Margaret McCartney's favorite science joke of 2008 (mine too)


In her final Financial Times blog post of 2008, the Glasgow-based GP and Financial Times columnist wrote:

    My favourite science joke of 2008 (courtesy of my eldest son)

    One atom says to the other atom: I think I’ve lost an electron.

    Other atom: Are you sure?

    First atom: I’m positive.


You could do worse than stay up with Dr. McCartney's observations, if only for their refreshingly tart dismissals of so much that's proffered as "truth" when it comes to the art — and it remains far more an art than a science in the year 2009, trust me on this — of medicine.

More — much, much more — about electrons and the graphic that leads this post right here.
