Science has given us countless modern wonders of laser beams, space travel to the super absorbent, soft as a feather toilet paper. But over the last few years is not a single scientist has gone the way of useful scientific inventions and took crazy, delusional research.
But no one in his madness did not go further than these people:
Wilhelm Reich studied the effects of sex on the weather
Psychoanalyst, who in the 1940s was really fixated on sexuality, Wilhelm Reich believed that the human libido has its own type of crazy energy shi kung fu. He called it orgone (orgone), since the name "humptricity" he left for his future rock groups.
He created orgone accumulators (boxes made of thin metal and pressed steel wool and a variety of other materials), so that people can stay in and absorb all the good that produces sexual orgone.
But all the good is bound to have shortcomings. Orgonovo deadly radiation killed all the plants around the laboratory of William and formed a cloud over a threatening manner. To combat the deadly orgone Wilhelm did what would make any sane person, he constructed from pipes klaudbaster, to which were attached the hoses leading to the water.
Do you want to laugh or not, William persuaded Albert Einstein to study the orgone accumulators, and the couple spent some time evaluating and studying the device.
Charles Claude Guthrie and two headed dog
Charles Claude Guthrie was not a crazy villain, but due to the nature of the era in which he lived (early 1900.), Full of various delusions, the man spent several experiments that would nowadays be scared away from you all normal people except for the mad scientists.
Guthrie has played an important role in the development of modern methods of transplantation as well as he was the first person who sewed the dog a second head, at least for commercial purposes.
He created the biceps dog. Perhaps it was his first step towards the creation of Cerberus, the three-headed dog of Greek inhabitant of the underworld, which you can see in the first film, Harry Potter.
Error Hwang Woo-suk to try to clone mammoth
Hwang Woo-suk, the Korean scientist who has made a number of discoveries in the field of stem cell research, and was also a fraud. In 2006, he was accused of embezzlement and bioethics law violations related to fraudulent stem cell research. Rather than lower the money in the casinos of Las Vegas, he spent more than half a million dollars trying to clone a mammoth-magnazavra.
But as it became known, Hwang Woo Suk had fabricated sensational results of experiments on the cloning of stem cells.
Kevin Varick cyborg
Kevin Warwick, a British scientist and professor of cybernetics, is endowed with a special honor. He is the author of one of the few bizarre experiments, which currently is being conducted around the world. His passion for robots so powerful that it wants to become the first man-cyborg.
To this end, Warwick implanted a chip in his arm, which allowed him to control the small, mostly not cold items found in his home. He could turn off the lights and open the door.
A couple of years later, in his nervous system more modern chip implanted to using it, he could control a robotic arm. A similar device was implanted and his wife, and the two took part in the first experiment on the electronic communications of the nervous system of two people over the Internet. We assume that the function has also been integrated sharing porn files.
Dr. Duncan McDougall attempts to weigh the soul
Duncan McDougall is one of the most suspicious of doctors, we just met, and, apparently, likes to play games like "Drink this seething liquid" or "Smell rag soaked in ether," both of which, as we know, were completely unfunny after a few rounds.
In the early 20th century McDougall developed a theory that the soul has weight. After the experiments, he even named a figure — 21 grams, which was later borrowed for the title of the film. You ask, "What's the experiment?" Experiment, in which the soul MacDougall weighed six dying patients. On these patients, no written or who they were, nor what death died. Enough to know just what in the last moments of their lives placed on the scales and weighed as weigh meat in supermarkets. McDougall also repeated this experiment on dogs.
The study found that the difference in weight of people to death and then turned out to be insignificant, and the dogs do not turn down the gain. Then it turns out that the two-headed dog Guthrie soul was missing entirely, and it is an evil in its purest form.
