Friday Fluff – January 28th, 2011

By Razib Khan | January 28, 2011 3:30 pm


1) First, a post from the past: Theological incorrectness – when people behave how they shouldn’t….sort of .

2) Weird search query of the week: “khoikhoi woman in porn.” I had a suspicion I knew who entered this search query, but it came from Kumasi, Ghana. So unless a certain someone is doing fieldwork, I guess not.

3) Comment of the week, in response to Portlandia:

Razib, is this post locally grown? And I know it’s organic but is it *certified* organic?

4) And finally, your weekly fluff fix:

  • John Hawks

    No, I think he’s too busy for that right now…

  • mdb

    You know you always ruin the weird search query – first page is nothing but links to you. I suppose I could look further, but that is unlikely.

  • Tom Bri
    I really enjoyed your blast from the past post, must have missed it when it first came around. The link above is to a novel on line which explores the evolution of consciousness, relevant to that post. And it’s got vampires!

    “khoikhoi woman in porn” Why has it never before occurred to me to google this?

  • EcoPhysioMichelle

    No point in googling it now, everything links here. :)

    PS, Razib, you cat doesn’t appear to have a face.

    Razib there was something really odd about the cat photo — I thought I was looking at a one-eyed cat with a serious wound on the left side, and a possible wound on the chest, or maybe a very red tongue.

  • Razib Khan

    i suck @ taking photos. i’ll have the pro get back 2 it. the “wound” his his red tag.

  • M. Möhling

    don’t look cats into the ears–goes for most pets really. Don’t hold your nose too near to their ears, either. No, I’m not petophobe.
