Melania Trump speech Thu, Jul 21, 2016
I think the whole fracas of Melania Trump's plagiarized speech at the Republican National Convention was an intentional move meant to distract attention away from the fact that the RNC is a complete shitshow. #politics

Diet snacking Thu, Jul 21, 2016
I've felt for a long time that the success or failure of any one particular diet comes down to the snacks you're willing and able to eat.  Most diets consist of cutting something, whether it's calories or carbs or fat or wheat.  It's not particularly difficult to come up with a meal that meets those requirements.  Generally if you stick with lean meat and vegetables, that's all there is to it.  But what about all those times between meals, when you used to eat cookies and crackers and chips and candy?  Diet snacks are usually crappy things like celery sticks and green peppers.  These are unsustainable as snacks unless they're something you normally eat.  The key is to find something that meets the requirements of the diet that also doesn't negatively affect your health in some other way, all while being desirable to you.  Instead of stupid vegetables, go with pickles.  Instead of gluten-free crackers that taste like cardboard, go with corn chips.  There are a million ways to stay within the rules of a diet, but a lot of it comes down to finding snacks you can live with. #food
