testimony of lee sun-ok (via plastic)

They say it is a day of great fortune if a prisoner finds a rat creeping up from the bottom of the toilet hole. The prisoners catch it with their bare hands and devour it raw, as rats are the only source of meat in the prison. They say the wonderful taste of a raw rat is unforgettable. If they are caught eating a rat, however, the punishment is extended. So they have to be very careful when catching and eating a rat.

I've served a Band-Aid in red-skin mashed potatoes. [Everyone screams.] And you couldn't see it, you know, because the potatoes had all those little pink bits everywhere, and this guy's chewing on a Band-Aid. It was a restaurant in Chicago, a snooty French restaurant. It was kind of hard to make it up to the guy who was, like, sucking on this bloody Band-Aid, thinking it was potato skin.

"strange matters" by tom siegfried (via scitech)

In the fourth century B.C., the Greek philosopher Democritus postulated the existence of atoms, indivisible particles of matter that formed the basis of all reality. Although none of his writings have survived, many of his views were taken up and refined by Epicurus and his followers. Ancient atomic theory reached its zenith in Rome shortly before the birth of Christ, when Lucretius published his magnum opus, "De rerum natura "("On the Nature of Things"), possibly the only epic poem about theoretical physics. Two millennia later, some of the 20th century's greatest scientific minds, including a young Albert Einstein, finally succeeded in conclusively establishing the existence of atoms. Of course, the particles turned out to be rather different from Democritus' conception, but the episode remains one of the most remarkable stories in the history of ideas.

'the pursuit of oblivion': drug taking as part of human nature by richard davenport-hines (via scitech)

In a sunless room in Bengal in the 1670's, a group of English sailors enacted a scene that would, in spirit, be repeated in basements, bedrooms and alleys of the Western world for centuries. First, they each swallowed a pint of bhang, a local drink. One of the sailors then sat and sobbed all afternoon, another began a fistfight with a wooden pillar, yet another inserted his head inside a large jar. The rest sat about or lolled upon the floor. They were completely stoned.

gil gerard

He attended the University of Arkansas but drooped out before graduation. He landed a job as an industrial chemist. He became regional manager of a large chemical company headed by governor Wynn Rockefeller in a few years. His employers said they would name him the firm's vice president if he went for his master's degree so he quit rather than tell everyone that he didn't have a college diploma.

Fed up with the racist harrasment, culminating with her learning that the studio was withholding her fan mail, she submitted her resignation. She withdrew it when Martin Luther King personally convinced her that her role was too important as a breakthrough to leave.
