Have some disturbing links

The following is a man arguing that the only way for men to get back equality that they’ve lost thanks to feminism is to rape women. “So it is about time men in feminist countries such as Norway stop thinking of rape as wrong.” http://eivindberge.blogspot.com/2009/05/rape-is-equality.html Here’s an article from the front page of CNN that’s …

50 Book Challenge: 16-20

16. The Ordinary Princess – M.M. Kaye This is a children’s book and a great deal shorter than most of the other books on my reading list.  I say it makes up for those Asimov books which are long and dry.  Of course, I haven’t finished those yet.  This is sort of similar to Ella …

Quiet Night

It’s my birthday Sunday, instead of wishing me happy birthday you should leave interesting links, facts or something like this.  Haven’t got plans for the birthday part, so I’ll need something interesting to do

Great White Sharks: Verdict? Adorable.

I know I’ve shown great love towards otters and sea turtles, but I think we should talk about the one creature I love best of all: The Great White Shark.  When I was three, I walked in on my mom and some friends watching Jaws, which I was not supposed to see because it was …

Talking about movies

This is my favorite scene ever shot, the heart of which begins 1 minute into the clip.  It does what films do arguably better than any other medium, tells a complex and specific emotional story without words.*  In it, Glenn Close realizes that her guy is in love with someone else. 5 setups, breaks my …

50 Book Challenge: 6-10

6. The Porn Trap – Wendy and Larry Maltz I’ve got an interest in mental health, and this book is about something I knew very little about, porn addictions.  Having read the book I’m pretty sure “porn addiction” is code for anti-social and in need of some good therapy that has nothing to do with …

50 Book Challenge: 1 – 5

Maybe you’re familiar with this one?  You basically challenge yourself to read 50 books in one calendar year.  I’ve decided to retroactively take on this challenge for 2010 because I’m fairly close to where you need to be in the year in terms of books read. I have finished 18 books (it’s week 20 of …

World Cupdate

So, I’m not a sports person generally, and I’m not even a football/soccer fan regularly, but I really love the World Cup.  I mean, I like soccer, I’ll watch it, but something about the countries competing against each other is really cool, and it’s all in the same sport and not as lame as the …
