Chimps Beat Humans In Memory Tests?!

Filed under: Science!AmazingChimpanzee

Chimps have better memory than humans, study finds!

Kyoto University's Primate Research Institute in Inuyama, Japan is really great at making the average human look like a fool!

No, they're not really into putting banana peels at the tops of stairwells… (that just sounds super dangerous), they're into chimpanzee research!

They've found that chimps have an incredible capacity for remembering things.

One of the study's findings was reported by New Scientist as:

Jessica Chastain In Talks To Appear In Iron Man 3!

jessica-chastain-in-talks-to-appear-in-iron-man-3

Nice!

A supremely talented actress like her will fit RIGHT in among the rest of this cast!

Jessica Chastain is reportedly in negotiations to appear in the Shane Black-directed third installment of the Iron Man franchise. Jessica will play a "sexy scientist," who is apparently just as smart as the superhero Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr.!

Apparently, the Academy Award nominee was initially the top choice for the part, but she unfortunately couldn't commit due to scheduling conflicts with other projects, including the Kathryn Bigelow-directed Osama Bin Laden movie!

However, she must have

Scientist Using Stem Cells To Grow A Hamburger In His Lab

Filed under: FoodScience!

Burger from the lab

Forget grass-fed beef. How about Petri dish grown beef instead?

Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, thinks he'll be able to grow a hamburger in his lab in one year's time by using stem cells harvested from leftover animal material from the slaughterhouse floor.

Sounds kinda gross at first, but if it works, this process could eventually save countless animals' lives

South Korea Clones Coyotes

Filed under: AmazingCrazzzzyCoyote

Coyote

Hwang Woo-suk is a disgraced scientist. His "breakthrough" human cloning researcher in 2005 was found to be completely faked.

He may have finally redeemed himself.

He and his team in South Korea are claiming to have been the first team to clone coyotes.

They say they are going to raise the coyotes but eventually donate them to zoos around the world.

Why don't you send one our way? We want a "clonote." LOLz!

Scientists Engineer Bullet-Proof Skin!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!

Bullet Proof vest

Forget bullet-proof vests! We want bullet-proof skin!

Dutch scientists have created a skin made with goat's milk packed with spider-silk proteins that is able to STOP bullets fired at reduced speeds!

Key word being "reduced", as the super-human skin can not withstand a bullet from a .22 caliber rifle shot yet, but maybe one day!

Researchers have already grown human skin around the strengthened material, but need more time to determine whether or not the bullet-proof skin can actually be engineered into humans.

We're totally picturing a genius, but troubled scientist begging his financiers for more money, which is being denied after one crucial test went wrong. Now he must be the first human test subject for the risky procedure which inadvertently turns him into a bullet-proof super villain bent on getting revenge against those who threatened his life's work!

If only science was actually THAT exciting! LOL!
