Science Comedy Video

A montage of some of my science comedy routines, taken mostly from two events at the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences (in 2006 and 2007).

A couple clips from my 2008 performance appear earlier in this blog (on cell phones and Karma) and more are coming soon.

Too Much Sodium

My sister told me recently that she won’t eat Chinese food anymore because it has too much sodium.

But isn’t that ridiculous? To single out one element from the Periodic Table? You’d have to have a pretty sensitive palette:

“Oh, I don’t eat Mexican food… too much magnesium!


“Waiter, I’m sorry, I asked for the beryllium on the side…”


“Nothing ruins a ham and cheese sandwich like a tad too much molybdenum.”

How many times have you said that?

Personally, I love Chinese food. I don’t care if there’s plutonium in it… it might be a little hot, but I’m eating it.
