Such delightful and chilling talk. Do watch. +Jasmeen Patheja +Bimbabati Sen +Doyeeta Majumder +Ashwitha Jayakumar 
When writer Roxane Gay dubbed herself a "bad feminist," she was making a joke, acknowledging that she couldn't possibly live up to the demands for perfection of the feminist movement. But she's realized that the joke rang hollow. In a thoughtful and provocative talk, she asks us to embrace all flavors of feminism — and make the small choices that, en masse, might lead to actual change.

This is so good and so close to my heart for a number of reasons. (But mostly because try as I might I canNOT give up Game of Thrones!)

Preparing mocha for cooking is a therapeutic experience. To make it an informative one too, have an aged relative with an agricultural upbringing whisper kolagaach-related trivia into your ears.

I have to say, long-distance relationships in the age of technology are super exciting.

Oh, what a great response.
J.K. Rowling fired back at the Westboro Baptist Church on Twitter after they criticized her for supporting for same-sex marriages in Ireland.

The conversation between JK Rowling and Robert Galbraith on Twitter is the greatest thing ever. :P

This is just ... WOW.
Before the “Game of Thrones” Season 5 premiere, The Washington Post took a look back and noted every on-screen death from the first four seasons. Here are all 456 deaths in illustrated form, including who, how, why and where.

A fantastic dining experience. Excellent food that's cooked perfectly each time, and nice and friendly service. Must try the churros, for the wonderfully rich caramel sauce if nothing else.
