Teaser Tuesdays – December 7

December 7, 2010 § 8 Comments

Today’s teasers:

“& I’m licking cherry-swirl ice cream from the spoon looping my tongue around the spoon saying, ‘Grandma, hey no. Don’t cry. The world is not ever that different.'”

From page 140 of Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates

” Well, don’t get carried away. While it is technically true that the average ‘height expectancy’ of prehistoric men was about three feet, it’s a misleading sort of truth. Like overconfident declarations about the universality of marriage, poverty, and war, it’s the sort of assertion that sows confusion and results in a harvest of misleading data.”

From page 200 of Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá

We’ve got a little psychokiller and a little social science. Fun stuff I tell ya.
