ArsTechnica: Each week, the science staff here at Ars goes through a flood of press releases and journal papers, looking for the most compelling science to cover. Each week, we also end up scratching our heads over some of the work that gets done, mystified by the motivation behind it, the choice of techniques, and the general strangeness of the natural world and human behavior. The best of that sort of material ends up in our Sunday Weird Science column. It's hard to have any objective standard of weirdness or bemusement to choose a top-10 list from, so what follows is a completely arbitrary collection of stories that simply struck me as especially enjoyable. Hope you end up feeling the same.
