Skepchick Quickies: Transgender Bathroom Rights, Anti-Masturbation Crusade, Colon Pill-Cam

On February 5, 1971, the Apollo 14 astronauts landed on the moon. This trip was notable for the commander, Alan Shepherd, because it was his first trip back into space since being diagnosed with Ménière’s disease.

BONUS: This one is for all the Star Trek: DS9 fans.

  1. Sounds like you still have to do the purging diet before swallowing the pill camera, That’s actually the bad part, since they pump you full of Demerol during the procedure, and so I just slept through it previously.

    The Pill-Cam article is very timely. Today’s the day when I can’t eat anything but chicken broth, black coffee and black tea. I’m already suffering from severe vegetable cravings, and it’s only been since Sunday. I don’t have to take the MoviPrep (propylene glycol) until this evening, which is when everything literally* goes south. (My heart goes out to people like Sarah who must have to do this frequently, not just every 5 years like us bearded old white guys with health insurance.)

    [*] In the modern sense of literally.

  2. What’s really funny is, it refers to people not working full time. The reality is, if 7 people work only 35 hours a week, you’ve suddenly got another 35-hour-a-week job available. (Obviously this depends on which hour of the day they take off, but it’s more something that applies when you talk about hundreds of workers.)

    Of course, Republicans will go through the same song and dance: “It’s Your Own Fault You’re Not A Billionaire” in D Minor.
