"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

The Norwegian Pokémon theme is too weird. Sit down and follow along.
now I will go on an adventure
and I have received my call
to catch some weird animals
that live inside a ball
travel over land and beach
on an eternal hunt
to show Pokémon how to use their power
Pokémon, catch them all, for you and me
that is what I need
Pokémon, my best friends,
who on our earth we love so
Pokémon, catch them all, I am so tired
strength will show the way
you give me and I give you Pokémon
catch them all now, catch them all NOOO-OOOOOW
Some weird animals that live inside a ball. An unclouded view of things.

My friend Sam is building something really cool.
Going to start talking about what I’m working on: Comique.
It’s a tiny comics app where the comics are made for your phone. It’s a platform that’s been designed for indie comic artists to sell their work through: artists decide the price of their work, they receive 60% of all net (so everything after Apple’s fees), and they keep all rights to their work. And there’s a lot of phones out there!
Know that I am not joking when I say that my favourite performance of one of my favourite tracks was filmed at Sesame Street.
The floor is pizza!
Robert Frost bent down and picked up a handful of fallen autumn leaves, which in New England are money. “It IS a job, and I got paid today,” he said.Is It Work?, by Patricia Lockwood. Maybe, just maybe, one of my favourite things ever written.

Milk clouding my tea.
The Norwegian version of Nutella comes in the traditional tub, but for your general on-the-go Nugatti cravings you can also buy it in a convenient tube. Which lets you conveniently shape your chocolate in small nuggets. Should I even remark on the hole being star-shaped?
When your business is goopy brown food, maybe try not to package it as a poop tube?
