32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Hey!

33. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
Sure, why not.
Mostly, it's very engaging. Pollan's picture of how commodity corn makes up the majority of industrial food is incredible (and somewhat terrifying.) A chemist with a mass spectrometer could actually tell how much commodity corn is in your diet by measuring presences of a certain corn-related isotope.

Also interesting is the account of a week he spends on a farm in Virginia that's based largely on grass and practices an ornate system of animal rotation so the various species interdepend on each other (using each other's waste for food and fertilizer, etc.) It makes you wish all farming was run that way.

He does occasionally go off on tangents, though, and some of his sentence structures are a bit impenetrable. But overall, a very good read. I'm about to read the part of the book in which he forages, hunts, and gathers a meal all on his own to eat.
