Thought we could use a separate thread to discuss any number of sciencey topics like physics, biology, astronomy, archaeology, non-covid medical and also the future. What comes next? Technology affects every aspect of our lives, and we are only able to do most of the things we do and know most of the things we know as a species...

#BecauseScience

I'll start the proceedings with this video on electricity, quite interesting and a little confusing about the way it's distributed around the world. Also, in this #TheDumbestTimeline, just really nice to see that it was only released 4 days ago and already has 4,668,074 views.

Funny thing...he's my wife's side of the family, and while I have a lush head of hair, my son, unfortunately it seems, will be sharing those genes with the Klose side of the family.
poor guy
They're 2nd cousins...think that's how it works

I mean he's my cousin, so my kid's 2nd cousin right?

OT: Hey Nerds [intentionally left blank]
OT: Hey Nerds Because Nerds
OT: Hey Nerds did you think I was talking to somebody else?

Cousin, once removed

As an aside, Madonna's my 8th cousin... we have common roots in Quebec. She still doesn't invite me over though. :)

The perplexity begins with the term 'removed'. Many people are confused between a first cousin removed and a second cousin. The familiar misconception for cousin relationships is that the child of your cousin is your second cousin or that your mother or father's cousin is your second cousin. The requirement to be first, second, or third cousins, is to SHARE a common set of grandparents, great, great grandparents , or great great grandparents and so on it continues for fourth, fifth and more degrees of cousin kinship.
