Darwin Christmas, and Finding Control Groups

Posted by tigerhawkvok on December 06, 2009 19:18 in evolution , biology , misc science

I find this incredibly entertaining:

Darwin Christmas

"Darwin Christmas". Hotlinked since it lives on Imageshack.

Arguably the greatest problem with it is that we're programmed from a young age to think of left-to-right as increasing on a given axis, though obviously this is meant to be read from right-to-left.

In other news, this "weird science" post from Ars Technica comes with this entertaining gem:

This is little more than a press release on some research in progress. Still, even before the results are in, the process of setting up the experiment turned out to be rather informative. The study, you see, is on porn consumption, and it looks like the researchers will be stuck working without anybody to act as a negative control. "We started our research seeking men in their twenties who had never consumed pornography," said Simon Louis Lajeunesse. "We couldn't find any."

Time to stop procrastinating and start properly bolting out those grad school applications.
