Science is a pain in the neck

Maria avatar
My friend Christian is married to my other friend Maria, who is a Skepchick. Christian just had his thyroid removed, and Maria, whom I love with all my heart, wrote a fantastic personal piece about how science has saved her husband.

The essay has some NSFW language in it, and I can’t blame her: if some garbage pseudoscience were on TV while I sat with my spouse who was recovering from a life-saving procedure made possible by centuries of disparate scientific achievement, I’d want to reach through the TV and throttle all the liars who advertise there too.

Maria, you done good. You too, Christian.
