Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex

Date Mon, August 21 2017

If I was enlightened and educated by Mary Roach’s ¬†book on cadavers (see my review here), then I am absolutely enthralled with her book on the science of sex. Now, I’m not only familiar with Mary Roach because of the other book of hers that I’ve read. I first discovered her through an essay she […]

WordBrain 2

Date Fri, August 11 2017

Recently, I’ve taken to playing a few word games on my phone. The first was a sponsored ad on Facebook, but I quickly grew tired of the monotonous game play and frequent ads.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Date Thu, August 3 2017

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is only available for Nintendo’s newest console: the Switch. I’ll discuss this a bit later on. I won’t discuss the function of the system and controllers, however. They work well enough whether you play alone or with others, and I haven’t noticed any kinks with them. I’ll focus on the design […]

“Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World” by Bill Nye

Date Wed, August 2 2017

While Bill focused on convincing the reader that evolution was real, Unstoppable seems less like a debate piece. Bill does take time to discuss and explain climate change (he compares the Earth to our physical homes, which require upkeep), but the assumption is that global warming is real. Most of the arguing on Bill’s part […]

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

Date Thu, July 13 2017

Leave it to me to read a book about cadavers. Actually, I think everyone should read this book (at least, the people who might find interesting and enlightening), so I’ll read it and let you know what I liked about it. First, a little background. Mary Roach is a journalist and science educator who has […]
