how do radio stations even have enough christmas music to last until christmas without repeating every song like six hundred times

they dont

And yet I almost could with even my insignificant collection. I have 1.7 days of Christmas music in my home library. Almost 41 hours. With just a little rationing I could go from the day after Thanksgiving to Dec. 18th without repeating a song. But I love Christmas. So I listen to every song I like… thrice.

Stores really ought to be able to go the full 30(ish) day season without playing the same song twice (at least if you count difference arrangement with different artist as different), but they’re lazy.

"In the Annotated Pratchett, the entry for Night Watch outlines parallels with Les Miserables, and a point is brought up which states:

“Javert, the policeman in LM, is concerned only with justice, which he defines as the punishment of the guilty. Vimes, the policeman in NW, is equally obsessed by justice, but he defines it as the protection of the innocent.”, which I think is an interesting distinction and which seems to be relevant now."

I just wanted to eat breakfast ;(

welp now we know the distinction between the two

Have….have people…not eaten shredded wheat before? The regular sized ones?

You put it in a bowl and pour milk on it (with sugar + cinnamon if you’re not some lunatic fiber satan who just wants to eat wheat strings) and let it soak a bit before breaking it up and eating bite sized portions with your spoon.

DO PEOPLE NOT KNOW THIS?!

NONE OF US KNEW THAT

I used to eat these all the time! I am a lunatic fiber satan, though. mmmm wheat strings.

you put milk on it and eat it. standard cereal practice. the idea of alarmingly large shredded wheat unnerving people is funny though

I’ve never seen a giant one before, though. Just the little ones. With frosting on them. And the fact that “fibre” is spelled Britishly suggests to me that they may no longer be for sale in US America, because who would put milk on a bale of hay and eat it what the fuck is wrong with you people.

I almost never eat cold cereal. However, I usually have a box of Shredded Wheat around for breakfast emergencies.

My method of consumption is by dunking one end in a cup of milk. Soggy cereal is loathsome to me so I prefer this to the bite size version that gets milk poured over it.

Historical note: the big pillows were the original form and bite sized came along later. Much later. Shredded wheat was first sold in Denver, Colorado in 1893.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to use their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



There’s a documentary about this on Netflix called Pink Ribbons, Inc. if anyone’s interested.

I’ve been waiting for this gifset my whole life.

So I’m assuming at least 95% of tumblr is hearing this whole scene perfectly in their head, right?

the idea of people not hearing this in their head is inconceivable

I think you mean, “it would be absolutely, totally, and in all other ways inconceivable.”

The light was not good inside. (not much better outside)
Mishalak’s Colorado Style Red Cabbage
200 g (half a large) onion vegetable oil 250-300 g coarsely cut apple (five little ones picked from a backyard tree) 60 ml (about ¼ cup) apple cider vinegar 30 ml (about 2 tablespoons) water 20 g brown sugar 1½ teaspoons caraway seed, lightly crushed 500-600 g shredded red cabbage salt
Dice the onion fine (not a mince). Cut up the apples. Put a sauce pan to heat on medium-high until drop of water sizzles away quickly. Put in a good solid slug of oil, enough to just coat the bottom of the pan. Brown the onion until quite brown, but not cooked to the point of being indistiguishable from coffee beans. Add the apple to the pan with a little more oil and cook until you think them the right softness. I like them fully cooked with a bit of chew left rather than so soft the eater might think he is eating vegtable custard. Remove from the pan and deglaze the fond (brown stuff) with the water and half the vinegar. Add the brown sugar and the caraway seed and once the mixture is hot add the cabbage. Stir and cook until quite tender, in my opinion, adding the second half of the vinegar towards the end so there is still some bite. Mix with your apple and onion and serve now or a bit later when the flavors really mix. Salt to taste. Heck, sometimes I even like a little mustard with my Colorado Style Red Cabbage.
