Wednesday Reads: Tired and In the DarkPosted: March 20, 2013
This is going to be a pathetic morning round-up. Honestly, I am just too tired for anything other than a link dump, which is what I am giving you.
First this article about the HPV vaccine, you remember…the one that Michelle Bachmann declared makes little girls become crazed sex fiends. It is crazy not to get this series of shots…Why don’t teens get shots for HPV and other diseases?
My daughter and my son have gotten this vaccine, on recommendation of their pediatrician. At least they are both safe, from getting HPV and giving HPV which causes cancer.
More health news, well…if being unable to sleep straight through the night is a sign of Alzheimers, than this next link is also bad news. Lost Sleep Can Lead to Weight Gain
Hmm, that must be the reason my ass is sooooo huge. Lack of sleep and addiction to carbs. Go figure.
This next story is heartbreaking, and disgusting, and maddening all at the same time: Facing Protective Orders and Allowed to Keep Guns
You can probably tell from the article’s title that it involves violence against women.
In nuke news: US orders nuclear sites to upgrade vents
Take a look at this, evolution going on right before our windshields. Study: Birds evolve shorter wings to survive highway traffic
And to end this link dump…a couple of space articles. One story that deals with the heavens during the light of day, and the other during the dark of night…
10 surprising space objects to see in the daytime sky: A rundown of space objects visible under the right conditions to the unaided human eye during the day.
A beautiful image of last night’s moon and planet Jupiter from EarthSky Facebook friend VegaStar Carpentier in Paris.
Treat this as an open thread, and have a wonderful day.
