Watched this entire thing.
All of it.
And it was worth it!





Also gotta love Richard Dawkins.

EDIT:




This one has 5 parts.






These videos are interesting, and opened my eyes on some aspects of extraterrestrial life.

Seems really strange to see the spinal cord attached to the brain. Not something you really see often when looking at brains. xD

Yeah, interesting indeed. But what really got me is how she described her brain basically breaking. xD

Indeed. Golden retriever anyone? xD Thought it was strange how she specifically said that dog breed rather than just a dog but hey.
Interesting too how a stroke actually affects a person, never really had that knowledge.

Ahh, I loved the video of Dawkins breaking that Scottish guys heart.

I don't THINK it's been posted, but this is my favourite Dawkins video. Pretty much sums up Hitchen's point in the video where he talks about evil really well too. As well as the fact some people are too stupid :P


Or as a philosopher once said "define a human, you can't, because all humans are unique. this is facts. end of story"

I have erectile disfunction.. I trust you guys to keep that confidential.

Hahahahahaha, American astronomers and their acronyms..


Massive Astrophysical Compact Halo Objects - MACHOs
Weakly Interacting Massive Particles - WIMPs
Robust Associations of Massive Baryonic Objects - RAMBOs


So, we've got:
MACHOs
WIMPs
and RAMBOs in outer space now...

It was about this. http://www.omg-facts...iew/Facts/49834




Sometimes it's quite interesting to read what people have to say.
Some interesting articles, as well as some interesting comments on them.

Pretty interesting, the two opposing arguments in a nutshell:

1) There are and have been Sagans* of other types of animals, the chance that intelligent aliens are specifically bipedal is extremely low.

2) There have been Sagans of other types of animals, and only one of those turned out to be intelligent, so there's actually a decent change that intelligent life is bipedal.

*A Sagan is a unit of measurement that's greater than or equal to 4 billion, since the smallest number that may be described as billions and billions must be two billion plus two billion.


So what do you guys think? Option 1 or 2?
I don't think the majority would be bipedal, but calling the chance that they are insignificant is foolish in my opinion.
I'd go for option 2 rather than 1.

Krona pointed me to this video.



It has got 3 parts, and it's from a Discovery show.
It's got Adam Savage in it, so it's pretty awesome. :P

It's not really super scientific, but it's TV material so it's easy to watch without getting confused. :)
In short, some lightweight science. ^^
