i’m just wondering why there are herbs and fruits and vegetables written in a faded, creepy red on a prison-like wall in chinese. are herbs and fruits and vegetables in chinese supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactics? or am i missing something here?
The above makes this so much better

We all remember the iconic fear-mongering advertisement from the ’90s: “This is your brain on drugs.” It showed some delicious butter melting in a pan as an egg is dropped into the sizzling saucer. This, a male voice informs you, is what happens to your precious head when you’re under the influence.
Goldie Blox, a small toy company committed to empowering girls, has decided to take this impactful ad to the next level by showing what a young girl’s brain looks like when she’s on “princess.” Ok, maybe Sleeping Beauty and Snow White aren’t as bad as crack, but they certainly have a lasting impact on girl’s psychosocial development.
According to a poll taken by the 2009 World Public Opinion, 63% of Iranians hold favorable attitudes towards the U.S. For many Americans, Iran seems like an unlikely place where clothing emblazoned with stars and stripes would be trendy.
The stereotypical picture Americans paint of Iran involves mad mullahs, women in chadors and nuclear bombs. According to a Pew Research study, 69% of Americans have a negative view of Iran – and that might be rooted in their limited knowledge of what Iranians are actually like.
