National Novel Writing Month WIN!!!

I just wanted to share that I just passed 50,000 words in my National Novel Writing Month novel!  Although the novel is not done because the story is far from ended, I have completed the number of words required to win NaNoWriMo.  I am so excited that I just wanted to share it with everyone and say that I highly recommend participating in National Novel Writing Month!  <3

Science can only explain what it can explain. You must learn the science behind things before they can be explained. Asking science to explain what happened before the Big Bang, for instance, or any unobservable, unrepeatable event given our current understanding, is to misunderstand the very nature of science. Just because we don’t know something doesn’t mean science can’t explain it. And conversely, faith should never explain anything. That’s kind of what “faith” means. Don’t try to explain things with faith; it’s like trying to propel yourself forward with farts. You feel like maybe all the pieces are there, but it falls apart under scrutiny.

Although propelling yourself forward with farts might work in space, it doesn’t work well on Earth.  lol

Welcome to: If Male Superhero Costumes were Designed Like Female Superhero Costumes!

Aaaaa I dunno. I got tired of guys having no idea why girls find female superhero’s costumes kinda sexist, so I, um, made this?

My main goals were: 1) Make it so the first thing you think of when you look at them is sex, whether you want to or not. 2) make it so that any male human who looks at this feels really uncomfortable. 3) make it funny, because, well, it’s kinda hilarious really.

Not trying to start a war here, just wanted to poke a bit of fun.

So, here you go menfolk, welcome to being a girl who likes comics.

Sexism is everywhere and it gets ingrained into our minds at an early age.

Around 1954, Bell Labs, the research arm of the Bell Telephone company, began working on automating the process of connecting [phone] calls, known as switching. More than 10 years and $500 million later, Bell Telephone unveiled the first large-scale electronic switching system, or ESS. Although the company advertised that “more than 2,000 man-years of research” had gone into ESS, one of the key figures in its development was a woman, Dr. Erna Schneider Hoover. A medievalist, logistician, working mother, and computer programmer, Hoover designed the basic architecture of the switching system, which could automatically route hundreds (and later, thousands) of calls in a few seconds. This work earned her one of the first patents ever awarded for soft-ware and a job as a research supervisor at Bell Labs, the first time a woman had held such a position.
