Adam Savage dipping his fingers into a pot of molten lead. Immediately prior to submerging his fingers in the lead, he wet them with water, which will form a thin protective layer of water vapor on contact with the lead, which was heated to 850 degrees Fahrenheit. This is known as the Leidenfrost effect.
Peek Behind-the-scenes at Tennessee Aquarium’s Baby Stingrays!
A new Haller’s Round Stingray arrived at the Tennessee Aquarium with a surprise of her own to share: she gave birth to a litter of five on October 21, soon after her arrival. Each baby measures about three inches (7.6 cm), minus the tail, and could grow to be slightly larger than 12 inches (30 cm) in disk size. Born fully developed, the babies are immediately able to swim and require no parental care.
I love giving advice to young, aspiring voice actors!
wow this is so rude?
It’s amazing to me that she has any fans left. Like this is not just rude it’s just showing how ungrateful she is to people. Also like if this annoys you so much why not just ignore it? And if you’re going to reply some rude ass reply then why fucking screenshot it and out it on your blog? Brag about being an asshole? Like her image of being “cool” is like what bratty middle schoolers graders think is too lol. Sooooo cooollll
One of the greatest promises of 3-D printing is that we’ll one day be able to print organs on-demand. Need a new liver? There it is, at the push of a button.
Anticipating that future, scientists from the University of Wollongong in Australia have created the BioPen, a tool that lets physicians more or less draw new bones on peoplethrough 3-D printing. The pen is loaded with so-called “stem cell ink,” a batch of human cells that can form new bone. Another second substance, a polymer, then seals the area so the stem cells can do their work in peace. You can see why this is promising: if someone loses parts of bone in an accident, a tool like this pen could apply a fix directly to the problem area.
We’ve seen 3-D printed bones before, actually, but this device could give a little more precision. It’s yet to undergo clinical testing, so it still may be a while before it hits the market, but if and when it does, it’ll have some company.
"When Karl Urban introduced himself as Leonard McCoy and shook hands with Chris Pine, I burst into tears. That performance of his is so moving, so touching and so powerful as Doctor McCoy, that I think De Kelley would be smiling, and maybe in tears as well."
Universal constant: the guy who plays Bones is a super-sweet thoughtful nerd and sometimes his friends just have to cry about it a little.
