What Does Science Say About How To Be A Good Kisser?
Regular readers might be saying “What the hell is this, Cosmo Magazine?”
In all fairness, how to be a good kisser is something no one really gets instruction in.
Yet, it can be a huge part of one’s personal life and the sources we do get info from are, well, far from scientific.
Let’s tackle it.

I’ve seen a number of articles written this week by men – nice, well-intentioned, feminist men, I’m sure – about how they empathize with Elliot Rodgers.
Oh, of course they’re disgusted by his actions and of course they think he was a terrible excuse for a human being, but, well, on some level they get it. Because they know what it’s like to be a lonely dude who feels isolated and unloved. They know what it’s like to want female attention but not know how to get it. They know what it’s like to be embarrassed and ashamed at finding yourself still a virgin at the age of twenty two. So while they condemn his actions, they can’t help but somehow feel a little bit sorry for him.
I can find it in my heart to feel many things, but being sorry for Elliot Rodgers will never be one of…

八家將 (Ba Jia Jiang), or the “Eight Generals” at a festival in Tainan.
When I first started this blog in 2010, I had no idea how much it would help my photography develop.I started out as an enthusiast with a DSLR and while I’m still an enthusiast, I feel I developed my skills in real ways – of course I was in “cheat mode” living here in Taiwan, but I worked hard to learn quickly and it certainly paid off.
My wife and I have decided to move back to the US soon. When exactly is not known, but I will be changing my blog into a general photography blog in the next few weeks.

In a giant room full of loud machines
men and women sit or stand over
their labors, working together to
build what was once impossible.
It’s a dream in plastic and carbon
fiber, a wish built on a strong titanium
framework. They strive with tools
and minds to break home ties
with this Earth, just dipping toes in the
cosmic ocean no longer thrilling.
They want to swim.
The man of the hour stands there
in front of cameras and a chattering
crowd of young and old, all genders
A curtain drawn showcases the labors of
these technicians and scientists, a smooth
capsule swept off of the pages of a
science fiction novel-its landing gear
extended, impressive rockets ready for
concrete or red sand. The statement:
One more step on the path to immortality
out there among the awaiting stars.
In a tree, among the flies and…
