Women talk three times as much as men

its gets even scarier It is something one half of the population has long suspected - and the other half always vocally denied Women really do talk more than men In fact, women talk almost three times as much as men, with the average woman chalking up 20,000 words in a day - 13,000 more than the average man Women also speak more quickly, devote more brainpower to chit-chat - and [b]actually get a buzz out of hearing their own voices[/b], a new book suggests http://wwwdaily

Can a human survive in the vacuum of space

Suprisingly Yes, for about 2 minutes Facinating article that one day may see idiots daring to run naked from airlock to airlock on the moon http://wwwdamninterestingcom/p=741 For about ten full seconds– a long time to be loitering in space without protection– an average human would be rather uncomfortable, but they would still have their wits about them Depending on the nature of the decompression, this may give a victim sufficient time to take measures to s

Science forecast - what will happen in the next 50 years?

Some brilliant minds discuss their theories Chances are that no one will pick the right answer, but its interesting anyway My bets from the list large that it is Chris McKay - Alien life A "second genesis" of life! In the next 50 years we may find evidence of alien life frozen in the ancient Martian permafrost, perhaps dead but biochemically preserved Me - I predict that we will find the remains of life on Mars, but nothing living, also that space will be empty and ste

Human homing abilities

Turns out we all possess a small bit of Magnetite that allows us to orientate North The next evolutionary step will be to have some that will tell where you parked the car Some years ago scientists at CALTECH California Institute of Technology in Pasadena discovered that humans possess a tiny, shiny crystal of magnetite in the ethmoid bone, located between your eyes, just behind the nose Magnetite is a magnetic mineral also possessed by homing pigeons, migratory salmon, dolphins, hone

Saliva is a powerful painkiller

I think nature knew this all along, dogs lick their wounds, people made poultices from chewing bread and sticking it on cuts Natural healing is being found out by science Saliva from humans has yielded a natural painkiller up to six times more powerful than morphine, researchers say The substance, dubbed opiorphin, may spawn a new generation of natural painkillers that relieve pain as well as morphine but without the addictive and psychological side effects of the traditional drug

Will chemical poisoning create an underclass of humanity never seen before?

Scuba deep rebreathing gear commercially available

This for our resident scuba enthusiast : Looks like the new technology is moving on fast An interesting review of rebreathing scuba equipment Open circuit scuba equipment is robust, reliable, and inexpensive But it has some significant disadvantages First, most of the oxygen is wasted Inhaled air is about 21% oxygen When you exhale, it's still about 15-16% oxygen, but all that oxygen is blown out into the ocean Second, those bubbles are noisy, scaring fish and reminding you wit

The worlds biggest hole

The gaint hole is actually a diamond mine in Eastern Siberia near the town Mirna It is 525 meters deep and 125 km in the diameter This is amazing, I wonder what happens when they get to the bottom as it is like an inverted cone shape Eventually it will scrwe itself into a point That red arrow on the right is pointing to a giant dump truck on the road From [url=http://wwwsreedharacom/2006/07/25/the-biggest-hole-in-the-world-great-photos/]Sreedharacom[/url] for more pics

Japanese Researchers Find Dolphin With 'Remains of Legs'

Japanese find a bottlenose dolphin with a second set of fins near the tail and secular scientists conclude that this is living proof that dolphins began on land and transitioned to the sea Of course, they don't bother explaining the nagging little details such as how the transitioning animals can survive during the time it has useless limbs and equally useless fins, but that is beside the point Just believe that we all evolved from chaos and random chance!

Anyone seen this strange vehicle before?

BoingBoing are calling this a robot vehicle However it just looks more like a personal transport machine It certinaly doesn't look very comfortable, nor stable! http://wwwboingboingnet/2006/10/30/cool_robot_vehicle_thtml Just outside Harajuku station today I saw the craziest/funniest/most dumbfounding thing I've seen in Japan to date The machine containing this man was fully mobile and powerful enough to get up and down the curbs with ease, not to mention immaculately put together

Vegetables keep your brain young

Lets hear it for vegetables! They keep you young and thinking On measures of mental sharpness, older people who ate more than two servings of vegetables daily appeared about five years younger at the end of the six-year study than those who ate few or no vegetables The research in almost 2,000 Chicago-area men and women doesn't prove that vegetables reduce mental decline, but it adds to mounting evidence pointing in that direction The findings also echo previous research in women only

Seti make a major announcement

I think Strange how this hasn't been publicised more [quote]Editor's update: For all of you out there who have been waving your arms around and speculating, this is not an announcement about finding a signal from ETs, the face on Mars, or anything else It is far more mundane Details of the announcement were released - under press embargo - to reporters last week A press release about the announcement will be issued on Tuesday by the SETI Institute[/quote] http://wwwspacerefcom
