“There’s one undisputed worst Chris”
Certainly passive-agressive. But for a reason. Manny many people, especially nerds that would read Gizmodo, believe that they are immune from fallacy. That pseudoscience is only a problem for other people and they alone are perfectly logical.
I think it was Mike Nesmith who wore the hat, and was the serious one. Peter Tork was the goofy one. They all look so young here.
I agree about these being really important stories, but maybe not the best thing for your tenure committee (unless your provost seems excited about it (I would go one step beyond just getting their ok since it seems kind of controversial to me), which would surprise me, but apparently they nixed everything rational so…
This might not be applicable, depending on the situation, but here is one resource I know of:
Glow in the Woods was mentioned a lot when I was reading various infertility blogs. I think it would be more helpful if they are terminating a wanted pregnancy, but it’s worth a look.
A second thought about the suggestion to call PP: I wonder if groups like this that do exist are purposefully not publicized or promoted at all, because they have worries about being attacked or trolled (for people who really need to NOT be attacked at a vulnerable time).
This was my same thought. My sister had to terminate early due to abnormalities and I know she had a Facebook group she found a lot of support at that I can ask her about. But I don’t know what exists for couples terminating out of choice.
seconded!! Called PP, tell them you want to help support with materials! Other than that I’d say just be there for them, check in on them as a friend and offer an ear whenever you can!
Are they terminating because they want the pregnancy but there’s something wrong? If so, fertility clinics often operate or have information on support groups for couples who couldn’t carry a pregnancy to term. If they happen to be in the DC area, I know Shady Grove fertility has one.
I know of some pregnancy loss forums that would probably be a fit if it was a termination due to an abnormality but if they terminated because having a child wasn’t right for them right now, I don’t know of any. I never thought about that. I run in circles where there is no abortion stigma and yet I have never seen…
Try actually calling a PP clinic. The folks there might be able to help you more than the website.
Ask him about him! His personal interests, his family, and how he got to where he was. And ask him for advice.
...that can’t be legit.
Take a day off from your shit job and go get the good one.
My super duper quiet cats start howling the second the carrier door closes and they don’t let up until they’re home again. I have to psych myself up it’s traumatic to listen to for an hour 😕
Lol! I listened to a couple of episodes of a true crime parody podcast this week without figuring out it was fake. It’s called This Sounds Serious. Solidarity!
I saw that one with the tribal ruler last night, cringed all the way through it. Also cringed at the distinct Shylock/Merchant of Venice vibe with the Ferengi, is that a thing? It felt super awkward!
I’m honestly beginning to think he’s trying to start a civil war.
