Are you familiar with shoaling? “Shoaling” is a term for when cyclists have it so good in a city that they turn on each other.
No, that’s not really what it means. Shoaling is better known as a term of bike etiquette, one that describes a specific cycling behavior that’s emerged with the proliferation of bikes and bike lanes in many U.S. metro areas. In its own way, shoaling is a sign that bike lanes, bikesharing, and other pro-cycling transit policies are working. Which is making some people mad. 
So, shoaling: You’re stopped at a red light with a bunch of folks on bikes, when someone who’s just arrived sails past everyone, right to the head of the class. It’s a lot like seeing somebody in the Whole Foods express lane with too many things. In other words, it’s the kind of behavior that triggers toothy-toddler rages in otherwise emotionally competent adults.

The peaches we eat today look very little like the first peaches planted. We can thank the Chinese farmers who first domesticated the fruit for kicking off the millennia of breeding for perfection.

We’ve Been In ‘The Era Of The Booty’ For A Long Time
“An article that discusses “The Era of the Big Booty,” currying praise and high regard for curves — while erasing the culture that originally brought them to the mainstream — feels like someone saying only these kinds of bodies can receive this kind of praise. America rewards beauty heavily with privilege, promotions and favor. To shut out black women from being able to lay claim to their own features is cruel. To mention Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance, and not even once mention the other “big booties” on stage with her? Hazard a guess as to why.” — Commentator Erika Nicole Kendall on how the history of the full figure far predates J.Lo.
