After my absent-mindedness resulted in a bad posterboard-related stomachache, I learned to do the sign-making place last.

Apparently something happened in early November.

The person who created the chart says "I tracked all mentions of ‘fuck’ on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, blogs, comments, forums and in the news using a tool called Netbase, which is a very powerful tool when it comes to monitoring social media."

Derangement

2 Comments and 14 Shares

The entirety of the Trump transition team’s response to the extraordinary news that the CIA believes Russia interfered with the election with the intention of helping Trump win:

These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and “Make America Great Again.”

Put aside that every single word of that statement is false. (It was George W. Bush’s White House that claimed to be convinced that Iraq had WMDs, not CIA intelligence officers. The election was only a month ago — we’re still closer to election day than we are to Trump’s first day in office. Trump lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes and his Electoral College win ranks 46th out of 58 in history.) Put aside that the statement doesn’t even claim the report is false — the implication is that it doesn’t matter whether or not Russia interfered in a U.S. election to help one side, when, clearly, anyone with an interest in ours being an honest democracy would call for a thorough and immediate investigation of these claims.

That’s a lot to put aside. But here’s the best part. One of the people who did claim in 2002 that Iraq had stockpiled hidden weapons of mass destruction was John R. Bolton, then Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. Today comes news that Trump’s team is considering nominating Bolton to be Deputy Secretary of State.

So within the span of a breath, Trump’s team is claiming that the people who claimed Iraq had WMDs in 2002 have no credibility on matters of foreign intelligence, and are thinking about nominating one of them as second-in-command at the State Department.

Cuisinart Recalls 8.3 Million Food Processor Blades Dating Back To 1996

5 Comments and 12 Shares

When using the whirling blades of a food processor to prepare a meal, you assume that the common kitchen appliance is not going to put shards of its steel blades in your food, causing you pain and injury. Yet Cuisinart has recalled 8.3 million food processors in the United States and Canada that pose a risk of exactly that kind of problem.

That’s not a typo: the total really is 8 million. Conair, owner of the Cuisinart brand, is recalling food processors with riveted blades that the company sold between July 1996 and December 2015.

The company told the Consumer Product Safety Commission that it has received 69 reports of blades shattering in action, including 30 reported injuries to the teeth and mouths of people eating food from affected food processors.

Here’s a list of affected models, but you can also simply check the blade and look for four rivets that hold the two blades together. Does it resemble the photo at the top of this post? If it does, you’ll probably need to send away for a replacement blade.

Affected models: CFP-9, CFP-11, DFP-7, DFP-11, DFP-14, DLC-5, DLC-7, DLC-8, DLC-10, DLC-XP, DLC-2007, DLC-2009, DLC-2011, DLC-2014, DLC-3011, DLC-3014, EV-7, EV-10, EV-11, EV-14, KFP-7 and MP-14

If you have questions about the recall or to get your replacement blade, visit the recall site (which is down right now, at least from Consumerist HQ) or call Conair at 877-339-2534.

The magic/nutri-bullet blender does the same thing, but I don't think there's been a recall. All that iron in your smoothie isn't just from kale

yup. besides the confusing first question at https://recall.cuisinart.com/ the process to request a replacement blade went smoothly.

All the Ads in This London Tube Station Were Just Replaced with Cat Photos

6 Comments and 19 Shares

Clapham Common Tube station in London is looking very feline today. After a very successful tongue-in-cheek Kickstarter campaign, the so-called Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) has managed to replace 68 advertisements in the station with … cat photos.

When we first reported on the Kickstarter campaign, we weren’t entirely sure this silly-but-kind-of-awesome idea was ever going to come to fruition. One very successful crowdfunding campaign and £23,000 later, we have our answer.

This morning, commuters at the Clapham Common Tube station in London were greeted, not by ads, but by cat photos. Every ticket gateway, 54 escalator panels, and 14 large posters at the station have been replaced, and passers-by (at least the ones that noticed the strange takeover) have been busy taking pictures and smiling at the wonderful incongruence of it all.

The ‘initiative’ is the first project by Glimpse, a new collective which aims to use creativity for good. And Glimpse founder James Turner explains why Cats Not Ads was the perfect first-project:

We tried to imagine a world where public spaces made you feel good. We hope people will enjoy being in the station and maybe think a bit differently about the world around them.

Instead of asking you to buy something, we’re asking you to think about what’s really valuable in your life. It might not be cats, but it’s probably something you can’t find in the shops.

What’s more, many of the animals featured are stray cats from two rescue charities: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, and Cats Protection. So if even one of these stray cats is adopted, there’s some tangible good coming from this project as well.

Glimpse is already planning its next takeover, and taking suggestions over at CatsNotAds.org. No real surprise the next frontrunner is currently “dogs.”
