fucking rich white people laughing at how poverty is some diet they should try

not only is this fucking disgusting bc they’re laughing about ppl who can not afford food like haha it’s fine but it’s also utter bullshit fasting myths that I used to believe when I seriously struggled with my eating disorder.

now $133 dollars can’t even buy 2 weeks of groceries - which means ppl would have to be scrimping and saving to maybe afford one small meal a day - if that. 

If you don’t eat for 12 hours your metabolic rate drops 40 percent and goes into storage mode bc it’s sensing famine. 

now lets talk about how the foods that ppl on this budget can usually afford - cheap not exactly healthy foods. even if a person used all that money to buy expensive health food (which would maybe afford them a week at most of meals) they’d still be storing all of it due to their metabolism being out of whack. 

so all in all they’d more likely than not gain weight and ppl would attack them with for being fat and lazy and rant about the “obesity epidemic”

Andrea Tantaros is not only being a massive classist asshole but contributing to the uneducated and dangerous ideas that help fuel eating disorders.

Those presenters don’t even need any money for food, because they should only be allowed to eat shit.

EAT THE RICH

The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here

I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”

Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.

The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.

Read more at Scientific American, or the original study.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place

FINALLY AN EXPLANATION

Blossom was all about the do-good, American Heroes.

Buttercup loved the edgy heroes with dark pasts and complex morals.

Bubbles knew Japanese well enough to read and understand comic books from Japan intended for her age group. That’s actually very impressive, but then again, this is the girl who can speak squirrel.

I think you mean “Bubbles was a fucking weeb”

Bubbles was a fucking weeb

ONE TWEET. THIS FIT IN ONE TWEET. IF YOU FUCK IT UP YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE.

So much of this. 

An apology is NOT “I’m sorry BUT here’s why I’m totally in the right and think I did nothing wrong.”
