Passing this on....
 
Me: "I wonder if Robert the Bruce's battle flag was green and purple..."

Coworker: "Uhhh... why would it be green and purple?"

Me: "Well, you know, cause it's ... Bruce's Banner."

Co-worker looks at floor and sighs "God damn it."

Cool.
 
Shockwaves from an underwater explosion

Water is highly incompressible, which means it does not readily change volume in response to a change in pressure. This means that a shockwave from an underwater explosion does not dissipate quickly like it does in air and actually travels much further.

In this demonstration, the three balloons are filled with air and highlight the shockwave passing through the water. Because air is a compressible fluid, the balloons are significantly deformed by the shockwave.

Unlike the demonstration of a person diving underwater to avoid gunfire, escaping an explosion this way would likely result in death. While the majority of the human body is water that the shockwave would leave unharmed, there are plenty of compressible parts (i.e. air filled lungs) that would be heavily damaged by the rapid change in pressure.

A decent summary.
 
Something can only be considered scientific if it can be disproven.

You know you want to....

Heavy rock lost its most iconic figure over Christmas with the sudden and unexpected death of Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister. Lemmy was a force of nature and the very essence of heavy metal. We believe it is fitting that the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry recommend that one of the four new discovered Heavy Metals in the Periodic table is named Lemmium. An astrological object (a star) has been named Lemmy to meet the IUPAC naming reco...
