Is awkward silence plaguing your small talk? Blind date conversation growing stale before the appetizers?
All of us at Occam’s Taser, we’ve been there. That’s why we spend our Friday nights online, sifting through the boring stuff to bring you the juicy, conversation-stimulating tidbits you crave.
The scientific principle of Occam’s Razor dates back to the 14th-century Franciscan friar William of Ockham who (more or less) said, “the simplest explanation is usually the correct one”. That’s where we came up with the taser: sometimes we just need a shock for it to make sense.
By applying Occam’s Taser to life, we’ll compile recent and potentially surprising academic (condensed) research from around the world and connect it to a week’s worth of related info designed to make life simpler. Simpler is better.
So get ready to be zapped with the most recent, and intriguing academic research. You can look forward to articles about new technology, media, wellness and lifestyle. We’re making this research relevant and applicable to everyday life so the next time you stand at the water cooler or run into your ex, you can bring something up besides the weather. Back-up plans aren’t just for McGuyver.
Not just news you can use, but news you should use! Saving you from the dangers of awkward on the daily.
