Following GME and WSB? Fed up with the rich? Tired of feeling alone in your relative poverty? It's time to read The Grapes of Wrath.

I didn't pick up on hardly any of this when I read this one back in school, but reading it now, in the middle of (gestures at everything) thisβ€” it hits different. It actually means something.

The Joads have just been trampled on by the rich. Literally forced off their own land because someone with deeper pockets and bigger financial interests just wanted them out of the way.

This book is unfortunately the timeless American tale of how the rich will betray the poor and how the poor try to survive against impossible odds. It might give you hope. It might resonate with the resentment you already feel. It might give you a framework to understand or explain your reaction to what we've seen in the United States in the recent past. You might find Grapes full of shocking double standards, where the rich get a different set of rules (read: the rich have fewer rules). You might be stunned at how a novel from 80 years ago accurately describes what we still see today.

Get radicalized with me, and read The Grapes of Wrath.

Edit: thanks for the awards and all that. Also thanks for all the great reading suggestions left in the comments!

My personal recommendations for reading this book if it's your first time: don't try to understand everything that's going on, and don't be afraid or ashamed to read some sparknotes or the wikipedia plot summary. If you're not from or familiar with southern/midwestern accents, the dialogue can be hard to understand. It's not all crucial to the plot though, so don't worry if you find yourself glossing over things. Just don't rush through any interactions poor people have with better-off or rich people.

My personal recommendations for seasoned readers who are revisiting this one: take your time. Savor every line and visualize what Steinbeck is trying to show you. The dusty despair is real, and you should feel it.

[Discussion] Reminder about grape toxicity... My dog threw up 35 (35!!!) grapes at the emergency vet at 1:45am this morning.

A little after midnight, our 80lbs Akita mix, Finn, managed to get ahold of my closed container of grapes, take the lid off, and scarf down all but 8 (I guess he got full πŸ™„) while I was downstairs for a minute putting wood in the stove.

As soon as I saw the container on the ground, I did some frantic online searching and called the emergency vet. When asked, I estimated he had eaten maybe 15-20 grapes? I wasn’t sure. The vet asked us to bring him in immediately to induce vomiting. 45 minutes later, he hucked up THIRTY. FIVE. GRAPES. We were fucking astonished. We paid the $400 bill, thanked them profusely, and got home around 2:30am. Finn has been fine :)

Before this morning, I knew that grapes (and raisins, which are obviously just dehydrated grapes) were on the serious-no-no-food list, but didn’t know why. Having spent quite some time talking to the vet about it, I thought I would share my newfound knowledge in case anyone comes looking for the same info in the future.

MOST IMPORTANTLY:

  • If you believe your dog has eaten any grapes or raisins (whether it’s 1 or 15 or 35), CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN IMMEDIATELY!!! Your dog may need to vomit them out, and your vet will be able to give you the best information about that and lay out all of your options for doing so.

Okay now onto everything else:

  • No one knows why grapes are toxic to dogs, or exactly which toxins are to blame.

  • Grape toxins can cause renal failure (kidney shutdown) and death within 24-72 hours if not treated immediately.

  • Every dog has a different level of sensitivity to grape toxins, but the sensitivity levels are seemingly random and no one knows why. It’s impossible to predict sensitivity by size, breed, etc. of dog.

  • So for example: One dogs could eat 10 grapes and not get sick (low sensitivity), while another dog could eat 3 grapes and die 48 hours later (high sensitivity). And again... no one knows why.

  • Therefore, vets approach grape ingestion as if the dog is highly sensitive... because the alternative is allowing the dog to sprint towards potential kidney failure/death.

  • If your dog has to have induced-vomiting, the vet will count the grapes as they come up. If their count is low compared to your estimate, they may induce a second round of vomiting to ensure they are all removed from your dog’s system.

  • Post-vomiting, your vet may also give your dog doses of activated charcoal to help soa

The police guarding discarded food reminds me of a quote from The Grapes of Wrath

> The works of the roots of the vines, of the trees, must be destroyed to keep up the price, and this is the saddest, bitterest thing of all. Carloads of oranges dumped on the ground. The people came for miles to take the fruit, but this could not be. How would they buy oranges at twenty cents a dozen if they could drive out and pick them up? And men with hoses squirt kerosene on the oranges, and they are angry at the crime, angry at the people who have come to take the fruit. A million people hungry, needing the fruit - and kerosene sprayed over the golden mountains. And the smell of rot fills the country. Burn coffee for fuel in the ships. Burn corn to keep warm, it makes a hot fire. Dump potatoes in the rivers and place guards along the banks to keep the hungry people from fishing them out. Slaughter the pigs and bury them, and let the putrescence drip down into the earth.

> There is a crime here that goes beyond denunciation.

> There is a sorrow here that weeping cannot symbolize.

> There is a failure here that topples all our success.

> The fertile earth, the straight tree rows, the sturdy trunks, and the ripe fruit. And children dying of pellagra must die because a profit cannot be taken from an orange. And coroners must fill in the certificate - died of malnutrition - because the food must rot, must be forced to rot. The people come with nets to fish for potatoes in the river, and the guards hold them back; they come in rattling cars to get the dumped oranges, but the kerosene is sprayed. And they stand still and watch the potatoes float by, listen to the screaming pigs being killed in a ditch and covered with quick-lime, watch the mountains of oranges slop down to a putrefying ooze; and in the eyes of the people there is the failure; and in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing wrath. In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.

  • John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

KB’s New Grape Therapy Episode- Kink Shaming

Did anyone listen to her new Grape Therapy episode? Jason & her were discussing role play. Kailtyn was super close minded saying Ew and that it was so weird. Even went on to say if you role play something is wrong with your relationship, didn’t let Jason explain it to her. Mostly everyone in her facebook group is saying that what she said was not okay. Let’s see if she posts an apology.

EDIT: She has apologized in OTV FB group:

Guys I’m so sorry. Clearly it was my own insecurities leading my vision of role playing. I had no idea it would turn into nasty dms. I wasn’t saying ew as in Ew to you. I was saying ew to the thought of Jason thinking fo someone else because guess what. I WAS WRONG About role play. I didn’t know enough about it. I’m so sorry. I’m always so scared for my OTV fam to be upset with me. Keeps me up at night sometimes so this is killing me!’ So I will now get a sex expert on to help me understand better. I’m sorry 😞

THEN SHE COMMENTED IN THE THREAD:

It’s so scary getting things wrong with all of you listening and im sorry
