Seattle NPR outlet KUOW describes, “Throwing away the lunches of students who can’t pay is part of a practice called lunch shaming.

Budweiser brewed a beer based on George Washington's recipe

  Budweiser brewed a beer based on George Washington's recipe How George Washington ran a country and also made time for fun hobbies like homebrewing is totally beyond me. But homebrew he did, and one of his recipes is now the inspiration for a new Budweiser beer from Anheuser-Busch called Freedom Reserve Red Lager.The 1757 “recipe” is less a recipe and more of a general outline of his process—what temperature am I mashing in at, G-Dubs?—but it still contained enough details for the brewers at Anheuser-Busch to build a beer around it. Curiously, it also includes instructions to let the beer stand “til it is little more than Blood warm.” (Thanks to Fortune for transcribing Washington’s cursive into something us screenfreaks can actually read.

These States Drink the Most Beer

“I had been struggling in our relationship for a while due to other concerns I was having about his behavior toward me,” she says. “So none of my friends or family knew what was going on. I had a few close internet friends that I thought would give me a good, genuine, non-biased reply. I had no idea it would go viral. I only had about 200 followers!”

But it definitely did go viral, with nearly 39,500 likes and over 5,700 comments from people telling Johnson to break up with him, and that she’s beautiful already.

“The reaction was and is still overwhelming,” she says. “But the people sharing their stories has been so heartwarming. Men, women, everyone has reached out and told me my story has inspired them. I couldn’t ask for a better outcome. It’s not even about me anymore, it’s about touching other people.”

Johnson decided to dump him — though she says that she had made that choice before the Twitter reaction. “The comments only made me realize I wasn’t crazy for being hurt,” she says. And she joked in another tweet that their breakup meant that she was “dropping a hefty 180 lbs.”

“I really did love him,” Johnson says. “He is a good person deep down — he has a lot of growing to do though. Hopefully this motivates him, he said it has.”
