One Poison Dart Frog at a Time

This is the point where I cannot believe in the nonsense of Intelligent Design. Seriously – what super-natural drugs are out there for some all-high deity to think HOT PINK with blue legs is a great colour for a frog?!? Now don’t get me wrong. I understand that not ALL […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #7 – Hallowe’en

Hallowe’en. Sure, most of us think that it is just an opportunity for Cadbury’s and Allens to make a mint *grin*. It is supposed to be a festival. Lots of ghouls, science experiments gone wrong, that sort of thing. With Halloween, there’s not much opportunity to really practice your evil genius. Most of the […]

Forensic Friday #1 – Snappy Ruler

Fridays are now “Forensic Fridays” – or “How to Avoid Forensics through your Knowledge of Science – Fridays”. Batman would be proud. Big thanks to EG Opa for buying Sinister the “365 Science Experiments Book” … and a contribution towards the Home and Contents Insurance. We’re starting off small. Don’t […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #5

It takes a special skill to include your neighbours in your … activities. This week’s recipient has not only done that, but he has established a convincing defence.

One Educated Girl at a Time

I came across this article today (good work Checklist Mommy) and it has been gnawing at me all day. I also checked out the NY Times piece on the same event. This whole event pisses me off. Short summary – Malala Yousafzai is a 14 year old girl in Pakistan. Even […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #4

Of course, school holidays provide a plethora of opportunities to express your Evil Genius. But no matter […]

Costumes to take Candy from a Granny

October is pretty much known as “dress-up-and-eat-lots-of-sugar” month. Sure, it’s supposed to be on one day – 31st October. But the other 30 days are for building up your tolerance. And strategising new ways of stealing from the kids. Of course, October then becomes “pin-this-picture-of-my-kids-cool-costume” month, and even “look-at-my-cool-costume-that-I-have-worked-on-for-the-last-six-months” month. […]

Evil Genius Tool #2 – Spinning Teacup

I swear – they were looking at me, like my kids were those kids. The kids at the park, trashing the place with over-the-top sugar-laced-with-red-colouring behaviour. Seriously – if you think my kids are those kids, then you have no idea what those kids are like. I so want to watch you in […]
