"Human Skill Cells"

Um what
#149 to #141 - grrphc (05/21/2013) [-]
...Human skin cells.
What is so difficult to understand?

Don't know whether I should be happy or sad..

Funny? Nope.
Junk? Yeah. Jesus who gives a **** , if anybody makes a religious post it gets -666 thumbs though(I'm not even ******* religious).
#139 to #128 - notnotnot (05/21/2013) [-]
Yea, because science is junk and we should be completely ignorant to it.

I apologize on bahalf of Funnyjunk that we aren't all subscribed to Science Daily, and would not otherwise have received this information.

Yeah but if people are interested in science, there are countless other sites. I came to this site to find some funny stuff to lighten up the day. Not for every week we get scientific advancements that in the broad sense will contribute nothing to us.

**** it. I'm pursuing a degree in science(Undenominated for first year, decide specifically what i want to do next year,) and i can bet a penny to a pound that these discoveries will do very little now or in the future.

Dude, it's seriously one post per week. One post.

And allow me to list the various amazing possibilities that lie within most of these discoveries:

Stem cells: Think of how many cells are within a human fetus. Now compare them, both numerically and ethically, to the number of cells contained in your epidermal layer whilst also considering how absolutely amazing stem cells are for various degenerative diseases.
Global warming: while not overly important, this shows that science in general appears to favor global warming, and given that the scientific community tends to know their **** , this should put things into perspective for various people out there who don't believe in global warming.
Plant Communication: We've gone literally thousands of years not believing that plants can communicate with each other. To find out that they, in fact, can, would be an absolutely astounding biological discovery.
Butterflies: To uncover the mystery of metamorphosis has been quite an issue in the biological community for quite some time. And while I see no further accomplishments to be made from this (which doesn't necessarily discard it because I'm no Biology major), it's still a great thing to know.
Fossils: Ever heard the 'missing link' argument from naysayers of evolution? To provide further evidence to evolution will certainly help us prove evolution to a greater extent and will give us a better idea of where we came from as a species.
Depression: Depression is a condition that's likely affected all of us in some form or another. For the chronically depressed, finding correlations between sleep patterns and mental illness can further help find new, better treatments, which can help these people get better and even curb suicide rates.

In my university if you wish to pursue nearly any general science course you start off your first year doing the 3 main sciences(Biology, Chemistry & Physics) and choose what specific area you want to go from there.

My first year is over and I still don't really know. Anatomy is far and away the most interesting to me but I am told it's rather difficult. Also there's a possibility of doing cancer research but i can't imagine there being a lot of jobs in that area. Either way i think I'll go the route of biology.

Ireland. The west of Ireland to be specific. Tell me, how do you find cancer research to be? I'd imagine there's a rather fulfilling feeling thinking you could potentially be helping such a huge sickness.

Clock genes are genes that govern your circadian rhythm or "body clock". People with depression often have screwy sleep cycles.

Yeah so what? The Earth has been changing temperatures as far as history dates back.

Any ************* remember the ice age?

It was kinda chilly.

That makes no sense at all. The statement that is.

What the **** is clock genes?
User avatar #115 to #113 - seniorawesomesauce (05/20/2013) [-]
They turn you into a clock once you turn around 80. But only 1 in 2,700,00 people have these genes. Why do you think they're called GRANDFATHER clocks?

we should make clocks wear slacks then.

They did all of this work and you couldn't even spell "skin" right.

We need to write less papers about climate change. there are other important issues that deserve more than 3% of our attention.
