Re: About how many megapixels would human eye hold?

"The average human retina has five million cone receptors on it. Since the cones are responsible for color vision, you might suppose that this equates to a five megapixel equivalent for the human eye. But there are also a hundred million rods that detect monochrome contrast, which plays an impo...

Re: Bear vs Gorilla Stand-Off. Who would win?

Now you're just being silly. I wouldn't have to kill the bear with my bare hands, because I could use one of the multitude of deadly tools my species has designed to kill bears instead. Give me one intelligent argument for why the bear would win. P.S. Your grammar is atrocious...

Taking a combination of Leucine, Isoleucine and Carnatine amino acids has helped my muscle recovery time substantially. Of course, yoga and a good attitude never hurts either.

Re: Bear vs Gorilla Stand-Off. Who would win?

Very simply, the gorilla could strangulate the bear or damage it's spinal column by hyper-rotating it's cranium. Intellect is always important during life or death struggles like the one being proposed. Think about it... :)

Re: Bear vs Gorilla Stand-Off. Who would win?

I think the gorilla would "win", due to their agility and superior upper body strength. They are also more intelligent than polar bears.

Re: Mode of nutrition of spider and starfish

Biologists use the term "sea star" not starfish. It's an Echinoderm people!

Re: Poisoned by antibiotics...can anyone help?

I agree with Kat wholeheartedly. Too many rare conditions are dismissed as being "impossible" or "highly improbable." I just read a story about a post-surgery patient presenting with shooting pain at the surgery site and it took his doctor 6 MONTHS to realize that he had sewn a 1...

Re: [NEUROSCIENCE]-Two Questions about AP Propagation

I think the second question is referring to thicker axons having nodes of Ranvier and thus can perform saltatory conduction. This would decrease the need for Na+ channels. The answer to the first question sounds pretty reasonable.

Re: Humane way of treating mice infestation?

I believe that snap traps are the most humane way to rid yourself of mice. It is almost instantaneous and probably allows little time for pain to be felt by the little fellas. Let me explain it this way: would you rather be killed instantly by a guillotine or be hunted down and eaten by a lion? Thos...

Re: Difference between T-Cell and Phagocyte?

Aptitude, that was a brilliant response. I was in microbiology class yesterday biting my tongue while the professor kept referring to B cells as phagocytes. Biology is all about using the proper terminology!
