Saucy link to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about the hidden dangers of non-stick pans. Apparently if you heat them too much they'll kill your parrot. Really. It's something called Teflon toxicosis.

The fun bit, though, is this:

I think I've got me a science experiment for the weekend...
