Much like salt, sugar has played an integral role in the spreading of humans around the world. Domesticated by New Guinea, powdered by India, perfected by Muslims, spread by Crusades, and the reason half of the 11 million slaves were brought to the New World, the story of sugar hasn’t always been sweet. Also discussed: Tesla finally makes the Model 3, Musk digs first tunnel, NASA has to deny Mars child slavery colony, Portland’s Mounted Police no more, free eclipse glasses at libraries, McDonald’s home delivery, hideous sunburns, and the effects of elevation on Todd’s precious Diet Coke refills. Enjoy!
