NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

OK, geeks and science nerds – and everybody else.

I just learned of a new blog that may interest you. It’s Out of Context Science, described as a site “in which science articles are badly quoted in ways that are interesting but otherwise completely meaningless.”

For example:

“She recruited 40 volunteers and showed them an unpleasant 12-minute film including graphic scenes of human surgery…Thirty minutes later, half of the group played Tetris for ten minutes.”

or

“We postulated that there had to be an ‘eat me’ signal that the cancer cells were also carrying…”

or

“New genes are no longer just vinegar, they are now equally likely to be butter and bread. We were shocked.”

No one should be shocked by the scientific method. Enjoy your visit to the world of Out of Context Science.
