I’d like to point out that for all my intense love of gadgetry, paper is my first and deepest love when it comes to reading. I’ve chosen to try to embrace the paperless revolution because I like trees and the current availability of books printed on recycled stock fails to meet my needs. Also, I live in a single room, where my books take up most of the space. In any event, I was delighted to see that Reuters says paper is making a “comeback” (I pose the question: did it go somewhere? Where is my postcard?). Also, to the guy who wants us to replace dollar bills with coins? Screw you. I love the fact that my currency and my fancy stationery come from the same paper company.

- An infographic on portion sizes, 1950s – now
- Chemicals that make you fat are now called “obesogens”, and many of them are probably found around the home
