Quickies: Fat Shaming, MST3k, and Behind the Story of Killer Bread

In lieu of an interesting fact about history, please enjoy this cute video, Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos. (It’s exactly what it sounds like.)

Mary Brock is a scientist who works on drugs you've hopefully never heard of. She enjoys cooking to Blue Grass music, messing with her cats, and hosting the Boston Skeptics' Book Club. She was born in the South but loves living in New England (despite the lack of chocolate chip pizza). Mary does not use Twitter and don't even try to follow her, because she is always looking over her shoulder.

    The Rifftrax of Starship Troopers is really funny and a great place to start.

    The bread story is about drugs and booze. Anyone who bothers to inform themselves on the subjects will find it absolutely unremarkable. Without gender and sex to blur the issue, this should be even easier.

    Honestly, if you’re checking out Rifftrax for the first time coming as an MST3K fan, I would recommend the VOD stuff. ESPECIALLY the shorts. The shorts are the same genre (often the same companies) as the educational shorts they used to riff before some MST3K features. The full-length VODs also tend to be great, schlocky B-grade stuff, exactly where they excel. The modern stuff is good too, but I find the sheer lack of film-making ability is more enjoyable in older flicks.
