Thank you, how true! Never thought about it, but women are very skilled at using silence as aggression.

Nobel disease? I think they were just exploring some thing based on intuition the rest of us do not readily agree. Isn't that how scientists ventured to discover what the rest agreed to later. So why call their intuition a disease. If this is a disease, I would say a person would not evolve into a scientist without this.  
 
Intellectual brilliance is no guarantee against being dead wrong.

Cool Hoverbike!
 
cool clip about a hoverbike - 6 million views.  If everyone had things like this, we would need less roads.  :) Just breathtaking gardens, parks with a thousand flowers, scents, colors, amazing stuff instead of the boring grey roads. The corridors for flying a few feet above ground could be even made of purple grass so everyone knows and they don't just fly anywhere. :)

We need some anti-gravity, stuff that can hover just 2-3 feet above, silently, so that in case one falls, there is no injury. This hoverbike is too noisy for residential areas, but a nice concept. :)   If you want more info, go to the company website http://aerofex.com/. The bike is able to travel at 72 km/h (45 mph) and can hover up to 3.7 meters  (11 feet) off the ground.

Amazing thought process for disease control. 
 
Fighting infectious diseases
Saving the world from Ebola suddenly sounds so simple, as the solution spills from Colonel Dan Wattendorf’s mouth, up on the stage in the windowless banquet hall of this Marriott hotel south of San Francisco. "We’re going to take the genetic code and put it into a format where you go to your drug store or doctor and get a shot in the arm," Wattendorf told a room full of medical researchers and technologists.

Biological solution to pests.
 
The fungus among us could be the best pesticide we could find.....
Monsanto does not want this article to go viral, for if it does, it could very well bring about their demise. Please share!!!

Whhatt? The moon is not the only natural satellite of the earth? It could be on the other side of Sun relative to earth, and takes 800 years to go around the earth. My head spins in an as complicated orbit as Cruithne. Of course this is a provocative reference to a co-orbital. But interesting enough. Look up Wikipedia for "3753 Cruithne". 
 
We all know and love the moon. We're so assured that we only have one that we don't even give it a specific name. It's just The Moon. But the moon is not the Earth's only natural satellite. Here's what you need to know about 3753 Cruithne and what its weird orbit reveals about the solar system.
