Thoughty Thursday: Things that made me go hmmmm on the interwebz, July 13-19, 2014

First, a big ole THANKEE to everyone who tweeted, retweeted, favourited, or otherwise promoted my Tipsday post. It’s seriously the most twitter action I’ve received from anything I’ve put out there so far. I know, I’m still a minnow in this SoMe sea, but ripples are still being felt. Warm fuzzies!

Now onto the thoughty harvest.

Colbie Caillat’s Try. We are all beautiful just the way we are.

How the brain processes emotions, from PsyBlog.

This has always bugged me. Why do I always seem to choose the slowest line at the checkout? You may be interested to know there’s psychological basis for it. Doesn’t make it any less irritating, but still.

Five things everyone should know about introverts. The mind unleashed.

Fancy a cuppa, guvnor? National Geographic’s Taste of Travel column.

A giant hole appears at the “world’s end.” Where’s Simon Pegg when you need him? 😉

Non-human DNA found in the remains of Otzi the Iceman. IFLS.

Moar IFLS: Friends resemble each other genetically. Just cool.

Nina Muntaneu posts about flying algal ships. This too, c’est cool.

Duke’s last day made me bawl like a baby. So wished we could have done this for our Zoe.

Looking forward to the new season and the new Doctor. How about you?


The Nerdist made my day with this LEGO Day of the Doctor.

This is just weird, but I received it Sunday morning from Julie Czerneda. A screaming goat rendition of the Doctor Who theme? Woke me up, SMILING!

Hope strange ideas swirl in your writerly dreams tonight.
