Scientists Are Reviewing Household Amazon Products, And We Can’t Stop Giggling
Amazon is a great place for getting just about anything. But if you don’t read the reviews, you might not get what you pay for. If you’re one of those people who does this on every item that you’re thinking about purchasing, then you might want to hold on to your seat because you’re about to laugh so hard that you might not be able to compose yourself.
Scientists started reviewing products on Amazon, and you might be surprised what common household items can be used for. Who would have known that people who work in the sciences could have such great sense of humor?
We all know what paintbrushes are used for, but they might be good for people who work in neuroscience. This scientist says that these artist paintbrushes can be good for manipulating 20-micron sections of bird or fish brains in a cryostat of -20 degrees Celsius. No one would have guessed.
Vaseline is often used as a moisturizer for dry skin, but no one would have guessed that it can be mixed with skunk essence to lure black bears into a snare. According to this scientist, she only wished it would come in larger sizes because she wanted to order large amounts of it. Who would have known that such a common item had such a specialized use?
According to this scientist, colored nail polish is an essential item for any tropical first aid kit. You can use it to clear out baby maggots. Just apply it to the larvae and leave it there until it dies. After that, you can just pull it out of the area. According to
this scientist, it can be a great way to keep track of infestations throughout the season. That’s good to know in case I need to go trekking through the Amazon.
While colored nail polish can be great for people who need to do field work in a tropical hellhole, clear nail polish can be great for sealing coverslips on microscope slides. But this scientist warned people not to use the sparkly kind. Makes sense.
We all know that it’s called “superglue” for a reason. It can be used for anything from fixing a broken coffee mug to reattaching something from a sculpture or figurine, but no one would have thought that it can be used for attaching RFID tags and radio transmitters to bees. The only problem is that an angry bee can instantly attach to human skin. While it would no doubt be an unpleasant experience, you can’t stop laughing at this one.
According to this scientist, a gas-powered leaf blower/mulcher from Ryobi can make a great way to get insect samples from vegetation. He just sews some small mesh bags that he attaches with a rubber band to keep them from being chopped up. Who would have thought that a common garden appliance can be helpful for people who are involved in the study of insects?

It Seemed To Be Very Bad

The Case of the Ever-Growing Nose – Medical Kindness in Action
Young people are constantly afraid how they look will reflect on their social status and getting through teenagehood. So imagine how fearful and frustrating it could be if, beginning with the most socially impressionable phase of a young life, your nose started growing uncontrollably. This is exactly what happened to one young lady from Louisiana, Pamela Ichard.
Pamela grew up with a very normal childhood. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and looking at all her school photos, nobody would notice anything out of the ordinary. However, at 15 and going through her worst phase of acne, Pamela realized her facial changes were not temporary and something more serious was occurring. The acne was more severe, and the actual surface of her skin was transforming around her nose. Everyone thought it was just a bad case of acne that she would grow out of, like every teenager before. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
What was actually happening to Pamela was a skin condition known as Rosacea. It would progress into most of her adult life, but as a teenager she had no idea. Pamela simply thought she was unlucky kid with bad acne. In her 20s though the difference in her nose became apparent. No longer did she have the thin cute nose of her childhood. Instead, her nose was already larger, rounder and more pronounced. This became very evidence as Pamela entered motherhood and had two children. What she thought at first was just a skin reaction turned out to be permanent disfigurement of Pamela’s nose. In addition, the rest of the skin around her nasal area and cheeks changed texture and become rougher and uneven. As her children grew older, Pamela resigned herself to a more and more pronounced facial feature without any solution or cure.
By the time Pamela was 46, she had lived with her form of Rosacea for more than 30 years. Specifically, her severe condition is known as Rhinophyma. The exact reason why it affected Pamela is unknown but the physical deformation is obvious, and in her case literally on the front of her face, a practically unavoidable situation in terms of being seen. This affected Pamela psychologically, changing her temperament from a happy young person to a chronically unhappy adult. And it was not as if Pamela didn’t seek help; she tried multiple doctors and ten times as many prescriptions. However, none of the drugs or medicines prescribed had any effect. Instead, her condition just seemed to get worse.
Finally, being a 2016 case on a TV show called the Doctors, Pamela let the entertainment world see her condition on the off chance someone medically might have a solution. It worked; Dr. Ann Zedlitz agreed to take on the case surgically and help Pamela. The results were amazing. Pamela finally had a normal-looking nose and face again after three decades of suffering. And best of all, the surgery was provided for free. Since the surgery Pamela has begun enjoying her life again and, best of all, she’s smiling again.
