Solar salamanders have algae in their cells
In 1888, a biologist called Henry Orr was collecting spotted salamander eggs from a small, swampy pool when he noticed that some of them were green. Now, more than 120 years later, scientists have found that this is due to algae that actually invade the cells of the growing embryo, becoming part of its body. picked by plurk 7 months ago

 The anti-nuclear lobby has misled us all
The anti-nuclear lobby has misled us all
For the last 25 years anti-nuclear campaigners have been racking up the figures for deaths and diseases caused by the Chernobyl disaster, and parading deformed babies like a medieval circus. They now claim 985,000 people have been killed by Chernobyl, and that it will continue to slaughter people for generations to come. These claims are false. picked by plurk 7 months ago

 What if you get sucked out of a plane?
What if you get sucked out of a plane?
Discovery News thought it would be a good idea to ask some expert what would happen if you get sucked out of a plane. If you get sucked out of a plane at 30,000 feet, you're pretty much going to be dead right away and there's nothing you can do about it. Want some gruesome details about how you'd die? Here's one pilot who survived. picked by suebe 8 months ago

 Chernobyl's Tragic Legacy
Chernobyl's Tragic Legacy
An intelligent, lively four-year-old with almost no lymphatic system, his limbs swollen into monstrous trunks; a toddler whose torso blossoms into a tumor that cannot be removed, since his kidneys are contained within it; a baby born with its brain outside its body; children slithering around the floor, wordless pack animals, groaning and rolling, eating from bowls like dogs. picked by zircon77777 8 months ago

I arranged an audience with the deity and got a photo of him. He even signed my cast. Why didn’t I give him something more permanent to autograph?! Oops! In case you’re wondering, his signature wasn’t all that great—a big G followed by squiggly lines and a small dot for a flourish. It’s a mess. picked by Bornbad 8 months ago
