Rose for girlfriend If you’re travelling with your significant other, you need to watch out for the rose for girlfriend scam, which primarily targets tourist couples. The rose seller will directly approach the girl and put a rose in her hand before she can even figure out what’s going on. Once the girl grabs hold of the rose, the scammer will turn his attention to the boyfriend or husband and ask for money in exchange for the flower. Since most guys don’t want to look like cheapskates in front for their better halves – especially not on holiday - they end up paying a price of between 5 and 10 Euros for a single rose. This scam is prevalent in almost all major European cities, but is particularly popular in romantic Italian destinations like Rome, Venice, and Florence. 11. “Helpful” locals Most people like to get to know the local culture and meet new people when travelling to foreign countries. However, being too friendly with locals can be a double-edged sword sometimes and you can end up a victim of the “helpful” local scam. In this globally widespread scam, a smiling local will approach you and offer some kind of help or advice that usually results in you paying for something that you had no attention of spending money on in the first place. The overly friendly local will convince you to visit an overpriced restaurant or buy a fake product from them under the pretense they’re cutting you a great deal. While you should always be polite and respectful to local people, just make sure you keep your guard up when some of them try to give you unsolicited advice. There’s no need to get into arguments – just walk away or tell them firmly you’re not interested. 10. Friendship bracelet If you’re getting ready for a trip across Europe, this is one of the most common scams you need to know about. The friendship bracelet scam involves a pushy street vendor who approaches you and asks if you’ll help him with a “demonstration” while pulling you towards him. He then starts to make friendship bracelet directly on your arm and before you know it - he’s done and he’s asking you to pay for that friendship bracelet he made especially for you. The bracelet is usually made in way that makes it hard to take off, so the frustrated tourist usually ends up paying in order to get the vendor to leave them alone. 9. “Closed” hotel The closed hotel scam is a very common occurrence in places like Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and other South East Asian countries. This scam usually involves a taxi driver who informs you that the hotel or restaurant you’re looking for is closed and offers to take you to another place, which ends up costing way more. Both the hotel or restaurant people and the taxi driver are in on the scam, and the driver gets a commission for every person he brings in. So if you a taxi driver tries to convince you that the place you want to go to has closed, don’t just accept it as a fact. Ask him to drive you there anyway, or just get out and find another taxi. 8. The broken camera This popular scam happens to tourists all over Europe, particularly around major attractions of London and Paris such as the Buckingham Palace and the Eiffel Tower. A stranger will approach you and hand you a camera asking you to take a photo of him. After you take the photo and try to pass the camera back to him, he will fumble and drop it on the ground acting like it was your fault. He will then blame you for breaking their camera and guilt you into paying for the damages. These scammers sometimes even threaten to call the authorities, and since the last thing tourists want is to get into trouble with the law in a foreign country, they will accept to pay for the broken camera. In order to avoid this situation, you can just politely decline to take any photos of strangers. If you accept however, do your best to handle the camera correctly and always wrap the camera strap over your wrist so that you will be able to catch it just in case. 7. Fake tickets Virtually every tourist destination in the world is a potential scene for the fake ticket scam. In 2013, French police discovered a large-scale scam involving fake tickets for the Louvre museum in Paris sold to Chinese tourists. A similar scam also happened in Berlin ..

