My ask box is full and I have over a 100 new followers.
Many, many people are pissed at me.

The info is from the Omnivore’s Dilemma, which is a book. I’m not looking up the page numbers for you, you lazy fucks.
I know everyone always talks about how they LOVE READING AND BOOKS on Tumblr, but maybe you should stop saying it, put down the tv remote, and actually read Omnivore’s Dilemma.
Now, blow me.
I really like Michael “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants” Pollan. And I like this guy, too.
There was some letter I wrote you about how I was really craving a good science book to read. Nothing interesting had come my way for a while, besides listening to Science Friday. I’ve read most of the major Michael Pollan-s and Mary Roach-s. I thought about revisiting The Family That Couldn’t Sleep, but then when I went to hunt that down at the library, I came across The Best American Science Writing series. I read the 2010 book and then the 2008 book, which was the next one I could find on the shelf that I didn’t have to put in a special request for from another library branch or otherwise wait around for.
I don’t know why I love this kind of stuff. I guess I am questioning why I love reading that stuff because a part of me wants to do something beyond a sole (and selfish) purpose of infotainment. For example, when I first read The Omnivore’s Dilemma, I really wanted to go foraging for wild mushrooms like Michael Pollan did in the book. It seemed like something cool to learn.
Well, that was in 2007. And you have to get up at the asscrack of dawn to go mushroom hunting.
