A few years back in the heyday, they also announced on the bitcoin forums that Amazon now accepted the currency of the future. In reality, it was a guy that you sent bitcoins and a shoppinglist, and he bought the stuff from Amazon with USD. Goalposts, what is that?

Pretty much everyone was huffing lead by this point so it's not surprising that the second half of the century is full of all sorts of crazy poo poo. I mean look at some of these pictures of AMAZING MEALS

Let's start off with some salad:

Nutritious and delicious! Mix a bunch of gelatin with canned vegetables, bake that poo poo, and then put tartar sauce all over it for some reason. MM YUM

Interested in adding some meat to that salad? Try this one:


This is a picture of lemon-tomato Jell-O mixed with creamy tuna salad. Alternatively, a dog vomited in a pie dish. No one is totally sure. But it's a recipe from the 60s and people actually ate this poo poo

No dinner party is complete without an appetizer for your guests to salivate all over:

This is basically 6 cups of canned ham mashed into a thick paste and mixed with a bunch of raisins. Form it into a cone, slather on a half-inch layer of mayo, and then dump almonds all over it

But you've also got to have a main course, try this on for size!

This is a loaf of bread, under a layer of ham, under another loaf of bread, under potato salad, under another loaf of bread, and then the entire thing is covered in cream cheese frosting, decorated with parsley, and a whole tomato is put on top. It's called ribbon cake. You probably think that I'm making this poo poo up, but you can find these things in actual 1950s and 1960s cookbooks.

Need a beverage to wash down these horrors?


SLOWLY pour 7-up into milk. Whatever you do, DO NOT STIR

In conclusion the mid-1900s were full of stupid and crazy poo poo, if they had the Internet and bitcoin back then bitcoin would have immediately had widespread adoption because everyone was a loving moron

part of it was that a lot of people had moved off farms into cities during the 20s and especially the depression in search of work, stayed within them during the 40s and often early 50s for wwii and korean war related work, and then finally after a generation away and much of that spent with minimal food variety, they were happy to try anything as they started moving out to suburbs since they didnt particularly want to be int he cities in the first place.

Bitcoin Is A Currency of Equality
Today on facebook, I stumbled across a post which read something like “Trans-inclusive bank.” The post was a link to an article describing a bank that was friendly to transgender people. For a moment, I had trouble seeing the point of it all. Why does anyone actually need to say that a bank is trans friendly? Any bank who turns a customer away with money in hand is a bank that is probably on the take from Uncle Sam, or ready to be bought up.

Then I remembered: not everyone uses or knows about bitcoin. What I had intuitively understood about the currency (for bitcoin is a currency) seems to be mentioned nowhere else. So I will mention here that bitcoin is the must inclusive, pro-equality currency that has ever existed. There are a handful of reasons- I suspect I’m only scratching the surface here.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are gay.

-Bitcoin does not care what country you are from.

-Bitcoin does not care if you have had an abortion.

-Bitcoin does not care if you have breasts and a penis, or if you are a man with a vagina.

-Bitcoin does not care if you twerk at nightclubs or travel the world as an exotic dancer.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are a drug dealer.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are a convicted felon.

-Bitcoin does not care how you worship, or if you worship.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are unemployed.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are on food stamps, or have been declared incompetent by any of the world’s governments.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are homeless or have five mansions.

-Bitcoin does not care if you are black, Asian, an Inuit, a Mexican, or someone from the Isle of Fiji.

In other words, bitcoin is the only currency in existence that treats everyone absolutely the same. In having no regard for people at all, it shows what governments (and some banks) all across the world have failed to show: that one person who has money is not much different from another person who has money. Indeed, anyone who wishes to realize the dream of utopian equality must cast off the traditional systems of governance and currency while moving towards a system that is anonymous, and therefore capable of being used by anyone.

One of bitcoin’s virtues lays in the fact that, quite often, no government ID is required to use it. An internet connection and a password are usually good enough. This means that anyone can use it. Or, put another way, no one is restricted from using it upon any basis whatsoever. Bitcoin is not racist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic or elitist. It has no personal preferences whatsoever.

While Martin Luther King Jr. wanted a world in which his children could be judged by the content of their character, bitcoin has gone one step further: if his children decide to use the cryptocurrency, they won’t be judged at all.

Is smörgåstårta just Swedish for "disgusting mess"?

"Hey guys, I soaked this fish in lye for a couple of days and it turned into jelly. Dig in!"

Okay that's not really far, it probably preserves the gently caress out of the fish if you do that, so as a traditional dish lutfisk makes some sense. But ribbon loaf? Fuuuuuuuck that
