Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!

NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.
SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.

the structure or energy of the water

what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice

the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about

Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:

Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.

it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it

…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein nucleic acid in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.
(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)

Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.

I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.

This movement causes friction

That’s not what friction is.

It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

Let’s take these one at a time.
Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)
Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.

things that are not found in nature

What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.
Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.
PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.
LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.

Standing ovation (in my heart). What a spectacular takedown!

My response to the ‘I am not a feminist’ internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (it is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.

Why the hell was there a black guy in Maleficent?

These people are living in medieval Europe very far detached from any sort of ocean or sea. I’d be amazed if they had even invented a boat yet. Where the hell did the black guy come from?

there were…

Even better, black people were sailing around in boats centuries before then. Ever heard of the Egyptians?

Do you support webcomics? Take this one question survey:

1. Do you take the RSS feed of over 90 webcomics, rip the images, put them in your Android app, and then put your own advertisements next to them in order to make money?

Congratulations: If you said “Yes”, then NO, YOU DO NOT SUPPORT…

From Hello Giggles:

I’m frustrated that the mainstream media is covering this story like it’s any comeback story, like an exiled prince’s return to a former glory, like this is another political timeline — as though some rich and powerful old white men in the music business have not just issued an enormous ‘f**k you’ to every woman who has been, is or will be on the receiving end of domestic violence.

We should be furious.

Why aren’t we?

aka ‘my bff got me into this amazing blog thing and I CAN’T GET OFF’ *ironic choice of phrase*

So the Misanthropologist writes about a site called Tastebuds which pairs people up based on their similar tastes in music. WHAAAAAAT. You guys, my taste in music is not so great. It’s why I rely on people like jamieyk and lovedesignlife and minimoonstar to show me new awesome stuff. And even the good music that I like is not a reasonable indicator of what I want from a lover. The only guys I have met who love The National and Tori Amos and Regina Spektor are pretty aggressively gay. (Although I’m pretty sure Audie would be aggro no matter his sexuality, but I digress.) 

Now I’m wondering if it’s different for different sexualities. I’m pretty sure whatever gender or sexuality you prefer or identify with, this idea is fairly tone-deaf with regard to real human interaction. I wish you could get chatlogs.

(I seem to be a little misanthropic myself lately; may need a smoothie and/or a new project soon.)

So, given my hideously biased review, would YOU date a person based on musical preference?

Hipster vs. Artist: the War that DOESN’T EXIST

Watched the HitRECord livestream at Sundance last night with all possible glee and fangirlishness. Woke up angry this morning. Why? Because at every pop culture mass event I have ever been to, there’s always a douche who tries to start up the Hipster debate. Only this time Joe, a guy I usually trust to cut other people’s bullshit, actually gave him the mic. Unleashing a stream of wank about how ‘indie means flannel’ and ‘hipsters are those guys who dress like artists but don’t actually make anything’. Well what the fuck do artists dress like, then? Tell me so I can obey this instantly decoded norm. 

It’s been years since the word ‘hipster’ first reared its ugly head, and tbh I thought the word was pretty cool. I think it’s cool now. Why do people hate it so much? What do hipsters do that’s so bloody annoying?

Here are some things I have heard people say about hipsters. They dress in plaid and Converse and skinny jeans. They drink a beer called Pabst Blue Ribbon, and when they can’t get that they drink microbrews. They eat organic and buy funny stuff on Etsy or Urban Outfitters. They use Lomography cameras. Their flats are full of knitted octopodes (I always thought octopi was plural for octopus, but I was wrong) and indie comics and bicycle gear. They like farmer’s markets, secondhand bookshops, The National, Sigur Ros, Regina Spektor, and every French or Japanese film ever.

Dear artists: These are exactly the people you want buying your work. These people will obsessively collect your short films, your steampunk jewellery, your crocheted bags, your keychain fobs you made out of Sherlock chibis, and they will bypass the evil artist-screwing machine of Urban Outfitters for your handmade Doctor Who scarf. And you know what? You don’t have the right to sneer at them just because you made that scarf and they didn’t. Especially if they want to buy it from you.

My favourite uncle has a model rocket straight out of Tintin that he got for his birthday. He wears ironic t-shirts with Chairman Mao on them, Spiderman boxers, stovepipe jeans and Paul Smith trainers. He loves Hayao Miyazaki and Wong Kar-Wai films. He is responsible for getting me into Batman, Asterix, Tintin, Guy Delisle…is partly responsible, in fact, for me being an illustrator and especially an animator. He also runs an international travel agency that was recently featured in Conde Nast Traveller. Just because someone is a hipster and not an artist doesn’t mean they can’t get awesome shit done. So stop using words to define and deride a person’s entirety and get some of your own shit done.

This has been a rant. Thanks. And, um, sorry. I’ll post some fanart in a bit.

this is fun to read because it’s basically some dude saying rude, women’s-choices-are-all-made-for-the-benefit-of-men things

DUDE: wtf is with this new trend of girls looking like dudes, cut that shit out

Because last year I wore a leather harness thing with a turtleneck from the menswear collection of All Saints, and damn if I didn’t feel like a GQMF.

My New Year’s resolution: be a fucking GQMF as often as possible

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to buy waistcoats and bracers and pinstripe trousers.
