Just a reminder, I write a food blog. You should read it?
“We are living in an age that glorifies the single study …It’s a folly perpetuated not just by scientists, but by academic journals, the media, granting agencies—we’re all complicit in this hunger for fast, definitive answers. …Most of these studies will ultimately end up in the dustbin of history, not because of misconduct, but because that’s how the scientific process works. The problem isn’t that many studies fail to replicate. It’s that we believe in them before they’ve been thoroughly vetted.”

"I’ve made much fun of vegetarians over the years and am said, frequently, to “hate” them. This is not true. I am dismissive and (okay) contemptuous of food that is made with ideology or a narrow world view as its first priority. I am made unhappy and even angry when a restaurant that claims to celebrate the vegetable in fact, utterly ignores the seasons, the conditions of ripeness that make vegetables interesting and wonderful in the first place—when such places, with determination and malice aforethought, MURDER vegetable after vegetable, sacrificing carrot after carrot, soybean after soybean to a sludgy, monochromatic, mush.

I didn’t see this conversation between a FOX Sports reporter and San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, but I imagine it went something like this:
Reporter: “Is that real? Or is it some kind of crazy meta joke? Please say it’s real. Please say you’re sincere. Dear God that thing is enormous. Is this like when Brooklyn girls started wearing Long Island grandma glasses for a while? Oh man, Philip, I want this to be real so, so bad. Please don’t be a joke. Please tell me this is real.”
Rivers: “We’re just out there every Sunday, giving it 110%, trying to make plays. This week we came out on top, and we’re looking forward to heading to Denver.”
