Why eating insects makes sense
"Look, I know how tough it is for you to say good-bye, so I’ll say it. Maybe you’re right. Maybe we will see each other again. But just in case we don’t… I want you to know how much you’ve meant to me. I’ll never be able to shake you." - Hawkeye Pierce
Tell me again why a women’s liberation movement is no longer needed.
Dear “I don’t need feminism” crowd…
“The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday stood by its ruling that a dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair. Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender." [x]

Audrey Hepburn Gets A Haircut As Cameras Roll in The Nun's Story
"If she had been 10 years younger, she would have cried. But Audrey Hepburn, being a mature and modern young woman, didn’t even wince much when her hair was shorn for the final scenes in "The Nun’s Story."
In her role of a Belgian girl who becomes a nursing nun, the hair cutting is part of the ritual as the girl prepares to don her habit as a novice. Director Fred Zinnemann scheduled the Warner Brothers picture so that the very last scene was with the shears.
And in order to make sure that the job was done properly and authentically, the director put Audrey’s personal hairdresser in the habit of a nun to do the cutting in the scene. After the scene, the hairdresser made a few additional trimmings and considerable arrangements, and Audrey emerged looking for all the world like a young woman with fashionable short hair.” May 27, 1959.
