Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    radiolab is ok, but I don't get all the fanaticism about them. That Creep song was pretty good, I guess.

    I wanted to but we drove by and there was literally a million people there and the kids were grumpy so I said fuck it.

    Your kids didn't want to see Bill Nye? Somebody needs to be taught that Science Rules.

    They are still too young. 23 months and 7 months.

    However, I can steal beer in the bottom of their stroller pretty easy.

    I tried to listen to Radiolab once, but the sound effects are fucking infuriating. And they drew out the story they were telling to make it about 5 times longer than it should have been.

    Seriously they are talking about it on Science Friday right now. Science Friday is a cool NPR show that comes on on...Fridays.

    http://www.sciencefriday.com/

    ira-headshotcrop.jpg

    Hosted by Ira Flatow, it is seriously the bomb diggity. I mean look at that guy. He is ready to talk about science and also maybe your mom's nice figure. The show covers lots of different subjects, but stays relatively relevant to current science news, which is really helpful.

    If you want to talk about lasers or atoms or also laser tweezers, that is also ok.

    Oh this is the thing at my university again! Awesome!

    Makes me laugh that all the comments on new sites about this here were all 'WOO YEAH NEW ZEALAND', but if you listen to Mikkel speak it's pretty obvious that is not a new zealand accent. We also generally get good things done here despite a lack of funding more than anything else.

    huh for some reason I just assumed that it was the magnets that did the work in particle accelerators, but that's completely wrong. Magnetic fields can't do work because they always act at right angles to the direction of motion of a charged particle, and work is Force in the direction of motion * Distance. Turns out they use oscillating electric fields to do it.

    English professors talking about all sorts of physics thingies on the YouTubes.

    Come to think of it, I may have landed there via the YouTube thread.... but it's still worthwhile!

    this new planet they discovered is pretty interesting! i'm curious about how a tidally locked planet would work if it had liquid water and shit, like what the weather would be like and, if there is complex forms of life, how they'd differ on the dark and light side.

    I'd think that most of the life would be centered around the band separating the light and dark sides, or at least the more developed (i.e. not unicellular) life. I mean I figure that otherwise it would be too hot or too cold all the time, and plants seem to like seasons and cycles and shit. Right?

    that seems like the logical conclusion, but of course with a planet in those kind of conditions constantly, i'd be willing to bet that life evolved to survive those extreme conditions on either side of the planet, not just the sort of twilit butterzone. after all, life has evolved on earth to suit some pretty fucking crazy conditions, like volcanic vents at the bottom of the ocean and such-like.
