I am sorry, I just deleted my posting, in this case I was wrong because it seems to be an actual image of Burma, not Nepal.
But my original claim stands: there are many many people out there who post pictures out of context (for example peta-protest where people are wrapped up like meat) and claim them to show atrocities of the bad west.
And they are being believed, that is the thing.

wow sind die cool



Ratten brauchen fuer 200 m2 Land 20 Minuten, ein Mensch braucht 5 Tage. Die Ratten entdecken Landminen und geben dann Alarm, sie sind aber leicht genug um sie nicht auszuloesen. Tanzania wird so entmint.

25% of the people have a 4th cone and see colors as they are

Given the sudden interest for the color of dresses and vision, here some of the fascinating findings we did recently.

The color nuances we see depend on the number and distribution of cones (=color receptors) in our eye. You can check this rainbow: how many color nuances do you count?

You see less than 20 color nuances: you are a dichromats, like dogs, which means you have 2 types of cones only. You are likely to wear black, beige, and blue. 25% of the population is dichromat.

You see between 20 and 32 color nuances: you are a trichromat, you have 3 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green and red area). You enjoy different colors as you can appreciate them. 50% of the population is trichromat.

You see between 33 and 39 colors: you are a tetrachromat, like bees, and have 4 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green, red plus yellow area). You are irritated by yellow, so this color will be nowhere to be found in your wardrobe. 25% of the population is tetrachromat.

You see more than 39 color nuances: come on, you are making up things! there are only 39 different colors in the test and probably only 35 are properly translated by your computer screen anyway :)

It is highly probable that people who have an additional 4th cone do not get tricked by blue/black or white/gold dresses, no matter the background light ;)

I see 38. 

37.

At Poppin HQ, our conference rooms are painted wall to wall in a solid bright color: Aqua, Coral, Blue, Yellow. Yellow room drives me nuts. Now it makes sense.

Eltern ABC: S wie Staunen über Elternsex

Der Schriftsteller David Wagner, Patchworkvater von drei Kindern, registriert Blicke ins Schlafzimmer.

Illustration: Ana Albero

Illustration: Ana Albero

Die Kinder interessieren sich plötzlich dafür, ob ihre Eltern miteinander schlafen. Sie stehen vor der Schlafzimmertür, schauen durchs Schlüsselloch, behaupten, Überwachungskameras installiert zu haben. „Die Decke bewegt sich“, sagt das eine Patchworkgeschwisterkind zum anderen, das Dritte springt über den Flur und singt „Sie machen Sex! Sie machen Sex!“ Der Sex der Eltern ist eine unglaubliche, unvorstellbare Angelegenheit. Man kennt das aus der eigenen Kindheit. Es muss ihn allerdings gegeben haben. Sonst wäre man nicht da. Machen sie es wirklich? Noch immer? Nun mit diesem neuen Partner? Papa, hast du? So richtig? Kinderinteresse. Eigentlich möchte man, dass sie sich für alles interessieren…

Von David Wagner

I hope this helps some people the way it helped me. 

After giving this same advice about affirmations to a few people in the past few months, I thought I would put this together in comic form.

I actually recorded myself saying my affirmations and I repeat them as I listen on my drive to work. For a while, I got out of the habit of doing it and I realized I was feeling really down on myself. I’ve made it a priority lately and it’s made me feel more upbeat and capable. :)

There’s a way to stop the ‘tickle’ when someone’s fingers are accosting you.

ri-science:

How neuroscience can help you control your tickling response

Your brain predicts sensations based on your own movements and isn’t surprised when you try to tickle yourself. To combat the tickly feeling when someone else tickles you, cover their hand with yours.

Your brain can then make predictions about how it’s going to feel, and doesn’t produce the tickle response.

Dr. Emily Grossman explains.

this is important

Also you can punch and/or kick them in the head and firmly establish that they do not have permission to tickle you.

An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

An octopus in Germany was annoyed by a bright light shining into his tank, so he climbed up over the rim and squirted water at it to short it

Fuckin’ octopuses, man. 

and this is why we don’t eat them, instead we just bow down to Lord Ocotpus Alsquishy
