Al-Jazeera Says Not Wanting to Eat Insects is Racist

Because Christopher Columbus, or something.

Published

on

According to Al Jazeera, not wanting to eat insects is racist because Christopher Columbus said it was a trait of “savages”.

Yes, really.

Al-Jazeera’s Yara Elmjouie put out a video entitled ‘Why bugs are the protein of the future’ in which he claims that westerners have a fear of edible insects because “European colonizers demonized indigenous people as “savages” for eating insects.”

“Those early racist characterizations played a part in forming later conceptions of insects as “disgusting,” tweeted Elmjouie.

“Edible bugs are seen as sustainable protein, receiving even the UN’s blessing,” wrote Elmjouie, citing a 2013 UN report that “promotes insects as a sustainable high-protein food.”

“Over 2 billion people eat insects around the world today. So…let’s also think about reframing our past, and chart a new course toward a future that’s fully liberated from those early colonizers’ misinformed worldviews,” he added.

Gross. I am not eating bugs.

As we highlighted yesterday, VICE gave a sympathetic platform to people who enjoy the fetish of including insects in their sex play, including literally putting worms up their penis.

The progressive utopia is you sitting alone, atomized, in a converted sewer pipe pod eating bugs while crying in front of your only companion which is an emotional support pig.

No thanks.

Kanye West: “They Want to Put Chips Inside of Us”

Kanye West gave a wild interview to Forbes in which he asserted that vaccines were “the mark of the beast” and that the true agenda behind them was a plot to “put chips inside of us.”

Much of the media coverage of the interview centered on the rapper’s supposed distancing of himself from President Trump after Kanye stated, “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.”

However, his other comments were significantly more incendiary.

Kanye revealed that he contracted coronavirus in February but that he wouldn’t take a vaccine if one was produced because it would represent “the mark of the beast.”

“They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven,” said the singer, adding that this was “the saddest thing.”

While supposedly walking back his support for Trump, Kanye did describe him as the “closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”

Over the weekend, Kanye announced that he was running for president this year, although many reacted by suggesting that this was merely a stunt to promote his album.

The rapper denied this, asserting, “I give my album away for free.”

Life In A Pod: The New Normal

Plastic pods are going up everywhere

If you want to go out socialising from now on, you’ll likely be doing it in a plastic pod. This isn’t some weird dystopia, it’s the new normal in 2020.

“Transparent corrals for beach-goers. Dining pods. Clear boxes for students. The demand for plexiglass protective shields has never been higher.” Announced the Wall Street Journal this week:

They’re not weird at all, they’re “stylish”:

Meanwhile, in England:

Enjoy your next meal in a ‘perspex dining bubble’:

Or a ‘luxury dining pod’ if you prefer:

It’s an “experience” alright:

In London you can enjoy a lovely view of The Barad-dûr The shard from your pod:

How about your own greenhouse to bake yourself in:

Or your own shed:

They’re not fucking weird, they’re just “quirky”:

It’s the future, and it’s “podtastic”:

What the fuck is this?

Some saw this coming:

Next up, portable pods?

Already happening:

Or…

1962 ‘Life in 2022’ Image Depicted Everyone Trapped in Pods

Not far off?

Published

on

A depiction of life in 2022 by an Italian magazine first published in 1962 depicted pedestrians using motorized pods instead of walking, something that may turn out to be quite accurate given current fears over coronavirus.

The image was drawn by Walter Molino, an Italian comics artist and illustrator. It featured on the front page of a 1962 edition of La Domenica del Corriere, an Italian weekly newspaper which ran from 1899 to 1989.

The cartoon shows individuals navigating the sidewalk from within the confines of their own personal pod.

While the depiction was probably more of a pedestrian travel-related prediction, it meshes quite eerily with current fears over coronavirus, which has led to suggestions that the “new normal” must incorporate a similar pod-based lifestyle to protect against the virus, because apparently immune systems don’t function anymore.

As the video below shows, a restaurant in the Netherlands is trialing individual greenhouse-style pods where diners eat in “safety” as their waiter brings them their food on a long board while wearing a head visor and a mask.

What happens in summer when the glorified greenhouses reach near oven temperatures was not discussed in the video.

Proposals for people to be ensconced within their own pods for air travel, trips to the beach and other activities have also emerged in recent weeks.

Live in a pod, work in a pod, socialize in a pod, travel in a pod!
