The New York Times ran Eddie Adams's graphic photograph of the summary execution of Nguyễn Văn Lém during the Vietnam War, in large format, on its own printed pages, with no warning, hidden behind no link. (It won the 1969 Pulitzer Prize.) » 8/19/14 11:35pm Yesterday 11:35pm

Glasshole Wants You To Wear A Computer On Your Face While You Cook

National Geographic magazine, a mail-order Caring About Things merit badge for baby boomers, has been running a "Future of Food" series on the Plate, its food blog, for the past few months. This month's entry was written by Mary Beth Albright, an attorney, food writer, and former contestant on Food Network Star's… » 8/18/14 2:45pm Monday 2:45pm

It's not my place to respond to you, but: You seem to be operating under the notion that authors are responsible for approving every comment under their posts. That's not true! They're responsible for approving good comments, when they see them. If your comment isn't approved, that doesn't indict the post's author… » 8/18/14 12:20pm Monday 12:20pm

Actually, Here Is A Good Ranking Of The Fruits

Many internet web sites like to rank the fruits. You can see right away that these rankings are wrong and bad, both because their results are stupid, and for the reason those results are stupid, which is that they were assembled using a lousy-ass amateurish methodology. Amateur bush-league-ass fruit-rankers are… » 8/14/14 2:15pm 8/14/14 2:15pm

Hey Joel, I have a question about the fix. Will responding to pending comments have the same effect as clicking the star-button to promote them? I think divorcing the two (so that star-clicking bumps a comment to the front page, but responding alone doesn't) would do a lot to reduce the power of trolls. That is,… » 8/13/14 11:51am 8/13/14 11:51am

How To Make Hushpuppies, Which Are Man's Second-Best Friend

You may already know one of the many (likely apocryphal) hushpuppy origin stories, in some form or another. A familiar one has an old-timey Deep South cook (possibly a slave, depending on the storyteller's willingness to acknowledge the foundational crime of American history) preparing food for some form of large,… » 8/09/14 10:01am 8/09/14 10:01am

Don't Buy All The Pies At Burger King To Spite A Child, You Asshole

By now you likely have encountered this thing, currently wending its way across the internet. In short, the story goes that the guy—a redditor (of course) known as thr111—spited the whiny, out-of-control child and distracted, defensive mother behind him in line at Burger King by purchasing every pie left in the… » 8/07/14 12:35pm 8/07/14 12:35pm

Also, it's dumb as hell to lump Kyrie and Wade together. Kyrie can stretch the floor; Wade, crucially, couldn't. And anyway, the Heat went to four straight Finals in the Big Three era; if LeBron decided he wanted to reboot the formula in Cleveland, wouldn't that be smart? » 8/07/14 9:58am 8/07/14 9:58am

The Wisconsin State Fair Has One Food-On-A-Stick Too Many

So here's the full list of truncheon-mounted foodstuffs at the Wisconsin State Fair, currently underway in, uh, well, Wisconsin, of course. Actually, no, here's not the full list, because the full list apparently has more entries on it than there are human beings to consume them. Wisconsonianitians sure do love… » 8/06/14 4:45pm 8/06/14 4:45pm

Eggnog Flavoring Goes Critical, Demolishes New Jersey Food Lab

Maybe you were thinking that eggnog gets its flavor from nutmeg and cinnamon and sugar and booze. Maybe you were thinking that if anything about this rich, sweet beverage were harmful, surely it'd be the raw egg and the cream, and the occasionally gastrointestinally hazardous combination of alcohol and those… » 8/05/14 2:31pm 8/05/14 2:31pm
