If there’s one place in California that could be considered the Mecca of innovation and cutting-edge entrepreneurship, Silicon Valley would be the leading candidate.

Man Buys Meat From Farmers’ Market in China — Discovers That It Glows In The Dark

One man’s shocking pork discovery will not be helping the poor reputation of meat from China.

A man, surnamed Jian, from Leshan, China, found that pork he had purchased at a farmers’ market glowed blue while in the dark, reports the People’s Daily Online (via Daily Mail).

He had purchased 92 pounds of pork for around 600 yuan ($91) to make sausages.

After cutting up the meat and adding kimchi salt to it, Jian placed it in a bucket to marinate overnight on Jan. 4.

When he woke up the next morning at 5 a.m. to get a cup of water, however, he found that there was a blue glow emanating from the bucket.

“In darkness, the bucket of pork looked like fireflies,” he said.

Food and drug administration officials who tested the meat said the the blue light may have been caused by high levels of phosphorus in the pigs’ diet. According to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, although phosphorus is a “vital nutrient for pig growth,” they do “ not always digest it well.”

This isn’t the first time meat purchased by a Chinese consumer made unusual headlines. In June of last year, a woman from Shandong Province found the raw steak she had purchased twitching after she brought it home from the butcher.

Glow in the Dark Ice Cream Costs $225 Per Scoop

1383144483_20131030144803_42475796752711c2398f6b1_44622739_1587016177_7798155153_l

Ice cream rules, even when there’s something offbeat or unusual about it (see: Facebook-flavored and spaghetti ice cream). Our latest find gives even the strangest of varieties a run for their money, because this ice cream glows in the dark.

Food inventor Charlie Harry Francis of Lick Me I’m Delicious came up with this never-before-seen creation that is, in fact, edible. So what’s the secret behind the glow? It’s caused by “calcium activated proteins that react when they are agitated,” AKA the stuff that makes jellyfish glow. Basically, if you lick the ice cream, it starts to radiate light!

Unfortunately, the ice cream would set you back $225 per scoop, because apparently jellyfish glow is expensive. Francis achieved the same result another way though, using “quinine from tonic to make a glow in the UV dark gin and tonic sorbet,” which we can only assume is a bit more affordable.
