Additional stories on PopSci include 1) The positive effect of child-rearing on men. Studies show that contrary to popular belief, child-rearing may make men smarter; 2) A man-made, pure-white compound called Oxycyte carries oxygen 50 times as effectively as our own blood.

Yehey, New Stuff!

Friday, November 10, 2006
HurriQuake nail is a tricked-out nail designed to protect homes against damage caused by hurricanes and earthquakes. Engineered to target the common problems of other fasteners that tear apart in high winds and pull through plywood during seismic stresses, the device reportedly provides up to twice the resistance to these natural disasters.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania took brain images of five women while they spoke in tongues and found that their frontal lobes - the thinking, willful part of the brain through which people control what they do - were relatively quiet, as were the language centers. Studies suggest that people who speak in tongues rarely suffer from mental problems. A recent study of nearly 1,000 evangelical Christians in England found that those who engaged in the practice were more emotionally stable than those who did not.

About the Tongue

Friday, June 09, 2006
AUCTIONEER, n. The man who proclaims with a hammer that he has picked a pocket with his tongue.

BATTLE, n. A method of untying with the teeth of a political knot that would not yield to the tongue.

BELLADONNA, n. In Italian a beautiful lady; in English a deadly poison. A striking example of the essential identity of the two tongues.

LECTURER, n. One with his hand in your pocket, his tongue in your ear and his faith in your patience.

LOQUACITY, n. A disorder which renders the sufferer unable to curb his tongue when you wish to talk.

SLANG, n. The grunt of the human hog (_Pignoramus intolerabilis_) with an audible memory. The speech of one who utters with his tongue what he thinks with his ear, and feels the pride of a creator in accomplishing the feat of a parrot. A means (under Providence) of setting up as a wit without a capital of sense.

- The Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce, US author and satirist

That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man, If with his tongue he cannot win a woman. - Shakespeare

The slanderer and the assassin differ only in the weapon they use; with the one it is the dagger, with the other the tongue. The former is worse that the latter, for the last only kills the body, while the other murders the reputation. - Tyron Edwards

Conversation is an exercise of the mind; gossip is merely an exercise of the tongue. - author unknown

The tongue is like a sharp knife. It kills without drawing blood. - Buddha

A videogame in a urinal which helps maintain hygeine. Recessed into a urinal is a pressure-sensitive display screen. When the guest uses it, he triggers an interactive game, producing images and sound. The reduced size of the "target" improves restroom hygiene and saves on cleanings costs. It also makes a trip to the urinal "fun and games."

New Crustacean Discovered

Boing boing reports:
Scientists just announced the discovery of this strange new crustacean 900 miles south of Easter Island. According to a report in the journal of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, divers first found the creature last year at a depth of 7,540 feet.
Scientists said the animal, which they named Kiwa hirsuta, was so distinct from other species that they created a new family and genus for it. The animal is white and just shy of 6 inches long - about the size of a salad plate.
