    Oh Isis, I am so very sorry that you are experiencing this. 🙁

    My nitric oxide bacteria might be able to help. Email me at my company, [email protected]

    take care.

    Oh Mighty Isis,

    It is good to hear from you. I haven’t been blogging in a while, but I am still doing nitric oxide stuff, now with AOBiome. We have a product where people can get the magical goodness of ammonia oxidizing bacteria and nitric oxide for their skin, our MotherDirt AO+ mist. It is a cosmetic that makes your skin *appear* to be…[Read more]

    My first comment didn’t seem to make it.

    Welcome back, but to some of us, you never left. 😉

    Bed Bugs aren’t so bad. They are crappy climbers, so if they can’t climb up onto your bed, you are ‘safe’. There are these things called ‘interceptors’, which are slippery plastic which they can climb into, but can’t climb out of.

    Bed bugs don’t spread any diseases (that are known of). They do use histamine as a pheromone to attract other…[Read more]

    The surface area thing is for ‘irrigated crop area’. The area of rain-fed crops is a lot bigger.

    But I agree, lawns are useless, but I think the figure included things like football fields (I know, useless also), but you can’t play sports on fields that are dried out and with dead grass.

    They cite a paper on the insects of Puerto Rico,…[Read more]

    There is lots of research on this, on the role of oxytocin on health. I have been following it because it relates to my nitric oxide stuff.
    It isn’t just ‘falling in love’ that improves health, doing anything positive for people makes you more healthy. Doing negative things to people make you unhealthy and will cause PTSD.

    ICE is going…[Read more]

    The

    Candy is Dandy but liquor is quicker is a line from a 1931 poem by Ogden Nash.

    In the 1960’s, he added the line ‘pot is not’.

    It is also worth noting that the parents of this young woman, were more distant genetically from each other, than are any two humans alive today.

    Chevron just agreed that humans burning fossil fuels have caused climate change.

    “Theodore Boutrous, a seasoned litigator who’s argued cases before the US Supreme Court, presented on behalf of Chevron. “Chevron accepts the consensus in the scientific communities on climate change,” he said last week. “There’s no debate about climate science.”…[Read more]

    It doesn’t surprise me that some Greek societies don’t want their letters associated with protests. That would make them a target for violent hate crimes.

    Exactly!

    Right, an atheist doesn’t need to be a decent human being, but every atheist I want to associate with, or spend time with, or talk to, or have the slightest interaction with has to be a decent human being at a minimum.

    I have not the slightest bit of desire to associate with people who are not decent human beings, whether they are atheists,…[Read more]

    The quote I start my blog post on Theory of Mind with is:

    In any great organization it is far, far safer to be wrong with the majority than to be right alone. — John Kenneth Galbraith

    Pretty obvious that if women get death threats for being good at math, it is safer to pretend to suck at math. The easiest way to pretend to suck at math is…[Read more]

    The picture the link shows is has more detail and is less provocative than other photos have been. With less detail, at first glance, it does look like they are naked about the waist.

    There is a tradition of using chamois leather for the seat of bicycle pants.…[Read more]

    • Yeah, the first time I saw a picture of the uniform I did think it was made to make them look naked on purpose. I guess it depends on how the light hits and where the cycling pad makes a shadow.

    This isn’t a recent paper, it is from 2008.

    • Any paper published during the time I’ve been working on my Ph.D. is recent as far as I’m concerned. Let me have this, I need to believe it to keep from despair.

    I had an idea on how to help with all the misogyny, hate and death threats on line, but it will take cooperation from ad providers like Google.

    The idea is that when a site posts a link or a threat or hate speech against a specific person, that the ad provider to that site diverts ad revenues to that person for all views of that hate speech.…[Read more]

    That gamergate thing is just completely unacceptable. I don’t know how else to characterize it.

    I meant no transphobia, and apologize if any was perceived. The OP was about “estrogen-vibes” and “essential” characteristics of people (which I appreciate are not genetic). The Sam Harris meme is that the “estrogen-vibe” is genetic and due to elevated estrogen due to more active lady bits.

    A graph that includes threats against every…[Read more]

    Rebecca, I really would like to see a comparison of rape and death threats received as a function of number of X chromosomes. My guess is that you are the all time leader.

    Among the menz, maybe PZ would be the leader, but he is probably 2 orders of magnitude lower.

    This would be objective data demonstrating that the “equal environment”…[Read more]

    I am quite sure that artificial sweeteners are bad for you.

    Your body has sugar receptors for good reasons, to detect and regulate the movement and use of sugar in the body. The mouth is not the only place that sugar receptors are active. They are present in the gut and regulate the pancreas to release appropriate digestive enzymes to…[Read more]

    • Not saying that you are wrong, but I would be taking it on a case by case basis.

      Aspartame, for instance, is rapidly and completely hydrolysed once it reaches the small intestine, so it is hard to see how it could have any effect on receptors there, let alone further down in the large intestine.
