I can see being a little anti-fork. Eating salad from a bowl with a fork — horrific.


Commenting on In that sense, the communes were already The Man

Good read. I found this interesting:

"Communes ended up being places that were deeply racially divided, even though none of them would ever cop to being explicitly racist or wouldn’t even want to be. Gender norms were incredibly conservative on communes. I don’t know how many photographs I’ve looked at of young women, pregnant, barefoot, carrying loaves of bread"

I have to agree with the idea that without bureaucracy then things tend to fall into a small group of charismatic people taking the lead and the rest following.

just read the front page but i think about that stuff a lot more since i lost my house. i'll never have another one. it's heartbreaking and i'm this close to bitter about it without warning.

In related news… I like looking at reports because they're understandable and don't talk back, unlike some people I work with.

Yeah, your celery lead to a long journey through the history of silverware. (To the WABAC machine!)

Apparently at one time practically everything had its own fork. Even ice cream; turns out an ice cream fork is just a high-class, fancy spork though. I also found out about other crazy-specific silverware, such as the waffle knife and the Saratoga chip server.

Did you know that at one time, parts of the Roman Catholic Church were against forks?

Asparagus has its own fork? And an anniversary? Lord above…

That seems like a very civilized way to get celery out of a jar. Plus this post lead to the discovery that there is a special fork for serving asparagus. (And thence to the question of which anniversary is the Asparagus Anniversary.)
