There is a man who passed away named Doc Thompson. You likely wont agree with his political point of view however that's not why I mention him. Doc was the absolute master of the in broadcast advert Segway. He would have you leaning into the radio waiting to see what he was talking about like he was describing an important news announcement or vital piece of information only for it to lead to a sponsorship advert. This kind of clean transition is very rare to hear now days and if you wanted to master it your self his old shows are a good way to do that.

climate change is not the fault of humanity, I call it "climate normalizing" considering that we are exiting an ice age, and the fact that it was warmer in the time of the early Roman empire than it is today confirms this

American expat here, working in West Africa. Two food sources here that are abundant and delicious, I always think they would take America by storm, don't understand why they haven't. 1) the Amafish. Delicious freshwater fish, plenty of meat, falls off the bone when you eat it. 2) Guinea Fowl. Domesticated here but a bit pricey. Both food sources seem like some kinda well-kept secret.

I didn’t know this was a northwest thing. I live in Louisiana and growing up we had huge huckleberry bushes. I don’t know when they were planted, but they were in my great-grandparents property and they moved there in the 60s. There were a couple blueberry bushes but much smaller. They also had two kinds of pears, a fig tree, and a crabapple tree. Literally the only place I’ve ever heard of or tasted crabapples has been on my great-grandparents front porch as a child.

You know that there are plantations for truffles in Europe, right? Most are in France but they try to cultivate them in southwest Germany too. Sure it takes some years before you can harvest them but that is not unheard of in agriculture...

The Asimina bush, more commonly known as the pawpaw, has also been difficult to cultivate. They prefer shady lowlands near rivers and lakes. It scent is very faint, which attracts few pollinators. They also tend to clump together as well.

Mulberries are rarely sold commercially outside of farmer's markets, either- which makes the accidental discovery of one of their bushes on a hot summer's day all the more delicious a treat. For those who haven't had the good fortune of trying them before, they're like blackberries but better, in that they're much sweeter and the seeds actually crunch instead of becoming stubborn pieces of contention between your teeth and gums.

Of course curiosity is important. Curiosity is what leads people to make discoveries! Without curiosity, there would be no periodic table, no cars, no phones, no atomic weapons, and we would have never made it to the Moon(minus the fact that we did it prove we were better than the Russians) to name a few things. Why do you think there is a Rover on Mars literally named "Curiosity"?

I live at sea level in Washington State. We get very little snowfall in the rainforest, and it doesn't stick around very long. Plenty of both pink and blue huckleberries here. They are very difficult to grow, though. Almost impossible. Gotta find them in the forest. They love growing on old dead trees.
