CHEMISTRY SETS

Apparently much more interesting a couple hundred years ago!

Those of us who grew up on chemistry sets and the like often mourn that the things available for today's children have been so neutralized in the name of "safety" and "not encouraging any bad ideas" that they give virtually no opportunity at all to learn any chemistry. The chemistry sets of the 1960's and 1970's, we remember, were far more exciting.

But that is nothing compared to the manuals provided to children of the 1850's.

This page has many excerpts in it from The Young Man's Book of Amusement, an 1852 book designed to encourage young people to explore science. No baking-soda-and-vinegar volcanos here! These volcanos are made by burying 28 pounds each of iron and sulfur, and waiting 12 hours for the resulting exothermic reaction to blow its way out of the ground. But this is quite tame compared to its detailed instructions for replicating Ben Franklin's nearly-lethal "key and kite" experiment, or Col. Williams' experiments on blowing things up using freezing water, or manufacturing your own fireworks, or experiments with rather fascinating titles like "Method of Receiving the Electrical Shock from a Cat."

It is fortunate that this book was published before most of what we politely call "the chemistry of energetic materials" was developed, or I'm quite certain it would have had instructions for enterprising young fellows to mimic the work of Dr. Nobel or Dr. Haber.

Clearly, I'm going to have to find a copy of this book. ___CHEMISTRY SETS

MAP PORN

... Of the literal kinky type!

Having a hard time talking to a partner about breaking the routine in the bedroom? This map of human sexuality lays out fetishes and sexual interests over a landmass, allowing you to stick a pin on the places you've been, places you'd like to live and places you're keen to visit -- and maybe even cross out places you never want to think about again!

A clever way to turn a fraught conversation into a fun activity. Oh -- and the map comes with a glossary, just in case you don't know all the lingo (don't feel bad! I didn't know a lot of it the first time I used the map, either! Also, people are fascinating. It's a lot less weird to bring up your sexual interests when the map has at least 80 far, far weirder things on it 👌👌👌).___MAP PORN

The real Skittles question is "Is my life more important than that of thousands of refugees?"

If you're so terrified of the world that you'd condemn others to poverty, war, and death rather than take any risks. By all means, go lock yourself in your house with your guns. I'll be out on the street greeting our new neighbors.

I literally have no idea what to expect with these debates, but I can promise you there will be a lot of frustration for everyone watching and especially for the two participants.

First debate is on Monday the 26th. Prepare your snacks and adult beverages... and maybe those foam brick things some people are fond of for football games.

#SignalBoost  

A thought. If you're a larger black man and a member of this group, would consider this? In light of the horrible Terence Crutcher shooting, I'm thinking of trying to start a Twitter and Facebook trending topic with the hashtag #BigScaryBlackGuy but instead we post pictures of ourselves with our families, or on the job. Kind of a point/counterpoint to the silly, bullshit notion that part of the reason this man may have died is because he was of "intimidating" stature. Anyone want to jump on this?

If you're in, let me know and I'll retweet you. Let's start one hour from now. It's currently 7:30AM PST. If you can't wait, go ahead and put it up and post here your twitter handle and I'll retweet.

RIP Terence Crutcher and every other brotha who has senselessly died for being black.___ #SignalBoost

ELECTION EDUCATION

Or, why we are a 2 party system and not a 3+ party system. Quoted from the FB post:

I'm posting this because a lot of people don't actually seem to understand how our voting system works! If neither of the major party candidates gets enough electoral votes to become president, the House of Representatives picks the president. In other words, if a third party candidate got enough electoral votes that neither Clinton nor Trump won, it would go to the congress, which is currently Republican and would presumably choose Trump.

This is why we have a two-party system and will probably never have anything else. It's basically built into the Constitution. If a third party disrupts the election enough to make a difference, the president is chosen by a party already in power. A real third party would actually need to replace one of the two major... more »

If a third party disrupts the election enough to make a difference, the president is chosen by a party already in power. A real third party would actually need to replace one of the two major parties to create significant change.

[Edit to further clarify, because some people don't know the math: a candidate must get at least 270 electoral college votes to win. If none of them get at least 270, Congress picks from among the top three.]

Here's my source:
http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/faq.html#no270

What happens if no presidential candidate gets 270 Electoral votes?
If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most Electoral votes. Each state delegation has one vote. The Senate would elect the Vice President from the 2 Vice Presidential candidates with the most Electoral votes. Each Senator would cast one vote for Vice President. If the House of Representatives fails to elect a President by Inauguration Day, the Vice-President Elect serves as acting President until the deadlock is resolved in the House.___

THE HILLARY MASTER POST
aka On Hillary's Negative Feels

This is it. I've been collecting these links for months to try and express a thing I'm seeing but haven't been able to verbalize. Please read all the links. You'll find both hard facts and well-written opinion here, and I'll update it periodically as I find more excellent words in other places. Feel free to drop more links in the comments.

