michaelbleecker:Watching this now and I’m loving it. #somm

I just heard about this movie. Wine is something I love so I need to seek this out. Here is the synopsis:

Somm takes the viewer on a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into a mysterious world—the Court of Master Sommeliers and the massively intimidating Master Sommelier Exam. The Court of Master Sommeliers is one of the world’s most prestigious, secretive, and exclusive organizations. Since its inception almost 40 years ago, less than 200 candidates have reached the exalted Master level. The exam covers literally every nuance of the world of wine, spirits and cigars. Those who have passed have put at risk their personal lives, their well-being, and often their sanity to pull it off. Shrouded in secrecy, access to the Court Of Master Sommeliers has always been strictly regulated, and cameras have never been allowed anywhere near the exam, until now. How much do you think you know about wine?

Yes, we are all related. You are a (probably distant) cousin of the Queen, and of the president of the United States, and of me. You and I are cousins of each other. … The real population of the world at the time of Julius Caesar was only a few million, and all of us, all seven billion of us, are descended from them. We are indeed all related. Every marriage is between more or less distant cousins, who already share lots and lots of ancestors before they have children of their own.

By the same kind of argument, we are distant cousins not only of all human beings but of all animals and plants. You are a cousin of my dog and of the lettuce you had for lunch, and of the next bird that you see fly past the window. You and I share ancestors with all of them.

Legendary evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins answers a child’s question about evolution and why we are all related, from this fantastic collection of scientists’ and philosophers’ answers to kids’ most pressing questions about how the world works.

Also see Dawkins’s The Magic of Reality, a charming children’s book fighting myth with science.

One time in class we were talking about abortion and most of the girls talking were pro-choice and it was a generally calm discussion then one of the pro-life boys used the phrase
“if a girl is stupid enough to get herself pregnant in the first place-“
…he didn’t get to finish the sentence

feel the fear

Trip to Hawaii. When you go there from Michigan you see all the sunrises. And it’s sooo worth it.

Is BMO From Adventure Time Expressive of Feminism? | Idea Channel | PBS Digital Studios

Um, as an Adventure Time fan and a feminist who loves BMO: <3. Seeing this (and done as part of PBS!) is pretty cool.

YouTube description:

Yes he’s a video game system, but she is so much more than that!! BMO from the fantastic show Adventure Time identifies as both male and female, and because of that expresses the ideals of Third Wave Feminism!! Third Wave Feminism questions if gender is actually binary, tied to our biological sex. Is our understanding of masculinity and femininity fair, or even ACCURATE? Of course, BMO has no biological gender, so there’s no cultural expectations that anchors her (him?) down. But it all seems a non-issue in the Adventure Time world. What do you think, is BMO male or female? Or does it even matter? Watch the episode to find out!

What do you think?
