While we’re at it, can I give a shout out to the humble freezer as a whole? People treat freezer veggies like they’re Satan’s turds tossed in garlic sauce when what they really are is damn useful. One of our most important staples is a Big Ass Bag of Broccoli - I feel uncomfortable when we get low.

I’m hoping we get more Maze this season. From the trailer, it looks promising. One thing I really appreciate about this show is the female friendships and how they gave Maze a way into developing her own connections to Linda and Chloe.

I believe you mean Restaurant Brands International. So, BK, Tim Hortons and Popeyes.

I don’t think you understand what free speech means. It means no government censorship. It doesn’t mean no social consequences.

I have severe asthma (was diagnosed at six weeks old). Despite countless nights to pediatric urgent care and ERs for respiratory therapy and even a stint in the ICU for pneumonia complications for a few days in my teens (and I was out of school for over a month), my parents still resisted masking until both my sister Read more

One of the scariest aspects of this nightmare is realizing that intelligence, training and education can’t save you from bad thinking if the right temptation comes along.

Copying my own comment somewhere else: Asian girl from a Buddhist family chiming in to say that this IS a bad idea, because it (a) is offensive to many in the West and (b) makes my religion into a cute accessory.

There are an alarming number of nurses buying into crazy conspiracy theories about COVID-19, or who are dismissing it as no big deal. This shit has very real consequences.

I would say that people in certain parts of Asia that have been using it for centuries can still use it (and they are) within their own countries.  But it is forever toxic outside of those places.  While the company here is from China, they should have had the good sense to limit this product to their Asian customers.

Some of the best meat on the stupid fish is in the hard to get to bits of the head. Why don’t people know this anymore?

If you put the necklace on backwards the points will face the other way turning it from a “good swastika” to a “bad swastika", but okay Shein... It's almost like fast fashion is bad or??

That’s insane to me since most nice restaurants these days will serve you the entire fish. It’s funny how basic white American culture is—to recoil at the entire fish. Like where do you think the fillet came from?

You can already change every customization other than gender at the Barbershop.

It looks amazing. I just wish they’d do away with the arbitrary faction barrier so we can play with our friends, without needing to make an entirely different character. That might have made sense in 2004, but it’s really an unnecessary anachronism now, even from the in-game storyline perspective.

It’s funny that you frame it with that language, since cancel culture uses the tools of moral panic, too. The difference is that cancel culture, for the most part, turns the tables onto those who have traditionally used moral panic to silence others.

What gets me, as a hunter is when people who eat meat show distaste for hunting. I go out and shoot a deer that lived an entirely free life, doesn’t suffer (at most runs 30 yards and falls over dead), and harvest as much meat as I can from it. That is far more ethical in my eyes than heading down to the grocery store Read more

There was a passage from Bill Buford’s Heat that’s stuck with me, is that one time he bought a whole pig to butcher and it was delivered at the farmer’s market. And sure, a whole grown pig is an enormous task, but got a lot of dirty looks from a crowd that was otherwise the kind of “foodies” that clamor for farm to Read more

I mean, there’s a bit of a difference between the specifics of the Nazi aesthetic, which everyone recognizes to be Nazi, and a hand signal that means something different to lots of people across the world, but generally does not mean something bad. (Or apparently in Brazil it meant a different bad thing but was Read more

So, the solution is to just let racists have a symbol? To just gain ground over something that has been universally used to say OK for who knows how long?
