10 ways DNA can ruin your life

10. You could get a mutation in your DNA from sun damage, smoking, or just plain living.

9. You inherited faulty DNA (disease-causing gene).

8. Your DNA matches the DNA found at a crime scene.

7. The prosecution withheld DNA test results from your defense attorneys.

6. Your DNA didn’t match the DNA of the person who you thought was your parent.

5. The results from your Y-DNA genealogy test showed that you were missing the DSY464 marker which means you’re infertile and…your daughter is not your daughter.

4. The wrong person’s DNA was found in your husband’s underwear.

3. You donated sperm anonymously but your offspring tracked you down anyway using genealogy DNA testing.

2. Terrorists alter the DNA in bacteria to create bioweapons and perpetrate mass genetic bioviolence on us all.

1. You make DNA and all things related to DNA your life.

Leonardo - right to left


Leonardo wrote in Italian using a special kind of shorthand that he invented himself. People who study his notebooks have long been puzzled by something else, however. He usually used "mirror writing", starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left. Only when he was writing something intended for other people did he write in the normal direction.

word scrambler

There's an email that's been floating around for a while, where the words are scrambled. As long as you don't think about the words as you're reading them, you can read it just fine. The trick is, the first and last letters stay the same, and only the inner letters get scrambled. Your brain reads individual words, not letters.

Men are from Google
Women are form Yahoo

On the Internet, as in life, men and women have different motivations for doing what they do. According to a recent report from Pew Internet and American Life, women view the Internet as a place to extend, support, and nurture relationships and communities. Men tend to see it as an office, a library, or a playground.

Women are more likely to use the Internet for emailing, getting maps and directions, looking for health and medical information, seeking support for health and personal problems, and getting religious information.

Men are more likely to use the Internet to check the weather, get news, find do-it-yourself information, acquire sports scores and information, look for political information, do job-related research, download software, download music, use a webcam, and take a class.


Partial charges of hydrogen bonding give water its remarkable sticky and elastic properties on display. The surface tension of the water droplet above the coin shapes a seemingly impossible, yet beautiful and almost magical form. The droplet clings on to the edges of the metal until the intermolecular forces are no longer strong enough to resist the force of gravity.

the headless cockroach

Cockroaches are infamous for their tenacity, and are often cited as the most likely survivors of a nuclear war. Some even claim that they can live without their heads. It turns out that these armchair exterminators (and their professional brethren) are right. Headless roaches are capable of living for weeks.

To understand why cockroaches—and many other insects—can survive decapitation, it helps to understand why humans cannot, explains physiologist and biochemist Joseph Kunkel at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who studies cockroach development. First off, decapitation in humans results in blood loss and a drop in blood pressure hampering transport of oxygen and nutrition to vital tissues. “You’d bleed to death,” Kunkel notes. In addition, humans breathe through their mouth or nose and the brain controls that critical function, so breathing would stop. Moreover, the human body cannot eat without the head, ensuring a swift death from starvation should it survive the other ill effects of head loss.

But cockroaches do not have blood pressure the way people do. “They don’t have a huge network of blood vessels like that of humans, or tiny capillaries that you need a lot of pressure to flow blood through,” Kunkel says. “They have an open circulatory system, which there’s much less pressure in. After you cut their heads off, very often their necks would seal off just by clotting,” he adds. “There’s no uncontrolled bleeding.”

Joseph Priestley online

Joseph Priestley discovered oxygen. Noting its effectiveness in sparking combustion, he called the gas 'dephlogisticated air.' Joseph Priestley (1733 - 1804) was a British natural philosopher, clergyman, political theorist, theologian, and educator.

Priestley described the new substance he discovered as five or six times better than common air for the purpose of respiration, inflammation, and, I believe, every other use of common atmospherical air.

After testing the air on a mouse and finding, surprisingly, that it lived after breathing the new air, Priestley tried it on himself and recorded: The feeling of it to my lungs was not sensibly different from that of common air; but I fancied that my breast felt peculiarly light and easy for some time afterwards. Who can tell but that, in time, this pure air may become a fashionable article in luxury.
