In the little spiel that I have “About Me” on the sidebar, I mention that I am a scientist. Now some of you career skeptics have in the past questioned my scientific credentials. How shocking! But at any rate, I have had to dazzle readers from time to time with my scientific knowledge just so as to dispel these awful allegations. I assure you that I am a scientist; an absent-minded mad scientist in fact!
However, I realise that it has been sometime since my last scientific post. So here it is. I present to you the newly discovered element as reported on the internet………
Ah! The Element of Surprise is evidence that science can be a funny old thing and that most scientific discoveries involve the element of surprise.
As Isaac Asimov once quipped, “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “Eureka” but “That’s funny…””.
