A new era for Pharyngula!

I have seen the light, and all future blog posts will be automatically generated by reionizing their electrons. Life will not only be easier, but more profitable. Namaste. The goal of ultra-sentient particles is to plant the seeds of consciousness rather than delusion. To follow the path is to become one with it. By blossoming, …

Got sand in your…?

Do not search for information on getting sand in your genitals. It’s a morass of nonsense out there, with all kinds of bizarre pop culture notions. Most of it seems to be about getting sand in your vagina, which is treated as slogan to mock and trivialize women’s problems, but getting sand under your foreskin…oh, …

I’m just like Jesus

We’re both bearded white guys who can’t dance.

I get email: Still looking for an obliging geophysicist

This guy wrote to me back in September, when he was regurgitating creationist rationalizations for the global flood, at the behest of wacky ol’ Walt Brown.

But then, Amazon hasn’t actually made any deliveries with their drones yet, either — at least Minnesotans have …

I need this for my cosmetics bag

Lookin' good for Jesus!

My future tattoo

I, for one, welcome our glorious future of ubiquitous computing. Researchers have come up with a temporary tattoo that functions as a computer, complete with processing power, data storage, and wireless data reception and transmission. Also, drugs. The researchers constructed the device by layering a package of stretchable nanomaterials — sensors that detect temperature and …

Don’t worry, this video is perfectly safe for work, except for the little fact that if you watch to the very end you’ll get sucked into your computer screen and transported to the 19th century. This morning, I had to fight my way through a mob of Norwegian farmers who hardly spoke any English to …

I’m sure this isn’t creepy at all

Maybe it’s just me, but are Purity Balls getting even squickier? During the ceremony, the fathers present their daughters with purity rings, and the duo become boyfriend and girlfriend No no no no no no no. Please no. A father’s relationship with his daughter should be completely different than the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. Blech. And really, …
