Every time I drop by the Pacific Science Center, I learn new things about meself.
Today, I discovered I could hit my target weight immediately by moving to Saturn.
Madegascar hissing cockroaches don't give me the creeps. Much.
And I've gots to get me that globe filled with rheoscopic fluid that demonstrates the atmospheric turbulence on gas giants like Jupiter. I thought the flat disc full of the stuff was teh awesome, but it's merely nifty compared to a globe of it. And guess what? You can at least get balls of the stuff for $6.95 at stevespanglerscience.com. If anyone knows where to find an empty clear plastic globe on a stand, let me know.
I'm a sucker for fluid turbulence, and I didn't even know it till now...
This is why communities need science centers. Getting your hands on stuff, getting to play and explore, seeing something new or something old in a new way, is enormously enriching as well as entertaining.
The floor is open, my darlings. Tell me what you learn about yourselves when you go play in the fields o' science.
