Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Advice for new parents...

In honor of Father's Day, which we celebrated this past weekend, I'd just like to direct you to a post over at the delightful Skepchick. They provide an important public service by publishing a simple set of "dos" and "don'ts" for taking care of a new baby. I have to admit, some of these I would not have figured out on my own.*



Remember: The air horn should be kept at least twelve inches from the baby's head. This produces a maximally room-filling sound and will prove most effective in waking the child.



Salt lick and water? Good. Lack of a hamster Baby-wheel? Bad.



Most babies will not be ready for free weights until they are at least six months old. Start with some pilates first.



Last year over three million shoes were prematurely destroyed by babies. Help us reduce this alarming statistic.

So head on over and read the rest. Your children will be glad you did!

I have the book! I did once make the mistake of sending it as a gift to some estranged family members shortly after they had their first child. They were not amused, the miseries!

I've seen all sorts of these baby do's and don'ts pictures. Although I like your take on their meaning.
