This entire website is designed, written, and maintained by me, Steve Silverman.  However, this site would not exist if it were not for the positive feedback that I have received via e-mail from thousands of people worldwide (thanks!).

I am a science teacher at Chatham High School, which is located near Albany, New York.  I currently teach Physics and Earth Science.  I originally started collecting these stories as a way to make my classes more interesting, but little of what I research outside of school ever makes it into the classroom anymore.

I hope that my strange sense of humor does not offend any person out there in cyberspace. I have found each of the stories presented to be favorites among the people that have heard them. I will be posting additional stories periodically, so check back from time to time.

For additional details on my life check out:

All About Steve Silverman-  I have been adding a sentence or two here and there to this section for many years, so this is probably more than you ever wanted to know about me.
National Enquirer article on my book.
Site review from the Christian Science Monitor (September 23, 1998).
