Advice, Brains, and Coca-Cola: Peanut butter spaceorphan18: sulkingheals: downtroddendeity: jacemp3: monkeysaysficus: audrey-hepbae: catchymemes: 10 tricks you didn’t know you could do with your food. By Blossom The internet went from showing food recipe videos to alchemy in less than a decade. There’s going to be a quick video on how to make the philosopher’s stone from tomato sauce next week.  I WANNA DRINK THE TRANSPARENT SODA leave milk out unrefrigerated in your house for 2 days Some days ago, my sibling sent me this video out of the desperate hope I could provide the catharsis of seeing it torn to pieces. It has now been coming on 72 hours, and only now have I recovered enough to be able to do much of anything but scream, “WHAT?!” and “NO!” at the screen. We had a long discussion about what in the twelve hells this video even is. A surreal, dadaist parody so obscure that our brains aren’t operating on enough levels to comprehend it? The Instagram lifehack equivalent of those terrifying procedurally-generated animated Youtube videos that farm ad revenue by playing millions of times to babies whose parents left the iPad on autoplay? A coded message designed to activate the combat programming of brainwashed cyborg sleeper agents? A post that slipped through a wormhole from an alternate dimension where the laws of reality are different? An emanation of a vast and alien chaos god? I cannot bring myself to confront the claims in this video in the order they are put forth without losing my will to live after the first one, so I will start with the least crazy and work my way up. Bananas to ripen things: More or less true. You’ll sometimes see advice to cooks to store underripe fruit in a paper bag with one piece of overripe (but not rotten) fruit to ripen it more quickly.Misrepresentations: It will probably take longer than overnight to ripen something as green as some of those tomatoes, and it doesn’t have to be a banana. Coca-cola and milk: The coke is more acidic than the milk and curdles it, resulting in solid globs of milk protein which settle out. The brown dye in the coke sticks to the milk protein globs, leaving the excess liquid more or less clear.Misrepresentations: The video has been enormously sped up, which the editing does not make clear; the reaction takes hours. Ketchup to clean metal: To my mild surprise, this is actually a thing (though you could just make a paste out of salt, flour, and vinegar and scrub with that and not get ketchup stains on everything)…Misrepresentations: …for cleaning copper and bronze. Which the jug shown in the video is not. The acid in the ketchup might take some of the tarnish off, say, aluminum, but at that point you might as well just use vinegar. Sparkling water omelet: Omelet souffles are a thing.Misrepresentations: You… literally do not need the sparkling water… you can just beat the eggs until they’re fluffy… “Warm water clears wax from fruits!”: This is a mysterious and arcane procedure called “washing.”Misrepresentations: I don’t know what the hell they even did to the video on this sequence but as a person who has washed many apples in warm water, it does not look like that and the thin layer of edible wax applied to make them look good in the grocery store does not come off that easily. Sprite to clean earrings: Again, this will take tarnish off some metals just due to the acid, but…Misrepresentations: DO YOU WANT GROSS STICKY EARRINGS AND EAR INFECTIONS? JUST USE VINEGAR WATER. Also, “dirt” is not a kind of molecule. (Incidentally, if the earrings are silver, there is a vastly better method that actually reverses the tarnish instead of removing it.) Insta-freeze bottle: This is a real thing…Misrepresentation: …which absolutely will not happen if you follow their instructions, because a) they neglect to mention an important caveat (the water needs to be purified/distilled) and b) 5 minutes is not long enough for a water bottle to supercool. If you google any of the myriad videos and articles of people doing this trick, you’ll see numbers like “3 hours in the freezer” or “40 minutes in a salted ice bath.” There is video of the trick working. Either that footage was taken from someone else, or they knew how to do it, did it, and then deliberately lied about the time for no apparent reason. Putting a broken plate in milk for two days magically fixes it: To my immense surprise, they didn’t make this one up; the idea is that the milk protein casein can form into a plastic at high temperatures and bind to the ceramic. Googling it turned up some hobbyist potters commenting that they’d used it to salvage things that had cracked slightly in the kiln.Misrepresentations: Once again, they’ve misrepresented the method: everything I saw talking about how to do it said to boil the milk and then soak for an hour, not leave it out for two days like an offering to the pixies. And most of what I saw reported about it also said it only really works on hairline cracks, not full breaks, and doesn’t hold up long-term because the real structural damage isn’t repaired. And may leave a faint and persistent odor of boiled milk. Just use superglue. “Reveal the genetic memory of the honeycomb”: This is the kind of gibberish predicated on so many nonsensical assumptions that unpacking it would be more trouble than it’s worth. Plus, well, I can barely see anything with the low video quality, but what I can see of the vague blur doesn’t look much like a honeycomb in the first place. Suffice to say: “Honey looks like a honeycomb” isn’t even in the ballpark of what’s generally meant by “genetic memory,” what’s generally meant by “genetic memory” is also complete hooey, and fluid dynamics is weird and swirling a thick, viscous, water-soluble liquid with a layer of water on top is going to do weird things. But at least that I could potentially attribute to ignorance rather than deliberate intent to deceive, unlike… Hot coals and peanut butter This is the reason it’s taken me this long to post this. Every time I think about it my soul starts to leave my body. It’s such a mind-boggling level of bullshit that every time I’ve tried to put words around an explanation I’m quickly reduced to staring at the screen and mouthing “No” to myself in a voice of quiet despair, because I can’t even figure out where to start. Well, okay, I guess I might as well start by saying I think their… let’s say inspiration on this was articles about scientists who made diamonds out of peanut butter and carbon dioxide. …With a press that’s designed to recreate the conditions of the earth’s mantle, and which is prone to exploding. So, you know, not something you can do in your kitchen. Unless you have one hell of a kitchen. You can see the direct links to this in the nonsensical claim that this “works” because peanut butter contains carbon dioxide. (It doesn’t, particularly. It’s crushed peanuts mixed with oil. You know what would have a lot of carbon dioxide? The fire you pulled that glowing lump of charcoal out of.) It also mentions “pressure” when no particular pressure is involved, presumably because we’ve all heard about turning coal into diamond under heat and pressure. Chemically speaking, there’s very little to make that crystal out of except carbon, unless you want to posit a mass migration of all the sugar molecules in the peanut butter to the center of the coal. And “carbon crystal” = “diamond,” and do you think if it was that easy to make diamonds they’d be that expensive? I will guarantee you that crystal is a lump of quartz they covered in black crud and then peanut butter to pretend it was the charcoal. But, of course, all of that is irrelevant, because by reblogging this at all, even to performatively despair that the internet does not seem to have come all that far since the days of Infinite Chocolate, I’m playing into their hands. Lifehack clickbait has done this forever- they deliberately seed in wrong or awful advice because people will share that to say how stupid/wrong it is. They led with complete insanity to get attention, and I gave them eyeballs on the video watching this, and I’ll be giving them more from writing this. Maybe I’ll stick to the chaos god theory. It’s less depressing. @ohnofixit I apologize for being stupid enough to believe that video so reblogging the breakdown of why it was wrong. Why you shouldn’t believe everything on the internet.

