The Last Word


12 – 16 November

This week, our site went boom. But we’re all better now.

Cassie explored the compelling pseudscience behind chronic Lyme’s disease, and why it can sway even people who should know better.

Ann considered gravity’s uncompromising brutality.

Heather’s chilling story about how Fritz Haber changed her grandfather’s life is a reminder of how casually any of us can be sideswiped by scientific glory.

Ann reminds Abstruse Goose that we have been programmed by eons of evolution to know that “a skittery thing with too many legs is just deeply wrong.”

And Ginny’s heart-melting new puppy got her interested in the astounding engineering feat that is a dog’s nose.

See you back here on Monday!
