Off topic: Food forest, ‘Star Wars’ yoga, yoga sex scandal, green and mean, paper-airplane throwing

In Seattle, they’re building “a forest of food, for the people, by the people.” Yoga times two: First, “Star Wars”-style. Also, should a yoga sex scandal really come as no surprise? Mean and green ideas include a shower that stabs your feet when you use too much water, and a sink that could kill your pet fish if you wash your hands too long. And a former Cal quarterback sets a throwing world record — for paper airplanes.

    The “green ideas” link is sporked…

    It should work now, thanks for the heads up.

    In a culture where being sexual is itself a source of greater or lesser shame for 95% of the populace,* the words “sex scandal” become strangely redundant.

    * Except, of course, when sexual imagery is being used to sell toothpaste, cars, or drain cleaner. In America, nothing that produces a profit can ever be a source of shame.

    Link to yoga story is broken. It doesn’t go to the NY Times website properly.
