Nope. There's even some cool experiments involving magnetic manipulation of the brain. Check out the God Helmet (of course, there's some controversy over this one and it looks like sketchy science, but I think it still demonstrates that EM fields can have biological effects).
That's much better than the router I got from my ISP! Where do I sign up?
They later found that a stopwatch placed inside the box ran for about 1300 times longer than the time elapsed outside the box.
Zothecula writes "In a study that could eventually restore movement to humans' paralyzed limbs, researchers at California's Stanford University have used light to induce muscle contractions in mice. A gene derived from algae was inserted into the mice, encoding a light-sensitive protein which adhered to their nerve cell surfaces. Scientists then placed an 'optical cuff' lined with tiny, inwards-facing LEDs around the mice's sciatic nerves. By penetrating those nerves with brief, high-intensity bursts of blue light, they were able to produce muscle contractions similar to those that would occur naturally. The technology is called 'optogenetics.'"
I went to Japan a couple years ago and did quite a bit of cycling around Tsukuba. Pocari Sweat is like their Gatorade. It tastes fine at first, but the more you drink it, the more it actually tastes like sweat. By the end of a long day, you might as well be ringing out your shirt.
Windmills do not work that way! Good night!
Good thing, too. If you touch it, it will drop your calls.
Actually, the pace of the heart is set by the SA node. The brainstem and other factors can make the heart beat faster or slower in response to stress, but the heart paces itself.
And we had to escape gravity wells both ways!
Twitter isn't the only form of electronic communication. It is, however, the most asinine and informal. I wouldn't want the news of my upcoming demise originating from the same site responsible for informing millions that Lance Armstrong woke up and is preparing a delicious sandwich.
The IT department is required to have SCUBA certification for regular maintenance.
Oh great. Next you're going to tell me that there won't be any jetpacks, flying cars, or invisibility cloaks.
... Although, if TFA is to be believed, it won't appear to be.
Not at your local library, if you live in New York.
That's pretty far away, and radiation strength decays with an inverse square relationship to distance. I'd like to think we're safe.
