I like it.
Only-tangentially-related: I made a joke once about:
a thin brown liquid, marketed under the trade name “I sure hope that’s not butter!”
At one point, due to events, it became desireable for me to make up a large selection of these, and put them in a video game. Some of them (like “roadsign yellow extreme butter substitute”) are mostly irrelevant, but you end up using a couple of them.
iirc, my contribution was “definitely some kind of lipid.”
The full list:
More Buttery Than Not
Are You Tired Of Choosing Between Guns And Butter
If That’s Butter, Then I’m Richard Nixon
Definitely Some Sort Of Lipid
It Goes On Toast, Anyway
Roadsign Yellow Extreme Butter Substitute
Butter My Ass!
You Could Convince Me That’s Not Butter
I Am Starting To Suspect That’s Not Butter
It Seems Probable That’s Not Butter
I Would Bet Money That’s Not Butter
Does That Look Like Butter To You?
I Sure Hope That’s Not Butter
Dear God, Don’t Let That Be Butter
That’s Too Thick To Be Butter!
That Looks More Like Hot Air Balloon Fuel Than Butter
The guns-and-butter one was “a fine black powder which spreads easily on toast”. They tended to have funny responses if you tried to smell or taste them. “Dear God, Don’t Let That Be Butter” was “a thick black substance which moves under its own power”. It had the special trait that any attempt to interact with it in normal ways would usually just produce “No.” but occasionally would say “You really have a death wish, don’t you?” You could also listen to it: “It whispers dark concepts in a language that bypasses your conscious mind entirely. Thoughts of death fill your head.”
The ones you actually needed were That Looks More Like Hot Air Balloon Fuel Than Butter (yes, there was a hot air balloon), and That’s Too Thick To Be Butter, a “thick, gritty, grey substance” which you used to repair a brick wall.
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
I’d never even considered this but I support it
I have seriously always wondered about this. I mean, most malls and such here have “family” rest rooms with change tables but I mean I have watched many a father bring his child out to the car to change because they don’t have rest room access. I am SO glad this is a post!!

All That Remains: A Haunting Gallery of Extinct Animals in Paris
La Salle des Espèces Menacées et des Espèces Disparues, or the Room of Endangered and Extinct Species, has 257 specimens from the animal and plant kingdoms. Many are the only remaining examples of their species, such as the skeleton of a black emu (the taxidermy is so precious that it is kept in storage). Others represent a species that is on the brink of obliteration, including the Sumatran tiger.
In life you have to make choices as to where you spend your time. Each minute you spend on one activity takes away from another. Finding a balance that allows you to keep your sanity and create memories and a legacy that you can be proud to pass on is the great challenge we all face. Our time is short, so choose wisely, prioritize and help others along the way. For only they will remember you when you are gone.
