What Do Cannabis and Forex Have In Common?
There are many laws I find fundamentally appalling, but the US Government stating it is more acceptable for the general population to fuck animals than to make an honest living in these industries is just embarrassing as a US Citizen... time for a fundamental change of leadership is way overdue. Let's shake things up! ‪ #feelthebern #cannabis #forex

Super cool idea for using that new 3d Printer that Santa brought to decorate your space!
“We find their shells fossilized everywhere,” explains biochemistry and human genetics researcher Dr. Allen Drummond. “They’re museum staples – but we rarely see what they really looked like, with all of their soft tissues (legs, antennae, gills) intact.”
#trilobites #arthropods #fossils #3dprinting

Over the past few years, we've seen 3D printing prove itself an invaluable resource for engineers. It's helped us build prosthetics, instruments, drones – hell, we've even printed a mini jet engine that can blast at 33,000 RPM. But in the hands of creatives, the hackable tech has done something else entirely: allowed them to make unbelievable art. For University of Chicago assistant professor Dr. Allan Drummond, that art comes in the form of resu...

Such a wonderful lesson in perseverance!
After 3 failed attempts and a dwindling budget, SpaceX's ORBCOMM-2 Mission is checked off as a huge success. This mission marks the first successful attempt at return-to-flight as well as its first successful attempt to land a first stage on land. It has to make that victory so much sweeter!

Congrats Elon and SpaceX team!
Such an amazing accomplishment.

awesome infographic outlining the relationship of sound and musical instruments
 
The Physics of Sound

Did you know that humans can hear sounds that range in frequency from 20 Hz on up to 20 000 Hz? And did you know that when we listen to music, we are listening to a collection of notes that differ from one another by their frequency? And did you know that various instruments have unique frequency ranges within which they can produce sounds? The following infographic by the Odd Quartet provides a wealth of amazing detail regarding the range of frequencies produced by various instruments, comparing them to the sounds played by notes within the various octaves of a piano keyboard. The infographic can be found on our Pinterest site at ...

The original source of the infographic is from the Odd Quartet's website:

"The standard of care for pancreatic cancer really hasn’t changed in the last 20 years. There are a number of different chemotherapeutic options but in general it’s not very selective – it’s like hitting the disease with a mallet with your eyes closed.” ~ Dr. Peter Baily
Breakthrough paves the way for more accurate treatment of a cancer fewer than 20% of sufferers survive more than year after diagnosis

figuring out how to grow a new pancreas from a patient's DNA would be great too.

If they don't call it Nibiru... it will break Zecharia Sitchin's heart! #Nibiru, #9thPlanet, #PlanetX
Researchers have found evidence of a giant planet tracing a bizarre, highly elongated orbit in the outer solar system. The object, which the researchers have nicknamed Planet Nine, has a mass about 10 times that of Earth and orbits about 20 times farther from the sun on average than does Neptune (which orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles). In fact, it would take this new planet between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the sun.

Now they have "evidence," based on mathematical modelling and computer simulations. After further investigation, if/when they have observed proof of the planet's existence, naming can begin.

Dear Hertz,

Why is your company so crappy?

Your customer service supervisors being rude, insulting and refusing to answer questions regarding charges after you billed me $700.00 for a rental that lasted just over 24 hours. WTF?

My previous rental from Hertz you tried charging me over $5000.00 for a vehicle that was turned in 2 weeks previously and was over 3000 miles away. It took a month dealing with you to get that sorted...

Not like it is just me either... review after review from your customers speaks for itself!

- Unethical, liars, bait and switch artist.
- Dishonest and rude management. Filthy and smelly vehicles.
- "reservation" has no meaning, poor customer service
- DISHONEST EMPLOYEES - Poor Corporate service
- Vehicle was dirty. I was told one price but then they tried to charge more
- Poor car preparation. Poor car maintenance. Poor customer relations.
- learned to never rent a vehicle from Hertz
- terrible and rude service. over charged by $661 dollars.
- No accountability, no service
-Inflated rates, hidden charges, no communication or warning of changes or charges

and here are 300+ more should you choose to acknowledge their similar customer comments.
http://www.epinions.com/reviews/trvl-Transportation-Auto_Rental-All-Hertz/22327818

I repeat... why is your company so crappy?

Worst description by scientists... ever "their spiny head appendages were believed to be the body of a shrimp, the toothed mouth was considered to represent a jellyfish, and their complete bodies were described as sea cucumbers!"
Arthropods first appear in the fossil record some 530 million years ago.

WTF - I AM PAYING FOR THIS?? Two weeks and counting... After 8 hours on the phone with 3 different supervisors who didn't know their rear from their ear, 4 pointless tech support calls, 2 account reps who claimed they could do nothing, 4 visits to my home from Technicians to diagnose the problem and hitchhiking to Truckee in the pouring rain to swap out my modem, Suddenlink still insists on charging me a $40 installation fee, a reconnection fee, and $70 a month for a 50 Mbps connection that even their installation tech's say they can't sustain and should not be selling. Although the individuals I have spoken with directly have been very nice, I seriously want to nominate this company for the "Worst Customer Service Ever" Title.

WARNING!!!! STACKWALL MANUFACTURING=DISHONEST OWNER & EMPLOYEES Roman and his daughter Nicole E Manko who own and operate Stackwall Manufacturing Inc. at 149 S. San Antonio Ave. in Pomona California are not to be trusted! They are dishonest, deceitful and just plain criminals. You might as well throw your money in the trash can as spend it with their company. I tried to rectify my issue with them for over a month and now they refuse to return my phone calls. I am currently pressing criminal charges for operating as an unlicensed dealer, selling under false pretense and suing them for expenses due to the fact that they failed to provide me with documentation that is required by the State of California.
