  • Guess what happened to a Tennessee high school teacher [pictured] who dared to defend atheist and LGBT students’ rights to free speech from their social-conservative administration? (Bittersweet ending.)

  • Oldie, but Dr. Rachael Dunlop has an awesome, all-in-one debunking of nine antivaccination lies and myths. (Includes bonus self-defeating antivaxxer attacks in the comments.)
    (via Bad Astronomy)

  • And finally, give every U.S. President in history a combat knife, restore them to their peak physical condition, and throw them in an arena. Who would win? (Teddy FTW.)
    (via @radleybalko)

  • @joemcken: I see him as the kind of guy who'd get revenge for nicking him by stabbing you in the eye twelve times with your own knife, and then call you a coward for not living to fight longer.

    @VeritasKnight: No, he's more like...well, since we have to fight, then kills you, and laments the sad nature of human combat in a lusty voice.

    (I just had to share that.)
