Welcome to QuirkyScience

I’m Vince, the founder of QuirkyScience—a retired chemist, genealogist, and public Bible instructor. My cousin Ellen is a traveler, mathematician, and computer programmer. We love things technical and puzzling that feature the bizarre or the humorous.

I turn 67 this year. Now that I am retired, the government claims to “care” for me.

As to Ellen—she is sharper than a tack, and writes whimsical pieces belying her age of 86! She never stops sharing her perspectives or being involved as best she can.

Now, some feel science is boring—cut and dried. That’s just wrong. It is exciting. We try to emphasize that, at QuirkyScience! We hope you will enjoy what you see here.

Special Note: “We’d like to give a great big thank-you to Victoria Nicks (MSIT), admin of the DecodedEverything collection of websites, for the new, mobile-friendly look of QuirkyScience.”

P.S. We realize tastes vary: for those of you who stumbled here accidentally and loathe technical topics, we include a smorgasbord of non-science articles.
