a daily zeitgeist
paradigm shift ahoy
microchips have just been designed that run on magnetism instead of electricity

spray on nano solar cells can collect power even on a cloudy day - with further work becoming five TIMES as efficient as the best current designs

no more floating point computers, the real way to advance science & technology is with interval based maths (insanely complex, but incredibly powerful)

genes might not be the only way that information is inherited.. prions (a tiny form of protein) are starting to suggest a similar role

there are no organic fish any more. Plastic in the oceans is going up at a geometric rate, which means fish are basically dining out on the tiny broken down pieces of it

life starting in a "hot clay primordial soup" is a fallacy

a tutorial for women on how to pee standing up

and just because.. wuh? video footage from a motorcyclist's point of view, as a car smashes into her, and of a goldfish - they remove the water from its bowl, replace it with mountain dew (which kills it), replace that with water, then bring it back to life with a 9v battery. yeah, exactly, wuh?

'special' nanoparticles called quantum dots

are just the smallest of the small and spherical 'tis all...... also, this is the most information they give us about what these things are? inquiring minds want to know.....

I loved the motorcycle video. If I ever get hit by a car like that while I'm on my bike (bicycle), I hope people dont all crowd around me asking me stupid questions because they saw one too many E.R. or Third Watch episodes. Get the F away from me and just call the paramedics. If I'm bleeding and unconcious, apply some pressure to the wound but otherwise get the F out of my face.

I dont think the Mt. Dew really did anything with the fish... its all about the 9volt action I'm sure. Unless the Dew gave the 9volt a better connection to the fish.

I wacthed it really closely, to try and see if the fish was actually dead, or just really, really shocked.. looking for fin twitching, that kind of thing, but I really couldn't see anything.

the dew was removed before the battery was put in there..

and as for the accident, well, even stupid people caring is better than no people caring at all :)
