Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Big-screen films with some science or sci-fi in them, explained by scientists, with @popupscreens this weekend

This is a lovely idea - an opportunity to watch films in a slightly different way. There are some science or science fiction films and they'll be screened alongside discussions about the science within them, in Chelsea.

Pop Up Screens also do open air screenings, but these ones below are indoors.

Science Flicktion adds a unique scientific insight into a series of films offered up by a super smart scientist and a fairly smart comedian.

Watch a movie.  Learn something.

it's going to be educational and awesome 

A quick reminder that is weekend we're going to answer all your questions about the science in some brilliant movies.  When I was a kid I wanted to know why a terminator made of metal could move like liquid.  When I was 13 I had nightmares about face huggers.  When I was 15 I wanted to know what the problem was Houston.  When I was 17 I wanted to know what any of the maths was and then embarrassingly when I was 20 I still wanted to know why zombies can't run... this weekend all those questions will be answered and then at least 16 more.  Want to know how this is all going to work?  First there'll be an introduction to the film from a super smart scientist and a smartish comedian, then the film will start and then at certain points in the movie we'll pause it and explain what you're about to see or what you've just seen.  You WILL leave knowing something new.

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
