I just had to make a post about this game. I haven't played anything like it, and if you have PS3 then you should check it out.

Oh, sure, I did help craft this summary. But credit goes to Lee Silver for exploring a timely and interesting topic: the distinction between organic and inorganic and why it matters.

I know, I know -- I'm hardly ever on here. I may live at my computer, but I can only apparently juggle one PERSONAL social media platform at a time. That said, if y'all have a moment, you should check out the G+ page for +Genetic Literacy Project -- it's a nice supplement to our site proper.

Very interesting, and supports a theory I've had about the fundamental dispositional difference between "conservatives" and "liberals". Namely that conservatives, as name implies, react negatively to new things, whereas liberals tend to seek novelty.

I've decided to revive my personal blog, where I mostly talk about pop culture. Read my thoughts on the video game Dishonored. Encourage me to keep posting!

It's always nice when someone stops to appreciate an insect, especially in an urban setting where most people are too busy bustling about to stop and appreciate a weed or an ant.
