise your own swine?

First off, you need a pig. A baby pig can cost you anywhere from $20 - $65 and they take about 5 - 6 months to reach their most edible weight of 200 – 225 lbs. Now 200 lbs sounds like a lot of pig but think about it like this.

One 200 lb pig will produce approximately:

  • 24 lbs of ham
  • 20 lbs of bacon
  • 17 lbs of pork roast
  • 18 lbs of picnic shoulder
  • 7 lbs of pork chops
  • 8 lbs of sausage
  • 7 lbs of “miscellaneous” cuts
  • 6 lbs of salt pork
  • 31 lbs of lard

Mmmmm… porky goodness. I can hear you salivating already. But if 200 lbs is good then 400 lbs must be better right? Well, not really. Once a pig reaches approximately 225lbs, they start “making pigs of themselves” by eating more food and putting on less weight. Plus they start to get fatty, and since you are going to the trouble of growing yourself some healthy bacon, you might as well do it right.

Tips on buying your piglet:piglet The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

  • Purchase your baby pig in the spring when it is about 6 – 8 weeks old.
  • Get your piglet inoculated and wormed before purchase. (You may need to continue to de-worm your pig every 4 – 6 wks.)
  • Buy your pig from a reputable breeder or a farmer with clean, disease-free stock.
  • Do NOT buy a cute, little runt.
  • Choose a long pig – fat pigs produce lots of fat (there’s a big surprise).
  • Pick a young sow or a castrated male pig (a barrow).
  • The breed doesn’t matter – all breeds have been developed to produce yummy, meaty deliciousness.

How to feed your pig:

  • Your pig is not a picky eater. It will be happy eating grain, wheat, grass, corn-on-the-cob, table scraps, leftover garden veggies and even garbage. But, do NOT feed old garbage to your pig, pigs like fresh garbage.
  • Pigs reared on fresh greens and plenty of exercise will produce lean, healthy and, (most importantly) juicy pork. Your pig should gain about 1 pound/ day.
  • You can use a trough for your pig’s food. However, make sure that you secure the trough so your pig does not tip it over.
  • Observe your pig’s eating habits so that you can make sure your pig is getting enough food and still keep waste to a minimum.
  • Use a wall-mounted water bucket. This will keep your pigs dirty hooves out of the water and reduce spillage. A growing pig can guzzle 3 gallons of water a day so make sure your pig has a fresh supply at all times.

Your pig is a simple creature and only needs a simple house. But make sure it’s sturdy because pigs like to push and prod and could knock their home down. (And don’t forget about the big, bad wolf, his huffing and puffing is sure to knock down any shoddily built house.)

All your pig needs is a 3-sided shed, approximately 8 x 6 feet, 5 feet high in front, 3 feet high in the rear, with a tar-paper roof. Leave the front open (to let the smell out) and build it in a shaded area to keep your piggy cool in the summer.

Pigs love to roam and forage and keep their snout to the ground. They are also known to be expert escape artists. This means that any fence will need to be well-constructed at ground level to keep your sneaky pig in otherwise your neighbor may be the one dining on free-range pork.

Once your pig is big enough to eat, it is probably easiest to get a professional to slaughter your pig for you. Your feed dealer will know someone who can dress your pigs, smoke the hams, bacon, make sausage, hog’s head cheese, liverwurst, mmmm…. Or if you are feeling adventurous you can do your own curing and smoking once the pig has been slaughtered and dressed. (Refer back to Makin’ Bacon)

It is also an option to slaughter your own pig but make sure to do it when the weather is cool. You don’t want the pig to freeze so 40 – 50 degrees is the perfect temperature for pig killing. Then hang the carcass for at least 24 hours to ensure all of the pig’s body heat has dissipated.

The final thing to remember is that your pig is not your pet; you are raising it for food. Pigs can be fun and entertaining but don’t get too attached to it or you’ll never be able to enjoy the fresh bacon that you worked so hard to raise.

Cookin’ Bacon

frying-bacon The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Most people prefer to cook bacon in a cast iron skillet (or at least a frying pan) on low heat. But people have also been known to bake bacon, grill bacon and microwave bacon. And since there are so many ways to cook bacon, guess what? There are also all kinds of special bacon-cooking equipment available for your bacon-cooking needs.

Frying Pan

The 2 most important things to remember when cooking bacon in a frying pan are to use a cold skillet and to keep the temperature on low to medium while cooking. Starting with a cold skillet will keep the bacon curling to a minimum and the low temperature will prevent burning, both of which are pretty important when you are trying to show off your bacon prowess. Here’s some tips on how to keep your bacon from shrinking when cooking it in the frying pan.

bacon-press The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Of course there are some gadgets to help out when you need that extra flat bacon like the Bacon Press.

