They will uncover a small cache of impossibly advanced fossils – fossils that could not possibly be what they appear to be. The objects appear similar to the robotic animals of the archaeologists’ day, but they clearly predate the contemporary iterations of these creatures. Is it possible that robots evolved into sentient, reproductive beings far earlier than the history books taught them? The fossils are actually the work of artist Chase Black.

He’ll ask you how many electric switches are in your iPhone and casually chat about SpaceShipOne. It seems as though Nye were born to play the role for which he is best known: “the science guy,” an amusing, bow-tie-wearing teacher with an entertaining experiment to go with every scientific phenomena.

47 Mind-Blowing Psychology-Proven Facts You Should Know About Yourself

As in: 100 things you should know if you are going to design an effective and persuasive website, web application or software application.

By Chris Parsons Published: 13:20 GMT, 2 July 2012 | Updated: 15:23 GMT, 2 July 2012 Propping up the Leaning Tower of Pisa or hanging from a cliff face are not what most most would expect when visiting the average art gallery or museum.

Today I found out humans have a lot more than five senses. It turns out, there are at least nine senses and most researchers think there are more like twenty-one or so.

Just for reference, the commonly held definition of a “sense” is “any system that consists of a group of sensory cell types that respond to a specific physical phenomenon and that corresponds to a particular group of regions within the brain where the signals are received and interpreted.” The commonly held human senses are as follows: Sight: This technically is two senses given the two distinct types of receptors present, one for color (cones) and one for brightness (rods).Taste: This is sometimes argued to be five senses by itself due to the differing types of taste receptors (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami), but generally is just referred to as one sense.

For those who don’t know, umami receptors detect the amino acid glutamate, which is a taste generally found in meat and some artificial flavoring. 2011- SOULCALIBUR-CASSANDRA by ~Vandrell on deviantART.
