Soapy cilantro

I suppose a lot of people already know this one, but I figured it would be fun for those who didn’t, and also nice to have something we can shove in someone’s face if they should disagree that cilantro is inherently nasty. Oh, and also…

Black and white vision

I was working on a piece about mitosis and meiosis, because the three other things I was working on was not super relevant for school, and it has been a while since I made something that’s useful for school. But then I started to make…

Vantablack

I just think this is really cool. I’m a big fan of black, and I can think of so many awesome uses for this, if only it was possible for me to get insane amounts of it. But that’s never gonna happen, so I’m just…

Chemicals

‘”Chemical” is not a dirty word. “ew, that food is full of chemicals”. Yes, of course it is, and so are you 🙂 Seriously, you’re just full of it. ReAgent wrote a nice and short article about this, have a look: https://www.reagent.co.uk/what-exactly-is-a-chemical/ (last accessed 11.06.2021)

Koala fingerprints

Black panther

This is of course easy to check in the dictionary: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/virulence https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pathogenicity But I feel it is easier to explain these two together, and of course with an illustration 🙂 If you want to read a bit more about pathogenicity and virulence, check out Wikipedia….

Crying is good for you

I’m usually more for the funny facts, but sometimes I need to be a bit serious too. After working a lot on some other work (a logo and some cool stuff for my food scientist friend, I might post that later) I finally had time…
