Link, Plank, Plunk

[+1 internet for naming the composer this title is in reference to.] Didya see that? I was posting regularly last week! Nearly-almost-daily! It was great! It’s going to keep happening, I promise. However, I’ve just had two finals in two days and my brain has given up on almost anything but simple sentences and sleep. …

How To Respond Badly

Sharing problems is hard to do. Our society values being “drama-free” over dealing maturely when drama–as it inevitably does–happens. We’re supposed to fix it ourselves, or just ignore it. Because that’s what you do, right? (If I ever meet whomever made up the stupid rules of society, we are going to have Words.) As a result, we …

Do Something Good

Rob Lehr is an awesome guy. He’s the one and only person behind Hambone Productions–which does all the videography for Skepticon. But here’s the thing about videos–they don’t work for the hearing impaired. Transcripts do. They’re also useful for people who want to quote excerpts, people who don’t have lots of spare time, people who …

Thanks Giving

The history of Thanksgiving is not exactly a cheerful story of sharing and bounty. However, I am full of thanks, and I do appreciate the importance of sharing the things we cherish. I am grateful for my friends, the ones who will poke and prod a Tofurkey into our dinner tonight, who won’t mind if the …

Happy Linksgiving!

I’m seriously considering this as a regular repository for the worst puns I can make. Maybe I’ll make it a contest–can I best the last one? I hope the Americans among you are celebrating…turkey and stuffing or something. Stephanie has some recipes for you. I’m staying at home, catching up on classes before I head …

How Girls Evolved To Shop

Rebecca Watson’s talk at Skepticon 5, which made my sides hurt from giggling. So, back in the day, men were hunters and women were gatherers…and now, men like museums while women prefer shopping…And the researcher in question noticed this on a trip to Prague. He went with some friends, and all the men in the …

Care [Spoken]

Last week, I wrote a post about caring. It had been burning a hole in my brain all day, and I scribbled it on the back of two different sets of notes and left me fidgeting in class. When it published, about half the comments were “This is Bad. You should feel Bad.” But then everything was …

The Weight of It

We give so little weight to our thoughts. You can push them away and mold them and let them be and more than anything else, just not think about it. This is a sharing story. It’s personal. It’s descriptive. This is your trigger warning. I’ll let you in on a secret. I won’t ever reread my …

I Link I Can, I Link I Can!

This link roundup may include bad puns. I wrote a thing at Teen Skepchick about how to actually create a new generation of skeptics off the internet. Six rules for allies. Lead a Good Life, by Trey Malone.  To hear men and women speak of our culture as some Feminazi PC nightmare is embarrassing. To …
