Awesome video blogger Laci Green has gotten some pretty horrible harassment and direct threats of violence coming her way for making informative and sex positive videos on YouTube. You can read about it on her tumblr, I don’t feel like reposting those screenshots here. I can only hope she has taken them to the police. She […]

I don’t have much to say about the discovery of the Higgs that has not already been said, other than this: It is also quite fun to observer ignorant and clueless people post comments like these: Thanks to @leftytgirl for the last image.
