Air embolism.

with one comment


Air bubble in syringe IS a big deal. It can get into your veins, and change the circulatory pressure, and CAUSE SUDDEN DEATH DAMMIT

Ok kidding. But it did say ‘Outside of pregnancy there is at least one case where an air embolism resulted from the insertion of an object into the vagina during masturbation‘.

Newscientist 2 : Invisibility cloaks, 2D-visioned babies, Sahara’s dairy farm, US-Israel cyberbullying, prehistoric kinkiness, Earth’s embiggening farts.

with 8 comments


1. Plasmonic graphene controls rippling electrons : With this, we can now put invisibility cloaks in our wishlist. In the next 5 to ten years lah.

2. Special goggles reveal when babies see in 3D : Yes people. It seems like newborns see in 2D. Or 1. God knows.

3. Dairy farming in the Sahara – 7000 years ago“The Sahara was quite a bit greener then,” Dunne says. “There were lakes, grasslands and a wide variety of animal life ranging from cattle to crocodiles and hippos.”

4. US and Israel developed Flame, says official : “Mega-malware Flame was indeed created by US and Israeli spies to sabotage Iran’s nuclear efforts, according to a report in the The Washington Post.” So yeah it’s totes okay for them to hack other countries, but super not cool when we’re doing that to them.

5. What a way to go: prehistoric turtles died during sex : AHAHA WAT prehistoric kinkinesssssss

6. Earthquake risk for carbon capture and storage schemes : To reduce CO2, we like, suck it out of the air and store it someplace dope. And that crib happens to be hipster(Underground? Geddit? Aha), and thanks to that the stomach of the Earth is bloating and comes out bigger farts and stuff or whatever.



‘Embiggening’ is not a word, kids.

Newscientist : Powder drugs, 3D orbits, Kinect’s awesomeness, AR.

leave a comment »


A series of things you should be in awe of.

  1. Injection-free drugs  : ‘powdered drugs are more stable than liquid drugs at room temperature – liquid drugs must be refrigerated to keep them stable. ‘
  2. Why planets can only orbit in 3D : Why the orbit isn’t a perfect circle. Nope, it’s not.
  3. Kinect isn’t just being used for super fun gaming : I’ve seen it used with a multifunction printer to detect company worker’s ID card and print stuff, my research lab is using it with AR to simulate radiation in real time, and now it’s being sent to space(attached to satellites of course) to turn spacecrafts to building blocks. Oh, also calculate astronaut’s weight in zero gravity(ya know, because they need to watch their weight while in space too).
  4. Augmented Reality(AR) : Behold the Awesomesauceness.
Range of usage :
From this,
