I am scientist by training, inclination and temperament. However, this is a blog, not a lab. The title reflects my passion for hyperbole, so don't take me too seriously. I don't. I was a technician in a physiology lab, got my PhD in molecular genetics and neuroscience, was a postdoctoral fellow in biophysics and now am a Project Manager in a Clinical Science/Biomedical Informatics institute. I am a scientific jack-of-all-trades, and very happy because of it. I write about science that catches my eye, making the transition away from the lab bench, and the slightly odd and moist boundary where science culture meets the public. I am an Englishman by birth, an American by temperament and if I were you I wouldn't lend me money.

Second Test, Bangalore, day five: India 495 & 207-3 beat Australia 478 & 223 by seven wickets
"Debutant Cheteshwar Pujara struck a confident 72 as India eased to a seven-wicket win over Australia in Bangalore to complete a 2-0 series victory.
Set 207 to win, India lost Virender Sehwag early on but hit back with a 72 stand between Pujara and Murali Vijay.
Their dismissals gave the visitors hope but veterans Sachin Tendulkar (53) and Rahul Dravid (21) saw the hosts home.
The loss pushes Australia down to fifth in the Test rankings, one place below England going into next month's Ashes."
I promise to expand this post with content later, but for now, a simple, "Meh! Eh! Good show! Bloody good show! Eh! GAve the Oz a thrashing, what!" will suffice.

Australia losing to India does not give any indications of what will happen in the ashes though. In fact this may cause them to rally and improve between now and then.
Only because he knows what Australia will do to England in the Ashes. Let him have his small victories.
No matter what, he's still a Pom.
I support England and anybody playing against Australia.
