Glorious, Glorious Food

It’s downright amazing when you spend some time to think about the metamorphosis of how we approach the issue of sustenance.

Back in the day we ate for need of survival (nobody wanted to be an emancipated skeleton), and yet look at how we glorify our food these days.

IF IT’S NOT INSTAGRAM WORTHY, WE STICK OUR NOSES UP IN DISGUST AND WALK AWAY.

Errr, wtf?
Whatever happened to tasting the things you put in your mouth? Ignoring the aesthetics but focusing on the very essence of what makes your food edible?

Sigh.

Anyways, this rant comes courtesy of this imgur gallery I stumbled upon quite some time ago but never got around to publishing. I don’t think I could ever bring myself to doing something like this (not to mention the time and effort involved) purely because of the attachment issues I know I’d struggle with.

At about 96 % through my book, I finally decided to wikipedia the plot to see WTF was going on.
From the very start, nothing seemed to make sense; there was no backstory as to who the characters were, what they could do, and no elaboration as to what the relationship was between Jake and co.

Turns out, the person who uploaded the file had mislabelled book 2 as book 1.
In all honesty, it’s half my fault too for not checking to see how many books existed in the series.
I kept thinking that Mr Riggs had an awfully peculiar (pun fully intended) way of writing and that all would be revealed at some point in the book but alas, at 96%, what sort of revelation can be had to fill in the gaps ?

Cue Homer and his signature D’oh!
