    The Fifth Element Is Starting to Come True

    m1k3y:

    But as the iPhone becomes its own sort of Multipass, and those funny lopsided cigarettes Bruce Willis smokes in the movie become a real design, it’s interesting to see how Luc Besson’s legendary sci-fi movie was more prescient than we would’ve guessed in the 1990s.

    "Rodents left alone in a room with a man, or presented with a T-shirt worn by a man, had a sharp spike in the stress hormone corticosterone. And because the hormone acts as an analgesic, they also showed less response to pain. The rodents showed no such reaction to women; they were also less stressed when given a woman’s shirt together with a man’s."

    I’m going to just sit here and chuckle at all the people who didn’t check the source on this/realize what it was. :D

    Portraits in Infrared, Visible and Ultraviolet light
    — Nick Spiker

    The Melanin in the freckles absorbs UV-light very well, making them show up black in the photo. Same thing is going on with sunscreen. You may notice the eyes are darker in UV light at well, another protection mechanism to help prevent UV damage. Melanin doesn’t absorb Infrared wavelengths as much — and IR-light penetrates further into the skin than UV — so the freckles/imperfections will show up less when you select for only those wavelengths in the photo.

Photo: Frank and Louie the two-faced cat A Massachusetts cat with two faces has become the world’s longest surviving so called “janus” feline at 12 years of age. The cat, who is named Frank and Louie, has two mouths, two noses and three eyes. Frank and Louie have one brain, so the faces react in unison. (David Niles/Handout/Reuters)


But we still love you.

    physicsphysics:

    Love famous physicists? (of course you do!)

    Love classic rock?

    Love T-shirts?

    If you answered yes to any or all of these, you might want to check out where these designs are for sale at Monsters of Grok. 

    If only for the Tesla/Edison
