I want a 3D Scanner

We’ve all been there. The doorbell rings, the neighbours are invited in – and you suddenly realise your child’s designs for a freeze ray gun are currently displayed, front and centre of the kitchen. Awk-ward. Of course, in our evil lair, the freeze ray gun design is at least a […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #8

At first I thought that Daddown Under was a sweet guy, not worthy of my ‘Evil Genius’ attention. But over the last few weeks, his posts have been showing some potential shining through. His evil is a bit more subtle – not realising how evil he is until after you […]

Forensic Friday #2 – Slime

“I’ve been slimed!!” Today’s Forensic Friday experiment is brought to you by the letter S – for SLIME. Ooey, gooey, slime. Of course Sinister and Nefarious want to make their own slime. And it is a good lesson in chemical reactions (as is any cooking in the house)… My concern […]

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 […]

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. Reservoir Dad is a pretty established blogger, with an excellent library of Evil Genius Parenting Examples. It helps that he is a dad […]

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 […]
