Nerd Alert! Nerd Alert! If you're not into temporal mechanics or Eschatology you will likely find this boring but I just had to get this off my chest.

Random Sciency Christmas Stuff
"Ah, there's nothing more exciting than science. You get all the fun of sitting still, being quiet, writing down numbers, paying attention.

A Day Off At The ROM
It's been about a month in the making but I managed to get a day off (unfortunately Julie had to work) and I wanted to do something that was completely not work, so off to the Royal Ontario Museum.

That Everyone May Know His Works
The biggest thing we did over March Break was go to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) in Toronto. It turns out that when you have four kids a family pass for the whole year is only $35 more. We can go back any time and both Julie and I can bring an adult guest free. … Continue reading That Everyone May Know His Works
Wordless Wednesday: Mapping Human Disease

A Picture Worth Ten-Thousand Words
With a very polished press conference this week (complete with media alerts the day before) TV writer and producer Simcha Jacobovici announced a stunning revelation: Jesus' Family Tomb has been found! He claims that in it are stone caskets inscribed with the names: Jesus son of Joseph, and his wife, Mariamne as well as their … Continue reading A Picture Worth Ten-Thousand Words
