25-Oct Friday Fail: Guest edition!

Ok, I've talked a lot about my fails and how I think it's really helpful for people to admit their failures. We're not all perfect but a lot of us like to appear perfect in social media. I find some children in schools are terrified of failing, that to fail is the worst thing that can happen to them. When really, failing is part of learning. You truly don't know anything well enough until you fail at it first.

This week I did have many failures but today I'd thought I'd mix it up and post a link to a failure I read about in the news.

This week it's a great article on the BBC News Website: Migrating Russian eagles run up huge data roaming charges

I love this story, it's such a great example of failure in science. I can imagine the Russian scientists getting the bill and going "oh... we didn't think of this!" :)