10 Things Your EYE COLOR REVEALS About You
here are 10 Things Your Eye Color Reveals About You ! Meaning Of Every Different Eye Color. green eyes..hazel..blue..black...brown.. etc. Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ Watch our ”Things Body Language Reveals about You. The Truth” https://youtu.be/jmAO1BaYB-s Watch our ”15 Countries With The Most BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!” https://youtu.be/SnoAgMWFb6w Watch our ”12 SIGNS A GIRL LIKES YOU!” https://youtu.be/TttDdBXn-RQ 10) Brown eyes Do you remember Bob Marley's song “Looking in your big brown eyes”? Brown is the most common eye color. In fact, in some parts of the world, it would be incredibly difficult to find people with different eye color. Brown eye color is connected with a high amount of pigment called melanin. This might cause some health benefits: people with brown eyes are less likely to suffer from age-related macular degeneration, which may affect visual acuity. However, there are also downsides of having dark eyes. The researches show that women with brown eyes are more likely to be depressed than those with paler eyes. People with brown eyes are considered to be more trustworthy. University students in the Czech Republic were asked to look at 80 pictures of people at the age between 19 and 26 years old, 40 men and 40 women. Then they were supposed to rate people's trustworthiness on a 10 point scale. Those with brown eyes were ranked higher than the ones with blue eyes. Even though the correlation appears as obvious, it's not that simple. It was facial morphology linked to brown eyes that was more important than the eye color itself. 9)Black eyes Well, let's be honest – truly black eyes don't exist. They might be so dark that they look as if they were black, but the fact is that they're just very very dark, never truly black. The researches show that people with darker eyes are considered to be more agreeable. Some other studies show that people with black eyes are also better at sports that involve hitting targets and drink less alcohol than people with paler eyes. 8)Hazel eyes Hazel eyes often switch color from brown to green. People with this eyes color often have a multicolored iris. It's said that hazel eyes change the color with the mood. The truth is that they simply look different depending on the light and the surroundings, so, for example, the clothes one's wearing. Hazel eyes are still a little bit of a mystery, even if it comes to defining the color. Actually, it's a blend of various colors rather than a true color itself, which doesn't make it any less appealing. Just think of some celebrities that have hazel eyes: David Beckham, Penélope Cruz, Jessica Alba, Ben Affleck. They're all good looking and their unique eyes make them even more attractive. A picture of a hazel-eyed person, could be one of the celebrities mentioned Did you know that 74% of hazel eyes appear to have a brown ring around the pupil? They're still a lot less popular than brown ones and that's why the people with that eye color are told to be unique and mysterious. Due to a moderate amount of melanin, their personalities are considered balanced. Slightly ironically, according to Dr. Matthew Leach of the University of South Australia, the color might be caused by liver imbalance, which could make people with hazel eyes to be more vulnerable to digestive problems.! 7)Amber eyes Amber eyes are one of the rarest eye colors occurring among humans. Some researches indicate that only 0.01% of the human population have amber eyes. That eye color is, however, quite common among animals, such as cats, owls, eagles or wolves. That's why amber eyes are sometimes called “wolf eyes”. The color might be confused with hazel, but amber eyes are a solid gold hue. It doesn't contain other colors. The hue is caused by lipofuscin, a yellowish pigment of the iris. As many things that are unique, amber eyes are considered to be alluring. Some people even believe that they're a sign of supernatural powers. The truth is much less magical – the color is just a result of a series of mutations. So, despite some beliefs in traditional societies, it has nothing to do with turning into wolves or mystical creatures. No joke! 6)Green eyes Another very rare eye color is green. Although the world is lacking serious researches showing how many people have green eyes, for some reason, it is commonly quoted that it's 2% of the human population that are lucky to have that desired eye color. Why desired? Because green-eyed people are thought to be more attractive, creative, mysterious and passionate. It's difficult to say if it's true, but the fact itself that others think you're special just because you have green eyes is nice, right? Green eyes are undoubtedly beautiful, no question about..

8 Planets That Can Sustain Human Life (2018)
Stay tuned for the 8 planets that can sustain human life ! Is Life possible somewhere else? Where life exists in 2018?here some new promising planets discovered. earth like planets!

