I don’t believe in reincarnation, but if I did, I would hope to come back as the Naked Mole Rat. Popular Science tells me that the Naked Mole Rat is immune to cancer. Why? (Devrah, you’re gonna like this)
Turns out, humans only have one gene that protects us against cancer, p27, whereas that pimp, the Naked Mole Rat, has two. Their second gene, p16, is expressed in a way that instructs cells to stop dividing.
Other things Popular Science told me about the Naked Mole Rat that makes me want to be one in the next life:
- Naked Mole Rats have mad longevity. They swagger around way longer than other stupid rodents.
- Their lips are behind their front teeth. They’re smiling all the time. Makes sense, they don’t get cancer. I’d be happy, too.
- They breathe mostly through their skin.
- Acid doesn’t burn them.
What better animals is there to be?
Now the only question is, what do I have to do in this life to get the Naked Mole Rat hookup the next time around?

Trivial Pursuit has an online Battle of the Sexes going on. I’ve been answering trivia all day at jorb, and with my brilliance, have been adding point after point onto the Girls Team.
Okay! Off I go to engage in Weekend Shenanigans!

Several weeks ago on Fuckbook, I posted the following quote as my Fuckbook status:
“I call myself a feminist. Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights?” ~Dalai Lama
I got some little “Like This” thumbs-up signs and the following comments:

every time this waste of organic matter opens his mouth my blood pressure rises to the point that you can see the veins in my forehead. my fists clench, my jaw tightens, my pupils dilate, basically my entire sympathetic nervous system goes bat shit. i cannot STAND this guy. how he’s held office in Ohio for more than a term is waaaayyy beyond me. seeing him tromp around behind dubya and parrot everything the bush administration had to say was just gross. and now he’s basically taking the opposite position of Obama on every single issue, just to be contrary and show how “Christian” and “Conservative” he is. he doesn’t work for the American people, and certainly not for Ohioans.
he’s against doing anything about America’s energy policy (besides offshore drilling and more subsidies for oil companies), about tax loopholes and subsidies for huge banks in the financial system, about lobbyists (shocking!), about improving America’s foreign relations and foreign policy, and now we can tack on HATE CRIMES legislation to that list.
that’s right, boehner is opposing the inclusion of the victims of violent crimes committed because of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and disability (protections are currently extended to victims of crimes based on race, color, religion and national origin.) when his office was questioned about WHY on earth you wouldn’t want to protect people who are targeted based on sexual or gender identity, his spokesman responded that Boehner “supports existing federal protections (based on race, religion, gender, etc) based on immutable characteristics…He does not support adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes.”
that’s right! WHY would you base any of your political stances on SCIENCE??
so, recap: boehner believes that RELIGION is not a personal choice of a person, but that SEXUAL ORIENTATION is. this guy is so backwards i’m surprised that he’s not aging like Benjamin fucking Button. holy christ.
