The best part of believe is the linkspam

Divination
Tarotpedia has a list of animal-related tarot decks including, among others, Kippen Tarot [chickens], Ferret Tarot, Chat du Marseilles, Baroque Bohemian Cats Tarot, and Tarot for Cats.

Avengers Crossovers Waiting To Happen
Possibly my favourite xkcd what if ever. (discussion of calories, but in the context of needing to consume enough, not trying to consume fewer)

Musical Masterpieces
'Faeries' Aire And Death Waltz' arr by acc. John Stump, performed by the Colorado State Music Teacher's Association. Their utter evil glee at bringing this work to life would be enough to make me enjoy it, even if I hadn't long admired the score.

Medicine
Aaron Cohen's coma story. He was in a coma for three months before recovering. His family documented the experience in 52 videos.

Totally Horrible
Suicide and transphobia ahoy, and another dismissal right from Joanna Russ's How To Suppress playbook: "she did it, but she's not really a woman." (Edit: Here's a petition to have Caleb Hannan fired for driving a woman to suicide.)

Cooking
Clara Cannucciari's Great Depression Cooking. A series of YouTube videos by a nonagenarian, about cooking during the Depression. Maybe a resource for Captain America fanfic writers?

More Cooking
Making salami: he's braver than I am. Fascinating to look at, though. (Relatedly, anyone in Melbourne Australia know where you can get free range salami? n.b. anyone wishing to make a double entendre out of that will be reminded that I prefer my salami thinly sliced.)

Horrors of Menstruation, part 3
My Vagina Eats Diva Cups For Breakfast (no illustrations, but the text is probably NSFW)

Great Inventions Of Our Time
This Is Spinal Tape

Those Depression-era cooking videos are awesome - those sugar cookies she makes in the breakfast video look exactly the same as the ones my Nonna made, and she ate hers dipped in coffee, too.

And they made salami, too, my grandparents, and it looked just like that other link. Only they hung theirs from the garage roof. THEY WERE SO GOOD, OMG.

I just read the tale of the Diva Cup. You might have heard my screams.
