Friday Roundup: 2011 top science lists, radium laced condoms, and the clitoris

A Double X Science grandma showed us this picture.
We thought it was the most ridiculously cute thing we'd seen all year.
As 2011 draws to a close, media outlets and science bloggers have busily collated their top-10 (or 12 or 20) lists of science-related cool/interesting/freaky/fantastic stuff this year. Here's a selection that should keep you busy for about the first half of 2012:

Enjoy!


Health 'n' stuff
  • Do you know the clitoris? Not many people really do. Read this. It's important information, not to mention mindblowingly cool.
  • Put the toilet seat lid down when you flush. Please.
  • Emily Willingham, Double X Science managing editor, is also an editor on a new book just out, The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism. Consider buying a copy to leave in your pediatrician's office or to donate to your local library.
  • Once upon a time, people made condoms that glowed in the dark, thanks to radium. Yikes.
Sciencey fun!
