studying undergrad-level anthropology/archaeology
wishing to learn more about osteoarchaeology, paleopathology, and bioarchaeology
needing to satisfy my curiosity of people, cultures, and places.
I'll try to keep this blog as academic and anthropology-related as possible. For my personal page full of dancing gifs, check out ichwanderegern.tumblr.com
17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
“chuffed doesnt mean what you think it means”
it means exactly what i think it means its just some stupid word that literally has two definitions that mean the opposite thing
what in the shit pissing fuck
This makes me really chuffed.
This post is quite egregious
Well I’m nonplussed by this whole post.
Last night I realized what one of the little holes in my life has been, and it was brought on by the strangest thing. Good marketing? Maybe. I was watching the Oscars from my hotel room, and a commercial for the iPad Air came on. Various clips of people being happy and doing things. But it made me realize that I’ve been missing some awe and wonder in my life as of late. Travel has spoiled me, especially after the year I just had. I need to be somewhere that makes me feel small, whether it’s natural or man-made. Immediately I thought of Durham Cathedral, which I visited in July of last year. But I really could use some more natural wonder-type stuff. The New Jersey landscape can only go so far. A little over a year ago, I visited the Nevada desert just outside Las Vegas on the way to the Hoover Dam. Amazing. I’m just sorry we didn’t get to see the Grand Canyon in the same trip.
In short, I have been spoiled, and now expect more.
