'Raging Cow' milkI vaguely remember seeing “Raging Cow” chocolate milk on store shelves in the early 2000s. I don’t remember any of the ad campaigns which were supposed to position this milk as edgy, extreme, and the choice of 13-21-year-old consumers. This is probably a good thing. Cows, as a whole, do not rage very much, so the whole concept is silly.

What else. . . finally finished reading The Algebraist by Iain M. Banks. It’s billed as a space opera, and has some similarities to one of those. However, it has a riddle embedded in it, one with a number of really glaring clues distributed throughout the book, and not very many people will be able to guess it before the answer is revealed near the end of the book. Ah well.
