Ignorant Anti-Vaxxer Challenges Doctor On Twitter And Loses

New York State recently got rid of its religious vaccination exemptions, forcing students who want to attend school to receive all mandatory vaccinations. The move has caused uproar among anti-vaxxers who believe their rights are being violated and that vaccinations cause autism, and in some cases, even death. One of our favorite things to do is watch ignorant anti-vaxxers get owned, and New York's new laws have provided ample opportunity for this kind of carnage to occur. In this instance, somebody posted a melodramatic tweet about an un-vaccinated child crying because he was kicked out of school, and folks started railing into him. While we feel bad for the kid, we greatly enjoyed this opportunity to watch an apparent troll (who happens to have a PhD) school a woman who appears to believe that Lisa Bonet (also anti-vaccination) is some kind of medical/scientific authority. If you like this exchange you can check out the thread in its full glory right here.

Astronaut Nick Hague Took a Time Lapse of the Earth From the ISS And This Is What He Saw

By far the best views of Earth are not stunning sunsets artificially created by Snapchat or Instagram filters. It isn't on top of a mountain looking down at the world below. It is from space. And anyone who has been there will tell you, there's nothing that comes close. IF you're still skeptical, you need to check out these time-lapse visuals taken from the International Space Station by Astronaut Nick Hague.

Though the time-lapse is a huge blow for the Flat-Earth movement, because its pretty clear from the video, its round. Maybe we can go back to deciding if the dress is blue or yellow?

'SJW' Puts Climate-Change Denier In His Place In This Informative Twitter Thread

Former Toronto Sun Editor Lorrie Goldstein claimed in a tweet that no "SJW" would be able to explain the actual science behind climate change. He was in for a significant amount of embarrassment when Writer and Content Strategist Karen Geier replied to the tweet with a whole arsenal of facts and evidence.

By the way, what believing in climate change has to do with being an SJW, we'll never know...

If this made you interested in science stuff, here's a microbiologists unbelievable thread about lobsters. And for puns, here are some terrible/excellent puns.

The Hubble Telescope Gave Us an Incredible Look at Saturn's Rings and Moons

Amazing what a mere collection of water and ice and a few rocks can turn into. Saturn's rings are one of the most incredible sights in the night sky, and in space overall. Though their make up is unremarkable, since the 1970s when the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft visited the system and gave us our first close-up look. 

What's more amazing is that unlike many other celestial bodies in our universe, that we need to physically reach in order to get a clear picture of, Saturn is close enough that we can get images like those below.

White Barn Owls Have An Amazing Hunting Trick That is Dazzling Prey and Scientists Alike

It isn't easy being green, or white in this case... Or is it? Scientists have struggled for years to understand the snowy plumage of Barn Owls they would see in the wild, compared to others that were various shades of red. Even more interesting, though they are nocturnal hunters, there are many more white-colored barn owls than red, pointing to an advantage of some sort. But how could a bright white creature on the backdrop of night have a natural advantage, it just seemed completely backwards. Recent research finally answered the question ornithologists (bird nerds) have been chomping at the bit to answer.
