Regular TMS science guy Dan would hate to hear that. But it totally works. I swear. This SciShow video helps prove I'm at least right about the breath part.

Please Tell Everyone We Use Our Whole Brains and Not Just 10%, Thanks

Maybe it's that only 10% of people use their brains at all?

If only someone would've told the Lucy screenwriters before... no. Now that I think about it, that probably wouldn't have helped the movie.

The Amazing Scientific Achievements of the Woman Who Kickstarted Paleontology

"Thanks, Mary Anning." -Steven Spielberg [citation needed]

Before Mary Anning and her contemporaries, it was still widely assumed that fossils were just remains from existing animals and not generally useful for science (nor put in the ground by Satan). Thought most of her work wound up being published by men because life in the early 19th century was awful, Anning made a ton of important discoveries—including what bezoar stones actually were, because she needed to see the dinosaurs' droppings.

Hank Green Explains Why Stars Twinkle In This Illuminating Episode of SciShow

When you wish upon a star, nothing happens because stars are not aware of their surroundings and cannot grant wishes.

Contrary to what Inspector Javert might believe, stars don't fill the darkness with order and light because they are the sentinels of the sky. They actually do it because of this thing called science. Though we bet Javert would appreciate a lot of things about science, too. It's very neat and orderly sometimes.

Hank Green Wishes For Another J.K. Rowling Book A Day Before Her Secret Crime Novel Is Revealed [VIDEO]

This is just like magic!

Hank Green, of the Vlogbrothers YouTube channel, makes a point of writing a song about Harry Potter every year on the anniversary of his release of "Accio Deathly Hallows," the wizard rock song that celebrated the impending release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and brought a lot more visibility to the Vlogbrothers channel back in 2007. This year Green seems to have predicted the future with his newest song "Oh, J.K. Rowling," in which he politely requests the author write something new for her many fans. Amazingly, the video was posted two days before the news broke that J.K. Rowling had secretly written a crime novel, The Cuckoo's Calling, under the pseudonym Robert Gailbraith. Since Rowling was revealed to be the author The Cuckoo's Calling has risen from moderate success and favorable reviews to a spot on top of both U.K. and U.S. Barnes & Noble and Amazon sales charts.  The book, which sold 1,500 copies when it was released in the spring, is now selling out and will have to be reprinted. I'm sure Green is thrilled to know that his wish was granted. His timing is almost magical. (via YouTube, Deadline) Previously in J.K. Rowling

The Waiting Game: 6 Things You Can Do To Tide Yourself Over Until Sherlock Series 3

Power Grid

It can be rough when your show goes on hiatus. It can be especially rough when your show goes on hiatus after one of the most emotionally harrowing season finales you've ever seen, with nary a promise of when to return other than "sometime after Peter Jackson frees Martin Freeman from New Zealand." And considering they're going back to film a third Hobbit film, that probably isn't anytime soon. BBC's Sherlock series said they'd start filming the third season "sometime in 2013," which could be anywhere from six months to a year and a half from now. In the meantime, we're still chock-full of what we can only call "Reichenfeels," and sometimes we just don't know where to put all of them. To help ourselves (and you), we put together this list of six things you can do to distract yourself while we wait.

Here, Wake Up to Hank Green’s “Tumblr: The Musical”

Elsewhere on the internet

Tumblr is one of our favorite procrastination tools. It's filled with puppies, Tom Hiddleston, and illustrations of Gina Tores as Wonder Woman. We've posted a musical take on the blogging site here before, but 1) when we came across this one it seemed like a different enough take to double up, 2) we can never get enough references to the sheer amount of Benedict Cumberbatch swimming around our dash, and 3) Hank Green. Not to mention, this particular video features Hipster Ariel, a personal favorite of ours. It also features a line which we'll sure will probably trigger some sort of argument over how to pronounce .GIF. (via Edward Spoonhands)
