Stories tend to be about Dipper, Mabel, and Stan, most of them set in an imaginary second summer in Gravity Falls. There are also "The Big Con," which brings the GF crowd into the real world, where they enter a Masquerade at a convention, hoping to win first place, "Trans Pacifica," which has a hilarious ending, and "A Taste of Ashes," which is surprisingly moving at times and reads like one of the darker episodes.
But it may shock you that some of the most mundane, everyday concepts are as big a mystery to scientists as they are to the average toddler.
So obviously sleep must serve a key purpose for all living things, right? Well, it turns out science doesn't have a clue. Getty That's why science sits outside your room every night, watching. Continue Reading Below Advertisement What we have is a handful of proposed explanations for sleep that not many scientists can agree on.
There's the theory that it's helping the brain clean house after a long day of learning. You see, your brain is constantly generating new pathways thanks to all the stuff that you see and do all day, so sleeping is when all the useless info gets tossed out.
Or maybe, instead of ditching the stuff that's not necessary, the brain might be reinforcing the stuff you do need. Scientists have seen that, when rats were asleep, the same neurons fired as when they had run mazes earlier that day. That means that the rats are essentially reliving their day and "practicing" the maze.
This has led Harvard sleep researchers to assert that sleep is crucial for humans to form memories and to learn. Getty So really, passing out in the middle of an all-nighter is a valid study tactic.
Continue Reading Below Advertisement But there's a problem with both of these theories. Plants and microorganisms, otherwise known as "things without brains," have dormant states that are very similar to sleepwhich kind of puts doubt on the whole "sleep is good for the brain" theory.
Then there's the fact that scientists have found certain humans who can go without sleep with no ill effects. There's even one dude who claims he hasn't slept a wink in 33 years. Continue Reading Below Advertisement In fact, all of these theories kind of went out the window when researchers discovered a gene mutation that allows people to sleep two to four hours a night without any adverse effects at all.
So, is sleep useless, then? Is it just God's way of making us take a break between masturbation sessions?
Your guess is as good as science's. Getty "We have found a strong, positive correlation between bong hits and passing out on the field behind the gym.
What you may not have realized is that the current inventory of eight planets and one sun is pretty much just science's best guess for the time being.Gravity is the force that makes pieces of matter clump together into planets, moons, and stars. Because of gravity, if you drop something, it falls down, instead of up.
Well, everybody knows that! But, what does this really mean? Even though scientists can observe and understand how gravity “behaves,” they have no clue why it exists.
Simonton's comments are likely to draw a strong reaction, both in and out of the science world. It's been the geniuses among us that have driven science forward for thousands of years, after all. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that scientists get distracted when "studying" solitaire, or the fact that solitaire may have evolved from freaking black magic, but pretty much every damn thing about the game has remained a mystery since the s.
Physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) refers to the theoretical developments needed to explain the deficiencies of the Standard Model, such as the origin of mass, the strong CP problem, neutrino oscillations, matter–antimatter asymmetry, and the nature of dark matter and dark energy.
Another problem lies within the mathematical framework of the Standard Model itself: the Standard Model is. Soot and Lamps. Before I go into the details of Dendera, I will examine some of the circumstantial evidence.
That’s because some points several authors use to prepare the “light mystery” are in contrast to what I have seen personally. Scientists have discovered how a key gene related to obesity works when it is faulty - which could signal the future prevention and even cure the health problem.
