Watch this video from Cadillac. Note a few things (actor, white, rich guy, workaholic, typical cocky American, very unrealistic). This is not a parody video, they’re being completely serious.

Now watch Ford’s response.

I can’t explain it very well just please watch both of these videos okay Ford burns Cadillac so bad okay it’s so good.

"That’s the upside of giving a damn."

You better hope winter is coming, bitch. You’re gonna need it for that burn.

This is legendary.

Anyone who witnessed me watching that noxious Cadillac commercial when it aired (I think during the Super Bowl?) will attest to my nearly having flipped a table in either rage or disgust; the Ford response is perfection.

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.

There’s a new plant hybrid called ‘TomTato’ that grows both tomatoes and potatoes.

That’s not a real hybrid: it’s a graft! You would call it a “chimera.”

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.

Do you want to pretend you’re on a starship? By more than just engine sounds?

Then do I have the YouTube channel for you!

I use white noise videos a lot lately to drown out my dad’s snoring, but oh my god this is the best.


YouTube user ender4lyfe has made a number of starship ambience white noise videos, but unlike other starship white noise videos, the sound is not just limited to the sound of the engine or warp core. They have included a multitude of other sound effects to make you really feel like you’re right there on the starship, including opening doors, button bloops, and even conversations among the crew in the background! In the Voyager Warp Core one (which is the one in the thumbnail), you can hear B’Elanna and Tom arguing quietly in the background, and in Ten Forward, you can hear Keiko talking about her day. 

Included in the channel are:

  • TOS USS Enterprise Bridge 
  • TNG USS Enterprise-D Bridge (+ extended version which is an hour long)
  • TNG Ten Forward 
  • TNG USS Enterprise-D Engineering Warp Core
  • TNG Cargo Bay 
  • VOY USS Voyager Bridge 
  • VOY USS Voyager Engineering Warp Core
  • DS9 Infirmary 
  • DS9 Quark’s Bar (Busy Night)
  • DS9 Quark’s Bar (Slow Night)
  • DS9 Station OPS

Go forth and let your imagination soar, fellow officers (or foreign dignitaries, civilians, crew families, etc.)!

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.
A quarter century ago, Isaac Asimov nailed the science vs. dogma divide, with which we still struggle today. (via explore-blog)
