Stay out of MY inner-tubes, or, WHERE has that robot been, anyway?

I’m no stranger to the colonoscopal experience, given my personal and family history, and I’ve often wondered if there is another way, so to speak, that is more than virtual, but less than what I’ve gone through more times than I’d like to admit. So, when I read about robot colonoscopies, my interest was piqued. But when I read the following…

researchers are developing self-propelling probes that crawl inside the colon and grip its sides with the aid of sticky films.

the old school colonoscopy didn’t seem so horrid. The movie Alien was scary enough with aliens popping OUT..don’t think I want em’ crawling in, thank you very much.

Filed under weird science, where could it be now

“if you leave the cave looking like that, you’ll be responsible for what happens to you’

Turns out that neanderthals could actually talk. Scientists recently discovered that neanderthal man contained the FOXP2 gene which apparently implies speech. So, not only could they talk, they started distorting the cave news far earlier than we ever imagined. Eventually , men were berated for not wearing small rocks signifying their cave loyalty.

I still don’t wanna see these guys on TV…
