My reactions to Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” in realtime.

00:30 - So she’s appropriating that whole kawaii Lolita fashion thing. I can see how the in-group could be annoyed but I don’t know if that’s necessarily racist.

00:59 - She’s definitely doing a weird imitation of how she thinks Japanese girls talk. 

1:50 - Sushi and sake? Damn, she’s seriously just doing anything and everything Japanese, without regard to whether or not its kawaii. The candy shop was on-theme. This is just… weird. And definitely racist.

The Stoners’ Paradise of Humboldt County Is Dreading Weed Legalization
The economy of the rural Northern Californian region is dominated by marijuana, and many growers are worried that when pot becomes legal, prices will plummet and they’ll lose their livelihoods.

This article missed out on a key point about how the Humboldt black market mob is murdering peoples’ dogs in order to “protect our economy.” 
That’s not to mention how the only people making money in this county are hiring migratory meth users to tend to their product, and paying them next to nothing. 
Legalize it, regulate it, and prosecute the hell out of the criminals.

Probably the greatest machine man has ever created

That’s a plough-folder. I operated one of these for years. When outfitted with a machine vision system they can do things more impressive than paper airplanes. 
Also, that’s a mail inserter in the back. Those don’t have quite the same potential for fun. I operated those as well.

This is a Baked Potato Pizza from Pizza Luce. It is covered in mashed potatoes, broccoli, bacon, and tomatoes, and it comes with a side of sour cream and green onions.
You can only get it in Minnesota.
It gives me wistful longing.

I only just started watching True Detective a few days ago. Within the first episode I realized Matthew McConaughey’s character reminds me an awful lot of myself, and that Woody Harrelson’s advice to keep that kind of stuff to himself is something I could probably stand to put into practice more often.
