It's not cannibalism.
So true! Just because we're both mammals, doesn't mean eating pigs is 'cannibalism.' I watched a letsplay of a game where you date pigeons (it's japanese, that should answer all your questions) over the summer and the fans were mad that the pigeons eat other birds.
I watched a debate between staff over whether animal research should be continued. I expected the anti-animal testing guys to talk about ethics but they kept saying "animals are different to people, so tests on them aren't applicable." This couldn't be more wrong but on googling it, I find almost all anti-animal research people say it. Many fundamental things about humans were discovered in plants, bacteria or fungi, including the control of cell division that goes wrong in cancer; if those things which aren't even animals can be used, how could animals not be? Drugs which work on flies and worms usually work the same on humans even though there are some differences in detail which mean we need to test on us (also animals) too. Oddly people who oppose tests never protest testing on worms and flies, despite the fact that's what most is done on (because it's cheaper and easier, mostly). It works because we share almost all our genes. / i said so much stuff to make up for people not saying things :I
Quiet around here, ishn't it?
Maybe the power went out on all the poster's computers simultaneously?
I hope everyone has been doing well. I'm doing my rare showing up to this forum of course.

Gravity also slows down time.
I hear time means something totally different on the atomic scale; I recently read about anexperiment suggesting it doesn't really exist down there and emerges from interactions between them, or something.
How fast you go changes how fast time is for you, now that is crazy!
A tragic figure of modern science. He was a celebrated scientist in his days who's legacy turned out to be not so great. In early 1920s while working for GM he discovered that lead in gasoline can prevent engine knocking. GM started producing leaded fuel, advertising it as superior to other fuels and gave majority of population in developed world lead poisoning.
Later Midgley began working on alternative to toxic and flammable refrigerant and successfully synthesised dichlorodifluoromethane, aka freon. 30 years after his death consequences of this discovery became apparent - ozone hole the size of Antarctica.
In 1940 he contracted polio. To help others lift him from his bed he developed a system of ropes and pulleys, which eventually killed him - he got entangled in the ropes and strangled.
Nowadays he is known as a man who "had more impact on the atmosphere than any other single organism in Earth's history."

You've gotta drive really, really fvcking fast.
Rondaem: I've recieved a second 45rpm spindle adapter for my old Zenith/Voice of Music turntable from a VoM specialist, since the first one I ordered didn't work. Turns out I really just need to fully service and lube the turntable. (Ha-Ha! Multiple entendre!)
Something else arrived yesterday, that I've only just been able to open today. There will be more on that later.
Dr. Who: The End of Time was on. I got so engrossed in it that I missed the new episode. Worst of all, there was a recording conflict with Dr. Who, American Horror Story, and South Park. South Park lost out. I'm gonna have to watch the new ep when it repeats at 11.
