I was going to start a thread “Thoughts on Intellectual Dishonesty” - but my heart ain’t in it just now.
I did get to listen/watch a wonderful talk this evening.
A more pragmatic look at an aspect of some actual factual wonders of our molecular world.
Hell, of our bodies.
If you’ve every been fascinated by DrewBerry videos of molecular machinery in action you’ll probably like this talk.
At about 18:00 he describes some of the technics used to study these molecular machines.
Though he never touches on the molecule soup that these machines move through, it’s still a wonderful amount of info in a half hour.
