A spoon is like a headache  

I can't remember who referred me (Metafilter?) to this ambitious takedown of the 90s, but like much of what you'll read at exile.ru it's hilarious because it's so true.

There's also this collection of prominent scientists' thoughts on what the most dangerous idea today might be. Some of the responses are provocative, but on the whole they seem (to me, at least) to be characterized by conventionality rather than the kind of paradigm-smashing insight I expect the organizers were looking for. I guess that's not really surprising, but either way you'll get a good sense of the scientific community if you read through enough of the responses. This one's via ALDaily.
