"Yeah I’ve been watching these Eddie Murphy videos from the 1980s, from when he was still doing standup.
They are still really funny. You know he jokes mostly about poop etc. That kind of stuff doesn’t age."
Thank god for non-current content.
"All ten hippos in the study were successfully castrated, though one died shortly afterward, following a complication from a unknown pre-existing condition. Over the next six months, the authors checked in with the zoos housing the hippos to see whether their behavior or interaction with other animals had changed. There were four cases where zoos wanted their hippos fixed to ease aggression between males; in all four, the problem seemed better. (One zoo, though, reported that castrated males were harassed more by females.)"

"Another study at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, is tracking quantities of methane and nitrogen produced by sheep, which provide a good comparison model for cows because they have similar digestive systems, but are less unruly. The sheep in the study are living in plastic tunnels where their methane production is monitored across a variety of diets."
"Cows belch more than they fart"
Cows emit a massive amount of methane through belching, with a lesser amount through flatulence. Statistics vary regarding how much methane the average dairy cow expels. Some experts say 100 liters to 200 liters a day (or about 26 gallons to about 53 gallons), while others say it’s up to 500 liters (about 132 gallons) a day. In any case, that’s a lot of methane, an amount comparable to the pollution produced by a car in a day.http://science.howstuffworks.com/zoology/methane-cow.htm
- I wonder how they measured that
How to: measure a baby (length)
• A baby (preferably a grand child)
• A wall
• A pencil
• A book
• A measuring tape
• An eraser
step 1: gently place the baby on the floor, so that its head touches the wall
step 2: stare at it to make it stop wiggle.
step 3: once it does: quickly place a book at the feet, and -with the pencil- draw a line on the floor along the book edge
step 4: remove the baby from the floor
step 5: measure the space between the wall and the pencil mark. this is the length of your (grand)child.
erase the pencil mark. Update from the source: don’t remove the pencil mark because next month you can measure again, and see if the child has grown.
• try dressing up the baby in a funny hat (make sure to deduct the thickness of the hat from the measurement)
• or an outfit with rockets
"Unfortunately, when there is very little to do in a day, you get very little done."
The essential argument is: men like long hair, and what sane woman would ever want to do anything that decreases her capacity to please men?
The advantage of articles like this, pantomimic though they be, is that they make misogyny legible.
My own “game” hasn’t suffered at all from having short hair, and it’s a really good way of filtering out the douchecanoes. Neo-misogynists tend not to want to sleep with me, date me or wife me up however I wear my hair, because after five minutes of conversation it tends to transpire that I’m precisely the sort of mouthy, ambitious, slutty feminist banshee who haunts their nightmares, but if I keep my hair short we tend to waste less of each other’s time.
But if you want to meet men as equals, if you want to fill your life with amazing men and boys as lovers, as life-partners, as friends and colleagues who treat women and girls as human beings rather than a walking assemblage of “signs of fertility” – believe me, they are out there – then I wouldn’t start by changing your hair. I’d start by changing your politics, and surrounding yourself with people who want to change theirs, too.
