Here’s something that’s a little bit more fun.

Via The Intersection, Yahoo has a list of the top 10 scientifically inaccurate movies.  Of course, something like this is great fodder for those late night conversations when everything makes sense, but it’s fun to page through their choices and snicker at the really bad science in there.

For some reason, this also reminded me of a series of videos by Dr. Jim Kakalios (who wrote the book The Physics of Superheroes) in which he talks about some of the science in comics.  Here’s the video where he discusses the death of Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man;  Kakalios is a great presenter, and it’s a fun topic, so give it a watch.

Here’s some of the other ones as well:
