I wasn't sure I wanted to read this, given the title, since I'm sitting here with tea and bagel, but I peeked and saw what it was about. The sugar photo is amazing. I wonder if all that sugar was, in fact, usable. I wonder what the sugar deep in that pile was like after such pressure and heat. I wonder if it was after this discovery that the Coca Cola Company really took off. That's a lot of sugar. [Wait ... a million tons is only two-days worth of production nowadays. Geez. A million of anything is nothing these days. Twenty years ago, the teabag string industry used a million pounds of cotton per year. It seems an absurd number, and yet it's real. It's actually a small market. This is one reason it's good for me to visit cities now and then, to see a different scale of things.]
