I thought this was interesting, but I felt guilty because I've largely stopped reading Nautilus and only clicked on this one for the novelty of the byline, so I didn't post it. But then I remembered I stopped reading Nautilus because it's mostly pseudo-scientific crap nowadays, and it used to be thought-heavy, well-written stuff like the above.
