Have you heard of this phenomenon of getting RickRoll’D?

Here’s the play: you get a link to a video saying it’s something or the other, cute puppies, or your brother falling off the roof or something equally funny. It might come in an email or an online forum or blog comments or whatever. But instead of being a video of what was advertised, you get this, and now you’ve got that song stuck in your head all day.

Not very nice. But kind of funny if you’re on the right end of it.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

-Michael Pollan

This guy is a fantastic journalist. He has a remarkable ability to take ridiculous technical information and boil it down to basic advice. I think the advice to shop around the outside of the grocery store (because all of the more processed and less nutritional foods are in the aisles, while the fresh produce and meats tend to be at the perimeter) can be sourced to him. If you haven’t read The Omnivore’s Dilemma, you should.

I like.
