i would like omocat, but they profitted off a pamphlet of a boy who falls in love with his bully and ugh.

well in defense of that, the “bully” just called the kid “pretty boy” and then it was the bully that fell in love and defended the boy from other bullies. the joke was…

so there’s a pigeon i used to pass by in my old neighborhood all the time and he was really fat because people would just toss him food and literally he sat in the middle of the sidewalk and people would just step over him, he wouldn’t even flinch. seriously you could sit down next to him and just feed him and he would be chill.
he was there every day and all us locals would affectionately refer to him as ‘lard-ass’

A loaf of bread made in the first century AD, which was discovered at Pompeii, preserved for centuries in the volcanic ashes of Mount Vesuvius. The markings visible on the top are made from a Roman bread stamp, which bakeries were required to use in order to mark the source of the loaves, and to prevent fraud. (via Ridiculously Interesting)

(sigh) I’ve seen these before, but this one’s particularly beautiful.

I feel like I’m supposed to be marveling over the fact that this is a loaf of bread that’s been preserved for thousands of years, and don’t get me wrong, that’s hella cool.  But honestly, I’m mostly struck by the unexpected news that “bread fraud” was apparently once a serious concern.

Bread Fraud was a huge thing,  Bread was provided to the Roman people by the government - bakers were given grain to make the free bread, but some of them stole the government grain to use in other baked goods and would add various substitutes, like sawdust or even worse things, to the bread instead.  So if people complained that their free bread was not proper bread, the stamp told them exactly whose bakery they ought to burn down.

Bread stamps continued to be used at least until the Medieval period in Europe. Any commercially sold bread had to be stamped with an official seal to identify the baker to show that it complied with all rules and regulations about size, price, and quality. This way, rotten or undersized loaves could be traced back to the baker. Bakers could be pilloried, sent down the streets in a hurdle cart with the offending loaf tied around their neck, fined, or forbidden to engage in baking commercially ever again in that city. There are records of a baker in London being sent on a hurdle cart because he used an iron rod to increase the weight of his loaves, and another who wrapped rotten dough with fresh who was pilloried. Any baker hurdled three times had to move to a new city if they wanted to continue baking.
If you have made bread, you are probably familiar with a molding board. It’s a flat board used to shape the bread. Clever fraudsters came up with a molding board that had a little hole drilled into it that wasn’t easily noticed. A customer would buy his dough by weight, and then the baker would force some of that dough through the hole, so they could sell and underweight loaf and use the stolen dough to bake new loafs to sell. Molding boards ended up being banned in London after nine different bakers were caught doing this. There were also instances of grain sellers withholding grain to create an artificial scarcity drive up the price of that, and things like bread.
Bread, being one of the main things that literally everyone ate in many parts of the world, ended up with a plethora of rules and regulations. Bakers were probably no more likely to commit fraud than anyone else, but there were so many of them, that we ended up with lots and lots of rules and records of people being shifty.

PLEASE SIGNAL — SEXUAL HARRASSER ON SYDNEY BUSES — TARGETS SCHOOLGIRLS

This is Daniel Cousins. He is a white man in his late 20s / early 30s, brown hair, blue eyes, piercing on left eyebrow, braces. Appears to have some sort of autism. He usually catches the 314 / 316 / 317 at around 8am from Bondi Junction Interchange and then will spend the entire morning doing a circle of the city by bus, looking for girls to groom. He has reportedly also caught the 376 and the 389. He will sit next to schoolgirls and try to talk to them, get information about them, grab them and pull on their clothing. He will move seats throughout his journey to sit closer to girls. He sometimes sits next to girls traveling alone. I first encountered him about 3 years ago and have since reported him along with over ten people from my school. He has sexually harassed girls before. BEWARE OF THIS CREEP!!! If he sits close to you GET THE FUCK OUT!!! ALERT OTHER GIRLS ON THE BUS!!! He’ll act very shy to make you feel sorry for him DO NOT BE FOOLED!!! Please share this so we can protect each other.

PLEASE FILE A REPORT — If you have encountered this man please make a report to the detective working on this case: Louise Rodden at Maroubra Police Station. We are currently building a case against him.
