I think everyone would be quite happy if these 'This Week in Science' posts became a weekly FJ tradition of sorts.

It wouldn't be so bad if they linked to reputable sources that proved the facts to be correct.
As it is now, it's just blindly believing in something.
And that's religion.

What do you use when you want to watch porn? Find pictures? Google. Use it.

Not everywhere on google is a reliable source.
Plus, you could quite as easily say that at the end of an essay, but it still doesn't prove anything, if you want people to believe you critically, then provide citation.

Except for the fact that nothing is cited. Yeah, let's blindly believe these 'facts' that we're told.

Wow. That sounds awfully familiar to FJ's old enemy, the banana.

You realise that these can all be found with a 30 second google search, right?

but then this just becomes useless facts - if there's sources to the 'original' material/articles, or more than just a headline, then it'd be more knowledge per se.
If I don't get a job soon (this week), I might aswell do one my self

Given the enthusiasm this idea is greeted with, if OP doesn't do it I might take a shot at it myself.

Yes please.

I'd enjoy that, mostly because it would mean a faster advancement in scientific fields, but he's gonna run out of shit to post, because such studies usually take more than a week.
User avatar #105 to #97 - retardedcalculator (01/29/2013) [-]
Yeah, but there are so many fields of science that there is bound to be something interesting in any of them.....

Advancements are happening all the time, and even if they're not particularly important they can still be fascinating. A few weeks ago I mentioned to my chemistry class that it was discovered that a particular mixture of acids would etch crystalline patterns into a sheet of copper heated to exactly 250 C. Though this isn't a very practical or major discovery, it was enough to provide us with 2 full hour's quite vivid discussion.

I agree
