Genetically modified flowers glow in the dark

Australian company Bioconst has released a line of genetically modified fluorescent flowers that produce a protein that glow when exposed to a proprietary UV LED

See more here.

If some fine man offers me one of these flourescent flowers I will marry him.

The Hexagon

Hexagons have to be one of my favorite shapes, it’s hard to say why but I just think they’re neat. They have internal angles that add up to 720 or 4 lots of pi for those who prefer radians (everyone). The other neat thing is that the length between a vertex and the one opposite is twice the length of one of the sides in a regular hexagon. This in turn means that hexagons can be constructed from equilateral triangles. The area for a hexagon is given by the formula A=((3√3)/2)t^2 where t is the length of one of the sides, or alternatively simply A=1.5dt where d is the length between parallel sides. The elegant construction discovered by Euclid is also pictured.

Hexagons also pop up a lot in nature, being the shape of honey combs (for it’s space optimizing ability), igneous basalt columns, crystal structures, benzene rings, snow flakes and the clouds on Saturn’s north pole.

I guess I’m the only guy more excited for virtual rapid prototyping than holographic boobies.

Fuckin’ magnets, how do they work?

No, but really, we’re living in the future.

And the guy recording sounds like Jeff Goldblum.
