I have not set foot in a grocery store in years. Nevermore will I bumble through endless confusing aisles like a pack-donkey searching for feed while the smell of rotting flesh fills my nostrils and fluorescent lights sear my eyeballs and sappy love songs torture my ears.
Having worked in a grocery store when I was 15 I can commiserate with the desire to never step inside one ever again (although I’m not on the same page when it comes to the meat department, I crave beef all the time when on 100% Soylent).
Always know as much as possible. I think all value at some point comes from information asymmetry.
I work with Healthcare organizations a lot, so I know a thing or two about information asymmetry. Information asymmetry creates economic rents, value, on the other hand, is created lots of different ways, the simplest to understand is by specialization of labor.
One of my fears is someone would turn down a social eating engagement to work and drink Soylent.
Here’s a quote for the foodie bloggers who are militantly anti-Soylent.
I used to dream of one day being able to afford shopping at Whole Foods, but now it’s irrelevant to me.
And I’ll finish with the one I found most amusing.
