[Spoiler Alert] It’s now been nearly a month since I put down my controller for the last time after playing Sekiro:Shadows Die Twice. I had just defeated the demon of hatred after running around him in long circles for what seemed like an eternity (luckily there was no stamina bar), taking advantage of the very […]

“The difference between the mathematical mind {esprit de geometrie) and the perceptive mind {esprit de finesse): the reason that mathematicians are not perceptive is that they do not see what is before them, and that, accustomed to the exact and plain principles of mathematics, and not reasoning till they have well inspected and arranged their […]

Post 1,168 Yes, from the Suicide Forest, to the best way to die… to cryogenic freezing, this week on this blog has been a lot like Shark Week, except, instead of sharks, it’s death. That’s the theme. Death week! Not too different to Shark Week. Both are a bit ‘deathy’ if I’m being honest. But […]

Less than 50 of our 20,000 genes are unique to humans. What separates us from monkeys?

A Writer's Words

As a writer (I keep saying this because I feel that if I keep saying it it’ll make it true. It is true! But at times it doesn’t feel true) I think about the question “where do you get your ideas?” If I ever acheive some sort of fame I may be asked this by […]

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

You might have heard people saying that the attention span of humans is decreasing day by day. If you think it is exaggerated, you’re not entirely correct. While technically there is nothing wrong with our attention span, there is no denying that it is becoming impossible for anything to hold our interest for a long […]

Hello, everyone! I want to start off this post by declaring that I hate Margaret Mitchell. In Gone With the Wind, she wrote a novel so heartbreaking, so compelling, so gorgeous, and so vilely racist that I am in a state after finishing it. After a solid week of devoting hours and hours to this book, I […]

We were split into groups and were tasked with designing a city. The goal was to use the combined knowledge of Ap Human Geography and Ap environmental science to design a sustainable […]

It was a gruesome death, and a bad sign. Minnesota, where an outbreak is raging. There is no treatment and no cure. And Minnesotans in the know are starting to worry. Deer are the stars attraction of our $ 1.3 billion hunting industry. So far, they have been confirmed havoc on the deer farming industry. […]

I was under the impression that Scott Alexander had written a review of The Righteous Mind, but apparently I was mistaken. He has a list of hightlighted passages, but no explicit review. As such, the task falls to me. Jonathan Haidt has gotten a lot of attention in the last couple of years for his efforts […]

By PonyH8R I was looking at the painting Convergence (by Jackson Pollock in 1952) like, last Tuesday, and I noticed something which I had’t seen before. Now that I seen it I can’t believe I never noticed it before. Take a look and tell me what you notice. Take in the whole diggity dang picture. […]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where book bloggers are invited to share their top ten lists centered on a certain theme. Due to my blog’s normal schedule, I am not always able to participate in Top Ten Tuesday. However, this week I am. It was all set to […]

Bible Belt Biker Babe

It’s been a minute since my last blog post.  My most recent trip was up to Tennessee and into the Blue Ridge Mountains with a few gal pals with bikes.  We planned to meet up for a women’s riding event and scout out the area a bit.  This was the first time I’ve ridden in […]
