Techmology and Scientism / Re: Weekly Science Headlines

Hi Nigel. :)

Space rocks made into beads 2000 years ago and then transported 700 km only to be buried in the ground. I like the progression accruing of knowledge in this story. I mean, it's no surprise that major trade happened in that time, but it's nice having evidence of where and how far.

UC Berkeley researchers find there are some common plant chemicals that shut down the rotor motor (Catsper) for sperm tails. Potential for new contraceptives?

By complete chance, the Chicxulub asteroid could not have impacted a worse place for the biosphere. A few minutes difference would have been ocean, either way, which probably wouldn't have blocked the sun for weeks or more, and we'd probably still be rodent sized. On second thought, maybe chance was in our favor?

Eldrich arms around a dick.

Five word porn is a different thread.

Insect genitalia is pornographic?

Well.

I guess that explains a lot.

A great profile of an entomologist who regularly deals with cases of delusional parasitosis. When you are known as a public entomologist, you get asked to diagnose such things. Thankfully, I haven't dealt with this yet. Sad fact: While the majority of these people are treatable with anti-psychotics, the majority will never accept that treatment.

I realized I reacted to ASMR videos several years ago. Not all of them, certainly not the head touching ones, but the page turning and paper crinkling ones were particularly effective. How could I not know this about myself for 30 years? Not that I buy any of the pseudo-science nonsense about why it's happening. Just another one of those weird things about humans that neurologists haven't figured out yet.

Kai!  Hello!  How's your science?

Kuhnian. And full of eldritch genitalia.

Jet stream shenanigans leading to some extreme weather patterns. I guess that would explain why we had a frost last night, on the 7th of May, which is past the 95% confidence interval date for our location. And why we had to bring the garden pots inside last night.

Fish eye mind control parasite, another example of why evolution is not kind.

Pumping cold sea water onto arctic ice during winter. However, refreezing the arctic ocean wouldn't do much to the feedback cycle of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Nor would it reduce sea level rise, which is largely from glaciers on Greenland and Antarctica.




Also, hi. I'm a little surprised to see this thread is still going. I feel good about that, actually. And nervous to be here after so long.

To be honest, I don't usually understand what you're talking about, and given that you've got some Zalgo He-Who-Sees-Behind-The-Walls thing going, I'm a bit afraid to reply.

This whole situation reminds me too much of the Muenster Anabaptist Rebellion.

With a combination of my upcoming prelims, presentations what it seems like every week, and trying to write 1600 words every night, I've been too exhausted to write anything else. There will probably not be much from me till after my defense in January.
