Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

This is all incredibly important, some cities have as little as 60 -120 days left.  Try using a refillable water container, and if you’re a California resident, make sure to report water waste in public spaces.

Also, maybe take a second and sign the petition to stop a giant Slip n’ slide from being built in Los Angeles. Priorities.

…an ode to 1970s skater girls. 

this is amazing

How do you do a post on 1970s female skateboarders and not include Peggy Oki?

Rest in Peace to skateboarding pioneer and super hero Jay Adams. We owe a lot to Jay for taking skateboarding vertical in backyard pools and pushing the limits of what was possible during skateboarding’s formative years. You’re a legend Jay, you will be missed!

I’m not a skater, but I grew up in a town where skateboarding is very important. I mean, one of the major skateboard brands is named after my hometown. My friends and I loved Dogtown and Z-Boys and I remember rushing downtown after school to see Lords of Dogtown the day it came out. We took up almost a whole row. Most of us were particularly attached to Jay’s story. I rarely think about skateboarding anymore, but I literally gasped when I heard this news. Another sad day in what has been a dreadful week. RIP Jay Adams.

does anyone else feel like they just lost their favourite uncle

So mild TMI but this weekend my boyfriend and I were making out and I gradually realized he was humming “God Bless America”.

People who apply description words to an entire group based only on one shared characteristic—sexuality, race, gender, etc.—shouldn’t be allowed to use even a plastic knife. Those are spoon-only people.
