Expanding Lives, a not-for-profit that works to educate and empower young women in West Africa, has just posted an indiegogo campaign to raise money for one of the Nigerien girls who has participated in our program. Our goal is to raise $1250 in 60 days to cover the tuition and fees for Aissa this upcoming year so that she can graduate from university.

Just putting it out there…
I’m sorry but I completely disagree. I don’t think my secret desire to be part of the this “sub-culture” drives me to steal Sherlock. I love the show and it seems nonsensical that people in the UK get it for free whereas as others, such as myself, due to a sadness of geography must not only wait but pay to experience it.
So, I noticed a funny thing while on the Tour de Nerdfighting. Not only was the biggest cheer of the night for the part where I stuck “Benedict Cumberbatch” into Book 8, but pretty much everyone had seen season two of Sherlock.
Don’t get me wrong, I had also seen season two (or should I…
