[Translation] Why does skin wrinkles in water

Some parts of human skin on which the hair grows, have a unique reaction to contact with water. Unlike the rest of the body, the skin on the fingers and toes, the palms and soles wrinkled after getting wet. Usually it is enough five minutes.

10 dangerous indoor plants. They need to know!!!

One of the most dangerous plants recognized as spurge. All parts of this plant contain a poisonous SAP that can be cause severe burning, skin blisters, and in case of contact with eyes, even temporary blindness.

[Translation] the Story of the supernova of fireworks in our Galaxy!

When I convinced myself that no star of this type has not previously been shining, I was in such perplexity because of the incident that began to doubt in their own eyes.

The formation of hydrocarbons

Evgeniy Philippov wrote:

…about the Genesis of hydrocarbons, methane and oil

“Vitaly fleed, head of the Department of physical chemistry, Moscow Institute of fine chemical technology. M. V. Lomonosov, doctor of chemical Sciences:“In several countries — the U.S., Japan, us Troitsk — built setup for simulation of the formation of hydrocarbons from carbonates and water in the presence of bivalent iron. If you mix calcium carbonate or magnesium with a solution of iron salts and heat at high pressure, as shown by our study, totally reliable formation of hydrocarbons. At least methane. This gas from beneath the Earth through channels in the rocks comes to the surface in the direction of motion undergoing various reactions to form heavier hydrocarbons. That is oil.”A friend writes: “I think everything is already understood that this is nonsense — what about the remains of ancient animals”

To fool the polygraph is very simple

Original taken from rovego in to Fool the polygraph is very simple

I have done this twice. And, for the first time quite by accident. The second time deliberately, using the studied method. Of course, methods of cheating the polygraph a secret, since it is used in inquisitive practice in the courts and in the idiotic telereklaame (for example, at Malakhov in “Let them talk”). The main purpose of the use of the polygraph is to get you to confess, because you will be Holy to believe that lie will not work. Of course I will.

American pensioners in Russia.

Yesterday looked “wildly exciting” battle between newly-minted Russian and Ngatha Monson, fighter from Cameroon. The latter is a second tier fighter, and never stars in the sky is not enough. It ended at 48 seconds, when Monson missed to the right just in turnips:

The intelligence of plants – fact or fiction?


Experiments on the discovery of “primary perception” of plants, such as, for example, which said in its article NR. Pushkin, in the case of recognition of their reproducibility, so changing a habitual picture of the world that is still not accepted by the society and is constantly criticized by skeptics.

Pri, as a rule, not criticize Pushkin’s experiments and the experiments of Baxter. Here, for example, write on one of the sites of skeptics:
“Well-known Soviet specialist in plant physiology I. Professor Gunnar told me that he in his laboratory tried to repeat the experiments of Baxter. Thus had much more sensitive equipment. Close of each other put the jugs with sunflower and Mimosa. The Mimosa added the device, and leaves of sunflower were cut with scissors. No response from the Mimosa, of course, was not followed. No sympathy for the troubled neighbour. But the technician stepped to the Mimosa — arrow immediately swung. Reaction?
— Any student who is familiar with the basics of physics, you know, says Gunnar, that it was not a miracle. Any physical body or system of bodies, is capable of conducting current, have a certain electrical capacity that varies depending on the mutual arrangement of these bodies, the Arrow of our galvanometer stood firm, and remained unchanged until the capacity of the system. But employee laboratory close to the instrument, and the distribution of electric charges in the system was broken…
If these basics Baxter? It is difficult to assume that the unknown…

How do you explain that many people believe in simple bakshtanovskaya fraud? The idea of “thinking”, “feeling” the plants like it. With plants many are dealing with in their own gardens, greenhouses, greenhouses. See what they respond to care, to care. Those people are close to having to give their wards consciousness. Quite small push coming from “science” to the humanizing of plants took place”

Data by Gunnar rebuttal show what a good scientist is different from genius. In the article “the Coffin of Mahomet” , I wrote that scientists “handle the curves” were unable even to repeat experiments with the hardware that made the Russian experimenter Podkletnov. More so, when it comes to living, thinking organisms? Vladimir Durov was such a skilled trainer that could fool scientists, even the great spondylitis, another person will, and a cat to housebreak, and German shepherd to obey the command “sit”. So based on this “experience” which we need to do what this dog is not able to execute simple commands, or is this “scientist”? Continue reading “The intelligence of plants – fact or fiction?”

Parallel worlds

Suha theory, my friend…
– Goethe

How went the science with real life and it is. bumping into the other day on a forum, discussing the explosion in the intensive care unit in Lugansk, Ukraine.

Discussed, for example, one version – non-observance of safety rules of handling oxygen cylinders. First version was proposed, the type that the cylinder could hit the oil, causing the cylinder and pulled.

Here’s how it responded Zakhmatov Vladimir, doctor of technical Sciences, expert on explosions: “… to have happened and the reaction followed by an explosion of such power, you must have a fairly large amount of organic combustible material. In simple terms, you need to pour at least a canister of engine oil to start such a reaction”.

This examination was given a “classical” scientist, could not be blast away any oil on the cylinder and to the point!

And here that write on the forum .

User bender: “As a scientist-rocket scientist-chemist.
Oxygen explodes very often. Sorry. The reasons can be many. Enough, for example, in the gearbox to get the oil drops (oil hands opened the valve) and the balloon explodes. Elementary”
