Float Like a Sailboat, Glide Like an Albatross

Nature and technology might just have found a perfect partnership.

Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently developed a robotic glider -- one that draws its inspiration from both biological and nautical designs -- that can travel along the water's surface, dipping down to surf waves, or simply hovering above them on the power of an air current.

The idea behind the craft is to allow for flight capabilities in areas that have high winds while also being able to sail through the water in areas where winds are calmer.

English Man Fitted with Bionic Penis

For 44 years, a Manchester, England man has lived without a penis, which means he’s never experienced sex. Thanks to a recent operation, though, he now not only has a penis, but he’ll be able to finally consummate his longtime relationship with his girlfriend, after a six-week resting period.

The penis is made from skin, muscles, and nerves in his left arm, as well as the vein from his right leg. The final touch was a pump, which was recently implanted, to create an erection. The result, dubbed a “bionic penis” by the press, means that Andrew Wardle will feel sensation during sex as any other man would.

Serotonin May Affect Learning, as Well as Mood

Serotonin has long been studied for its connection to mood. In fact, an entire class of antidepressant medications are called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) due to their regulation of serotonin in the brain. But a new study connects serotonin levels to the brain’s ability to gather and retain learned information.

The study, which involved teams at two separate institutions, monitored the ability of mice to adapt to a new role and noticed that serotonin was part of the process. The researchers noticed that when activated with light, the mice’s serotonin neurons seemed to cause the test subjects to adapt to the new situation. The test involved a situation where the mice had to use learning to adapt their behavior to changes.

Instead, says Alex Hentges, the confection contained nary a shred of peanut butter, which made it a solid mass of chocolate. And when a person buys a Reese's Cup, they're buying it for the peanut-butter-and-chocolate combo.

So, Hentges decided to share his experience on Reddit, posting a photo of the peanut butter-less cup along with an accompanying caption. He also included a video of him opening another cup from the same package...and it didn't contain peanut butter, either.
