WxGuy1: WxGuy1: I guess it's paragraphing, but it's getting awfully close to full-on plagiarism. Paraphrase better, article writer.

Ugh. First, I meant "paraphrasing" not "paragraphing". Second, the article writer is with the same site that is sourced (or maybe even the same author), so I guess it's okay. I failed. Then again, there is such a thing as self-plagiarism.

you know, I had the same reaction, but just moved on ...
now that you followed through, I am glad that I was lazy

hitmanric: I noticed "Poop is brown" is highlighted as a link.

/ya I'm not clicking that, educational or not.

I clicked on it, no danger, just more educational info on poop and the various colours caused by various diseases. Eg did you know a blocked bile duct will mean your poop goes grey?

#11 is interesting. I could see basing a movie on that fact--maybe a big war between humans and machines. And the fall-out blocks out the sun, so the machines harness humans for energy. But they'd have to come up with some type of dream world to keep the humans' minds busy.

Yeah, that sounds like it could be a good movie.

But there should never be a sequel.

Bennie Crabtree: redsquid: Fark Rye For Many Whores: This would make sense if that is correct as humans who are given magnetic implants have been shown to have a much stronger magnetoception than humans without.

WTF am I reading, that makes less nosense at all.

Folks get tiny neodymium magnets implanted in a fingertip. They can 'feel' magnetic and electrical fields when the magnet vibrates. If I did wiring all day i'd consider it.

it seems like a terrible idea if you workplace includes arc welding.

Or if you work in the same building as an MRI machine.

Before I moved from the northern California coast to the high (6000ft) desert of central Nevada I was lucky to breath through even one nostril. Now most days I can breath through both at the same time.

12) The reason most people have a hard time tickling themselves is because the brain is constantly monitoring body movements and anticipating sensations, particularly touch sensations. When it is doing this, it is also actively discarding sensations that it deems unimportant

Thank god there's one type of self-administered touch sensation that the brain knows is "important" enough not to discard.
