Last week, at Mad Art Lab, I wrote about my utterly disappointing (to put it mildly) experience with so-called miracle fruit. It was supposed to be the perfect solution for those of us who can’t eat dessert things but want to eat dessert things. Turns out, my friends and scientists are liars and for that, I hate them. The long story is at MAL, the short story is: dry heaves.
Except it doesn’t work. It only makes things I love taste terrible and things I don’t like that much taste normal.
Science let me down. I may never trust it again. Unless you can convince me to love again.
Has science ever let you down? Will I ever be able to trust it? How do you cope with science lying to your face? How can I cope? Is there a homeopathic remedy for science betrayal?
