86 percent believe personal behavior should be included, 78 percent say travel history, 55 percent responded that nationality should be considered, and half indicated that personal appearance should be included. Four in ten said that race should be a factor.


Why does the last statistic seem to require a different style of wording? Perhaps I'm being sensitive, but nuances like these catch my attention and makes me wonder why they wrote what they did the way they did. America seems to vacillate between politically correct about the stereotyping that comes with race, and profiling, or something. I don't really know. Just feels that way...

language shaping the way we think

what is it about 20-somethings?

occasionally I feel like I should branch out into reading articles from other news sources other than the new york times. I have CNN and National Geographic on my twitter feed and I occasionally click on links from there, but somehow NYTimes suits me best.

My attention span is still terrible. I skimmed the first one, read the first two pages of the second. Going back to finish the second one now.

article on nytimes

tl;dr of it is that there is more to animal cruelty than you would think - it is one of those small indications of a larger problem. Also, there is an interesting commentary on the biological/neurological pathways of empathy near the end of the article that deals with sadistic behaviour and cruelty. There's a bit of 'people get fucked up but they still can be helped, especially when they are young'.

I'm pretty sure I used to think that one of my reasons against getting a pet would be that I was afraid I'd hurt it...

The Female Factor - In Sweden, the Men Can Have It All

In this new world of the sexes, some women complain that Swedish men are too politically correct even to flirt in a bar. And some men admit to occasional pangs of insecurity. “I know my wife expects me to take parental leave,” said a prominent radio journalist who recently took six months off with his third child and who preferred to remain anonymous. “But if I was on a lonely island with her and Tarzan, I hope she would still pick me.”

lol this.


The coffee cup that has cooled down
a little is like a merry-go-round
It mimics our inertia

Let's kiss one more time, and
expose your secret
Beyond your tongue and mine,
there's the truth...

kiss twice, kiss me deadly,
