So we were at a red light and since I can no longer drive past a food truck without checking it out, thanks to @copperbadge, I made F go around the block so I confirm that was what that said… and yup. I don’t know who thought
Vlad the Impaler would make people Hungary, but I giggled. 

Ahahahaha, I see what you did there. Hungary for Transylvanian food! 

It would be even funnier if the truck’s cuisine was garlic-themed. 

And on sticks.

OH MY GOD WHAT IF IT WAS A KEBAB TRUCK

It’s not QUITE that on the nose, but according to the truck’s website (They’re based out of Christchurch, New Zealand) they sell
kürtős kalács

- which they translate as chimney cake. It’s a sort of spit cake that’s a thing in Eastern Europe - wrap some dough around a pole and bake while constantly turning. You get a cylinder of pastry.

And You Tube helpfully provides a visual

Ahh, these look amazing. I WANT ONE. 

oh my god I had about a million of these when I was in Budapest and they are HEAVEN. You can get them covered in cinnamon sugar, or toffee, or nuts, or chocolate, and just…it’s like a spiral doughnut that’s a little cripy on the outside and soft in the middle and seriously. Best street food. I really want more places to sell it.

Standing in solidarity with Standing Rock and the struggle to stop the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The DAPL is a proposed crude pipeline which crosses treaty territories, threatening the Missouri River, impacting immediately Cannonball, North Dakota of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. We have created this poster to amplify the message of the water protectors and land defenders. We are selling a limited number of posters so we can fundraise resources to buy more paper and ink to produce more posters for distribution in the Bay Area as well as sending hundreds of posters out to Standing Rock.

Please prioritize sending financial support the Sacred Stone Camp from the Standing Sioux Tribe. You can donate to the camp fund at http://ift.tt/2aE7Olu 

There is also a legal fund they are asking for donations for http://ift.tt/2bcJI3t

Did you know that after they switched to blind auditions, major symphony orchestras hired women between 30% to 55% more? Before bringing in “blind auditions” with a screen to conceal the the candidate, women in the top 5 major orchestras made up less than 5% of the musicians performing.

so I believe it was actually more complicated than that, in interesting ways. Because at first, when they did blind auditions, they were STILL hiring more men.

…Then they put down a carpet, so that high heels didn’t clack on the floor,  and BOOM women were suddenly getting hired.

The testers didn’t even know that’s what they were picking up on, which just goes to show how tiny of a cue it takes for misogyny to kick in.

The case of blind auditions for orchestras and how it dramatically changed the gender makeup of orchestras is a very illuminating example of gender bias, and an interesting possible way of countering it.
