The weekend!

This weekend, I’ll be running around a muddy field in Cardiff, chasing a plastic disc. Happy days. Next proper post is on Monday. Until then, you might want to read about…

Hedgehogs and Foxes holding Erlenmeyer flasks What type of scientist is a career chemist?

Just in: yellowstone is big(ger) How big is the supervolcano at Yellowstone?

    Hi Chris,

    this is just to inform you that last weekend I finally purchased my copy of Ben Goldacre’s “Bad Science”. After you praised it in your last answer to me, I’ll consider you personally responsible if I don’t like it!


    P.S.: Just kidding, I actually already wanted to buy it, having read a few good reviews, but only found it a couple of days ago…

    Lorenzo! Apologies for the late reply.

    I await your judgement of ‘Bad science’ with interest :P. I’ve not actually read the book, just been a long follower of his column but I hear the book is good!
