          I'm so glad I don't have to deal with that bullshit anymore, it's the worst. I used to keep a daily email to myself open where I'd post blocked links for later.

                    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                      WTF is with the cellulose? Presumably there have to be some trained chefs working on these recipes. Do they come out of cooking school with the idea that food needs a denatured forest product to make it taste better? I'm almost in awe of the audacity. And to think that it's nowhere near the worst additive.

                          Meh, the cellulose doesnt bother me. Also I knew about the marketing wiggly-ness of so-called "free-range" eggs. Also, beware "all vegetarian diet" eggs. That doesnt mean they were given grass and veggies, it means they were given soy based crumble. Also I am suspicious of ones that do not state that the hens were pasture raised yet still claim lots of omega-3 benefits. Im imagining they just fed the hens crumble packed with additive omega-3s and hoped for the best.

                          Did not know about the zombie orange juice, thats hilarious. Also, this explains why "blueberry" products have always made me kinda ill while real blueberries dont.

                            I called the manufacturer of Advil one day to see if the filler used was gluten free. The lady who answered the phone told me well yes, it's wood pulp. And wood pulp is gluten free.

                              This is a factual statement. Cant fault them for that.
