According to a study from the University of Washington, the rift between healthy grub and junk food is wider than it’s ever been. Researchers were able to buy 2,000 calories of junk food for $3.52 — that’s an entire day’s caloric intake — where nutritious foods cost them a whopping $36 for the same 2,000 calories.
has science gone too far
Those two plants are both in the nightshade family (Solanum), so they usually have compatible tissues.
You can do this at home with a razor, electrical tape, a potato plant, and a tomato plant. It works best with a cherry tomato on top, and it saves a lot of space.
How to make a pomato / tomoffel:
1. Take an 25 cm or taller tomato
2. Take an 25 cm or higher potato
3. Make a wound 1/3 into the stem of the tomato with a razor
4. Make a would 1/3 into the stem of the potato with a razor
5. Press wounds together and seal with a flexible waterproof tape
6. Wait until there is a bulge in the tape and new growth before cutting off the root ball of the tomato and the top growth of the potato
7. Enjoy potatoes in the bottom and tomatoes on the top. It’s the mullet of the plant world.
Plants are so cool. I wish I could be a plant.
All right, this is the second one of these chimera posts I’ve seen and I’m starting to believe they might actually be a thing, which is fuckin’ bonkers.
My objection to fundamentalism is not that they are fundamentalists but that essentially they want me to be a fundamentalist, too. Now, they may say that I believe evolution is true and I want everyone to believe that evolution is true. But I don’t want everyone to believe that evolution is true, I want them to study what we say about evolution and to decide for themselves. Fundamentalists say they want to treat creationism on an equal basis. But they can’t. It’s not a science. You can teach creationism in churches and in courses on religion. They would be horrified if I were to suggest that in churches they should teach secular humanism as an alternate way of looking at the universe or evolution as an alternate way of considering how life may have started. In the church they teach only what they believe, and rightly so, I suppose. But on the other hand, in schools, in science courses, we’ve got to teach what scientists think is the way the universe works.