This pig-shaped cast-iron press flattens your bacon strips for fast, even cooking with minimal shrinkage. Fits most 10″ skillets. Can also be used on an open grill.

Grill

Grilling your bacon doesn’t take any special skill. Simply preheat your grill. Place your slab o’ bacon on the grill (you don’t even have to separate the slices), grill for 3 - 4 minutes then open the grill and turn the bacon. Close the grill and continue cooking until desired bacon-y crispness.

bacon-grill The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Oven

Bacon is yummy when baked in the oven and the oven produces flat slices (perfect for bacon-o-licious BLTs).

To bake your bacon:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place a rack inside a baking sheet.
  • Lay out your bacon-y slices of goodness and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on desired doneness.
  • You can also use a broiler, but the splatters make a huge mess and can also cause fires!

However, if you are a risk taker and would prefer to use a broiler, watch Rachel Ray and she’ll tell you how.

Microwave

Some people actually prefer their bacon cooked in the microwave. (I’m not sure who these people are but apparently they have reasons). The #1 reason for cooking bacon in the microwave is that it cooks the bacon with out making a huge, greasy mess and still produces nice crispy strips. People also say that their bacon is healthier this way, but come on, it’s bacon…

There are several fancy contraptions to help you cook your bacon in the microwave but as long as you have a glass dish and some paper towel you are ready to get cooking.

Follow these simple steps from StartCooking.com to make perfect microwave bacon every time.

Lay 2 paper towels on the plate. Spread the bacon out in a single layer not overlapping on the dish.

microwave-bacon-step1 The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Now lay another paper towel over the top.

microwave-bacon-step2 The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Depending on your microwave, this amount of bacon should take about 4-6 minutes to get nice and crispy.

microwave-bacon-step3 The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Using pot holders, very carefully remove the dish from the microwave.

microwave-bacon-step4 The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

Be careful! The dish itself will be very hot.

The paper towels will have absorbed all the bacon fat. With some tongs, put the bacon on a serving dish.

Now just throw away the paper towels and enjoy.

While there are many wonderful ways to enjoy bacon in your life the best, nay, only way to truly experience this delectable and succulent, smoked meat is to simply eat it.

And not just by sprinkling some bacon bits on your salad, but by excessively adding bacon on top of more bacon to every mouth-watering spoonful that touches your unworthy mouth.

For those who are truly passionate about bacon and wish to incorporate its savory goodness into their daily lives as much as possible, here are some ‘must-reads’ in bacon literature.

Baconism

Back To Top

Bacontarians the world over have united under one common passion: to promote the consumption and unfaltering love for the most blessed of foods, bacon. And so, on this, the holiest of days, The Holy Church of Bacon was born.

The Holy Church of Bacon doth not judge nor discriminate. Anyone who doth seekith the bacon-y truth may join in this, the Holy Quest of Baconage. The Holy Book of Bacon, or the Bacon Bible, is the holiest of bacon texts and serves as a personal guide to Baconlightenment (Baconirvana). This sacred scripture includes the most important works in Baconic history:

To practice Baconism, one must worship and revere this blessed food as the way, the truth, and the life.

Bacontarians must also recite the Pig Prayer:

Bacon Boy SuperHero

Austin Winters created Bacon Boy at the age of 10 while he was being treated for leukemia in Portland’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. He was inspired by painter Frank Etxaniz who encouraged him to come up with a character to draw.

austin-and-bacon-boy The Baconcyclopedia: The Ultimate Bacon Reference of Baconic Proportions

What started as a simple drawing, morphed into a superhero of Baconic proportions. Bacon Boy was born, along with his friend Sgt Sausage, who together fought off the evil Fry Guy and his minions, Knife and Fork. Fry Guy’s main goal is to cook his enemies but he hasn’t gotten Bacon Boy yet.

Bacon Boy has a hat, cape and multiple delicious superpowers to fight his enemies.

SuperPowers:

  • Being able to shoot bacon bits from one hand and grease from the other.
  • “Meat Vision” that lets Bacon Boy propel sausages and corn dogs out of his eye sockets.
  • Powerful suction to upload various things, such as, water and grease.

Bacon Boy

Bacon Boy was entered into a children’s art contest and after winning, became transformed into a glass version for a permanent collection of kids’ art in the Tacoma Museum of Glass.

Austin made drawings of his characters, created iron-on images, t-shirts, did animation and shaped Bacon Boy in clay.

Austin lost his battle with cancer on September 18, 2008. Buying one of Bacon Boy’s t-shirts will support the Austin Winters Fund and the Children’s Healing Art Project.

