Carl Sagan's apple pie recipe

Here's an old recipe, tried and true.

(Click for a larger, legible pic on Flickr, or get a printable 4x6 recipe card)

I often bring up Sagan's quote when people say they've "built a PC from scratch" and such. Of course, I don't say it to make a philosophical or cosmological point of any sort, but to be the sort of linguistic jackass you know me as.

That's brilliant. I'm a huge huge fan of Dr. Sagan, and I've always noticed how he often used apples in his analogies and explanations throughout his series Cosmos.

I also loved the little detail in the preparation time: "12-20 billion years." Ha!

To be fair, in Cosmos, Sagan said you must first "invent" the universe, not "create."

Still, I love this. :)
