Has Science Explained Life After Death? →
No, not entirely. But it’s an attractive header, yes? Anyway, how insane would it be to have a combination near-death experience and out-of-body experience? YIKES! Is it really just REM gone haywire? Or is there some unfathomable explanation that contemporary scientists can’t pinpoint? All I know is that is some trippy stuff.
Overshare Alert: Sore Feelings and the Battle of...
Okay. So, the three of you who read this blog may have noticed that I haven’t made a real post since I departed from America.

Safari in Los Angeles, in a home in MacArthur Park →
This is such a travesty to what journalism is/was and could still be. Quirkiness and snark have their space, but there’s an inherent lack of connecting the deeper layers of what they are observing in their blog. It’s so disgusting they treat living with an immigrant family in LA like an episode of animal behavior on some National Geographic show, or just another way to trump the famed...
