Colorado Café Scientifique

In the Colorado Café Scientifique, people (often science buffs) come together in a friendly pub after work and hear a free, informal, introduction to an interesting current scientific topic, led by an expert. They take a short break for refreshments, to meet new people, and chat, and then return for questions and answers and general discussion. Everyone and anyone is welcome and they meet at the Wynkoop Brewing Company starting at 6:30 PM in the large & comfortable first floor Mercantile Room. All questions and comments are welcome, as this isn’t a seminar, it’s a chance for everyone to learn, express an opinion, and drink a beer. This months meeting is on Tuesday the 27th of March (2007) and is titled: “Stem Cells: Hype or hope? Clearing away the confusion”

Cartoon Laws Of Physics

I love these Cartoon Laws of Physics
Cartoon Law IX: Everything falls faster than an anvil.
Cartoon Law X : For every vengeance there is an equal and opposite revengeance. This is the one law of animated cartoon motion that also applies to the physical world at large. For that reason, we need the relief of watching it happen to a duck instead.
Cartoon Law Amendment A: A sharp object will always propel a character upward.
