The Intersection

A Grand Social Experiment

Numerical models suggest that Mooney and Nisbet will be in rare form this Friday night at Science Club in DC. And Big Head Rob and Kelly Ann Collins have official party announcements (one of which includes a Weird Science poster). But will this unprecedented social union between a few science geeks and stylish bloggers like Rob, KAC, and Rock Creek Rambler lead to a Big Bash? Or will it be more like cold fusion?

Inquiring minds, with and without Ph.D.s, want to know….

    I unabashedly claim that Robert Jensen’s incisive expose, OUTSIDE THE FRAME, of Georgie Lakoff’s framing drivel at Counterpunch (Aug 14, 2006) should be more than adequate to make Mr. Nisbet cringe in shame. Framing science? My arse!

    I’m betting on Cold Fusion — a lot of heat, but very little light (and certainly no neutrons).

    You may want to bring a thermometer along with you to confirm (I’ll let you choose the type, Chris).

    Thomas Dolby’s “Blinded Me with Science,” Revenge of the Nerds, Weird Science. Aren’t you guys a couple decades behind?

    Here is a guest on video that you can invite, Richard Feynman.

    In this BBC Horizon program, he gives his ideas about doing science. As always, he makes a lot of sense.
