Random stuff


This video cracked me up so bad. There are so many of these fads nowadays, of people who are gluten-free, people who are pescetarians, people who swear by juicing...I find it really funny these people have no idea what gluten is. A super simple answer that I thought everyone knew is that gluten is a protein in wheat and certain types of other grains that some people in the world are allergic to, and they have celiac. Boy these people and their dumb herd mentalities.

This is also pretty cool. Although it is completely stereotypical, but I think it's all in good fun and I would have loved to withdraw a handful of fabulous hehehe.

Famous Novelists on Symbolism in Their Work and Whether It Was Intentional

I remember how my English teacher would ALWAYS attack my critiques saying that I don't delve into the symbols and motifs used by the author enough. And I always thought that the author probably never intended to make all these symbols everywhere and some times, art is just art and you can appreciate a novel, a painting, or a play, without reading too much into it. So this article is kinda cool, and I did verify with Wikipedia that it really did happen (I usually find it hard to trust these kind of clickbait-sounding titles). Also, John Updike and Ayn Rand sounded like total bitches!
