Kate Mulgrew Is in a Doc that Argues the Sun Revolves Around the Earth

The beloved and iconic Kate Mulgrew—of Star Trek: Voyager and Orange Is the New Black—has reportedly narrated a new documentary, produced by virulent anti-Semite and Holocaust denier Robert Sungenis, promoting the idea that the sun revolves around the earth. What does it all MEAN!?!?!?

leanin:

"Strong is the New Pretty" is a new photo series by Kate Parker which shows her two daughters and their friends "just as they are: loud, athletic, fearless, messy, joyous, frustrated. I wanted to celebrate them, just as they are, and show them that is enough.  Being pretty or perfect is not important. Being who they are is."

The art of street typography

by Jason Kottke

I don't know exactly what my expectations were of how lettering is painted on city streets, but this was not it. The level of precision and artistry is surprising.

Reminds me of this video of a hand-lettering master at work.

Adam Scott Brings Back Step Brothers Character to Promote Obamacare

by Madeleine Davies

Whenever I stumble upon Step Brothers while flipping though cable, I will stop and watch the rest of the movie no matter what. The film (written by Adam McCay and Will Ferrell) is so perfectly stupid, funny and absurd that watching it is like the world's best lobotomy — both because it's temporary and, for a few blissful moments, you don't have to think or worry about anything.

Dear 10-Year-Old Self, Before you ask me when you have your...



Dear 10-Year-Old Self,

Before you ask me when you have your first kiss or if you’ll ever have a boyfriend, I need to tell you some more important stuff first. What’s more important than a first kiss, you ask? Plenty.

First of all, don’t let that kid in your class, Danny, who called you fat, make you self-consciously wear oversized sweatshirts for the next four years to hide your body. That kid is horrible and years from now he will be boring and bald and trying to get in touch with you to come to the set of the TV show you work on. No, you don’t work on Cheers. That show’s not on the air anymore. That would’ve been awesome, though.

Another thing: Say thank you, always. Gratitude is the closest thing to beauty manifested in an emotion. When you’re grateful, people are attracted to you.

Also: Make sure you appreciate Mom and Dad. Yes, they never seem to let you do anything now except read books. Once you turn 18 you’ll never get to live with them again, and you’ll live far away, and you will miss them so much it hurts.

Next: Learn forgiveness and bestow it generously.

Finally: Don’t let anyone give you any crap. Mastering a balance of these last two will take you a lifetime, so you had better get started now.

If you're too busy to iron, but you need a shirt or pair of pants smooth and wrinkle-free for an interview, a night out, or just so you look good, this time-saving tip can help. Toss a couple of ice cubes (not too many) in the dryer with your wrinkled clothes. Run it on its hottest setting. It's strange, but it works.

"Wow, My First Tweet Was Fucking Stupid"

by Christopher Frizzelle

Someone in the office just looked up their first tweet and said that. You can look up your first tweet here. Everyone in the office rolls their eyes when an internet thing like this comes along, and then we all turn toward our computers and do what we just rolled our eyes about doing. My first tweet was apparently a Flannery O'Conner joke. #embarrassing #typical #figures

Silpain, the Silpat for Bread, Is a Welcome Addition to the Bread Baker's Kitchen

by dbcurrie

201403-gadgets-silpain.jpg

[Photograph: Silpat]

You might say that I bake a bit of bread. Sometimes I bake on a stone or in a loaf pan. Sometimes I bake on a baking pan, and in that case I either sprinkle the sheet with cornmeal or I line it with parchment because I hate it when the crust sticks to the pan.

Although I have a Silpat, I never use it for bread. It's too slick and smooth and I don't get the crust I like. So when I found out that the Silpat folks had a mat made specifically for bread, I figured it was worth a try. The difference is that the Silpain ($17.90) is a fine mesh mat instead of an impermeable silicone mat, allowing air to circulate under the loaf.

Does it make a difference? To give it a test, I made one batch of dough, split it in half, formed two loaves, and put one on a baking pan with the Silpain and the other on a baking pan with parchment. I ended up with loaves of bread that were anything but identical.

As I expected, the bottom of the loaf baked on the Silpain was a little crisper than the loaf baked on parchment. What I didn't expect, but was happy to find, was that I got a little more oven spring (the extra rise you get when the loaf goes into the oven) from the Silpain loaf as well, perhaps because of the dark surface.

The other benefit of the Silpain is that it's easy to slide the whole thing off the baking pan and onto a cooling rack. It's easy enough to lift a loaf of bread to move it a rack, but a full pan of hot buns isn't as easy to move. And since the Silpain has holes, the buns can stay on the mat until they're cool enough to be moved without risk of developing soggy bottoms

This certainly isn't an essential kitchen item, but I like having a lot of different options for baking bread so I get different results. Sometimes I want the crunch of cornmeal on the bottom a loaf, but now that I've got this mat, I won't be using nearly as much parchment paper.

Behold the Most Perfectly Scathing Missed Connection of All Time

Tuesday evening, a commuter on the T in Boston observed a man approach a woman and — without any prior interaction — tell her to lose weight. The observing passenger was outraged on the woman's behalf and, unable to confront the man before he got off the train, took to Craigslist to air her grievances in what might be the most appropriately scathing missed connection of all time:

Despite Rumours, Marvel Has No Firm Plans for a Female Superhero Film

by izzyromaro on Groupthink, shared by Rebecca Rose to Jezebel

The upcoming films in Marvel's universe such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy both have diverse supporting casts, unlike past titles, which is a direction I hope it stays in. However in a recent press-junket for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Kevin Feige (Marvel's President of Production), when asked about the lack of diversity in former Marvel Films said the following:
