We all want to help the environment, so this is your chance, but in small steps. I recently came across boxed water and learned about all its benefits when I got a free boxed water in Bedford, Williamsburg. It was great, I’m sick of using plastic and living in an industrial age where we’re all forgetting each other and befriending machines.
i have decided to remove god dammit/oh my god/etc from my repertoire of amazing vocabulary. the way i see it, why should i expect him to damn things, or call out to him or whatever when i am not a believer. it's a little hypocritical, methinks.
"Another intriguing study was reported in a 2003 issue of the Archives of Sexual Behavior by anthropologist Mathew McIntyre. McIntyre had 44 gay male members of Harvard University’s gay and lesbian alumni group mail him clear photocopies of their right hand along with a completed questionnaire on their occupations, sexual roles, and other measures of interest. This procedure allowed him to investigate possible correlations between such variables with the well-known “2D:4D effect.” This effect refers to the finding that the greater the difference in length between the second and fourth digits of the human hand—particularly the right hand—the greater the presence of prenatal androgens during fetal development leading to subsequent “masculinizing” characteristics. Somewhat curiously, McIntyre discovered a small but statistically significant negative correlation between 2D:4D and sexual self-label. That is to say, at least in this small sample of gay Harvard alumni, those with the more masculinized 2D:4D profile were in fact more likely to report being on the receiving end of anal intercourse and to demonstrate more “feminine” attitudes in general.”
“Who is more humble? The scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us, or somebody who says everything in this book must be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of all the human beings involved?”—Carl Sagan (via atheistinspiration)
