A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

Don’t know if we can look at Coke every the same way again. Be prepared to cringe when you watch the full video  here. 

sugar caramelizes when heated, more shocking news to follow

It’s like that guy setting coffee creamer on fire and being like “people drink this stuff!” and it’s like yeah, a dry powder suspended in air is flammable, shock horror.

   

Never show these guys how candy is made, they’ll shit themselves.

*quietly facepalms forever*

I hate when people try to prove foods are unhealthy using properties utterly unrelated to their value as foods.  You can make anything sound gross if you want to.

Did you know that salt is the same chemical we use to defrost sidewalks?!?!

Did you know that water is a major component in pig urine?!?!

Did you know that bread is made of wheat that has been ground into a powder and artificially reconstituted into a loaf shape using a fungus?!?!

Did u know that oxygen is what Hitler used to breathe?????

Bless all this

I think, after failing with a few different prescription medications, I finally found something that helps my anxiety.  There’s this drink stuff that garrett’s family is really into, and they wanted me to try it.  I was really doubtful because it sounded like snake oil, the way his mom talks about it.  Before being on it, I might have an episode and be miserable for weeks, pretty much unable to do anything.  And I would often have to back out on plans. That gradually started subsiding over the month.  It didn’t feel unnatural, or like I wasn’t myself.  I almost didn’t notice, until at the end of the month garrett mentioned that he hadn’t seen me have an anxiety attack for a while, and I realized he was right.  Occassionally i would have a sort of bad afternoon, but it wasn’t terrible and it was gone by the next morning.  After that experience, I decided to get on board with the business side of it, but I’m afraid that people will assume I’m just talking about because I’m trying to sell it, especially since it does help with a lot of stuff.  

Hey, whatever works! I’m happy you found something that works for you! It feels weird at first, doesn’t it?

thanks! and yeah a little bit.  right now i’m just trying to figure out the business side of it.  I mean I’m surrounded by people that are just ecstatic about it, and have had great experiences with it. but what am i supposed to say to people? “Hey this weird pink drink stuff will lower your blood pressure, help your blood sugar, help your anxiety, make losing weight a lot easier, and help with a bunch of other chronic illness stuff. it’s legit i swear. wait, why are you walking away? wait why are you flipping me off?”
