Having some extra time on their hands during finals week, Rice students Todd Stadler and Chris Gouge launch the T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. Project (Tests With Inorganic Noxious Kakes In Extreme Situations), a tongue-in-cheek website chronicling a number of scientific experiments on Hostess Twinkies. The experiments include drowning a twinkie (solubility test), electrocuting it (resistivity test) and testing its intelligence (Turing test). Rumor has it that a number of the twinkies from the "radiation test" were seen years later in a Godzilla film.
