Ah, Science!

I saw a link to this blog from the latest installment of Carnival of the Vanities. It's a general list of links to blogs with interesting things to say. Don't ask me why mine isn't on there... I have no idea why. Anyway, the story that got Five Points on the map (so to speak) is here. I swear, this is how I view a lot of what scentists do. "Right now, we're hoping to publish a paper on the migration pattern of flies!" Absolutely no practical application, but compellingly interesting.

If it wasn't for people with such morbid curiosity such as myself, scientists would have been hanged as heretics long ago. Instead, they're given large government grants. Oh well. Maybe it would be cool to see a meteor explode... I've never seen that.
