    First functional structure made entirely of chocolate on its way

    Engineers conceive of chocolaty construction project. (mnn.com)
    A delectable design aimed at using innovative materials in architecture has led to what might be a cocoa lover's wildest dream: a pavilion made entirely out of chocolate.

    Engineers at Princeton University have teamed up with the Belgian chocolate company Barry Callebaut the world's largest chocolate manufacturer to construct what would be the first functional structure made completely of chocolate.

    The project stems from the engineers' research in form-finding architecture, which seeks to optimize structural durability using innovative shapes and materials.

    Hey Nestle look at this! And they didn't even ask for water rights!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    That is just a waste of chocolate. Chocolate is made to eat.
