using the toddler's foot as a phone is also apparently HILARIOUS.

On Overflow Skull Storage, and More

this is GREAT. it is my DREAM to work in a natural history museum.

at the last university lab where i worked, we one day got a department-wide email that said "we found some moose heads in one of the freezers, does anyone know whose they are?"

On This Is Pretty Much How It Would Go

ok, help me develop my lifestyle: subscriptions to oprah's magazine are currently $18 for a year, PLUS $35 for subscriptions outside the US. this comes out to about $4.50 an issue. WORTH IT OR NO?

On He Doesn't Know If You've Been Bad or Good

if you're an imaginative, bookish, and also reasonably perceptive kid, you get really used to the feeling of things being real to you but not real in real life. i figured out the truth about santa gradually and it was super non-traumatic, i think because it was about the same as looking up and going about your day after being super-immersed in a book. it's fine!

On I'll See Myself Out

POLICY PEOPLE! does anyone know of a good, user-friendly resource for labor statistics for countries other than the US? i've got an officemate who occasionally likes to be like "wellllll, i don't knowwwwwww" about sexism being a real thing, and i can't use american salary data to back up arguments because then he'll be like "well we all know AMERICANS suck..." (if it turns out that income disparity is in fact less in Perfect Europe, i'll be happy! but i suspect that it is not.)
