the great american mix tape

Thoughts:
1. Hmm. First name is the surname, or what Americans call the “last name,” a family name. Last name in sequence is a personal name. A clan of one man. Can’t believe we haven’t talked about this before.
2. 武当派 Wu Tang Sect/Clan (fictional) named after the  武当山 Wu Dang Mountains (real)Quoth Wikipedia: home to a famous complex of Taoist temples and monasteries which are especially associated with the god Zhenwu. As a counterpart to the buddhist Shaolin Monastery, Wudang is renowned for the practice of Chinese martial arts.
3. Clan and its practices first invented by Chinese “wuxia” (martial arts and chivalry) novelist Louis Cha Leung-yung, alias Jin Yong. Though all are based in actual martial arts, some of the more awesome fictional styles created by Cha are:
Silky Palm (綿掌)
Tiger Claw Ending Hand (虎爪絕戶手)
Cloud-Ascending Ladder (梯雲縱)
Heaven Relying Dragon Slaying Skill (倚天屠龍功)
Mystical Saber Style (玄虛刀法)
Heaven and Earth as One (天地同壽)
Soft Snow Swordplay (柔雲劍法)
No direct mention of "Tiger Style" on Wikipedia page, perhaps because it is actually a real style of Gung Fu.
Conclusion: the image is still humorous.

Today’s Junior Scientist Power Hour is all about ladies and their weird periods! What are periods? We don’t really know. But you can always tell when a woman is on her period because she has opinions that men don’t like, and sometimes they get mad!

It’s not like women get mad any other times, or that even if a woman is on her period, you should still listen to the words she says and not write them off as “crazy uterus talk”
