Like Ghost Stories? 

My girlfriend recently started a new blog called "Haunted Me Blog." She's had a full and interesting life which includes several events she can't explain. Being the skeptic I have always been (by nature,) I tend to chalk the stories off to lucid dreaming, creaking/settling foundations, shadows, over-active imaginings, the usual. But she has a knack for telling the stories in an entertaining and suspenseful way that a lot of people seem to enjoy.

So if you are a fan of the spooky and weird; if you enjoy those new ghost-hunting shows; or even if you like the challenge of trying to explain away what others just assume are the super-natural, give it a read. You just might enjoy it.

#50 Race and IQ 

These are my thoughts on why race is a concept that has no actual meaning and why any correlations to IQ are spurious.
