Didactic Mind, Ep 57: The Rods and the Ax

This week’s podcast episode touches on many subjects, ranging from Robert A. Heinlein’s controversial classic military sci-fi novel, STARSHIP TROOPERS, to the Beer Bug, to the nature of rights and responsibilities. I discuss a lot of different points...

And the science dunce cap goes to…

The Male Brain sent over this link a few days ago, and it’s just too good not to turn into a full post. It’s all about how scientists can reach two completely different results from the exact same data set: In a test of scientific reproducibility, multiple...

HALO needs a major revamp

Seeing as how HALO Infinite is slated for release in 2020, a full five years after HALO 5: Guardians was released – which is by far the biggest gap between flagship HALO games in the franchise – here is an interesting perspective on the ways in...
