One of the great things about science is that the warlocks who wield it can answer the really tough questions, and also they can answer questions like "What time should I go grab a cup of coffee?" Science isn't gonna get all judgy and tell you which information matters and which doesn't. It's just gonna spit out a number (like, say, 2:16 p.m.), and then we can all read that number and give science some serious side-eye while we stubbornly continue to drink our coffee at dumb-ass times like 7:08 a.m. because goddamn it, science, we're not machines.

- As fast-food workers stage strikes all over to demand a living wage, MoJo has devised this handy calculator to answer the question, "Could You Survive on Fast-Food Wages?" And not to spoil it or anything, but the answer is pretty much, "Nope!" (The more troubling answer is, of course, that we are an extraordinarily resourceful and resilient species that can survive almost anything—but at what cost?)
- NYT Mag/NPR contributor Rosie Schaap has a new book out called Drinking with Men, and Leite's has an excerpt right here.
- Oh look, more science—and this time they're fucking with ice cream. NPR's The Salt has rounded up a handful of "Futuristic Ice Creams" that left me saying things like: "Wait, what?" Partially because I still have no idea why that one ice cream is called wiki-something, and partially because I don't know what's futuristic about savory ice cream flavors. Like, (Humphry Slocombe neighbor) Bi-Rite's been putting olive oil and salt on sundaes since at least 2006 or 2007, which science tells me is actually in the past. Get your story straight, science.
