Reason #9237671 that the Girl Scouts are superior to the Boy Scouts in every possible way (you know, besides being about acceptance and empowerment of women rather than paramilitary training and homophobia): a couple of Girl Scouts in Michigan are refusing to sell the signature (delicious) cookies because they use palm oil, which is environmentally unsustainable and also bad for orangutan populations! Badass, ladies, seriously badass...but fundamentally unsurprising because the Girl Scouts are not about conformity and unquestioning obedience to authority figures! (Via Jezebel.)
(Seriously, though, tasty Girl Scout cookies, let's quit with the palm oil, mmkay? I would like to eat some without feeling, you know, shitty.)
This is unrelated, but I have been meaning to say, I saw the most disturbing thing in my officeplex parking lot the other day! A couple of crows flew off carrying a baby squirrel! I am kinda scarred for life, I think.
