Immune cell that kills most cancers discovered by accident by British scientists by Vigte in science

Perfect example: I distinctly remember THREE "cancer cures" - but only because they were all developed at universities in my area, each one was local news (for a day) and everyone talked about each one, each time. Then they stopped talking about it when the next thing came up - and the cure was never brought up again - so people weren't reminded.

Of course this may mean that the news (as with the article above) was over-hyped or the scientists were lying - or honestly mistaken; it could also mean conspiracy - but I don't know which. Such is life...

It's my understanding that the magnetic North and South poles are actually drifting towards one another.

The feild strength is supposedly 85% of what it was mid century.

I posted a couple of things about this in the summer/fall when you were on inverse hiatus.

Edit: magnetic poles. Crucial distinction.

idk, is it really weakening? maybe the weak magnetic field is localized in time and space to this area in antarctica. also, the ozone layer is thinner there, maybe that's another reason they can get through.

some scientists proposed that the four forces are just the ones we know about at the moment and that there are more forces at play.

Honestly, I am sorry you feel that I was harassing you by sharing the "sexual degeneracy" that was a very small part of my life for an experimental little while. I was aiming to minimize the greater general tribalism against "different" people that many people like to ridicule. My so-called harassments were only ever responses to you responses that you could have ignored - thus easily stopping the "harassment" cycle. I could have stopped sooner too, and for that I am sorry. For the most part I thought you were getting a kick out of the tit for tat.

The maternal antibody failure is the one that has me dead set against my girls getting vaccinated. I want my grandchildren to have that evolved level of protection.

So when my partner freaked out about measles exposure, I was instead happy, because they need contact with wild-type to build resistance.

And with a good immune system, good nutrition and plenty of A &C vits, many kids can develop immunity without ever showing symptoms.

But babies? Half an immune system, they are FUCKED unless their mothers provide mABs.

Interestingly, in NZ now,, babies are given Immunoglobulins for the specific strain of measles in an outbreak, formerly a treatment (and the right treatment, IMO) reserved for the rich

Nonsense. Did you even attend a highschool physics class? Temperature is energy. It does not matter if the temperature of each water droplet changes because however it changes is a reflection of the temperatures in its surrounding environment. Each droplet of water experiences its own temperature changes and each one makes a tiny contribution to the temperature of the lake. That is all part of how the final temperature of the water that leaves the dam is acheived and how it has been acheived for over 80 years.

Climate Change - An Alternate Method of Analysis by raven9 in science

[–]Otacon 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Individual droplets of rain will change temp as they fall and when the rain falls into the lake and mixes with it, it will match the temp of the lake. The dam itself also will have a temperature, and as the water goes through the dam and interacts with it they will exchange heat. So the temp of water at the hoover dam is meaningless

That's interesting to watch bro. It's some of the worst surfing I've ever seen. This is a bee surfing on a paddle board.

It looked like the wings were actually drawing the water up and then moving the wings forward. Then pressing back on the wave to propel themselves forward.
Like doing the butterfly stroke on the elevated water.

This is could be the same basic mechanics/principle behind bees actual flight.
The actual mechanism that produces lift is still debated.

It's really cool to watch.

I have a PC front panel that broke yesterday, too, with a chip that seems less-than-ideal for repair, and with no replacement parts off-the-shelf. Maybe I can solder it anyway, or support will have a replacement.

How about buying less instead of "buying green"? by therium in science

I agree, but why not both? You can buy less and also support companies that engage in ethical, sustainable practices.

Agreed. I save every scrap i can, i hate whne anything goes to waste. I also make stuff myself when I can.

Nothing really to do with the environment, I just hate the idea of waste on a fundamental level. Plus, it saves me money. As in, hundreds or thousands of dollars

It's a GM scam.

This guy believes in ghosts and vampires and E.T. and Bigfoot. Lives in a magical land of Sci-Fi bullshit that would give the writers of the SciFy channel a freaking Hard On.

He's coked up on adderall and way off his Schizophrenia meds. You just gotta kind of try not to make eye contact and move on.

"Science" managed to save 6/7 of the Challenger astronauts... (1:36)

Unsurprisingly, they've all moved on from NASA, and have all found work in the civilian sector.

The video mentions their current employers. Don't take my word for it, or the videos... Please do a quick Google search for each astronaut and decide what you believe for yourselves. :-)

Here's a more comprehensive version: When Astronauts Rise From The Dead

The link above is to 153news.net, which is awesome. I suggest downloading the video and saving it for future reference.
We're in the era of censorship, and all...

Bacon Grease as Engine OIl? Let's try it! by Optimus85 in science

[–]x0x7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

What I want to see is him do a mix. The bacon breaks down quickly and starts to loose viscosity which may not make it a good long term oil. Also it's too gummy at room temperature. But apparently it acts as a cleaner and leaves the internals more clean than engine oil does by 1000:1. So could you put just a bit in and get a cleaner engine?

Prior to 2008, tons of people in my neighborhood did this. There was an entire auto shop dedicated to converting and servicing these vehicles.

God it all smelled to high hell. But it also sorta smelled like a kitchen.

Human speech may have a universal transmission rate: 39 bits per second by magnora7 in science

" No matter how fast or slow, how simple or complex, each language gravitated toward an average rate of 39.15 bits per second..."

Well, yeah, that's exactly how averages work.

I read a great paper once about human information reception of about 7 "units". If you put units together as in letters in a word, or words in a sentence), then you can still only digest about 7 "units" at a time.

I have a hard copy of the paper. I can't think if the title, but I'll try to find a digital copy and link later.

The final sentence struck me:

“It really seems that the bottleneck is in putting the ideas together.”

Also thinking about how low a bitrate 39 bits per second is... it's maybe no wonder most animals haven't developed speech. It's a very subtle information gain.

I wonder how many bits per second come from body language and other non-verbal cues.

Also I wonder if it'd be possible to come up with a cell-phone encryption method that only uses 39 bits per second, if that's actually capable of representing human speech.

Yeah I did, I got Flemish and Frisian mixed up. I meant to say all those things about Frisian instead of Flemish, my bad.

Pretty sure you got Frysk and Flemish mixed up:

For English linguists, West Frisian is notable as being the most closely related language to English outside of Britain, the two being part of the Anglo-Frisian branch of the West Germanic family, and is therefore often considered to be "in-between" English and Dutch (Dutch itself is dubbed as being "in-between" English and German).

And back on topic, watched some more of his videos and it's rather semi-interesting and semi-relaxing, perfect for split-screening it with browsing the web.
