Lazy Sunday

I haven't done a link round up in a while, so I apologize (again).  Here are some awesome links I came across a while ago, and some more recent ones.  Check em out and leave the authors some love.

"Politics of Peeing: Test-driving a Go-Girl": awesome review of the device that lets us ladies pee standing up.

"Your Truth is Merely Truthiness, Friend": Liss of Shakesville on walking away from God. Though I can't say I've ever really believed in God, I can sort of relate to her post.  From the post: "I was learning how to get into Heaven. I wasn't learning how to be a good person." I applaud her for making that distinction.

"The Anatomy of a Tucker Max Joke": Tucker Max really only has like 6 or 7 jokes, and this post breaks down the formula.  Best quote: "I have one big problem with the “but it’s just funny!” defense. If an appreciation for Max’s “facts” requires only a sense of humor, and not latent misogyny, racism, or homophobia, why are his fans willing to listen to the exact same joke over and over and over again? It’s the same fucking joke."

"Schrodinger's Rapist: or a guy's guide to approaching strange women without being maced": which reminds me: I should buy mace.  This is a must read.  (Some) men need to understand sometimes ladies just want to function in public without being hit on.  Sometimes, we're just not interested (some of us are already in relationships).  This handy guide will teach you all about why we may not be interested, and about bare minimums (i.e. eye contact is usually pretty important.  No eye contact?  Then you should probably leave us the fuck alone).

"Then God said, 'Let there be sex,' and God saw it was good":  This is in case anyone should accuse me of being anti-religion/God, which I'm not.  I thought this post was quite awesome: "And somehow my mama managed to bring God into our discussions without bringing in guilt."
