a little foreplay can replace AND out-do these contraptions.

The “language of flowers” is an awesome thing. My favourite bouquet is currently orange lilies and monkshood, which approximately translates to “I hate you and I’m coming to get you.” You really can say it with flowers!

I’d recommend a copy of She Comes First, so that it can be read, digested and incorporated by February 14.

They end up with control because rational, non-religious people in this country don’t give a shit about things like school boards or local elections, especially if they don’t have school-age kids of their own, and don’t bother to attend meetings or participate in elections. On the other hand, the religious nuts see it Read more

Slithering Bull Sperm is either the name of my new band, or my go-to exclamation for moments of crisis. Or possibly both.

_really_ thought this was a fuckin’ play button, and was intrigued at the idea of seeing this shit happen in real-time. It blows my mind where these wildlife video(and/or photo)graphers can get cameras. I saw this one shit where these people managed to get a tiny camera inside a bee (or maybe wasp?) colony, where they

That may not only be a gender thing. I sometimes feel intimidated when I date men who have impressive degrees and are smarter than me, but that’s mostly because I sit there and go “Well, what’s the point in him dating me? What’s he going to get out of this”? Conversely, I think men can get intimidated by my sense of Read more

the paper also engages in the wince-worthy description of what they call “marginally significant” or “near significant” data. Read more

I’ve dated brilliant women, and ended up marrying one. She speaks 3 languages fluently, and is teaching herself another with the goal of it making it easier to learn yet another (Lots more Czech tools here than Slovak). She has a masters degree and is going for her PhD. She tutors a lawyer in Spanish (She’s an Indiana Read more

Yeah, really. You have to at least buy a cassowary a nice dinner first, maybe take in a show.

That picture is probably of a spayed lady cat who doesn’t have to go through barbed penis sex anymore.

Man, Biology is just fascinating. I don’t study it enough to really comment intelligently here, but it seems like mother nature just goes, “Yup, that’s a creature. Looks like it can reproduce, sure, good enough then.” Never mind that the production of the creature involves organs destroying themselves, or lots of Read more

Chimerism is a great way to freak out middle-school aged children; they know just enough about biology to understand it and have seen enough “evil twin” movies and television to be worried they might be chimeras. I first heard about this in conjunction with a story about a disputed paternity case where the results Read more

It has an entire chapter on homosexual sex and says “it is to be engaged in and enjoyed for its own sake as one of the arts.” There is a detailed description of oral sex between men, categorizes men who predominantly desire other men as “third nature,” and refers to long-term unions between men.

Reminds me of one evening when I was out walking with some friends and we came across a garden spider’s web. A male was repelling down to share some quality time with the lady of the web. We stood there for about 30 minutes watching his careful approach and maneuvering. We all cheered when he made it out alive. Read more

I remember learning about K vs R strategists in biology, and then later learning how it’s “not quite that simple.” It’s so fascinating that such simple creatures as scorpions actually provide care to their young. It definitely shows how simple classifications can be muddled by reality.
