On Wash Your Clothes, You Filthy Animals

@catwithglasses Everything I'm wearing is far from brand-new, and yet I'm still grossed out by my own choices.
I used to be really good at washing new clothes, I swear! I got spooked by that urban legend/maybe true story about those girls who got really sick from wearing new jeans that had been shipped in the same truck as, like, livestock or something.

Speaking of which, I ordered like four new pairs of jeans on Saturday! :D

@hangnail if you really do want to contribute, the Hairpin Travel Series might still be available for download! I forget the details but I bet it'd be easy to look up. A bunch of exclusive essays for a really good price - I think it was like $3?

On Famous People It Took Me Way Too Long To Realize Are Not the Same Person

Two sets of people that apparently lots of people do not know are not the same, and like I don't understand how you can't tell them apart:

Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley
Laurence Fishburne and Samuel L. Jackson.

Now, I know they're similar in age, and Portman and Knightley both have bone structure and stuff, and Fishburne and Jackson both made a lot of movies in the same time period and have tooth gaps, but they look nothing alike! Am I the only person who sees this?

@Kate Harlin@facebook True Detective was my epiphany, the thing that made me realize that I know which is which. I feel enlightened now.

@Danger Zone Neil Simon and that other playwright, to the point that I'm not even sure what his name is.

Jeff Goldblum and John Leguizamo, but that was mostly because I constantly forgot Jeff Goldblum's name.

@Jazmine Hughes They look alike but do not act in the same way.