I happened to be in a location that got the best of both worlds, as we bath had the spritzers and were encouraged to go on spray-runs throughout the day, lest everyone's nostrils not be assaulted with the odor within a five-store radius. I worked for the Ritz Carlton for a few years. In my orientation, the HR rep told everyone that each employee has a special allowance of $1,500 to make sure they can help the guests feel like their stay would be memorable. There was a story about a guest who last his Rolex and asked the front desk if they had seen it or one of the maids took it and complained a lot. When the guest finally left, the guy from the front desk went out and purchased the guest a new Rolex and was reimbursed fully by the Ritz.

Community, Fall, and Fire: School Evacuates Over "Strange Odor" Which Turned Out To Be Pumpkin Spice Air Freshener @balleralert timore.com School Evacuates Over "Strange Odor" Which Turned Out To Be Pumpkin Spice Air Freshener - blogged by @Its_sharr ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's finally fall which means it's "pumpkin spice on everything season.” Unfortunately for one Baltimore high school, the smell of pumpkin spice isn't as pleasant as you would think. During classes on Thursday, students at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School started to smell a "strange odor" and began feeling ill. Some students even began coughing and having trouble breathing due to the strange smell. Not knowing exactly where the smell was coming from, students and faculty evacuated the building as a precaution. The fire department was then called to investigate the scene. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Emergency medical technicians evaluated several staff members and students, some of whom were treated on the scene," the school said in a statement. "Five members of our community were transported to area hospitals as a precautionary measure." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cristo Rey Jesuit High President Bill Heiser added that at first, some thought the smell was coming from a burned out lightbulb. He continued, "it was a smell that they certainly weren't used to. It appeared to be getting stronger." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Baltimore Fire Chief Roman Clark, the odor wasn't hazardous at all. In fact, the "strange smell" was coming from a pumpkin spice air freshener. Chief Clark told NBC affiliate WBAL, "it was this plug-in air freshener that basically puts out the odor every so many seconds, and it's pumpkin spice." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm sure this incident has ruined "pumpkin spice flavored" everything for these high school students for the rest of the season.

