A cup of hot tea really heals ur soul this is true science
Actually, a cup of hot anything in your hands mimics human warmth which is said to have calming properties. So, yes, it’s true. Tea mimics the need for human care, touch, and recognition.

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.—

Seriously, go listen to this.
rachelfershleiser asked: What am I gonna read til there are more Veronica Mars novels, HAAAAALLLP!
This is indeed a conundrum! There is always Sara Gran; Jenn likes to imagine that in an alternate universe Claire de Witt takes Veronica under her wing and the two of them mock, stomp, and punch their way through mysteries together. On the other end of the age scale there’s Alice LaPlante’s Turn of Mind, in which a woman with Alzheimer’s tries to solve the mystery of her best friend’s death — and her own participation in it. (This one is so good about mothers, daughters, and friendship.) If you’re not already a devotee of Patricia Highsmith, you should start with The Price of Salt which is more of a thriller than a mystery but still soooo good. We’re pretty sure you’ve already read Megan Abbott but if you haven’t, DO SO IMMEDIATELY. And maybe also Cara Hoffman’s So Much Pretty, which has a spunky teenage character, some class issues, and takes a serious (read: may give you nightmares) look at women and sexual assault.
