Have yourself a science appetizer:
- I think the headline sums it up: “Next, the Turducken: Scientists Say a Duck Has Fathered a Chicken.” As my wife said, “Talk about Frankenfood.”
- I’ve always liked dragonflies, but this article says it all: they’re the perfect of mix of beauty and badass.
- You might have a unique “breathprint,” a mix of chemicals and gases in their exhaled breath that is as much yours as your fingerprints.
- To quote Inigo Montoya, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Scientific American lists the seven most misused scientific words.
- Obama puts his (our?) money where our brain is.
- There is a bacterium that eats rocket fuel. For breakfast, lunch and dinner.
- My kids love building castles and houses and stuff in Minecraft. I can’t wait to tell them that someone’s built a neuron in it.
- Stop flushing your old drugs..they might be wreaking havoc on rivers’ food chains. (So says my sister-in-law!)
- Like New Scientist, you could call it “interspecies telepathy.” First it was hooking the brains of two rats together. Now researchers have used a computer to network a rat’s brain to that of a person.
