Frankenstein – how the original story was very different from later presentations.

Mice more evolved than humans.  DNA studies show that mice have had the strongest Natural Selection, and apes) including humans) less than average.

Humans and Chimps.  In terms of DNA, chimps have had the most evolution.

Superorganisms – Ant Nests and Human Religions.  Some more parallels.

Big fierce animals are losers.  The monsters of the past mostly perished without issue.

Mammals that ate dinosaurs.  (But still went extinct, with smaller mammals being our shared ancestors.)

The Decline of US Science.  Bell Labs did good work which led on to useful products.  But modern business thinks short-term and neglects such things.

The Large Hadron Collider in 2008.  One Tetravolt is about the same energy as a flying mosquito.   But if you can squeeze that sort of energy into a space about a million million times smaller than a mosquito, interesting things happen.
