Quizzically, it's all true!
 
Consumers have consistently distrusted the use of genetically modified organisms in their food, believing that they make food unsafe for consumption, although a majority of scientific evidence contradicts these views. Here are the common myths associated with GMOs and the facts that refute them

Ferofluid: Electric Liquid Metallica
 
Ferrofluids are liquids that become magnetized when a magnetic field is applied. They're made by suspending nanoparticles (particles only a few nanometers -- tens of atoms -- across) of magnetic materials, each coated with a substance that keeps it from clumping, in an organic solvent. When magnetized, they tend to form characteristic "hedgehog" shapes.

These were originally invented for rocket fuel: the idea was to mix these directly into liquid fuel, so that a magnetic field could pull them straight into the engine. That eliminates the mechanical pumps that are at the heart of liquid-fueled rockets, which (especially then) were the #1 source of problems. Today, they're used for all sorts of other applications: for example, they're used to create hermetic seals around rotating drive shafts, like the ones in your hard disk, since if you just magnetize the shaft a bit they'll stay in place even as things spin around. Using similar tricks, they're what keep the voice coils of your speaker cool.

Basically, you can find ferrofluids anywhere that it would be really useful to hold some liquid in a strange position as if by magic. 

And here is what happens if you take a screw, apply a magnetic field to it, and pour a ferrofluid down the top. It both lubricates the screw very precisely, and looks really neat.

You can learn more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrofluid .

What a great experience! If you have a small group, be sure to order the Seven Star. It's a TON of wonderful food, and everyone will have just what they want. BTW, be sure to sit in Mason's section. The man knows good food!

What a cool destination! Great layout, a wide variety of coffee fixin's and friendly staff. Keep in mind there is NO WIFI!!! That's by design, apparently to spur conversation. I'd say that it does, making this a great place to relax, not necessarily work.

The big box pharmacies aren't bad, but you and I both know there's little in the way of personalized service there. Keith at 4th Street Pharmacy is the customer service antidote! Why? First, they remember my name. Second, they deliver to my door. And third, when my insurance wouldn't cover particular drugs, they worked with me to keep it affordable. Great service guys. Keep it up!
