julia child cooks primordial soup

i'm speechless... she uses a big old knife to point with, and later she uses a mixing spoon! haha!

"Julia Child cooks up a batch of primordial soup and explains how these simple ingredients produce amino acids - the building blocks of life. This video played in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's Life in The Universe gallery from 1976 until the gallery closed."

Any chance that Heinz will be selling this soup in a can?

So, if I understand this correctly, that means Julia Child is the mother of all life on Earth, and the Intelligent Design folks are right after all. Put this in the textbooks and "teach the controversy"!

P.S. Nice recipe, but it needs a pinch of rosemary and a dash of oregano. I'll take fries with that!

It looks like Julia might have to alter her recipe...

Perhaps Meryl Streep can make the revised video?
