Or the thing we don’t have a better name for yet but hopefully is entertaining regardless.
Patrick (who puts oh so much thought into what he says about these):
“Awesome future world stuph (sic)”
Charlie (who oft needs reminding):
“Alright so my link isn’t a sciency but it helps me, a scientist, get science done, here it is. So as I’m wrapping up my PhD I’ve been writing a lot and listening to a lot of music. Two albums I’ve purchased recently that I have been playing non-stop are Broken Bells–Broken Bells and Phosphorecent—To Willie From Phossy. Broken Bells is an indie rock band featuring James Mercer of the Shins and Brian Burton aka DJ Danger Mouse. Phosphorecent is an indie-folk singer and in this album he covers Willie Nelson tracks with a poingant post-modern weariness and ennui that I just can’t get enough of. I bought them both on vinyl because they are built for the warm cozy record player and for a full listen through. For times on the go, the vinyl versions do come with free 320 kps digital downloads for your ipod. “
Ryan (I’m writing this so I won’t put anything snarky here. WIN!):
“The director of Splice claims the movie isn’t “anti-science.” He also said it’s like a reverse-Frankenstein movie. Wasn’t that the one where the monster isn’t really a monster, rather the town-folk are monsters for not accepting progress? If this is the opposite it would be anti-science right? Either way I won’t see it, at least not in theaters. I await the Paleoposse’s comments!”
Ben (Who is Canadian):
“So. No one thinks that neutrinos are massless. there’s this thing called the “solar neutrino problem” where not enough of electron neutrinos get produced by the sun, and it called into question all the nuclear-fusion-at-the-heart-of-the-sun models. But then the Sudbury neutrino observatory showed that the neutrinos were switching their flavour (sic).
so this article is overdramatic. but… how should i put it. metaphorically? after years of suspicion we have finally caught the dog EATING THE BUTTER.”
Jacob (Who works way too hard and deserves better):
“SpaceX will be attempting to launch their Falcon 9 rocket today, which is the first of many privately-built rockets that are planned to fill some of the roles of the soon-to-be-retired Space Shuttle.
