  • The Military Has a Plan In Event of the Zombie Apocalypse

    Posted Thursday, June 5th, 2014 02:07 pm GMT -4

    If you’re like me, you probably spend a serious amount of time thinking about how an actual zombie apocalypse would transpire. Other people may dismiss your endless rumination as nothing more than the needless musings of a bored blogger. However, little do they know that the people who run and protect our fine country have […]

  • TV Review: ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey – The World Set Free’

    Posted Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4

    ‘Cosmos’ holds no punches this week with “The World Set Free”, and it spends the better part of forty minutes explaining how climate change happened, why humans are the cause of it, and the detrimental side effects of the waste products of our society. That’s right. Climate change is a thing and humans caused it. […]

    Special wasps native to Thailand have finally been given a name and their title is inspired from the Harry Potter universe. After holding a vote at Berlin’s Natural History Museum, visitors chose the name Ampulex Dementor.

  • 3 New Clips Analyzing Tom Cruise’s Exo-Suit From ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’

    Posted Wednesday, May 21st, 2014 07:42 pm GMT -4

    Many would reference a colorful film starring Bill Murray to describe the plotline of Tom Cruise’s new film; ‘Edge of Tomorrow,’ but being a total sci-fi geek, and having recently re-watched ‘Stargate SG-1,’ I find myself comparing the resetting of Cruise’s character to the episode ‘Window of Opportunity’ in which Jack O’Neil and Teal’c find themselves […]

  • TV Review: ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey – The Immortals’

    Posted Monday, May 19th, 2014 08:36 pm GMT -4

    “The Immortals” is the best episode in ‘Cosmos’ we have seen since the early episodes. Told in a very human perspective, “The Immortals” seeks to answer difficult scientific questions with all the awe, wonder, and dread that the cosmos can offer us. It starts in a very Joseph Campbell style ( a la “A Hero […]

    Scientists at the Scripps Research Institute have successfully engineered an organism with alien DNA — that is, DNA with bases that do not exist anywhere on Earth… yet. In the genes of every organism, DNA, in the form of a double helix, is bonded together with four bases, adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and […]

    Last week, scientist Stephen Hawking warned everyone about the dangers of artificial intelligence. For Hawking, AI is no laughing matter. Sure, we all joke around about the impending doom that can result from AI. I have an ongoing inside joke with roomba that it is inherently evil and will one day destroy me (but also […]

    NASA scientists have found another Earth-like planet and this one seems to be the most habitable. Maybe.

  • TV Review: ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: Sisters Of The Sun’

    Posted Monday, April 28th, 2014 08:24 pm GMT -4

    If you like stars, as I do, this episode is not to be missed. However, if you are also afraid of the end of the universe, even though it will happen well after you actually kick it, you may want to rethink that. For me, this episode brought back all the nightmares of childhood brought […]

    It’s amazing what 3D printers can do. From creating food to toys, it makes sense the next evolution of 3D printers would allow scientists to create a human organ.
