13 Things 

The New Scientist posted a very interesting summary today, called "13 Things That Do Not Make Sense." Many of the things of course involve physics, which as an whole never made much sense to me. I'm generally in awe of physicists...I can't get my head around the math, or something, and it all just sounds So Cool.

Also on the list is the placebo effect, both a useful tool and an annoyance for researchers in the medical realm, and the strange dilution effects seen in examinations of homeopathics. It's not mentioned, but the big scandal on that topic is, of course, the idea of "water memory."