KOI 7711.01 In total, there are 4,496 planets that the Kepler space telescope has predicted exist, with more than half being confirmed planets. Of those planets, 30 of them are sized similarly to the Earth and are in the habitable zone next to their star. That's great news for future travelers looking to flee Earth to somewhere new. One of these potential planets that could sustain human life is known as KOI 7711.01. Added to the confirmed planet list in 2017, this spectacular place might be the planet most like Earth ever found. It's 1,700 light-years away, and orbits a star a lot like our own sun. So what's so special about KOI 7711.01? Well, it's about 30 percent larger than the Earth, and it's in the habitable zone. This means that it gets the right amount of heat to warm the planet like Earth. Plus, the solar warmth on this planet could help produce liquid water on the planet's surface. Now, don't get your spaceship ready and plot course to KOI 7711.01 just yet. There's still a lot scientists don't know about this planet yet. Although we get a similar amount of heat on Earth as we would on KOI 7711.01, we don't know whether it's really Earth's twin. Before people will ever travel there, assuming that we ever become technologically advanced enough to do so, we need to learn about the planet's atmosphere and whether there's water on the planet. And those are two really large ifs when it comes to sustaining life on another planet. 7. Kepler-186f Another planet that humans could potentially life on is Kepler-186f. This planet is incredibly special to humans, as it is the first validated Earth-sized planet that orbits a star in the habitable zone. Therefore, this planet gets enough energy from the sun from its distance away from its star, plus, it's in just the right location to potentially have water on its surface. Kepler-186f is really cool because it started things off when it came to searching for Earth-like planets. It was human's first confirmation that other planets like the Earth might actually exist. These planets are also our best chance of species survival in the event of a world-wide catastrophy. Kepler-186f is very close in size to the Earth, with Kepler-186f being even less than 10% larger. The only problem is that scientists don't know what its mass, composition, or density are. But don't despair. Scientific research suggests that based on its orbital pattern and location, this planet is most likely rocky. And that’s good news for us, as we would hate to try and land on a gassy planet, only to find out it doesn’t support life. Now, from what we do know, Kepler-186f is very different from the Earth in a number of ways. First, it's year is only 130 days long. It's also at the outer edge of the habitable zone, so the sun from that planet is as dim as our sun an hour before sunset. That means Kepler-186f doesn't receive nearly as much energy from its sun as we do ours here on Earth. 6. Gliese 832c Back in 2014, a group of astronomers at the University of New South Wales predicted the existence of a planet they called a super-Earth. They were looking at some planetary bodies that were previously discovered near the habitable zone of Gliese 832, which was known to host an exoplanet similar to Jupiter, when they discovered Gliese 832c. Gliese 832 is a sun that's much closer than any other Earth-like planet we've discussed so far. It's only 16 light-years from Earth and it's half as heavy and large as our sun. The planetary system surrounding Gliese 832 is almost a miniature version of our planetary system. That's because it has a giant outer planet, and an interior potentially rocky planet. Just like with every other planet that has been discovered in a habitable zone, we're uncertain as to what the atmosphere is like on Gliese 832c. However, we do know a few interesting things that might change your thoughts on one day moving to this super Earth. First, a year passes incredibly quickly, in only 35.68 days. The mass is over 5 times larger than Earths. On the other hand, it gets about the same amount of energy from its sun as we do ours. Regardless, if there is a similar atmosphere on this planet, then it has Earth-like temperatures that shift suddenly during the seasons. This would make seasonal shifts incredibly extreme..

10 Most Dangerous STDs ( Sexually Transmitted Diseases)
Did you know that transmitted diseases were at an all time high in the US last year? It is estimated that one in four Americans has an STD, while over 1 million STDs are acquired every day worldwide.

