DailyDirt: Everyday Scientific Mysteries

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are all kinds of scientific complexities around us. Just try to seriously answer all the questions that a curious five-year-old can come up with, and you'll get a feeling for how little we actually know about the world around us. Thankfully, we have some modern scientific equipment to help sort out these minor mysteries. Here are just a few answers for some common phenomena. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    I don't they did de-boarding simulations... since there usually isn't a set procedure for getting off the plane. (But there could likely be a more optimal one than the current chaos of having everyone trying to get their luggage out of the overhead bins at the same time.)
