Three points order, valued board of skeptics:
First up, Discover Magazine is having a contest! Shoot a video of yourself explaining String Theory in two minutes or less and you could win . . . well, nothing but bragging rights around the Erlenmeyer flasks Monday morning, but the results should be fun! I’d like to come up with something, but my grasp of the idea is tenuous enough that I doubt I could do as good a job as some of the more scientifically literate out there. If any of you are planning to submit a video, let us know!
Second, reader Dan has tipped us off to a new Darwin movie in the works! He sends us this link to CHUD.com — I poked around the old webosphere but was unable to find any corroborating evidence. The blurb names Master and Commander screenwriter John Collee (promising!) and The Core director Jon Amiel (frightening!).
Third, I nearly forgot to mention that I received my Darwinian pick-up line t-shirts! Sweeeeeeet. Also, Azinyk’s belated valentine for having the winning entry will shortly be to its destination!
