Why Do Fingers Wrinkle When They Get Wet?

We know you've asked yourself that question in the headline and common knowledge dictates that the reason your fingers look pruney when you're in water for too long is that the skin absorbs water.

Well, Mark Changizi, an evolutionary neurobiologist at 2AI Labs in Boise, Idaho, thinks he has a better theory. Nature reports on the study, which was published in the journal Brain, Behavior and Evolution:

Go And Find One Of These Right Now!


We believe in the power of the milkshake; that inside each cup is enough pure, freshly-blended happiness to make the entire world smile. And simply put, that’s our mission: to help make the world a better place—one giant slurp at a time.

Is it far-fetched to think a frozen beverage can do so much? Not really. Think about it. Milkshakes make people smile. And when people smile they are happier. And when people are happier the people around them are happier. And, suddenly, spontaneously, irreversibly, a tidal wave of chilled joy rushes around the globe. We call this the Milkshake Revolution, a groundswell of swell, and we proudly lead the charge, f’real flag raised high.

Replacing The Dead Trees

The last two winters have been hard on the back yard. When it gets below zero and the wind is howling at 25 mph you have to be a real hardy tree to survive!  Some have it others don't.

Didn't have it.


I asked for big... and I got it!

A 25 foot tree on a 7 foot burm makes an impression.

Hold on to your Morning Coffee

The No. 1 coaster in the world is in the good ol' US of A, and it's one hell of a white-knuckle ride. Not only is it the world's tallest roller coaster at 456 feet, it also has the biggest drop at 418 feet, and goes from 0 to 128 mph in just 3.5 seconds. We don't want to overstate things here, but the line to this ride smells like fear. They're selling last rites for $4.99. Alright, maybe we made that last one up, but point is, there is no better roller coaster in the world than Kingda Ka.
