A Truly Useless Rant

OK…so at sushi places, you can get edamame. Edamame are cooked, salted soybean pods. This dish is called “edamame.” We didn’t have a word for it in English so we use the Japanese word. The beans, however, we have a word for…they are soybeans. We call them soybeans.

Something sinister happened a…

if society is so obsessed with borrowing form Japanese, then why don’t we call soybeans “Daizu” (which is Japanese for soybean)

Bumping for people who have been saying that “edamame” is Japanese for “soybeans.” Edamame is the prepared dish, not the beans themselves. 

But, I know, language is fluid and these things happen and who cares, right?. I think the reason why it annoys me is because we don’t want to use the word “soy” because it doesn’t sound nice. “Soy” interestingly, is from a DIFFERENT Japanese word “shoyu” which we commonly call “soy sauce.”

When I was growing up…you couldn’t even buy soybeans at the supermakret…it’s a relatively new thing, while “soy products” have been around for a long time. Fancy salad places want to use a new, more elegant-sounding word for a commodity crop that America produces TONS of and has been producing for hundreds of years. I guess I can’t blame them…but triggers my BS detectors.

I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.

This is what happens when Candians are let lose and try to prank people

Okay, I’m going to take a gander at this.
(I have no idea why I was compelled to use that expression.)
Is “auto class” the same thing as driver’s education?

Hmm. Is part of it a “the screen is fried” pun? 

oh my fucking god
this is adorable

I’m American

I love this so much but I love the comments more

Oh my god. Fellow americans. How do you not understand.

Powerful & creative imagery

the food and education made me sad.

I have always been fascinated by these ‘world of 100 people’ things, I remember spending hours thinking through the ones on a poster at church when I was 9 or so. It really, really makes some really important stuff so blindingly clear, in numbers we can understand. And it should, I hope it does, inspire us to act. 

Amazing post.

i hope im one of the 7 people with a computer
