A waffle cone piled high with creamy ice cream. A sizzling hot dog fresh off the grill. A tall, cool glass of water buffalo milk. OK, maybe that last one hasn't gotten much play in our lifetimes—but in the centuries before refrigeration came about, anyone baking in the summer sun had to get creative. While many historic summertime treats have stuck around in one form or another, others, like the ones we've gathered here, have mostly melted away like a dropped Popsicle on a sidewalk in August. Flavored Snow and Ice The snow cones of eras past were a lot more literal than the neon kind we slurp at the carnival these days. In ancient Rome , slaves scoured nearby mountains for blocks of ice which were then crushed and topped with spiced syrups and fruit for their masters. Mesopotamian nobles , too, had icehouses built along the banks of the Euphrates River to beat the heat. Snow was even sold in the streets of ancient Athens, likely to cool wine. Flavored ices have remained popular around the world Thomas Jefferson was known to serve freezes at Monticello , even as they've largely moved away from the straight-up snow-based variety.

It's not that what he is saying is not interesting, but after you've heard it for the tenth time it loses its novelty. Perhaps the most interesting thing is the way Tyson is so obviously pulled in two directions. On the one hand he appreciates how superior unmanned satellites and explorers are from a bang-per-buck science viewpoint. On the other hand he believes manned missions are essential to raise interest levels. But the thing that made me give up was the sheer jingoism of the book.

If you aren't an American, I can guarantee this book will irritate you. Here's one example, the words of an interviewer speaking to Tyson who Tyson doesn't argue with : 'If we land on Mars, how are we going to know if USA is number one if an American astronaut is standing next to a French guy? Are we going to say, "Go Earth!

No, we're going to say, "Go USA! An even better example, as it is purely Tyson's own remarks is when he is talking about the aerospace industry, bemoaning the loss of US control.

He says 'In the fifties, sixties, seventies, part of the eighties, every plane that landed in your city was made in America. I worked for an airline in the s, and I can tell you this is total baloney which is apparently American for bilge. Remind me, for example, who built the Comet, the first jet airliner.
