1. "Excerpt from: Adonais: An elegy on the death of John KeatsAnd in a mad tranceStrike with our spirit's knifeInvulnerable nothingsWe decayLike corpses in a charnelFear & GriefConvulse is & consume usDay by dayAnd cold hopes swarmLike worms withinOur living clay"

2. "Widespread introduction of the process [of irradiating foods] has thus far been impeded, however, by a reluctance among consumers to eat things that have been exposed to radiation. According to current USDA regulations, irradiated meat must be identified with a special label and with a radura (the internationally recognized symbol of radiation). The Beef Industry Food Safety Council - whose members include the meatpacking and fast food giants - has asked the USDA to change its rules and make the labeling of irradiated meat completely voluntary. The meatpacking industry is also working hard to get rid of the word 'irradiation,; much preferring the phrase 'cold pasteurization.'...From a purely scientific point of view, irradiation may be safe and effective. But he [a slaughterhouse engineer] is concerned about the introduction of highly complex electromagnetic and nuclear technology into slaughterhouses with a largely illiterate, non-English-speaking workforce."

3. "A nationwide study published by the USDA in 1996 found that [...] 78.6 percent of the ground beef contained microbes that are spread primarily by fecal matter. The medical literature on the causes of food poisoning is full of euphemisms and dry scientific terms: coliform levels, aerobic plate counts, sorbitol, MacConkey agar, and so on. Behind them lies a simple explanation for why eating hamburger meat makes you sick: There is shit in the meat."

6. "<…> ji klausdavo manes, koki kara kariauju aš. Nežinodavau atsakymo, nenorejau nei gyventi, nei mirti, nei šloves, nei stabilumo, neturejau svajoniu ar tikslu, neturejau valios ar talento, netgi nebuvau labai graži, buvau viena iš tu tukstanciu moteru, kurios sekdavo iš paskos savo mylimiesiems ir budavo ištikimos arbatos virejos, lovos pakloteliai, žoles pjovejos. Buvau lengvai pakeiciama ir mano veidas primine plauku dažu naudojimo instrukciju paveiksliukus – buvo beveidis."

7. "Ne viena pasaka nepatikekit,Nors šimtmecius ilgusDaugybe kraštu jas laike tikrove.Netikekit ir tuo, kaKiti žmones be perstojo kalba,Nors išminciaus žodžius jie kartotuAr pasiremtu raštais šventais.Netikekite niekuo,Sapnuose ka regejot, ka vaizduote sukure,Nors manot, kad siuncia tuos vaizdiniusDievas.Nepriimkite žodžiu už tiesa,Nors kažkas juos pridengtu šventuolio arMeistro vardu.Patikekit tik tuo, ko karti patirtisIlgai Jus pacius per išbandymus moke,Kas nekliudo geroves nei Jums, nei kitiems."

8. "A bronze plaque read: GAIUS PLINIUS CAECILIUS SECUNDUSDan made a face. "Get a load of the guy with the funny name.""I think that's Pliny the younger, the famous Roman writer," Amy supplied. She bent down to read the English portion of the tablet. "Right. In A.D. 79, Pliny chronicled the destruction of Pompeii by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. It's one of the earliest eyewitness accounts of a major disaster."Dan yawned. "Doesn't this remind you of the clue hunt? You know–you telling me a bunch of boring stuff, and me not listening?"

9. "Nick ran smack into me."Ooof!" he hollered, grabbing me around the waist to keep me from falling down the rest of the staircase.That's when I realized Mom thought Nick and I were going on a date together.Quickly Nick let me go.He looked huge, frowning down at me from the step above. "Why are you stopping in the middle of the stairs?""Why are you tailgating me?"He put his hand behind me, at butt level, without touching me. "What is that?" he demanded.I bent a little and slapped my butt, "Something the heir to a meat fortune should know all about. USDA grade-A prime,baby." I straightened. "Just kidding. Really, it's my butt."He put his hands on his hips, and from below I noticed his strong superhero chin again.He grumbled, "Why do you have 'boy toy' written across your butt?""Oh!" I put my hand over the words, realizing that I probably should have been embarrassed about this sooner. "These are my brother's jeans. He wrote it to annoy me. Or to get me a date."

12. "Once upon a time, USDA inspectors had to condemn any bird with such fecal contamination. But about thirty years ago, the poultry industry convinced the USDA to reclassify feces so that it could continue to use these automatic eviscerators. Once a dangerous contaminant, feces are now classified as a "cosmetic blemish."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Author: Mark Bittman
14. "One USDA scientist went so far as to claim that there has never been a documented case of food-borne illness from eating fermented vegetables."
Author: Michael Pollan
15. "USDA regulations spell out precisely what sort of facility and system is permissible, but they don't set thresholds for food-borne pathogens. (That would require the USDA to recall meat from packers who failed to meet the standards, something the USDA, incredibly, lacks the authority to do.)"
Author: Michael Pollan
16. "Me and the folks who buy my food are like the Indians -- we just want to opt out. That's all the Indians ever wanted -- to keep their tepees, to give their kids herbs instead of patent medicines and leeches. They didn't care if there was a Washington, D.C., or a Custer or a USDA; just leave us alone. But the Western mind can't bear an opt-out option. We're going to have to refight the Battle of the Little Big Horn to preserve the right to opt out, or your grandchildren and mine will have no choice but to eat amalgamated, irradiated, genetically prostituted, barcoded, adulterated fecal spam from the centralized processing conglomerate."
Author: Michael Pollan
17. "In 75 foreign countries, we have a presence in the USDA."
Author: Mike Johanns
18. "Bet kai jis grieždavo violoncele, o violoncele budavo liesa ir nusiminusi kaip vieniša raudona karve rudens pievoje, Muzikantas pradedavo raudonuoti. Ir taip išrausdavo, kad iš tolo atrode, tarsi didžiulis graudus pomidoras sedi scenoje ir stryku brauko sau skersai pilvo. Ir kai visi jau pradedavo jo gailetis ir gailetis vienišos liudnos karves didžiules pievos viduryje, staiga jis atmerkdavo savo oranžine aki, ir žmones pamatydavo, kaip ten, apanus ruko, anapus upes, pateko saule, nušviecia žole smaragdo šviesa ir pavercia liudnaja karve ugningu eržilu. Eržilas lekia prie upes, ir neimanoma suprasti - ar dunda jo kanopos, ar plaka klausytoju širdys..."

19. "Nou, Stanley Donne legde ons uit dat alle godsdiensten ter wereld, occulte broederschappen, alle mystici en sjamanen, of het nu Rozenkruisers, Ridders van de Ronde Tafel, Egyptische hogepriesters, Tibetaanse boeddhistishce monniken, Zuid-Amerikaanse naguals, Indiase yogi's, Keltische druïden of discipelen van Jezus waren, allemaal hetzelfde doel nastreefden, namelijk om het bewustzijn van het individu dusdanig te vergroten en te verheffen dat hij of zij uiteindelijk tot een kosmisch bewustzijn komt en toetreedt tot hogere dimensies."

Today's Quote

I had never walked on the street alone when I was growing up in Calcutta, up to age 20. I had never handled money. You know, there was always a couple of bodyguards behind me, who took care if I wanted... I needed pencils for school, I needed a notebook, they were the ones who were taking out the money. I was constantly guarded."
