Woman Partially Paralyzed by a Hickey
When people say after sex, "I can't move," they usually mean it as a compliment. But you should make sure. Because they might mean it literally. Like the woman in New Zealand who was partially paralyzed by a hickey. picked by suebe 8 months ago

 What's Behind the Swing the Baby Yoga?
What's Behind the Swing the Baby Yoga?
Baby yoga is a real phenomenon, and it isn't the drop-your-kids-off-while-you-do-real-yoga stuff of yuppie parenting. Instead, the practice of flipping and swinging newborns around by their limbs has gained traction in Russia and elsewhere. The goal? Creating more physically courageous and adept children.

Penguin Pain: Research Bands May Harm Wildlife
The metal bands which penguin researchers use to identify birds may have detrimental effects. The metal bands are attached to penguin flippers. But there is no one size-fits-all solution, seeing as individual penguins (and species) are just as varied as humans are. picked by NoPantsMan 9 months ago

Down the Hatch and Straight Into Medical History
From brain tissue to gallstones, doctors have long preserved specimens from their patients — sometimes as trophies, sometimes as teaching tools, sometimes as curiosities or even art. But Dr. Chevalier Jackson went much further than most, preserving more than 2,000 objects that people had swallowed or inhaled. picked by plurk 9 months ago

Laser cannon set to blind pirates
BAE Systems has demonstrated its new laser system, which can temporarily blind would-be attackers.

The system would prevent pirates from being able to aim their weapons at targets, BAE claims.

But further safety testing is needed before such a system could be commercially deployed. picked by zircon77777 9 months ago

Sub-zero therapy lets a chemo patient keep her hair
Breast cancer patient uses super-chilled headgear to try to retain her hair. The cap is chilled to -30° F, Katherine, who chewed ice during treatment to prevent chemo damage to the inside of her mouth, says the cold is "more like an ache than a shock, more like the flu than a cut.

 Clouds made of rock vapor once rained magma on ancient Earth
Clouds made of rock vapor once rained magma on ancient Earth
Because they shared a common atmosphere, the Earth and the Moon should share some of the same basic materials, but this does not appear to be the case. Instead, Moon rocks have way more iron and far less magnesium than their Earth counterparts, which does not fit the idea of a completely mixed common atmosphere. picked by zircon77777 9 months ago

 Bottled Water Vs. Tap Water
Bottled Water Vs. Tap Water
It is an unfortunate reality that naturally occurring fresh water is not naturally pure. Its normal pH-state is such that it absorbs minerals, both toxic and nutritious, in order to balance its acidity level. The new, milder pH-level, along with the accumulation of minerals, makes an excellent habitat for bacteria and microbes. It is these toxic minerals and microbes that present possible health ... read full post picked by Bornbad 9 months ago
