Internets roundup

First of all, three people can convince you to do something. I had thought it was two. Like "Hey, you all want to do ______?" "Yeah, let's do ______!" and then it's a done deal. Either way, depending on who you are and what you're proposing, I will probably enjoy being your second or third, even if I'm not totally into it, because there's nothing that helps an idea more than a good second or third.

Fish chart fish chart fish chart. This is harder to carry, but easier to use, than the Monterey Bay guide. A few things to note:
- salmon is either The Best or The Worst. (farmed is bad. like fish in general. most farmed fish is worse than most wild fish. Also, Atlantic wild caught is bad. If you're on the East Coast, don't eat salmon unless it's specifically Alaskan wild salmon. They'll probably love to tell you, if it is.)
- all the tastiest tunas: pretty bad.
- most shellfish are okay. except those big fancy sea scallops.
- unagi is no good! sorry, sushi fans, I'm probably killing your buzz. Try the lesser-known fish, you're probably better off in terms of the environment and your brain. and smaller fish, in general, are better than bigger fish. don't know which is which? learn! fish do not grow in small blocky meaty pieces!

Names make things, and the name "foodie" makes a bunch of us sound ridiculous. Come up with the next name and a bunch of people who care about what they put in their bodies will beat a path to your door.
