The right sort of answer

Far, far, far too many people hate when they don’t get a direct and simple answer. Sometimes that’s what we actually want. Other times, it’s an effective tool. In fact, it’s the number one tool in politics: make it simple and repeat it over and over and it’s true. The more direct and more simple, the closer to the truth for more people. And, of course, I hate that. Want a real answer? I mean, a real, real answer? Check out this Feynman video.

Yet another Symphony of Science

This one includes some familiar and some new ‘singers’ (including someone without a penis for the first time in the series): Michael Shermer, Jacob Bronowski, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins, Jill Tarter, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Feynman, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, Carolyn Porco, and PZ Myers.

(Whoops. As a commenter pointed out, Jane Goodall was in the last one. But this one has two women, so, uh, there.)
