If you tighten the string hard enough and long enough, as JackBean said, the level of oxygen and other nutrients will decrese and level of metabolites will increse, what will lead to death. If you keep tightening it for months (or weeks, assuming that you let the rats and bugs eat your rotting finge...

Re: Brain size=IQ level theory (Blacks vs Whites & Asians)

Brain size does not always determine IQ. Women, for example have smaller brains than men, but theirs are more developed than men's.

Cool...and if there are multiple copies of the same gene, would that affect at all how the protein or RNA molecule the gene codes for is produced in the cell?

no, centrioles don't break cause thay're not pulled apart during cell division, they just duplicate into two centrioles, do their work and each daughter cell keeps one of them for another division.

I think it only breaks in half and each half of the centromere stays with one of the chromatids, and then duplicates along with the rest of the chromosome during cell duplication, in order to be able to keep the new chromatid together with the old one.
I think i saw that in a book...

Hey, i've always got this doubt: the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body and viceversa because the nerve fibres get crossed in the medula oblongata. But the nerves that have to do with sight, taste, hearing, smell, facial touch, etc. don't cross the brain stem, right? Do...