Trichomoniasis Trichomoniasis, colloquially known as trich, is an STD caused by the parasite Trichomonas . According to the World Health Organization, three are 160 million new cases of trich every year around the world, with between 5 and 8 million infections occurring in the US alone. The disease is most often spread throughl, or , but it can also spread through genital touching. Symptoms of trich may include itching in the genital area, a foul-smelling discharge, burning with urination, and pain during doing it. However, many infected people remain asymptomatic and can spread the disease even when the symptoms are not present. While trich can be easily treated with antibiotics, the parasite damages the inner lining of the which increases a woman’s risk of getting and can also lead to chronic inflammation of prostate in men which may eventually lead to prostate cancer. Methods of prevention include , using condoms, not douching, and getting tested for STDs with each new partner. 9. is an infection caused by simplex and one of the most common STDs in the world. Most infected people don’t experience any symptoms, but when symptoms do appear they typically include small blisters that break open to form painful ulcers on the genital area. Even though genital is most contagious when symptoms are present, it can still be passed to others in the absence of symptoms. The onset is usually around 4 days after exposure and symptoms can last up to 4 weeks. In addition to painful blisters, an infected person may also experience itching and burning sensation, discharge, fever, headache, muscle pain, enlarged lymph nodes, and general feeling of discomfort. Women also experience additional symptoms such as painful urination and inflammation of the cannot be cured and infection usually recurs four to six times per year. Complications are rare but may include bladder problems, meningitis, and an increased risk of. As with most STDs, prevention includes abstinence, using condoms, and only having with partners who have tested negative for HSV. 8. lice, better known as , are parasitic insects that primarily infest the or area of humans. Nits and live lice are often visible to the eye and adult lice can sometimes be seen crawling on the skin. In most cases, are transmitted through l activity but nonual transmission is also possible. For example, a person can get from sleeping in an infested bed, using infested towels, wearing infested clothing, or rarely by using an infested toilet seat. The main symptom of is intense itching in the -hair area, which gradually becomes stronger over several weeks following infestation. This itching is caused by an allergic reaction to the saliva produced by the parasite, and usually starts about five days after a person gets are treated with both over-the-counter and prescription medications and several rounds of treatment are usually needed to all of the newly hatched nymphs.contact should be avoided until all signs of infestation disappear. People with morepartners are at a greater risk of getting and since condoms do not provide effective protection, the only way to reduce your risk is through abstinence or mutual monogamy with an uninfected partner. 7. Chancroid Unlike , the next STD on our list is spread exclusively through ual contact. Chancroid, also known as soft chancre, is a bacterial infection mainly found in developing countries and among low socioeconomic populations. The symptoms of chancroid include ulcers and open sores in the genital area, pain with urination and .

But you don’t need to be a mind-reader to decide if a girl likes you or not. Just pay attention to these 12 amazingly simple signs that a girl likes you, and you’ll quickly get your answer. Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ Watch our “10 KISSING TRADITIONS From Around The World!” https://youtu.be/-RAVaw6il3k Are BOYS SMARTER than GIRLS? 8 Facts You Didn't Know About GENDER and INTELLIGENCE https://youtu.be/fXCd4w-2Zuw 1. She Texts You Back This one is a no brainer: if she responds to all your messages, instead of leaving you on ‘seen’ for days, she’s clearly got a thing for you. These days, texting and video chatting are a big part of the courtship process, and can often be as revealing as face-to-face interaction when it comes to working out if someone likes you. Most girls don’t like to waste time and pretend they like someone if they don’t, so you best believe she won’t be texting you back if she’s not interested. But if she responds to all your messages almost immediately and ends her texts with a question as a way to initiate more communication, you can rest assured this girl has a soft spot for you. Since our online conversations more often than not closely mimic real-life interactions, a girl that likes you will also include lots of emojis in her texts, such as hearts, blushing faces, and laughing emoticons. So, next time you see a girl’s text chockfull of emojis, you can be sure she’s head over heels for you! 2. She Maintains Eye Contact You’ve heard it a million times: eyes are the window to the soul. When it comes to figuring out whether a girl likes you or not, you just need to pay attention to their gaze. If a girl maintains firm eye contact with you while you’re talking, instead of darting her eyes left and right, she most certainly has a thing for you. And if she’s really into you, her pupils will dilate and she will often raise her eyebrows slightly while talking. Pupil dilation is controlled by your autonomic nervous system, which controls the eye muscles and makes your pupil dilate when you see something or someone you like. It’s an involuntary action that none of us are even aware of, unless we pay close attention to other people’s changing pupil size. So, next time you’re talking to a girl and you’re wondering if she likes you, just concentrate on her eyes and you’ll find out all you need to know. 3. She Laughs at Your Jokes Have you recently noticed that a girl you’ve been talking to keeps laughing at all of your jokes, even the lame ones? Well, good news: she’s trying to let you know you she sees you as more than a friend. Often times, if a girl is too shy to come up to you and strike up a conversation, she’ll just starting laughing every time you crack a joke to let you know she’s interested. Of course, if she only laughed at your not-so-funny joke one time, it doesn’t necessarily mean she wants to date you. But if this keeps happening all the time, she’s definitely trying to get your attention. So, next time you’re talking to a group of girls and you tell one of your cheesy jokes, pay attention to the one laughing the hardest. She’s trying to tell you something! 4. She Stands Close to You While nobody likes strangers getting too close and being all up in your personal space, that quickly changes when you’re around someone you like. If a girl has a thing for you, she’ll find just about any excuse to get physically close to you. She might scooch over to sit next to you in class, or keep ‘accidentally’ bumping into you at work. She’ll also keep leaning in during conversation and touch your arm or hand to show you that she feels comfortable around you. Also, when you’re in a large group of people, another great cue that a girl likes you is that she will position her body in a way that faces you directly, with her shoulders parallel to yours. Girls don’t usually zero in on only one person when they’re in a group, unless they really like that certain someone! 5. She Gets Nervous Around You It’s very hard to stay calm and composed when you’re around someone you have a crush on. You get butterflies in your stomach, your palms get sweaty, and you just can’t seem to stop fidgeting around. All of these are pretty hard to hide, so next time you’re talking to a girl, pay attention to these subtle signs of nervousness. When people talk to someone they’re interested in romantically, they’ll often become very self-conscious and become aware of their every move. Does the girl you’re talking to keep stumbling over her words, giggling too much, and playing with her hair? That just means she’s nervous because she likes you and is trying very hard not to say or do anything embarrassing.

