TRIVIA
agar (agar-agar)
Also called Japanese Isinglass, Bengal isinglass, and Japanese moss.
This additive is used as a texturizing agent, emulsifier, stabilizing agent
and thickener in ice cream, sherbets, jellies, soups, sauces, canned soups,
and canned meat & fish. It is used as a clarifying agent in wine-making
and brewing, to fill the pores in cloth and paper manufacturing ('sizing'),
as a medium for growing bacteria; in dentistry and cosmetics; film and
adhesives. It is prepared from several species of red algae (or seaweed).
It is a vegetable gelatin, and is therefore used by vegetarians because true
gelatin is made from calf's feet.

QUOTE
"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what
the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is
another theory which states that this has already happened."
