“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.” – Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

New Features For The New Year

The New Year is just around the corner. To thank our loyal readers, Fresh Brainz is delighted to roll out a weekly series of new features - coming your way soon!

After 17 months of generally random meandering, we will become a slightly more organized science "blog-azine", complete with regular features for news, commentary and of course, entertainment articles.

Here's a sneak preview of what's in store:

Mondays suck, big time. So it isn't half surprising that ranting comes naturally. Cranky Monday (or Crankémon for short) highlights rants, satire, bad poetry, de-motivational posters and other channels of negativity that bemoan my miserable existence.

A nod to tradition, Fresh Science Tuesdays continue to bring you the latest news in science and technology - courtesy of the world science 'o sphere.

Did you just ruin your gel for the nth time? Accidentally sucked away the pellet? Science isn't only about the high tech stuff, sometimes you need a cheap, simple and non-obvious trick. Tidbits On Midweek (TOM) offers practical solutions and other hands-on tips that can can save you hours of grief.

As the working week draws to a close, flickers of optimism start to reappear in that much coveted period of Paradise that we call the "weekend". Not limited to science, What the Friday (WTF!?!!) is a celebration of the wild, bizarre and sex-starved world that we live in.

Need to know the real details behind the hottest issues in science today? Then go read a book, you lazy-ass. Luckily I'm just as lazy, and so Sciencey Saturdays (Sci Sat) are slated to provide concise, easy-to-read reviews and critiques of groundbreaking or controversial scientific studies.

Sundays are for quiet reflection. For a leisurely trip to the park to paint a pretty picture of the beautiful scenery... NOT! Arty Sundays (Artisun) showcase my middling abilities in digital art and photography; a futile exercise in ego inflation that will inevitably and predictably be popped by the return of Monday.

So there you have it - an exciting weekly line up that is all set to go from January 2008.

Stay tuned!
