Say Cheese! - Gastropod
The real dawn of cheese came about 8,500 years ago, with two simultaneous developments in human history. First, by then, over-intensive agricultural practices had depleted the soil, leading to the first human-created environmental disaster. As a result, Neolithic humans began herding goats and sheep more intensely, as those animals could survive on marginal lands unfit for crops. And secondly, humans invented pottery: the original practical milk-collection containers.

In the warm environment of the Fertile Crescent region, Kinstedt explained, any milk not used immediately and instead left to stand in those newly invented containers "would have very quickly, in a matter of hours, coagulated [due to the heat and the natural lactic acid bacteria in the milk]. And at some point, probably some adventurous adult tried some of the solid material and found that they could tolerate it a lot more of it than they could milk.” That's because about 80 percent of the lactose drains off with the whey, leaving a digestible and, likely, rather delicious fresh cheese.

[Spoilers E65] Liam O'Brien AMA : criticalrole
I also want to touch on the chatter I see now and again claiming Vax leads Gilmore on. While I understand the audience’s love of their relationship, and I am just as fond of Matt’s performance as Gilmore as the rest of you are, I simply don’t agree.

I have seen people online say “Vax is always doing stuff like kissing him after ending things, or flying him into the air. As far as I can tell, those are the ONLY two things to point to. That’s it. There is never any other example. And while those are both bitter sweet moments in the story, I have my reasons for both.

The kiss. When closing the book on a possible romantic relationship with Gilmore, it was very important to Vax that the man know he was never faking anything, and that his affections were real. The kiss was meant to prove that, as well as say goodbye to what might have been. Again, maybe you disagree, but for Vax, very important.

Now. The flying. Everyone fixates on what Vax did, but no one pays much attention to what Gilmore did. When Vax went with the armor asking questions, Gilmore didn’t offer a simple explanation and tell him he could use the Deathwalker’s Ward to fly. If that had happened, that moment would never have occurred. But it didn’t. Vax got shoved off a cliff.

Go on a little thought experiment with me here. If someone pushed you off a cliff (not your D&D character, YOU), and you plummeted 500, 1000, 1500 feet to certain death, you mind screaming in terror in a span of 3 seconds…. And 50 feet from smashing into the ground, you sprouted a pair of wings, and then flew 1000, 1500, 3000 feet in the air- full of relief, adrenaline, dopamine(?), hysteria, and the sheer wonder of flight… do you honestly think it makes no sense to fly toward the person who knowingly caused that 8 seconds of insanity and impulsively snatch them into the sky?

Ideal? Probably not. But I would argue its understandable, given the circumstances. It’s nothing Vax would have ever calmly decided to do. But after Gilmore's shock and awe flying lesson?

Afterward, Vax was very aware of how Gilmore took it. And has been careful with his friend.

The reason I spent so much time on this one, is because I am very fond of the threads of story between Gilmore and Vax, and the moments Matt and I have improvised together. I love that this relationship exists in our game of dice and fantasy. And it is as important to me as it is to the audience, if not more so.

Who are some of the famous people who are into BDSM? - Quora
One thing you have to be aware of, when talking about celebrities and BDSM, is that there's a big difference between looking like you're into BDSM and actually practicing BDSM.

If you're a young singer and want to move beyond bubble-gum pop, or you're an actor who wants to court edgier roles, then there are numerous examples of kink makeovers that are designed to get ink in the press. It works too.

Opinion | I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration - The New York Times
The erratic behavior would be more concerning if it weren’t for unsung heroes in and around the White House. Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing, though they are clearly not always successful.

It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t.

The result is a two-track presidency.

Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations.

Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals.

“Princess Qajar” and the Problem with Junk History Memes | A Bit of History
In their own time, ‘Esmat and Taj were not defined by their appearance. Their accomplishments were not the result of either setting or copying cultural standards of beauty. They were women of merit and substance whose stories deserve to be told and perpetuated in a respectful and meaningful way, not diminished and ridiculed.

In writing of the women of the Qajar court, like ‘Esmat and Taj, whose pictures hold so much historical meaning and significance, Dr. Scheiwiller poignantly wrote, “The photograph of oneself was able to transform one from being meaningless, whose story would not be told, to one of a face etched in time.”[12]

It would be a travesty to sit back and let a fatuous meme mar the true beauty and historical importance of these women and their images.
