Which fast food outlets have vanilla milkshakes that actually go beyond "boring, plain, and unexciting?" We picked nine nationwide chains, put our waistlines on the line, and braved the worst case of brain freeze in recorded history to find out. Going from worst to first, here are our unabashedly-unscientific rankings.
A point mutation that alters one protein sufficiently to turn a cold-sensitive receptor into one that senses heat has been discovered by researchers. Understanding sensation and pain at this level could lead to more specific pain relievers that wouldn't affect the central nervous system, likely producing less severe side effects than existing medications.
DURHAM, N.C. -- Ice cream lovers and hot tea drinkers with sensitive teeth could one day have a reason to celebrate a new finding from Duke University researchers. The scientists have found a very small change in a single protein that turns a cold-sensitive receptor into one that senses heat. read more
The Voluntary Butler Scheme “Brain Freeze” The Voluntary Butler Scheme is a one-man band project, but doesn’t sound much like one – there’s a spark to the interplay between the guitar, drums, and horns in his tracks that feels very live, like it’s something that’d come out on Daptone Records. The sound leans a lot […]
Brian sends in this photo of the transformation of Yogurt Tap into “brain freeze” on Church Street yesterday as crews filming scenes for the upcoming drama series “Finding Carter“, according to the City’s Katie Abel.
The last time the Knicks and Wizards met, head coach Mike Woodson suffered a brain freeze, didn’t’ call a timeout in the final seconds and watched helplessly as Carmelo Anthony took an errant jumper, leading to a one-point loss on Dec. Show More Summary

Forty percent of traumatic injury deaths are from blood loss, but a new procedure may change that by swapping out blood for an electrolyte solution.
Denis Duvauchelle is CEO and co-founder of team collaboration tool Twoodo. How many times have you read that procrastination is just a characteristic of a lazy person? That people try to be “busy” rather than “productive”? That only happy-go-lucky hippies get to take a brain break from life? For a few people, this may be true. Show More Summary

For some reason, I used to think paradoxes were hard to understand, and that they were somehow confusing and complex. Hearing the word would make my brain freeze up. I used to confuse a paradox with an oxymoron, until I learned one day that “jumbo shrimp” was an oxymoron. Show More Summary

Rick Perry’s famous “Oops..” brain freeze moment erased Perry’s national chances and gave him the image of a not-up-to-prime-time-but-a-punchline has the political scene seen such an abrupt reversal in [...]
The cryonics industry offers the means to store your body and brain immediately following death. This involves vitrification rather than freezing (to avoid ice crystal formation) and then indefinite low temperature preservation: forShow More Summary
With the precise predictability of an atomic clock, climate change deniers break out like a bad rash with irrational exuberance each time we see a snow flake. With the onset of winter's cold each year we can look forward to the reliable appearance of Skepticana deniacus, an increasingly popular bird of prey that feeds on ignorance and fear.

Cryonics is a small industry that provides low-temperature storage (via vitrification, not freezing) of the body and brain on death. The mind is just structure, and that structure can be preserved for a future in which advanced medical engineering can restore a vitrified mind to life. Show More Summary
