    "Shift weight from side to side and wave arms awkwardly" has proven effective in my own research.

    Trying to impress someone with your dance moves? There's science for that. Researchers investigated and uncovered which dance moves women find most appealing, which means that, most importantly, we can now say with certainty that the most attractive dance moves are "scientifically accurate ones."

  2. Ph.D. Student’s Interpretive Dance of Her Tornado Research Wins Contest, Also Wins the Internet

    My research will be into why this contest isn't called PhDance.

    The "Dance Your Ph.D." contest, sponsored by Science journal publisher AAAS, tasks students with expressing their research through, well, dance. This year's winner was biologist Uma Nagendra, who just happens to have a leg—and several other limbs—up on the rest of the competition with her double life as a circus aerialist. Hit the jump for a priceless music video about mayonnaise that also came in as a finalist.

  3. Grinding To This Destiny Music Video Would Be Way More Fun Than Grinding For Legendary Gear

    That dance came from the moon.

    If you've made it to level 20 in Destiny, chances are you're stuck grinding for engrams in the hopes that you'll nab some sweet Legendary gear. Or you could just say screw it, and dance your way across the solar system like this one intrepid Guardian. Now that, friends, is truly legendary.

  5. Speaking of Dancing Groot, Guess Who Provided the Moves?

    What, isn't every conversation about dancing Groot right now?

    Just a few hours ago we posted the official video of Groot from the end of Guardians of the Galaxy dancing his tiny twiggy heart out. But as much as we want to pretend that giant talking trees are real and hanging out in actual space, Groot does not actually exist. So whose dance moves were those?

  7. A Bunch of Babies Listened to the Backstreet Boys for Scientific Research

    Think carefully, baby: Howie or A.J.?

    At what point does an infant's response to music transition from unrelated flailing to busting a baby move? A group of scientists undeterred by extreme cuteness observed a bunch of babies "dancing" to The Backstreet Boys to examine when humans develop a sense of rhythm (and if, right? I can't be the only one).

  8. Stow Your Second-Hand Embarrassment and Watch Billy Dee Williams Do a Star Wars Cha Cha On Dancing With the Stars

    To be fair to Billy Dee, it's less him in particular I find embarrassing and more this entire show. It just makes me cringe. Even that snazzy Lando-esque cape with the spangly gold lining cannot rescue this video for me. I demand a memory wipe for the last five minutes of my life. Bail Organa, hook me up? Previously in Dancing with the Stars

    The real winner is anyone who watches this.

    The internet loves Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. Their incredible performances (as Loki and Sherlock, in particular) kind of don't even hold a candle to their real-life charm. But an important question remains: whose moves are smoother, Hiddles' or Cummerbund's? You'll have to decide for yourself.
