In commercials we often hear "consult your doctor." Well, apparently a lot of people consult Suzanne Somers. For some reason our brains are wired to believe health advice from movie stars and pop singers . . . which makes no sense at all. This week's News For Nerds looks into this weird phenomenon.
Plus, I hate to scare you just before the holidays, but there's a monster volcano pulsating beneath Yellowstone National Park, and when it blows, it will make for a very, very bad day in Denver. (PS, it's just about due for an eruption.)
It's not all gloom and doom, though. You'll also be treated this week to a gorgeous Celestial Holiday Wreath, a sweet gift courtesy of the Hubble Space Telescope and a particular star.
To see it all, just follow this digital wormhole right here.
It's time to get your nerd on!
