Q:sorry, the ask dialog constrains my ability to explain myself. i was trying to get at the difference between being fed for nourishment (you get 3 square meals a day, at consistent intervals) and being fed because you feel like it (i'm bored, what's in the kitchen? look, sugar and fat!). it's partially about the quality of the food we eat (junk food doesn't make you feel full the same way) but also about our cultural habits around food have changed dramatically in the last ~100 years.
blah, food culture/politics is interesting to me, sorry.
No need to apologize, that’s perfectly fine. that makes a lot more sense.
like i would like everybody to be fully engaged in the issue but for that to happen, people need to be fully engaged in the issue

Aka my favourite short of theirs :D

yeah, it’s the difference between hunger and appetite. it happens a lot for me.
I guess I’ve never really thought about the difference between those concepts but yeah, that’s it. Those things are really decoupled for me.
Q:separating "being hungry" from "wanting to eat" is a huge boon to the modern food industry. it used to be more common for someone in the household to cook a full meal, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and for everyone in the family to eat the amount that was prepared, at routine times, as a group. these days, americans snack all day, skip meals, and eat food that is convenient because it doesn't need to be cooked. michael pollan wrote some good books on this, including "food rules".
I don’t really understand what you’re saying here. It seems to me like the second scenario you describe actually brings “being hungry” and “wanting to eat” into closer alignment with one another.
What I was thinking about when I made that post is the physical sensation of hunger, without actually wanting or being interested in the act of eating food. That’s something I get a lot.
If you’re anything like me, you like nothing more than fighting about Doctor Who on the internet. Mainly by ignoring the spirit of any given argument, and arguing pedantically about The Facts.
I’m reading Doctor Who Magazine’s special on the “2013 series” (that is what they’ve decided to call eight of the ten episodes from 2013 and one from 2012), so here are some things I’ve read that would’ve been useful to know in arguments I’ve had over the last year.
- The original idea for the companion was Victorian governess Beryl, an idea from autumn 2011. In January 2012, present-day Clara replaced her. Clara was already written into The Snowmen - she is then put into Asylum of the Daleks as well.
- Moffat did pitch a Jenny/Strax/Vastra spin-off to Ben Stephenson, but then pulled back out when he remembered he already had two telly shows to make.
- Hide and Crimson Horror were intended to be in each others’ spots. No reason given for the swap so far, but just imagine two Gatisses on the trot.

I don’t know if this is true for everyone, but for me the physical experience of “being hungry” and the psychological experience of “wanting to eat” are distinct and often disconnected and it’s pretty common for me to experience one without the other. Is that a thing for most people?
