Who are these people that have time for a job, social life, and actual healthy meals? With a nutrition segment on seemingly every talk show and entire networks devoted to food, it can sometimes seem like we've never left our mother's house and her constant admonitions to "eat your vegetables!". And okay, she was right. But things were a lot easier when she was feeding them to us. Being an adult requires buying these things, planning your meals for the week so they don't go bad, and (worst of all) actually cooking them. Which is why we turn to takeout, let's face it. But might just be the thing that slowly replaces it - or at least relegates it to the occasional guilty pleasure it should be. We've all heard of those meal deliveries that show

Today, 800,000 Hong Kongers marched through the city in a demonstration commemorating their six months of protests. Thanks to in last month's election, today's march had an official police permit -- the first such permit issued since August. The protest was organized by the nonviolent umbrella group The Civil Human Rights Front (slogan: "You Can't Kill Us All"), and in online forums, protesters were promising direct action tomorrow if the Beijing-loyal administrator Carrie Lam does not respond to it. "No matter how we express our views, through peacefully marching, through civilised elections, the government won't listen," said a 50-year-old protester, who gave his surname Wong. "It only follows orders from the Chinese Communist Party.". "I

Kentucky's Peoples Rural Telephone Cooperative came out of a local electrification co-op set up during the New Deal, and in 1949 it was expanded into a telephone co-op with more federal infrastructure money. Today, the PRTC has used Obama FCC funding to expand into public broadband delivery, wiring up all of Jackson and Owsley Counties, some of the poorest places in America, using a mule called "Old Bub" to haul fiber through inaccessible mountain passes and other extremely isolated places. Fiber buildout has created an economic miracle for the people served by the PRTC; working with the nonprofit Teleworks USA (which trains people for remote work, especially tech support and customer service), the coop has created high-paying, sustainable

Connor Krukosky's lifelong hobby was collecting and refurbishing superannuated computing equipment, which is surprisingly cheap provided you have a lot of space -- Krukosky scored things like keypunch machines for a mere $7 (though he had to drive 1,000 miles roundtrip to get it home). In 2016, Krukosky, then 18, bought a 1,500lb IBM z890 mainframe from a university and brought it home (it took two trips, one with a trailer), and then got it into his basement (with help from his dad, who used a rototiller to excavate a larger basement entrance!).

The Ramones were never a happy family. They never gave much of a crap for the political idealism that would come to be associated with the sound that they defined, either. This is especially of guitarist Johnny Ramone, a notorious conservative who celebrated the bands' induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by declaring, ".". That was in 2002, but frankly, no one was surprised. Because the Ramones had already been singing about Johnny's brand of conservatism for more than 20 years at that point. Joey Ramone wrote the lyrics to "" after his then-girlfriend, Linda Daniele, cheated on him with Johnny. This is relevant not only because of my personal passion for weird underground rock trivia. But also because Linda Daniele went on to marry

SCAN (Scientific Content Analysis) is a lie-detecting method invented by Avinoam Sapir, a former Israeli spook turned polygraph examiner that involves picking out small textual details from writing samples to determine when someone is lying. Sapir has used his method to determine the veracity of the Book of Genesis, and to conclude that Anita Hill might be a secret lesbian and that James Comey was likely sexually assaulted as a child. SCAN has no empirical support, and is so outlandish that it has hardly been studied by third parties at all. However, each time it was studied, it was found to perform no better than chance. For example, an Obama-era deep dive into investigation methods, the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group, which drew

Oh look. A bunch of American police cadets giving a Nazi salute. Whom ever could have seen this coming? From the :. Several West Virginia state employees have been suspended after a photo emerged depicting a training class of roughly 30 correctional officers performing a Nazi salute.
