"The effort by Ms. Harris to address the root causes of migration, which can take years, is..."

".... unlikely to quickly produce the swift action demanded by Republicans and some Democrats to reduce the overcrowding at the border."From (NYT).The "root causes" language is a reference to something Harris said: "While we are clear that people should not come to the border now, we also understand that we will enforce the law. We also — because we can chew gum and walk at the same time — must address the root causes that cause people to make the trek."Walking and chewing gum at the same time...

The Real Reason You Shouldn't Swallow Your Gum

Rumor has it that if you swallow chewing gum, it will stay lodged in your gut for seven years—a bezoar minus the magical poison-curing properties. Of course, as we’ve told you before, this isn’t true. But that doesn’t mean you have license to swallow your gum willy-nilly—or spit it on the ground, for that matter. The…Read more...

The Story Behind Every Song On GUM’s New Album Out In The World

You could never question Jay Watson's psych-rock bona fides. The man's resume, of course, includes Tame Impala, the band that implausibly made the leap from being weirdo hallucinogenic rockers from western Australia to arena-conquerors worldwide. But all along the way, Watson also played in Pond, Tame's sister band. And alongside that, he's been putting out … More »

GUM – “Out In The World”

GUM, aka Tame Impala member Jay Watson, is back today with his first song since 2018's The Underdog. The new one's called "Out In The World." Although existing adjacent to The Slow Rush's psychedelic retro dance party, its gleaming arpeggios, "Billie Jean" backbeat, and airy falsetto also have me imagining a world in … More »

Sequencing an anciet girl's genome from a 5,700-year-old piece of chewing gum

Almost 6,000 years ago on the island of Lolland, Denmark, a young girl disposed of her chewing gum. Now, University of Copenhagen researchers have used that gum, made from birch pitch, to sequence the girl's full genome. From Science: The child had black hair, blue eyes, and dark skin, and was more closely related to hunter-gatherers from Western Europe than to farmers who had more recently settled in the region. She left traces of her most recent meal in the gum—she had been chewing hazel...

"Not so long ago, the big, ambitious social novel, the novel that wanted to tell us about 'the way we live now' or 'the state of the nation'..."

"... enjoyed a prestige and cultural centrality that, in recent years, have come to seem distinctly suspect. Looking increasingly through the lens of identity, some critics have begun to see the universalizing impulse behind such books — their belief in their ability to write across differences of race and class and gender — as presumptuous if not outright aggressive, a kind of epistemological gate-crashing (especially when the author is a well-off white man). One result of this development is t...

Shoe made of gum found on the street

If you’ve been looking for a sustainable alternative to your regular footwear, these shoes may be for you. Gumshoe is the first-ever shoe made from recycled chewing gum. Anna Bullus is the British designer at the heart of the chewing gum recycling movement. She found that chewing gum is made from synthetic rubber similar to plastic that could be turned into a new material called Gumtec to create new objects. She founded Gumdrop and launched gum bins all over the UK to facilitate the recyclin...

The Tuesday NYT crossword puzzle had a "trigger warning" theme with answers — like "bazooka bubblegum" — that began with guns, and the regular crossword-puzzle columnist at the NYT refused to blog it!

The crossword editor, Will Shortz, took over:There was a behind-the-scenes discussion regarding Peter Gordon’s crossword, which is why I’m writing about it rather than Deb Amlen, the Wordplay editor.She was so disenchanted with the puzzle’s gun theme — especially in this era of widespread violence — that she didn’t feel she could give it a fair write-up. [This is true. I believe that this puzzle will be upsetting to some people because of its timing, subject matter and revealer, and did not thin...

Handwritten notes dispensed by an ATM machine "Please help. I’m stuck in here..."

It took a while before a note recipient took it seriously. Unsurprisingly, several ATM users regarded it as a joke and did nothing. But a man really was trapped inside (for hours). (NYT.)It's like the ancient joke of getting a fortune cookie with the message "Help! I'm trapped in a fortune cookie factory."Know Your Memes has a piece on "Help I'm Trapped in a Factory":“Help I’m Trapped in a Factory” is a phrasal template used in satirical pleas for help claiming to be stuck inside a factory that ...

Why Chewing Sounds Make You Want to Flip a Table

The snapping of gum. The slurping of soup (*shudders*). If you, like me, have misophonia, these sounds are more than merely annoying—they’re rage-inducing. Being trapped in a room of snappers and slurpers is enough to make us walk away or set ourselves on fire.Read more...

A single line on a back page of Bob Dylan's website was the sole indication from his side that he sees he's won the Nobel Prize literature.

That was in the news yesterday, and we talked about it here. But now that line is expunged:The simple words “winner of the Nobel prize in literature”, which appeared on the page for The Lyrics: 1961-2012, have now been removed. Bob Dylan, Nobel laureate, is once again plain Bob Dylan.Dylan... has always stepped away from attempts to corral him into being something he does not want to be.In 1965, at the height of his fevered elevation from singer to spokesman for a generation, he was asked at a S...

#SIMPLYGUM Review {Kosher, Non GMO, Vegan, Gluten & Xylitol Free!}

Press Sample The regular chewing gum you see on grocery store shelves is filled with artificial substances, including some of the same components used in the manufacture of car tires, plastic bottles, and white glue, as well as artificial sweeteners like aspartame. EWWW!  I always noticed regular gum upset my stomach. I couldn’t figure out why, but avoided it at all costs. Now, I know, it’s because of the sweeteners. My stomach can’t process it correctly which leaves me unhappy and hurting. T...
