PEYTO LAKE, THE BLUEST LAKE…
It’s shaped like a star. Totally thinking Super Mario World right now.
Thanks Google. Appreciate that incredible conversion.
… What the hell are you trying to convert?
A recipe that asks for a stick of butter, because in Britain we use numbers! HUZZAH.
Seriously though how the fuck do I measure ml of butter.
Well, butter is slightly less dense than water, so 118ml of butter is going to be like, 110g?
It is “around 1/4 of a pound but depends where you live. Some places it can be up to 2 pounds. “
I just want to measure this butter. -.-
118.294118 mL is equal to 0.118294118 L. If butter is 911g/L, then multiply the two: (0.118294118 Liter) X (911 grams / 1 Liter) = 107.765941498 grams. Thus, 1 stick of butter is equal to approximately 107.75 grams, or about a tenth of a kilogram. Hope that helps! -Dan

According to a study from the University of Washington, the rift between healthy grub and junk food is wider than it’s ever been. Researchers were able to buy 2,000 calories of junk food for $3.52 — that’s an entire day’s caloric intake — where nutritious foods cost them a whopping $36 for the same 2,000 calories.
IN OTHER NEWS, WATER IS WET
I love (read: hate) how it’s not really real when people who live this reality are shouting up and down that this is how it is, this is the truth, this is the world out there and everyone’s still passing around that ridiculous as hell “you can buy healthy foods for cheap” infographic that must’ve been made in 1970 because fuck it doesn’t even touch what real prices are here in 2013. It’s just people talking, it’s just “anecdata” which is a word people use to say “your life experience isn’t scientific enough to count”.
But when the U of Washington or the U of AnyFuckingThing does a fucking study, oh well, then it’s very real. When people who probably don’t have to live this reality go in and come up with some numbers, oh well, then it’s data. Then it’s gospel fucking truth. Then we can recognize a problem. Probably not do anything about it because, let’s face it, the system is doing what it was designed to do. Punish and starve out those already made most vulnerable economically or in other ways.
But we’ll have a study that documents that it was really real because the U of Washington fucking DISCOVERED it. And all those people who were practically shouting the walls down about it? Magically they evaporate and were never there.
Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.
