I get really concerned when people say they’re ready for a natural disaster because the have instant ramen because… 1) you need to cook that in water that your body would much rather have as just water and 2) it’s packed with sodium that, once consumed, will work to dehydrate you and make you even thirstier for water that’s already in limited supply.



After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.



The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

The benefits of ugly carrots and failed lemons

Would you eat a “hideous orange” or a “ridiculous potato”?  The produce above may look odd, but tastes just the same. Grocery stores commonly throw away anywhere from 20-40% of their fruits and vegetables simply because of the way they look.

This is just one of the steps in the “farm to fork” process where food is unnecessarily thrown away. In fact the United States wastes almost 40% of food to landfill. If we were to plant trees on the land used for this food waste we would be able to offset over 50% of human-made greenhouse gas emissions.  

The Berkeley Food Institute is trying to find ways for us to reduce our food waste. Today they will hold a forum with students, businesses and organizations to find better solutions to this problem.

You can also read more here about what UC is doing to tackle other issues around food.



Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.

She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.

She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.

After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

It’s one of those nights when “being tired” has the same effects as “having too much caffeine”: inability to concentrate and an inability to sleep.

My brain is too awake and my body is too exhausted to be productive. I’m just wasting time listening to Elpis Park on repeat… Except it’s not actually looping; I keep hitting play every time it stops.
