Playing with your food can be fun, but what about hacking your food? Oreo thinks that's even better.

The first time I heard musician and Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna sing, "We want revolution…girl-style noooowwww," I was 16 years old, living deep in the suburbs listening to the Bikini Kill cassette a friend's younger sister had dubbed for me.

We all have that friend who, through bad taste or mere ignorance, cannot be trusted to make their own TV-viewing decisions. They won't even make time for a show as gripping and mind-blowing as Orphan Black, which is a travesty. Here's a guide for convincing your resident Luddite to bite the bullet and join you in the… »
