Technically, the dolphins thing was discovered many months to several years ago, that article that you are referring to was just rehashing information. (Marine Biologist here)

6 pictures in this post.

6 divided by two is three.

Half Life 3 confirmed.

Stop stealing these from I ******* Love Science on Facebook, you enormous ****** you.

where do you think they get them in the first place...
everyone is a ****** except the people that originally made this
the guy on fj
the ****** on facebook who steals this **** from some other site
#276 to #272 - tackyface (02/25/2013) [-]
Dude, just go to I ******* Love Science's page. They post articles on lots of interesting discoveries made in the scientific world, and then, at the end of each week, they compile it into the above post. Stop being a ****** and accept OP as a fellow one, too.

It's is very nice that he does this and it peaks my interest. So Adolf just allow him to do as he pleases, he is not hurting anyone.

Uh...For the lunar rock one.

The moon was a part of us until it broke off when we got hit by a meteor.
Of ******* course it's going to have some traces of water in it.

this may not be true. remember, it is only a theory for a reason.
User avatar #304 to #257 - tomtomat ONLINE (02/26/2013) [-]
Evolution is just a theory.
Gravity is just a theory.
User avatar #269 to #257 - falloutfanatic (02/25/2013) [-]
A theory in the field of science is a widely regarded and accepted fact as accurately being the appropriate representation of a phenomena. What you are referring to is a hypothesis, an untested/lightly tested idea that is not generally accepted by the scientific community as fact. Not saying this to be a ****** , making sure misinformation is not spread even wider than it already is.

this week in religion: 50 people died in a Muslim riot because a film was made claiming Muslims weren't peaceful.

Also, despite former belief, we have discovered that the earth is in fact round and not flat.

You can talk about something beside space?
User avatar #289 to #271 - thespacecore (02/25/2013) [-]
Yes I can, you racist prick.

Just because I'm the "Space Core" you think all I talk about is space?

Racist **** .

Can someone explain 3D printers to me? I don't get it.
#246 to #219 - fuckedbyapony (02/25/2013) [-]
We have one at college and its basically a tray of sand like stuff in which the printer moves over layer by layer adding tiny bits of glue to the parts that need sticking together to make the object (It's mainly used at college for small house layouts and buildings etc) But it produces really amazing things and there is numerous possibilities for what it could be used for.
Say in the future we travel in space and the crew need to build or repair something, Instead of taking every possibility of tool they need with them, they can just carry the designs on a computer(or have it sent to them if necessary) and when need this machine can actually produce tools that are strong enough for use and i'm not sure how but I've seen videos where they've produced tools with moving parts e.g an adjustable spanner
Quite interesting really..
(Picture related, its model tanks made with a 3d Printer)

You assemble warhammer tanks with a printer? Awesome.
#234 to #219 - jellomen ONLINE (02/25/2013) [-]
Basically, it's exactly like a typical printer, except it prints a real object by covering multiple layers. It will "print" a layer of the object, then it moves up a bit and "prints" the second layer, it keeps doing this until the object is done. The "ink" that it uses is usually some type of plastic-like material. It sprays it down and uses a UV light to harden the material instantly. Not sure if this makes sense, but here's a video if you feel like watching it to understand it more : www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmDz7Q9_h6c : (if link is removed, just enter this into google "/watch?v=WmDz7Q9_h6c" and click the first link)

3d printers use a scanning program to scan any 3d object, as well as use an AutoCAD program if you want to construct something from scratch, that then prints it as a 3d object. there are a few different ways they do it, search it up on youtube. its pretty balls.
