I got this. This is a reference to a joke where two scientists go into a bar, one of them orders H2O which is the molecular formula for water while the other says "I'll have some H2O too" which sounds like "I'll have some H2O2" which is the molecular formula for hydrogen peroxide which is toxic. So the second scientist dies.

i appreciate the bone tossing, also i've been doing similar stuff on other content.. anywho Louis Jacques Thénard discovered it in 1818 when he threw in some barium peroxide and nitric acid. He later improved this by adding sulfuric acid to hydrochloric acid (which precipitates the barium sulfate byproduct.). His way for manufacturing 2(HO) was used until the 20th century, until they improved upon it by using ammonium bisulfate. However, now they take the elements and use thermodynamics to create it just from hydrogen and oxygen. This was a problem because doing this usually would want to become water instead (because less energy is required) However, in '05 some German technicians developed a minute (nanometer-size) phase-controlled noble metal crystal particles on carbon support, which acts as a catalyst to make 2(HO) instead of H2O. Louis was a teacher, and a obviously a chemist. He (like most 19th century scientists) liked playing around with ****, and one day he discovered 2(HO) he also did a profound research paper on bile.Louis was a cool scientist, and actually got his name inscribed on the Eiffel tower, along with 71 other people. Finally he deveolped a pigment known as Thernard's blue, as a cheap coloring agent, because Jean-Antoine-Claude Chaptal wanted him to. Thernard's blue is also more commonly known as cobalt blue, a coloring option on the Jeep Wrangler, and the color of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sorry for the delay, I was busy, definitely not being emotionally distraught over the HIMYM finale.

Anyway, where do I even begin on how water can be used as a weapon? What weapon in mother nature's arsenal can even come close to the sheer destructive force of water? Over the course of human history, nothing except for maybe disease, has killed as many people as tsunamis, floods, and the ocean have.

And that's just the earth alone. Humans can be far more intricate with water. Perhaps the simplest and most savage way to kill with water is to shove someones face underwater, or take a pointy icicle and shove it through their jugular. And then in the civil rights period south, police were fond of using fire hoses to give a quick bath to disgruntled citizens who happened to have more melanin in their skin than others. Steam could also be used as a weapon, provided you can get close enough to somebody to turn their face into a reenactment of the Nazis in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I have heard of new research trying to use sound waves to pulse water forcefully enough to cause damage, but I don't know where they are on that. I guess it depends on where you draw the line, how much of the weapon has to be water based for it to count?

Exactly. I'm also making content teaching some topics in biology. Next content is going to be on genetics if I can figure out how to use GIMP to make panels.

And do you use GIMP 2, because if so, panels are pretty easy to make on it

(04/01/2014) [-]
Well first I'm going to be covering the basics (what is a gene, mitosis and meiosis, punnett squares etc.) then I will do recombination and genetic linkage, then a short one on constructing a genetic map. After that I'll do transcription and then cloning. Also yes I use GIMP 2.

You might as well through replication and translation there as well. I know that back when I made those videos, people found transcription easier to understand once they understood DNA replication in the molecular level.

Also, if you plan on making educational videos, I suggest using camtasia, but if you want to stick to picture panels, then you could still use gimp.

Just hit file-new, pick the dimensions of the background and set it as transparent. Make the separate pictures that you want to use as a slide separately, and insert them as layers. This helps if you want to add some nice effects to the pictures.

Another thing I recommend, is using pyMol (you should be able to get the educational one with You need to login to view this link e-mail address). I used it a lot back when I took Biophysics and it's awesome for 3D molecular rendering.

Its nice to see people who like biology as much as I do on here

Oh of course replication and translation will be covered. I touch on it in the first content but I'll cover it more fully when I talk about the differences between eukaryotic genes and prokaryotic genes. I'm thinking of making comics. I may do videos later but not quite yet. I use pyMol all the time! It's ridiculously useful for modelling proteins.

Yeah, sorry about that. I kinda took the general biology name. So are you currently doing any research? I always like talking about stuff in the other fields of biology. I'm a biochemist and I'm currently doing research on Anastatica.

oh thats fine man, I doubt I'd have had the time to explain things on here anyway. Plus you probably know a ton more about it then I do seeing as I'm only on the first actual year of my master's.

But yeah I'm currently working with Absidia corymbifera vs. certain strains of bacteria and Gauses's exlusion principle, though I'm beginning to notice that it the fungus isn't just out-competing the bacteria in the dishes, it might be producing some kind of antibiotic and killing them, because every time I try to isolate bacteria in the dish, I can't find any. But I haven't had the time to look further into it and design an experiment to determine whether thats true or not. Plus I don't have any funding at the moments so it's been delayed.

And nice, you got to travel. What are you working on?

That sounds like a lot of fun. During my masters I looked rhododendron responses to topology. It was dull. In the small amount of time I worked on microorganisms I remember so many things going wrong. I once had a mixture of gram negative rods and gram positive cocci collected from a sample. The first week went well, the streak plates had all that was expected but the second week when we isolated them in different types of agar the gram positive cocci has just vanished. Wasn't even in regular nutrient agar. Anyway, I'm currently expanding on the work of Friedman et. al. on the drought tolerance of Anastatica hierochuntica, pretty much doing the same thing just with better equipment.
