truth-has-a-liberal-bias: On March 8, a family therapist named Marilyn Wedge, PhD published an ill-informed and poorly researched blog post, Why French Kids Don’t Have ADHD. In the United States, 5% of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD, and are taking pharmaceutical medications. In France, the percentage of kids diagnosed and medicated for ADHD is only .05%. How come the...

The IRS and the Real Scandal
robertreich: “This systematic abuse cannot be fixed with just one resignation, or two,” said David Camp, the Republican chairman of the House tax-writing committee, at an oversight hearing Friday morning dealing with the IRS. “This is not a personnel problem. This is a problem of the IRS being too large, too intrusive, too abusive.” David Camp has it wrong. There has been a “systematic” abuse...
I’ve become quite a fan of onion in foods since I’ve been cooking for Jessica. Also, I never realized how much I like pepper in cooking, either.
I really want to make pancakes for dinner tonight: two regular, two chocolate chip, and two pineapple. Do I go ahead and make them without clearing it with Jessica, because she probably won’t see my text until she gets off work? I just don’t know.

Jessica and I are on the Publix website looking for easy/cheap recipes for dinners, and she’s orgasming over the dessert options that keep coming up.
Jessica and I are going to lunch/dinner with my grandparents Sunday evening, and we’ve got to pick where we’re going. We’re having a hard time deciding, because a lot of the places we’ve been to in our area of Jacksonville are surprisingly good, locally-owned places. We need help, so can anyone offer any of their own suggestions on good places in the Southside/Baymeadows...

Having to explain how a political policy works leads people to express less extreme attitudes toward the policy, according to new research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. The research suggests that people may hold extreme policy positions because they are under an illusion of understanding — attempting to explain the nuts and bolts of...

rotomfrost: I M LAUGHING SO HARD AT HTIS GIF HOLY FUCLK
Jessica and I went to Masala, on San Jose Blvd. It was fantastic! The atmosphere was cozy, the staff were friendly, and the food was great. It was a great first time for Indian food. I don’t know about how vegan some of their stuff is, but they had quite a few vegetarian options. Jessica and I thought their chicken curry was great, and that their naan was heavenly (but when isn’t...
Jessica and I are going to an Indian Buffet for lunch today. Whoo! Neither of us is really familiar with Indian food, so this should be interesting.

felicefawn: Being on Tumblr all the time gives me such a deluded view of the world. I start believing that everyone is pro-choice, open-minded, have moral compass, care about animals, care about sexism, racism, body shaming, etc, but then I walk out my front door and realise that everyone is still just as moronic as they were two years ago.
Jessica and I have recently acquired our own stemless wineglasses. It is awesome.
THERE IS AN ICE CREAM TRUCK THAT COMES TO OUR APARTMENT COMPLEX. THIS IS THE BEST NEWS.
glintglimmergleam: what it basically boils down to is this: maaaybe i’m a feminist killjoy and freedom-of-speech oppressor who “can’t take a joke” or maybe, just maybe you’re a racist misogynist with a shitty sense of humor who “can’t take criticism”.
