See this is what happens when 95% of the entries into a contest like this are joke flavors like “brony cum” or “parental disappointment” or “like this flavor or I punch a baby”

Oh god the cappuccino one was awful, where the hell is the mango salsa?

Some people think that a place can save them. Like if they could just be somewhere else, their lives would be totally different. They could finally be the people they always wanted to be. But to me, a place is just a place. If you really want things to change, you can make them change no matter where you are.

Quinoa may deliver a complete protein—all of the amino acids you require—in a compact package, but rice and beans together actually do better. And like goji berries, blueberries and strawberries are packed with phytochemicals. The only problem is that lacking an exotic back story, food marketers can’t wring as exorbitant a markup from these staples: The domestic blueberry, for example, is periodically (and justifiably) marketed as a superfood, and in 2012, products featuring blueberries as a primary ingredient saw their sales nearly quadruple. But they only raked in $3.5 million—less than 2 percent of açaí-based product sales.

Tom Philpott, "Are Quinoa, Chia Seeds, and other ‘Superfoods’ a Scam?" (from Mother Jones)

Also worth highlighting is this section:

Worse than superfoods’ origin myths, though, are their effects on the people in their native regions. In 2009, at the height of the açaí berry hype, Bloomberg News reported that the fruit’s wholesale price had jumped 60-fold since the early 2000s, pricing the Amazonian villagers who rely on it out of the market. In the Andes, where quinoa has been cultivated since the time of the Incas, price spikes have turned a one-time staple into a luxury, and quinoa monocrops are crowding out the more sustainable traditional methods.” (emphasis mine)

So not only are the markets for “superfoods” putting the foods out of reach of the people who relied on them as a dietary staple, but there are foods easily accessible to us that deliver all the nutrition at a fraction of the cost, both to our grocery bill and to the social/environmental toll.

I love Larsa’s character development in FFXII. He goes from ‘my brother is a remarkable man’ to ‘you know my brother would nuke your town’ all within the first half of the game.

WHAT DID THEY DO?!

Why must the writers torture us? D8

But I bet they cuddled.

I remember I was cuddling at that age. XD

A 450-ish word drabble about what might have happened between Jude and Connor in the tent. Jonnor. Possibly part of a series of what-could-have-happened-in-the-tent oneshots.

It’s 3:40am, I didn’t proof-read because I’m not sure my brain is anything but a pile of tired mush right now. But I made an attempt.

Omg thank you for writing this. I haven’t even seen the episode yet, but I will think of this fic when I do.
