Read Up On It For September 21st, 2012

This week’s Read Up On It delves into the wonders of fermentation, Nova Scotia wine, and “microwave popcorn lung”. Check out this week’s tasty tidbits.

  • First, something a little absurd. A man in the U.S. has been awarded $7 million USD for damages caused by inhaling the fumes from microwave popcorn. He was diagnosed with “microwave popcorn lung.” And of course, this story comes from Gawker.
  • Maclean’s is putting out a special edition issue all about “Canada’s best restaurants”. Check out a sneak peek.
  • Finally, if you haven’t seen this all over social media this week, you probably live under a rock without 3G coverage. Nick Offerman, a.k.a. Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreations, doing slam poetry about bacon.
