Bull? No. Just bacteria.
They always say that we learn new things everyday so today was no different. What did I learn today?
1. There are actually such creatures as Professional Online Gamers! People who play computer games online for a living. How do they get jobs like that? Sit at home all day and play games. And get paid enough to make it a career?
2. The bottle of beefy goodness that I bought from the supermarket turns out to be 100% VEGETARIAN!!! I had always thought that BOVRIL was made from beef. Turns out I was wrong according to the Unilever label on the bottle. 100% vegetarian!!! When the fuck did Bovril become vegetarian??? Since I was a kid vegetarian meant Marmite. And Bovril was beef. This is really traumatic for me. Another childhood memory becomes a shattered illusion. Could they have brought out a vegetarian variant? Why?
3. The state of Selangor debuts its first English language newspaper today. It's called the Selangor Times. And it's free. I think. Anyone seen it?
What did you learn today?
p/s turns out I am the f**king idiot. I went to do a quick check on Wikipedia and discovered that Unilever in 2004 changed the composition of Bovril from a beef extract to a yeast extract! Unilever also claimed that in taste tests conducted 40% preferred the original and 50% the new taste. 10% didn't notice the difference!
So, there you go. We learn something new everyday.
