15 Questions Science Somehow Can't Answer
Science has existed for at least 100 years, and it’s arguably humanity’s greatest invention. In that time, we’ve figured out that mold kills bacteria, split the atom, identified the double helix, and created an entire internet, all thanks to a systematic process of knowledge and discovery (and some microscopes and stuff). Is there anything this thing can’t do?
Well, quite a lot, it turns out. We’re talking some basic-ass things, from why we yawn to how we feel pain. Look, humans are super complicated, and it’s not exactly easy to study an organ (i.e. the brain) with itself, but that doesn’t explain how we don’t even understand how bicycles work. Thought you were just commuting to clown college? Think again. Congratulations: You’re a scientific miracle performing a mysterious feat of physics. Feel free to make it the affirmation you repeat to yourself in the mirror every morning as you don your big red nose.
