Two random links

We are the 95%: "There's one big lie that rapists tell....The one big lie at the center of all these little lies is: "If you were in my place, you could have done the same."... Here's the truth, though, from some pretty major studies: Between 6% and 13% of men have attempted or completed rape. 4-8% of men are serial offenders, and responsible for the vast majority (90-95%) of all rapes. I realize these numbers are still uncomfortably high, especially if you have twenty male friends. But they also mean that 94-87% of men are not rapists. Add in women (who do rape, but at a lower rate), put in some fuzzy math and broad guesses to get a good-enough ballpark, and roughly 95% of people never attempt or commit rape."

My Little Republic: Plato is Magic: "However, My Little Pony is not simply the story of talking, pastel-colored equines living in a place called “Ponyville”; it is also the most detailed allegory of Plato’s Republic ever written. Everything from Plato’s ideas on utopian society and government structure to his Platonic Forms has representation in MLP’s Equestria."

These are both brilliant posts for totally different reasons. Go read!
