  1. I was trying to log onto Skepchick right when Rebecca’s post hit, and I guess they had to shut down their servers for a bit, because I got their umbrella graphic. My first response was: “Rebecca must have poked the bee’s nest again, I can’t wait to see it.” I want to punch men these days.

    I was reading Greta’s post earlier today. As usual, she hits it out of the park. It prompted a hard facepalm once I made the mistake of scanning into the comments, though, where, like clockwork, “yes, but…” appeared.

    Thanks for pointing me at panda-gate. My forehead can use the workout. ;)

  2. Yeah, Rebecca posted something on Twitter about an overload. But it seems this particular bee’s nest needs poking.
