Always on the lookout for good books like this so thanks for the link! I haven't fermented any beverages before yet but I am familiar with fermented foods. Look forward to hearing the results of your cider experiment!

Ugh, that looks so good.

Happy Hub-day! I've been enjoying our games of Go! Would love to see a more detailed post on your cider. I've been gathering the equipment for a go at mead but love a good homemade cider.

Good read. Interesting and little scary. I had to admit I chuckled a good bit about Adam Neumann's company WeWork transitioning to WeCompany in order to start up real-estate and education missions. It automatically brought to mind the book We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. Maybe he wasn't so wrong in his prediction....

Seems strange to me that his wife would've gotten angry with him and not the media

I think you're just supposed to fill in the circumstances with nameless horror because that's pretty much all the subject seems to have experienced. When reading I was thinking about the lack of specific detail and the limitation of the main character's viewpoint being our only insight into the story's world. I would say that the goal is to put the reader on the same level of awareness as the thing in the basement and allow our minds to fill in whatever is upstairs. That is what makes it most relatable to the real world; our experiences will conjure up things we abhor to fill the gap in detail about what's outside the basement.

There's a very slick tutorial/lessons sections on the site. Highly recommend.

I've only won about once or twice out of all the games I've played so far haha definitely not much hope here but I can feel myself picking up different things so it's fun to learn!
