“This is a crisis situation. Time to save the day, with science!” – Sarge, Red vs. Blue

This is a blog. It is written by a person. I am that person.

This blog will deal with science-ish stuff. By that I mean I will pontificate broadly about science and related issues (such as skepticism/scepticism).  I work in the biological sciences so there will undoubtedly be a bias in this direction. Let’s just see what happens, hey.

P.S. Many thanks to my good friend, Jen,  known in the web-world as JenJenRobot, for the design of the sciencey evolution banner thing at the top of this blog.

P.P.S. With very few exceptions, most of the images I post have been yanked from Google Images. Please don’t sue me.
