On Not That Kind of Death: An Interview With Caitlin Doughty

@Jolie Kerr Don't worry, Jolie! Your nails don't actually grow after death! That's just your skin retracting from the nail bed that makes them look longer.

On Riding the Staten Island Ferry for the Sake of Riding of the Staten Island Ferry on a Wednesday Afternoon

Let me tell you about the Staten Island Shuffle, which me and my friends often partake in:

1. Get on Staten Island ferry in Manhattan. Board and immediately get a oil can of Fosters. (It's $4!!!) Stand outside and drink the oil can. You MUST drink it all before you get to Staten Island or the boat will sink.

2. Get off at Staten Island. Immediately turn around and get on the next boat. Board and order Fosters. Go outside. Drink it all before you get to Manhattan.

On Here's the First Trailer for The Giver

Yeah, why ISN'T it in black and white? I always thought a film version should be in b&w and colors are gradually added as Jonah seems them more (the apple flashing, Fiona's hair). Kind of a bummer :/

On Seven Irish Women You Should Know

@Lucienne She wrote an autobiography if that's of interest to you! I haven't read any of the others on Maud listed here (though I've done a LOT of Yeats reading). Women of the Golden Dawn looks very interesting; I may look into that one myself.

On Do the Irish bottle their emotions?

@Michelle Markowitz I mean, are there A LOT of Irish dudes hanging around Sunnyside? Because I live in Astoria and could EASILY spend a lot more time there.
