Shameless Plug Sunday!

Since I’ve spent the day writing my essay and drinking wine, today’s post is short and to the point! (I highly recommend Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Riesling and Gewürztraminer.)

These sciencey items should be on your Christmas list!

Science Ink: Tattoos of the Science Obsessed, by Carl Zimmer
This fascinating book showcases hundreds of eye-catching tattoos that pay tribute to various scientific disciplines, from evolutionary biology and neuroscience to mathematics and astrophysics and reveals the stories of the individuals who chose to inscribe their obsessions in their skin. Best of all, each tattoo provides a leaping-off point for bestselling essayist and lecturer Zimmer to reflect on the science in question, whether it’s the importance of an image of Darwin’s finches or the significance of the uranium atom inked into the chest of a young radiologist.

GIANT Microbes!
Stuffed animals that look like tiny microbes — only a million times actual size! Each comes with an image and information about the real microbe it represents. They make great learning tools, as well as amusing gifts for anyone with a sense of humor. (I’ve got a couple, and I love them–great reactions from friends!)

 Fashion Band-Aids are for grown-ups, too!

My favorites are the pirate, bacon, and comic book varieties.

 M*A*S*H on DVD!
Who doesn’t love this show?!

  1. Ooooh! Looks good! I totally wanted to go as zombie Madame Curie for Halloween, but the makeup was too time consuming. Also, radium is hard to come by.
