I saw a neat shirt on Mythbusters. Where can I get it?

Earlier tonight, during the Mythbusters marathon, I saw various 'Busters wearing a "WARNING: SCIENCE IN PROGRESS" shirt. It had a sign with an explosion and a guy fleeing the blast. I've searched around, but have not been able to find it. Anyone know where they got 'em?

What are some of the best layman's books on the latest advances in physics?

I've read a few really good works on quantum physics and other cutting-edge sciences, and I'd like to know more. However, I'm coming at this topic from a decidedly non-scientific education. Can someone suggest a few titles?

Why might a cat have no ears ?

I met a cat in the street tonight and didn't have any ears. I was walking down a quiet street and saw a white cat sitting in the middle of the street, it didn't move as I approached. I got to abaout 10 ft and stopped, and called to it. It came over and was clearly not afraid. It did not have any ears, it had holes where ears would be and the holes were clean, no flaps or raggedy bits. We bonded easy enough, I was able to lift the creature onto my lap, it was purring. It was skinny and I think under fed, certainly my own cats which are lean, are much fuller in body. Why might a cat have no ears ? Is it an act of malice or surgery ? Disese or cruelty ? Birth defect ? It made me very sad.

Is my belief in science more scientific than your belief in God?

How is my belief that the world is round any more scientific than someone else's belief that a benevolent deity listens to her prayers? (I know this may seem chatty or open-ended, but I have a feeling that there is a neat argument out there that would wrap up this question for me, and meanwhile I'm in a bit of philosophical crisis about it.)

The "steam" cloud

Science question. Why is it that when you kill the heat to a pot of boiling water, it suddenly emits lots of condensation clouds? Shouldn't it be making those "steam" clouds while it boils?

Is there a way to determine the THC content of my "Green Dragon" mixture?

I'm not a smoker, so I consume most of my THC by steeping 1/4 oz of weed in 26 oz of 151-proof rum. (After a week or so, I strain the rum and consume it about a tablespoon at a time. It suits my needs quite well.) I remember from my days of making homemade wine that there was a fairly easy way to estimate the alcohol content of wine by measuring the specific gravity before and after fermentation. Is there any similar method to get a ballpark idea of how much THC is in my rum?

90% of scientific basis is wrong? wtf, please.

My religion prof. tried to tell our class that there was a 'scholar' who did research and came up with the claim that 90% of the presumptions upon which current science is based are wrong. Where can I find who said this so that I can find a rebuttle saying it is crap?
