    So actually you have no interest in statistical cosmology? Why bother to ask how fast one would have to go to reach outer space in an hour? 🙂

    Just because you don't have a PhD in a subjcst it does not mean you have no interest in it.

    Did you know that myths of old are not always totally fiction? But perhaps it's only matters of coincidences? However, we needed to keep in mind that these myths typically involve divine characters who are the gods and their escapades with humans in producing half-gods, the heroes of old.

    Modern medical facts confirm that, excluding the skin, hair follicles, and intestinal lining, the liver is the only organ of the body that can regenerate itself if a portion is cut off.

    In the Journal of Hepatology we have an interesting article addressing ancient myths and the liver. Tityus: A forgotten myth of liver regeneration. It's a free article.

    Abstract

    The ancient Greek myth of Tityus is related to liver regeneration in the same way as the well known myth of Prometheus is. Depictions of the punishment of Prometheus are frequently used by lecturers on liver regeneration; however, Tityus remains unknown despite the fact that he received the same punishment and his myth could also be used as a paradigm for the organ's extraordinary ability to regenerate. Nevertheless, there is no convincing evidence that ancient Greeks had any specific knowledge about liver regeneration, a concept introduced in the early 19th century. We describe and analyze the myth of Tityus and compare it to the myth of Prometheus. We also explore artistic and literary links and summarize recent scientific data on the mechanisms of liver regeneration. Finally, we highlight links of the legend of Tityus with other sciences.
