    Meat is not a protein source

    Since the thread started with a troll-ish title ("the sky isn't blue" is incorrect, "the sky isn't my preferred shade of blue" may be correct), I'll entirely ignore the original intent and instead weigh in with my general eating perspective here... I've read the China study, lots of articles on...

    What colors do hops impart to beer?

    Interesting question. I would guess it adds a slight green hue, but we could find out pretty easily.

    Input on logo...

    Not a huge fan of how the fireworks look in any of them. Hard to put my finger on why, but too fuzzy perhaps? I absolutely love the clean lines of everything else, particularly in number 1.
