Following morganth is not for everyone.
People who are allergic to BODY ONCE TOLD ME jokes should not follow morganth.

New drug-delivery system disguises chemotherapy drugs as fat, fooling quick-growing and hungry tumor cells that consume the nutrients much faster than normal cells. The drug then activates, suppressing tumor growth. The drug also is lower in toxicity than current drugs, leading to fewer side effects.
TIL that Coke used data from their Freestyle machines to invent the new Sprite Cherry flavor. Must have been a lot of people who made Sprite Cherries of their own in the machines.
It hadn't occurred to me that they'd be using data from those machines as free market research, but it makes perfect sense.

Chinese food, NYC
I don’t understand why anyone in NYC goes to Panda Express. I went this week because my phone company gave me a free dish there. It was fine—perfectly average Chinese takeout—but if it hadn’t been free it would have cost nearly $10. A non-chain Chinese takeout place, and I’m sure there were a dozen within easy walking distance of that Panda Express, would have given me food of the same quality for half that.
