The Friday 5: Raising An Eyebrow Edition

The best of the week at EcoSalon, hand-picked for your clicking pleasure.

How are you? We’ve spent the week mostly bemused by…

…the concept of Gross National Happiness (although admittedly it does sound a fun way to govern people).

…the way the House is starting to sound like a live-action roleplaying game – except, you know, with the welfare of millions of women at stake.

…how complicated diamonds can be.

…how easy it is to forget what’s in diet soda.

…all those condoms used in the Olympics. (Yes indeed).
