Re: 1901: "Logical"

Yeah... I don't need a scientific study for every idea I have, I can have hunches, right? The problem is when I keep going by my hunch even though I am now aware that there are studies showing the OPOSITE. Yes? Otherwise how did anyone know ANYTHING before the scientific method was invented? This se...

Re: 1587: "Food Rule"

There's apparently a group of people who want to deal with the whole "well wild animals eat each other" thing in a different way than saying "ok we can eat them too now." They want to actually genetically engineer carnivores to be herbivores. http://www.treehugger.com/natural-sci...

Re: 0878: "Model Rail"

Wait no, if you lived on a Neutron Star, like the Cheela in Dragon's Egg by Robert Forward, you could make a model entirely out of neutrons, or maybe you could even make one out of quarks or strings, down to the Plank length. And nobody really knows what happens below the Plank length, am I right?

The implications of this ARE pretty cool, because they imply that every bit of phosphorous was replaced by arsenic. DNA with arsenic. ATA (adenosine triarsenate), arsenolipids, arsenolation. It's one thing to replace one of these components with arsenic, and use the rest of the cell's machinery to ...
