misce stultitiam consiliis brevem


Who doesn’t love science of the future? Today I’m linking to 7 Man-Made Substances that Laugh in the Face of Physics, which mentions several things which we are now able to create. Granted, most of them are still only produced in limited quantity rather than being ready for mass-market. And at least one (non-Newtonian fluids) I remember making myself as a kid out of flour and water. But overall, it gave me that thrill of reality catching up to science fiction. I love it when science advances sufficiently.

    While you’re on the site, also do a search for the phrase “too badass.” The first article hit will be “7 Images Too Badass to Be Real (That Totally Are).” I hadn’t remembered that was the location of the Badass Images article, but the style of the flavortext for the Man-Made Substances was a dead give-away (i.e. it made me laugh silently until tears stood in my eyes).

    Here’s another great non-Newtonian fluids demonstration:
