1. This headline is, sadly, pretty misleading. There aren’t a whole lot of secret sex parties in PGH (at least that I’m aware of), but there is a thriving house/techno scene that the article itself does a pretty good job of capturing.

    Sometimes, when I get stressed and just don’t want to have to deal with the real world anymore, I have this fantasy of opening up a little Italian grocery where I can just hang around and drink wine and play scopa all day.

     
  5. I’ll never understand people who get up in arms about spoiler alerts for works of fiction and then turn around and dismiss trigger warnings as unnecessary.

     
  6. Dictionary definitions frequently offer verbal substitutes for an unknown term which only conceal a lack of real understanding. Thus a person might look up a foreign word and be quite satisfied with the meaning “bullfinch” without the slightest ability to identify or describe this bird. Understanding does not come through dealings with words alone, but rather with the things for which they stand. Dictionary definitions permit us to hide from ourselves and others the extent of our ignorance.

    I need a vegetarian recipe that is fairly cheap and pretty easy for dinner tonight and go!

    Here’s my go-to one-pot meal. It’s different every time I make it, so feel free to suit it to what you have on hand.

    Ingredients:

    • Onion, carrot, and celery, chopped (you can use frozen veg mix if you want)
    • 1 can chick peas (drained)
    • 1 bunch kale, spinach, or some other leafy green (again, frozen is okay)
    • 1 cup rice
    • 2 cups water

    How to make it:

    1. Saute your mirepoix (that’s a fancy French word for onion, carrot and celery) in some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Squirt in some Sriracha if you feel like it.
    2. Once the onions start to get clear (but not brown), add in your kale (or whatever), chick peas, and your spices. Saute that for a little bit until the greens start to wilt.
    3. Add in your rice and water. Bring to a boil.
    4. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for about 25 minutes.
    5. Eat like a champion.

    Note: if you have vegetable stock or bouillon, you can use that instead of water.

     
  8. Joni Mitchell and Johnny Cash performing “Girl from the North Country” on the Johnny Cash Show, 1970.

     
  9. walk the plank

    I mean… I’m a pretty good swimmer, so I would take this option in a heartbeat if I could…

    What exactly are the legal ramifications of just flat out refusing to pay back student loan debt?
