Some chef thinks that Radiohead’s most-outre album is worthy of a meal all its own:
Finally, we have the answer to a burning question for Radiohead fans: What should I eat while listening to “Kid A”?
Next week, a Detroit chef and sommelier will offer a 10-course tasting menu for one night only. Each course pairs with a track from the 2000 Radiohead album, which will play uninterrupted throughout the meal.
Yeah yeah whatever, when are chefs going to hook up us Smash Mouth fans?

Food is so personal and subjective that we’re always talking about it in vague and imprecise ways. But one of the many amazing things you can with big-ish data is give precise questions to answers that always seemed so subjective. Take, for instance, the question of bacon. Everything is always better with bacon, right? But if so, how much? And are any foods actually worse with bacon?
We calculated the answer, following a simple methodology that made the most of the 906,539 ratings on foodnetwork.com. First, we searched out all the recipes that fit a certain description-—sandwiches, for example. Then, we calculated the average rating for those foods if they did not include the word “bacon.” We ran the numbers again using only recipes that did include bacon. The results were pretty great.
Finally, the irrefutable proof that we were all waiting for.
