Um, I think it may be illegal in some countries to give your child a name like Controversial Science Fair Project.

Good point, anon, but immediate reactions aren't always the most grammar-true. It's what the eyes are drawn to and in this case, it was quotation marks in the overall context of the title. But I sit - not for too long, it is erev Shabbos - corrected.

Have you been helped by the internet?
How can I be helped by the internet when I spend all my time online playing games, watching p*rn, and talking to computer-generated bots instead of real live people? Someday soon my personality will entirely disappear and be replaced by ones and zeros. _________________ "Don't turn your back. Don't look around. And don't blink. Good luck." -The Doctor

In search of baking 'supplies' in Lakewood
(With my most sincere apologies to the OP of the thread but it's hard to resist this one) Is supplies a code word for something? Do you plan to make 'special' 'brownies' or something?
But then wouldn't the title be "In search of 'baking' supplies"?
I disagree. You are actually baking those brownies, just with interesting ingredients, hence 'supplies'. If you were making, say, a no-bake, cheesecake, you might say, "HI have to go 'bake' my cheesecake now." (Although why wouldn't you say, 'mix' or something more accurate?
Or, you might say, "I wanted to 'bake' in the sun on my deck, but my dermatologist has forbidden it.", you see, where you are using the word 'bake' in a metaphoric or non-literal sense.
Okay, off to bake or possibly 'bake' a non-dairy 'cheese'-cake
