I'm sure that the more god-fearing of these philosophers would agree with you, actually

When put like this, I'm not surprised that I keep seeing brain researchers say that Spinoza was right in their pop-science musings: they're kind of inherently biased, starting from the question of "how does a mind spring forth from neurons?"

I mean, Spinoza totally WAS right of course.

How to Be a Good husband During "Ladytimes"

I have a theory.

Since I was a child, I’ve been told that women become irritable when they are menstruating, and that this is because their hormones make them irrational. I suspect that their irritability is entirely rational, and that rather than hormones, it is caused by having half of the people they deal with not understand that they are having to continue functioning despite the fact that they are in terrible pain.

I have another theory.

Since I was a child, I have heard that men don’t like to buy feminine hygiene products for the women in their lives, and that this is because the men in question are insecure. I suspect, however, that if the lady in your life mentions that she’s going to the store, and asks if you need anything, they would hesitate to buy whatever you ask for, even if it’s something totally innocuous, like Diet Pepsi, or a scrub brush, if you specify that it’s “For my nards.” This effect would only be magnified if strangers were able to look at that item in her basket and know, “She’s buying that for some dude’s nards.”

 

Also, I should point out that my disguise in this comic is sunglasses and a hoodie. I was apparently disguised as “Most other guys.”

 

Note from Missy: My brain read “for my nards” the same way one would shout “FOR THE HORDE!”

 

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

The difficult part about buying these things for a woman has nothing to do with embarrassment, and everything to do with the fact that there are so many options. It's like trying to remember a coffee order. But unlike a coffee order, it never changes, and there's really no excuse to still have trouble with it after a couple of times.

I'm trying to prove that mathematics forms a meta-abelian group, which would finally confirm my suspicions that algebreic geometry and geometric algebra are the same thing.

One of the beautiful things about math is how much of it (such as imaginary numbers) is almost completely useless except as a foundation for more math, which itself is more useful.

"I understand that I have the freedom to choose to disregard company policy. When I say 'I can't', what I really mean is that I have chosen to use my freedom to follow company policy in order to further my personal goal of keeping this job. I initially didn't see the need to say all that outright because I figured that it was implied and that any sensible person would understand what I meant. What I failed to take into account is the difficulty some philosophers have in inferring any intended meaning that isn't explicitly spelled out. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can accept this return in a metaphysical sense, but I won't accept this return in a not-getting-fired sense."

I don't care what the experts say. The experts would have me serve Merlot at my wedding reception, and that is simply not happening.

Good lord, what experts say that? That is the worst choice for a random group of people.

Well, that's what the people at the winery I visited suggested. I'm probably gonna go with a Riesling for white (my personal favorite), and maybe a Malbec or Pinot Noir for red. Even if I did think Merlot was a good choice in general, it doesn't fit our menu.

All better than Merlot for a Wedding! Valpolicella or Beaujolais could be inexpensive red options too.
