Sunday in Outer Blogness: Exotic Edition!
Ladies and germs, I am so close to having all the boxes cleared out of my new apartment, I can just feel it!! But you know what that means! Getting so excited about sorting these boxes and getting them the ** out of my living space kinda cuts into my Internet time!! So let’s make this one a quick one. (related: If you need any still-good-junk: car seats, Ikea furniture, etc. — totally come to my place!)
Here’s a great challenge for Lent: try living without a car!! Aside from three months back in the US, we’ve been car-free for 12 years and counting — and loving it!! But don’t forget to travel anyway — this cartoon is great!
In other diversity-news, the film Lincoln inspires some reflection on the freedom to oppress. And whom might you want to oppress? A popular modern choice would be the gay. Despite all these heartwarming (or not) stories. At least being gay is OK in a fictional story.
This weeks big controversy — breastfeeding!!! damned if you do damned if you don’t!! (Simplest solution, clearly, is to avoid being a woman.)
There was also a lot of interesting number-crunching on the influx of new missionaries! Personally, I’m just wishing to see the musical! (In the meantime, here‘s a new hymn and an amusing infographic.) Meanwhile, the faithful are still battling with correlation and the eternal question of who’s an “anti-Mormon”?
Then there were some historically influential books, a journey to atheism, and perspectives on banning sexually explicit entertainment.
I hope that (like me!) you’ve been having a productive week, and feel free to relax and check out these fascinating discussions!
