Bloggies & other things
Apologies for the late post. I’ve been procrastinator extraordinaire lately, relishing the fact that I don’t have 15 hour days of reading and schoolwork. But I have some things to tell you.
1. If you are so inclined, you might nominate Teen Skepchick as Best Teen Blog for this year’s Bloggies. Rebecca has some recommendations for other blogs to nominate, including Skepchick. Modesty organ, gone. (Note: Look at the past years’ teen blog nominees and you might agree that critical thinking needs to be thrown in the mix. I’m just sayin’!)
2. I want to remind the boys out there to wear their deodorant. Not only because it’ll make them smell better, but it seems to make them confident enough to attract women, as one study shows. One of my roommates this summer refused to wear deodorant because he thought it caused cancer. (The evidence is shaky.) In sweaty, humid Philadelphia, on the third floor of a poorly ventilated house, this was a horribly smelly idea. Please do not do this. You might knock someone over with your stench.
3. Check out these horrible/hilarious science fair projects. This includes “Voice of the dragon” and “Garlic: the silent killer.” These kids look like they’re serious about it.
