An ancient technique, revived in the 1970s and rapidly modernized since the days of disco, now promises to squeeze every last drop of THC from top-shelf strains, delivering near-narcotic highs that are orders of magnitudes cleaner than what even the most extravagant vaporizing percolator rig can produce. Welcome to wax.
Over the following weeks since the show’s premiere, many creationists effectively covered their ears, saying 'La, la, la! I can’t hear you!' or have attacked the content of the show only to highlight the fact that they didn’t understand it and were closed off to learning. Now, it has hit a breaking point with Young Earth Creationists actually demanding equal air time to provide the 'science' of divine creation. What would their show even look like? Thanks to the folks at Funny Or Die, we have an answer.
About 14.6 million years ago, a meteorite over half a mile wide smashed into the Earth, creating a massive crater of melted rock. Although temperatures there were as high as 36,000 degrees Fahrenheit, researchers have found that life took hold there soon after.
The Earth's magnetic field protects life on Earth, shielding it from damaging radiation and moderating our climate. So the idea that it could completely flip around, or collapse altogether, should cause us to worry, right? Well, yes and no.
A group of researchers discovered a dead nose-horned viper with a centipede's head sticking out of its ruptured abdomen. After a post-mortem, the scientists think it's possible that the centipede quite literally eviscerated the snake from the inside out.
The potential moon (nicknamed Peggy) is tiny, probably only about a kilometer (0.6 miles) across — really a moonlet — and is invisible in the Cassini pictures. However, its presence is betrayed by an odd clumping of material at the very edge of Saturn’s A ring, the outermost of Saturn’s main rings.
A team of Chinese scientists did an impossible-sounding thing. They created electricity simply by dragging a droplet of saltwater across a layer of graphene. No big fires, no greenhouse gases, no fuss. They created energy with just a miracle material and one of the most plentiful substances on Earth.
By recreating the setting from Aesop's Fable 'The crow and the pitcher', researchers have shown that corvids are not just capable of grasping that solid objects displace water, but more crucially, they seem to understand the causal relationship between the properties of such objects and their effectiveness.
Diamonds and coal are different colors because coal isn’t pure carbon. The stuff is loaded with impurities: hydrogen, sulfur, mercury, and more. There’s a reason you don’t want to live next door to a coal-fired power plant and that reason is all the nasty stuff that gets released when the carbon in coal burns.
During the Second World War, Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler were mortal enemies. Before that, however, the two future leaders fought a mere ten miles away from one another on the Great War's Western Front.
Addressing the Paleoanthropology Society in Calgary last week, Yoel Rak and Ella Been of Tel Aviv University made the case that the bones do not represent a transitional species but instead come from two different genera.
Determining levels of consciousness in people who have severe brain injury is notoriously hard. That task may become a little easier with the finding that brain scans can help doctors identify whether patients in a vegetative or minimally conscious state are likely to recover to some degree.
