Book Review: The Signal and The Noise, by Nate Silver (February '21)

Why do so many predictions fail, but some don't? Nate Silver asks us that question on the front cover of his book. Fortunately for us, he ingeniously uses the content inside this book to answer his question, inasmuch as it can be answered. This is just a taste of the kinds of insightful analysis you can expect in my book review. Not to mention the liberal sprinking of honors-english vocabulary like 'inasmuch'.

Book Review: The Trouble With Physics, by Lee Smolin (January '21)

Continuing my new hobby during quarantine of actually picking up and reading a book, I've read and reviewed Lee Smolin's history and psychiatric evaluation of String Theory, and what this wildy successful theory has done to the rest of the physics community. So what is the "Trouble With Physics"? Read my review to find out!

Book Review: The Fabric of Reality, by David Deutsch (December '20)

What better to do during covid quarantine than pick up the most intimidating book on your bookshelf and write a book review of it? Well, arguably I should also be doing some situps. Turns out, my at-home desk chair was better suited to holding laundry than supporting my doughy core muscles. Try to put that image out of your head, and enjoy my review of David Deutsch's Interdisciplinary Theory of Everything!

The Weirdest Scientific Papers Ever Published (Updated Feb '20)

Well, it's only been a couple years since my last post -- I was taking a really really long nap. As part of my tour of the weirdest areas of science to write articles for TimeBlimp, I come across some really strange research papers. While 99% of scientific publications have extremely dry, unappealing titles, the weird 1% make it all worthwhile. Here I’ll collect the best of the best (and incidentally, recycle some material that I had to read anyway into a brand new article. Efficiency!)
