I am sure someone has asked you this before, but I would LOVE for you to do a Classic Films 101 post with a list of maybe your 20 top films for the uninitiated? There are SO many I feel like I should watch, but I don't know where to begin. Plus it can link back to all these amazing classic Hollywood stars posts.
Thanks to Jane for the graphic images warning/avoidance info! I love short films and stories like this are always absolutely amazing, but am the biggest wuss and get a bit queasy with some stuff, so I appreciate when I can just shut my eyes for anything gory.
I looked into this a while ago, after the internet promised me it'd be helpful and solve all of my problems (& more!). However, I'm ultimately glad I didn't because it is one of the most restrictive diets, with extremely little solid proof behind it. I don't think I can get on the bandwagon of anything that makes you cut out a whole swathe of fruit and veg - that's my hard limit. A good, varied diet with lots of fresh stuff and acknowledging what you're eating and what you can handle is the best bet.
@Bloodrocuted I totally don't understand the bacteria angle - you're only switching it between the insides of the eggshell, which it was already chilling out in until you cracked it haha, but I accept all the other arguments for the bottle method. It is super cool, but I was mainly just curious because I'd never really found it an issue!
@keristars But wouldn't you get shell in the bowl then? I'm not sure that this solves shell fragment issues! :(
@harebell But you also dirty an extra bowl, which is way more incentive for me to just go shell-style.
Isn't it simpler just to do it in the shell, by switching it between the halves so the white falls away? I've never had any problems doing that, but I guess if you screw it up this can be your fallback to grab the yolk out.

Super powerful piece and I think it deals with this topic in an incredibly brave and logical way. There are millions of ways in which I, the person I know today, would never have been born and the decision to terminate or not to terminate by a mother is only one in a huge chain of chances and happenings. It doesn't take away from the value of a person's life for them to acknowledge these chances and attempt to objectively as possible assess the situation. Not every woman wants to or can be a mother and forcing a child upon someone doesn't magically make them capable, especially with the lack of support in our community.
@OhShesArtsy Oh my god. Shower worms. That is a nightmare come to life. I think my feet have tried to shrivel into little balls to escape. As a girl, I hated the idea of standing on shower floors/tiles that were wet/public pools etc. You get the idea. I think I was paranoid about fungus, but at home I'd always have a little flannel I put down to stand on. One for washing, one to keep my feet safe. I don't know, but shower worms bring back all of those feelings and more.
@Yahtzii I had the pleasure of writing a paper on that film. Definitely an iconic Aussie film, which is terrible and wonderful all at once.
