I went to see Robin do is Happiness Through Science tour, (He actually comped me a ticket after talking on Twitter), and it was absolutely brilliant.

It wasn't dumbed down, some of the science references were pretty deep, but all of it was hilarious and left me feeling very uplifted.

You all need it in your life. Look it up, he's touring again in the new year.

Now all we need is a 3km long drill that will fit on a space probe... and to think I took mine to the dump yesterday!

Comment 9 by sanban :

Oh, but you can! Tell us the reason trafficked sex workers shouldn't be referred to as "sex slaves" and the places of sexual exploitation not be "whorehouses?"

Comment 6 by FeministWhore :Please don't call out the bad while re-inforcing the "sex slavery" frame that the religionist Rescue Industry has put on this issue. And "whorehouses"? I can't even.

I think the term "sex slaves" is a valid one, but "whorehouseses", to me implies that the women inside are whores, i.e. doing it by choice, for profit, not as the aforementioned "sex slaves", who have no choice and see none of the money that changes hands.

Slightly off topic, but App developers need to learn their market.

Their are almost three times as many Android users as there are IOS, yet it's always an App for Apple that they develop.

Maybe they can't hear us for the sound of bleating sheep...
