Link roundup

1. Apparently sports reporter Armand Keteyian is short.

2. I'd never heard that members of the US Congress are not subject to SEC oversight, and thus can play the stock market without fear of insider trading charges.

3. A claim that In-N-Out's secret to making delicious hamburgers is to slather one side with dijon mustard before cooking. Via. UPDATE: Per the comments, it's only the Animal-style burgers cooked that way,

  1. I worked at In-N-Out (over ten years ago, but change is not a significant priority for them). The "Animal Style" is when they cook the burger in mustard. (This is in addition to adding extra sauce and pickles, and using grilled onions.)

    The regular burgers are just cooked on the grill like anything else. There's not much secret about it - just good meat and careful cooking. (Managers are supposed do the cooking, because they want the most experienced people doing the most important thing - making the burgers.) Usually you can maneuver your way around to the end of the counter or something and actually watch them cooking the burgers.
