Thinkin' About String
We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work.

Insights from the doctor who coaches athletes on sleep. Pair with the science of what actually happens while you sleep and how it affects your every waking hour.

More on sleep here.

harmalade:

the rescuers movies are so full of weird racism and misogyny but damn that little Mouse UN song is catchy

harmalade:

The Rescuers Down Under manages to convey so much white imperialism for a movie with only two major human characters, ostensibly with an animal rights message

Sexual attraction patterns are set early in life and are very resistant to change. I'm generally not attracted to black women, and at almost 30, that's really unlikely to change. It doesn't make me racist, it just means I grew up in a racist culture, which affected me when I was a preteen, which I've consciously worked on overcoming. Berating people for being honest about something they have no control doesn't do much to further the goal of equality and just makes people more defensive.

Hey asshole, first of all, if you somehow think all black women are the fucking same, you’re fucking racist as shit, and the fact that you think you have no control over this, or can’t at least find the basic decency to shut the fuck up and be embarrassed about this terrible part of your racist brain, that’s what makes you extra racist. Who the fuck cares if racists get defensive, they fucking should, you idiot.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean you have to be anti-science. I do believe in The Big Bang Theory, I just don’t think it’s funny or deserves six seasons.
