6 Celebrities With Completely Weird Ideas About Science

One of the weirder bits of news making headlines this week was that our beloved Red on “Orange Is The New Black” may be a little bit kooky in real life. Why would I say such a thing? Because the actress Kate Mulgrew has narrated a documentary with some pretty kooky beliefs about science:  namely, the idea the Earth does not actually revolve around the sun but instead the sun revolves around the Earth. Geocentricism what what?!?  In a new documentary called “The Principle” narrated by Mulgrew, she intones, “Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong.”

Considering this is the woman, Amelia reminds me, that played Captain Janeway on “Star Trek: Voyager,” it seemed a little odd that Mulgrew would be so ill-informed. Turns out, Mulgrew is now saying she was misled into doing the narration for the documentary and that she was simply a voice for hire who should have done more research. Um, no kidding? Didn’t Mulgrew realize she was narrating junk science as the junk science narration was spilling out of her mouth? [Raw StoryAV Club]

Kate Mulgrew, inadvertent or not, isn’t the first celeb to spew interesting beliefs about science. There are actually quite a few celebrities who have made comments about science that gave us a double take. Let’s take a walk through a couple celebs who we think should keep their day jobs…

Poor Snooki just can’t catch a break. The “Jersey Shore” star is not wanted in Florence, Hoboken, and now you can add one more locale to the list. Dozens of residents of New Jersey’s Berkeley Township took to the council meeting last night to protest Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s plan to shoot reality spin-off “Snooki and JWoww,” starring herself and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, in the Pelican Island neighborhood, the Star-Ledger reports; they’ve even hired an attorney for the fight. Read more on Newser…

A History Of Tanning Culture, From Coco Chanel To Snooki

A History of Tanning Culture, From Coco Chanel to Snooki

Summertime. Cue the languid bathers soaking in the blistering summer sun in the park, on the beach and just about everywhere you look. Everyone’s trying to get that summer glow. Unless, of course, you’re me. I’m the girl reapplying her broad spectrum sunscreen and wearing a big floppy sun hat.

I’ve written before about why I don’t tan. Still, though I long ago accepted that my skin would never be described as “sun-kissed” or “bronzed,” the culture of tanning fascinates me. One in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their lives; skin cancer is now the most common form of cancer in the United States. Incidences of melanoma, the deadliest of skin cancers, increased by 800 percent in women and 400 percent in men between 1970 and 2009. Of the seven most common forms of cancer in America, melanoma is the only one whose incidence is increasing, and people who use a tanning bed before the age of 35 increase their risk of melanoma by 87 percent. Tanning has become akin to smoking – people know it puts them at risk for disease, but many just can’t stop. A significant number of those who have reluctantly dragged themselves out of the sun and tanning beds still spray tan. So what gives? Read more on College Candy…
