Paintings From The Space Lab

The annual sci-fi event in Minnesota known as Convergence happened recently, and I was thrilled to once again be a part of it.

We pack the stages with as many women scientists as we can and we also organize a lot of fun geeky-art panels and workshops intended to inspire and educ... »

Turn Coconut into Bacon

Turn Coconut into Bacon

I posted this yesterday on my vegan food blog but it’s such a fun bit of kitchen magic that I had to share with you all. Enjoy! Just the other day I posted about how I love to make vegan BLT’s whenever a meat-eater says, “WHAT ABOUT THE BACON?!”  In other words, I eat a lot of vegan BLTs.

A Love Letter To Our DDoS Hackers

Valentine’s day is just around the corner and love is in the air. Can you feel it? The air smells sweet, like a hollow, two dollar, white-chocolate heart. I look forward to biting into it with my pointy little teeth.

Homeopathy as “medicine” is created by introducing an ingredient or specific chemical into a water or alcohol base that would cause the symptoms (in a healthy person) that you are trying to cure in a sick person.
