What is Mostly Harmless Science?
As you might have already guessed, Mostly Harmless Science is a blog about science.
Does this blog have a purpose?
Mostly Harmless’ mission is to bring science to the masses in as unintuitive, unpredictable, and unintelligible a manner as possible. In particular, Mostly Harmless’ eternal fascination is with the planet Earth and its many shenanigans. Shenanigans come in many forms, from those that might leave you royally puzzled at two o’clock on a Sunday afternoon to those that might, quite literally, smack you in the face at seven o’clock on a dull Tuesday evening. Some of the planet’s antics are entirely benign, while others might leave you in various degrees of lifelessness. Once every possible turn of events has been considered, deconstructed, quantified, averaged, and summarized in one way or another, the resulting label simply reads: Mostly Harmless. Coincidentally, ‘mostly harmless’ is also the entry under ‘Earth’ in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the definitive encyclopedia on such things.
Why is this happening?
I don’t know, but you should probably seek immediate medical attention.
