I probably spend a little too much effort into organizing all my posts into categories. I just decided to go back through the past year and put a bunch of posts into a new category, experiments.
My favorite example is One: the universe's favorite digit. There I hypothesized that the fundamental constants of the universe are distributed logarithmically, made a prediction, and went out and confirmed that prediction. It's the scientific method!
Okay, so I'm not exactly doing professional science here, nor am I even blowing stuff up like they do on Mythbusters. Most of the "experiments" are math experiments. But they're fun! I get to participate in the production of new knowledge. I get to adopt a "look and see" attitude, rather than just making arguments based on my prior beliefs.
