$10 Bet Brings Researchers Closer to Industrial Scale Graphene Production
From the article:
"Kovtyukhova tried leaving out various agents and found that the oxidizing agent wasn't necessary for the reaction to take place." when using her mixture of acids (without the oxidizing agent) on boron nitride (a compound with a structure similar to graphite).
Then she balked at trying the same mixture on graphite based on "the extensive literature saying that the oxidizing agent was required". Why? Why she tried to remove that frigging agent in the first place then?
I mean: She knew that her technique without the oxidizing agent works on a material similar to graphite. She knew that the oxidizing agent is bad for graphite. Then why insisting on it???

Scientists don't know what will happen to a dolphin getting in the way?
Well, either they explode, or just get their brain squashed. It could be they just become permanently deaf or just scared shitless and swim to the shore to die there.
Either case: they die, who cares which way?

Heartbleed Turned Against Cyber Criminals
I wonder why they didn't patch their system.
Besides the trivial answer that they are incompetent script kiddies, i came up with these:
1 - the site is abandoned
2 - maybe only those who can exploit heartbleed can gain access to the forum (tests for expertise and maintains anonymity)

>Who the hell is threatening US with chemicals?
You answered that question. If the US military is practically sitting on a heap of chemical weapons, then they need proper clothing.
Probably also a good choice of gear if they plan vacation on the Syrian beach.
