My week on Soylent: ‘I was irritable, grumpy and a general pain in the arse’. Soylent’s creator claims that the powder can replace food. But what is it like to live on it for a week? Adam Gabbatt found out - video

The product is out, and the reviews are not good. Also see the New York Times, The Soylent Revolution Will Not Be Pleasurable:

the most joyless new technology to hit the world since we first laid eyes on MS-DOS.

All of these weeds are edible… and delicious.

I’d love to forage for food except I’m scared of picking something poisonous and killing myself.

If wine and food pairings are so important, why do restaurants ask what you want to drink before you’ve looked at the menu?

So, uh, this exists. Powdered alcohol. Just add water. Or snort, if that’s your thing. Wow.

People lined up around the corner to buy ham. Is this a thing? I mean, I know that ham and Christmas is kind of like turkey and Thanksgiving, but is it common for people to line up on Christmas Eve for it? Or are these just your average late shoppers? Oh, also—are stores like this open only for the holiday season or are they open all year?

(Yeah, I know, taking a picture of the rearview mirror while a semi truck is coming towards you isn’t the smartest idea. Let’s just say that I didn’t win any Nobel prizes this year, okay?)

I don’t know how old this post is but this is normal for my job (HoneyBaked). I’m not sure why people try to buy hams the day before a holiday but they do. Also, we’re open year round, we have sandwiches. ^_^

Two years later, my questions are answered. So buying ham one day before a holiday is a thing. And the stores are open year-round. Who knew? (Except for HoneyBaked Ham employees, that is.)
