Barring those who are genetically incapable of liking them, I’ve always convinced people to like brussels sprouts by serving them sauteed in butter with a maple glaze. Eventually they graduate to my preferred garlic roasted recipe.

I was told by someone formerly in the restaurant business that they will often buy double-yolk eggs so that they could count each as two. They may cost more individually, but by the yolk it was less expensive. And it’s really not that bad for the customer – you get about 2 medium eggs’ worth from one jumbo double.
Songbirds sing very sweetly, but when they get aggressive their tone can change dramatically. If I walked past my cage of cute little finches and they all started screeching at me from their perches, I would be seriously freaked out.

Fossil fuel power plants convert 50% of their energy source to energy. Counting transmission through the grid, and efficiency loss in an electric engine, this may drop as low as 40% for EVs. Diesel engines top out in the high 30s, with most regular cars ranging 11-30%. It’s not advanced math. The least efficient EVs fed on coal will still edge out the most efficient gas cars.
