Even buried as I am under a stack of PDFs talking about PDEs, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out some juicy videos describing actual, factual cutting-edge science, namely the talks from Rockefeller’s recent evolution symposium. I’m currently in the middle of Bruce T. Lahn’s (U Chicago) talk, “Probing Human Brain Evolution at the Genetic Level.” Click here and scroll down to find the link. What could be more appropriate for an elitist bastard than an explanation of genes which control brain size?

(Thanks go out to Abbie.)

    An explanation of genes controlling brain size plus a genetic test showing that you have the bestest alleles, of course.

  1. Indubitably.

    Pah sir! A true elitist would not need any test; he would simply know that he possessed the necessary genes for utter superiority.

  2. But mustn’t an elitist convince others of his superiority, rubbing his genetic advantages in their little Epsilon-Minus faces?

    An interesting point. I shall ponder it deeply using my massive, genetically advantaged brain.

  3. Perhaps I shall take to proclaiming that the heavy backpack I carry about with me is the recepticle for my excess brain capacity. Would that be elitist enough?

    Meh. Only if I could fill it with pages printed from Science After Sunclipse. ;-)