20 Fattest Countries In The World (2018)
Americans are the fattest nation in the world, right? Wrong! That title belongs to a tiny island nation in Central Pacific. Keep watching to find out which 20 countries are the fattest in the world in 2018 ! 20. Bahamas The Bahamas might be a dream destination for tourists from all over the world, but this country also has the highest percentage of overweight people in Latin American and the Caribbean. Nearly 70% of the Bahamian population is overweight and Bahamian women have a significantly higher rate of obesity than men. The obesity rate for Bahamian women is 42.5% and Bahamian men 29.7 %. Bahamas also has one of the highest rates of diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases in the world. The obesity epidemic in the Bahamas is often blamed on traditional cuisine that features meals full of fat, sugar and salt. However, people in the Bahamas are also eating more processed fast-food than ever due to economic growth, increased urbanization, and the integration of the region into international markets. 19. United Arab Emirates In the United Arab Emirates metabolic risks associated to obesity and a high body mass index are the biggest contributing factor of and disease. If the obesity rates continue to grow at this pace, it is predicted that healthcare spending in the Emirates will more than double to $47.5 billion by 2040. Obesity is becoming a huge problem among children and adolescents in the UAE and records show that nearly 40% of all children enrolled in Grade 8 in the emirate of Abu Dhabi are classified as either overweight or obese. Health regulators in this country are currently discussing the implementation of front-of-pack labeling for pre-packaged foods, as well as a 20% decrease in the sugar content of food products in an attempt to curb the spread of obesity. 18. Lebanon Over the last 12 years, levels of obesity among children and young people in Lebanon have risen dramatically - from 20.0% to 21.2% in the 6-19 year old population. The rise in obesity rates is partially blamed on changing lifestyles, particularly the rise of sedentary behavior in the child and adolescent population, which has increased from 19.9% in 1997 to 60.5% in 2009. The average Lebanese diet has also changed significantly in recent decades, leading to a rise in average energy intake of 850 kcal per person per day between 1970 and 2005. The obesity prevalence among Lebanese adults, of 27.4% for men and 28.8% for women, places this country above countries in western and northern Europe. 17. Egypt A diet full of sugar, meat and simple carbs coupled with few opportunities for exercise have left 62% of Egyptians overweight. An average serving at Egyptian restaurants contains an estimated 800 calories, which is more than a third of recommended daily caloric intake for men and more than half for women. In Egypt, obesity doesn’t seem to be bound by social class. Low-income families turn to rice and potato dishes to fill stomachs at the end of a long day, while the wealthy who can afford to eat meat with almost every meal, also have access to fast food, which is considered a luxury in the Middle East. Sugar-addiction is also a big problem in Egypt. Egyptians from all walks of life add sugar in their tea, and have five or six of these per day, each with two or three teaspoons of sugar in it. 16. Turkey While nearly 1 billion people around the world are starving, obesity is becoming a severe health problem for the rest of the world and Turkey is no exception. According to the Turkish Health Ministry, over 30% of all adults of 19 years of age and above in Turkey are considered to be extremely overweight. In Turkish children aged between 7 and 14-years-old, the prevalence of obesity is 12-15%, while 27-28% of adult males and 32-35% of adult females in Turkey are classified as obese. Besides smoking and alcohol consumption, the most concerning issue for Turkey’s health future is inactivity. It is estimated that less than 20% of Turks can be considered active, and over 50% of Turkish children only spend two hours outside the house at the weekend and even less during the week. Before we move on to #15, quickly subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss any of our upcoming videos! 15. Jordan Government health reports in Jordan indicate that about 40% of Jordanian adults are overweight and child obesity stands at more than 50%. There are also over 300,000 new cases of diabetes in Jordan each year, mostly related to excessive weight gain. In Jordan, almost twice as many women are considered obese as men, which is why Jordan’s Queen Rania has launched the Royal Health Awareness Society initiative to increase public awareness and promote the benefits of sports and leading a healthy life.

