Hopefully you're talking about online stuff because you'd be in serious trouble if you can find your dick. Not weird and/or stupid you say??? Well that's what YOU think. lol

Found this little clip about not sleeping for 2 weeks and so true that at 3 days, you hallucinante. My favorite part of the no sleep process, my record is 63 hours but was freaking time I hit the bag lemme tell you. Hahaha

Pretty nice stuff and article.

Damn man, they are up to some freaking weird but insanely cool stuff the buddies over there at NASA. Woah.

WHAT???
Damn government. We'll have Hubble and every other one but no data or picts collected. Furiously stupid.

SPACE TRAVEL IS THE ONLY HOPE FOR THE HUMAN RACE'S SURVIVAL IDIOTS!!!

Spend more money on War you assholes... Grrr...

Damn sometimes I sure wish I was a plant.

Or well thinking about it good, no I don't wanna be a vegetable yet.
Still got too much cells to kill before that. lol

Yep, our gov't shutdown yesterday (first time in seventeen years - or around that number) because Congress couldn't agree on a continuing resolution for the next fiscal year. I won't weigh in politically on it because, well, this is a science thread. big_smile Yet I have my opinions, as do most of us.

Meanwhile, here's a pretty Super-Earth with a plasma-water atmosphere: http://www.space.com/23028-super-earth- … 3012631694

Sad that Science equals Politics. Ah well, whatever anyways...

But that planet is oh so cool.

Hey Punk & Creetch-
9PM US Eastern time start, new Into the Wormhole and How the Earth Works.  On the Science Channel.
Wormhole episode is 'Resurrection,' and Works is 'Can Krakatoa Stop Time?'

Oh very cool. Thanks for the heads up dear Ape.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

I think they did a ''through the wormhole'' about free will.  I read Sam Harris' essay on it and now I'm reading a book about how (mechanically/chemically) the brain formulates beliefs and then validates them as truths...

So yeah...the biological illusion of free will and the physiology of belief...that's what I'm looking into this week

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

@Azzy, thanks for the heads up, but unfortunately I don't have the Science Channel as apart of my family's TV package. Wish we did.

@JackBurton, that sounds fascinating. That's worth some googling/checking out on my part as well. Perhaps I can hunt down the Sam Harris article online somewhere.

Scientists take a quieter step closer to first practical quantum computer: http://phys.org/news/2013-10-scientists … antum.html

What truly interests me about quantum computers though are the possible functions that they would be committed too. What kind of things would it be able to do? And with what near-impossible speed and efficiency? I honestly don't see a QC being brought into the average family household even a hundred years from now...not unless we are all brilliant scientists in the future (wouldn't that be awesome).

I wish I was better with math cause I would totally be a quantum physicist.

My hubby and I watched the Through the Wormhole series a couple of months ago, and I was completely blown away in one segment where two guys entangled the atoms of quarters in such a way that when one quarter was flipped and landed on heads the other would turn up tails, and vice versa. Every singe time. They completely removed randomness from the equation.

That's a pretty big deal in my mind. For years now scientists have been claiming that reality is random on the quantum level. I was never convinced, and I think this experiment kind of proves that it's not. It's only our lack of understanding that makes it seem that way. I firmly believe that there is order to everything in the universe, and that nothing happens by accident. Maybe we really are living in some vast, universal computer simulation....

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

We're all machines. Just look how much the ones we build are insanely wild.
So in some way Quantum Physics are just a bunch of binary zeros and ones put together. Yup, we're Computers. Some better than others like in real life.

Thing is what we can't understand makes it even more amazing when we finally do.

Like today I've seen that NASA & ESA peeps are stumbled by a recent discovery. H3LL, happens EVERY DAMN DAY!!! So still lotsa stuff to believe in and to understand.

And it's very fine with me. I love to discover. When I'll be old, I'll be a Spaceship Pilot. Hahaha

They should listen to what my friends the Black Holes are saying. They're the SUMMUM of Quantumness. big_smile

But I hate Maths so I could NEVER be good with all that. Luckily, I'd be a MAD scientist. lol

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Please don't get me started on how quantum physics and the human brain is not binary.

Does this look binary?
