Oh to have those lost, turtlenecked, possibly-not-good-but-who-knows episodes back.

7 Amazing Works of Pop Culture That Have Been Lost Forever

#6. Nearly 100 Episodes of Doctor Who (and Other Shows)

We bring up the cult sci-fi series about a reincarnating time-traveler because it’s currently missing 97 of its 800 episodes after the BBC had wiped the tapes containing them, in a foolish but noble effort to weaken the show’s fanatical fanbase, probably. It apparently didn’t work, though, because ever since then, BBC has been desperately scouring the globe for the lost episodes, some of which have turned up in attics, garage sales, far-flung former parts of the British Empire like Nigeria or Hong Kong, and the basement of a Mormon Church in London.

My landlady just took my roommate Ariel and I out for dinner at a Chinese restaurant. I ordered plain white rice with steamed vegetables, Ariel ordered a Jumbo plate of ribs, chicken balls, shrimp and fried rice, and my landlady (Sara) ordered ribs and fried rice with gravy. When she took my order they were both like “ew that’s going to be so plain and have no flavour, are you sure you don’t want fried rice? or noodles?” etc and I was like yes I am sure, even the waitress was shocked haha. After she came out with our plates mine looked so pretty and beautiful and Sara was like “wow yours looks so bright and healthy and our plates look so dull and greasy” (mine was just rice with steamed broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, peppers, carrots, etc). Their plates really did look disgusting, after all they were eating dead food. The couple sitting next to us got up to leave and they were like “we have to wait here a minute because we ate so much we can’t walk” and it’s just sad looking around restaurants and seeing the way people eat… it honestly breaks my heart how disconnected people are from the food they eat, and how they have zero appreciation and give no thoughts to what goes into creating those meals
