But, they still don't get the punchlines!

“When we quantify implicit biases, people are given a tangible representation of the cost of prejudice,” she says. “Many people conceptualize prejudice as being subjective, emotional, and open to the interpretation of the victim. However, thinking of prejudice in this way can lead to ‘victim blaming’ because people assume that the victim’s depiction of the events is self-serving. By quantifying these biases, researchers make the bias more objective.”
Recent experiments put numbers on everyday discrimination, shifting the dialogue away from victim-blaming and anecdotal observations.

Kids have such an awesome view of the world
 
This is too funny! Lmfao @ #10 & #15.... 
We know that kids have a tendency to say some hilariously funny things.  But what makes it over-the-top funny is the setting and timing at which they say them.  They seem to say the funniest things at moments which we would consider to be totally inappropriate. In the moment of pressure dur

Introduction
I live in the East Bay Area in NorCal.  Moved here from Colorado over 6 years ago and I don't plan on leaving... EVER!!! I hella love it here.
I was born in Germany to a German mom and American Redneck dad (his words, not mine... he is actually really smart, don't let him fool you!).  
Then I lived the typical army brat life of moving everywhere til they settled down in Colorado.  Not the worst place ever, but I am glad to be out of the bible belt.
Traveling, trying new things, and keeping my mind going are really important.  I love to cook and eat. Drink wine and cognac. Dance! Listen to and play music... and attempt to be smart ;-).
I believe I am slightly crazy cuz I am back in school to make sure I don't lose my nerd license.  
Bragging rights
Got my Bachelor's in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering! I still have those weird nightmares where I get told I didn't really graduate.