TLDR: "I just don't like her" for vague or nit-picky reasons is not, in any way, equivalent to disliking the raging bigot that does whatever he thinks makes him look good to his followers in the moment. Democrats are not "as bad" as Republicans. Do they live up to your moral standards? Probably not. But they are not down at the level of the Republicans and to say so is willfully ignorant.

UPDATES

In case you missed this yesterday! We have some sweet sweet updates coming to this little active little ghost town ;)

Via +Yonatan Zunger​

Bringing the new Google+ to more people

Last November, (http://goo.gl/Yn6mjA) we introduced a preview on web of a fully redesigned Google+ to make it easier for people to discover and connect around unique and interesting things. From a Japanese astronaut sharing his experience in the International Space Station (http://goo.gl/JZQ7wH) to food lovers sharing their passion for breadmaking (http://goo.gl/wEh0C8), people are using Google+ to explore their interests more than ever.

Since introducing the new version, twice as many Collections are followed per day and there are 1.6 million daily new Community joins. Many of you have also shared feedback and requests, and we’ve been listening (http://goo.gl/IMLvy7).

Today, we’re announcing three new updates for Google+.

First, some new features. You can now have richer conversations by adding links and photos to your comments. We’re also offering Community owners and moderators more control over who posts what with approved posting. Finally, we're launching a new notifications center on the web where you can see and manage your recent activity on Google+. These features will be available across the web, Android and iOS in the coming weeks.

Second, if you haven’t yet previewed the new Google+, over the next few days we’ll upgrade you to the experience when you sign in on the web. You’ll still be able to toggle back to classic Google+ for the time being.

Finally, businesses have told us that they’ve found Google+ to be a valuable way to help employees share ideas and expertise via Collections and Communities, and we’re looking forward to making it available to more organizations. Today, Google Apps users already using Google+ (http://goo.gl/GxGRXo) will also see the new experience (goo.gl/IJtbah) when they sign in and in the next few weeks, Google+ will become a core Google for Work service.

From the interesting (http://goo.gl/yP2QJp), to the surprising (http://goo.gl/3dk0Xs), and the delightful (goo.gl/gix7s6), we hope Google+ continues to help you discover amazing things from passionate people.___UPDATES

Resource Roundup
#NamasteBitchez

This post will be pinned.

So my app test drive post got me to thinking, and I thought it could be useful to have a resource roundup of sorts that folks could bookmark. Websites and exercises test driven not only by me, but by other followers of Namaste, Bitchez. I'm going to start with my favorite resources and then as people comment, they can contribute their own, and I'll go back in and edit the post to reflect contributions (along with any commentary or recommendations provided, with a PlusMention of the person who recommended it in case you'd like to contact that person in particular.

Celest Pereira
Level: Some beginner videos, a lot of advanced pose tuorials.

She's got an amazing, friendly personality, and her vlogs are super entertaining.

CROSS TRAINING
Resources listed here don't hold to one methodology or another and offer a variety of fitness approaches.

FitnessBlender
Level: Beginner to Advanced

Methods: HIIT, Tabata, strength/resistance (weights and bodyweight), cardio, pilates, yoga, low impact.

Description: Daniel and Kelli are some of the absolute sweetest fitness YouTubers I've ever come across. Kelli has shared some difficult stories over time (her own struggle with an eating disorder and how she overcame, for example), and they're just... they're genuinely nice people. They perform each workout and struggle right along with you. I've laughed in a number of videos with them because they're grunting, I'm grunting, we're all sweaty and wore out at the end, and there's just something super satisfying about the "This workout is complete." at the end of every workout.

Cost: YT Channel is free. Website is also free, with "calendars" for purchase that will walk you through a program. They also sell merch through their site.

CINDY POO

She is good people. Help a good people?

So.... I'm having a problem. It's kind of a big one really. I don't want to go into all the details because it is a long convoluted tale that I'd rather not detail. The point is, I need help. I need to move. I have been giving myself a thousand peptalks to try to keep my sanity, but I need to get out of this house. I hit my breaking point with the stress today.

Thus, I am here on the internet with my little hand out. I am not the type to ask for help ever, even when it is sane and logical to do so, but today I fell into the realm of the desperate.

I've found a place that is small and cheap. It is closer to the college I am currently attending, and only a block away from where I will be attending in the Spring. I just need the funds to get out of here. I do not want to wait until December because this situation has become unhealthy and intolerable.

I'm offering rewards in the thing that I'm good at: Art. Specifically, greeting cards with whatever the hell thing you want on them. Like motorcycles? I can do that. Have a thing for ponies? I'm there. Big honking fan of Deadpool? Aren't we all. Just let me know what thing you want, and I'll draw the thing. $25, $50, and $100 reward levels.

If you can help, that would be awesome. If you can share this, that would be excellent.___CINDY POO

Taika Waititi is my favorite director. I might have unreasonably high expectations for the next Thor movie.

CAPTAIN AMERICA

I normally don't post every bit of everything I read (y'all would be drowning in Marvel news since I read 2-10 articles daily), but this is worth posting, because I want discussion.

Thoughts? This is huge.
