Fluorescent light messes with my eyes as well. I swear they're making me go blind.

The thing about MSG is that it's just an amino acid with a sodium attached. I'd be more than willing to be it's more because the people that get palpitations and headaches and such have a negative reaction with too much salt than an amino acid that is present in every single food that has protein in it and also one that the body requires as part of the metabolism.

EDIT: If you have some sort of negative reaction to glutin, that would probably do it, as well.

It's possible. I don't know about gluten, but given the glutamates' general role in our biochemistry, just about anything could be possible. Maybe another hundred years of research will enlighten us. In the meantime, eating at the Cheesecake Factory makes me feel fucking horrible.

Eating at a "Factory" is never a good sign.

To make the corn syrup into high fructose corn syrup, you turn some of its glucose molecules into fructose molecules by exposing the syrup to yet another enzyme, again produced by bacteria. This enzyme converts the glucose to a mixture of about 42 percent fructose and 53 percent glucose, with some other sugars as well. This syrup, called HFCS 42, is about as sweet as natural sugar (sucrose) and is used in foods and bakery items. HFCS 55, which contains approximately 55 percent fructose and 42 percent glucose, is sweeter than sucrose and is used mostly in soft drinks.

Sugar cane must be crushed to extract the juice. The crushing process must break up the hard nodes of the cane and flatten the stems. The juice is collected, filtered and sometimes treated and then boiled to drive off the excess water. The dried cane residue (bagasse) is often used as fuel for this process. The remaining liquid is allowed to set into a solid mass known as jaggery, gur, chancaca or panela. (Gur is used in the rest of this document.)

Oh shit, first you have to add acids to cornstarch to make corn syrup, then you can begin the processes of turning corn syrup into corn sugar.

Tell me again why juicing sugar cane is not the healthier idea?

The acids cost less, I'd imagine.

I must be cheaper, or at least more profitable, otherwise they wouldn't do it.

Well yeah, but I said healthier. I can eat fruit roll ups or pay more and dry my own fruit. Fruit roll ups are not something you should eat though.

Fruit leather is damn good.

My mum gave me her Ron Popeil brand food dehydrator, so I've been making jerky and shit like that to take with me to school. The fruit wrap is a little harder, I grant you.

Just put aluminum foil on your head - works every time.

In other science news, the newest member of the periodic table has apparently been produced. The element presently known as ununtrium - which was the last hole in the periodic table under 118 - has now been officially identified through it's decay chain through 6 separate and distinct alpha emissions.

EDIT: "Last hole up to 118" may be overstating it a bit, but the other elements (up to 118) have been positively identified and reported in peer-reviewed journals - just with not enough firmness to allow for naming rights to be awarded, which is controlled by IUPAC. At least this is what I've been led to believe. :o

Probably won't matter much except to elemental purists.

I'd bet on Nipponium, although I agree with you.

University of Florida researchers have discovered that the African spiny mouse has unique regenerative capabilities. The mouse is able to regrow new body tissues following an injury. These mice have skin that is easily torn, which helps them escape predators. Their special ability enables them to then regrow skin or ear parts they lose in escape attempts.
There is hope the African spiny mice's unique tissue regrowth capabilities, the same sort of biological process that a salamander uses to regenerate a severed limb, could translate into medical therapies for humans. Salamanders are studied frequently in the lab, but amphibian biology is very different than human biology.

I WOULD LIKE TO ADD TO THIS SOME MORE NONSENSICAL SENTENCES.

IF YOU PUT PEANUTS ON THE MIRROR I WOULD FEEL LIKE AN ELEPHANT.

Ok, now things are getting interesting.

The hype is a little misleading, as nothing has been proven yet, but a major test for Einstein's theory of General Relativity has not ever been able to be proven ... until now. In short, by monitoring these two stars for a few years, astronomers will be able to a) measure the mass of the black hole at the galactic center, and b) measure the deviations of both emitted light and from the elliptical orbits of both stars at the point of closest approach.

In a word, awesome.
