MindReader and learning [22 Jul 2009|06:54pm]

areopagit_com

The specialists of the International center for education "Areopagit" (www.areopagit.com) develop the "convincing" to learn program. This program is designed on the base of the research of Dr. Igor Smirnov “Semantic Stimuli Response Measurements Technology”, or SSRM Tek, a software-based mind reader that supposedly tests a subject's involuntary response to subliminal messages.

The program inspires to recipient an idea about need to learn, think and develop their own abilities. If to unite this program with a network self spreading module (like a virus) then during several months it would install on hundreds of thousands of personal computers around the world. Besides, program can define the language of the user and use suitable - an English, French, Chinese, Spanish, German, Russian or Arabic.

Monster Mondays - 12 Great Monster Dads [23 Jun 2009|10:06pm]

boju
Today a very special Monster Mondays looks at the famous fathers of monsterdom. As a soon to be dad, I'm interested in what each of these earthbound abominations can teach me about what makes a good parent, and what makes an unholy creature of the night.

Monsters are ranked in order of parenting skills.



12. Dr. Victor Frankenstein.
While I normally live my life by the motto WWVFD? when it comes to parenting the good doctor is about as bad as it gets. After creating a man out of corpses, he neglects to name it, insults its looks, abandons it, and then hunts it down to kill it. It's clear in the book and many of the movies that the monster sees Victor as his father, and since the Doctor never gave him a proper name, the family name of Frankenstein is absolutely as the only name of the creature. Frankenstein deniers say the only Frankenstein was Victor, a statement the Dr would find a relieving since it takes up his position of denying his creation its family and humanity. Frankienstein's Monster my ass. And if that wasn't bad enough, Dr. Frankenstein is no more capable of parenting when it's his own flesh and blood and not a reanimated corpse. Son of Frankenstein is alienated and spiteful of his father, who was always more a mad scientist then a family man.

Monster Mondays: Tyrannosaurus Feathers [12 May 2009|10:05pm]

boju
Today, Dapper Cadaver's Monster Mondays has some sad news. Word is pouring in from China of new Dinosaurs, fluffy and covered with delicate colorful plumage. First it was the Velociraptors, once proud ninja's of the dinosaur world, now just toothed roosters, complete with cocks-comb and dwaddle. More recent finds of fluffy dinos include several Tyrannosaurids. The greatest real monster to ever walk the earth is about to get a make-over in fabulous feathers. It's absurd. Imagine you're in a broken down jeep on Jurassic Park, you hear a thump, the water in your cup does that dino sensing thing that you keep cups of water in the car for, then you hear a deafening "Gobble-gobble-gobble" as the largest turkey you've ever seen steps out of the woods.



It hasn't happened yet. The feathered Tyrannosaurids the Chinese have discovered aren't the King beast, Tyrannosaurus Rex, just his scrawny uncles and cousins, but storm clouds are gathering on the distant pasts future. In 5 years time our children won't be able to tell Big Bird from Rex, and in 10 years time I wouldn't be surprised if we stopped calling Tyrannosaurs, Drommeosaurs, and Oviraptors "Feathered Dinosaurs" and started calling them "Toothed Birds." It must be stopped. If we can make Pluto a planet again through through the shear force of nostalgia, then science be damned, we can keep TRex scaly and terrifying. Join me!

The idea of wearing feathers sickens T Rex's only living relative, Godzilla.



But Godzilla may not be the only surviving radioactive mutant T Rex for long, apparently, one of the scientists who worked on Jurasic Park (I knew it was a true story!) is working on genetically engineering Chickens to give birth to mutant chicken-osauruses. I couldn't make this stuff up.

Kids need scary monsters to eat there smaller toys and to team up with Batman in kids crayon drawings, to fight cowboys, give King Kong a run for his money, and, scientifically speaking, be 51% MOTHERFUCKER, 49% son-of-a-bitch.


Will T-Rex still be the motherfucker we love and fear if he goes from this to this?



In closing, I would like to once and for all establish T-Rex as the scaly Tyrant King of Pimps by giving the people what we always wanted- Tyrannosaurus Sex



If you'd like to support the keep T-Rex scaly movement, you can help by buying a Tyrannosaurus skeleton.

Monster Mondays: The Mysterious Lemur Boy of Qatar [27 Apr 2009|06:31pm]

boju
Today's Dapper Cadaver Monster Monday comes from a hot tip that came out just this weekend. The English language "Gulf Times" ran a translation of a Qatar story that featured this creepy photo, and the following text



"A mysterious figure resembling a human being was sighted on the Doha Corniche’s parking lot, according to a report published in a local Arabic daily.
The report is based on the statement of an Arab expatriate lady who said she had seen the strange figure near the Oryx statue while walking in the area.
Quoting the woman, the daily said she took a picture of it in spite of being terribly frightened.
“She was very soon surrounded by a large number of people who also attested to the fact of what she had seen . But it suddenly disappeared out of their sight when they tried to go near it,” the report added."


