When you’re a broke college kid, very few things will be as important (or as much of a diet lifesaver) as having eggs in your fridge. Eggs provide a slew of important nutrients, are low calorie, and are also pretty tasty!
If someone told you that you needed to singlehandedly build a castle out of coral and limestone, could you do it? If you're an eccentric guy by the name of Ed Leedskalnin, you could—and you did.
Can you taste the past? If records work the way they should, you just might be able to (just look at authentic Civil War recipes if you don't believe me). When you taste recipes from specific times in history, you can get a better look into the life people lived back in the day. That's why I love the idea of eating like a typical person from different time periods.
Oscar parties are fun, but let's face it, they're common as can be. When it's awards ceremony season, that usually means people are going to throw parties so they can make bets on who wins what.
The more you look at the news, the harder it is to have faith that corporations will do the right thing. It's not even because of old industry standards involving environmental damage like the things that happened in Bhopal or Love Canal either. New evidence of corporate corruption crops up all the time.
If there's one thing that's old as humankind, it's crime. Crime happens every day, in every part of the world. Violent crime is still a somewhat regular occurrence, even though reports of it have gone down tremendously since the 1970s.
Evolution has taught us that different environments will make creatures adopt different traits. The more similar two environments are, the more likely it is that the animals that live there will have similar traits.
