Science Hilarious List of Science Jokes 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 12/3/2010 10:42:42 AM
Link goes to an amazing thread of science jokes.

I love the one about the 2 engineers talking about a new bike.

Engineer1: The greatest thing ever happened on the way to work this morning. A beautiful blonde cheerleader rode up to me on her bike, jumped off, took off all of her clothes and told me to take whatever I wanted so I wound up with this swell new bike.

Engineer2: The bike was a good choice, those cloths wouldn't have fit you anyway.

Science Ancient skeletal remains shed new light on evolution 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 4/10/2010 12:55:49 PM
"Scientists may have discovered a new branch on your family tree.

A team of researchers working in South Africa has unearthed what they believe are the remains of a previously unknown species predating modern humans. They recently discovered a couple of partial skeletons -- an adult female and a juvenile male -- that are nearly 2 million years old."

Science Why most weather predictions are bullsh!t 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 3/16/2010 10:40:02 AM
This article is a great summary of why most weather predictions are completely wrong. Case in point is this little gem:

..stations get their precipitation predictions correct about 85 percent of the time one day out and decline to about 73 percent seven days out.

On the surface, that would not seem too bad. But consider that if a meteorologist always predicted that it would never rain, they would be right 86.3 percent of the time.


Basically, most of the time, you're better off assuming it won't rain than ever listening to a weatherman.

Science The Known Universe 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 3/9/2010 12:52:15 PM
This video takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.

Science How Traffic Jams Happen embeded video link 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 3/3/2010 10:26:24 AM
This is a great video that shows for the first time a visible reason why traffic jams can and do happen for absolutely no reason whatsoever. One person not going the speed limit causes another to slam on their breaks and another and another and another until it jams up traffic at the back even though there is no real reason for the slow down.

This is AWESOME!  The implications for this are truly amazing.  It ranges from actual construction of lunar bases, to providing fuel to the theory that life truly does exist on other planets.

Science The Universe is retardedly huge. embeded video link 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 8/17/2009 4:55:03 PM
Step 1: Point Hubble Telescope at empty space.
Step 2: Leave it on for a while
Step 3: Discover thousands and thousands of galaxies BILLIONS of light years away from us.
Step 4: Realize each galaxy is as big as the Milky Way with 100 billion plus stars each.
Step 5: You are now retarded when you start to contemplate how big that number is.

Couple spends $155k to get a cloned version of their dead dog, and it is pretty much just like their old dog.

This is at the same time asinine and bad ass.

Science Darwin's Tree Idea was Wrong. 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 1/23/2009 11:41:16 AM
Instead of a tree structure of evolution it is more like a big messy ball of branches and shoots that sometimes grow together from other sides of the tree.  Pretty much picture an inbred redneck family tree and how it has lots of places where it doesn't fork or doubles back, but instead of mother marrying son or cousin marrying an uncle it is species interbreeding.

Horizontal Gene Transfer is the culprit here.

Science Our Universe might be a hologram 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars 1/16/2009 7:41:44 AM
Basically holograms can display a lot of information about a 3D object while only being 2D themselves. And because of this our Universe might be a hologram.

Warning: The article contains large amounts of WTF and nerdity.
