Look! A theme song for the Science Lounge!


ego forceps ergo ego forceps


****
"Chives?"�
"Yes, m'lud?"�
"Is that Ms Ephemera hovering over the croquet lawn?"�
"Indeed m'lud. She's marshalled all the haggle-dans. Missy-twigs and vale-nymphs from Claypole Woods. Apparently she intends to tear this house down and dance on the ruins."�
"Well, Chives, you'd better start the car, what? And pack my tennis things too"�

And awesome. And I'm sure creationists are going to promote this as an example of intelligent design. Because making a creature that has to eat algae in order to photosynthesize, rather than one that can generate its own chloroplasts as a "finished" organism should, is clearly the work of a designer.

I read that about the swan divorce. How sad.

Update on my own science, as of today I have a quorum! I am in contact with ten potential participants, which means once their informed consent forms are returned, I can begin collecting data.

Sounds like a good way to keep the paint on my car looking purdy!

I have read about new clear coat paints being developed that can 'heal' from small scratches and such. I wonder if this is similar stuff.

Any chart making comparisons between species that doesn't include the Blue Whale is automatically invalid.

For clarification, I believe Smaug intends this link.

The current top entry is about Simon Singh who, while a bit shorter than the male average, isn't exactly "teeny tiny."
