* Here's why I'm inclined to ignore most medical science when it comes to nutrition. They change their minds every few years! Depending on which study you reference, eggs are good or bad for you, coffee is good or bad for you, certain fats are good or bad for you. Fish is healthy, but not too much. You need omega-3 but now it's linked to problems. Just the other day, the British medical establishment announced that pregnant women can consume one alcoholic drink per day safely. The Canadian medical establishment on the same day (taking issue with the British announcement) announced that there is NO safe consumption level of alcohol during pregnancy.
* On a related note, there is an inherent flaw in the medical establishment issuing guidelines for EVERYONE. This would be sound practice if we were all identical copies of one another. But we aren't.
* Personally, I think genes have more power over your fate than personal habits. I acknowledge that I could be wrong.
* Speaking of fate, I figure the big events are already decided. I think of life as a coloring book. The outline is there. There are fixed boundaries and yet our free will let's us color in the drawing with whatever hue we'd like. You can't color outside the lines.
* I find Starbucks coffee to be too bitter and too caffeinated. They make the best iced coffee though.
* I love my mom. (Doesn't everybody?) She sent me this vid cause she knew I'd like it.
* By far the most popular post on this blog is, "How to make perfect french fries."
* I'd rather have people convicted of identity theft treated far more harshly than those convicted of drug dealing. Sometimes I just have to shake my head at our society's priorities.
* One of the signs of maturity is the ability to freely admit it when you're wrong. Sadly, some people never grow up.
* Great line from the Phantom Tollbooth uttered by the noise doctor: "Why, I'm kept so busy I can hardly fill the orders for noise pills, racket lotion, clamor salve, and hubbub tonic." Clamor salve. What a great name for a band.
