A watery grave

Advice to potential cheese makers: leave your product on dry land.

I don't understand. I hope they sealed it from the water. But then, what's the difference? Increased pressure? Reduced exposure to cosmic rays? I wonder if there's a market for cheese that's been sent to age in low earth orbit.

Burying cheese and then losing it sounds like a clever money laundering scheme to me.

I agree... I think it's a publicity stunt. Ah but cheese... I don't get good cheese around here :(

I live a few blocks from "The Cheeseboard". I enjoy going and pretending to be a mega cheese snob. You can litterally go in and say, "I need a soft goat cheese to accompany a spianch and pine nut salad, and a pecornio to go with an orange fennel compote". They'll give you tastes of 2-8 cheeses while you mark remarks like "a little less creamy", "too salty", and "do you something like this but studded with truffles". Of course, I probably give away that I don't really know much with my dumb questions. But it's still a cheap and tasty form of entertainment.

You'd really give yourself away if you walk in and ask for a few slices of American. Or ask if they have any sprayable cheeses.

So, do marble cheese boards keep cheese from sweating even if it's really humid?

There are fjords in Canada?

Why wouldn't there be Canadian fjords? I'd expect that every large country below a certain latitude would have at least a few. They all had plenty of glacial activity...

Canada must have been Slartibartfast's second favourite country. For other locations of fjords, check out wikipedia.
