Stargazy Sushi

Telescope made out of seaweed and fish eyes

I am of course veggie, which makes me bad for posting this.

Stargazy pie is a pie made with fish heads looking up out of the crust. It does not appeal. However, the lenses of fish eyes are clearly lenses and work well as a way of focussing an image, and since fish heads are edible, so presumably are fish eyes.

So: Make a tube of laver, support it with rice starch and place a fish eye at either end, having cored out the retina. Given the correct focal length, you will then have sushi which can be used as a telescope, or in pairs as field glasses.

       But can you sneak it in to see a movie?   

       You Brits have a knack for creating the most god-awful food creations this side of heaven.   

       When are you going to learn to simply make it all out of industrial chemicals like we do in the States?

       Eat it up, yum.

       One of these days, I'll get around to cooking a stargazey pie with a single rat's snout in the very centre.

       Have you heard of "lutefisk", which translates into English approximately as "soap"?

       Lutefisk (Norwegian) or lutfisk (Swedish) is a traditional dish of some Nordic countries. Lye fish is a god awful concoction. It would not make a telescope.

       It sounds like you might be able to use it to polish the lenses though.

       //When are you going to learn to simply make it all out of industrial chemicals like we do in the States?// That's very unfair on American food. They actually pass the industrial chemicals through livestock and plants before feeding them to people.   

       Interestingly*, van Leeuwenhoek's first microscopes had a single powerful lens taken from cod.
