About this site

Ignorance is Bliss is the newest version of a satirical site spawned in the minds of two university students, back in 2011. Bored by the current satirical offerings and wanting to dabble in journalism, Ryan and Liam set to making the scientific world engaging to lay people, but also hopefully making some jokes that only experts will understand so they still have something to feel smug about.

News in Brief is a new portion of the site where readers dip their toe in the waters of science satire, but not fully submerge.

Cause and Effect is the part of the site where we drop any serious articles we happen to write, for this blog or otherwise. Go here for actual journalism (edit – unless written by Liam).

The site is updated as and when we have time to write. We hope you enjoy it!
