I haven't finished reading it yet, but it's rather a good article about how science self-corrects.

No, science isn't broken... some people just find it unbearable to have their conceits (among other things!) deflated Dodgy

Anyway...

... a nice little video about HeLa (the book about Henrietta Lacks is really worth it... unfortunately, I just learnt it's being turned into a movie... by none other than Oprah... and she will also be starring in it [Image: bad.gif])





And another TED-Ed video ('cause I'd often wondered why you feel the spiciness of peppers and mustard differently. Spoiler: "The difference lies in the types of compounds involved. The capsaicin and piperine, found in black pepper and chili peppers, are made up of larger, heavier molecules called alkylamides. And those mostly stay in your mouth. Mustard, horseradish, and wasabi are made up of smaller molecules called isothiocyanates, that easily float up into your sinuses. This is why chili peppers burn your mouth, and wasabi burns your nose."





And this is just funny. Sometimes cold comfort is exactly what we need Rolleyes

Heh it'll all be 0 Kelvin in the end... that's funny!
