I’m not the only one moving to a new home

My apartment is (mostly) packed, and in an hour I’ll be off to pick up my soon-to-be roommate and our U-Haul. Then the real fun begins. Blah. After some thought, I realized this will be the ninth time I’ve moved in five years. As much as I hate packing up all my crap just to …

My life is weird

As I was mulling around some indie games at PAX, a very familiar face approached me. Very familiar, because I was certain it was Jerry Holkins, the writer of Penny Arcade (“Tycho”) and half of the duo putting on the very awesome convention I was currently enjoying. “Don’t I know you?” he asked. “Uhhhhh.” I …

The church for gamer geeks

Oh goodie. I was already super excited for PAX – my cosplay outfit is done and my Pokemon team is all ready – but now I have a new thing to look forward to. What could possibly top three days of the largest video game conference in the US? Church! GameChurch.com has a booth at …

A new earthquake hypothesis

Apparently the idea that immodestly dressed women cause earthquakes is sooooo last year. The real reason? Gay marriage, duh. A New York rabbi claims gay marriage and the earthquake that shook the East Coast are directly connected. In a video uploaded to YouTube, Levin says gay rights legislation, like the gay marriage law passed in …

Gawker asks: “Was today’s earthquake another Boobquake?”

Jen responds: No. I know I said that I didn’t want to talk about Boobquake anymore, but I can’t help myself when data crunching is involved. Well, it’s also hard to ignore when dozens and dozens of people are tweeting at me asking if I’m wearing anything revealing. For the rest of my life I’m …

Scientists confirm that bisexuals exist

Oh science. You amuse me sometimes. File this one away in “We kind of already knew that, but thanks for getting actual data to make sure.” Well, I already knew that, at least. But from all of the straight people who have told me bisexuals are just slutty or want attention, and all of the …

The video of me learning how to ride a bike

My part starts at 1:14: I have to keep reminding myself that I did this for the children. Hooray for Camp Quest! Take that, PZ! And no, I swear I’m not a chain smoker. I lost my voice from having too much fun at the Secular Student Alliance conference. And yes, that’s the farthest I …

I love my dad

In case you ever wondered where I get it from. (Yes, my dad has a blog)

I am a geek

Proof: 1. I just bought this:I love Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, dinosaurs, and surrealism. How could I not resist? 2. Next weekend I’m going to PAX Prime, the ginormous gamer festival that’s the brain child of the guys who make the webcomic Penny Arcade. When I say ginormous, I mean ginormous – over 60,000 people …

That’s not skepticism – that’s bubbleheaded post modern BS

EDIT: A couple readers have pointed out that I’m wrong about skepticism not being the claim that we can know nothing. Apparently the definition of “skepticism” that I am familiar with – and honestly, the only definition I’ve heard after years in the skeptical movement – is really methodological skepticism. The author at Feministe is …
