Fraudster Boffins Fiddle Climate Figures

global warming hiatus

Bad news people: scientists have discovered that global warming didn’t stop in 1998 after all. The lack of statistically significant warming – often called the “pause” or “hiatus” – has long baffled climate scientists whose computer models are showing impending global warming doom.

So, how did the top boffins at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration work out that everyone had been reading the thermometer wrong?

They “corrected” the data by boosting the temperature readings from some ocean buoy recorders, upping ship-based temperature readings and raising land-based temperature readings. And just for good measure they adjusted the pre “pause” data downwards. If they were accountants, that would be called fraud…

Giant Jumping Robot Cheetahs

Not happy with with creating an oversized terminator-style cheetah capable of running at high speeds, boffins at MIT have now taught their terrifying contraption how to jump. Check out the video below…

Bionic Man Controls Two Robotic Arms With His Mind

Boffins at Johns Hopkins have managed to re-map the brain signals that amputee Les Baugh used to send to his arms, allowing him to control new robot arms instead. Still some way from becoming a masseuse…

Boffins Discover Terminator 2 Secret


The mass production of flexible, printed electronic circuits could now be a reality thanks to boffins who have figured out a way to shoehorn liquid metal into an inkjet printer. By subjecting a gallium/indium mix to ultrasound, material scientists at Purdue University turned liquid metal into nanoparticles small enough to be printed like ink. Keep up!

Theoretically, liquid metal circuits will be able to withstand stretching, squeezing and folding; opening up a whole new field of robotic possibilities – pliable robots that can squeeze through holes and stretchy embeddable medical devices will  both be feasible. As would the T-1000 liquid metal robots from Terminator 2…

Quote of the Day

Expelled Tory MP, Richard Benyon, on the short three-day Programme Motion for the Withdrawal Agreement Bill:

“Whether you had three days, three weeks or three months debating this, you would not hear one original argument that we hadn’t otherwise heard in this process…”
