Not Quite Right

Or, as I like to remind people, correlation is not causation. I pride myself on my logic and reason. Perhaps, too much so. I’m relatively well read and I actually paid attention in Science, History and English classes, but I’m always surprised at how little I really know. And, think about all the things that […]

Unleash your Creativity Scientifically
