Fossil Daddy Longlegs Sports a 99-Million-Year Erection

quote [ Unlike male spiders and scorpions, which use modified legs to transfer sperm to females in tidy packets, most harvestmen like H. grimaldii have honest-to-goodness penises, which they insert into genital openings next to the females' mouthparts. ]

Its always fascinating to me what parts of nature have penises and what parts do not. Most birds for example, do not; although the duck's dick more than makes up for it.

How Do We Know When to Pee?

quote [ The human bladder is, at the most basic level, a stretchy bag. To fill to capacity?a volume of 400 to 500 milliliters (about 2 cups) of urine in most healthy adults?it must undergo one of the most extreme expansions of any organ in the human body, expanding roughly sixfold from its wrinkled, empty state. ]

When I dream that I have to pee, I know it's time to wake the hell up and go to the bathroom. The older I've gotten, the more that happens.

quote [ A planet thought to orbit the star 40 Eridani A?host to Mr. Spock's fictional home planet, Vulcan, in the "Star Trek" universe?is really a kind of astronomical illusion caused by the pulses and jitters of the star itself, a new study shows. ]

The Longest-Running Laboratory Experiment In The World Is Streaming Live Right Now

quote [ The experiment takes so long, two of the people running it died before seeing a drop. ]

Remember seeing this on a school trip to the science museum, the person in charge spun a story about how no one had ever seen it drop at the time how there were ghost stories and wild nights with storms.

Impush young me suggested a camera and he said that was in the planning stages.
