Holy crap … We got this submission in recently about flavor-shifting toothpaste. Unfortunately without a link. And in my haste to share this with you … I’ve neglected to do some thorough Web searches on the subject. Anyone else come across this?

'Out on a limb'? It's Doc Ock time!

For the amputee who needs something a little out of the ordinary, why not replace that missing arm with a robotic tentacle? This is so awesome, we at Thanks, Science! have pulled out our old-school hacksaws in order to properly prep ourselves to try one of these babies out.

Thanks, Science!

(Even more thanks to mad scientist Darin for submitting this! Thanks, Science! loves submissions. Please tell us about the diabolical things you’ve come across.)

Student to Iran: Boobs don’t cause earthquakes

An Iranian cleric said an earthquake was caused by women who dressed, um, immodestly. So a science student (Jennifer McCreight)¬†took him up on it and organized “Boobquake" to test his claim. Thousands of women signed up and proved women in revealing clothing don’t cause the earth to shake.

Thanks, Science!

Scientists achieve two-father offspring

Reproductive scientists in Texas produced male and female offspring from two male mice! And they noted this may mean that human same-sex couples may one day be able to have genetic offspring with each other. Huzzah!

Thanks, Science!
