"I came to the conclusion that as violence in this country was inevitable, it would be unrealistic to continue preaching peace and non-violence. This conclusion was not easily arrived at. It was only when all else had failed, when all channels of peaceful protest had been barred to us, that the decision was made to embark on violent forms of political struggle. I can only say that I felt morally obliged to do what I did."

You guys need to be reading Black Science if you are a science fiction fan. Pretty sure I’m in love with this first issue, it’s perfect
DECOMPOSITION & DECAY *
In our modern-day human culture, decomposition and decay have often come to be viewed quite negatively, with the former mainly associated with things that are rotten, have a bad smell and are generally symptomatic of death, while the latter is similarly viewed as very undesirable, whether it be in terms of urban decay, or, on a much more personal level, tooth decay. However, they are vital processes in nature, playing an essential role in the breakdown of organic matter, recycling it and making it available again for new organisms to utilise.

Misty Day + Stevie Nicks
I swear, if Stevie Nicks doesn’t make some sort of cameo in an episode I’m gonna be really disappointed

So glad Rebecca Watson is back on YouTube. Despite the fact that the internet will NEVER FORGIVE HER for gently advising against asking out a woman alone on an elevator late at night because it will probably make her uncomfortable. And also “fans” of Skeptics Guide to the Universe apparently email Steve Novella all the time asking him to take Rebecca off of the show.
Haters be damned. We need more women who are passionate about science and thinking scientifically. There are a lot of reasons why skeptic’s societies are sausage fests, but I think this whole Elevator-gate shit is a perfect example of a boy’s club in action. For a subculture who prides themselves on being especially enlightened and especially logical, they sure went fucking apeshit.
Didn’t know those idiots were/are trying to her off the podcast for the whole elevator-gate fiasco… Fucking ridiculous. She leaves I stop listening to SGU probably