10 People Who Survived the Impossible
From being sliced in half by a speeding train to having your brain pierced by an iron rod...here are 10 people who survived the impossible! 10. Aron Ralston Aron Ralston, the man whose amazing story inspired the Academy Award-nominated film 127 Hours, is a living proof that there’s nothing more powerful than the human instinct to survive. On April 26, 2003, Aron Ralston was hiking alone through Blue John Canyon in Utah when a huge rock became dislodged and crushed his right hand against the canyon wall. Aron spent five days trying to free his arm while sipping his remaining water and eating his last two burritos. After running out of food and water on the fifth day, he carved his name, date of birth and date of death into the canyon wall and videotaped his last goodbyes before passing out from dehydration. However, Aron woke up the next day and noticed that his arm had started to decompose from the lack of circulation. Desperate and delirious, he suddenly realized that he could break his arm bones using torque against his trapped arm and amputate his forearm with a knife. After this unimaginably painful procedure, Aron hiked out of the canyon and was found by a family of tourists from the Netherlands who alerted the authorities. 9. Roy Sullivan Roy Sullivan was a United States park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia who miraculously survived no fewer than SEVEN lightning strikes between 1942 and 1977. Nicknamed "Human Lightning Rod", Sullivan is recognized by Guinness World Records as the person struck by lightning more recorded times than any other human being in history. Sullivan’s first documented lightning strike occurred in April 1942. He was hiding from a thunderstorm in a fire lookout tower which was hit seven or eight times. After running out of the tower, Sullivan received what he considered to be his worst lightning strike. The strike burned a half-inch strip all along his right leg, hit his toe, and left a hole in his shoe. The following five strikes occurred in 1969, 1970, 1972, 1973, and 1976. Sullivan’s last strike took place in 1977 when he was fishing in a freshwater pool. To put things into perspective, the odds of getting struck by lightning once in your lifetime are about 1 in 280,000,000 while the odds of getting struck seven times are 4.15 in 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000! 8. Frane Selak If you don’t believe in luck, just wait till you hear about Frane Selak - a Croatian man who cheated death on seven different occasions! Selak's first brush with death took place in 1962 when the train he was riding flipped off the tracks and crashed in a river. Selak was the only person who survived while 17 other passengers drowned. The following year, during Selak’s first plane ride, he was blown out of a malfunctioning plane door and landed in a haystack. The plane crashed killing everyone else on board. Three years later, Selak was riding a bus which skidded off the road and fell into a river. Four passengers drowned while Selak managed to swim to the shore and escape with only a few cuts and bruises. Selak’s fourth close encounter with death happened in 1970 when his car caught fire, while another driving incident took place three years later when the engine of his car was doused with hot oil from a malfunctioning fuel. Selak escaped both of the incidents unharmed. In 1995, Selak was struck by a bus in Zagreb, but sustained only minor injuries. Finally, in 1996 Selak cheated death for the seventh time when he escaped unharmed from a head-on collision with a truck. To top it all off, in 2003 Selak won €800,000 in the lottery! Some people just seem to have all the luck! Before we move on with our list, take a second to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss any of the amazing content we’ve got coming up! 7. Mauro Prosperi With blazing heat, extremely low humidity, lack of vegetation, and sand temperatures that can reach 80 °C, Sahara Desert is the last place you’d want to get stranded in without food or water. This is exactly what happened to Mauro Prosperi, Italian police officer who got lost in the Sahara Desert during an endurance event in 1994.

