I've always wondered. But Jim Hines provides some experimental proof...
Jim Hines originally shared:
 
Blog Post: Striking a Pose (Women and Fantasy Covers)

I could talk about the way women are posed in cover art, or I could show you. I opted for the latter, in part because it helped me to understand it better. I expected posing ... to feel a little weird and unnatural. I did not expect immediate, physical pain.

More slow-motion film, this time of a popcorn kernel exploding into starchy goodness. More on the physics involved in the 'pop' on my blog: http://tinyurl.com/7jljfjk

Today I learned that staining 52 brains at once is a bit crazy. And hectic.

Two towns over from the place where I live, there is a really tiny library. It's cute, but cramped. It also has no running water and a heater that doesn't work right. The state has promised to pay 60% of the cost of putting up a new building if the library can raise $1.4 million by June 30, 2012. Help -- if not with a donation, then by spreading the word to others.

Patty Brennan, my collaborator on the Force of Duck project, has just published a paper describing the erectile mechanism of ostriches and emus. Like ducks, it's lymphatic, but it isn't as fast or as forceful (to see what erection's like in ducks, check out our #SciFund video: http://bit.ly/swmro9).

A Recent scientific discovery was already a reality for local South African man. Bushy Van Eck of Springs may hold the key to understanding the meaning to life as we know it.  Twenty five years ago he set out to seek the answers to life, living life as an average man but knowing all along he had a gift, his mind. The proof is in the pudding; new research is now substantiating his theory for which he wrote about 4 years ago and discovered on his own many years prior.  Although he did not begin his research until later in life, he became a member of Mensa, wrote a book and has an IQ higher than most college professors. After many years of his own research, and being completely obsessed Bushy began to put it all together.  Then one day after years of research, it all came together. What was so illusive for thousands of scientists and scholars, seeking the answer to the hard question “what is consciousness and where does it come from” Bushy put the pieces together using already known data and his own logic.  His next goal was to share his findings for review and debate, but this would be harder than expected as he was not affiliated with any university and he almost gave up all hope Then just a few weeks ago, Research led by Trinity College Dublin, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh and the University of St Andrews, suggests that time perception is related to a creature's size. Bingo! Research that supports the heart of his theory is now public knowledge.  Finally, a glimmer of hope that will undoubtedly open new doors of opportunity for Bushy to share his theory.  One of his close friends Clayton Nuckelt from the US stated it like this “It doesn’t take a high educated person to understand Bushy’s theory. When there is no clear understanding of a theory, when it just cannot be explained and does not make sense, then what worth is it to humanity? And if such a theory is discovered that brings a better understanding for our existence, it is truly a gift to be shared. I now have the highest appreciation for life in a totally new way, a total new understanding of the human existence  that explains all the questions I ever had about life.”

Patricia Brennan and I joined the SciFund Challenge: we're raising money to study the biomechanics of penile inflation in ducks. Our page just went live on RocketHub -- have a look, donate if you can, and tell your friends!

My ancestors were fish.
Introduction
I'm a biologist who likes to write about science. 
Bragging rights
I'm versatile. I discovered an anatomical feature found in all mammals, wrote some children's books, designed two card games, and (back in 1986) helped start the University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt.
