How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.

Gordon Ramsay is my favorite.
i just want to hug all of them
Fun story. I cooked for this dude, once. I did my kitchen apprenticeship at the family-style restaurant of one of New Zealand’s premiere chefs, and he knew Ramsay really well. He was in New Zealand for a few weeks, and Martin brought him by the restaurant to check it out. It was right on the beach, fucking gorgeous. I was the only one there (apprentice = bitch work = 4am starting shifts), and they asked me to whip up some breakfast for them. It was SUPER simple, fried fish, eggs cooked in bread, sausages. He was incredibly gracious and kind, asked me to join them (I couldn’t, too much work to do, so they sat at the kitchen window so they could talk to me), and was super interested in hearing about my english grandma, who had taught me how to cook. I won’t hear a single bad word against this man, for all of his kitchen hysterics, he treated me like an equal.

If you’re not in the Gordon Ramsay fandom you’re wrong.

Dear cis people,
Check your motherfucking privilege.
This is disgusting AND rape. EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SEX. Man, woman, male, female, gay, straight, trans, cis. Are you fucking kidding me???
Sexual orientation usually is based on SEX, not GENDER. I don’t care if a transwoman is a woman, as a lesbian I DO NOT WANT A DICK IN ME. And I have EVERY RIGHT to refuse sex with someone even if it’s just because they have a dick.
Forcing a man to be attracted to you and have sex with you because you identify as a woman is rape and wrong.
For the comment
HOLY FUCK BLESS THAT COMMENT
are you motherfucking kidding me “i’m oppressed therefore you are obligated to have sex with me” i’m gonna throw something
when someone takes a bad picture of you
Sweden’s 25 Provinces from North to South
i can’t speak to any of the other provinces but man Skåne is not grey enough
Småland isn’t tree-y enough. IRL it looks like powermetal guitar solos sound.
Home sweet home.

once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone
go big or go home
