They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing.

Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time
Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell.
ALL OF IT.
IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS

Food colouring in corn syrup. Watch as they rotate it 5 times one way and then 5 times back.
Your mind is now blown.
This is an example of the strange things that happen in fluids with low Reynold’s number. Reynold’s number is a ratio of the inertial forces and the viscous forces in the fluid. When the viscosity is high and the inertial forces are low fluids behave very differently to the way we are used to. Remember that next time you are trying to swim in honey.

I giffed the original video for your viewing ease. Enjoy.

GUYS

THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF SUGARS:

GLUCOSE AND FRUCTOSE

THEY BOTH HAVE THE CHEMICAL EQUATION OF C6H1206

BUT THEY FUCKING TASTE DIFFERENT

WHY? YOU ASK?

WELL ITS RIGHT THERE- BECAUSE THE EQUAL SIGN (OR DOUBLE BOND BETWEEN THE OXYGEN AND THE CARBON) IS BONDED IN A DIFFERENT SECTION, IT TASTES DIFFERENT.

YOUR TONGUE IS SO FUCKING SENSITIVE IT CAN TASTE DIFFERERENT THINGS

ON

A

FUCKING

MOLECULAR LEVEL

IF THATS NOT THE TIGHTEST SHIT GET THE FUCK OUTTA MY FACE

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Coffee

Are you addicted to your morning cup of coffee? Though caffeine takes about 15 to 20 minutes to kick in, its effects can last up to 14 hours, depending on the person. No wonder coffee is so addictive!

Of course, different coffees contain different amounts of caffeine, but contrary to what many may believe, light roasts tend to contain more caffeine than dark roasts. It should also be noted that decaf does not mean the coffee contains zero caffeine.

Surprisingly, beyond coffee and tea there are 60 plants that contain caffeine. 90% of the world uses caffeine in some form or another. Be careful not to take in too much caffeine, as 10-20 grams is considered a lethal dose. That’s the equivalent of drinking 4.69 gallons of coffee. They say, after all, that what doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger though, or at least will you keep you up forever!

Finally! A black hole that you can visit and survive!
Want a trip through a black hole without having to experience that pesky death? You’re in luck. There’s a special kind of black hole that’s not just survivable, but might get you to another time, or another universe.
Black holes are, traditionally, the scariest things in the universe. Huge, mysterious, inescapable, they wander through the universe and eat everything that gets too close. “Too close” is defined by their event horizon. This is the point at which they go dark, because it requires so much energy to escape them that not even light can get away. Since not even a photon can cross the barrier, no event that happens inside the horizon can ever have an effect on people outside.
Unless, something very odd was going on in the center of the black hole. Most black holes spin - this is something that was discovered way back in the 1960s by physicist Roy Kerr. It wasn’t exactly a shock, because most of the material that collapses into a black hole was already spinning. Sometimes, however, the spin on Kerr black holes goes a little above and beyond. Ever spun a glass of water, or soda bottle, so that the liquid inside swirls? Sometimes, if you spin it enough, the liquid actually parts, leaving a clear center and a spinning ring of water around it. The same kind of thing can happen in Kerr black holes. Instead of a singularity at the center, there’s a ring. And you can go through the open portion of that ring without touching the gravitational crush.
What’s on the other side? A lot of people have wondered. Some people think that these kind of black holes might be our key to time travel. They might be wormholes that let us hop between different points of the universe. Or they might be portals to different universes entirely. First we’ll have to find a few, and then we’ll need a few volunteers to go through. Preferably ones that haven’t seen Event Horizon.

Chemists Work to Make Fashion GreenerA reagent capable of removing color left in the waste water used in the textile industry is an improvement, but choosing quality dyes would lead to less pollution all together.The European fashion industry is a huge consumer of fresh water. Estimates point to 600 million cubic meter of fresh water being consumed yearly in Europe by the textile and clothing industry; not a negligible amount. To reduce the water consumption and the colored mass effluent, researchers have developed a flocculating agent. Called TEXAFLOK DCL 41, it is able to separate and remove the dyes from the water. It is a highly viscous liquid, which works by reacting with dyestuffs and forming precipitates, leaving a small volume of sludge. This sludge can be then destroyed in the waste waters treatment plants.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/08/chemists-work-make-fashion-greener

Well, once again I’m having fun with photoshop and science! Which one do you like the most?

Clearly the answer is BIOLOGY

There is no argument. These are not the droids you’re looking for.
