Hello everyone. I'm interested in reading more about Darwin's eating habits described in http://qi.com/talk/viewtopic.php?start=0&t=3350 but the majority of the sources are gobbledygook to me. How can I decipher what they mean? (Sorry if this has been described elsewhere, but I can't find a search link either).

what do you mean by "the majority of the sources are gobbledygook to me?"

do you mean that you can't understand them?


If you really want to kow more about his eating habits, then post a thread on it, is what i'd do.

Me either! Since that post was written by the Main Man, I'll let someone else ask him what the flip they mean ...

I think OCF is the Oxford Companion to Food though. (Jaine, T (Ed.), 2006, 2nd ed. Oxford Companion to Food Oxford University Press, Oxford)
