Skepchick Quickies 4.26

  • Posing like a man – You may remember Jim Hines' earlier post on posing like a woman. Now he responds to, "But men are objectified too!"
  • G-spot anatomy found in cadaver – But just one cadaver. So scientists, get out there and do more dissecting! From Kirsten.
  • Free vaccine class with Paul Offit – A gaggle of Skepchicks have signed up, have you?
  • Holistic research or quackery – The University of Aberdeen is considering establishing a chair to be funded primarily by an anthroposophical clinic. Edzard Ernst explains why anthroposoophical "medicine" is BS. From Glenn.
  • Cute Animal Thursday! This week, we have something special. Surly Amy just got a new puppy named Rocket, so below the fold you'll find some of the photos that have been making the Skepchicks squee all week. (And yes, I'm a day early. Oh well, puppies for everyone!)

    1. *headdesk* We have now officially reached the portion of the semester where I don't know what day it is. But still, have some puppy pics. Obviously, my brain needed a cute break and decided to share it with you all. :)

  1. This vaccine course is awesome! My parents were anti-vax, but after I got all of mine needed to leave for university. Since then I've been looking for a long-form information session.

  2. Is he a Basenji? Soooooo cute either way.
    Also I totally make up puppy-based lyrics to songs and sing them to my dog… glad I'm not alone in that.

      Rocket is supposedly what is called a Decker Terrier which is a "big Rat Terrier" which itself is an oxymoron. And it's a "breed" that has only sorta started existing since the 70's when people started breeding rat terriers with bigger dogs like Basenji. So good eye on that! In actuality, I believe he is an absolutely freakin' adorable glorified mutt.
