MRI Magnets Cause Nystagmus

Kratisto Re:Weird (120 comments)

Nope. There's even some cool experiments involving magnetic manipulation of the brain. Check out the God Helmet (of course, there's some controversy over this one and it looks like sketchy science, but I think it still demonstrates that EM fields can have biological effects).

The Vending Machines of the Future

Kratisto Re:Martini (216 comments)

I went to Japan a couple years ago and did quite a bit of cycling around Tsukuba. Pocari Sweat is like their Gatorade. It tastes fine at first, but the more you drink it, the more it actually tastes like sweat. By the end of a long day, you might as well be ringing out your shirt.

Actually, the pace of the heart is set by the SA node. The brainstem and other factors can make the heart beat faster or slower in response to stress, but the heart paces itself.

Utah Attorney General Tweets Execution Order

Kratisto cool strawman, dude (556 comments)

Twitter isn't the only form of electronic communication. It is, however, the most asinine and informal. I wouldn't want the news of my upcoming demise originating from the same site responsible for informing millions that Lance Armstrong woke up and is preparing a delicious sandwich.

Supermassive Black Holes Can Abort Star Formation

Kratisto Re:Will this radiation sweep over the rim (67 comments)

That's pretty far away, and radiation strength decays with an inverse square relationship to distance. I'd like to think we're safe.

What Chernobyl Looks Like In 2010

Kratisto Re:***Spot The Zombie*** (413 comments)

There are no zombies in that picture. If there were, I'd have zeroed in on the two glowing points of light watching me patiently and hungrily from the shadows immediately.

Hubble Builds 3D Dark Matter Map

Kratisto Re:Could someone explain... (177 comments)

You could do it based on movement speeds. Things in the background of an image move slower than those in the midground when you change your position--If the thing in the background, a galaxy or something, moves in a strange way, then you can be sure it's being lensed. I'm not sure if the Earth moves enough for this to be useful, though, given the scale.
