Spare Parts (Crowd Game) | Life as a reanimation researcher can get pretty lonely at times. The nights are long, the work is arduous, and the subject matter is not exactly something you'd put on a dating profile. However, your labors in the name of science have finally paid off. The formula for reanimation of recently deceased tissue has finally mice. It's times to step up the clinical trials schedule and move on to bigger and better things! Find the gravediggers, morticians, and other possible sources of human bits and pieces and make yourself a friend who is dying for your affections. Someone who has the utmost admiration for your work. Someone who has all the right stuff in all the right places.

Scientific Roots for our Scary Legends @ 9:00PM | Humans need explanations for what scares them, and pre-science people came up with many fanciful legends of monsters, demons, witches, and ghosts. Blood-suckers who can walk on walls and fly like bats, men who turn into wolves with the full moon, zombified slaves, and ravenous reanimated corpses. With science, Andrew Sylwester will explain how we can now revisit these legends and speculate on diseases and conditions that prompted these elaborate stories.