10  Creatures Of The Amazon Jungle You Should Watch Out!
these are 12 creatures of the jungle you should watch out! 10. Bullet Ant Bullet ant is the largest of all ants in the world. They’re mostly found in lowland rainforests of Nicaragua and Paraguay. As their names suggests, bullet ants are capable of delivering an incredibly painful sting. In fact, the sting by a bullet ant is 30 times more painful than of a wasp or a honey bee. According to some victims, the sting produces waves of burning, throbbing, all-consuming that feels like being shot. The one-inch sized bullet ant also called as ’24-hour ant’ by locals. Why? Oh, it’s only because the pain caused by its sting can last one full day. In fact, some indigenous tribes of Brazil use intentional bullet ant stings as part of their initiation rites to become warriors. The ants are first submerged in a natural sedative to knock them unconscious and then hundreds of them are woven into gloves made of leaves, with their stingers facing inward. When the ants regain consciousness, a boy slips the gloves onto his hands. The goal of this initiation rite is to keep the glove on for a full 5 minutes. When finished, the boy's hand and part of his arm are temporarily paralyzed because of the ant venom, and he may shake uncontrollably for days. To fully complete the initiation, however, the boys must go through the ordeal a total of 20 times over the course of several months or even years! 9. Green anaconda The green anaconda, also known as the common anaconda and water boa, is a non-venomous boa species found in South America. So if it’s non-venomous you’re probably wondering how come it’s one of the most dangerous jungle-dwellers. Well, for one the green anaconda is the heaviest and one of the longest known snake species, reaching up to 5.2 meters in length. The longest and heaviest specimen ever encountered was a female measuring 5.21 m long and weighing 97.5 kg. This large, powerful snake s its prey by constriction, which means it will squeeze the prey until it stops breathing. Then the anacondas will swallow the danimal by the whole. The anaconda can open its mouth large enough to swallow its victim whole, with the victim being as big as a deer. Experts state that the anaconda is the only predator naturally strong enough to prey on a jaguar. Their diet mainly includes deer, caiman, crocodiles, turtles, and fish. While green anacondas are not man-eaters by nature, there have been a few documented attacks on the human by anacondas. In 2013, a green anaconda that had escaped from a pet store led two young boys in Canada. The children, who were 5 and 7-years-old, were sleeping over at a friend's apartment located above a reptile store in northern New Brunswick when the snake attacked them. A pathologist later said that the snake had coiled itself around two young boys, strangling them and biting them repeatedly.

The Amazonian giant centipede, also known as Peruvian giant yellow-leg centipede, is one of the largest centipedes in the world, with a length up to 12 inches (or 30 centimeters). This species is found in various places in South America and the Caribbean. As a carnivore, Amazonian giant centipede feeds on any other animal it can overpower andl. It can actually overpower not only other invertebrates such as large insects, spiders, millipedes, scorpions, and tarantulas, but also small vertebrates including small lizards, frogs, snakes, birds, mice, and bats. Large individuals of this species have been known to employ unique strategies to catch bats in which they climb cave ceilings and hold or manipulate their heavier prey with only a few legs attached to the ceiling. The giant centipede is venomous. Composed of acetylcholine, histamine and serotonin, among other things, the venom paralyses, but normally doesn’tl the prey. However, in 2014, a four-year-old child in Venezuela died after being bitten by a giant centipede which was hidden inside an open soda can. 7. Brazilian wandering spider Brazilian wandering spiders, also called armed spiders or banana spiders, belong to the genus Phoneutria, which means "murderess" in Greek. And it's no wonder why - it's one of the most venomous spiders on Earth. Its bite can be to humans, especially children. There are eight species of Brazilian wandering spider, all of which can be found in Brazil.

