Im in my first year of my chemistry education.
I have to do a 15-20 minutes presentation about a science related object with two biomedical students and one biobased tech student. I was under the impression i had another 2 weeks but its monday. And because the other 3 are complete tools i have to come up with a subject and make the entire presentation on my own


Anybody has any ideas?
Or can somebody give me a link to the post with science in 2014 summed up, so i can pick a subject?

Hope you did well lmao

Synthetic biology - creation of novel organisms from a registry of standardised parts to solve environmental and industrial problems. Check out the igem competition: a challenge to invent a microorganism that solves a problem in a unique way. I saw one where a team used their biobrick to reverse eutrophication in a lake which was pretty neat.

that has potential.

I'll have to dumb it down for the other 3 tho. I hate to do all the work on my own but one of those is a 6.4/10 girl, and i have about 1,2% chance of hitting that.

I like those odds

I've done presentations on the subject before and I usually resorted to describing it as 'genetic engineering from scratch'. If you decide to do it feel free to drop me a question or two
User avatar #3736 to #3735 - lotengo (01/01/2015) [-]
i already got a headace.

Its 19:20 over here, im gonna try to fall asleep soon, i need little sleep so i should be able to get out of bed at 4 am and work out an entire presentation.

I'l look into your thing, thnx

Do we have the technology to kill people with our mind yet?
User avatar #3727 to #3726 - iridium (01/01/2015) [-]
We have the biotechnology created through evolution and inputted into our minds to conceive of a device that can kill another man which we use in order to fulfill that purpose.

I don't think so in the way you're thinking of, like telekinesis, but we have invented devices that react to stuff in our head, so it's theoretically possible to design a weapon that requires no trigger but still fires.

where does the water go from the droughts people are having? wouldnt it just come back as rain? could all the water be coming back as rain into the warm parts of the ocean and with all that extra water be raising the water level and pushing the warm water north making the artic ice melt?
User avatar #3734 to #3723 - nimba (01/01/2015) [-]
Evaporation is a factor but so is low rainfall in the first place. As for the water moving I have a feeling that ocean currents are more complex than that, though I don't know.
User avatar #3752 to #3734 - luigipimp (01/02/2015) [-]
but wouldnt the evaporated water go somewhere where it rained a lot? and i figured with the water currents, like if you kept adding warm water to a cold pool.

there doesn't seem to be a good board to ask this

was there a word the aztecs/native americans had for a person?
User avatar #3722 to #3719 - iridium (12/31/2014) [-]
Native Americans? You realize there are a shit ton of native american languages right?

Anyways, I googled some Aztec languages and one existing one is Nahuatl. There's a dictionary: whp.uoregon.edu/dictionaries/nahuatl/index.lasso
#3724 to #3722 - ronjeremysweiner (12/31/2014) [-]
thanks this is like what i was looking for
what i searched might have been too specific

User avatar #3709 to #3708 - yodaiam ONLINE (12/29/2014) [-]
A vagina

User avatar #3711 to #3710 - yodaiam ONLINE (12/29/2014) [-]
they come from a vagina
User avatar #3714 to #3711 - luigipimp (12/29/2014) [-]
thats not very magical
User avatar #3715 to #3714 - yodaiam ONLINE (12/30/2014) [-]
That's because you've only been in one
User avatar #3716 to #3715 - luigipimp (12/30/2014) [-]
no, i wanted a magical answer. like a leprechaun lays a egg when it finds more gold for its pot and a vagina hatches from it

so, what does fj know about space?
User avatar #3848 to #3705 - alltimetens (01/12/2015) [-]
I'd say my knowledge of space is above-average.

But the more you know about a field (astronomy, in particular), the more you realize how puny your knowledge is. Basically, the more you know, the less you think you know.

Astronomy is truly a humbling field, even though it's just a side-hobby for me.

Well I don't like studying Astronomy because I feel much of it serves little purpose, but I know the basics.
User avatar #3712 to #3705 - xtwinblade (12/29/2014) [-]
Quite much. Studied theoretical astrophysics for 4 years.

I'd appreciate it if you sent me this via PM rather than mention me on the /science/ board.

I've already taken care of it. Thanks, anyway.

Yeah. I suppose it doesn't matter.

Still, thank you for deleting your comment. I apologize if posting those links here bothered you.

Also I know that feel bro. Half of high school trig was like that.

scientists have mapped jewish DNA sequence and found that not only are their Khazar ancestry claims totaly false. it also shows that most jews are inbred due to centuries of marrying first cousins and other close relatives. no wonder they want to interbreed with whites. their genetic code is seriously flawed!

A rock can have the same amount of up and down quarks as you. So you could say that you are a rock but with a different arrangement of spin up quarks, down quarks, and other elementary particles. What's so special about me when I'm just a different arrangement of particles? So because I have a different arrangement of particles than a rock, all of this meaning nonsense applies to me? Nice logic.
