Brilliant Light Power Achieves Self-Sustaining Reaction

Pretty crazy update from BLP today (read more about them here). They refactored the Sun Cell to use dual liquid silver metal injectors for the electrodes, which solved the problem of the reaction being so strong that it was blowing holes through solid tungsten electrodes in just a few seconds. What’s pretty crazy is they…

Are Birth Control Pills Inadvertently Contributing To Male Obesity?

It’s a little known fact, but birth control pills have an effect on what women find to be attractive. This study found that women who discontinued birth control after getting married had a statistically significant decline in marriage satisfaction if their husband had a less attractive face, while the women who continued taking birth control had…

Eat As Much As You Want And Still Lose Weight!

While some moronic archaeologists assume the gladiators must…

The Impossible Burger Goes To Market

SuperMeat – Yeah, It’s A Worthy Title

Now you can eat real animal flesh and muscle tissue without having to kill an animal.

What will science think of next?

FYI, while I fully support this ethically created meat, I still wouldn’t recommend eating this stuff on a regular basis because it’s still going to kill you deader than a hammer.  It’s no different than eating saturated fat laden non-dairy ice cream or pouring a gallon of olive oil over your salad.  Fat and cholesterol will shorten your lifespan, there’s just no way around that.  At least not until they can re-engineer human physiology.
