Phrenology Enjoys Resurgence in Popularity

Phrenology Enjoys Resurgence in Popularity 5 votes / 5 Stars Phrenology, which is defined as a pseudoscience primarily focused on measurements of the human skull, has long been debunked.  That fact hasn’t stopped a group of hard-core believers from reviving it and making a play for science text books.  Several people who describe themselves as ‘modern phrenologists’ are bringing the science back into the forefront of psychological debate.  They claim that the science was dismissed before it got a fair shake, and before modern equipment could bear it out as a real science. Two prominent Phrenologists, Bernard Hollander and Paul Bouts, had sons.  Their sons, ironically named Paul Hollander and Bernard Bouts, have decided to collect and compile the works of their fathers, combine them with ...

Sewer Rats in Los Angeles Becoming Sentient

Sewer Rats in Los Angeles Becoming Sentient 4 votes / 5 Stars LOS ANGELES, California – Recent findings by scientists studying the rat problem in Los Angeles are frightening, as well as exciting.  Sewer rats have started to exhibit signs of organized behavior and advanced communication.  The rats have surprised those studying them by creating governmental systems, and identifying enemies.  As it turns out, the rats have elected leaders and developed rudimentary political systems.  It seems that the factions are similar to human political parties, and this has caused some scientists to speculate that the roots of democracy are in mammalian DNA. Some rats favor limited government and others favor strong and bulky government, but both sides seem to hate ...

Chimps and Monkeys Skipping Straight From Stone Age to Information Age

Chimps and Monkeys Skipping Straight From Stone Age to Information Age 7 votes / 5 Stars It’s recently been revealed that certain apes and monkeys have achieved the feat of making and using stone tools.  This occurs primarily only in places where stones are readily available such as the jungles of the Ivory Coast in Africa.  That’s only half the story, however.  Researchers at Yale University’s monkey lab have successfully taught capuchin monkeys how to use money.  The monkeys, after learning how to use money, even trade their currency for sex. Even more surprising, once the monkeys learn how to trade money for goods and services, a surprising trend emerges.  They have figured out how to use the Internet to ...

Hand Sanitizer: Does It Make You Clean?

Hand Sanitizer: Does It Make You Clean? 4 votes / 5 Stars MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Hand sanitizer has quickly become the most popular way to wash our hands after using the restroom. It drys on its own and kills 99.9% of all bacteria. You can bring it with you anywhere, and not have to use a public restrooms bottle that may have been tampered with.  It all appears to be a win-win.  Unfortunately we all need to ask a simple question before feeling too comforted about our post restroom grooming.  When we grab the doorknob to leave are we sanitizing the door, or are we dirtying our hands again? According to Dr. Nassier Gravihk we are completing what he calls ...

Angry Thoughts Contribute to Global Warming

Angry Thoughts Contribute to Global Warming 6 votes / 4.83 Stars Have you ever been so mad that your body heats up, your face turns red, and you start to shout? We have all been there and acted out as if there were no consequences. Oh, how wrong we all were as new studies from the prestigious Wellington Institute of Climate Change and Survival have suggested.
