The South African internet gods have been feeling generous these past few weeks. First, we had My F*k Marelize then the #WooliesWaterChallenge and now we have Eskom. And in true South African fashion, we always have the ability to laugh. And if you’re totally over having no power, then scroll down for all the sushi-related news you didn’t know you needed to know about.
⚡He Who Shall Not Be Named… it’s Eskom
I really don’t think people should be complaining about Eskom and should rather do what this guy did.
I’ve decided that I’m going to stop moaning about Eskom and loadshedding and just make light of it instead💡🕯

Only joking load shedding is the worst. And here’s how to deal with all the stages that Eskom throws at us.

Stage 10 loadshedding is Eskom giving us all exposure and opportunities instead of electricity.

Stage 22 load shedding:
Derek Watts is arrested because his surname promotes electricity.

Stage 100 Loadshedding: Eskom comes to your house and permanently glues your eyelids shut so you never see the light again.

Load shedding stage 104 is when Eskom arranges to meet you, get to know you, make you fall in love with them and then break your heart to put out the light within your soul

When load shedding doesn't happen at the scheduled time, reminds me of those days of MNET Open Time, when it would carry on well past 19:00, giving you the false hope that they might have forgotten to press some button.

🍣A roundup of sushi-related news
Look at these works of art created from sashimi. This hobby can’t be cheap because sashimi is never an end-of-the-month Salticrack treat.
I love wasabi anything – wasabi mash, wasabi flavoured seaweed and wasabi peas are some of my favourite foods. But according to The Atlantic, about 99% of all wasabi is fake and is a mixture of horseradish, green food colouring and Chinese mustard! It is also one of the most difficult crops to grow but also the most lucrative at about $160 (R2300) per kilo.
There’s a new concept restaurant, Singular Sushi that’s set to open in Tokyo in 2020 and here’s how it works. You send in a sample of saliva so that the restaurant can test your DNA and come up with a sushi menu just for you. But that’s not all, the sushi will be 3D printed.
