Scotty's Blog: How and Why Explained in a Nutshell

Scotty's Blog Each week, we post one new article about an unusual topic. You will find no advertising, sales pitches, promotions, nor discounts here.
Simply put, the topic is something that we find interesting, informative and as surprising as possible.

The topics range broadly from wildlife (ex., cephalopods) to oddities (ex., Bohol's Chocolate Hills) to tips and explanations (ex., how to equalize your ears) and to ideas we have not thought of yet.

Expect to see science education for the whole family, as well as suggestions for amazing things to see and do.
