Link Dump

I feel like I’ve been doing these more often lately, but nevertheless, more links for your enjoyment, with some shot and chasers embedded in shot and chasers.

  • Shot: America’s Angriest Store: How Whole Foods Attracts Complete Shitheads. – I’m sympathetic to this cause, but the funniest part of this article is the inherent irony. Embedded Shot:

    I’ve shopped at Whole Foods in every time zone, in at least 10 different cities: LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Austin, Chicago, Milwaukee, New York, DC and Richmond, VA. I love Whole Foods.

    Embedded Chaser (from the same article):

    The problem with Whole Foods is their regular customers. They are, across the board, across the country, useless, ignorant, and miserable. They’re worse than miserable, they’re angry.

    Heh. Still a fun article though

  • Chaser: Whole Foods: America’s Temple of Pseudoscience – Who’d have thunk that Whole Foods was so divisive:

    From the probiotics aisle to the vaguely ridiculous Organic Integrity outreach effort (more on that later), Whole Foods has all the ingredients necessary to give Richard Dawkins nightmares. And if you want a sense of how weird, and how fraught, the relationship between science, politics, and commerce is in our modern world, then there’s really no better place to go. Because anti-science isn’t just a religious, conservative phenomenon—and the way in which it crosses cultural lines can tell us a lot about why places like the Creation Museum inspire so much rage, while places like Whole Foods don’t.


  • Shot: Headshots – Photos by an awesome person.
  • Chaser: As a European this is how I imagine Americans have breakfast – Another photo by an awesome person. However, this is, of course, completely inaccurate. Normally there are two eggs, half of the bacon is substituted for sausages, and if you’re in Philly, Scrapple is involved.

And that’s all for now. See you soon suckers friends!
