On the science blogs today (even a bit of history)

John Hawks finds an article about 4000 year old noodles and continues to discuss the hobbit. Was the hobbit just a microcephalic human?

I particularly enjoyed Razib's question: "What kind of adult spends 70-80 hours breeding flies, running simulations and deriving proofs rather than spending time with their families, watching sports or going to church?" Every researcher can replay that sentence by replacing the science words with those appropriate to their own disciplines. The question popped up in a long and interesting discussion about science. I found it easier to understand than Foucault but I still can't summarise it.

Kerim brings news of the expulsion of the bushmen of the Kalahari after tens of thousands of years of habitation.

Mark thanks his parents for being so supportive of his career as a physicist and says some things about mums and dads that are relevant to all academics.
