Just thought I’d link to this very funny post on Cosmic Variance. She’s talking about discussions about science with kindergarten kids, and how their minds are time-shared between the rational and the not-so-much. Priceless quotes from the latter slice…could have came straight from the mouth of Jake the Snake!

I’m always excited to hear news from my old haunt Fermilab. The latest is a terrific new result on neutrinos from the MiniBooNE experiment. There’s a terrific explanation on Cosmic Variance by Heather Ray. The new results move us closer to ruling out neutrino oscillation as the cause of the very strange results from LSND, a prior neutrino experiment which appeared to poke holes in the standard model.
