The male cabbage white butterfly releases some pretty hefty anti-aphrodisiac pheromones in hopes of securing its progeny. Unfortunately for them, these same pheromones are then detected by parasitic wasps, which kill their eggs. Totalllll backfire! #WildSex photo: Megan McCarty

What a strange and wonder-filled world we live in, and how little we know about it!

I think that is the circuit for a transconductance multiplier. It can do analog multiply and divide functions with voltage.

 A denatured enzyme very rarely holds its substrate.  While dissociate would be a better choice, it is not necessarily inaccurate to mention denaturing. 

That said, if +Carin Bondar  actually read the posts placed in her name she might have asked whoever made this to correct it to dissociate.  These have been placed on her behalf for some time now.

Most of what you know, is a GMO. 
Next time you bite into a slice of watermelon or a cob of corn, consider this: these familiar fruits and veggies didn't always look and taste this way.

+Christos Ouzounis, who's the one doing the marketing?

All I ever see from the "pro-GMO" side are skeptics saying "lol noob, all ur wallet are belong to anti-science marketers." They're not selling a product, they're pointing out that when Grape Nuts went non-GMO, they increased their price, reduced the amount of product in each box, and the result is less nutritious, and other specific stories, and lamenting at the loss of life that advances like Golden Rice could prevent.

If they were selling a product, then where are my shill bucks?

Ok Everyone - I'm gonna reveal another side of myself here. I am an artist of sorts. I have been making things for friends for a while, and they have convinced me that I should open a little Etsy shop. So, finally I have. Check it out, I'd love to hear what you think!

It's all about art, mindfulness, and enjoying the simple things in our day to day <3

Apparently Venus might be habitable...
Venus might have once been habitable and home to a shallow ocean.

There's a monumental difference between "once possibly habitable" and "might be habitable".

Beware of science myths! 
There are a number of old wives’ tales out there regarding some basic scientific principles. Though most of them were refuted years ago, these rumor
