    Stellar lifting, mining a star basically, sounds backwards “we’re going to make our fusion core last longer by removing some of its fuel, refining it, and using the contaminants to build stuff” but it works. In theory.

    I thought, until I was like, 15, that I was born with a tail. it was an extremely long con by my parents. They told me it when I was little, and it didn't come up enough that they had to recant.

    One of my uncles had a tail. Not like a proper monkey tail, sadly, but a horse-style tail of long flowing butt locks. When he was maybe 10 or 12 they finally dug around because something seemed to be growing there at the bottom of his spine and they discovered a mass with formed teeth inside it. Turned out to be a twin that never was.

    My guess was going to be a teratoma but this makes sense too.

    could he swish the horse tail? probably not, right?

    What is it with nature and having such a default for "yeah I'll put teeth here" it makes NO SENSE to me that teeth are so common in terratomas.

    From a cursory search of literature, teratomas with teeth actually don't seem to be all that common compared to teratomas composed of more basal cell types, I think they're just the ones that get all the press because gaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.

    Was gonna grab one of those videos where they take radio radio waves from the sun and convert them into audio, then replace the brrrrrr in your post with it as a joke. But it turns out brrrrr is actually what that sounds like.

    Apparently the question whether teratoma with highly developed tissue actually represent parasitic twins isn't fully resolved

    Screenwriters love that interpretation though

    Okay, slightly curly question for you, science thread.

    Say I have paired values, X and Y, for a couple hundred items. X and Y are both variables with limited ranges, i.e. they can be anywhere between 0.00 and 10.00.

    When I plot these paired values on a scatter plot, there's very low correlation between X and Y, but the graph appears to show that X is a very strong inverse predictor of the minimum possible Y value, such that X+Y is always at least 10. So, for example, if X=5.95, then 10.00>=Y>=4.05.

    My question is, is there a statistical test can I do to prove (or disprove) that this is a significant pattern?

    The key word is “meticulously”

    Vs “vigorously”

    The story I was told when learning the standard model was that the discoverers of quarks had to be talked out of naming them after ice cream flavours. I've never actually verified that, but I like the idea so much I'm never deviating from it.

    If I ever made a discovery and had to name like 100 things I'd give them all very scientific sounding Latin names except for one which I'd name something like the double dildo ass blaster.

    You could look at the frequency distribution of your X+Y and compare it against the the distribution curve you'd expect from two truly random values.

    The only thing on the side of the city I don't understand at a glance is how changing to electric heating is supposed to help much by itself. It's the most ineffective way to produce heat there is. Would have to check further where their power comes from.

    Here, have this article about blindsight, a condition best explained as blind people who can see things but are blind.
    One day, some psychologists placed Barry in a corridor full of obstacles like boxes and chairs. They took away his walking stick and told him to walk down the corridor. The result of this simple experiment would prove dramatic for our understanding of consciousness. Barry was able to navigate around the obstacles without tripping over a single one.

    Barry has blindsight, an extremely rare condition that is as paradoxical as it sounds. People with blindsight consistently deny awareness of items in front of them, but they are capable of amazing feats, which demonstrate that, in some sense, they must be able to see them.

    In another case, a man with blindsight (let’s call him Rick) was put in front of a screen and told to guess (from several options) what object was on the screen. Rick insisted that he didn’t know what was there and that he was just guessing, yet he was guessing with over 90% accuracy.
