So, how much free will do we have?

Here’s an email I sent to some of my friends based on an piece I heard on The Naked Scientist: This group did a study and found that women who were lap dancers and not on the pill (ie they had a normal menstrual cycle) go more tips on their fertile days.  (I can’t imagine …

How Far is infinity?

Although it may seem like a philosophical or silly question, it is indeed a practical question for me. You see, we have a tradition at Christmas-time in my family where we play dominoes on the days before Christmas and whoever wins gets to open a gift.

How My Parents are Saving the World

I really respect and admire my parents for what they are doing now. At a time when they should be relaxing after 24 years of parenting, they have taken on 3 foster kids – 2 of them at the last minute last week. It’s not as though my parents are trying to replace the void …
