revelrysociety: On September 7th of last year The Society for the Preservation of Historic Revelry embarked on one of its most ambitious expeditions: The Arthur Erickson Dinner Series. With a mandate to gather, party, and collect content at every Arthur Erickson site in the province of British Columbia, small teams have been assembling themselves outside Erickson sites as part of the Revelry Society’s 5th Official Expedition.

It is with great excitement that this journey continues, over a year since it started at the law courts in Vancouver’s downtown core, with a 4th dining event at the Museum of Anthropology on the UBC campus in West Vancouver.

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

My mission for summer is to perfect my technique for cooking a rare steak on a BBQ. Any advice, meat eaters?

Buy an instant read thermometer and trust the internet, not your friends.

have the grill HOT, like 600 degrees. Wait until a tiny bit of blood appears on the top side, then flip. Same again and remove. Remember to let stand for 3 mins.

Noam Chomsky On Human Extinction: The Corporate Elite Are Actively Courting Disaster

Climate change poses an imminent threat to human life, said political philosopher Noam Chomsky – and humans are drawing their own doom ever closer.

Who is accelerating it? Chomsky said. The most privileged, so-called advanced, educated populations of the world.

He compared this phenomenon to a theory by Ernst Mayr, a 20th-century evolutionary biologist who speculated humans would never encounter intelligent extraterrestrials because higher life forms quickly force themselves into extinction.

Mayr argued that the adaptive value of what is called ‘higher intelligence’ is very low, Chomsky said. Beetles and bacteria are much more adaptive than humans. We will find out if it is better to be smart than stupid. We may be a biological error, using the 100,000 years which Mayr gives [as] the life expectancy of a species to destroy ourselves and many other life forms on the planet.

But Chomsky remained hopeful that the corporate elite could be overthrown before they bring on environmental disaster, citing historical examples of mass movements that returned power to autonomous collectives.
