Five issues, insights and observations shaping our perspective. Sponsored by "Krakatoa" on Discovery Channel.

  • The Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiment
    These dudes can make a science experiment explode to music. As one character said in Harold & Kumar: On a scale from one to 10, one being not so extreme and 10 being extremely extreme, I give this a 9.5! (via Aetiology)
  • Rant on Technology
    Palazzo gets to the core of what technology is and sneaks in a key argument for basic research.
  • The Demon Fish of South Atlanta
    These fish undercut everything we know about physics, order and nature. They must be destroyed.
  • Ann Coulter fills me with anticipation
    We personally have never engaged in bestiality only because we always assumed it violated Boyle’s law. Now that PZ has cleared things up for us, fear our wanton immorality!
  • What a gas!
    We always suspected there was some cognitive deficiency in New Jersey, but it takes the penetrating journalism of the Daily Show to pinpoint it precisely.
