Schrader says he was more than a little Travis Bickle-like in the head when he wrote “Taxi Driver,” while Hooper was just trying to give horror fans what they like.
Once, I woke up in the middle of the night and decided to check on him. He was sitting up in his crib muttering in a language I couldn’t understand (thanks to eight years of Catholic school, I was able to make out a few words in Latin). Then, when he caught me watching him he exclaimed, “Human mother, I am glad you are here, I need milk from your breasts.”
“It wasn’t until I started doing dishes that I realized men in my family don’t do dishes.
“At parties, I rarely saw Martins men helping out in the kitchen. Instead, our grandmothers, aunts and female cousins (all Portuguese and Argentine immigrants) would cook and serve the meal, and afterward the men would stack their plates near the sink like a Jenga tower before returning to the table, where they would finish their wine and pick their teeth as the women cleaned up.”
Me on Enterprise Cloud News: “Enterprises using Office 365 will want to hold off upgrading iPhones and iPads to the latest, greatest operating system version, as the Mail app on iOS 11 is incompatible with Office 365, as well as Exchange Server 2016 and Outlook.com.”
Phil Edwards at Vox presents a video that “serves as a condensed history of the Cold War’s fallout shelter fad, from the kookily cheerful propaganda videos to the hobbled federal agencies that tried to administer civil defense.”
Julia Belluz at Vox: “… even vacuuming your house or walking on your lunch hour for a solid 30 minutes [per day] can help avert an early death and chronic disease.”
I laughed so hard at this I nearly shit myself, which is ironic.
Geraldine DeRuiter, writing at The Everywhereist:
For those unfamiliar with this “food” product, Soylent is a high-protein drink designed to appeal to lifehackers, dieters, and doomsday cult members who are maybe a little shy and don’t want to come out of their bunker for communal meals. It has an incredibly long shelf-life, and provides you nutrition without all the pesky side-effects that food usually has, like chewing, tasting like something, and being an excuse for human interaction.
As a bonus, it also apparently gives you raging diarrhea, but I’m getting ahead of myself.
Because I’m a blogger, and continually told that my life has relatively little value, my body becomes fair game for “creating content”. In the past I’ve tried Paleo, quit sugar for a month, and engaged in a series of workouts designed for double-jointed 19-year-olds who were probably genetically engineered in a lab inside Lululemon’s headquarters.
The point is, since I’m a woman who writes things on the internet, I’m continually told by trolls to “Drink bleach and die.” So I thought, Why don’t I drink something that is marginally__ better than bleach and instead of dying, I’ll write about it? Thanks for the idea, trolls! I hope you take a moment from your non-stop rage masturbation to reflect on how much I appreciate you.
SO … WHAT IS IT, ANYWAY?
It’s a drinkable meal replacement created by computer developers with absolutely zero background in nutrition or culinary sciences. According to the company’s own website, this was the moment of inspiration that led the founders to create Soylent:
Living off a diet of frozen corn dogs and ramen, they grew frustrated with the effort and cost associated with purchasing, preparing, and consuming food that was neither healthy nor enjoyable.
Now, you can understand why I was slightly concerned about ingesting something developed by guys who felt that the prep work for corn dogs and ramen was too much for them. Also, please explain to me how much time and effort is possibly spent purchasing those food items. You can literally buy them at a gas station.
I like Soylent as an occasional thing. I do not suffer any of the *koff* “discomfort” that The Everywhereist experiences.

Some cybercrooks say going after hospitals goes too far. Others say ransomware, by spreading attacks broadly, invite a crackdown. Still others sneer at ransomware as lacking finesse. And even criminals who are fine with ransomware say don’t mess with Russia.
Bra with a USB adapter to charge it. Looks like an app too, which probably means Bluetooth wireless. Ha!
Sébastien Bras, 46, who runs the Le Suquet restaurant in Laguiole, says he loves his work but can’t stand the pressure that he might be judged at any time.
Lot to think about here.
