Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
Three years ago, researchers fired whisky to the International Space Station as part of an experiment to see how the conditions in space change flavours. Next month, the whisky will return to Earth.
Scotland’s contribution to space research. Good job.
A Psychological Study Has Found that People Who Are Generally “Too Nice” Are Also The Ones Getting Hurt The Most
I’ve been described to be a lot of things, artistic, sarcastic and the like. One that stuck to me though, was that I was nice. Too nice. But it’s not a bad thing, right? I mean we were all taught to be nice to other people. Ellen DeGeneres’ tag line every time her show draws to a close is‘be kind to one another’, so it’s a good thing, right?
