Just think, in the handful of years man has been traipsing across the Earth’s landscape, the vast majority were spent huddled inside caverns until some smarter than average caveman had the ingenuity to create the wheel, and then BAM! An avalanche of technology occurred in a flash (thousands of years is a heartbeat in the grand scheme of the universe) and now, here we are watching videos of cuddly cats farting on puppies and taking science quizzes on Mindhut. My, how far we have come!!! Well, to celebrate the inventions that brought us from there to here, we’re going to play Science Fact or Science Fiction, a little game where we pose a claim to you and you use your comprehensive scientific acumen to determine whether or not we’re big, fat lying-faced liars or are indeed telling you the truth. So… let’s begin!!!
