WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
Here’s some articles on the subject:
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!
YES THIS IS ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT
The bodies of two Tampa teenagers were discovered Thursday morning on a roadside in Duval County.Angelia Mangum, 19, and Tjhisha Ball, 18, were found about 1 a.m., according to law enforcement. A witness told Jacksonville news station WJAX the teenagers were bound with zip ties and lying on top of one another."Two witnesses were driving by and they saw bodies and they called 911," Sgt. T.K. Waters told news station WJXT.Officers were dispatched to Sisson Drive, near the intersection of Main Street North and Clark Road.Investigators suspect foul play and are trying to determine the causes of death."They were in an area where they would have been noticed, so I think it was fairly recently since they’d been left there,” Waters also told WJXT.A medical examiner has taken the bodies to determine the cause of death."I just don’t understand what happened," Ball’s sister, Crystal Moore, said.According to Moore, both women had been living in the Jacksonville area off and on for approximately a year and a half."I feel like sometimes that I failed," Ball’s mother, Jerlean Moore, said. "What could I have done? What could I have taught her better? It hurts…it really hurts."It’s a pain that’s only worsened by the fact that no one has been caught.

More than 3,300 years ago, in a newly built city in Egypt, a woman with an incredibly elaborate hairstyle of lengthy hair extensions was laid to rest.
She was not mummified, her body simply being wrapped in a mat. When archaeologists uncovered her remains they found she wore “a very complex coiffure with approximately 70 extensions fastened in different layers and heights on the head,” writes Jolanda Bos, an archaeologist working on the Amarna Project, in an article recently published in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology.
Researchers don’t know her name, age or occupation, but she is one of hundreds of people, including many others whose hairstyles are still intact, who were buried in a cemetery near an ancient city now called Amarna.
She had a weave B.C. Well maintained after all these years. I’m very impressed.

Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out.
Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive.
Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
I had to reblog just for “DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?" because it made me realize that some people really don’t!
This scene pissed me off.
Not because of how Toue’s character was handled - personally, I couldn’t ever see a proud and arrogant character ever, EVER committing suicide so this hasty, sloppy tie up of a loose end just comes off as just kind of jarring as it’s so out of character for him (in my opinion, at least) but that isn’t the point.
No, the reason why this made me so angry is because Mink should have been the one to kill Toue. After all, that was his main agenda - hell, it was the only driving force, his only motivation in his life. Even after Scrap, it was still something he felt immensely driven to do and would have done everything in order to achieve that goal.
Because you see, in Mink’s route, the moment where Mink kills Toue, is literally one of the most important moments out of the entire route because it is the moment where Mink’s one and only reason for living is gone. He has lived up to that point with nothing but the thought of murdering Toue in his head and he wasn’t going to let anything get in his way and was willing to do anything in order to be able to achieve that goal, even if it meant brutally hurting another. And when Mink finally achieved that, when his knife finally ended Toue’s life, that reason was just gone. He had nothing left and, before Aoba’s scrap. had been ready to die but because of Aoba’s scrap - because of Aoba’s plea to let go of the past, to keep living, he did. He went back to his homeland, made a life for himself and moved on - he let go of the painful past, of the memories that plagued him and started his life over.
But none of that happens in the anime. Toue kills himself, thus taking away Mink’s chance to relief himself of that hatred, his chance to complete his mission, to achieve his goal and finally be free of it - to finally get the peace and closure he needed. And by doing that, they (the animators, creators of the show, writers, etc etc) took away a MASSIVE amount of Mink’s character development - they took away probably the most important character development Mink went through. Because Aoba’s scrap wasn’t enough - Mink needed to kill Toue in order to purge himself, in order to complete himself and in order for him to get to this:
point. Now, don’t get me wrong, I was super ecstatic to see this included in the anime. I was so happy that we got to see him in his homeland, peaceful and working his way towards becoming a whole person but that doesn’t change the fact that a massive chunk of his character development was not included because Mink killing Toue is essential for him to get to that point.
And the thing is, it wouldn’t have been that hard to include it. He didn’t need to have his speech put in or for the scene to even be that long and there are about a dozen different ways that I can think of off the top of my head as to how to handle Mink killing Toue. There was no reason to just have Toue kill himself. There was no reason not to have Mink do it. And that makes it even more infuriating because this scene doesn’t make sense, it’s rushed, it’s sloppy, it’s jarring and it doesn’t fit into the canon (in my opinion) and what makes it even more infuriating is that the other boys’ closure feels legit because their character development was pretty much completely gone through (it was rushed but believable) but Mink’s comes with a bittersweet after taste because just the fact that Toue is just being dead wouldn’t be enough for him. He needed to kill Toue with his own hands in order to achieve the peace that is apparent in his final scene and by denying him that, you are disregarding a massive part of his story which is essential to his growth and his development - essential for him to go from the cold, empty man chained down and unable to move on to the man standing free on the mountaintop with his true self bared without hesitation.
And that is why it pisses me off so much. Don’t get me wrong because I am happy with how the anime turned out but that doesn’t change the fact this whole thing could have easily been handled so much better.
manifestation of a consciousness whose only purpose, only desire is to protect the being he considers the most important, the most dear, the most precious and who has fought and sacrificed to stay by that person’s side at any cost, even though it meant squashing down his own desire to be acknowledged by that person, to be loved by that person, to be wanted by that person, to be equal by that person.
This is a truly amazing story of twin sisters separated at birth who discovered each other at age 25 through social media (see Facebook message above in which Anais reached out to Samantha for the first time). One lives in London and the other in L.A. and the two have shared a close bond since meeting. They recently took a trip together to their birthplace, Seoul, Korea, and now they’re hoping to make a film together about their story. Check out their kickstarter campaign here. Story via buzzfeed.