If there’s Bacon Boy, then there must be Bacon Man!

Bacon Grease Biofuel

You can make biodiesel out of any triglycerides(fats and vegetable oils) If you eat bacon, save the grease in a jar. After you get a jar or two full, take one out of the fridge and put it in a pan of hot water to melt it.

The water and solids will go to the bottom. Pour off about 500ml of the bacon grease, titrate, heat, and mix with the methoxide as you would with veg oil. I tried this about a year ago and the oil titrated at 3.25 and made the prettiest light yellow biodiesel you ever saw.

And it doesn’t go back solid at room temp like bacon grease would. Biodiesel out of 100% pig fat.

Is there anything bacon can’t do?

The End of Bacon

Battle Of The Bots : Ziggy Vs. The Washer

March 27, 2009 by Natalie  

We’ve talked about some fun and creative ways to ”recycle” your old appliances, redneck-style. A few grenades, an open field and a couple of beers is an entertaining way to dispose of your old fridge.

But there’s another unique way to get rid of your old appliances that’s equally destructive and equally fun. If you’ve got a knack for killer robots, you could try your hand at building your own Ziggy and declaring an all-out, carnage-filled war on your home appliances like this guy did at Battle Beach 4.

Conceptual Housing Gone Minimalist

March 24, 2009 by Gwen  

Schemata Architecture has designed a conceptual model home that is a 3×3x3 cube called Paco. This cube was designed to provide the minimal equipment needed to have a certain standard of living and you will see from the photos that it is very minimalistic. Things are so minimalistic in fact, they are bordering on claustrophobic.

roof-open Conceptual Housing Gone Minimalist
There is a sink, a toilet under the floor (which converts into a shower), a removable table for dining and there is even a small “guest” room should you have friends in for a sleep-over.

Now I know that I live in a society of consumers and that we have so much, but, I could never live in this little, white box. I understand the concept of the minimalist approach; I even think that most of us could stand to down-size our lives. However, if I was forced to live in this cube, I would turn into a raging looney before the week’s end.

The two redeeming features of Paco are that the roof opens up (thank God) and the cube can be installed anywhere that has hookup for water and waste removal. I think the perfect use for Paco would be a great little changing room on the beach – it looks ideal there.

The Redneck Guide To Recycling Appliances

March 16, 2009 by David  

After your old, broken-down appliance has cooled its last beer or washed its last nacho plate, there are several ways to get rid of it.

  • There’s the lazy way - just dump it on the curb in front of your house and hope the garbage man takes it away.
  • The green way - have your appliance properly recycled or get creative and use the parts to build something new.
  • And then there’s the Redneck way - grab a grenade, a couple of brewskies and duck for cover.

Since the Redneck way produces better videos, check out these 4 explosive methods of disposal.

4.) Watch your tax dollars in action.

Killers and Chillers

March 12, 2009 by David  

Freezers and refrigerators are tools of the trade for cannibals and murderers. As a matter of fact, according to Wikiality, freezers are the appliance of choice for serial killers everywhere.

corpse-freezer Killers and Chillers

What better way is there to keep body parts fresh, tasty and readily available for a late-night snack then to tuck them into a crisper bin in the fridge? The tightly sealed fridge and freezer doors keep a lid on any two-week-old-dead-body funk that could spoil a disgusting and perverse secret.

Actually, these 9 notorious and dangerous killers should have gotten a lock for their fridge or freezer when they used these chilling household appliances to store dismembered body parts right next to the rocky road ice cream.

1. Jeffrey Dahmer

Born: May 21, 1960
Number of Killings: 17
Favorite body parts to keep in the fridge: head and torso

jeffrey-dahmer

The most infamous antagonist of ice box storage is Jeffrey “Milwaukee Cannibal” Dahmer, who was arrested after a near-victim fled the crime scene. The victim luckily escaped what 17 boys and men hadn’t — police found multiple human torsos and heads in Dahmer’s fridge and a heart in his freezer.

Fortunately, Dahmer is no longer a tax burden as he was beaten to death on November 28, 1994, by a fellow inmate with a bar from a weight machine.

2. Ed Gein

Born: 1906
Number of Killings: 2 or more
Favorite body part to keep in the fridge: internal organs

ed-gein Killers and Chillers

Ed Gein, the Wisconsin native, whose violent lifestyle inspired the slasher classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, lived in a rural town where neighbors described him as “quiet”. Ed owned and operated a small grocery, enjoyed babysitting for neighbors, and obsessed over creating household furniture out of his victims. Ed’s hobbies also included grave-robbing, wearing women’s clothing and flesh and keeping a refrigerator full of human organs.

