    Milk offers a stunning case in point. Dairymen, especially those serving crowded American cities in the nineteenth century, learned that there were profits to be made by skimming and watering down their product. The standard recipe was a pint of lukewarm water to every quart of milk—after the cream had been skimmed off. To improve the bluish look of the remaining liquid, milk producers learned to add whitening agents such as plaster of paris or chalk. Sometimes they added a dollop of molasses to give the liquid a more golden, creamy color. To mimic the expected layer of cream on top, they might also add a final squirt of something yellowish, occasionally pureed calf brains.

    “Where are the police?” demanded New York journalist John Mullaly as he detailed such practices and worse in his 1853 book, The Milk Trade in New York and Vicinity. Mullaly’s evidence included reports from frustrated physicians stating that thousands of children were killed in New York City every year by dirty (bacteria-laden) and deliberately tainted milk. His demands for prosecution were partly theater. Despite his and others’ outraged demands for change, no laws existed to make such adulterations illegal. Still Mullaly continued to ask, when would enough be enough?

    Fakery and adulteration ran rampant in other American products as well. “Honey” often proved to be thickened, colored corn syrup, and “vanilla” extract a mixture of alcohol and brown food coloring. “Strawberry” jam could be sweetened paste made from mashed apple peelings laced with grass seeds and dyed red. “Coffee” might be largely sawdust, or wheat, beans, beets, peas, and dandelion seeds, scorched black and ground to resemble the genuine article. Containers of “pepper,” “cinnamon,” or “nutmeg” were frequently laced with a cheaper filler material such as pulverized coconut shells, charred rope, or occasionally floor sweepings. “Flour” routinely contained crushed stone or gypsum as a cheap extender. Ground insects could be mixed into brown sugar, often without detection—their use linked to an unpleasant condition known as “grocer’s itch.”

    By the end of the nineteenth century, the sweeping industrial revolution—and the rise of industrial chemistry—had also brought a host of new chemical additives and synthetic compounds into the food supply. Still unchecked by government regulation, basic safety testing, or even labeling requirements, food and drink manufacturers embraced the new materials with enthusiasm, mixing them into goods destined for the grocery store at sometimes lethal levels. The most popular preservative for milk—a product prone to rot in an era that lacked effective refrigeration—was formaldehyde, its use adapted from the newest embalming practices of undertakers. Processors employed formaldehyde solutions—sold under innocuous names such as Preservaline—to restore decaying meats as well. Other popular preservatives included salicylic acid, a pharmaceutical com- pound, and borax, a mineral- based material best known as a cleaning product.

    Formaldehyde milk!

    There is homework though or as the guy was saying ‘kak bui domashnoe zadanie’ and everyone is like ‘kak bui’ (like) homework or actually homework...?
    But the homework is just to read some articles off our company website for the Russian division of the company and that should be pretty interesting

    Basically any honey that doesn’t solidify after awhile is suspect. Any honey that comes in a plastic bear is suspect.

    The corn industry uses the pesticides that kill off the bees and then replaces their honey in the marketplace with the vastly inferior corn syrup.

    It really is but I suppose we could have gone to get some from one of the tea and coffee stations around the floor
    Man I am actually so happy and energized from this but also quite horrified at how my language has atrophied. At least my understanding is ok, probably from listening to Russian music. But my language generation is just garbage, like I was trying to say that I received a gift of Russian books from my department in undergrad and I could not get the word for received (I had in mind poteryal, to lose, and knew that was wrong so I just gave up on the sentence, and only on the metro home I was like ohhhh wait it’s poluchil you total idiot). I did tell them that it’s been a decade and basic conversation is hard for me but I understand better than I speak (and again I definitely do both better than the other learners so I don’t feel like I’m bringing things down really)

    Also still no clarity on how to say data science, like nauka dannikh is the literal translation but I need to do some internet ting and figure out how people actually say it. But yeah even the Russian people were like ‘privet, ya rabotayu v......advanced analytics...?’

    F'real, Cauldron Familiar + WItch's oven is just........ ridiculous? It's super cheap and effective.

    I can play a cat (Dealing very little damage directly), play an oven, block with the cat, stuff the cat in the oven before he gets hit but after the attacker lunges towards it, feed the dead cat a pie made from itself so it comes back (And deals more damage).
