Better Late Than Never

Well, in my defense I wasn't late in completing the task...just late in blogging about it. So. If you remember back to my 2009 goal list, I said I wanted to read one magazine a month. One that I would normally never pick up. It was between some Consumer Report thinga-ma-bob and this Scientific American Mind...and the Science mag won.

It turned out to be pretty darn interesting actually. To sum it up I learned that:

I can blame biology for my procrastination

Prostitution is legal and regulated in Germany, Greece, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Turkey

There are actually studies going on to determine whether or not computers have feelings...for example do they get upset when we throw them out. (come on, really?)

Children who have chronic ear-aches are more likely to become obese as an adult

Birth control pills affect women's taste in men

Who'd a thunk it?!

Oh, and we have a chronic ear infection kid here too (even after he had tubes, still has infections)

I have to say, consumer reports is a good read...I really enjoy it...can't wait to see what you choose for Feb!
