Some would probably argue

That the hot sauce wall at California Tortilla is a depressing
commentary on capitalism and a demonstration of the paralyzing number
of choices modern life puts in front of us, choices that ultimately
lead to social paralysis.

I think it's awesome.

I have a foodie friend or two who would probably orgasm at the sight of so many types of hot sauces - and then they'd walk away with just three to five bottles.

I think in 25 years we're going to see massive numbers of Americans suffering from mental exhaustion.

I don't think trivial choices are mentally exhausting -- indeed, they allow people to feel like they are individuals because they can identify themselves as a "__ kind of person."

It is the proliferation of less-trivial choices, like the freakout many elderly people went through when they had to choose among a dozen different Medicare plans that had all kinds of different coverage, co-pays and deductibles, that stresses most of us.

This post cracked me up totally. As did H Sofia's comment. You two are too much, and I love it.

I want hot sauces specifically designed to my own unique flavor requirements, taste preferences, but I don't want to pay too much for it, and I'd prefer if the bottle was made by fairly paid Lithuanians from recycled glass.
