How many kilometers are in a mile?
If your hair goes past your ears, you should definitely own a curling iron (or curling “wand”). It locks in shine and gives you shape and keeps your hairdresser from getting angry about your lack of attention to your gorgeous locks.
I really shouldn’t enjoy this as much as I do but you don’t choose what you love, you know? Seeing a mouse trap crack open an egg is so much fun and so perfect that I want to break all my eggs like this every morning. It happens so fast, the trap snaps in place and the shell just explodes. Eggs are great for eating…
Here’s a neat video showing ink being injected into the “yolk sac artery of 72 hour-old chick embryo to visualize the beating heart and the vasculature.” It’s from Nikon’s Small World in Motion competition which is always a great source for videos that reveal the previously unseen. Watching the ink spread throughout…
This morning, the USDA and the Department of Health and Human services finally issued a new set of American dietary guidelines. Just a few hours later, the first lawsuit over those same dietary recommendations was announced.
Our eyes got fat in 2015. With all kinds of yummy GIFs and daring food porn and meals that looked so good we considered eating our laptops and monitors in hopes of tasting the visual deliciousness, it was a hunger inducing year for eyeballs. Here are some of the best food GIFs we made in 2015 on Sploid.
What did you have for breakfast? Eggs? Scrambled? Were they good? Of course! Everyone loves scrambled eggs and any variation of it is edible. But there are very easy ways to make scrambled eggs more luxurious and pillowy and delicious. America’s Test Kitchen says to add extra yolks, add dairy, whisk with a fork so you…
I have a hard enough time trying to crack an egg without fishing out bits of the shell so I don’t even dream about ever separating the egg yolk from the egg white. If I eat an egg, it’s always going to be the whole damn thing no matter how many flip flopping lies I’ve been fed about cholesterol and yolks. But why…
You know the story of mammalian fertilization: millions of sperm enter the vagina, only one fertilizes the egg, more than one messes up the embryo, yadda yadda yadda. Turns out that’s not the only way it can work.
There are something like a thousand ways to cook an egg, with each of them being just as delicious as the next. But what if you cooked an egg in liquid nitrogen? What would happen? From the looks of this video, it looks like the egg freezes into this chalky styrofoam texture that looks totally cool.
Biologists already knew that one set of neurons play a big role in triggering puberty. A new study shows that these neurons don’t stop working once puberty ends, but keep running through adulthood, serving as a sort of reproductive timer.
When McDonald’s decides to make a change in its suppliers, it moves markets. The American fast food giant just announced that it would shift to cage-free eggs. That’s a big deal since McDonald’s purchases accounted for “more than 4 percent of the 43.56 billion eggs produced in the United States last year.”
Do you keep your butter in the refrigerator? You do? Stop it. Stop it right this second. You’re ruining your butter experience and making your toast taste like failure. Let me tell you why.
Women who are over 40 have a notoriously hard time getting pregnant by in-vitro fertilization (IVF), and it’s long been assumed that their problem stems from “old eggs”. But a preprint now available online at the Journal of Endocrinology suggests that the real problem might be the aging of the cells that surround the…
Induction cooking is sorcery masked as science through the power of magnets. That’s what I believe in my heart, at least. The heat is created from magnetic induction (as opposed to a gas stove flame or electric heating) which means without the right type of pan, you won’t be able to cook anything, even if the stove is…
The problem is simple enough. You’ve got a raw egg, and it’s going to be dropped from a high place. You have to build a contraption so that it doesn’t break when it hits. Easy? Maybe. But how do you make it as light as possible? Or as small as possible?
I mean, Alien or not, what else are you going to put eggs in other than an egg carton?
No, these aren’t about to hatch out and reveal a bloodthirsty monster with acid blood. They’re spherical rock formations, created by the natural processes of sedimentary concretion and erosion. But they really, really look like alien eggs. Check out some fascinating videos of spherical rocks all over the world.
Maybe you’re familiar with the asshole behavior of cowbirds. Known as “brood parasites,” cowbirds lay eggs in another bird’s nest and trick the host bird into raising cowbird offspring at the expense of her own. Like I said, assholes. But birds can learn to recognize imposter eggs. That’s where 3D printing comes in.
