Busta Rhymes ft. Erykah Badu - “One”

[Busta Rhymes]
You always hold it down for me, so I’mma hold it for you
And watch the babies while you secure the food to come through

[Erykah Badu]
Now don’t let my ambition make you feel like competition
We should both play a role in our whole livin condition (true indeed)
I know you symbolize the strength inside the family
Then show me you can handle womanly responsibilities

[Busta Rhymes]
Not a problem I know you hold me down when I fall on the ground
But make sure when you bring the food home there’s enough to go ‘round
And because you are my everything what’s mine is yours
Movin in the same direction, just for one common cause

Cornerstone of NYC. One of the things that makes my city better than yours.

El bodega.

*La bodega (this looks like somewhere in the Stuy) then again as different as they look all corner stores look the same lol

home *wistful sigh*

One of the best and simultaneously worst things about NYC.

Get that food for the low or get that food poisoning. Either way you’ll end up buying.

It’s a fine line between love and hate in the brain.
Researchers have found results that suggest that the areas in the brain involved in hatred are also activated by love. The researchers scanned human subjects while they viewed the face of a person they hated, and also faces of acquaintances for whom they had neutral feelings. 
They then calculated a “hate score” - this was to quantify how much the participant hated each individual. Their results showed that viewing a hated face revealed a basic pattern of activity in the brain, that seems unique to “hate”. This “hate network” has components that have been considered to be important in generating aggressive behaviour and translating this behaviour into action. Most intriguingly though, the network involved regions that are almost identical to the ones activated by passionate, romantic love. 
The researchers conclude that the link of these two brain areas may account for why love and hate are so closely linked to each other in life.
I think it is important to remember that there could be so many possible explanations for why these areas light up in both hate and love - a reaction to faces, threats (i.e. maybe you are super sensitive to threat when thinking about the person you love being taken away, etc.) but it’s an interesting study none the less.

Duh. I thought The Persuaders figured that out decades ago… and HTown confirmed this back in 1996!!?
