- Question of the week: What Ever Happened To Waterbeds?
- The radical plan to destroy time zones. I’m… skeptical.
- Donate Your Old USB Drives to Fight North Korean Brainwashing. I’m legit considering sending some in.
- Why fruits and vegetables taste better in Europe. They really do! “The experts told me we can just as easily grow food in the United States that’s as delicious as — or more delicious than — the food you eat in Europe. It’s just that most of the time, we choose not to. […] American farmers put an emphasis on yield and durability, not flavor.” Stop it, farmers!
- How being awesome became the great imperative of our time.
- Sci-Fi is Realistic Fiction. “Dismissing science fiction as not being realistic fiction is often just a way of avoiding thinking about difficult topics.”
- Imagining Your Future Projects Is Holding You Back.
- Going Medieval. On the presence of people of color in Eurocentric medieval times. Hint: they were there!
- This Chart Shows Who Marries CEOs, Doctors, Chefs and Janitors. You plug in your career, and it shows you statistically the career of the person you’re likely to marry. Weird. And, at least for me, not accurate.
- Getting Married Is Not an Accomplishment. “Being popped the question is still more celebrated than academic and professional pursuits of women.”
Things of Note:
First off, if you are a fan of Pride & Prejudice, you must go see Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Not just because it’s a surprisingly fun time, but also because Matt Smith (yes, the former Doctor) is hands-down the BEST Mr. Collins ever. Ever. I’m not even joking. Go, see it. (This was our Valentine’s Day movie date, and we both enjoyed it quite a bit).
Secondly, that thing I hinted at last week that I’m launching on my business blog? It’s up! It’s a new series called Storybook Romance, where I design faux wedding invitations for fairytale and literary couples. Part portfolio builder, part promo pieces, part pure paper & bookworm fun. See the first post here.
