For people who don’t have time to bathe or access to fresh water, a South African college student has a solution: a shower gel users simply rub onto their skin. One small packet replaces one bath, and users never need any water. Ludwick Marishane’s inspiration was a lazy friend, but his invention will be a boon to people who live in areas where clean water is in short supply. 
The gel, called Drybath, kills germs, moisturizes the skin and exudes a pleasant, light smell, unlike hand sanitizers, according to Marishane’s website, Headboy Industries.  [Continue reading.]

if you were a twin in ancient rome they would name the firstborn and then name the secondborn after the firstborn

except 

if your older twin’s name was geminus, your name would be anti-geminus

that is the equivalent of naming your children steve and not steve

so what happened when triplets were born 

Steve, Not Steve, Definitely Not Steve.

Was there a REAL Doctor Frankenstein?

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is widely considered the first work of science fiction, the classic tale of a creature reanimated from the dead and its descent into a terror-inducing monster. But where did Shelley get the idea for her story? Are there real-life versions of Victor Frankenstein, then or now?

And while we’re talking about real-life links to the Frankenstein story, what can this story teach us about modern science? Is this a warning about science gone too far? Or is it about something else?
