Best quote from Salon ever.

Yeah, I know that's not saying much.
Have you tried to hold a conversation with somebody on a diet? The first 10 pounds they lose are mostly brain.

So true.

Here's a report on the Minnesota Starvation Study, conducted after WWII on volunteers, to determine how to best help people who were suffering from food shortages in war-torn areas. A side of WWII I hadn't really thought about much. It's also an interesting refutation of the Mississippi "no fatties" bill.
