Here’s a generally great article on scientific stuff that does not (yet) make sense. I tend to agree with those commenters suggesting that the Belfast homeopathy results do not belong, and I’d think no one with a scrap of sense would care that much about the Wow signal.

Also, maybe we can stop worrying about the oil (especially given the semi-recent price drop; suspicious, wasn’t it)… maybe we’ll run out of technological materials first. So Americans have high phosphorous use? Is that mostly as a component of fertilizer? Hmm… wiki says “The most important commercial use of phosphorus-based chemicals is the production of fertilizers. Phosphorus compounds are also widely used in explosives, nerve agents, friction matches, fireworks, pesticides, toothpaste and detergents.” I don’t think I’m using most of those regularly… particularly since I use “green” detergents and toothpastes. Weird.

Maybe I should change my nickname to “now off the warpath about two spaces after sentence-ending punctuation and trying to unlearn that damn habit”.
Did you know that the aim of the Nordic Network in Meat Science (NNMS) is to promote the exchange of ideas and expertise between meat science workers in the five Nordic nations at all levels of their careers? Here’s their logo:
These are PhD in Meat Science students. They will be Doctors of Meat Science! Bwah-hah-hah-hah!
