Jeez, this was supposed to be a thread about cool science stuff. Like this:

Telescope Tech Will Speed Search for Extraterrestrial Life

Contribute or GTFO
Well, technically speaking, you just said "cool stuff".

Yes, you're right, although it appears that most of those things in our world that tickle wonder bones are science and technology related. I just don't want this thread to devolve into a porn website compendium; that would be a great thread in Open Mic though.

I was just kidding around (I blame Choobus for being the porn enabler).

Seriously, this looks like an outstanding thread, and some of the links that have been posted are awe-inspiring. I look forward to checking them out from home, where I don't have to wait so long for some of these pictures to load.

i think maybe people mistook the title and read wonder boner instead....

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

Well, we all know how tickling your wonder bone can construed. I think ADT came up with it originally.

This is quite cool, if you like balls

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

This is a cool link of incredible photographs (saw it at Pharyngula).

Awesome! I've gotten bored with this.

Seriously, Choobus, you of all people could post something, here in the science forum, that would be a delight to all.
Yeah, Choobus, what about all that dark matter that is so ugly even its own universe finds it repulsive and tries to escape from it accelerating in all directions?

Is there some site that gives more than the ordinary details about the formation of heavy elements so that we do not have to believe God poofed them all into existence?

What of your own research into the degradation of aluminum foil in proximity to high vacuum equipment? Does crinkled foil really hold a vacuum better than stabilized Silly Putty<tm> (Silicone grease)? [forum local reference]
