Why Some Civil War Soldiers Glowed in the Dark - Mental Floss
That's interesting, I don't know much about the Civil War but the "glowing" wounds of soldiers kinda kept them alive because of bacteria.
When I read the title of the article I was thinking "oh, it must have been radium or phosphorus in the gunpowder or something" but the actual explanation is way, way cooler.
Glow-in-the-dark GI Joes -- with Kung-Fu Grip!
Its the Lambent!
Hm interesting, that's some pretty awesome bacteria.
Same here and I must agree you completely. It is very cool.
That's actually really cool. I'll have to print that out for my dad, who's a rather big history buff (especially with civil war era stuff).
At last, we see the light. Nature is astounding.
Funny how something is neat, which apparently is over a decade old (the story in the link, not the whole Civil War), only NOW reaches publication.
You would think that something like this would have gotten a little more attention.
Now that is awesome!
Yeah, this. Just when you think you get how it works, it pulls off a great twist.
Cool that a buncha kids initiated this finding. Definitely better off than posting dumb threads on dumbstep or summat.
I still think it was angels tho. Fuck you science!
Nice to see a DC science post tho. Im almost expecting a drippy homebrew post anytime soon.
That is officially awesome.
I figured it was a bacteria, but the acual mechanics of it are very neat.
Wow, that's cool! Didn't expect anything like this.
Rubbish I'm afraid. Everybody knows its the healthy glow of radiation that gives super powers. Stan Lee taught me that.
I was thinking the same thing. This is pretty cool!
so they were the first super soldiers?
I knew maggots could help clean up dead tissue, but glowy bacteria must look so much better. Sucks that you'd have to be hypothermic to um, enjoy that though.
