13 Mysteries

These are mysterious scientific things. It's a list. They are interesting to ponder.

I like science things very much. I was never much good at any of it in school - I made my lab partner dissect the pig lungs and the rat that was all yellowed from sitting in a bucket of formaldehyde - but I was endlessly curious about most of it. To this day, I am quite astute at screeching out "what is a double helix?" or "what is the uvula?" at Jeopardy as we watch. For anyone who cares, the uvula is that little bit that hangs at the back of your throat. The Poor Sod said "I though it was called a little punching bag." Which makes me the science genius around here.


Anyway, 13 things to think about, from Timesonline. Some of them are so big they make my head explode, but some are manageable.

The real mystery is why you had two very long posts about Coronation Street.

That would explain the gap this past week... a trip to Costco and maxing out a credit card on the Corontation Street box set... all 6,000 plus episodes -- back to back.

1. Shut up, Jeff.

2. I don't go to Costco.

3. I've felt like crap most of the week, and the only posts I could string together were goofy Corn Street ones. For a change of pace. At least I didn't do another rant on Thursday, which, trust me, wouldn't have been tough.

Only now you've all piled on, I might just go do a rant after all...oh, and for the record? Tons of people watch Coronation Street. But nobody admits it.
