Re: Possible neuroscience question

I was actually hoping for an answer more related to brain function/layout so I asked for neuroscience. I personally don't take much stock in psychology/psychiatry, but that's all for another thread.

Re: "Still Raw" Discussion

The White Horse Dialogue as it applies to Pluto Dwarf planet is just a term used to describe heavenly bodies that fit most of the requirements of being a planet. The difference here is that dwarf planets lack the gravity to clear the space around them and often take on irregular orbits. Due to the ...

Possible cognitive psychology question

I know this sounds like spam, but I'm serious about this and want a serious answer. A while ago, I came upon an interesting e-mail posted on the internet. I'm sure that many of you have heard of this. I have one important question. Why does this work? Can anybody tell me why you think of that vegeta...

Re: Amusing answers to tests

d's philosophy exam (or maybe it was just a joke question from his teacher) there was a essay question (for half the exam) that went: Topic D: Free Will and Determinacy Essay Question: Is it possible for you to choose not to answer this question? My answers are: 1) Complete another essay half-arsed...

Re: Favorite home experiments

Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if they threw explosives in there with it. Brainiac frequently does things to create results that they assume mimic what they would get normally. Most prominent on the list is the sodium fiasco.

Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

I don't mind furries, its just another fetish, but what really creeps me out are the otherkins (which are the insane part of furry fandom, according to the always awesome TV Tropes) , people who believe they are actually animals. It's a little more complicated than you put it. These people rarely s...

Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

Hm.. from what I heard from a furry convention, it wasn't a place you would take your kids! Though I admit that is second-hand info. What you hear depends a lot on where you hear it from. CSI is not a good source, to name one. :P @SpotWeld: You referenced the same article I was going to direct him ...

Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

Furries are creepy as hell. But that's not why they bother me. It's how darn vocal they are (as mentioned above). Seriously, are there yearly conventions held for any other kind of fetish? (Not counting general "fetish balls") There are occasional S&M conventions. I suppose you could ...

Re: Favorite home experiments

A couple of fun microwave experiments people left out: 1) Wad up some tin foil and put it in the microwave. This creates a nice light show due to stored up current in the foil. Also, it creates some pretty nasty smelling fumes, so do it in a well-ventilated area. This works with essentially any meta...
