Thank you all so much for the attention! I hope I will reward that attention with quality posts and commentary. As a celebration of this 200 followers I promise I will put in a big effort to start making videos. These will be vlog style, focusing on science and my life through a scientific lens. I’ve wanted to get into videos for a while now, and I’m hopeful that this plan will work out!
I’m happy to announce that I’m soon to be the proud owner of that glow-in-the-dark space t-shirt. Unfortunately, unlike the universe itself, the USPS does not deliver astronomical goodies at the speed of light. When I wear it, I’m gonna stand just like that, too … cool, thoughtful, spacey.
It’s from Portland’s Make It Good, who offer several other pieces of glowing garb in their Etsy store. It’s like wearing the ceiling of your childhood bedroom!
(I know I follow someone who linked to this shop recently, but I didn’t bookmark it, so thank you, whoever you are … my wardrobe is the better for it)

Adam Savage’s SXSW 2014 Keynote: Art and Science
Adam Savage talks about the importance of the relationship between art and science for his keynote at this year’s SXSW Interactive Conference. What can scientists learn from artists (and vice versa)? How can technologists be better storytellers? Adam discusses these topics and more and then sits down for a Q&A with Tested.com
Can you control your metabolism with your mind?
Turns out … yes.
Food as placebo! Does labeling something “low fat” or “healthy” trick our brains in the wrong direction? Feed your mind with this great vid from NPR Science.
Previously: Learn more about the weirdness of placebos, from medicine color to pill size, with this video.
Interesting, but slightly annoying that the “fat hypothesis” is used here. Turns out there’s not even a strong correlation to eating fat and getting fat, and I don’t have to tell you scientists that a correlation is very weak on its own.
