"I only eat it for the nutrients..."

I just started watching Silicon Valley (HBO) and there was a scene that reminded me of Soylent. I thought it was hilarious.

You guys can relate, right? lol

So apparently the actor in this scene (Christopher Evan Welch) had a heart attack while filming season 1 of the show.

That’s really depressing, moreso because they explained away his death (before I knew he actually died) in the show in a hilarious way and I was laughing really hard at it. I’m a horrible person…

I wonder if they were making fun of Steve Jobs in this scene, what with him taking on the whole Jain diet.

Then again asparagus is a root vegetable so maybe not.

I don’t think it is. It grows above ground, at least the part we eat does.

I was amazed to learn today that asparagus grows into a bush when left to its own devices. Before today I would never have been able to find wild asparagus in a hypothetical post-apocalyptic world.
