MiO Liquid Water Enhancer. Apparently They're Serious

Have we climbed so high on Maslow's pyramid? Have Americans reached the top, realized it's not good enough, and started building ladders to get higher?

Apparently water, the thing we need to survive, is now so boring that we need to liven it up with the flavors that MiO offers.

"Oh, I don't like to drink water. It's icky and boring"

If it is what you need to survive (or improve your health) it's delicious.

I am saying NO to MiO.

The Bread of Woe. A (not so) Happy Song About Getting Fat

Here is a song from charlieissocoollike on youtube. It looks all too familiar. This is part of the reason I'm in Health Promotion.

I just thought I'd pass this along.
It's pretty catchy.
(Pretty sure it's whole wheat bread)

Tuvan Throat Singing

This video is rather amazing. It's simple. It's authentic, and the tune is mesmerizing. The aesthetics are perfect. It's just two friends singing in their regular coats, against an icy river as a background, while strumming a banjo-ish thing.

I heard about throat singing a while ago. The demonstration at the time was kind of an ugly one. I still don't know enough about throat singing to satisfy my interest. If someone could recommend some videos or an album that they like, it would be awesome.
