Gilmore Girls Seasons 1-7

So, in July, I started watching Gilmore Girls for no apparent reason other than the revival that came out few days ago on Netflix; I thought it'd be a cute show to watch, to kill some time, and it'll be some good entertainment. But, I don't even know how, I got hooked on to this …

Quantum Weirdness

Quantum Weirdness Or What the Hell is this Going On? We all know that Quantum Mechanics is weird; weird doesn’t begin to explain what it really is, but all we can say is weird.

Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood Review

This is the four hundredth year of Shakespeare, and his plays are enjoyed, and loved, and relevant today, as they were in his time. The Hogarth Press was started by Virginia and her husband Leonard Woolf back in the early 20th Century. Virginia Woolf was a lover of Shakespeare, and that was reflected in her …

So, believe me when I tell you that this book breathes new life into the Time Travel genre. Rebecca is married to brilliant, albeit weird and sciencalholic physicists Phillip who has …

(This is something I wrote a while back for my University) Take a look at the night-sky and what do you see? Stars, constellations, a moon, the occasional planet, maybe a shooting star, but everything else is dark. Theory and several observations suggest that the Milky Way, the galaxy in which our humble solar system lies, has millions …

United States of Japan by Peter Tieryas

Science Fiction Books off late have been very disappointing. They are either formulaic or they get very predictable, or they fall into the usual tropes which I just find annoying. I try to preface all my reviews of Science Fiction books with my distaste for modern science fiction, with a few exceptions of course. It's …

A to Z Challenge: Science Writing

I don't even know why I got turned onto Science Writing. It's a very weird thing in my opinion, but I thought it was appropriate given that I'm majoring in Physics with a minor in English (Seriously, start taking shots when I mention Physics and English; if I did that, I'd be out and sloshed …
