    I refuse to believe this. Everyone knows The Wrong Trousers was based on a true story.

    I know almost nothing about human biology, based purely on lack of interest, but I'm in geekdom-love with animal biology. I especially love vintage biology books with their beautiful slide illustrations.

    I'm so pleased that DD has inherited it. She loves nothing more than learning about animals, and she's so useful on hunts and helping out with animal births. Scientists will know what I'm talking about here; she gets that intense, maniacal concentration, no matter how gross the subject matter is.

    If she finds a dead bird she usually goes "Oh no, poor bird! Poor poor birdie!....I wonder if it still has a heart...." and pokes through it with a stick.

    She wants to be a vet.

    What a great thread! I have a degree in Molecular Biology and have just started a degree in computer science. Unfortunately I haven't had a lot of time to indulge in much scientific reading for fun as my time is full with the boys and trying to remember maths I did over 10 years ago in high school but there is definitely some things here I'm going to look into further.

    ok i may have the wrong end of the stick here but discoveries are discoveries, peer reviews are there for research based papers to check their credibility.

    Not sure what your post referencing peer reviews was about but no peer reviews are required if something is discovered.

    So once they discover something it is not held up for testing? Are experiments not retested all the time to make sure they are correct? Is this not part of the review process?

    Default Let's talk science!

    Hi BH science lovers. I need a new book - any recommendations? Anything science related, but no Dawkins please, as chances are I've already read it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I just finished reading 'Don't Sleep, There Are Snakes' which is about a missionary's time spent with an isolated Amazonian tribe and how they challenged (and changed) his perceptions of faith, linguistics, and happiness. Terrific stuff.

    I really like Bad Science by Ben Goldacre.

    His website is good too - www.badscience.net
