I keep the Short Sharp Science link in our sidebar so I can pop over periodically to see what cool new stuff is being written about in the magazine New Scientist. (I think I originally found the link at Pam's blog.) Now, I'm not a scientist - but I think even if I was, a good bit of the stuff on the Short Sharp Science blog would blow my mind.
For example, this article is especially mind-blowing. Perhaps we all live in a Matrix after all? How do the scientists who postulate these theories - much less prove them - come up with this stuff? Do they eat breakfast and drive to work like the rest of us? I mean, I do my best thinking in the shower each morning; their shower thinking is obviously much more creative and brilliant than mine. Maybe it's their shampoo???
Of course, some of the articles are much more mundane...like this one about the odds of a single man finding an appropriate girlfriend on any given evening. Appropriate for Valentine's Day, no?
By the way, happy Valentine's Day to all!
