Top Five Stories Of The Week On HuffPost Science, Jan. 14-18 (VIDEO)

From a gross spider video gone viral to a new study about violent video games, the week was full of interesting science news. I had a chance to count down the top five stories in science with HuffPost Live producer/host Alyona Minkovski.

She gave me only 30 seconds for the rundown--so for a quick review of the week's top stories check out the video above. Or watch the full segment below. And don't forget to leave your thoughts in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Come on, talk nerdy to me!
