2014 Orionid Meteor Shower - Sunset Solar Eclipse

Waking up before sunrise is a good way to get a head start on the day. On Oct. 21st, waking up before sunrise could stop you in your tracks. Blame Halley’s Comet. Every year in mid-to-late October, Earth passes through a stream of dusty debris from Comet Halley, and the pre-dawn sky can light up with a pretty display of shooting stars.

Sunsets are always pretty. One sunset this month could be out of this world. On Thursday, Oct. 23rd, the setting sun across eastern parts of the USA will be red, beautiful and … crescent-shaped. "It's a partial solar eclipse," explains longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak. In other words, the New Moon is going to 'take a bite' out of the sun.

Even though it is a partial eclipse, DO NOT look directly at it, use dark filters made for viewing an eclipse or project an image through your telescope.

Ah...The joys of procreation.
You would be mostly correct Bill, this one still has its wits about itself.

Study reveals sugar-filled soda ages you just like smoking does

Quote:
Before you crack that next can of soda, you might want to think again. The results are in on a study that followed 5,309 adults for 14 years to see what, if any effect drinking sugary soda had on aging. The study conducted by University of California professor Elissa Epel indicates that high sugar consumption may result in increased aging in the same way regular smoking does.

After analyzing the data, researchers found that people who drank one 8-oz serving per day (i.e. less than a standard 12-oz can) resulted in 1.9 years of additional aging. Consuming 20-oz each day caused about 4.6 extra years of aging, which the authors are keen to point out is the same seen in studies of smoking. Epel arrived at these estimates by tracking the length of telomeres in the participants’ cells.

A telomere is a region of repeating nucleic acid at the end of each chromosome (the white caps below) in the nucleus of your cells. It’s basically extra DNA that doesn’t code for anything and is attached to your important DNA–the stuff that codes for proteins needed to run your cells. The purpose of a telomere is to buffer your genes against loss from the dense environment inside the cell, and also when DNA is replicated. It really all comes down to cell division (mitosis), which is what keeps the biological machine going. You can probably guess how this relates to aging.

Troll Science
I thought this idea was pretty funny. Probably one of the very few 4chan memes worth porting over to SevenForums, as it isn't TOTALLY stupid (also doesn't contain offensive images). The idea is to post science scenarios that would never work but have some logic in how it might work. Troll Science...
