I learned a lot from this Daily Show video where Aasif Mandvi tries to figure out what science is really up to. I learned that Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour is some kind of reverse zombie who can't stand to be around brains. I learned that Stephen Colbert's on-air persona is not as much of a caricature as I'd hoped. I learned that my husband is doing physics all wrong, because we haven't seen any "finantual" gains yet. Then I had to stop learning stuff because I was scared science would come and get me.
