Regarding my recent Tweet about the word "walnuts" in the DK Rap in Donkey Kong 64: the game's composer, Grant Kirkhope (@grantkirkhope) has stated that the word was chosen for the rhyme with "peanuts" and did not represent any in-game objects. https://t.co/EJIChha6GP
Plant advice request (mint) Show more
I recently moved into a place with a small shaded patio that is shaded nearly all day but is fairly well-lit due to the overhang being small. Would a mint plant work there? If not, what other herbs would? I live in the Midwest where summers are warm but fall/spring tends to be cool and potted plants must come inside in winter.
Tasty food advice Show more
If your savory food needs a little something, add a splash of sukang iloco (Phillipine sugarcane vinegar). I don't know enough about food to be able to describe the taste or why it makes food so good, but it's more or less like apple cider vinegar if it were a lot better.

idk if they intend to make more, but you could prob craft some if not.
#actuallyautistic, clarification Show more
I should clarify: by "controlling negative food talk" I don't mean not saying things like "I don't like asparagus" I mean not making judgements about the health/moral value of food in front of other people. Even if you personally think humans shouldn't eat starch/fruit/milk or whatever, humans have done well on diverse diets for millennia. Statements like that are triggering to people who struggle with disordered eating or have limited diets due to sensory issues.
#actuallyautistic Show more
Just to be clear I think that respecting food sensory issues is a crucial part of respecting the lives of Autistic people and others with similar minds. That means:
-Not making judgments on the health/moral value of what others are eating.
-Trusting people to eat the food that is best for them given their circumstances.
-Allowing people around you to eat, try, or not eat food you have made based on their needs that day.
-Controlling negative food talk in public.

Friendly reminder that eating is always better than going hungry. Even if you can't get to food you feel is 'healthy' (whatever that means), even if your sensory issues are flaring up and you can only eat simple things, even if people around you think you should be conforming to their diet instead of eating what works for you. You deserve to eat!

4h criticism, guinea pigs Show more
Really uh. Critical of 4H's use of guinea pigs in their program. Unlike some species in the program they are not used as food animals (in the US), guinea pigs are in no demand here as evinced by them constantly being dumped on Craigslist and other websites, and their lifespan far exceeds the length of the program and the interest of most children. Furthermore, the program allows them to be raised singly- a huge no no for a herd animal.
important reminder about food Show more
it is objectively worse for the body to skip a meal than to eat an "unhealthy" food. please take care of your body by eating enough.

Moving +-, unsanitary tw Show more
I just moved apartments to something that will hopefully be quieter than where I was previously. I suppose it couldn't really get much worse than having people throwing up onto my patio.
Moving can be very hard on Autistic people because we are very much creatures of habit. I'm trying to focus on things that are the same, like having my favorite teas and my kettle ready and playing my beloved video games.
Abled people dni Show more
Do you ever almost hate people who have the energy to wake up hours before they need to and run several miles when you're barely able to wake up in time to eat a bowl of cereal and get to work/class? I think about that a lot
Food production, ~ Show more
Not to be 'negative' or whatever but the number of people I see who have no knowledge of traditional or modern food production that seem to insist that a highly Westernized, water-intensive diet with a lot of veggies will save the world is disappointing. There's a reason why people eat different foods in different regions, and it's not hedonistic palate pleasure or whatever. We would do well to educate ourselves.
