The pony-gate scandal fascinates me due to the interest given to its trivia. It has piqued my scientific curiosity concerning the human brain and the paradox of its complexity and how poorly this potential is utilised. I recently attended a public lecture at Waikato University from Warwick Holmes, an Avionics engineer who worked on the […]
