The Easiest Way to Peel Roasted Peppers

The Easiest Way to Peel Roasted Peppers

Roasted red peppers are silky and sweet, but the tough, flakey, charred skins don’t bring much to the table, so to speak. And, even if they have not-so-tough thin skins, they often flake and crumble into little black specks of charred plant matter, which you may not find particularly appealing. Roasted peppers are, luckily, very easy to peel—you just have to cover them for a moment.

Trump's Cynical Supreme Court 'Feminism' Will Dismantle Women's Rights

On Saturday, Empowerment Queen Donald Trump announced he plans on giving a gift to all women, but especially to the white women voters who have

theoretically soured on his presidency: his Supreme Court nominee will be, you guessed it, a woman! When abortion rights–along with environmental protections and the Affordable Care Act–are further gutted, at least we’ll know it was a Girl Boss who...

Robert Gore, Who Kept Us Dry and Cool in the Rain with His Gore-Tex Invention, Has Died

His full name isn’t as well known as Thomas Edison or Alexander Graham Bell’s, but if you spend any amount of time outdoors, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least part of Robert W. Gore’s name on your gear. He’s the inventor of Gore-Tex, and at the age of 83, the celebrated inventor, engineer, and chemist passed away late last week.

Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1937, Bob Gore seemed...

Trump Has Already Narrowed His Supreme Court List Down and Could Announce His Choice by the End of the Week

I know that I shouldn’t be surprised by the unrelenting heartlessness of this administration, but I am. That’s the truth.

Lovecraft Country Expanded Its Mythos With a Carnal Story about War

Lovecraft Country Expanded Its Mythos With a Carnal Story about War

The degree to which HBO’s

Lovecraft Country has already branched off from the novel its based on might give you the sense that at this point, with half the season over, the story might slow down on the worldbuilding to begin fully weaving its core character’s arcs together in the buildup to its finale. But the first few minutes alone of “Meet Me in Daegu” brush that idea aside wholly.

The Four-Cylinder Supra Is Just OK

The Four-Cylinder Supra Is Just OK
Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place.

Few cars have caused me as much inner conflict as the new Supra. It’s so cool that this nameplate is back! Bummer it’s not an original Toyota product.

It looks incredible on the street! Shame it’s not exceptional to drive.

Now there’s a less-expensive model, with a smaller engine, and I’ll tell you what: It’s alright.

Atlanta Deserves These Falcons and Their Latest Choke Job for the Ages

Atlanta Deserves These Falcons and Their Latest Choke Job for the Ages

The Atlanta Falcons stink.

There’s no other way to describe them that would do this pitiful organization justice.

After Sunday’s embarrassing collapse to the Dallas Cowboys — a 40-39 last-second loss after leading 20-0 after the first quarter — the Falcons reminded us all why that town is the Choke Capital of Sports.

Yes, ATL stands for: Another Terrible Loss.

Gritty that, we regret to say, you are not allowed to eat. This is despite a tweet from Pennsylvania’s Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman that shows the hashtag-ready Butter Gritty appearing bug-eyed, delectable, and described as consisting not of matted mascot-hair but “pure, delicious PA butter.”

How to Stop Helicopter Parenting

How to Stop Helicopter Parenting

If the pandemic has turned you into a helicopter parent, one can hardly blame you. Unless you were the stay-at-home-parent to very young children before COVID hit, chances are your life used to be structured as such that every member of the family had some semblance of a life outside of the home. But now, we’ve got nothing but time to hover over our kids, monitoring their every move, from...

What's better? A $28 bottle of champagne or a hazmat suit-wearing trophy presenter in your backyard?

Who said the dystopia wouldn’t also be hilarious? Last night’s Emmy Awards was by and large a virtual affair, with the nominees streaming live from their towering, marble-encrusted estates. Unable to stroll onstage to collect their statues, they were presented a different kind of pageantry when their categories came around.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Alone Was Never Going to Save Us

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

died on the eve of the Jewish new year, and I learned the news as I was wondering how on earth to spend the evening. This is the first time in memory that I have spent Rosh Hashanah without family, a minor grievance in the scheme of a year filled with unquestionable sorrow. It had already seemed impossible to celebrate; at once it seemed preposterous.
