This Just In . . .

From “FINDINGS” (back page), of Harper’s Magazine, March 2014 issue:

“A compromised refrigerator was sending out spam, and electronic tongues tasted the grapes of Valencia, where engineers created yogurt from the milk of nuts. . . .

“Fat young American women exposed to weight stigma eat more Goldfish, M&M’s, and Skittles, and this higher caloric consumption correlates closely with such expressions of shame as slouching and gaze aversion. . . .

“Dogs prefer, when they are off leash and Earth’s magnetic field is calm, to urinate and defecate with their bodies aligned on a north-south axis.” 

I love this magazine. Superb writing front to back.