Some have speculated it's an escaped Aye-Aye, a kind of hideous lemur native to Madagascar but known to have hilarious adventures adventures in other parts of the world thanks to their anthropomorphic penguin pals.



Or is the creature a Canadian made genetically engineered living toy? Find out after the cut

Monster Mondays - Dolichocephaloids [02 Mar 2009|07:27pm]

boju

Todays Monster Monday from Dapper Cadaver travels down the spine of the Americas to Peru, circa 2000 years ago for a kind of person bizarre and real, the Dolichocephaloids or Peruvian Coneheads. There is currently a video going around getting a lot of attention saying they were found in Siberia. This video is wrong, they are from Peru.


What we do know about the Dolichocephaloids is limited, what we believe about them is vast, and what we don't know about them is enormous.

What we do know - These guys had really long squash shaped heads. They were human. They lived in Peru roughly 2000 years ago. There were a lot of them.

Most had brains the same size as other humans (1400-1600cc) others had larger brains, up to 2000cc or 2 liters. If you want to experience how much larger that is get a human skull and fill the brain case up with soda. Empty a whole 2 liter bottle. Whatever spills on your desk is how much bigger their brains are then ours.

Top 14 Real Life Mad Scientists [09 Sep 2008|12:47pm]

boju

laboratory essentials, originally uploaded by Boju.

WARNING: This article contains images and material that may be upsetting to some readers. While Dr. Victor Frankenstein is the epitome of the movie Mad Scientist, his experiments in reanimating the dead are positively tame compared to some of the real life beaker jockeys who earn the title. For starters, Dr. Frankenstein's victims were already dead, and were criminals to boot. The most common victims of mad science are innocent animals.

With that said, let's get mad!

13. Dr. Thomas Park.

Dr. Thomas park studies unusual sensory perception amongst mammals, which means his research is dedicated to the creepiest of creatures - Bats and Naked Mole Rats. While we all know bats are the air born form of vampires, many people have not been exposed to the shivering pink mass of flesh and teeth that live like a termite and look like an abortion.
MAD SCIENCE EXPERIMENT: Mole rats cannot be burned with acid.
""Their insensitivity to acid was very surprising," Park told LiveScience. "Every animal tested — from fish, frogs, reptiles, birds and all other mammals — every animal is sensitive to acid." Was Park just throwing acid on a random assortment of creatures to test his theory that they hate it? And what did he do once he discovered mole rats couldn't be burned? He genetically engineered a cold sore that would make them burnable again.

12. Dr. Warren Thomas

Warren Thomas is a scientist who did a lot of acid in 1962. So much so that he thought it would be a good idea to dose an Elephant with LSD. The elephant, named Tusko, died in almost immediately. He claimed in his defense he didn't expect that result, saying he had done plenty of acid himself and that the drug produce no ill effects. What he did expect was the elephant to fly into a psychotic rage, much better right?

11. Dr. Robert Cornish

Robert Cornish is a scientist who, in Berkley, CA, 1930, managed to resurrect 2 dead dogs by placing them on a seesaw to circulate the blood and injecting them with a mixture of adrenalin and anticoagulants. Not surprising he was able to find a human volunteer for his experiments with a man condemned to be executed, and the state denied him permission for fear he could do it.

Saluton! ...Why am I speaking Esperanto? O_o Anyway... I'm Katie! Or Atagamay. Whatever you choose!

First off, this community has Beakman's World and Bill Nye in it's interests. Any community with that boon is great in my book! ^_^

Second off, I've been into science since I was... Well, however old I was when I could read and think real thoughts and stuff. Probably around three or so. I guess that makes me a fourteenth-year nerd veteran. Dang. No wonder I'm so crotchety... O_o

My favorite sciences are astronomy, cryptozoology, botany, physics (I'm bad at math, though.), technology/mechanical typer stuff, and chemistry. Especially small-time kitchen chemistry. With baking soda, vinegar, instant coffee, food coloring, cornstarch, and whatever else I could get my grubby little hands on. That was my childhood pastime... but yeah, I'm not that biased, though. I like all science. It's fun! X3

Aside from science, I have many other steriotypical nerd interests. Anime, video games, sci-fi, reading, language... All that good stuff! ^_^

So yeah. Hihi to you all, and enjoy your investigating!

I’ve started writing a new series of short stories, and will be posting them weekly, Mondays, at jaclynjones. They’ve got neuroscience industrial espionage, cyberpunk, horror, sex, crime, fashion, action-adventure, transhumanism, fine art and lots of psychopharmacology all rolled into fast fusion fiction. Neuropunk. I think they’re turning out well but I’d love to hear your general comments, as well as any technical advice, futuristic and/or extreme ideas you’d care to share. Your input would be much appreciated. The neuroscience scenarios are fictional (neurometempsychosis, I’d like to see) but mostly with enough basis in reality to make them feasible in not-so-distant future scenarios, and it’s great fun making up drug names. The first story is posted now. Check it out. Thanks!
