    Sow's Ear

    Vegans might want to skip out now.

    The saying is "You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear", but I'll place a gentleman's bet that Kodak makes it's gelatin from exactly that. Takers?

    At least during my lifetime, Eastman Kodak has been (and I believe still is) the world's largest purchaser of cow bones. They use them to make gelatin.

    As to porcine bones, I have no idea. What's your point?

    Can you make a silk purse out of a Wratten #51 filter?

    No, you need a #47 and a #58.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    A rather interesting (albeit somewhat disgusting) read.
