link love

We are at a conference.  Or at least we are in a big city eating yummy food.  A conference may have been involved.  Not many links this week, but each one is excellent and worth reading all the way through!

Mutant super model gets ready to love math and show up that evil high school teacher who should be flagellated.

Dr. Crazy talks about how this (word that means separate into two parts that don’t overlap… bi-something) into women who want/have children and women who don’t is incomplete and inappropriate.  She hits compensating differentials and differing circumstances.  The comments are also excellent, and well worth reading.

On what seemed to be national blog book review day, wandering scientist recommends a really interesting sounding book about the first woman to circumnavigate the globe… which she did as a working class botany assistant disguised as a man.

I had to go to xkcd explained to understand Friday’s comic. That lead me to this. Enjoy!

    Have you seen “Downton Abbey”? I highly recommend it. Netflix has the first season on demand, and PBS’s website has this season’s episodes to stream online.

    OMG that video is hilarious. I’d heard the song but the visual gives a WHOLE NEW MEANING to the “wiggle wiggle wiggle” lines!

    Um, “bifurcate”?

    And thanks for explaining that XKCD. I think.

    Yeah, me too. Glad I wasn’t the only one who had no clue about the xkcd.

    BTW: The “xkcd explained” link needs a bit more link love.

    Aw thanks for the Link love. That LMFAO song came on the radio and my daughter knew the words. Very weird to have your daughter, 5 years old, sing I’m sexy and I know it.
