We all know that contact with Jellyfish causes an immense amount of pain. But do you know how, exactly?

Here’s the short version: Their tentacles are equipped with hypodermic needles, activated by contact, that shoot venom into whatever they touch. How many of these needles does a jellyfish have? Oh, only about 800,000 per square centimeter.

Travel with Destin of Smarter Every Day to see animal venom expert Jamie Seymour in Cairns, Australia. Together they watch a tentacle in a way that no one else ever has — through a microscope using a high-speed camera.

What you’re about to see has never been recorded before…and it will make you even more certain than you have ever been to stay far away from jellyfish…

Jul 29, 2014 By Joey White 3

Rick and Wanda Stead were passing by a beautiful iceberg in Newfoundland, Canada, when it suddenly gave way. When Wanda realized Rick was too entranced by the spectacle to start their boat and move them to safety, she went a little crazy…

Of course, if any of us were in her shoes, staring down a giant tidal wave, we’d have done the same thing.

Creationist says all aliens are going to hell, Neil deGrasse Tyson has 3 words for him

Jul 28, 2014 By Abraham 19

In an article for his followers last week, creationist Ken Ham expressed his strong disbelief in the existence of aliens, since “The Bible…teaches that earth was specially created, that it is unique and the focus of God’s attention.”

He’s confident enough in their nonexistence that he believes looking for them is sin, because “the search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man’s rebellion against God.”

BUT if aliens do exist, they’re screwed…

You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation. One day, the whole universe will be judged by fire…

So what does eminent astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson say in response to this hypothesis?
