Here is this week’s list of comic strips and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Eat Your Veggies. I don’t actually like the taste of meat very much. Fish is my exception to this rule, so I completely understand where these characters are coming from. Haha!

Snatching History’s Forgotten Women from the Evil Clutches of the Patriarchy. Wouldn’t it be interesting to uncover all of the people that were purposefully forgotten? I sometimes wonder what kinds of inventions, stories, or medical/technological breakthroughs we’d have now if our species had been more cautious about preserving knowledge.

The Gravekeeper’s Paradox. This kind of stuff makes me grateful that I’m planning to be cremated after I die. It’s cool if other people find meaning in what kind of gravestone they have, but it’s not the sort of thing I’d ever want someone to fuss over in my name.

Is Death from Pain a Natural Death via LynnRWebsterMD. What a sad but also interesting debate.

Why I’m Letting My Hair Go Grey via CTCsite. Readers, how did you (or how are you planning) to react to grey hair? I haven’t decide what I’ll do yet, but I might go grey naturally like this writer.

From To My Daughters on International Women’s Day via LithChronicles:

I know you’re scared; but I need you to know that it’s okay to be scared. I’m going to tell you something that I’ve wanted to tell you for a long time now. I have a secret: Being scared is a good thing.

What have you been reading?

    I’m in the process of going gray and have been for a while. My dad started going gray at 18, so I feel lucky that I’m going gray a bit slower. Anyway, when those grays started popping up, I admit I considered coloring my hair. Then I realized how much maintenance it would be, and honestly I’ve never been one to use a lot of “product” in my hair. Then eventually I’d have to begin lightening my hair color to transition it to gray, or let the color grow out and end up being gray all at once. None of those options appealed to me. So, I’ve just decided to let it go naturally, and while I have streaks of gray (some of which are a bit unruly) I’ve discovered I really don’t mind it much.

    • Cool. I dyed my hair occasionally a long time ago. I liked how it looked, but I hated how much it dried out and damaged my hair. I basically had to wait for all of it to grow out again before it went back to looking healthy.

      So I’ll probably be like you and go grey naturally. 🙂
