Good Science, Bad Science

Please do not create nuclear reactors in your homes, people! I thought this went without saying, but apparently, it doesn’t.

Is the sun squishy? This is not a question you can answer by going over there and checking.

And finally! Ada Lovelace is credited with being the world’s first programmer, and yes, she was a chick. And for a while, apparently programming was considered women’s work.

So… did the abusive bad husbands of the era tell their wives to get into the office and write them a program (instead of getting into the kitchen to bake them a pie)? Did they keep them barefoot and pregnant in the computer sweatshop instead of the kitchen? I don’t really know, but it’s definitely an odd thought.
