Jason's Delicious Whole Wheat (Gingerbread?) Challah Recipe
Some years ago, a client named Leslie was kind enough to teach me how to bake challah using standard white flour. Her recipe is both simple and wonderful. She mentioned she had experimented a bit with whole wheat flour, but the resulting bread came out more...

The Times, They Are A-Changin'
While I'm still using this blog for personal posts, any writing intended for the public will be on Disinfo . Some older pieces from Boundary Crosser are likely to appear there in revised form, also. At this moment, one of those is already live.

I'm using the latest version of shieldtablet. In Star Trek Timelines, I'm getting messages saying "unable to play videos" whenever I choose to watch an ad.

Wisdom From the Airwaves: Yom Kippur Edition
I've known for a few years now that while I have always loved books, I seem to absorb important moral and philosophical lessons better from media. This Yom Kippur, just as I have several times in the past, I watched the Coen Brothers' incomparable film A Se...

Coming Out of the Golden Apple Closet
It's time for me to come clean about something: I enjoy Judaism for its cultural heritage, including folklore, mythology, and of course magical technology, but I'm not particularly interested in being a good Jew anymore. All the rules are useful in certain ...

Psychiatry, Confirmation Bias, and the Scientific Method: A Case Study
Like most people who enjoy studying psychology, I used to have very strong faith in psychiatry. Then I experienced what psychiatric treatment for a serious mental illness can actually be like, and now I'm not nearly so sure it's even a science. Neurology  i...
