This post is going to be all over the place, so hold on and try to lean into the corners.
A few months ago, I read online about one Scott Martin in the UK who ate nothing but mainly potato chips and toast. I can’t find the article now but at the time I read that his doctors said he was in relatively good shape surprisingly but stressed he should eat more healthy.
Now when I read that, and I know this is hard to believe for some people, I did not take that as a green light to increase my fried chicken comsumption. Even I thought that his diet was too extreme.
Martin died not very long ago at the age of 20. His liver was failing and his blood would not clot. He bled to death after a procedure to remove three infected teeth. You can read about it here.
I’ll probably stop eating chips for about two days. The important thing is to realize is that moderation is the key, even with fried chicken.
In other less depressing news, the much talked about PEI expansion of our company is going ahead. No one from our Vancouver office is going to PEI. Instead, 6 to 8 programmers are coming to our office for a few weeks of training. I just found this out today. I mentioned to a co-worker that I was hoping a few of the programmers would be women. Our office is a sausage-fest. My co-worker looked at me like I was crazy.
“Erwin, we work for a video game company.”
And with that, my hopes were dashed. Next Monday, 6 to 8 guys will be joining us.
Oh, one last thing. If anyone missed Kari Byron on Letterman last night, I think I can digitize her segment and host it on my server. Please let me know.
