WORLD—Man, you look weird. That's possibly what birds are thinking when they look at us through their crazy eyes. These feathered freaks see ultraviolet light. Radical, man. This apparently helps the hummingbirds know what flowers are ready for pollination and the love birds know when it`s time for lovin'.
Now get this, bacteria talk. Not like "hi, whats up", but through chemicals. This is kind of a big deal discovery because figuring out exactly how it works could help when it comes to combating infectious diseases and coming up with new antibiotics. Score!
Now... get out your black lights because it's time to party... Scorpion style. Sounds weird 'cause it is. Check it... scorpions glow under blacklight, much like your favorite Elvis painting and yes, these both baffle scientists. They're getting closer to figuring it out and think it has something to do with scorpions not digging on ultraviolet light. Like scorpions need one more thing to make'em even more ominous.
So, did you know more than 1200 species can walk on water? No? Set your TIVO science nerds cause that'll be in our next weird science.
