day 234: straight people continue to confound me. even surrounded by them on a daily basis, there is much of their biology and social behavior i don’t understand. hopefully, they will become clearer to me if i remain diligent in my studies. only then will i truly be able to understand nohomo sapiens.
If you want to piss off comic fanboy dudebros, do these things:
Say “What??? There’s more than one Robin?” or “There is only one Robin!”
Constantly refer to Robin as “the wonder boy”!
Call Deadpool a villain
Wear a fan shirt without having read a comic
Only read one-shots or AU comics and not long runs
Be upset about actually important topics, such as “healing” disabled heroes permanently, lack of diversity, queerbaiting, not showing a canon bisexual comic character as actually bisexual in mainstream tv, canceling of shows that have actual value and a lot of diversity, exploitation and oversexualisation of female characters, age-old and sexist tropes, comicbook writers who are offensive or use racist/sexist/ableist/etc. plot devices

Our tongues only detect 20% of the salt on potato chips, that is why Lay’s developed a new ‘designer salt’ with the same taste that allows them to use 25% less sodium
The average American consumes about twice the daily recommended limit of salt. Too much salt in the diet can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease.
The manufacturers of Lay’s potato chips have taken note of this problem and have found a way to lessen the risk without compromising on taste.
They’re developing a new designer salt.
The crystals of this salt are shaped and sized differently from that of normal salt and will reduce the amount of sodium consumers will ingest while snacking.
Because of the way our tongues perceive salt, 80% of the salt on potato chips are swallowed before we even taste it! Only 20% is dissolved and tasted by our tongues.
That is why the manufacturers of Lay’s will now be using a powdery ingredient that tastes exactly like salt. It will deliver an initial spike of saltiness, then a body of flavor and lingering sensation, said Dr. Yep, who joined the company in June 2009.
When they tested the designer salt in the United States and in the UK, consumers could not tell the difference between the new and the conventional salt.
By 2015, Lay’s should contain 25% less sodium.
Said Indra Nooyi, Chairman of PepsiCo.: “What we want to do with our “fun for you” products is to make them the healthiest “fun for you” products.”
just remember that had voldemort picked neville to kill instead of harry and nevile was the boy who lived/the chosen one if neville had that lightening bolt scar severus snape would still be a death eater
it’s not like he thought being a death eater was wrong — it wasn’t until something directly affected him did he reconsider and idk about you but that is not my definition of “bravery” in the slightest
