Yeah, that was more or less obvious...
 
Breaking news, folks. Guess I've made the right priorities in my life thus far. That is all, as you were.
BREAKING: A revolutionary new study has revealed that people actually enjoy having sex and alcohol more than children and religion in their lives.

This is mostly correct. 

But as with most rules, there are exceptions. Not that many, though.

And this kind of pisses me off:

A guy basically openly admits, albeit via a joke, that he feels awkwardly around women in a lab and he get's called a misogynist? 

WTF?
Female scientists were jumping on Twitter to voice their views on the controversial comments.

I think a post I put up elsewhere might explain it better:

I just had a friend, who's a manager, explain to me what the whole issue is. What we have here is an obvious difference in values [ which are based on differences in culture. ].

I'll come to the conclusion later. First of all I think that it is proper to express my feelings about gender equality:

Male and female brains are not the same. This isn't sexism, it's a medicinal and scientific fact. This has no impact whatsoever on cognitive functions. Both women and men should be able to perform intellectually about equally given the same conditions for mental growth. There may be a difference in maturing, but this is up for debate, given, that this may not be the case. The behavioral difference, which is caused mainly by hormones is not really part of cognitive functions, but it can be extremely distractive and hinder proper performance. This also is a fact.

I could go on about physical differences, but since that depends on a person's lifestyle, I think, that we could narrow it down to: Men have a penis and can't get pregnant, women have breasts, vagina and can give birth. 

What came out of the talk with my friend is this: 
On this planet more and more people enjoy the attention as victims, even though they are no real victims. Sexism and racism do exist. But some people feel offended or hurt even though no one actually has a wish to discriminate against them, nor did hurt them willingly. The "offenders" in these cases are usually surprised and perplexed by the situation. And in most cases they never realize, that they hurt someone, because they cannot think in a way, that would make them bigots who have antagonistic feelings towards the alleged victim in this case. But once they understand, that someone felt hurt by their action or statement, they are more than willing to sincerely apologize.

That is unacceptable to the alleged victims, because now they are in the saddle and won't stop until they see the "offender" burn at a stake. And this is what makes me so upset about the whole situation. It's insane.

Therefore when speaking in a public forum try to avoid saying anything, that could even remotely be taken as an insult by anyone, because someone definitely will feel offended, even though you meant no harm and never even considered a train of thought which would lead to the offense.

One of the reasons I have such a problem with this whole situation is, I'm not racist nor do I have any problem with women [ well... actually I suck at dating, but that's simply because I suck at small talk ]. I generally see people as individuals. Yes, there is statistical information for groups which I take into an account. You could call it prejudice, because it has a similar feeling to it, but it's not. I just take that information and consider it a situation that may happen. It doesn't mean, that I make that information the main point about the person I'm talking to. That would be stupid and illogical.

Lots of great news in astronomy and biotechnology this past week! The Philae Lander on Comet 67P has woken up, a monstrous galaxy has been found 11.7 billion l.y. away, Harvard researchers have developed nanotechnology for injecting directly into the brain, and much more.
Check it all out in the links below!

Comet landing probe Philae has just woken up and contacted Earth for the first time since last November

This is it... let's 3D print cities...
 
We live in the future. 
3D printing technology is becoming more powerful every year. The latest project of note will see robot arms building a bridge across an Amsterdam canal.

I don't use Facebook that much, but might be interesting for someone.
Think America has a political polarization problem? Facebook only makes it worse.

I don't think I can add anything to that sentiment.

Dick and a general pain in the ass.
Introduction
All in all mostly harmless, but a sick basterd nevertheless.

Also... if I post something offensive, it's almost certainly not meant as an offense. I generally tend to say things bluntly and/or harshly. Simply because I hate sugarcoating.

As for adding people on my side: I generally review what your posts are about. If I find the content interesting, I'll add you. You don't have to add me back, if you don't feel like it, but I'll be happy if I can pique your interest.

As for the content of my posts... I post/reshare whatever I find interesting, be it science, politics, economics or events anywhere around the world. There is plenty of information out there and it's impossible to piece a +/- consistent picture, unless you learn some things you later find not so important.

All my posts are public, as far as I'm aware, except those which I wasn't able to set as public. I do try to fix that whenever possible.

Oh... and... I'm not posting my picture. Two reasons:
1) I don't find myself particularly appealing
2) This is internet. There is no reason to look at appearance of people. We are here to share thoughts, ideas and maybe cooperate, not to ogle other people. Not to forget: I still could post a pic of some handsome person pretending to be them.. but what for?
Bragging rights
I generally don't brag. But if you insist: I'm me.
