Suggestion Saturday: January 2, 2016

Here is this week’s list of blog posts, short stories, comic strips,  and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web. Once again, this Suggestion Saturday is larger than usual. There have been so many interesting things to read lately! Haha.

Don’t Look Down via Johnny_Spacey. Isn’t it interesting to hear stories about other people’s lives? The twist at the end was fantastic as well.

Making My Mark. Yes, I know I’ve been sharing a lot of links to this comic strip recently. I love this guy’s work so much that I simply couldn’t help myself. 🙂

Where She Came From via JazzFeathers.One of the things I find most interesting about studying history is seeing how much certain things can change in one generation. It doesn’t always take a long time for a society to change its mind on a particular issue or idea.

New Year’s Resolutions. Hilarious.

Before the Measles Vaccine: My Sister’s Story. What a heartbreaking story. I wonder what the writer’s sister would have done with her life in an alternate timeline where she never caught the measles?

What It’s Like to Parent While Homeless. I have so much compassion for this family.

10 Ways to Keep Warm Through Time via EnglishHeritage. Wow, am I grateful for modern heating after reading this. Which one of these homes would you want to spend the night in?

From The Physicist Eulogy:

You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died.

From The Legend of the Snow Fairies:

Yes, child. Of course it’s alright to love winter. The snow fairies love it, too.

The story you heard today was told from a wrong perspective. See, in that time, the people needed an explanation for why winter was a sad time. They didn’t like the cold because their food didn’t grow and they had to eat dried food. Today, you can play in the snow and marvel at the frost, and come inside and I will fix you a hot drink. Are you ready? I’ll tell you what really happened.

What have you been reading?
