Suggestion Saturday: May 26, 2012

Here is this week’s list of tests (another first for Suggestion Saturday!), blog posts, comics and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

I read an average of 665 words per minute for the three different selections in this quiz. One one selection I answered two of the three comprehension question correctly. I got perfect scores for the other two. How many words per minute do you read?

The Benefits of Being a Ghost. I don’t have an opinion on the existence of ghosts but this was really funny.

Of Dogs and Lizards: A Parable of Privilege. A thought-provoking, modern day parable about how the same environment can be experienced in completely different ways by different individuals. Do I agree with the assumptions the author makes? I don’t actually know yet. But I’m intrigued by them.

The Dragon in My Garage. Another parable I came across this week. While the narrator and his neighbours argue about invisible dragons that may (or may not) actually live in their garages I sit across the street and wonder why they prefer arguing indoors over sitting peacefully in the warm sunshine. 😉

What have you been reading?

  1. I really like the practical ending to the privilege story. Basically, we need to listen and not argue. Good stuff.
