Hot Heads and Cellular Fluidics
The hotter the temperature, the more violent humans get. So concludes a new study that compared the rates of violence in the inmate populations of prisons with climate control and those without. Anthony and Jeff take a look at the data, and what it says about human nature and humans in nature. Then, a new breakthrough allows liquids and gases to be transported through porous materials without leaking. Jeff and Anthony examine all of the amazing applications this new tech will enable.
