Meteor-wrongs

I love geeky science web sites. Via Science Magazine's site, I found this collection of rocks that people have thought were meteorites; by clicking on the pictures, it tells you why it's probably not a meteorite.

I also love geeky science memory aids. One of my favorites is from Scott Adams, writer of Dilbert.blog, discussing how to remember the difference between stalactites and stalagmites:

"Remember, stalagmites might stick to the ceiling, but they don't"

My method for remembering those was always that stalagtites have to hold on "tite" to stay on the ceiling.

Every time I walk into caves I remember my buddy Roy Biv who was impaled on a s'titte.

Next time you're in Southwest Oregon, try to visit the Oregon Caves.
If you're not claustrophobic, that is.
