Brilliant: Open Culture digs up the perfect Japanese word for our “guilt pile” of unread materials. Best approached with another untranslatable Eastern concept, the Chinese wu-wei.

The US Government:
We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government:
If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government:
And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government:
In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government:
If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government:
Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government:
And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government:
The parent who is working 16 hours a day

Diner Porn Needs Your Help!

Hello followers! We’ve been hinting at the potential for a Diner Porn road trip for sometime now, but guess what… it’s finally happening! This fall, we’ll be running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the trip and the resulting Diner Porn book, with all-new content! We’re working really hard behind-the-scenes right now to perfect all the details, but first…

We need your help in deciding on our route!

We could just head over to Yelp and try to find the best diners that way, but this blog is about more than just “good reviews.” We want a story, and we know that we might have to get a bit off-the-beaten-path to find one. So here’s the deal: we’re going to give you our general route, and you’re going to tell us your favorite diners in and around the cities we’ll be visiting and highways we’ll be taking (since some of the best diners are the ones on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere!). We don’t want the most famous diners—we want the ones you like the best. The ones that mean something to the community.

Do you know where has the best milkshakes in Philadelphia? The nicest waitresses in Kalamazoo? The best old-school decor in St. Louis? Drop it in our “ask” box or e-mail us at Let us know if you want to meet up along the trip—your face (or your cup of coffee) could end up in our book. Also message us if you have accommodations you could offer along the way—that would be an amazing help, and we’re not picky! Couches (or backyards where we can set up our tent) are just fine.

Here’s what we’re starting with: Diner Porn Takes America

We know this will probably change as we confirm diners and lodging, but we had to start somewhere. Here’s the list of cities for easier viewing:

Philadelphia, PA
Baltimore, MD
Washington, DC
Richmond, VA
Raleigh, NC
Charleston, SC
Savannah, GA
Atlanta, GA
Mobile, AL
New Orleans, LA
Jackson, MS
Memphis, TN
Nashville, TN
St. Louis, MO
Chicago, IL
Kalamazoo, MI
Cleveland, OH
Pittsburgh, PA
Binghamton, NY

But please remember—we’re not tied to these cities and we’re willing to travel further for really good diners!

Share with your friends here on Tumblr, on Facebook, on Twitter… we want to reach as many diner lovers as possible before we make our final decisions.

Thanks so much for helping, as always. We’re so lucky to be able to share our passions with all of you.

E-mail us, Tweet us, or message us on Facebook.

help us! help us!

it’s like porn 😳

All the grass cut in Florida in one month could feed all the animals on the planet for a year. We just don’t use it. And these assholes tell you that you live in scarcity? You don’t live in scarcity, you live in a poorly designed and poorly managed system.
