Reefer Madness Perhaps Not So Mad After All:
Now I know the stoner-crowd has a rep for being a bunch of hippie-dropouts who will use just about any pseudoscience available to defend their habit.

Because they want their drugs and that’s all there is to it. -Munchies be damned.

Well buckle-up Amanda Bynes, because !SCIENCE! just dropped one of the dankest jams in-favor of THC since the invention of the cannabinoid-receptor 600 million years ago.

(not counting any of the Magnum Opuses by Messrs. Cheech & Chong)…

We’ve all been there once or twice. No time for anything; even the AM-Jumpstart.

The morning coffee is a ritual, a checkin with yourself, and also the crucial happenings down at the passive-aggressively-staffed local café.

But sometimes you either had a night out, a night in, Jason-Bourne-grade post-drunk-amnesia, or you’re just running terribly late.

Well Nootrobox is about to solve all only one or two of those problems with their magical new Brain-Dyn-O-Mite: Go Cubes!…

Move Over, Ted Williams’ Head! -Frankenstein Lives! Doctors Given Permission To Reanimate Dead Brains



What Could Possibly Go Wrong?:
We tend to think that people with a certain level of severe brain injuries or dysfunction are gone & officially Brain Dead.

And though miraculous stories like “Finding Emilie” point to some type of survival even in a “Locked-In” scenario,

Past a certain threshold of function was considered, perhaps for mercy’s sake, the end of the line.

Well, in what just might be some of the most ethically-sketchy experiments not done by world-war totalitarians, a few doctors decided to test that hypothesis.

Timothy Leary Was Right:
Across history, many people have turned to psychoactive substances for a variety of reasons; many times to effect a deeper change instead of just a temporary high.

Among that list of “shamanistic” drugs like Salvia, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca and DMT, LSD has always been the good-old standby.

Now SCIENCE! is discovering it’s not just for stoners & dropouts. LSD and its siblings may actually rewire the brain and in the process, also fix some other problems.

And a recent brain-imaging study by The Imperial College of London is showing us how…

An Old Spectre Returns, Bearing Unexpected Gifts:
So forever you’ve been told that Steaming is the healthiest way to go for vegetables.

-And that anything other than the pyrotechnic-majesty of outdoor-grilling was nutritional-suicide. Maybe oven-roasting was a close second.

And so far, we’ve thought the experts were right.

Well some new experts have chimed in on an old bogeyman-cooking-method, and there is some light [if-qualified] at the end of the tunnel for that old health-nemesis: Deep Fat Frying…

Video: Man Vs. Nature, Reloaded. -FIGHT!! German Nuts Explain The Coming Antibiotic Apocalypse, In A Nutshell


 
A Famous Man Once Said, “We Create Our Own Demons”:
In this video, Kurzgesagt, or “In-A-Nutshell” talks about the future of antibiotics and a few of the problems that are already beginning.

In a very Matrix-y reversal of what’s going on into an idea, they say it this way: Most of Humanity right now is collaborating on the engineering of a Superbug.

And if we don’t change in several ways, the consequences of our actions will let Nature’s worst machines win…

Multiply Paula Deen and Wilford Brimley To The Power Of Ricky Bobby:

Cheap Tech = Future Cures:
Ok, so what do you get when you add entrepreneurial prospecting, big data, big analytics, high-speed robo-testing and gene-sequencing?

So earlier, we told you that for the Jet-Lag drug, UCSD used a robotic tester on 120,000 possible switches to find only 3 keys.

And before that, 23&Me had used its pattern-sniffers to come up with 15 indicators out of 14 Million to find night owls & early-birds.

Well, 23&Me will be at that game again soon to create the very future of medicine…
