What is ‘shaky food security’? The article from Sciencemag needs membership to be read and i couldn’t read it at all. Can you please explain more about shaky food security?

Is “shaky food” a funny way of saying “Jello”?

Anybody else see naughty stuff there in the middle, or is it just me? I didn’t catch it at first, but a glance in peripheral vision caused a double-take.

It must be a result of our evolutionary survival strategy: quickly spot human faces (or other body parts) even when they’re not really there (better false positives than false negatives).
