Science Proves You Can't Tickle Yourself, Even After Swapping Bodies With Someone Else!

Science has proven yet again that we can't tickle ourselves no matter how hard we try!

You know how it's not possible to tickle yourself?

Well, some freaky (or bored) scientists actually decided to do something about it!

They set up a test based on the theory that we can't tickle ourselves because the brain negates any sensation caused by its own movements.

Dr. George Van Doorn and several colleagues created a body-swap illusion by setting up 23 test subjects and measured their potential for self-tickling.

According to the BPS Research Digest, the experiment was set up like so:

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPanda

Baby pandas ride a rocking horse at Chengdu Research Base!

Oh boy… we can already feel it bubbling up…

We're heading for a serious cuteness overload and we don't know if we can handle it.

Baby pandas are already some of the cutest things on the whole planet… so when they start doing adorable things, you gotta watch out.

For example, take this video of a baby panda riding a rocking horse - Srsly, just try watching the video without melting from all the cute.

This little baby panda lives at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in Sichuan, China, and honestly, we don't know how those researchers work at a place like that… we'd be too busy stealing pandas to get any work done! LOLz!

So, wanna see a baby panda riding a rocking horse?

How about two different baby pandas riding a rocking horse?? HAPPY 2014!

New Top Predator Dinosaur Discovered In Utah!

Filed under: Science!Dinosaur

Field Museum scientists have found a new "top predator" dinosaur in Utah!

This is really cool because this dino, dubbed Siats meekerorum, is a precursor to the T-Rex.

Siats was around tens of millions of years before the T-Rex and is part of the allosauroids' megaraptor subgroup. That sounds like it's an allosaurus (basically a T-rex) mixed with a giant velociraptor.

So basically just super terrifying!

At 4-tons and 30-feet-tall, Siats is the third-largest

Scientists found and then killed a 507-year-old clam... the world's oldest creature!

Normally not very newsworthy.

But this clam was special, Ming the clam was originally thought to be 405-years-old… that's insane!

What's crazier is that

Crybaby Seal Complains Ice Water Is Too Cold!

Filed under: SealCuteness!Funny

This is hilarious and kinda way freaky. What ARE those noises??

This seal, a total crybaby, realllllly didn't want to go in some icy cold water.

And he made sure to let some Antarctic researchers know it!

A research team studying population ecology of Weddell seals in the Antarctic got the opportunity to film a seal pup who was recently weaned by his mother.

The young seal was forced to learn to survive on his own, but he didn't seem happy at all!

Life is much easier when your mama takes care of everything for you!

Check out the video (above) to see a cutie seal complain to the camera.

twitter tweets shorter average

If you've watched any 24-hour news networks in the past year, you probably already know that Twitter is getting more and more popular.

A few clicks to follow the right people and suddenly you quite literally have your finger on the pulse!

But it turns out tweets aren't just getting more prevalent — they're also getting shorter! Researchers at the University of The Philippines found that since the creation of the 140-character social networking tool, messages have dropped in average length.

Ch-ch-check out the pic (below) to see the totally scientific graphical evidence of our declining tweeting patterns.

Yeah, we don't fully understand it either. What's important is why?

The researchers' guess is
