Angry Birds to hit shop shelves this month

silverlion
Meh

Cheap cover

Wow - I wonder how many minutes they spent making the cover.

Apparently, not a whole lot.

Background; probably supposed to look like a sunrise in light green/marine pastel colors, with cloudlike sides and bottom.

Slap a title and one angry bird on it - done.

I think it deserves better, but maybe that's just me.

Boffins crack walnut-shaped Iapetus moon mystery

silverlion
WTF?

Extremely unlikely

There are at least two problems with that theory:

1. So this other moonlet was in an orbit aligned perfectly with the rotation axis of Iapetus?

That would be a one-in-a-billion coincidence. This alone moves it to the fringe of likelyhood.

2. The ridge is 20 km wide, and up to 20 km high in places. In some parts, you can clearly see three parallel ridges. Since when do impacts pile up nicely like that?

If you look at it closely, does it look even remotely like something that was made by impacts?

New 'reversible' paralysis-ray turns victims blue, flaccid

Alert

Drugrape

If it works in people, control with it needs to be extremely strict.

Imagine a girl in a disco getting her drink laced with it.

The rapist follows her home some hours later, and puts on a mask.

ZAP.

Wham-bam-thankyoumaam.

He might or might not unzap her afterwards.

Plasma Z-pinch and double layers

Oh, come on.

99.9 % or more of all matter in the universe is plasma, and astronomers/astrophysicists/cosmologists are completely overlooking the part that electricity plays.

This is clearly a very electrically stressed star, with hourglass-shaped plasma double-layers extending along the axis of the current it's subjected to.

NASA chuffed with super-accurate new map of universe

Redshift = intrinsic + distance

Quasars aren't as far away as most astronomers think, they just seem to be because they have high (intrinsic) redshifts.

Meaning; the redshift of quasars is mostly inherent, and the current interpretation of redshift is wrong. Redshift is partially related to distance, but also to the age of the object, and as the age increases, the intrinsic redshift drops in discrete (quantum) steps.

A quasar is a fairly newborn galaxy, ejected from the core of an old galaxy, so its intrinsic redshift is quite high.

NASA astronomers are completely ignoring what large maps of quasars are telling them about redshift. When will they wake up and 'discover' what the rest of us already know?
