Here’s an encouraging article for those of us who are interested in gender equality (read: not jerks). The gist of it is that matrilineal cultures raise girls who are better at spacial reasoning than patrilineal ones do. It’s an interesting idea, but I still want to take over when it comes to reading a map.
This is when I wish I had a million readers so they could really have at it in the comments.
I had never thought about this, but also never use Apples crappy apps. The thesis of this guy’s post is that it’s weird that Apple has such great hardware design and really junky, kitschy apps. There’s even a bonus quote from Milan Kundera!
RandoSteve tells us what he thinks about Jakson Steeze. I’ll have to check in with our own JH ‘core-espondents, but he may have some points. That said, to me his hat screams, “I’m trying too hard and my grandma can’t keep up.”
In other news, if the skinny jean aesthetic comes to BC skiers then i’m so in.
I want a wall sitting desk. Lou gives us some insight into how to stay in shape for ski season. It can basically be slimmed down to: run or cycle a lot, do some strength training, and eat salad instead of beer.
I personally prefer the hellish “Vertical Mile” wherein, on an outdoor 400m track, you lunge for one lap and then jog for one lap, repeating until you have done four of each.
Well, a magazine rated a bunch of cities. The conclusion that comes to (my) mind is that we Denverites don’t think our city is as sweet as the visitors do. Maybe we need to spend more time on the 16th St. Mall.
The National Parks Service just announced their new list of free days for this year. Those will also be the days on which I will not be in the parks. BECAUSE I’VE GOT A PASS!!! And there will be horrible crowds.
We’ll shortly return to videos of bros hucking their meat and such. For the time being though, we’ll be continuing in the Women’s Blog vein. Maybe this baby will be cross-posted on Sociological Images.
So while cruising around the tubes, I found this article, which claims that babes ought to get hitched while the getting’s good. What a difference three years can make! If you decide not to lock that jams down then maybe you should head to the doc/freezer like, yesterday!
Also: In the Beyonce video from yesterday, she opined that it is important for a man to marry his ladyfriend with the quickness. It appears that some other single ladies may disagree with Ms. Knowles’ thesis.
Also there’s this. Is it an anti #ows protest? I’d assume that many of these folks would tend to agree on politics, but IPHONES ARE JUST SO DAMN TEMPTING. Where’s AAPL again? Oh yeah. This hurts my brain. I think I’ll just have to get a new iPhone and go live tweet the action tonight. See you there!
Post Scriptum: Apple’s headquarters is on a street called Infinite Loop. Obviously we should just put all the protesters and iPhone waiters there. It’s infinite.
