This Metanode is dedicated to the scientific worlds of both experimentation and statistical information gathering. I am a strong believer that information is invaluable, and is to be shared freely to sate (or slightly abate at least) humanities’ thirst for knowledge.

The following nodes have been categorised by yours truly into rough groupings. As more nodes are added, perhaps the number of groups will grow to make it more specific.

If you have a node, or know of some that should list, please feel free to /msg me, or pop in a soft-link and I’ll add it to the list when I bother checking next.
