  1. Just to go back to the original question of why we sleep... I think we should look at what happens when we don't sleep. Randy Gardner - Awake for 11 Days Sleep Deprivation Rats don't do too well either
  2. I was thinking, I joined this forum back in high school (2005) and now I will be attending grad school. Granted, I don't post a lot (0.14 posts per day, hah) - but I figured I'd post for this. I will be going to a 1 year Social Psych grad program (Masters), specifically involved in Group Dynamics and Influence. You may see more of me around, since I may be asking for help regarding some topics (testing out ideas) - seeing as I have to write a thesis and I'm not entirely sure what that will be. Anyhow, just figured I'd share
  3. hmm, interesting. it looks me like her joints twisted the other way...? Like her knees bend the other way. hard to tell though.
  4. I was there too And specifically iNow, it was at McCormick Place - a super-gigantic convention center. edit: the reason why there were some posters without presenters was that the posters were up for 5 hours, and the presenters were scheduled to be there for only 1 hour of that time.
  5. oops thanks, I thought someone else wrote that one.
  6. I guess we should ask, why did you have the EEG?
  7. I haven't read the whole thread, so I don't know if anyone has corrected this or not. But you can do an EEG without shaving the person's head. A gel is used to help the signal. anyway, carry on.
  8. Wow, this thread has grown quite a bit since I last saw it, I'll definitely have to read it again and btw, I saw altruism in animals was mentioned. If anyone is interested, in APA's magazine "Monitor" - there is an article (in the most recent one) about monkeys being nice and food, and how sometimes they'll give the more desirable food to another monkey for seemingly no reason. The Evolutionary reason being that it's easier to survive in a group than to go solo or try to find another group, so being nice and getting along can help out.
  9. yup, that's what he means http://www.patriotfiles.com/forum/imgcache/1562.png some were even more curved but as I said, they typically shattered/fractured the bullets.
  10. true, but it would certainly reduce the amount of time that the cat went into his yard.
  11. I apologize for not reading the whole thread, but the answer is very simple. Your neighbors need to buy their cat a littler box. That's it. It can still get "fresh air" - as the owners said; having a litter box does not mean the cat can't go out doors, it just means it'll do it's business inside. My uncle's cat is an outdoor cat, still has a litter box though, and uses it all the time.
  12. Really cool! Got stuck at 2:4
  13. seems like the correlation is pretty good too.

    Brain/alcohol

    I remember learning that the brain of an alcoholic can actually look like some other neurodegenerative disease because it has lost mass - I don't remember what it resembles, as we just touched on it.
  15. I was just thinking, what other scientific fields have official symbols associated with them? Medicine has the Rod of Asclepius, Psychology uses the Greek uppercase letter Psi [math]\Psi[/math] Do any others have symbols corresponding with them?
  16. Is it a specific tattoo, or in a specific location? What about someone with a full sleeve? For the belly ring, the age range is such that it doesn't hold any significance other than looks. I can't see it being different than an eyebrow ring, a nose ring, etc.
  17. I haven't heard that it does mean that.

    Button Cell Question

    Ah alright, cool. Thanks guys
  19. You would need a constant supply of glucose. but brain functioning does tend to decrease as time goes on. So, are you asking for a healthy brain living for many years, or just any brain?
  20. lol, my apologies, I just found the closest one from the bottom
  21. hmm, interesting. From the schools I looked up it said that there's no minimum of GRE scores that they'll accept -- but I have a feeling that's only partially true.
  22. Stevie, what you're asking for is just pure speculation. The only thing close to time machines that people can conceive that would not rely on magic are black holes, worm holes, and thing's of that nature. It sounds like you're looking for a scientifically-based way of having someone step into a small machine. and as SkepticLance said: "I suggest you do not worry too much about how the time machine works, and just rely on it as a plot device." If you go into too much detail, there are bound to be people who say "this isn't possible with his methods" - if you don't go into any detail however, you won't have that problem.
