Speak Your Mind: The Boob Tube

I love television. I really do. I love having stories told to me over a period of time. That’s kind of a weird thing to say, but it’s true. However, I have a hard time finding things that I like. As I’ve become more aware of social justice issues, I …

Speak Your Mind: Life, the Universe, and Everything

One of the most common counter-argument I hear when I advocate for evidence-based decision-making is that there are some things we just don’t understand. Science doesn’t know everything and we shouldn’t give it too much power over us, lest we lose our humanity. The question at the core of this …

Speak Your Mind: You Know What I’m Going to Ask

Unless you’re new to Teen Skepchick (in that case…WELCOME!), you know that we have a bit of a thing for Doctor Who. (Well, at least I do. The rest might just be humoring me.) Last Sunday, while I was supposed to be writing and doing work, I was feverishly scanning …

Speak Your Mind: Favorite Toys

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I finally decided to part with hundreds of dollars and buy an iPad. And oh my gawd I love it. It’s so useful! What took me so long? In fact, it’s so useful and fun that my dear partner went green with …
