It seems that scientists are pretty rubbish in describing their work in language that the average person can read.
So some are turning to the use of Emoji and using Emoticons to get across their message.
These are characters like the smiley face and people are using them to replace big words like "mouse" with pictures of mice. There is a even a Emoji Dictionary.
Should we change the blog...What do you think?
However, one reason that English is a good science language....(a) Many people round the world speak it and (b) it has lots of words to describe things...unlike the Emoji Dictionary.
I think it is better to treat people like adults :-)
