#sciFri

If you don’t listen to @iraflatow @scifri every week, you’re missing out. I just learned a ton about cephalopods and will be going to work next week to weird everyone out with my geekiness. #randomknowledge

Amazing moment of parenting success: I start to turn the car radio to music and my 14 year old daughter says, “mom, it’s science Friday.” Thank you @scifri for the many great shows, including today’s report on the gender of animals in research!
