It’s Draw A Bird Day, so MNN took a quick break to…well, draw some birds.
And once you read the story behind this unofficial holiday, you’ll want to draw a bird too.
We may be buried beneath a few inches (or feet) of snow, but MNN’s editors, writers and bloggers are managing to stay warm — and caffeinated!
It’s that time of year where candy appears in the office, and here at MNN, we found ourselves ready to take on a challenge we haven’t faced since we were children: The Atomic Fireball Challenge. Only a handful of us were able to tolerate the delicious cinnamon burn.
What makes Atomic Fireballs so hot? We’ve got the answer here, as well as the science behind some other classic candies, including Warheads, Pop Rocks and Wint-O-Green Life Savers.

Chuck has performed and recorded with many of the world’s most prominent musicians, including George Harrison, Eric Clapton and John Mayer. In addition to his musical career, Chuck is one of the nation’s most respected voices for land conservation and the environment. In 1999, Chuck and his wife were named National Tree Farmers of the Year.
Check out the Joy of Living Less’ New Home Ec Challenge, where you’ll learn how to make everything from candles to cleaning products.
