Building bikes by hand in Japan. The cycling industry is increasingly driven by mass production and the latest materials.But some are still building bicycles the old fashioned way.Yoshiaki Nagasawa trained in Italy and says that his bikes are just as strong as they are beautiful even though they are not made of aluminum or carbon fibre. Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett reports from Osaka. Thanks to Keirin Berlin for the heads up.

the more i do research about sexual assault of female prisoners by male guards

the more disgusted i get with OITNB romanticizing and normalizing the relationship with the guard having sex with a prisoner

It also horrifies me that there’s that season two scene where Bennett freaks out as the other inmates “blackmail” him, then he finds a cigarette and FLIPS OUT on several inmates, throwing their stuff and yelling in their faces, without knowing who actually did the smoking…it’s totally illustrative of the fucked up power dynamics and then nothing comes of it?  No one says anything?  Everyone in the fandom just kind of goes “aww, poor Bennett”.

Like, he can verbally assault these women for absolutely no reason, don’t pretend he even CARES if the inmates are smoking, he’s literally just angry about rule breaking and livid at the idea that some inmates might have power over him, when he has SO MUCH POWER over all of them.  It’s so gross and awful he is NOT a good person.
