We were in this week’s carnival of personal finance.
Tenth medieval for the illegible bachelor pun…
Speaking of bullying and the war on women, CNN with a post on the politics of saying the word vagina.
Bloomberg with an awesome article that someone at GRS linked to about the value of a liberal arts education and how majoring in something “in demand” today might be useless 20 years from now. But the ability to think and to learn new things will always be in demand. Or if it isn’t, what we majored in might be the least of our worries.
Lots of stuff on the overdone mama wars piece, most of it truly great commentary (I would say better than the original article, but, um, it was too long for me to read). A couple that stood out for various reasons: This salon piece and this photo piece. Apparently there’s also a new thing out trying to attract girls to science by demeaning women, *sigh*. Stupid patriarchy. Don’t they realize it’s too hot to be obnoxious?
Wandering scientist had good stuff this week. Just check out her blog if you’re not already a regular reader.
#2 wanted to share some cephalopod porn, but apparently not enough to link it on the blog given she’s off to yet another wedding. So without further ado… whoa kinky: (not really), man i09 getting freaky over there. Not as bad as the article with the woman who ate squid and got attacked by the dead squid’s spiky sperm.
