What do voodoo dolls, cannibal diets, roller coasters, and spit all have in common (well, possibly quite a lot if you think about it, but please don’t)? They are all research subjects of Ig Nobel-prize winning studies announced last night at the 28th-annual ceremony at Harvard University.
Statues of politicians debating global warming.
OMG. Are these warmist kooks actually serious? They are about as scientific as those who think doing a rain dance or having a liberal sacrifice will make it rain or whatever. This is as bad as a past president who once claimed he could lower the ocean levels.
Global warming is the opiate of the gullible.

What you are seeing is the latest photographic reworking of what the "Lander Philae" eyes saw before they went out. And yes, you are seeing the ground of a color comet! It is November 12, 2014: after 7 hours of descent the little robot falls on the surface of the 67P, going to get stuck in a crack between the rocks. He shoots some black and white photographs, and before completely downloading his batteries, he can send them to Rosetta, who turns them to us on Earth. Today those images have been reworked, colored and the mist has been added on them, which would see our eyes accustomed to the dark if we were in the middle of the cometary activity.
Around 75% of the volcanoes on Earth are found in the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area around the Pacific Ocean where tectonic plates meet 🌋
It's True: Alcohol Helps You Speak a Foreign Language Better | Time
OK, Solarians! Here is my personal question of the week. Imagine you're sitting in a train and suddenly somebody stands in front of you for - really true - 15 minutes like in the photo and talks to the people sitting there. I ask for comments in all directions. What would be going on in you? Would it bother you? Would you do something? What would you do?
Here’s what science has to say about your beard:
I have found the same myself,” says Helen O’Neill, a molecular biologist at University College London (UCL) who is speaking about gene editing at New Scientist Live this week. “People have come up to me after talks saying ‘when can we do this?’, presuming it is already in the clinic.

AS LONG AS HUMANS HAVE been alive, they’ve been concerned with the inevitabilities of aging. Today, there’s a universe of razor-specific creams and serums tailor-made for your skin. But back in 16th-century France, people, especially members of the nobility, tried to assuage wrinkles and age spots with a significantly deadlier substance: gold. One such member of the French court, Diane de Poitiers, drank a daily tonic of gold chloride mixed with diethyl ether. It likely killed her.
