In a very fitting submission for San Francisco's Stupid Shit No One Needs And Terrible Ideas Hackathon (yes, that is actually what the event is called), tinkerer Jonathan Marcus of Massachusetts made groundbreaking strides in the field of deep frying, becoming perhaps the first person ever to deep fry water. Vice's food-focused offshoot, Munchies, reported on the culinary monstrosity's process, which Marcus brilliantly realized the key to is putting the water in some sort of contained membrane. It has been documented and uploaded to YouTube for the world to see this Panko-crusted piece of history in the making.
