Let's be honest, don't we want our olives to be a little experienced?  Just me and, presumably, Popeye?

anuran: In the U.S., companies ignore the rules on good olive oil

What rules? The US industry has ensured that there are no rules and that most of the "olive oil" you buy probably isn't even olive oil.

Toss your olive oil into an erupting volcano and see if things calm down.

Surprisingly, the tips are pretty good for American-produced olive oils. If you're gonna shell out for the good European stuff, just look for a DOP on top of when it was harvested/pressed.

The dude she talked to seems largely full of shiat on high heat cooking vs smoke point for home cooks, though. Not getting hotter than 425 F before adding the meat makes for some sad, sad stir fry. Also uh...you shouldn't be using olive oil for that anyway, for flavor reasons. Never mind smoke point reasons.

Deep frying in olive oil sounds pretty farking dubious. I could see it being good for falafel, but I'm pretty sure all that hot oil would damage your waffle maker.

Well, it's certainly liquid at room temperature and contains triglycerides, so I suppose it technically qualifies as an oil
