Today at Flavorpill, wondered how many pounds you would gain if you ate an entire bacon tree by yourself. We started counting down the days until Mad Men returns next year thanks to these new photos of Jon Hamm on set. We were slightly afraid of a few of these world record setters — particularly the person behind “fastest time to eat a light bulb.” We found out what it’s really like to be James Franco’s professor. We were amazed by this 100-year-old letter to Santa that was recently discovered in a chimney in Dublin. We read a hilarious new holiday-themed essay by Sloane Crosley entitled “How to Start Your Candy-Cane Collection in 23 Easy Steps.” We decided that we’d like to meet the crazed Trekkies who live in this house — as long as there was a chaperone present. We looked forward to hearing 32 more chapters of R. Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet. We downloaded a new alarm clock app that features fake wake-up calls from Jimmy Fallon. And finally, we were surprised to see how beautiful photos of volcanic activity can be. Prepared to be amazed!
