End result:

Otherwise known as green onion pancakes or scallion pancakes... Used 3 cups of flour, 1 cup of hot water, sesame oil, green onions, salt... made about 5 pancakes.

They're supposed to be slightly crispier and flakier than my end result. Also, should have been slightly saltier, I think. Still, not too bad.

Also, this is interesting:

Essentially, if you use a combination of 1 (one), I (upper case i), l (lower case L), you could theoretically make it kinda hard to positively identify your car by license plate. Similarily, 0 (zero) and O (upper case o) would do the same. It's a little harder, but 2 and Z may also do the same.
