6 O’Clock BS: Zen Lab Work


I love doing protein concentration determinations. There’s something calming about calculating dilutions, pipetting precise volumes, being able to trust the objective evidence of the OD280 readings. … Oh, the lies I tell myself when the work day runs long. Yay! Moar dilutions, moar reps! Blarg. I mean…Oooooohm.

6 O’Clock BS: Gluten-Free Pizza

IMAG0105 (1024x577)

Tonight I made gluten-free pizza! I used a Red Mill Mix, but it required yeast and mixing and other related baking shit, so I think it counts as fancy cooking. First, the crust: The yeast had to sit for a few minutes, then I added the eggs and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Then the …

6 O’Clock BS – I <3 Flash Mobs

I’d love to find myself in the middle of a flash mob someday! What a great vehicle for expression and a memorable way to show that you’ve organized people to make a statement*. Speaking of – if anyone has a link to video of the California Domestic Workers “Respect” flash mob that was supposed to …

6 O’Clock BS – That Came Outta There!?

It looks like this is a bit older, but if you haven’t seen it… This is a cool video of a very big stick insect hatching, unfolding from its teeny tiny egg. I just want to reach out and help him get those last bits of leg free! C’mon insect buddy – you can do it! …

6 O’Clock BS – Tweet o’ the Day


Man – the internetz are ‘sploding with goodies today! The top news story that I’ve seen in my Twitter and Facebook has probably been responses to Todd Akin’s terminal (perhaps literally, at least with regards to his campaign) foot-in-mouth comments about legitimate rape and how us uteruses – errrr….I mean women - can magically destroy rapesperm and …

6 O’Clock BS: Ooohh…burn!


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The Atheist Pig is awesome. Go read ALL The Atheist Pig. All of it. The Atheist Pig <—Unnecessarily linked thrice. Because The Atheist Pig is worth it. (<—That’s four)

6 O’Clock BS: Signs of the Times


First – Happy birthday to the Mall of America. This past Saturday marked 20 years since the doors first opened at the mall. Yeah, yeah… cursed MOA with it’s consumerism and overconsumption and blardeeblarblar. I like the mall. It has an aquarium. And LegoLand. And a ropes course. Anyway, yesterday we passed this sign: It …

6 O’Clock BS: Dave Silverman Throws the First Pitch!


This evening I’m hanging out with over 170 of my fellow atheists, secularists and freethinkers at the Midway Stadium in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Tonight Minnesota Atheists and American Atheists are hosting “An Night of Unbelievable Fun” with the Saint Paul Saints. Or rather…the Mr. Paul Aints! Here’s a really crappy, zoomed in photo of Dave …
