Mr. Robot [8]. Important Note: This recommendation requires some special provisos! Although this television series contains a great wealth of practical computing hacking tradecraft it is marred by  some unnecessary crudity and kinkiness.  So do not allow children to watch it, and be ready to skip past the brief gratuitous sex scenes!  (This series is also available free for Amazon Prime members [9].)

The video “Forks over Knives” is available on Netflix. I started a vegan lifestyle, and I have never been healthier.

I am not a proponent of veganism. But I am a pragmatist. Being prepared to live on just what you can grow in an oversize vegetable garden is wise, since the day may come that this is your only source of food! In some ways, those accustomed to a vegan (or semi-vegan) diet might be better prepared than most other Americans.
