You’ve never heard of The Bog?
EACH ADDITION TO THIS POST MAKES MY BLOOD RUN COLD
This is a cranberry bog (unflooded) it’s how cranberries grow. Once they’re ripe, the blog is flooded and the cranberries harvested.
Basically by using big floaty things to round them all up and then scooping them out of the water.
thank u. i hate it a little less but the horrible little man in my head is still screaming “BOG BODY BOG BODY BOG BODY”, but i appreciate the education,
oh here is a fun lil perspective on cranberry harvesting i never heard about anywhere else. the guy who owns the restaurant right down the road from the farm, who fries our chickens sometimes, is from Boston, with the strongest Boston accent ever, and in a former life before he started slinging reasonably priced barbeque and occasional organic chicken, he was a cranberry farmer.
His farm was on the leading edge of kinda using organic/sustainable pest control methods, and one of the things that they did to keep insect damage down was that they encouraged wolf spiders to live in the cranberry field, to eat the bugs.
This was all fine and good until they flooded the bog. Now, you don’t just like flood the bog and then go around it in a boat or whatever. No, you use hip waders to get in there and put the big floaty things where they go and get all the berries and such.
Well when you’re in the bog in hip waders, that makes you the tallest thing. Wolf spiders can swim a bit, but they don’t like it, so they’re, quite understandably, looking to climb out of the water onto a tall thing.
So yeah the first interview question he always asked potential cranberry bog harvester hires was “are you cool with spiders?”
“You’d be amazed,” he said to us, shaking his head a little, “how many guys would just straight lie. Like, you think I’m asking you that question to be cute? Nah man you’re gonna have like a hundred wolf spiders trying to climb your eyebrows, you gotta be chill, those wolf spiders are fellow employees. You really gotta be chill with spiders if you’re gonna work a cranberry harvest.”
happy international workers day to the cranberry bog spiders
evidence that ancient paleolithic venus statues were made by women who were examining their own bodies and sculpting them from their own point of view, not, as previously assumed, exaggerated features from an outside perspective

If straight women are going to get married, it’s better that they don’t have a man involved. Men are a drag anyways. Good for them.
Although many Boston marriages were romantic, others formed platonically to secure independence for women. This is the 21st century version. Let straight women take advantage of domestic partner benefits and tax breaks to help each other.
If this is the couple I read about, one of them is gay but just isn’t romantically or sexually attracted to her friend. Also, they’re not American so discussions about things like health insurance might not apply/be different than OP of the tiktok is implying. Marriage does give legal protections for better or for worse. If you want to legally protect your best friend or if you want your best friend to be recognized as your family because you prioritize this person, why not get married? There are all kinds of arrangements where romantic couples get benefits where others don’t. Further, like the screen shot above says, it’s not wrong to want to prioritize women in your life. Their own romantic relationships will not follow the norm because they’re not going to use marriage as a symbol of commitment to a romantic partner but besides people’s judgement, is there anything fundamentally wrong with that? Not really…
it is impossible to be a nonbinary lesbian. you cannot claim to not be a girl and then claim to be a girl who is only attracted to girls.
they realized the cognitive dissonance of this and instead decided to work-around by redefining yet another word, lesbian, to mean “non-man attracted to non-men.”
Not dehumanixing in the slighest. Men are the default and women are a deviation, right?
sharon had a real liara is the shadowbroker moment huh
listening to a new yorker struggle to do a generic southern accent, let alone a louisianna accent? hilarious but i applaud the effort
Can you believe that there are people who live so close to the ocean that they can just think “hey, I should go to the ocean” and then they just do???
For those who can’t go to the ocean….
…I can bring an ocean to you.
