No. Just. NO. I am so sick of this bullshit stereotype being both perpetuated AND played out. No.
Saying nice girls go with the assholes is the biggest stereotype in relationships of all time
Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason…
'Fewer crops' now feeding the world http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26382067
" Fewer crop species are feeding the world than 50 years ago - raising concerns about the resilience of the global food system, a study has shown. The authors warned a loss of diversity meant more people were dependent on key crops, leaving them more exposed to harvest failures. Higher consumption of energy-dense crops could also contribute to a global rise in heart disease and diabetes, they added. The study appears in the journal PNAS. "Over the past 50 years, we are seeing that diets around the world are changing and they are becoming more similar - what we call the ‘globalised diet’," co-author Colin Khoury, a scientist from the Colombia-based International Center for Tropical Agriculture, explained. "This diet is composed of big, major cops such as wheat, rice, potatoes and sugar. "It also includes crops that were not important 50 years ago but have become very important now, particularly oil crops like soybean," he told BBC News. While wheat has long been a staple crop, it is now a key food in more than 97% of countries listed in UN data, the study showed. And from relative obscurity, soybean had become "significant" in the diets of almost three-quarters of nations. He added that while these food crops played a major role in tackling global hunger, the decline in crop diversity in the globalised diet limited the ability to supplement the energy-dense part of the diet with nutrient-rich foods. "
and neoliberal capitalism found a new way to kill us all too.
side note: Part of what fuels this “fewer crops” is whenever Vegans hit on a new grain they want to purchase, or some new “super food” is coopted from (generally) the Global South.
In almost all cases, the root issue is the colonizing of diets. “This is a proper diet” “These are ~real~ cuisines”
And in big buyer markets like the US, there’s the big push for “healthy” diets (which, far from being healthy tend to be soy and grain heavy, both leave large carbon footprints, and in the case of the soy, large portions of that wind up being imported to the US, because we don’t have too many natural soy-friendly conditions).
More to the point: This is the result of large corps selling fixed strains of seeds (good for one, maybe two harvest seasons). It’s also the long-term effect of imbalanced aid packages that FORCE subject nations to grow certain crops, or generate certain types of agricultural goods. Regardless of how suitable those crops are for the region. Regardless of what the native agriculture looks like. Regardless of the environmental impact. The end result: You wind up with a narrowing of agricultural goods. You wind up with mass efforts at clear cutting. You wind up with drought conditions in regions that have LOST their major, native plants. You wind up with an endless cycle where the nations saddled with the most debt are forced to do the most labor under the worst conditions for products that, often, will not benefit them. At all.

god I cannot HANDLE how adorable Hugh is in this gag reel
Singin’ in the Rain (1952)
these men are such fundamentally different dancers but especially at slow GIF speed it’s clear how perfectly precise they were as a duo.
Donald O’Conner was actually nervous about this because he considered himself more of a hoofer than a dancer, and if you watch this number you can see he uses his upper body less than Gene Kelly. Also, they were both really worried that the other would turn the opposite direction from them, but as you can see, unlike Zoolander, they both turn left. :D
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.
This is glorious beyond my capacity to comprehend.
