Wonder Bone II

C'mon, people! Let's post some really cool shit. Stuff that makes you go "Wow!", or gets you to think and wonder about how much greater this world is than a bunch of old texts from long-dead nomads would have you believe. What tickles your wonder bone? For me, it's stuff like this:

How about this....

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.

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]

Ahhh...those are very Holy sites. They make me fall on my knees contemplating the sacred garden of heavenly delights where floating gods resurrect at the mind command, in supplication ready to do the penance of penetration at the sight of caves..of one direction mind you. It is best when both do the sacred test, depositing in altars of both kinds the exuding liquid of the stars, been absorbed by both in supplication expecting the vibrant god to sooth in adoration the welcoming warmth of the anointed one.

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

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

Telescope Tech Will Speed Search for Extraterrestrial Life

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.
