Sometimes, knowing it happens isn't enough. You see the start, you taste the end - but you need to see what happens in between.
This is a time-lapse of some camembert slowly warming to room temperature over a touch more than three hours. It was recorded using Gawker taking a frame every six seconds - meaning one hour in real time takes 20 seconds in the video.
If the cheese isn't interesting enough, note the reflection of passing clouds in the plate towards the beginning, or the small bug who flies in for a look (and maybe a taste) about two-thirds of the way through.
