Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!

NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.
SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.

the structure or energy of the water

what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice

the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about

Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:

Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.

it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it

…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.
(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)

Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.

I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.

This movement causes friction

That’s not what friction is.

It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

Let’s take these one at a time.
Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)
Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.

things that are not found in nature

What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.
Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.
PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.
LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.

This was incredibly amusing to read. Thank you so much for sciencing.

This fucking blog actually said “microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.” like that’s some sort of terrible thing, when that’s literally how things get hot.I can’t fucking breathe. This shit is incredible. Absolutely fucking incredible.

Science. Sweet science.

i love when anti-science bullshit gets beat the fuck down

Good job, science side of tumblr!

Science side of Tumblr is what happens when you give science permission to freely express its exasperation with stupid.

Oh look, another piece of shit misinformation debunked by actual science again.

guys what do hostages do if they have to pee really badly

like do the bad guys let you have toilet breaks or escort you to the loo

My cousin was held for 36 hours by the Gulf cartel. He said they were pretty chill about bathroom breaks.

I want more to that story

My dad’s uncle was a part of the American Communist party in the 1960s. Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for him, and he was interrogated by the FBI for 24 hours. They still let him go to the loo, but only if he took 30 seconds or less, and did it into a vacuum container because they were simultaneously testing new toilets for NASA and wanted to see the effect on the urethral orifice. They found it convenient to take prisoners for testing, and my uncle just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

By the “not all men” logic, Russian Roulette is a perfectly safe game to play. Sure, one of the chambers has a bullet in it…

but not all chambers

By the ‘skittles’ logic conversely, it is perfectly okay to discriminate racially because some blacks/asians/hispanics happen to steal and pillage.

But it’s still perfectly okay to discriminate when it comes to certain groups, right?

We should be fighting against rape, not an arbitrary group of people.

things that make sense in physics

  • inclined plane
  • pulley
  • screw

things that should not be working but do anyway

  • a gun firing even though there is no power source
  • fridge making things cold when its power source is…

- very large force of superheated expanding gas in small pocket caused by ignition of compacted gunpowder via percussive latch

- the electricity is used to power the pump that compresses the air. that compressed air then loses its heat to the surrounding air, and then re-expands much colder. make this a closed loop and BAM heat engine

- shit man, idk

(in general, magnetism from electric currents is devised from a relativistic correction to moving electric fields, and magnetism from standing magnets has to do with aligning the spins of the atoms within the material something something quantum mechanics I really should review my undergrad notes)

- days are actually slightly longer than 24 hours. every rotation around the sun is roughly 365 years and 6 hours long, so to resync up with the sun we add an extra day every fourth year (6*4=24)

- animals don’t use lenguaje to communicate, son. (in the sense that we understand lenguaje)

- simple conic megaphone redirects sound forward, instead of radially outward. more sound in one direction makes it very loud in that direction and very quiet in all the other directions. because sound is just (kinetic) energy acting on the air and changing its local density, it’s just redirecting the sonic energy forward instead of radially outward.

Oops someone got science’d.

So, there’s this girl. She’s tragically orphaned and richer than anyone on the planet. Every guy she meets falls in love with her, but in between torrid romances she rejects them all because she dedicated to what is Pure and Good. She has genius level intellect, Olympic-athelete level athletic ability and incredible good looks. She is consumed by terrible angst, but this only makes guys want her more. She has no superhuman abilities, yet she is more competent than her superhuman friends and defeats superhumans with ease. She has unshakably loyal friends and allies, despite the fact she treats them pretty badly. They fear and respect her, and defer to her orders. Everyone is obsessed with her, even her enemies are attracted to her. She can plan ahead for anything and she’s generally right with any conclusion she makes. People who defy her are inevitably wrong.

God, what a Mary Sue.

I just described Batman.

I think it’s more about presentation than it is about listing qualities vs. non qualities. Even the Mary Sue litmus test pointed this out - while the Sandman scored a whopping 70, he was a well balanced character who flowed well with the narrative.

It’s all about a good balanced portrayal of a character and how well this fits into themes you want to portray. If the character is not egregious, then they pass. If they are, whether they are female or male, they will call you out on it.

Someone somehow put a patent on the MMSE. That means you legally have to pay $4 for every MMSE you give to a patient. WHYYYYY?

What. The MMSE isn’t even the best diagnostic test of dementia. MOCA’s the way to go. 

If they think they’re going to make money, they’re wrong.

" i want a 6’3 boy "
bitch you need a job

have a seat

men have preferences out the ass
"i want a girl with big boobs, thick thighs, a big ass, a tiny waist, long hair, no makeup, preferably a mix a mix between beyonce and a kardashian"

a woman has a preference, yet suddenly she’s an unemployed bitch

fuck outta here with this bullshit this post is trash 

breaking news everyone has preferences and apparently that’s off limits but arbitrarily so depending on the time of day
