"If you love cooking with garlic, you know it does a lot of good in recipes by helping build flavor — but its strong odor can linger for hours, especially on our hands. We’ve all been in the situation where after preparing a wonderful meal, we’re left with the stench of garlic on our fingers — yuck! There are a few tricks people often recommend to eliminate the smell: lemon juice or vinegar, rubbing your hands with salt, or even using toothpaste! But those don’t work — all they do is mask the garlic smell. So what does really work? Stainless steel."
cooking with garlic? jerk off your sink
but can the science side of tumblr explain memes
The term “meme” as used today, denotes almost solely image-based internet humor. Memes, as some scientists conceive of the term, are really any kind of cultural idea that can be propagated through socialization. Memetics, iirc, is the study of this behavior, tracing ideological evolution much in the way genetics traces gene-related or biological evolution.
Memes in that context can have a broader scope, encompassing jokes, fables, urban legends, myths, conspiracies, cultural practices, etc. Internet memes seem to provide a similar function to that of other types of memes: They communicate cultural ideas, symbolize personal observations for the purpose of relating with others over shared experience, critique belief systems, reinforce communal values/morals, and/or tell stories.
Example 1: The Retail Robin meme image is one that relates common problems service workers have with customers. It explores the relationship people have with low-level employees who service them. It also provides a way for those workers to air grievances and critique behavior. It, and images like it, serve as a way to encapsulate a complex conversation into an easily shared message to facilitate the spread of that perspective.
Example 2: Rage comics condense personal experiences into a series of easily identifiable emotional symbols (the faces). They provide a shorthand for communicating feelings, and provide a simple way for people to relate shared emotional experience regarding a variety of modern situations. They, of course, can also be used to propagate cultural values, critique belief systems, etc. Their value is in how they exist as condensed and easily shared ideas.
