Science Made Stupid Again

I stumbled across a funny site called “Science Made Stupid” and started writing a post about it…

Introduction

Since the dawn of time, man has looked to the heavens and wondered: where did the stars come from? He has looked at the great diversity of plants and animals around him and wondered: where did life come from? He has looked at himself and wondered: where did I come from?

Later, he began to ask more complicated questions. He looked in his wallet and asked: where did my paycheck go? Am I on the right bus? Who do you like in the series?

To the former questions, at least, science has provided answers.

… and then it started to look familiar. Too familiar. Turns out I thought it was funny in June 2004, too.

My memory may be failing, but at least my humor is consistent.
