    This is what I wanted to know. If Alec Baldwin is more evolved than Stephen Baldwin, why is there still a Stephen Baldwin?

    This thread is awesome.

    Some youtube clips about stuff that interests me:

    Hydrothermal vents - a really fascinating deep sea ecosystem.

    Parasites = awesome (Cordyceps)

    Also lately I have been doing a lot of reading on bird/dinosaur evolution & phylogeny. *geek alert geek alert*

    Goodbye CA.org. We can just hook up the masters to a chip and download their knowledge to our brains.

    I'm convinced that Ted Talks might be the best thing to happen to the internet. Or at least the best thing to happen to youtube.

    The other day i remember hearing about this on the news, but totally forgot till today basically free learning of some MIT courses on the web for free with course notes, videos, and audio.

    "MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity."

    OCW link http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm

    If you are semi-serious about science, you should buy a science textbook of the field of your liking. If you read something you don't understand, you look at the index of your textbook, then your find that chapter that talks about it. That way your get a answers from a verified source. Most people I know like to sell their textbook for a measly profit, which is not worth the loss of knowledge by far. Books are like an extension of your brain, with a slower stimulus (because you have to read), but at least the knowledge will not fade with your memory.