Gein was found guilty of first degree murder but because he was also found to be legally insane, he spent the rest of his life in a mental hospital where he died in 1984.

3. Özgür Dengiz

Born: 1980
Number of Killings: 3
Favorite body parts to keep in the fridge: flesh from buttocks and thighs

ozgur-dengiz2 Killers and Chillers

The youngest maniac to send a victim to an icy grave was Özgür Dengiz of Turkey. At 17 years of age, he was jailed for the murder of a friend. After serving three years, he was released on parole and soon after shot Cafer Er, a 55-year-old garbage collector who was “crowding the area”. Dengiz disposed of the corpse at the local dump but only after he had removed portions of the dead man’s body. He took these portions home, shared some with the neighborhood dogs and stored the rest in his family’s kitchen freezer.

Denzig was captured in 2007 and showed no remorse for his crimes. As a matter of fact, he said he would have kept killing if he had not been caught.

4. Armin Meiwes

Born: 1961
Number of Killings: 1
Favorite body part to keep in the fridge: cut up flesh

armmin-meiwes1-300x171 Killers and Chillers

In 2001, Armin Meiwes (of Germany) took out an online ad looking for a volunteer to be killed and eaten. Burnd Brandes answered the ad and on Christmas day of the same year, was killed and stored in Meiwes’ freezer for the next ten months.

Meiwes was not arrested until the following year, when he put out an advertisement for his next victim. In 2004, Meiwes was sentenced to 8 ½ years in prison for manslaughter but a re-trial found him guilty of murder and his sentence was changed to life in prison.

5. Nikolai Dzhumagaliev

Born: 1952
Number of Killings: unknown, but some sources indicate 50 – 100 victims
Favorite body parts to keep in the fridge: head and intestines

nikolai-dzhumagaliev-248x300 Killers and Chillers

Nikolai “Metal Fang” Dzhumagaliev of Russia is the most likable character on the bad boys roster. He was a social person and invited friends for snacks during one of many get-togethers at his house. His friends turned him in though, when they discovered his “snacks” consisted of a human head and intestinal tract that he kept cooling in the fridge.

In 2007, he was found guilty of seven murders but is believed to be responsible for 50-100 deaths. He has since been released from a mental institution and is a free man living in Eastern Europe.

6. Anthony Hopkins

Born: 1971
Number of Killings: 1
Favorite body part to keep in the freezer: whole corpse

anthonyhopkins Killers and Chillers

Even more recently, a travelling preacher named Anthony Hopkins (just like the actor who portrayed famous cinematic cannibals Hannibal Lecter and Titus Andronicus) killed his wife and buried her behind their family home in Mobile, Alabama. Sources speculate that his wife, Aretha, came home to find Hopkins sexually abusing their children and her murder took place shortly thereafter. Perhaps dissatisfied with his choice of burial, he exhumed her body and placed it in the family freezer before being caught by the authorities this past August.

7. Paul Dalton

Born: 1970
Number of Killings: 1
Favorite body part to keep in the freezer: chopped up corpse

pauldalton Killers and Chillers

Paul Dalton was found guilty of manslaughter after unintentionally killing his wife. The unhappy couple had been fighting when Mr. Dalton was “blinded by rage” - a rage that resulted in fatal violence. Realizing what had transpired, he bought a couple of saws and dustsheets before chopping up her body and storing it in their fridge-freezer.

Dalton’s wife’s remains were discovered by his parents after he fled to Japan.

8. Jeremy Hauck

Born: 1988
Number of Killings: 1
Favorite body part to keep in the freezer: whole corpse

jeremy-hauck-300x225 Killers and Chillers

Jeremy Hauck was found guilty of shooting his mother and stuffing her body in the freezer of her Bountiful, Utah condominium. Police found her body after family members hadn’t heard from her for several days. The police reported that “she was frozen solid” and it took 3 days for her body to thaw.

In January 2008, Hauck, was found not competent to stand trial.

9. Issei Sagawa

Born: 1949
Number of Killings: 1
Favorite body part to keep in the fridge: cut up flesh

sagawa-300x235 Killers and Chillers

Renée Hartevelt was the girl of Sagawa’s dreams. They were classmates in a university in France and after befriending Hartevelt, Sagawa invited Hartevelt to his apartment where he shot her in the neck with a rifle. After 2 days, Sagawa was seen dumping most of the mutilated body in a park. The rest of Renée Hartevelt was still in Sagawa’s refrigerator when the police came to arrest him.

Sagawa was found legally insane and deported back to Japan, where he was put in a mental institution. However, as a result of mishandled paperwork, Sagawa was able to check himself out of the mental institution after 15 months and has been a free man ever since.
