As if Wikipedia wasn’t addictive enough…

Micek’s Tumblelog points out the fun and addictive nature of playing 6 degrees of separation using Wikipedia. The object of the game is to pick two random articles and see who can connect them using the fewest links. The game makes sense, since the nature of Wikipedia is to start looking up avacados and ending …

Why don't astronauts float away on the moon? Heavy boots, of course!

If you’re not facepalming, you should review your introductory physics book. Either way, there’s an excellent summary about this particular question that really shows how little the average person understands basic scientific principles. Here’s the introduction: “About 6-7 years ago, I was in a philosophy class at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (good science/engineering school) …

The racial double standard

It really irks me when people say we’re “post-racial” or “colorblind” now that Obama is president, because it’s obviously not true. If you need convincing, here’s a good example: “As a black father and adopted white daughter, Mark Riding and Katie O’Dea-Smith are a sight at best surprising, and at worst so perplexing that people …

Christian Websites

I’m not sure what’s worse. Seizure inducing websites that look like they were made in the 90′s, or the most extreme, intense, James-Bond like Flash-happy websites. Neither seem to make me want to convert to Christianity much. Speaking of crappy Christian websites, I skimmed through the Westboro Baptist Church’s upcoming hate mongering sites. Apparently May …

Oh drunk people

This week is Grand Prix week at Purdue, which is basically a week long excuse to party and binge drink 24/7, culminating in a go-kart race. Being the defective college student that I am, I fail to see the appeal in these activities. I plan to hide in my apartment as long as possible, since …

Pepsi: Funding the evil Homosexual Agenda

I always knew there was a reason why I prefer Pepsi over Coke. The American Family Association (which you know must be awesome because it has “Family” in its name and has a big Jesus fish behind its logo) is organizing a boycott of PepsiCo. Why? Because Pepsi is supporting the evil homosexual agenda! What …

TMI time!

I had my annual womanly check up today. I find it quite depressing that that’s the most action that I’ve gotten in months. A two and a half year long relationship with constant sex suddenly ending sucks ass. It sucks more ass when you’re still living with your ex, and he’s doing his new girlfriend …

Pie Update: Slice #2

Ate a piece of pie with lunch today. A dangerous experiment, since I had class two hours later. Didn’t experience much past stomach gurgling and a couple burps. Was the first time a fluke? Have I biased my results by willing myself to eat the delicious pie without getting sick? I think further testing is …

Officer elections

The results of the Society of Non-Theists’ officer elections tonight can be summed up by my friend: “We now have three attractive women as our officers. By the way, the contracts you all signed include mandatory matching leather outfits. What, you didn’t know about those? Club attendance will skyrocket!” But it’s sort of true. We’re …
