Today I went to the cup noodle factory (& museum) in Osaka, Japan. It’s quite far out of the city, but after I read that you get to make your own cup noodle for 300¥ (£1.70/$2.90), I just had to go there. You go through the whole process of decorating a cup, adding the dry noodles, soup powder & your choice of 4 dry ingredients (I did pork, onion, garlic & decorative ducks). Then the cup is all sealed up (you even get to operate the machine to seal and fill it) and you pop it into an inflatable bubble bag with a red cord to take home with you!

Scientists Successfully Implant Lungs into Fish

Scientists have successfully created a goldfish that is capable of breathing atmospheric air. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, researchers at the New South Wales Veterinary Institute implanted a pair of frog lungs into the fish, which survived out of water for 2 hours.

The lungs were connected to the respiratory surface that were naturally found in the gills. The fish was able to conduct gas exchange through the lungs instead of the gills, which allowed it to breath in a terrestrial environment. A very humid chamber was constructed for the goldfish so that it did not dehydrate.

SCIENCE ISN’T ABOUT WHY IT’S ABOUT WHY NOT

i don’t think you guys understand how important this is if we’re able to put lungs in fish it means we may be able to put gills in humans which means we’re one step closer to becoming mermaids

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

sorry, but i call bullshit (at least to the notion that michelle obama is the single source of this culinary hellscape). that crusty fried chicken sandwich in the top picture? i got served that shit in high school fifteen years ago, when michelle obama was an illinois senator’s wife. that ugly mess of ground “beef” and corn and mashed potatoes, with a single sad white roll? that shit’s so familiar i might as well be high-fiving it at a family reunion. our school lunches have been garbage for decades, ever since we let corporations enter the business of feeding schoolchildren on contract, when school lunches stopped being cooked at school and started being cooked in factories and freezer-bagged and microwaved on site. this shitty situation can’t be dropped entirely in michelle obama’s lap: she didn’t start sysco or aramark or maramont or any of the giant food conglomerates that serve up deep fried frozen faux food by the truckload into america’s schools, at a profit. why don’t we hold accountable giant corporations and industry lobbyists- like, i shit you not, the national potato council- who have fought against improving school lunch standards for decades?

michelle obama’s fighting an uphill battle because let’s face it, school districts across the nation are suffering and hemorrhaging money, and school lunches have always been a target of cutbacks. rather than spending money on healthy foods to cut calories and maximize nutrients- re the obama guidelines- schools just cut corners and serve less. their shitty substandard implementation of the guidelines does not mean that the concept of bringing healthier food into public schools is a failed one. 

and if you want to change school lunches, instead of complaining to michelle obama on twitter, you can support the local efforts of students, parents and teachers to improve their lunches, like the campaign going on in philadelphia right now. these schoolkids have organized to try and end the contract with their shitty corporate meal provider, and gather support for meals cooked in-school with better ingredients. i guarantee there are fights like this going on in more places than philly, and they could use your help.

13 years ago I remember we were literally served a single piece of cheese between two pieces of white bread and an apple with milk or juice. This was lunch we could purchase, the ONLY things we could purchase that day. Why? Because the lunch servers, monitors, and principal decided to punish the entire student body for a food fight that the popular kids did. When we told them who did so, they didn’t believe us (and by us I’m talking the nerd groups, the goth groups, the fringe and ‘troubled’ groups basically) . This isn’t Michelle Obama but local people of power like principals or whomever is control of food services for varying reasons.

Michelle merely set the standard for a healthy meal. She didn’t directly insert herself into your schools and force your cafeteria to serve you a shitty lunch! 

No lie these lunches do look a lot smaller than they used to be, but I honestly doubt it’s because of Michelle Obama. Like the person said above me, she merely gave a standard, it’s the school systems (more so them and possibly the big educational system) out here trying to give you two pieces of bread and a kiwi.

It depends on the school district too. Our elementary through junior highs get to choose between four main entrees as well as a serving of fruit or vegetables or even both if they want, as well as a milk. Two to three times a week there will be a third option that’s given in addition to the fruit and vegetable, such as teddy grahams, gogurt and occasionally cookies or cake.

Not to mention that the choices for the fruits and vegetables are required to have so many fresh options per week and at least one orange vegetable, green vegetable, legumes, etc. 

And as far as the main entree goes, the serving sizes have not changed since before the new regulations and in fact, some of them have gotten bigger to match the new carb and protein requirements. We literally put a third of a cup of peanut butter on our sandwiches. Not to mention all the bread items now have to be whole wheat. 

I can’t comment on high school but I know the junior high kids get to pick their sides and choose between the four main menu items or pizza, a chicken sandwich or cheeseburgers daily and if they don’t pick between the five or six side items offered, again, daily, that’s their own fault.

Reminder that Eddie Izzard is not cis male and openly identifies as trans, I see that getting erased and forgotten a lot.

Reminder that there’s a huge difference between transgendered and transvestite. He likes to wear dresses and heels and make up, he doesn’t identify as a woman.

Actor-comedian Eddie Izzard says being transgender is a gift

Eddie Izzard, coming out and f-m genderspazzing.

Eddie Izzard on Atheism, Transgender, and “The Invisible Bloke Upstairs”

Eddie Izzard actively uses the word transgender as an identifier for themselves. Transvestite is indeed part of their identity but it is very important not to erase their identity as transgender as well.

 Eddie Izzard does not identify “fully” as female but that does not change anything.

As if a switch had been turned, as if an eye had been blinked, as if some phantom force in the universe had made a move eons beyond our comprehension, suddenly, there was no giant, no monster, no thing called "Phantom" to be followed!

The line between science fiction and science fact is microscopically thin! You have witnessed the line being shaved even thinner! But is the phantom gone?
