Could This Be the End of Paul Simon’s Rhymin’? - The New York Times
“I was 21, maybe 22, when I wrote ‘The Sound of Silence,’ which seems to me like quite a big jump from where I was before that,” he said. “And why or where, I have no idea. I thought the same thing when I wrote ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ —whoa, that song is better than what I’ve been doing. Different chords and something special about it. The same feeling with ‘Graceland,’ and ‘Still Crazy After All These Years.’”

The Food Lab: A Mind-Blowing Technique for Cleaning Deep-Fry Oil Using Gelatin
Here's the short of it: You can use gelatin to filter cruddy used deep-frying oil until it is crystal clear. The technique is easier than any other method I know, requiring no wire strainers or coffee filters or extensive clean-up.

"No?" Matt had asked, and scratched at the half-healed scab along his ribs. "I dunno, it seemed like - cheating, I guess? I never needed one, nobody ever complained."

"Oh my god," Foggy said. "Cheating. Yeah, like fire is cheating? I mean, Matt, this is tragic, I guess we could still eat our meat raw off - animal bones, sure, whatever, but a steak is so much better than raw meat."

Candy Land - ChuckleVoodoos - Daredevil (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Matt is having fun with this, at least in some way. Sucking on Life Savers and smirking, and no guilt at all. If Matt could feel guilt, none of this would be happening. Things might be okay again.

But he doesn’t, and this is what Foggy is left with: a candy-stained mouth and a creature that’s more devil than man.

And Foggy still loves him.

Eres Mi Grande Avocado - ChuckleVoodoos - Daredevil (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Matt's got this way of speaking in Spanish that's just a little different than his way of speaking in English. In English, all of Matt's words are carefully weighed and measured and cut like crystal. They're precious but planned. With Spanish, the words seem to fall like drops of liquid gold, hot and rich and wild, and it makes Foggy want to gather them to himself and finally be warm.

I Decided This - patster223 - Daredevil (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m contributing yet another lovely sign to our office,” Foggy says, brandishing the finished product with a flourish. Matt can’t see the sign, but he can probably sense the flourish, which is what matters. “It says, ‘It has been ‘0’ days since Matt made an idiotic decision.’”

“Doesn’t seem like it will inspire much trust from our clients.”

What the sign instead inspires: debates, understanding, a patented Murdock-level guilt trip, ice cream celebrations, a kiss, and perhaps even ...

What's Yours Done This Week? - Kryptaria - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Every superhero has a sidekick. A best friend. A lover. An innocent bystander who gets caught up in the chaos. Maybe they become superheroes themselves. Maybe they just learn to deal with their superhero's crap.

Whatever the case, there's one thing they need: people who understand what they're going through.

Google is adding new ways to track you for ads, but it’s letting you call the shots - Recode
Since it began, Google has kept the vast amount of user data it tracks in silos. Information gathered from users while signed into Google accounts — searches, YouTube videos watched — was kept separate from data on web pages and apps visited.

It’s a way for Google to get ahead of the growth in ad-blocking. By building the feature opt-in, it’s also a way for Google to combat criticism of its privacy practices.

With it, Google is rolling out a new site called My Activity, an extension of My Account, the personal privacy user hub it introduced last year. The new site lets you see all your Google activity — your searches, videos, web history, Android activity (if you have one) and so on — and zap certain records from one portal. (You had to do this in multiple places before.)

Gum Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease May Be Linked
brain tissue samples donated by 10 patients without dementia and 10 patients with dementia.They found gum disease bacteria lipopolysaccharides (the surface of the bacterium) in the sample from four of the people with dementia and none of the people who did not have dementia. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through everyday activities such as eating, chewing and toothbrushing. Once in the bloodstream, the bacteria can be carried to other parts of the body.

we knew the hands of the devil - grimm
Derek will never forget the sound Stiles makes when the alphas take him.

It's small, so soft a human never would have caught it, but to Derek it's as loud as cannon fire; a quick, panicked intake of air that's not a shout, not a scream. It's desperate and frightened and almost Derek's name and it hurts him to the core. Derek roars as Kali lifts Stiles off the bed, the boy struggling against her hold like an oversized doll come to life. Derek fights against the twins, red mist boiling in his vision, fury and terror pumping through his veins.

"Say goodbye, Derek," Kali says softly, triumphantly. "You'll never see him again."
