Mini TestTube Blood Sample Necklace

Mini TestTube Blood Sample Necklace

This necklace charm by SelfRescuingPrincess looks like it used the same necklace base as the ones that you get from street vendors who will write your name on a piece of rice. It’s pretty cool and it’s not exactly expensive. Perfect for the haematologist in your life.

DC Comic/Neil Degrasse Tyson Pin the Location of Krypton

If you want full details head over to Bad Astronomy but apparently this weeks issue of Action Comics Superman #14 pins Krypton as Orbiting LHS 2520 a Red Dwarf star that is 27 light years away from us.

They apparently asked Neil Degrasse Tyson to suggest a star that would fit the location of Krypton and he chose that one.

Also I’ve not read Superman in quite some time but what the hell is going on with his costume in that image?

Here is an image of the star that Krypton orbits:

Appreciating Science

Science is Fascinating

This tickled my fancy, I saw a rant the other day about the number of people proclaiming they “Fucking Love Science” when what they really like is catchy quoted by Neil Degrasse Tyson, and atheist views. That isn’t science, science is working hard to gather data to prove something.

I’m Doing This The Next Time I Have To Sign An Official Document…

In fact I might change my official signature to be a sine wave. The really funny thing is that they are signing the using a “wave form” get it “wave” “form”! No? not actually funny I guess not.

You probably also don’t find it funny that they are signing up to play Laser Tag and lasers being light are constituted of a wave form. Still not funny? I guess I’ll show myself out…

Geology Cake

"Geology" Cake

This cake by Kholla showing the different geological layers was based on a Threadless T-Shirt. I like it I’d eat it…

The same person also made this lovely steak cake also based on a Threadless T-Shirt, my two favourite things, meat and cake wrapped into one!

New Element Discovered – Governmentium

I saw this on a couple of peoples FaceBook profiles and had to share it. Apparently it’s quite an old joke and a variant of it referenced Administradium

The LHC Project at Cerne has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element is Governmentium (Gv). It has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lefton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons or protons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction normally taking less than a second to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay but instead undergoes a reorganisation in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons. All of the money is consumed in the exchange, and no other byproducts are produced.
