I think it is inspired by Resident Evil 3's Freeze Rounds.

Now someone load PIBD fuse onto it.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Decades-old question: Is antibacterial soap safe?

They're looking at one particular ingredient and trying to determine whether the ingredient itself may cause health problems. That's one way to go about it, I suppose, but it overlooks the fact that having antibacterial agents in hand soaps for the average person is pointless. You're doing little more than breeding massive resistance against the antibiotic in the soap. The goal isn't to sterilize your hands (which you wouldn't want to do either, unless you're performing surgery), it's simply to lessen the bacterial load. As the article mentions, washing your hands for a longer period of time is more effective at removing bacteria than is the use of a soap laced with antibiotics.

Regardless of the FDA's findings of this agent's effects on human health, these types of soaps should be banned.

Depending to how you count them, to wash your hands is supposed to be a 8 or 9 step procedure.

Fascinating - just like humans, there is great discontent when unequal pay is given for the same task.

Science Finds Fountain of Youth Brain Region That Slows Down Aging:

"Scientists have for the first time found a region of the brain—a signaling pathway in
the hypothalamus—that can slow down or speed up the aging process in mice. Their
lives and youthful vigor were extended by about 20 percent by a combination of
blocking a protein complex with a distressingly long name (nuclear factor kappa-light-
chain-enhancer of activated B cells, or "evil magic") and injecting the brain with a
hormone ("good magic", or gonadotropin-releasing hormone [GnRH]) that is blocked
by that protein.

The long and short? Poke the brain, stay young like Aragorn or Halle Berry.

The hypothalamus controls functions like growth, reproduction, and metabolism, so it's
not an outlandish leap to think it could also regulate aging. It's not confirmed that this
function carries over to humans, but if it does, the results could be groundbreaking.
Injecting GnRH, for example, not only slowed physical aging, but cognitive decline as
well, by encouraging neuron regeneration. This would be great for degenerative
conditions like Alzheimers and dementia, or possibly for brain injuries suffered in sports."

Anyone heard of the weird "alien skeleton" thing that's been popping up on news sites and whatnot?

http://news.discovery.com/human/alie...ery-130430.htm

http://www.livescience.com/29173-ali...on-images.html

http://news.msn.com/rumors/rumor-tin...leton-is-human

Apparently, the DNA is 91% match to human or something, and tests shown that the... whatever it was lived for 6-8 years.

I'm skeptical, to say the least. How did it even survive at all, let alone 6-8 years?

Nature at work. If it died it is because the telomeres are too short or the cell structure is not stable enough - Mother Nature chucked the experiment out of the window and somewhere down the line, created us.

Meet The 'Liberator': Test-Firing The World's First Fully 3D-Printed Gun

Quote:
“Alright. One…two…”

Before “three” arrives, a shot reverberates across the overcast central Texas landscape. A tall, sandy blond engineer named John has just pulled a twenty-foot length of yellow string tied to a trigger, which has successfully fired the world’s first entirely 3D-printed gun for the very first time, rocketing a .380 caliber bullet into a berm of dirt and prairie brush.

Although I do not support the use of making such tools available for the less ethical users over the net, I do, for one, support this creation as a tool to make "anti-piracy laws" more laughable.

As Brad Plumer pointed out over at the Washington Post, it’s not that the E.U. necessarily has more evidence about the role that the chemicals might be playing in CCD. This is a classic case of policymaking by the precautionary principle. The pesticides are considered guilty until proven innocent, and so they’re preventively banned, even before the scientific case is rock solid. That’s not unusual for European environmental regulation, especially in regards to chemicals. In the U.S.it’s the reverse—before the federal government is likely to take the step of banning a class of pesticides, and pissing off the multi-billion dollar chemical industry, you’re likely to see a lot more science done.
So what we may get in Europe and the U.S. is a de facto field test of the real impact of neonicotinoids on CCD. In two years, if American bees are still dying and their European cousins are thriving, we might just have our answers. And if not, well, I hope you don’t like cashews, beets, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, chestnuts, watermelons, cucumber, fennel, strawberries, macadamia, mangoes, apricots, almonds or any of the other dozens of food crops pollinated by our hard-working, six-legged, unpaid farm workers.

Intelligent Robots Will Overtake Humans by 2100, Experts Say:

"The idea of superintelligent machines may sound like the plot of "The Terminator"
or "The Matrix," but many experts say the idea isn't far-fetched. Some even think
the singularity — the point at which artificial intelligence can match, and then
overtake, human smarts — might happen in just 16 years.

But nearly every computer scientist will have a different prediction for when and
how the singularity will happen."
