Jen is busy developing a vaccine against superstition today, so I’ll be providing your links!
- Can a Mouthguard Turn You Into the 6 Million Dollar Man? â€“ I’m going to guess “no,” unless the 6 Million Dollar Man had trouble with nighttime tooth-grinding. (Thanks, Only Cheryl, who hints “Watch the stance of theÂ dentist change during the “strength” tests before and after using theÂ mouth guard.”)
- Is Botox the Key to Happiness? â€“ A reminder of Wiseman’s experiments that showed frowning makes you sad as opposed to the other way around. (Thanks Steve!)
- Honor Killing By Any Other Name â€“ The murder of women and girls justified by religious and cultural reasons may be more prevalent than you think. (Thanks, lower depths of humanity)
- Utah Legislature Shows Scientific Ignorance â€“ They passed a bill forcingÂ encouraging women to see the heartbeats of their 3-week fetuses before having an abortion. What’s wrong with this picture (anatomically as well as misogynistically)? (Via Feministing, as was the previous item)