Ali, Dating, and Facebook: DID YOU KNOW? GINGER KILLS CANCER IG/FB HOLISTIC ALI A NEW STUDY REVEALS GINGER CONTAINS A PUNGENT COMPOUND THAT COULD BE UP TO 10,000 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN CONVENTIONAL CHEMOTHERAPY INTARGETINGTHE CANCER STEM CELLS AT THE ROOT OF CANCER MALIGNANCY Follow ➡️ @holisticali 🔴Take Ginger tea or a teaspoon of the powder daily! 🔴 Ginger is listed 13th on the most impressive antioxidant list with an ORAC score of 28,811. A variety of volatile oils enhance the flavor and odor of ginger such as gingerols, shogaols, and zingerone. These oils exhibit properties that are anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. (1) These agents are capable of inhibiting carcinogenesis and can even destroy current cancer cells already present in the human body. (2, 3, 4) The Qur’an mentions ginger as one of the drinks of Paradise. The modern name, “ginger,” comes from the Arabic root, “zindshebil,” and as centuries have passed, we have discovered the amazing and miraculous healing properties ginger offers. The use of ginger by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) as well as the many medical discoveries dating back to ancient times justifiably places ginger in the noble ranks of “heavenly herbs.” 'Zanjabeel', زنجبيل in Arabic, is the bitter, sweet and warming flavour of ginger - a Quranic reference to Heavenly drinks and hardcore health improvement. Zanjabeel, is said to have been derived from the Sanskrit word of Sringeber, and is a very old medicinal plant that grows underground. Botanically, it is known as zingiber officinale.

Memes, 🤖, and Com: Nisso? pelo cheiro de um homem do que pela Sua aparencia /ACREDITANIssooFICIAL Ooi @ACREDITANISSO @AcreditaNisso? O cheiro corporal dos homens é decisivo para seduzir uma mulher, q através do olfato consegue identificar aqueles q são biologicamente compatíveis, revelou uma investigadora norte-americana. Rachel Herz é professora da Universidade de Brown e, nos últimos 17 anos, dedicou-se a estudar os mecanismos do olfato. Esteve em Lisboa esta quinta-feira e foi uma das oradoras convidadas da conferência "As regras da Atração" na Culturgest. "O odor corporal tem um grande efeito para as mulheres, q se sentem sexualmente atraídas por determinados cheiros. A mulher consegue reconhecer quem é biologicamente compatível e qd um homem cheira "mal" cria-se uma barreira q não permite intimidade", explicou a investigadora. A explicação prende-se com a reprodução: "As mulheres são muito seletivas na hora de escolher o parceiro e futuro pai dos filhos. E por isso procuram o homem mais saudável". Ao q parece, através do olfato as mulheres conseguem perceber qual é a escolha acertada. Lembrando q atualmente os homens conseguem "esconder" os seus cheiros corporais com recurso a perfumes, Rachel Herz explica q depois de apaixonadas as mulheres passam a aceitar os cheiros, mesmo q desagradáveis. Outra das novidades apresentada por Rachel Herz prende-se com o fato de os homens gays preferirem o cheiro dos outros gays ao dos homens heterossexuais assim como estes tb repudiarem o cheiro dos gays, sem nunca saber à partida qual a orientação sexual do cheiro q estão a sentir. A conferência "As regras da atração", q termina sexta-feira, pretende fazer um ponto da situação sobre as relações na sociedade atual. "É obvio q não existem regras da atracção definidas. O q há é um conjunto de circunstâncias q fazem com q hoje se verifique um conjunto de comportamentos", lembrou Rui Andrade, comissário da conferência q vai abordar ainda temas como o desejo sexual feminino, as atrações entre prostitutas e clientes ou os brinquedos sexuais.

Bad, Beautiful, and Bodies : My heart breaks for this father Read his story below & swipe left This is the father of the 2 beautiful 9 month old twin children I posted up earlier who were killed in the sarin gas attack in Syria. Here he is burying his twins, his wife, and the rest of his family who were all killed. To donate to help send gas masks to Syria visit: www.GasMasks4Syria.com Or go to the link in my bio . Article from Associated Press: The father cradled his 9-month-old twins, Aya and Ahmed, each in an arm. He stroked their hair and choked back tears, mumbling, "Say goodbye, baby, say goodbye" to their lifeless bodies. . Abdel Hameed Alyousef lost his two children, his wife and other relatives in the suspected chemical attack Tuesday in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun that killed at least 72 people. In footage shared with The Associated Press, Alyousef sits in the front seat of a van with the twin, his eyes red as he asks his cousin Alaa to video his farewell to them. . When the airstrike took place, "I was right beside them and I carried them outside the house with their mother,"Alyousef, a 29-year-old shopowner, told the AP. "They were conscious at first, but 10 minutes later we could smell the odor." The twins and his wife, Dalal Ahmed, fell sick. . He brought them to paramedics and, thinking they would be OK, went to look for the rest of his family. He found the bodies of two of his brothers, two nephews and a niece, as well as neighbors and friends. "I couldn't save anyone, they're all dead now," he said. Only later was he told his children and wife had died. . "Abdel Hameed is in very bad shape," his cousin Alaa said. He's being treated for exposure to the toxin. "But he's especially broken down over his massive loss."
