Blog posts from the perhaps-inscrutably-named but nonetheless hilarious NCBI ROFL have been a mainstay of DISCOVER's site for years now. What's not to love about the authors' explication of why a smile conceals more than a poker face, whether Gollum suffers from multiple personality disorder, or how one girl apparently got pregnant via oral sex? That's why we've decided to give them their own space. Discoblog will be retiring, and NCBI ROFL will be taking on a new identity: "Seriously, Science?" Because it's not just ROFL science in their sights, but interesting, crazy and weird science that gets you thinking, blushing, or scratching your head. The new-and-improved version is already up and running with a post about how the sound of vomiting affects your moral judgements---so click over and check it out now! And while you're at it, update your bookmark and your RSS feed so you can stay on top of their daily posts. Because---seriously---you don't want to miss this science.
