The best games for PS4
Sony's PlayStation 4 is at the end of its life, but if anything that makes picking the “best games” harder than ever. With well over 1,500 titles to choose from, the sheer volume of games on offer, coupled with the subjective nature of the medium, makes it im…

Mass Panic Is Unlikely, Even During a Pandemic
Hollywood tells us humans are prone to lose all rationality in a disaster, looting and trampling one another. But that’s not giving our brains any credit.
Theres an old trope that when faced with disaster, human beings lose all rationality, running around panicking, looting and trampling one another. But that, as it turns out, is an exceedingly rare response in real life, according to researchers who study how … [+4260 chars]

Covid-19 Is Nothing Like the Spanish Flu
A widely-cited stat about death rates seems to argue otherwise, but it's surely incorrect. So how'd it end up in the research literature?
