I came across a blog today, written by a female scientist
(apparently - it's an anonymous blog and that's okay, if Obama's teleprompter can have a blog
I suppose anyone sentient can also, but anonymity speaks of a certain paranoia) and she wondered if men perceived science setbacks differently than women. So I began to wonder too.
I'm no expert on shaving products or Australians(1) but this new Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women Bikini thingie, with a razor on one end and a waterproof bikini trimmer on the other, is not supposed to be used on cats. I am sure of it. Yet, right there at the end of this video, a pussy is clearly shaved.
I am all for science breaking the laws of nature and stuff but shaving animals for sport is just wrong.

On March 30th, Josh Witten told us about a new site
, The Jenny McCarthy Body Count
. He's apparently not a fan of Jenny, no matter what she looks like. I am not sure I understand that kind of thinking but whatever...
On April 2nd, uber-blogger of Discover Phil Plait
/Bad Astronomer tackled the same issue.
Okay, I am going to do something that will cost me my Republican voter card - I am going to recommend we reopen a government agency, the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA).
As I briefly laid out in The Science Of Baseball: Coefficients And Happy Haitians
, people like home runs though baseball purists don't necessarily think much of them - unless their team gets one.
Important business has taken me out of sunny California and across the country to the slightly warmer March days of Florida; baseball spring training.
I maintain an affection for spring training even though I no longer live in a winter climate where a few days of sunshine after 5 months of cold can truly be appreciated. But I spent my childhood in Florida, in a baseball haven aptly called Dodgertown, so cold climate or not baseball in spring is a necessary ritual. It gives me a reminder I haven't seen my family in a year and spring baseball is somehow both better and worse than regular season baseball, when it becomes more of a business and obviously played by the best of the best.
