Wow, what a piece of shiat article. Literally everything they siad was a new discovery I learned in comparative vertebrate anatomy 20+ years ago. Just because this author doesn't know shiat about sharks doesn't meam someone else doesn't.

They can both smell the presence of blood in water with concentrations as small as one in a million?

I'm not going to read that article.  But as someone who once stood in Ben Franklin's chemistry lab, I can say with certainty that neither sharks, nor Nikolai, were there.

As a scientist who works with Tesla-style experiments all the time, I can say that they won't let me test, or show people, how I think he did many of his most-interesting tricks.

I am confident that I can do all of them.  I'll need to run some tests to ensure I get it right, and things are going to explode and die in the process. For sure.

So ... I'll just build sensors for automated cars instead.  We are all going to die screaming, like I did.

"It appears these spiral-shaped organs slow the movement of food and direct it downward through the gut, relying on gravity in addition to peristalsis, the rhythmic contraction of the gut's smooth muscle. Its function resembles the one-way valve designed by Nikola Tesla more than a century ago that allows fluid to flow in one direction, without backflow or assistance from any moving parts."

So it's not like a tesla valve?

Edison screwed them over?
