Greetings and salutations…

So, I swear I am totally writing a real first post, and it will be published soon, but I figured now would be a great time to post about what kinds of things I want to post about. As I said in my profile description, I’m nerdy, and I love science, and in particular, eviscerating bullshit with the cunning use of critical thinking and science. I’m also kind of a smart ass. So, what I’m looking for are opportunities to help increase the level of real critical thinking on the internet and maybe have a bit of fun doing it. Here are some ideas:

  • Have you found some too-good-to-be-true claim? Send it to me, I’ll do a bit of digging and let you know what I find out.
  • Does something look tantalizingly like science, but has the whiff of bullshit to it? Send it to me.
  • Do you have an obnoxious friend or relative who beats you over the head with bad science and reason trying to support an odious belief? Let me at em.
  • Need relationship advice? I’ve always thought it would be hilarious to write an advice column based on things I learned studying Physical Anthropology and Primatology. Ask away!

This is not meant to be a complete list, just a few ideas I had, so if you think of anything else up my nerd alley, let me know! Let’s have fun, and maybe learn a few things at the same time.

    What is your take on Starlite? Fact or Science fiction pipe dream? Everyone knows Graphene is the 21st century’s wonder material, but this stuff makes it look like a sissy…

    Thanks for the comment! I will take a look at this, and hopefully it will be installment two of Nerdly Glee :)
