Here, have some links!

In a couple hours I’ll be on a plane to Portland! I’ve set up some posts to go up during my absence, and I may blog at the conference if I get burnt out on evolution (unlikely, I know). Until then, here are some interesting stories I’ve seen recently to keep you busy.

    Have fun in Portland. Beware though, that place gets weird very quickly. I swear that half of all Discordians live there. I need to make a pilgrimage someday.

    “Romantic songs make women more open to dates” : I wouldn’t trust a study that uses songs by Francis Cabrel and Vincent Delerm. In the first case I think women gave her number just to punch the guy later because of his bad taste ; in the second case, they were just too bored too notice someone asked for their number. ;-)

    I stumbled along your blog whilst browsing. Anyway, I really like it! It’s great to read writings by other liberals! :)

    Ahh, yes, Des beat me to it. Unless that cat has some serious genetic abnormalities (which are quite rare) it is indeed a female

    No, really? The big cat is a lady cat, and the little one is her kitten feeding? It’s just a normal image taken out of context with an amusing caption slapped on it?Tell me, have you ever heard of Lolcats?

    Yes, I read ICHC regularly. But imagine the same photo with humans instead; would you have laughed if the person on the left was clearly, obviously, unambiguously, indubitably female? They could at least have picked one with short hair and a flat chest.
