Just a silly pie chart I created for “Designing conference posters” to argue that graphs with illustrations can help viewers absorb results a bit faster than those with just labels and legends. (Please note that although the graphic is a tad silly, the data are real: less than 10% of Americans accept that humans evolved without supernatural help.)

I finally buckled to peer pressure and boiled a can of sweetened condensed milk. For 3 1/2 hours. It didn’t explode, and contents (dulce de leche) supported the weight of a spoon. In fact, substance was so solid that I could easily pick up the can with the spoon and swing it around (nobody was looking). You can do anything with the product, of course — eat it plain, spread it on toast, use as dip for apples, etc. Per recommendations online, I decided to mix it with sliced bananas and pour into a pre-baked pie shell. Pure heaven. I used Longevity Brand sweetened condensed milk because of the name and label art, both of which suggest the contents are healthy and that I will live a long time if I consume it regularly. I normally add it to espresso shots when I need a sugar and caffeine jolt, but I’d heard about the boiled can trick for years and thought I’d give it a try. You should, too.
