After one receives an advanced degree (mine is in Canine Cuisine-if you must use the term “Doggie Dining”, you may but only if you give me a treat first), one is expected to perform original research in the field and publish the results. I did the research and I’m publishing.
The world is running out of clean water and nutritional resources. I didn’t specialize in water (do you know what fish do in it?) but it behooves us to explore non-traditional sources of nutrients. I’ve written about the suitability of forest products (see March 27) and determined that currency is not cost effective (March 4). Continuing my examination of possible new unappreciated food groups, as a by-product of my investigation of currency, I also found the packaging to be quite tasty and nutritious-it provides 100% of the daily requirement of Vitamin Lint.
Research on this is an on-going effort. For the present time, my research will be confined to pockets like these. This was cotton and I do not anticipate any research into synthetics like nylon and polyester because I believe in an organic diet.
Since petroleum is an ingredient in fertilizer, I’ve started investigations into eliminating the plant intermediary that converts this fertilizer. Perhaps other things from petroleum are nutritious. To this end, I am taking the advice given in “The Graduate” (since I am one)- “Plastics”
I found this plastic to be lacking in nutrition but fun to eat. I plan to revisit the plastics alternative periodically to determine if nutritional improvements have been implemented.
