Post apocalyptic novels, logical fallacies, and eating disorders

I haven't done one of these in a while. There are so many links I wanted to show you, I probably forgot most of them. Let's start with this blog. This is so great, it's actually an online post-apocalyptic novel. Check it out, I know I loved it.

This is obviously hilarious because is from Cracked. Another interesting article from Cracked is this one about logical fallacies and how we are wrong most of the time.  Also,check out this link with a new study about autism and this one about a new therapy that might help children with autism say their first words.  This other one is about new evidence about earliest humans in Europe. If you are not sure of your path in life, read this article about signs that you might be giving up your dreams.

This article about the role of family in the treatment of eating disorders is fascinating. Here's John Carlton's website, he's only the BEST COPYWRITER IN THE WORLD.

Today I learned about Impostor Syndrome:


Impostor syndrome describes a situation where someone feels like an imposter or fraud because they think that their accomplishments are nowhere near as good as those of the people around them. Usually, their accomplishments are just as good, and the person is being needlessly insecure. 

I'll leave you guys with this nice song:

  6. Eating disorders.. My little nephew has all sorts of tricks - he would eat slowly at the table, and once a while ask for an excuse.. quickly run to the toilet to spit out the food he in his mouth!

    When parents turn away, he will pass a chunk of his meat (chicken or fish) to the sis plate! Well kept secret as the sister.

  8. Insecure could also be from lack of self confidence, suppose thats why they feel they are good enough.

  11. Thanks Ann, Wan, yummychuncklet, Jasna for all your wonderful comments!
    Sarang Mangi, I enjoyed that blog too. I will do some research on dream theories and hopefully write about them in my next post with links.
    Katrina, your nephew doesn’t have an eating disorder, some kids just don’t like eating; he won’t have this problem in a few years.
    Nava K. you are right.
    Sie, I am ok, just so busy lately, thanks for stopping by.
