The myth of menstrual synchrony

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:31:37 +0000

It has been known for many years that the menstrual cycles of women who live together do not come into synchrony. It’s merely an artefact of random fluctuations and differences in cycle length that give the appearance of some kind of synchrony when co-habiting women find that they seem to be having their period at … Continue reading "The myth of menstrual synchrony"

Trypophobia is holey and scary

Tue, 10 May 2016 10:36:57 +0000

Trypophobia is the name for the phobia (intense and apparently irrational fear) of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps. It’s weird…why should anyone be scared of holes or bumps? Well food full of holes might be rotten, whereas bumps might be present on food or skin because of disease. But, as with lots … Continue reading "Trypophobia is holey and scary"

Sticks and stones

Mon, 09 May 2016 14:11:56 +0000

They used to say sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me… …so what’s all that pen is mightier than the sword stuff about, then?

The distant future

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:48:46 +0000

There will come a time again, when we eat our food without photographing it before, during and after. There will come a time again, when we enjoy the moment without telling any number of people who are not there about it via a social networking update. There will come a time again, when we can visit a natural … Continue reading "The distant future"

Parental rules

Wed, 04 May 2016 15:17:51 +0000

I reckon parents set rules for their children not so that they can keep control of them (although safety and damage limitation are perhaps additional benefits) but the real reason for boundaries is so that their offspring have the opportunity to figure out ways to sneak past the guards, so to speak, and to figure … Continue reading "Parental rules"

You pay how much for gas?

Where do you drive and how much do you pay for gas? Petrol or diesel?

Fear and loving in the vagus

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 08:37:27 +0000

The vagus nerve controls your heart and digestive tract…it’s the one that gives you palpitations and butterflies in the stomach. It gets you hot under the collar, makes you dry of throat, short of breath and gives you the urge to gag. All symptoms of fear, the classic fight or flight response, but eerily the … Continue reading "Fear and loving in the vagus"

Shoot for the Moon

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 07:20:48 +0000

Minister and author Norman Vincent Peale (1898–1993) said we should “shoot for the Moon” because even if we miss, we’ll land among the stars.* What utter nonsense! We are, here on Earth, already “among the stars” in some sense, given our planet’s location within the Milky Way galaxy. However, the disparity between the distance to … Continue reading "Shoot for the Moon"

Songs, Snaps, Science

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 08:55:28 +0000

You may have noticed…or maybe you didn’t…that the SciScoop news stream slowed down quite a bit, while I put the site on the backburner in favour of the other two strands of my interests – Songs, Snaps & Science. You can listen to some of my songs on BandCamp and preview others on SoundCloud. My Snaps … Continue reading "Songs, Snaps, Science"
