    Default Weird Science

    No, not the mediocre at best 80s movie, but anything that sends a tickle through your cerebral cortex or straight up gives you a full on nerd boner.

    There are no rules in this thread other than do not criticize or mock anyone for sharing something that you already knew and assumed everyone else to already know.

    Why does spider silk have to get all the glory? How come no one ever talks about snail teeth? Or the fact that they anywhere from 1,000 to 20,000 teeth?

    The Ig Nobel Prize - brought to you by the Annals of Improbable Research. Improbable Research

    List of Ig Nobel Prize winners - Wikipedia

    A few of my favorites:

    • Economics – Presented to Gauri Nanda of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for inventing Clocky, an alarm clock that runs away and hides, repeatedly, thus ensuring that people get out of bed, and thus theoretically adding many productive hours to the workday.
    • Literature: Garda Síochána for writing and presenting more than 50 traffic tickets to a Polish individual, by the name of "Prawo Jazdy". Mr. "Jazdy" was widely thought to be the most frequent driving offender in Ireland, until an investigation uncovered the fact that Prawo Jazdy is the Polish term for "Driving License"
    • Acoustics: Kazutaka Kurihara and Koji Tsukada for creating the SpeechJammer – a machine that disrupts a person's speech by making them hear their own spoken words at a very slight delay.
    • Physics: Marc-Antoine Fardin, for using fluid dynamics to probe the question "Can a Cat Be Both a Solid and a Liquid?"
    • Medicine: Marc Mitchell and David Wartinger, for using roller coaster rides to try to hasten the passage of kidney stones.

    Weird Science mediocre at best? Kelly Lebrock (In 1985) was not mediocre. And what about the amazing Bill Paxton (RIP) as the dickhead older brother Chet, soon after to portray the immortal wisecracking colonial marine Hudson in James Cameron’s 1986 classic Aliens?

    For shame young lady! For shame.
    There is no mysterious essence we can call a 'place'. Place is change. It is motion killed by the mind, and preserved in the amber of memory.

    I enjoyed the 90s tv series reboot of the 80s movie (which was itself something of a reboot of the 60s TV series "I Dream Of Jeanie" thereby bringing the show back to its TV series roots) that aired on TNT or USA (I don't recall which). My favorite episode was the one that highlighted transgenderism by turning the boys into beautiful women, wherein they spent most of the episode squeezing their own pecs in the mirror.

    If you make the movies exist in the same universe Hudson is an atavism of Chet. Great great great grandson most like. Game over man.

    I dont think this should really be considered as wierd of science as it seems to be (I say seems to be, because this is the first Ive heard of it, and I would think this kind of thing would be so hot right now.)
