Jarod Kintz
“Education will only take you so far. To go even further, I’d recommend getting a piggyback ride from a midget half your body weight.”
Jarod Kintz, The Days of Yay are Here! Wake Me Up When They're Over.

“Camels can go many weeks without drinking anything at all. The notion that they cache water in their humps is pure myth—their humps are made of fat, and water is stored in their body tissues. While other mammals draw water from bloodstreams when faced with dehydration, leading to death by volume shock, camels tap the water in their tissues, keeping their blood volume stable. Though this reduces the camel’s bulk, they can lose up to a third of their body weight with no ill effects, which they can replace astonishingly quickly, as they are able to drink up to forty gallons in a single watering.” (pp.69-70)”
Michael Benanav, Men of Salt: Crossing the Sahara on the Caravan of White Gold

Cynthia Sass
“Organic foods are richer in nutrients. This means they improve satiety and naturally help regulate body weight…Plants produce antioxidants to protect themselves from pests like insects and to withstand harsh weather. When they’re treated with chemicals such as pesticides, they don’t need to produce as much of their own natural defenses, so the levels are lower.” (p.203)”
Cynthia Sass, Cinch! Conquer Cravings, Drop Pounds, and Lose Inches

G.K. Chesterton
“Just the other day in the Underground I enjoyed the pleasure of offering my seat to three ladies.”
G.K. Chesterton
