EDIT: Thanks so much, this has been a ton of fun! I gotta go run and take care of some things, but I will try to get to a few more questions later on today.
Hey folks. If you frequent cooking and food science subreddits (such as /r/seriouseats or /r/cooking or /r/askculinary), we’ve probably met. I’m the author of The Food Lab: Better Home cooking Through Science, which is a recipe-based good science book for home cooks. I’m also the former culinary director of the website Serious Eats and I run a California beer hall in San Mateo CA called Wursthall. I have a children’s book called Every Night is Pizza Night coming out next fall and am working on series of follow-ups to my first book. This September I also joined The New York Times Food team.
Aside from cooking, I’m into playing, writing, and recording music, woodworking, and pretty much anything... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m also known for my TED talk “When ideas have sex” which has been viewed several million times, my other seven books on science and politics/economics, writing for The Times and The Wall Street Journal, editing at The Economist, and perhaps most importantly my Ph.D thesis on bird behaviour!
I'll be back at 6pm GMT to answer questions for about an hour!
My new book How Innovation Works will be available May 14th in the UK and May 19th in the US and Canada. Scroll to the bottom of my website and subscribe to my blog to get notified when it comes out, and access the free preview (hopefully) coming in a couple weeks!

We have decades of sex positive sex columnists and women as a whole are not any closer to having satisfying sex as we were 50 years ago when the HIITE Report Came out.
I suspect it’s partially because most of the “sex advice” in mainstream media is actually more interested in pushing an agenda than true explorations of female sexuality.
Did any of them study human health or sexology? You know, something useful?
Why should any of these people position themselves as experts?!
Here is an excerpt of her advice.
Dear Bianca: I’ve been trying to lose weight, and keep it off, for years, with varying degrees of success. I’ve tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Deal-A-Meal. You name it, I’ve tried it. I belong to three different gyms, I’ve worked with a trainer; I’m even seeing a psychiatrist, yet nothing helps; I don’t know what to do. I’m beside myself. Janice Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Janice, Of course you’re beside yourself—you weigh five hundred pounds. You’re beside everybody. You’re two people. Actually, three people, if they’re all frail, petite, or in ill health with Stage Four Something or Other. Being morbidly obese is much different from just being fat. Anyone can get fat; morbid obesity takes work and requires drive and determination. Good for you! Be proud of your stick-to-it-iveness; you’ve made a concerted, diligent effort to become a sideshow attraction, and all of your hard work has paid off. In fact, why not BE a sideshow attraction? Why not... keep reading on reddit ➡
Are there any sex bloggers or columnists you think follow FDS principles?
Literally every mainstream media sex columnist for women is LibFem Cool Girl attention seeking trash (Vice, Cosmo, Vogue, Jezebel, etc) and most of the columnist lives in real life aren’t enviable.
They all think they give good advice about sex just because they’ve had a lot of it, but it all of it sounds like it was written by narcissist attention seekers more than self aware women enjoying amazing sex. Like the type of girls who do things without thinking just to have a story to brag about later and hype it up to everyone beyond its limits.
What’s funny is they’re literally all following the exact same script to the point where you can predict the articles. Let me guess: You had an epiphany while giving a morning blow job that “i’m a FeMiNist aNd i aCtuALly LiKe bEiNg SuBmiSsiVe!”🙄
Anyways, who do you think has actually helpful sex advice for women? Like real life enjoyable sex from women who do... keep reading on reddit ➡
Translation not from original column. Suggests this happened a ways back, Jans apologized to the player, all seemed to have moved on, and then only later the grievance/claim was filed. Channel 12's sports anchor also suggested in his report Friday that this happened "early" in training camp.
From Votebal Primeur (sort of a Dutch football news aggregator)
Ron Jans has been temporarily suspended from his club FC Cincinatti, after he sang a song in the club's dressing room that featured the word "n--gg-r." It causes indignation from Hugo Borst. He writes in his column in the Algemeen Dagblad that the trainer was shocked. 'Jans loves his soccer players, he is sensitive to the atmosphere. One of the words he used is forbidden... keep reading on reddit ➡
Like I could genuinely see her writing articles in magazines/newspapers or appearing on This Morning. She really had such a good screen presence and was so honest telling things like they were
James "Jennifer" Boylan finds an outlet to detail his bizarre fantasy life. The spectacle of this product of all male prep schools claiming to be one of the world's most oppressed women is sickening.
Comrades and companeros,
I'm in the spec stages of putting together two live shows: one at the DNC and one at the RNC.
If anyone has a line on any bars, theaters, comedy clubs that regularly host podcast recordings in Milwaukee and/or Charlotte, sound off!
The massive Lord Shiva in chalk white plaster, atop R.K. Studios, has heavy busts. Down below in the dressing rooms of the studio, designers are busy stuffing leading ladies' bras with cotton wool, rubber and foam. For Raj Kapoor's leading ladies, two things are a must: They must have heavy busts and they must be in love with Raj Kapoor.
Kapoor was already married when he made his first film Aag with three leading ladies - Kamini Kaushal, Nigar Sultana, Nargis. Out of the passion and flames of Aag, Kapoor gathered Nargis in his arms and hoisted her high on the R.K. banner. With violin in one hand and Nargis in the other he became the symbol of true love.
After Barsaat, Awara, Shri 420 and Jagte Raho, the pair became the Indian screen's most immortal love legend.
The Medicine Hat News seems to be losing patience with all the BS:
>Eat shit, Blaise. I was calling out @sunrickbell. Happy? I chose not to name him because he’s not an elected official. How bout you come on down to MH and call me a coward to my face? You can bring Rick if you want and I’ll tell him what I think of his work in person.
The News article is worth a read.
>Certain members of the “media” aren’t helping either. A columnist recently suggested the Calgary Board of Education got “their butts kicked” by Education Minister Adriana LaGrange because “they called her bluff” over cuts and lost. He also linked to a story from his own newspaper that debunked every five-word sentence used to describe this made-up Adriana Balboa vs. The Devil title bout he’d just witnessed.
