The science of Godzilla (teaser)

Sorry: this is one of those annoying teaser posts that lots of people hate me for, but I wanted to post it in order to advertise what’s coming next (I’d post it now if I could but I don’t have the time). And I promise that the article is, within the context of this blog’s theme, going to be relevant. Please check back soon. The vampire bats can wait a bit longer. And to those of you that know Godzilla, you’ll know that he’s done an awful lot of evolution within recent years (and I’m not talking about the 1998 TriStar Godzilla).

    For everyone who can’t wait for Darren’s scholarly take on the Big Guy, may I recommend the classic site Barry’s Temple of Godzilla? It’s worth it just for the disclaimer, which notably states:

    And no, I am NOT a Gamera fan. Godzilla is a giant mutated dinosaur, whereas Gamera is just a big turtle who flies by spinning around like a top and spewing flames from his arm and leg holes. Godzilla is a fearsome, awe-inspiring and majestic creature who can destroy an entire city all by himself; Gamera, on the other hand, is “the friend of children everywhere”

    Glad we got that sorted out.

    Hey, but then, so is Stalin.

    Nuts to that! Teaser posts, tantalizing lists of upcoming topics, and frequent digressions aren’t problems. They’re features.

    Rock on, Dr. Naish. Rock on.
