My son was searching the web, about a 2 months ago, looking for information his science project. His project was on why is Mars red. He found your site and asked me to look at the information. I thought it was really funny. I think your site is incredible. The funny thing is that some people probably think that Mars is red because of men being angry. I think your site is great. Although it doesn't really provide legitimate information, it's good to see someone having fun on the net.

Hey, you morons,

I tried to sign up for your newsletter this morning, got the famous "404 - can't find the website error message"...twice. You trying to be funny, or is the website offer gone? Sheesh...Hey, have a good day, after all it IS Monday morning and you have a whole weekend of email to shuffle through. Put me at the top of the "return" list though...Otherwise I'll forget who you are.



My name is Violeta,

and I just wanted to say that I think your site is absolutely friggin' GENIOUS!! I mean, this is my favorite site from now on (I just found out about it via Google), and I'm telling my friends about it!

Who ever wrote this article about why these certain things are colored the way they are....is sooooooo funny. I want to marry a scientist. You guys are so intelligent and so funny at the same time. What a way to learn. Cute!



First, notice the time I sent this email. No, I didn't wake up early to view your site. But, I did stay up really late and make myself crazy by trying to figure out my reletive position to physics.

Just as my mass was about to reach infinite, I found your site and Laughed harder than I've laughed in a while.I almost coughed up my stomach after rteading the cat/toast one. Thanks for saving me from becoming a singularity.



I just came across your site and read a few articles. Are you guys high while you write this stuff? I would have to assume, you must be smoking pot if you write stuff like this. No offense, just wondering.




Water is wet because water molecules adhere to most other objects better than they adhere to eachother so water tends to "stick" to us, for example, better than to other water molecules. Liquid mercury is not wet because it has a greater tendency to stick to other mercury atoms than to other objects so if you dunk your finger in mercury and pull it out, there will be no mercury on your skin, i.e. it won't be wet.

Thank you,
