DAVID ROBERTS TWITTERsome muddy feelings about the brett kavanaugh confirmation (mostly about partisanship), but david roberts’s tweet cuts to the heart of it. and as one commenter pointed out — what also does it say to the young women who see how this plays out, if he gets confirmed? (via my sister and david roberts)

on the phone trying to rent dumpsters for this concert and this made me laugh — from “What Gary Shteyngart Can’t Live Without”:

I bought these sneakers at Alife on Rivington. The salespeople there are so cool. One of them said to me, “These sneakers make you look like a drug dealer.” I was like, “I’ll take 20 pairs, please.” But they just make me feel super comfortable, like I’m walking on panna cotta.

beans for beef is my new bumper sticker

from the atlantic:

Recently Harwatt and a team of scientists from Oregon State University, Bard College, and Loma Linda University calculated just what would happen if every American made one dietary change: substituting beans for beef. They found that if everyone were willing and able to do that—hypothetically—the U.S. could still come close to meeting its 2020 greenhouse-gas emission goals, pledged by President Barack Obama in 2009.

That is, even if nothing about our energy infrastructure or transportation system changed—and even if people kept eating chicken and pork and eggs and cheese—this one dietary change could achieve somewhere between 46 and 74 percent of the reductions needed to meet the target.

I MEAN BROS!!!!! do it! we’re in it together! i’m not a bosser and everyone’s gotta do their thing, but…why not try beef no more?! you can still eat all the chicken tenders, salmon, trout, bacon, roast chicken, sushi, and caviar you want! BUT BEEF  — BE GONE?!?!?

(and for other reasons to go all the way veg, please read david foster wallace’s “consider the lobster”)

something kind of poignant about this
