Oh yeah I know I know. There’s no geologists out there (... except for some loons, maybe) who are saying that humans should burn all the fossil fuels we can to make an ice-free Antarctica happen ASAP. But scientists are just looking for any silver lining they can to a bad situation which (despite ~40 years or so of… Read more
Many of you, if you look at the arms of your parents or grandparents will note a small patch of skin that looks sort of like an orange peel.

ORs aren’t that loud. The best comparison I have is to how loud the dentist’s exam room is. Sure it gets louder when a drill is running for a minute or two, and there’s the occasional sound of suction, but all in all it’s actually pretty quiet.
I took a class from Dr. Sancar, which was taught by three different teachers, and he called it The Ramp of Pain, because each one was more difficult than the last. Guess who was our last professor? Most of it wasn’t his fault... there’s only so exciting one can make a MAP Kinase Kinase Kinase (natures most racist… Read more
