Science, then, is not like the onion in the often used analogy of stripping away layer after layer to get at some core, central, fundamental truth. Rather it’s like the magic well: no matter how many buckets of water you remove, there’s always another one to be had. Or even better, it’s like the widening ripples on the surface of a pond, the ever larger circumference in touch with more and more of what’s outside the circle, the unknown. This growing forefront is where science occurs… It is a mistake to bob around in the circle of facts instead of riding the wave to the great expanse lying outside the circle.

Stuart Firestein, from Ignorance: How It Drives Science

I was reminded of this quote, which sums up the driving force of the scientific process better than just about anything I’ve ever read, today after watching the latest Vlogbrothers video, in which Hank Green channels his inner Socrates:

Crazy. DOOM on an ATM. An exploration video. Posted by HackADay.-LT

There aren’t too many details available about this hack, but we still thought it was interesting enough to share. YouTube user [Aussie50] seems to have figured out a way toinstall DOOM on an automated teller machine (ATM). Not only is the system running the software, it also appears that they are using the ATM’s built-in buttons to control the action in-game.

You are on your way from the LOCAL LIBRARY to the U-HAUL rental center to rent a moving van when you are suddenly confronted by a TEMPLAR KNIGHT. He wields his BROADSWORD threateningly, expressing through his firm body language that he shows no interest in letting you pass. What is your course of action?

leave

You turn and walk away from the LOCAL LIBRARY, abandoning your mission to rent a moving van from the U-HAUL rental center. The TEMPLAR KNIGHT does not pursue you; as you make some distance from him, you can hear him sheathing his BROADSWORD back into its scabbard. You get home, but you never do rent a U-Haul van and have to give away all of your belongings in your old apartment before you move into your new apartment, leaving you eternally bitter and unhappy…
GAME OVER
