Let's first talk CRACKERINO recipes! We love seeing your cracker snack recipes and here are some of our favorites — have different ones you want to share? Let us know in the forum!

“Water crackers with a small slice of brie and either jalapeño pepper jelly or home made cranberry sauce. YAS” — Instagram @callistocallie

“Triscuits/sharp cheddar/pickles. I’ve had this for dinner more than once. Recently.” — Instagram @motherofdragons79

"Triscuits with burrata and Trader Joe’s sweet and hot jalapeños" Instagram @taliapaloma

"Cracker snack: ritz, peanut butter, small slice of Granny Smith apple (a dinner staple for my mom when my dad was out of town)" — Twitter @breanimals

"Here's my new favorite snack ever! I don't know if there are Aldi's in California, but they sell an artichoke jalepeno dip, I spread it on thick sliced salami and wrap it up and it is the easiest and most delicious snack. If I'm really feeling crafty I'll add a Ritz everything cracker to the mix." — Email from Kayla

"Best cracker snack = ritz, cheddar, dill pickles (chips). Poor version = saltines, Kraft singles and any pickle available. You’re welcome." Twitter @HallieEden

1. Saltine 2. Smear some creamy peanut butter on it 3. Sliced dill pickle. Do not say gross until you ingest it. It is creamy, sour, salty, crunchy, and sweet. My fave fave hungover snack...which may also be a new subgroup name." — Email from Jordan

"Your choice of cracker, a layer of cream cheese, topped with red pepper jelly. It’ll change your life." — Email from Shara

"I grew up spending my summers in South Carolina with the Danish side of my family and we would always eat peanut butter and horseradish on a Triscuit. This is very specific: Classic Triscuit base, A dollop (sorry but it’s the right word) of creamy PB, Topped with a generous smear of real ass spicy horseradish (not the creamy kind)." — Email from EP

"So, in the latest episode, you called for cracker snack recommendations, and I am here to deliver. Any cracker will do. My favorite is the rosemary Carr's brand. Top with goat cheese, honey, and pistachios. Just do it. YOU'RE WELCOME." — Email from Tonya


"Mount Everest, at 8,848 metres (29,029 ft), is the world's highest mountain and a particularly desirable peak for mountaineers. More than 300 people have died trying to climb it. The last year without known deaths on the mountain was 1977, a year in which only two people reached the summit.

Most deaths have been attributed to avalanches, injury from fall, serac collapse, exposure, frostbite, or health problems related to conditions on the mountain. Not all bodies have been located, so details on those deaths are not available.

The upper reaches of the mountain are in the death zone. The "death zone" is a mountaineering term for altitudes above a certain point – around 8,000 m (26,000 ft), or less than 356 millibars (5.16 psi) of atmospheric pressure – where the oxygen level is not sufficient to sustain human life. Many deaths in high-altitude mountaineering have been caused by the effects of the death zone, either directly (loss of vital functions) or indirectly (unwise decisions made under stress or physical weakening leading to accidents). In the death zone, the human body cannot acclimatize, as it uses oxygen faster than it can be replenished. An extended stay in the zone without supplementary oxygen will result in deterioration of bodily functions, loss of consciousness and, ultimately, death..."

"Paul Michael Stephani (September 8, 1944 – June 12, 1998) was an American serial killer. He was also known as the Weepy-Voiced Killer due to a series of telephone calls he made to police, anonymously reporting his crimes in a remorseful and high-pitched voice. Stephani killed three women in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul area..."
