Katrina Lumsden's Reviews > Fifty Shades of Grey — Hahahahahahah. (Via Marta Murvosh.)

Artificial jellyfish built from rat cellsReverse-engineered life form could be used to test drugs. Wow. (Via [info]danjite.)

Aurora and dumbass Americans[info]ms_daisy_cutter slices and dices conservative rhetoric about the Aurora shootings.

Why Do Scientologists Accept the Xenu Story? — Well, frankly, why do any faithful accept their foundational stories? Many if not most religious foundational stories are obvious and laughable cons when seen outside the lens of their own faith. (Thanks to [info]willyumtx.)

Ask Mormon Girl: How do you deal with the real history on Joseph Smith? — Speaking of believing in things which are patently absurd when observed from outside the framework of faith. As I've said many times, I utterly respect everyone's right to believe as they will. That doesn't mean I have to respect what people choose to believe.

Mitt Romney’s ‘exotic’ problem — I find this analysis a little forced, frankly.

The Conservative OnionI really don’t think there’s been anything like this in American political history: a presidential campaign, with a pretty good chance of winning, that is based entirely on cynical lies about what the sitting president has said. No, Obama hasn’t apologized for America; no, he hasn’t denigrated achievement. Yet take away those claims, and there’s nothing left in Romney’s rhetoric.

Could Michele Bachmann cost Romney the Presidency? — Apparently, the GOP has finally noticed that former presidential hopeful Representative Michele Bachmann is a total loon. Which really doesn't make her stand out from their crowd much.

?otD: Tell me why?

Michele -- One "L" short of a full load -- Bachmann -- with an extra "N" for extra nuttiness.

Thanks! I actually knew that, but spaced and used the headline as written.

Correction in place.

He's got it right in the body too, but his headline is still off. I'd love it if Jim Graves would send her back to Iowa, where she wuz born and raised. The loon is our state bird, but we don't like 'em migrating to Washington.
