This Week in Lady Reads

Views you can use, science, and April Fool’s jokes done right. Fun stuff!

Ijeoma Olua on why we’re really upset at Trevor Noah’s past problematic tweets.

I love YA lit, but I also kinda love the gentle mocking it got from #VeryRealisticYA.

Why you should poop at work.

A new science-themed Cards Against Humanity expansion pack has raised a shitton of money that will go to scholarships from women in STEM.

How scientists are using tampons to find water pollution. (It’s not gross, I promise!)

Yes, it’s OK not to be with your kids 24/7. They’ll be fine.

A coyote was hanging out on the roof of a bar in Queens. Not an April Fool’s joke. (Suck it, Brooklyn.)

Now for some actual April Fool’s Jokes!

Lastly, ouch.

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.
