Biohackers Meetup in Chiang Mai

(Jan 25, 2003) I've always been a biohacker before I even knew the word. I think biohacking is a state of thinking.

Who Missed Sunday School? sliceoflife

Who Missed Sunday School?

(July 30, 1970) I dreaded Mondays. As a 5th grader, the religion teacher would ask the class who went to church last Sunday. Like every other Monday, I would be the odd guy out coz my parents were not church goers. I would brace myself for the usual humiliating punishment. This went on every Monday for two fucking years!....more »»
