Climate scientists now suffering ‘pre-traumatic stress disorder’

http://twitter.com/#!/Mugsy4Fly/status/527618419714457601 Obviously a made-up mental disorder is the logical result of anxiety over made up science. This is reminiscent of the anxiety disorder liberals were suffering when they couldn’t accept that Al Gore had lost the election. That may have been the point of no return for many on the left’s sanity. Now crazy is the standard for Al Gore and his prophets of doom. Some climate scientists afflicted by "pre-traumatic stress disorder" b/c no one takes their research seriously. http://t.co/bzKXprl2Xn — Ryan Maue (@RyanMaue) October 29, 2014 […]

This New Wheelchair Technology Is Going To Be A Game Changer For The Disabled

Being wheelchair-bound is a huge burden for people who have physical limitations and disabilities. The sad truth is that not many places accommodate people in wheelchairs, and being bound to a chair keeps people from living their lives to the fullest. Traditional wheelchairs are cumbersome, and they can put a huge strain on people who have to use them every day. But this new invention — called the Ogo Wheelchair — combines the technology and the easy-to-use nature of Segways with traditional wheelchair design. It provides users […]

The People Who Track Santa On Christmas Also Track UFOs Around The Space Station

Many people may be familiar with the North American Aerospace Defensive Command (or NORAD) as the group who tracks Santa for us every Christmas Eve, but it seems when the holidays are over they are in the UFO-tracking business. YouTuber Streetcap1 posted a video from the International Space Station showing a weird streak flying into view on one of its cameras. He labeled it as a “fastwalker,” which is NORAD’s term for fast-moving, unidentified objects that cross the Earth’s orbit. Check it out below…just don’t blink! Here’s […]

He Sat On The Edge Of A Volcano And Did Something Totally Nuts

You’d think that people would generally avoid sitting next to volcanoes. After all, nothing about being burned alive sounds pleasant. Very few people enjoy lava, which is pretty understandable, since it could very easily kill you and everything you love. I think it’s fair to say that we share Anakin Skywalker’s thoughts on the molten stuff. Tumblr / You Were My Bother But this guy did something awesome while sitting near a volcano. He whipped out graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate so that he could make himself […]

7 Ways To Convince People That Evolution Is More Than Just A Theory

If you’re tired of arguing with people who don’t understand evolution, here’s the ammunition you need. 1) The fossil record. “The fossil record is incomplete! Where are the missing links?” ask creationists. Yes, the fossil record is “incomplete”. The only way it could be “complete” would be if literally every single living thing had been fossilised after it died. That doesn’t happen, because the process of fossilisation is incredibly unlikely, especially for land creatures.

How This Spa Cleans Your Feet Is The Freakiest Thing…And It Could Make You Sick

For most of us, it’s simply a matter of time until the stress of life drives us to the spa. Don’t laugh! More people do it regularly than you might think. But while you’re relaxing and having fun, just make sure that you understand the inherent risks of participating in certain spa treatments. I’m specifically talking about the exotic (and occasionally dangerous) things that go on in “fish spas.” No, a fish spa is not a spa for fish. It’s a little weirder than that. iStock The […]

These Incredible Caterpillars Prove How Cool Nature Really Is.

Butterflies were the inspiration behind artists, musicians, and authors for centuries. Similar to a phoenix rising from its ashes, the journey each butterfly undertakes during its metamorphosis into a beautiful creature is the perfect parallel to countless stories. Unlike the phoenix, there’s nothing fantasy about these fantastic transformations. Along with moths, these creatures can sometimes be more breathtaking while in their caterpillar state. These amazing photos show the vibrant colors and natural beauty found in such a small specimen. 1.) Io Moth Flickr Flickr 2.) Spicebush Swallowtail Flickr […]

It Looks Like Water, But If You Touched It, It Would Probably Make You Very Sick

Mercury, as we all know, doesn’t do great things to the human body. Enough exposure to the substance can cause some serious damage, which makes it all the more shocking that an artist in Barcelona decided to construct this breathtaking fountain. While it looks pretty normal at first, this thing spews out liquid mercury. (source: mercuremiro) That really is some fine engineering work. The fountain is fortunately housed behind some thick glass to prevent the fumes from killing passersby. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/mercury-fountain/
