- Enthusiasts find building a tiny house community is hard work:
“The whole reasoning behind living in a tiny house is that it forces you to get rid of a good amount of your possessions,” [Alek Lisefski of Sebastopol, Calif.] says. “[As a result, I’m] somewhat reliant on the community that I live in. For example, I don’t have a huge garage where I can store tools and the kind of stuff that people horde over decades of living in a house. So, if I need those things, I have to find a friend who has them or some sort of sharing program. It forces you to engage with other people rather than being shut up in your big comfy house.”
- Lesbian asks to be stoned at church that recommends it:
[The ATLAH Worldwide Missionary Church in Harlem replaced its sign about "homo demons"] with one that read "Jesus would stone homos," along with "Stoning is still the law" and Bible verses Matthew 5:17-19, Deuteronomy 17:5-7, Leviticus 20:13 and John 8:1-11.
In response, Lopez knocked on the church's front door this week and informed the man who answered that she was there for her stoning. "I saw your sign and I'm here for my stoning, I'm a lesbian," Lopez informs the man [...]
The man, who seems a bit unsure as to what he should say, ultimately tells Lopez that he doesn't have any stones but she should come back the next day.

- "Evolutionary thinking is dangerous, and it's anti-American":
Well this is fun. This nice fellow is Michael Peroutka, the founder of the “Institute on the Constitution” and a former presidential candidate of the Constitution Party. He sure does love him some Constitution! He’s also a member of the neo-Confederate League of the South and a good old white supremacist, too. And he has some interesting thoughts about science and Americanism, too, as we see in this video from Right Wing Watch—the lecture is from 2011, but they just discovered it while doing other research, and had to share it with the world. And golly, it’s some bracing stuff! You see, kids, Mr. Peroutka has discovered that basic political philosophy of the United States, as expressed in documents by the Founding Fathers, is grounded in the obvious Science Fact that
“creation occurred about 6000 years ago. So the whole idea of evolution and that the Earth is…millions and millions of years old is absolutely antithetical to America …

- Humans can distinguish a trillion odors...at least:
It has been said for decades that humans are capable of discriminating between 10,000 different odors. The number is cited in scientific literature and appears in popular magazines. "It's the generally accepted number," says HHMI investigator Leslie Vosshall, who studies olfaction at the Rockefeller University. "Our analysis shows that the human capacity for discriminating smells is much larger than anyone anticipated."
