Musician and blogger, Amanda Palmer, gave this TED talk back…
Alrighty! It’s the end of the week and I’ve found some pretty interesting things on the internets again! Take scroll through my finds, I have a mix of funny, serious, and a little bit in between.
This weeks links range from kids who display some pretty witty humour in their test papers, an article which may lead a few ladies to rethink their attitudes when it comes to sex, and a video that will leave you in a meditative state :D.
Ok, if you’re looking to get a bit zen and chill out for a few minutes, take a look at this video. I didn’t expect much when I hit play, but for some reason, found myself completely absorbed once I started watching. Rather relaxing, I’d say.
The images in this link are truly striking. The best I can say is that I was happy, and sad, and a little bit perplexed by the photographs I saw. Take a look, this is a great opportunity to see how the rest of the world lives.
This article left me wondering… The premise being the popular belief that teenaged boys are mostly the aggressors when it comes to sex; and a new study that has come out to contend that, actually, many teenage boys feel they are being coerced.
“There was nothing outwardly headline-grabbing about Bryana H. French’s latest study… So why the media scrum? Because the authors concluded that “43 percent of high school boys and young college men”—yes, boys and young men—“reported they had an unwanted sexual experience and of those, 95 percent said a female acquaintance was the aggressor.””
I think this article turns the general idea about male sexuality on its head, and I would love to hear what you think…
Ok, ending things on a laugh here, I found myself chuckling quite a lot with this link. One of my favourites was the student, who, when asked to assume the role of a Chinese immigrant in their test paper, actually wrote their answer in Chinese! There are some real gems, take a look…
Hope you enjoyed today’s post. I love reading and responding to everyone’s comments, so feel free to leave a comment of your own.
