First a note - the articles I cite are not necessarily the definitive or signal articles on subjects in the “Wait…What??!!” blog notes. Rather, they are the gates that I have chosen to swing open for your entry. The bibliographies of these articles or a World of Science search can lead you to broader or more focused sources as you like. I hope this issue has piqued your interest!
