So you know how you should always finish a prescribed course of antibiotics because otherwise you are contributing to the spread of antibiotic-resistant organisms?

Yeah ... nope.

Rule that patients must finish antibiotics course is wrong, study says

With things like TB, it still applies. But for most uses of antibiotics, you should stop when you feel better, and taking more results not so much in resistant versions of the bug that was originally making you sick, but resistant versions of the common E coli, Staph aureus, etc strains that we all have in our skin or gut all the time.

Cites (full article) The antibiotic course has had its day | The BMJ

Which includes
Quote:
Concern that giving too little antibiotic treatment could select for antibiotic resistance can be traced back to the dawn of the antibiotic era. When Howard Florey’s team treated Albert Alexander’s staphylococcal sepsis with penicillin in 1941 they eked out all the penicillin they had (around 4 g, less than one day’s worth with modern dosing) over four days by repeatedly recovering the drug from his urine. When the drug ran out, the clinical improvement they had noted reversed and he subsequently succumbed to his infection. There was no evidence that this was because of resistance, but the experience may have planted the idea that prolonged therapy was needed to avoid treatment failure.

Do they have to make it look like something you might see in a futuristic JRPG or anime? It's like they pursued this design on purpose.

Its amazing how the government space programs invent what has been fantasied about by authors.

Arthur C Clark fantasied satellites years before NASA invented them ...

That is nothing: Asimov did all this fantasy-ing about portable computers long before they stopped being building-sized! He fantasied all about it fantasyly.

Amazing how now we all have to pretend phones and laptops are computers when really the information is beamed in from a massive mainframe buried in the center of the earth and run by Illuminati to keep the masses docile.

Apple in particular has gone to some lengths to making sure their portable devices aren't usable for anything but premade apps - striking down things like scripting languages - which is almost as bad.

This has to be the most beautiful fossil I have ever seen:

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/201.../#.WYRBIojyscU

I mean look at the frikking detail on that thing! It's entire head is preserved wonderfully, down to the frikking eyeballs. The guy who discovered it must have thought he died and went to heaven.

He is an article I remembered from a while ago about the rock.

They explain a bit more how the 'fossil' is 'created'. lol

OK this is new.

We all know that the heavier atoms in our bodies and everything around us were created in stars (What Does It Mean To Be 'Star Stuff'?).

But quite a bit of it could have come from other galaxies.

We are all made of stars: half our bodies' atoms 'formed beyond the Milky Way' | Science | The Guardian

Quote:
Nearly half of the atoms that make up our bodies may have formed beyond the Milky Way and travelled to the solar system on intergalactic winds driven by giant exploding stars, astronomers claim.

The dramatic conclusion emerges from computer simulations that reveal how galaxies grow over aeons by absorbing huge amounts of material that is blasted out of neighbouring galaxies when stars explode at the end of their lives.
Operative words being "may have" and "computer simulations", but it's still pretty cool.

- familiar spiral galaxy shape starts to appear towards the end
