"I found that one quarter pound hamburger requires over 660 gallons of water to produce. Here I’ve been taking these short showers trying to save water, to find out just eating one hamburger is equivalent to showering 2 entire months."

I’m sure clearing the brazilian rainforests for soy (common vegan staple) has had 0 impact on the environment though :/

I apologize if you’re being sarcastic (in which case haha, hilarious, well done) but just so we’re clear:

“About 85 percent of the world’s soybean crop is processed into meal and vegetable oil, and virtually all of that meal is used in animal feed

Some two percent of the soybean meal is further processed into soy flours and proteins for food use… Approximately six percent of soybeans are used directly as human food, mostly in Asia.”

mALEFISHIENT, MARK

ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.

(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)

The International Business Times reported last September that, according to the New York City Economic Development Corporation, NYFW pulls in about $850 million each year for the city. That’s almost double what the Super Bowl made for the city when MetLife Stadium hosted the game this past February.

The Economics of Fashion Week

Another glaring reason why I will wish a fiery death upon those who consider fashion anything less than a significant industry.

The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)

The hebrew title for Game of Thrones is actually literally translated to Games of the Throne. Because if we translated the english title literally, it would be the same as the Hebrew name for Musical Chairs.
