  1. Sex Life of Fruit Bats

    OooooooK.....So, I am getting mo dose of daily reading and in one of the journal I usually read (very scientific journal, btw) I found.... THIS!Now, this really made me laugh. I think I just got my nomination for IGNobel prize for this year

  2. My "other" workbench, well, almost

     Somebody took a picture of my workbench (well almost my). It look chaotic and picturesque enough and has enough of "mad scientist" feel  to be here. Two mice are recent addition after we figured that we fully qualified as a "mouse lab".
  3. Mindless quoting without analysis or context - bad

    Ok, Just got back from incredibly boring and pointless “scientific” gathering and run into the CNN material on what Dr. Watson has to say about African intelligence. The original link is here This piece is actually very good example of how media operates. The material contains 664 words of which 44 belonged to actually what was said in the subject. Needles to say that the quote on CNN was taken completely out of context and cannot possibly invoke anything but righteous ...
  4. Our new Nobel winner

    Well, guys I was not sure whether I should react to this or not but the number of comments on concerning Al Gore’s Nobel Prize convinced me that I might as well. So, as you all probably well aware by now Mr. Gore and IPCC shared Nobel Peace prize, the fact that immediately stirred discussion about Gore’s contribution as well as what exactly he is contributing to. There are two, possibly more, sides to the discussion. Some people tend to attack underlying science ...
  5. Electroejaculation is difficult to perform in the rhinoceros

    Well, I know, I know in a true blog you are not supposed to make more then one entry per day per person, but I just couldn't help it. My "Silly side of science" wall just got a new addition. This piece here is dedicated to vet. doctors engaged in new extreme sport (see subj)  So, every time you face seemingly intractable problem please remember, it could be much worse, almost as dificult as performing Electroejaculation in the rhinoceros

  8. Scientists ask Congress to fund $50 billion science thing

    I haven't been updating the humrous science part of my blog for some time and things accumulated. Now here is one to start it of Scientists ask congress to fund $50 billion science thing I am sure EvilDave would love it
  9. domestic animals and progress of modern science

    Time to continue my pseudo-scientific pseudo-humor category. Scientists are (usually) very polite people. So, it is not uncommon to find in the end of most scientific papers the section with acknowledgements. In this section people: 1)      Express their deepest and most profound gratitude to funding agencies that so graciously dispensed money (so we can satisfy our curiosity for their expense) 2)      Praise esteemed colleagues who provided ...
