Re: What is the difference between these microscopes ? Which one is better ?

To call out a bully doesn`t help this forum or anyone interested in a normal conversation. Removed from the forum forever would be the best way to take care of this long problem.

Re: New microwave oven with metal rack..please advise?!

you can cook a roach a lot quicker than bouncing electrical current off of metallic objects, metal racks etc. inside a microwave oven, and your microwave oven may last a lot longer without all the extra current bouncing around off metal.

Re: Flame Tests

Got to remember that nothing would have ever been learned and documented if it were not for experiments in the past, and i`m saying going way back in time. History is a very important part of anything. I had several chemistry sets when I was 11,12,and 13, blew one test tube up into our white ceiling...

Re: Another marine alga

Boy those are really good, I was thinking I liked the darkfield better, but after looking at the actual cell structure, I think I like the first image better with relation to definable cell structure.
With my eyes anyway.

Re: Ah Yes, I remember it well ... Archaeopteryx

And I think a certain few smaller vertebrates started this path way before T Rex dinosaur days. So adaptation and evolution were the process for anything.

I agree, looking way back in time and sealed in fossil resin. You really get a good close up of the most distance past and sealed.

I doubt it, but let dna science continue, that battered up dna from this example of the distant past is just waiting in some form to be properly processed. I would not bet my life it can`t be done, and new dna science will continue into the future. I have no doubts you will see no end to ancient dna...

I think I will go with what the scientist will be able to do (dna) in a few hundred years if not sooner, more than likely none of us will be around to read about it. At one time man thought nothing could replace the horse and buggy, so what will man, scientist be doing in another 100,000 years? More...

May not cause anymore nasties than is around today, people can and do die from flesh eating bacteria, just a starter.
