They don't call Wisconsinites "cheeseheads" for nothing. The state produces over three billion pounds of cheese per year, and being around so much of that dairy goodness eventually seeps into local citizens' brains in a way other people will never understand. In early November, at a Milwaukee Bucks basketball game, one woman dazzled the crowd and won an audience challenge by naming 27 different kinds of cheese in only 30 seconds!



The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel asked the woman, identified as Jamie Kiesl, how she managed to accomplish such an impressive feat.

She offered a perfect explanation:

"I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life."


Kiesl added even more mystique to her victory by holding a child and wearing a cheese-wedge hat as she named every cheese from gorgonzola to mascarpone.



While it's amusing to poke fun at Wisconsinites and their dairy, the truth is that the state produces 26% of the nation's cheese annually. According to Munchies, the badger state accounts for "over one billion pounds of mozzarella, almost 666 million pounds of processed cheese, and 86 million pounds of feta per year."


Twitter was floored by Kiesl's cheese prowess!




Some, however, thought her score was inflated by the inclusion of cheese categories instead of actual varieties:


It's hard to imagine any cheeses she didn't get to, but the list does seem truly endless!




Congratulations, Ms. Kiesl, on your mastery of the cheeses. Watching your challenge would impress even the Monty Python crew!

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

There are some things that absolutely should be "free" - or at least not an extra fee on top of some already-paid money. So let's talk about them.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
