WTF?!? 10 Million Burger Patties With Horsemeat Get Recalled From Britain & Ireland!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHorses

How horrifying is this?!?

On Wednesday, 10 million burger patties packed with HORSEMEAT were recalled from Irish and British supermarkets, and although the meat is said to not cause any harm — there's no reason why beef should contain horsemeat.

After the Food Safety Authority of Ireland tested the patties' DNA, traces of My Little Pony horsemeat was found in over a third of the grub.

And now, according to Ireland's Prime Minister Enda Kenny:

Geneticists Plan To Examine Adam Lanza’s DNA For ‘Abnormalities’

Filed under: Sad SadMental HealthScience!Scary!Safety

No amount of genetic testing on a monster's body is going to bring back all the innocent lives lost in Newtown, but it just might help prevent others from occurring.

Whether your stance lands somewhere between a gun ban or giving guns to everyone, we think we're pretty okay with science taking a crack at it. We're just afraid that there will be a knee jerk reaction if they think they find something. Plus, what happens if they don't?

Sometimes you just can't find the reasons in the senseless, no matter how hard you look.

Here's what they might look for, according to someone involved with the plans:

Little Mix's New Video Is The Missing Link! WATCH DNA HERE!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTV

Did Frank Miller direct British X Factor girlgroup Little Mix's latest video?!

Cause it looks exactly like Sin City! You know, sans the hooker-eating Elijah Wood and that creepy, politically connected child murderer!

Ch-ch-check out the super stylized, femme-fatale music video for Little Mix's DNA (above)!

The tune itself is SUPER punchy-poppy with a hint of dub-steppy grime, we LOVE it! And we adore these super talented quartet!

So many hearts for you, Little Mix!

This is a very interesting and specific question — and we believe it varies by person.

But hey, that's just us. When you ask other people the question, though, who would know better than a nurse in NYC??

Check out the video (above) to see a pretty straight forward discussion on who she sees handling pain the best!

Fascinating!

In UR opinion, do men or women handle pain the best??

He told authorities in English that his father took him into the wilderness after

Biological Binary Exists: Scientists Develop DNA Digital Storage

Filed under: HealthBodyScience!

Human Computer

And we aren't just talking one use here, we're talking REWRITABLE digital storage in our DNA!

It's true, scientists have developed a biological system that can record digital data… biological binary, in other words!

Stanford researchers figured out how to us natural enzymes to create rewritable data storage built directly into living cells' DNA. Holy shizz!

Mainly they use the enzymes to flip DNA sequences back and forth, like a light switch, which can be seen as a binary-like system. If it's one direction, it's a 0, the other, it's a 1. You get it.

This can store up to one bit of data without using ANY power! Plus we can see how many time a cell has doubled.

This could lead to us being able to turn off affected cells, like in the case of cancer. We just need to bump up the storage to a byte — and that could take at least 10 years.

Ten years to a byte is CRAZY!

Though, this is super interesting. What we're taking from it is that the cells in our body can be turned into an iPod. Right? Riiiiiight?

Ha!

But really, this is a pretty huge discovery and could mean a lot of things for the medical industry.

It just sucks that it's going to take so much time.
