  1. no, i couldn't send an image to my classmate for a project, so i uploaded it here and sent him the link. thanks though.
  2. Can't paste picture into message, so displaying link to get to picture.
  3. I don't know how to phrase this as "help" instead of an "answer." A suggestion would be to look at the way these specific groups give birth. One of them lays eggs, gives live birth to mature children, and lastly one of them gives birth to live, premature young and raises them in a pouch. Similarities? They are all mammals and keep their blood temperature stable within their own bodies.
  4. I had actually been wondering about this. The hype about it seemed to have some fairly convenient statistics, and fairly vague symptoms. With all of the back and forth over the web, I couldn't make a decision as to whether it was real or not.
  5. first one that comes to mind. http://askville.amazon.com/Neurosyphilis-affect-brain-body/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=15159307 i don't think there is a comprehensive list of diseases that affect sensory perceptions, but i will keep looking.
  6. but do to non science "magic," the waste products disappear. So i assume that they aren't factored into the equation.
  7. well. This is an interesting scenario. I would have to say... that it would smell like the smell of the bacteria. If all the waste is expelled by "magic" as it's produced, and this bacteria decomposes the milk completely, including the proteins and lipids, then that leaves nothing behind except bacteria. Taking your experiment at face value, that should be the answer.
  8. I read this and imagined someone mainlining mercury in hopes of heightened abilities.
  9. The most common, I would have to say, is PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Symptoms include flashbacks, avoidance of triggers to said flashbacks, inability to feel emotions, detachment, and sometimes suicidal tendencies. For the most interesting, I would have to say Post-Abortion Syndrome. It involves some of the weirdest symptoms I've ever heard of, and also has a large stigma around it (abortion in general).
  10. the molting definitely doesn't go all the way through to the skin. Just because of the fact that they live in Antarctica, I would have to say showing bare skin would be a fatal flaw for the penguins.
  11. I definitely don't have any suggestions. Pretty much out of my league at that point. I know diseases that affect sensory perception, if that's what you're asking?
  12. I assume you can tell the difference between the two, so i'll just post the picture. From what i can tell, there are close to the same size, but it looks like the rotifers are consistently smaller. Tardigrades win in the cool contest, though. At least in my opinion.
  13. Nice list. To answer your question, thirst and hunger are not outside stimuli producing sensory reactions, so they are not technically senses.
  14. Well, in a natural selection sense, yes. By introducing a species into an environment only some of its population is suited to, you can speed up the evolution process in favor of the suited phenotype. This is called directional selection, or the gradual shift of a population into a suitable phenotype based on the entire groups genotype.
  15. I cast my vote for this thread as being the best thread ever.
