Once You See It ...

Today is the Super Bowl, and like the past two years I'll be live tweeting science facts related to the game. I'll have a post up when the first quarter ends that compiles them, and I'll update it at the end of every quarter (and halftime) with new tweets. They'll be using the tag #Sciperbowl2014, if you want to search for them.

That fun starts around 6:30 Eastern time, so in the meantime here is a silly picture my wife took of me the other day. Look closely. .. I was pretty comfortable in the chair, but clearly not everyone was.
