Happiness From the Back of a Truck

March 30, 2011

Truck with creepy chimes drives into town plastered with corporate logos. Is there a driver, is it remote control? . . .Push the button on the back and receive your ration of poisoned sugar water. Naturally we crowd around to get ours, but you’ve got to be fast, the truck is only so big and there are only so many teats. Welcome to the future of food supply. . . .Hungrier the town is the less the truck slows down (for safety)- and if you’re on really hard times there are helicopters and nothing.

This video really made me laugh. Thanks!
This is fucked up.

Saving the World

February 19, 2010


Your best option, make buttons. Most of the world’s problems can be solved through arts and crafts. Making fun from crap can save the world, singing a song can feed a starving family for weeks, wearing the ribbon immediately qualifies you as a doctor working hard to find the hue. (more…)

Filthy Kitchen Article: Avoid Switching Gears

August 29, 2009

Whatever it is you do and are doing, its important to keep the task at hand at hand. Cooking a burger? You cook the first side fully, then do one necessary gear switch and flip the patty. Finish the second side and remove it from the heat. Only one gear switch, otherwise it comes out dry and shitty. Don’t waste time standing over a hot bbq wrecking your dinner. (more…)

Filthy Kitchen Video: Chopping and Dicing

Have a look at The Advantage of a Dull Knife for More on This Topic. The greatest part of this technique is that you will only dirty the knife and your hands. Luckily both can be quickly cleaned with a quick pant wipe. quick. (more…)

Tips for dealing with your garbage during the garbage strike:

July 10, 2009


Researching what i could do with my garbage, I found that most sources are granola bloggers who’ve really just taken this opportunity to brag about how they compost on their bicycles, make art from old pop cans and buy nothing. This is my list of helpful tips for real people. I’m not going to sugar coat this or pretend that these solutions are green or fair (more…)

Rats with your groceries?

February 4, 2009

Loblaws at Dupont and Christie re-opened yesterday: Now serving fresh “meat” in the butcher section- very local supplier. Does anyone actually believe that a massive grocery store could be fully sanitized and rid of pests all in one weekend after an infestation? (more…)

Biofuels are Bullshit

December 13, 2008


It’s pretty simple, mankind is already straining our farmland to grow enough food to feed everyone. People are still starving, food costs continue to rise. Mankind is also extremely dependent on fuel. Other than maybe air and water, i can’t think of something humans consume more of than food and fuel. Filling cars with biofuels would basically group our two most demanded commodities onto one production source. Its preposterous. (more…)

Owning Life

November 17, 2008


Mapping the human genome. This is incredibly precise. It’s this precision that makes it so dangerous- if gives the owners of the code too much power. Forget taking over the world with armies, or economics, or culture- the world could be conquered with the birth of a single baby. A new messiah of human design. (more…)

Exterminate Like A God

October 24, 2008

Well, i’m no scientologist (that’s a smart person word for scientist right), but i’ve been spouting off about how fantastic irradiation is for years. Irradiation: its the process they’ve used to keep that super bacon edible for months in your cupboard, and its very similar to how the meat in your can of ravioli stays safe. Basically, to preserve, you either cook the shit out of something or hit it with radiation, and then immediately throw it into a perfectly sealed container. If there is absolutely no bacteria in the packaged food, then there is no possibility of bacteria growing and making people sick.

I started thinking, I’ll bet there are further applications for a devise that reliably wipes out all living organisms within a certain space. (more…)

Food Supply

October 22, 2008


In the old days John raised cows, Joe grew wheat and Jennifer fished: individuals produced food and traded it.

Our supply of food has been whittled down to fewer and fewer sources. The grocery stores have amalgamated into 2-3 giant companies. Farms have been sewn together to form massive food machines. Even the struggling independent variety store owner is forced to get many of his supplies from costco and walmart. Naturally big (more…)
