Atomic Nerds

Great Blog:

They often have very good, very detailed posts discussing the science
behind current issues. This is the lecture you wish you got you in
science classes. An excerpt from the latest one:

"The human population and its genetic temperamental makeup is like
what you would get if family-car and race-car parts were distributed
randomly, instead of being assembled by a designer that knew exactly
what he was aiming for. Geniuses are what happens when you get a
complete race car by luck of the draw; the mad are what you get when
you get a car that has a race-car engine and suspension and
family-sedan seatbelts and brakes."
