Machines? Simple? Dude, I always get confused by machines. I ain’t like Curtis, like, all knowin’ how to fix cars and everything. But on the GED science test, you gotta know some basic stuff about machines. An’ they got these things, you wouldn’t even think they were machines at all that are called “simple machines.” (more…)
Want to learn some GED science, and find out how the government’s gonna invade your privacy in the future? One single strand of hair… and THEY can tell where you were all last year? Can they tell what planet I was abducted to, that’s what I wanna know! Yeah, it’s true, a new science study can figure out where you were by lookin’ at your hair. (more…)
Okay. I know you’re all out there studying for your GED, dudes, and you’ve got one science question you just don’t get… or one thing about science that don’t make any sense to you. Want a magic solution?!? Just ask a question, and the great Dwayne-o will give you the answer. That’s right… I betcha I can answer any GED science question you got. So, put a comment on this post or e-mail me at email@example.com.
You know what I want to be after I get my GED? A spy. Yeah. Like James Bond. Seen the new flick? Yeah, with a fast car and all kindsa gadgets…that’s the thing, a spy’s gotta have gadgets, and that’s where science comes in. Science = kewl stuff. (more…)
Yeah, I gave you another GED question. Actually, it’s really three GED questions. Remember the super science experiment about burning money? (more…)
Okay. Bored with GED stuff? Well, learning science for the GED don’t gotta be boring! This won’t be on the test… but it can teach you real GED science. Ready? Don’t it seem like your paycheck just goes up in smoke every week? Well… science can show you how to BURN MONEY without BURNING IT! (more…)
Yeah. This is totally something I want to see on the GED test… Cats that glow in the dark. How can the GED make something so interesting into boring multiple choice questions? So, did scientists make these cats to sell them to millionaires for big bucks? To write funner GED practice questions? Or can glow-in-the-dark cats really help scientists cure diseases and save endangered species? I thought about it a lot, cuz it seemed weird to me. I think the answer’s in how they do the cloning, tho, and that’s GED science thinking. (more…)
Okay. Have you seen these cats!?!? Scientists in Korea cloned these kitties that glow in the dark. Yeah! No more tripping over the cat in the middle of the night, right? No need for a night-light, cuz you got a glow in the dark kitty! What do you think??? (more…)
Here’s the article I found about mummy dinosaurs…sweet!Dinosaur Mummy Found with Fossilized Skin and Soft Tissues
We all know it’s kewl… but how come scientists care that this dinosaur’s a mummy? I guess the answer’s gotta be in this paragraph:
The fossilized remains, discovered in 1999, included not just bones, but fossilized soft tissues like skin, tendons and ligaments. Most importantly, it was the first-ever find of a dinosaur where the skin “envelope” had not collapsed onto the skeleton. This has allowed scientists to calculate muscle volume and mass for the first time. The fact that the skin is mostly intact allows for the exciting possibility that some of its original chemistry is still present.
Did you make anything out of all this science mumbo-jumbo? I know what “not just bones” means! There’s all sorts of icky dinosaur bits sticking to it… like skin and stuff. “Tendons,” “ligaments,” those are other gooey stuff inside your body, right? Can’t see that stuff if all you got is bones.
And it says the skin didn’t collapse, so they can see how much muscle those dinosaurs had… like how big around they were. More stuff you can’t see just from bones.
What about that part about “original chemistry”? What’s that? I bet it means dino DNA…. yeah, Jurassic Park time, dudes! They can get that mummy dino’s DNA and then make a whole army of mummy dinosaurs… hey, maybe being a scientist would be pretty kewl…
But wouldn’t it be kewl?!?! Like, say you opened the tomb of the great Tyrano-Tut and there… instead of an Egyptian king… was a mummified T-Rex, and he’d be real hungry, too after all those years in a tomb. So he comes to life right there and eats three graduate students in one bite! Kewl. Totally. (more…)
