    Anyone ever been to the Institute of Technology in Boston?

    We went a number of years ago and were able to sit thru the wonders of electricity in there.
    There's 2 very large Tesla coils in there that put on one heck of an impressive display.
    Whole thing was pretty spectacular.
    I've never seen those, but there is a large one south of me in Hot Springs, Arkansas, that puts on a nice display as well. I am fascinated by them.

    Anyone knows about glycolysis , glucokinase , hexokinase , insulin anything about biochemistry ? I need to ask something

    Biochemistry and molecular biology were two subjects I hated. I only studied enough to get passing grades and then promptly forgot anything I might have learnt.

    Bless those "Ancient Aliens" for the Discovery channel, PBS, TLC and Eric Von Daniken!!
    Hey Hey HEY!
    Ancient Aliens is more in line with my thread:
    http://forums.windowscentral.com/off...g-history.html

    Lets keep this thread pure science. Ultimately, I hope there are cross conversations between the two threads as new discoveries are made (that aren't all due to Alien intervention...)

    24 years ago I knew a whole lot about those. Didn't end up working in the industry so haven't used it since. And a whole lot of subsequent science has occurred since.

    Same with me. I graduated in 1991 but never worked in the biology field.

    I read an article about this a few years back. I mentioned it to a friend (I worked with him in Australia) of mine who is a creationist (sad too because he's fairly intelligent) and he was very intrigued because one of the things they try to use against an old universe is light having different speeds.

    He found out that day I wasn't a believer. I never saw someone so stunned. Not sure if it rocked his world view or not but he seemed wary of me after that for awhile. He continued to feed his mind with denialism though, sadly. :/

    Interesting hypothesis. I'll await for testing of the model to see what happens and what comes out that.

    The comments at the article are interesting.... Some better than others.

    Nope. There's plenty more where that came from, let alone what's left on earth to sort out.

    Speaking of high frequency energy....😊 All of this Tesla talk put me in the mood to drag out my Tesla Coil for my kiddos to see. Once I get it dusted off, I'll try to post some pictures of it in action. :)
    That's pretty cool. It was many years ago that I saw one of those in a science centre back in Canada.

    Talking about electricity, I changed 6 bulbs and three fixtures in my house to LED lighting and dropped my electrical bill $15 a month.

    The only strange thing that occurred was the light above my kitchen sink has 7 LED bulbs with a clear lens, so the light isn't diffused and it gives any item 7 shadows.

    It is an awesome book. I actually owned it and then loaned it to a friend and asked him to pay it forward. Let me know how you like it.

    Nah man, those shadows are from the Disco Ball the missus put up.

    When I bought my first house about 14 years ago, I paid an arm and a leg and put CFL in every single light outlet and bought the best energy efficient appliances that were available at that time. My electric bill for the house was lower than the apartment I used to live in:-)

    I replaced all the 50W halogens with 5W LEDs. :) I can't replace three lights unfortunately but at least most are done. :) we've been doing pretty well energy rise until the winter came. We have electric heaters.
