The Shortest (and Most Action-Oriented?) Arcade Blog

There is no double meaning, second degree and third interpretative level to be found in this post. Nothing metapoetic, cutting-edge, smart, hype, or poetic. No trope, no refined aesthetics, no beauty. But meaning yes, humanity yes, community yes. And a call to Arcade as a social network to spread a simple idea.

On thanksgiving day, approximately 45 millions pounds of turkey will be consumed (or discarded) in the United States

There is no intellectualizing this. Don’t think, just act.
