Good Reads/Random Cool Sites (3/17/2011)

Now with more randomness!

Robert Pattinson isn't an insufferable git, he just plays one in the movies.

What it's like to burn books.

Seriously creepy pathologization of what should be normal, harmless behavior: "The Sons of Helaman is a group of young men who have dedicated themselves to helping each other overcome pornography and/or masturbation."

All the earthquakes in the world over M2.5 in the last seven days, animated.

"I know my first reaction when I hear about an 11 year old gang-raped by 18 men is that she had it coming for dressing slutty."

More Big Picture photos from Japan.

The supposed infallibility of fingerprints is being debunked.

Yay! More blood for oil!

Courage! What makes a King out of a slave?
Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave?
Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk, in the misty mist or the dusky dusk?
What makes the muskrat guard his musk?

  1. Interesting to see that they have "are proud to announce" that they "work[ed] through many kinks", and that they "are including young men from long distances in our groups using video conferencing".

    Nothing quite says "we're there for you" like offering to, you know, like, use "modern technology" so you can do the big "M" together.

    And they only charge $40 for a group session. Sounds like a bargain to me.

  2. The whole thing just gives off a creepy vibe, doesn't it?
