Own two of a certain object in the home will almost guarantee your kids will do well in school. Can you guess what it is?

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

  • Interesting. My great grandparents used to buy books for my brother and I at an early age. I was fascinated with Jacques Cousteau and the creatures of the seas. Detective novels like the Hardy Boys really got my young mind thinking as well. I believe my grandparents cultivated the idea of reading with their grandchildren. By the time of high school, I credit this interest with my success acedemically, as opposed to failure. That’s a cool article.
