Things You Never Hear On Reality TV Shows
• “I came here to make friends, not to win.”
• “With this project, we bit off exactly the right amount to chew.”
• “I’m here to find someone to have casual sex with.”
• “This basement will make a great woman-cave for you, honey.”
• “This is not at all dangerous. I know exactly how it’s going to turn out.”
• “What’s great about this recipe is that it’s impossible to do at home. If you try, it will take all day and require ingredients that are simply not available from your local grocery.”
• “He did not have near enough alcohol to drink.”
• “My obesity bolsters my self-esteem.”
• “This stunt should be tried at home. We are not professionals.”

The Booze App
The Scottish government has unveiled the ‘Drinking Mirror’ smartphone app, which claims to show the visible effects of regularly drinking too much, such as deeper wrinkles, red cheeks, and weight-gain. By taking a picture of the user, the app aims to prove that ‘dropping a glass size’ could improve your looks over 10 years, with a so-called ‘magic mirror’ showing you how much better you will look if you drink a little less booze. In the same way that dieters sometimes switch to a smaller plate to eat less, the Scottish government is calling on drinkers to drop a glass size as a way of cutting back.
Climate Killing Coffee
Changing climate threatens to reduce the flow of coffee, which fills 1.6 billion cups a day, to a trickle. It may not be long before that after-dinner espresso costs more than the wine with the entrée. If that prospect fills you with dread, you are not alone. There are some 26 million farmers who depend on coffee to feed their families. It’s most valuable tropical export crop, and as the world’s favorite drink, it is big business. In fact, it’s 2nd-most-traded commodity after oil, with exports worth a whopping $15-billion a year. All that is under threat because the coffee industry is built on a plant that is peculiarly vulnerable to our changing climate. (Why not grow it in greenhouses like tomatoes? Because those hothouse ‘maters are plastic-y pink and hard as walnuts.)
