"Perfect is very boring, and if you happen to have a different look, that’s a celebration of human nature, I think. If we were all symmetrical and perfect, life would be very dull."
One of Marvel’s Avengers Turns to Sign Language. The story strives to connect readers with what he is experiencing: when he can’t hear, the word balloons on the page are blank. The comic also makes extensive use of sign language, but provides no key to interpreting them. “If nothing else, it’s an opportunity for hearing people to get a taste of what it might be like to be deaf,” Mr. Fraction said.

Okay. If you haven’t made bread before and you’re at all mildly even possibly interested in trying to do so, make No-Knead Bread. Seriously. It is so easy a four year old can do it and people love the resulting bread.
I do a version where there are four ingredients including water (PBS suggests cornmeal, which I’ve honestly never done) and I take shortcuts on this recipe to make it even easier (after first 12-24 hour raise I just kinda scoop the dough into a ball in the bottom and then re-cover the bowl with plastic wrap/aluminum foil for two hours instead of messing around with a towel, skipping all of PBS’s step 2 and half of step 3). If you don’t have a dutch oven (I never have) you can use a round casserole dish or an oven safe pot (check the heat tolerance on that one though) with either its own cover or a baking pan laid on top. I preheat the casserole dish for about half an hour instead of twenty minutes, because if your container isn’t extremely hot when you put the dough in it’ll stick like a mofo and your bottom crust will get stuck to the bottom, but as long as your oven is capable of getting up to 450 fairly quickly and hanging out there for a bit you should be fine.
If you can read a measuring cup and stir, you can do this recipe. It’s so delicious, and so easy.
you guys. you guys. EVEN I made this successfully, with admittedly some handholding. two days ago I ate leftover cheese and two-day-old champagne for dinner, but EVEN I CAN MAKE THIS BREAD so GODDAMNIT you can too.