Top 10 SCHOOL PUNISHMENTS that went way too far
School is a stressful, stressful place for children! They need to make friends, do a lot of hard work and also stay out of trouble! But these punishments seem way to drastic! From being arrested for burping, to being fined money for protecting yourself against a bully, we count the top 10 school punishments that went to far! 10. Punishment with a duffel bag This particular instance of punishment has resulted in 9-year-old Christopher Baker becoming reserved and uncommunicative. Christopher Baker suffers from Autism, a condition which requires care and slight supervision. Well, his school enacted a treatment that was completely contrary to this well established treatment of those with autism. Christopher Baker was put into a duffel bag and it was zipped up. His mother tells of how she came to the school to see him to find him zipped up in the bag. He called out to her, and when they were able to get him out, his eyes were ‘as big as dollar bills’ and he had become incredibly quiet, with a terrified look in his eyes. The mum went on to say how Christopher has not been the same since the incident, and that if this ‘therapy’ was enacted on a child with autism, it would be considered abuse. 9. Punished for eating With all the things in American news at the moment about gun control around schools and safeguarding children’s lives, this story is especially important. A seven-year-old was enjoying his lunch. He was eating a pop tart, and seemingly got bored with how the tarts were classically shaped and thought he’d play around a bit! He bit parts of it off very carefully as he tried to create a mountain range with his food. Now playing with your food isn’t the best way to spend your time, but this seems a bit ridiculous. A teacher obviously mistook the child’s playful shape making as him trying to make a gun shape out of his pop tart, and suspended him for 2 days. This is definitely an overreaction to a child just playing with his food a bit, especially since whoever punished the kid actually mistook a mountain range for a gun! 8. Arrested for burping! Everyone likes a bit of burping! It may seem a bit rude and bad mannered, but you can’t help but laugh when someone does it! Well this particular school wasn’t playing around, and they definitely weren’t finding burping funny at all! A 13-year-old boy was actually taking to a juvenile detention centre when he was caught burping in class. Suitably unhappy with this punishment, the child’s parents sued the school, the teacher and also the police officer who apprehended their son. It definitely seems like a bit of an overreaction to a burp! I would suggest just letting the child know that burping is not a sign of very good manners and warning them not to do it again! Arresting the child is probably not the best way of teaching them this lesson! 7. Sent to jail for a butter knife! Y’know how it is when you are at school, you’re so busy and the school day is so chaotic that you just forget what you are throwing into your school bag. Usually it’s just school trip letters or spare bits of your lunch that get lost and forgotten in the maelstrom of your bag. But, you should probably try and clear it out as much as possible. As its contents could get you arrested. That’s what happened to an 11-year-old in Florida! She had no idea there was a butter knife in her bag. However, it was found, and she was swiftly arrested! She was suspended for 10 whole days. And not only that, but she was also charged by the police for possession of a deadly weapon! You can definitely understand the panic and worry surrounding the knife being in her bag, but if it was definitely an accident, then there should be no reason to get the police involved! 6. Cone of shame! This one comes from Florida again, after showing their class the pixar movie ‘Up’, they decided that one of the best ways in which to punish the students would be to put them in dog cones. If you don’t know what these are they are the big cones that you see on dogs that ensure that the dog doesn’t chew its stiches when it has had an operation. Though it might look a bit comical to us seeing pictures of students in these cones. We can imagine that it probably wasn’t the nicest thing for the students who were punished. And it was probably pretty embarrassing too, sometimes embarrassing a student isn’t the best way of getting through to them! Thankfully the superintendent of the school didn’t really see the funny side either and has actually recommended the teacher be fired for her strange and abusive practices! What was this teacher thinking when she came up with this punishment! Note to self, the best place to look for punishments is probably not pixar movies! 5...

Gold farming Are you a video game addict who doesn’t mind spending hours in front of the computer screen? Then gold farming might just the perfect side job for you – and no it has nothing to do with digging shafts and crushing rocks in actual gold mines. Gold farming or virtual farming refers to the practice of playing massively multiplayer online games such as World of Warcraft in order to acquire game currency which you later sell for real money. Gold farming is popular all over the globe, but China and South Korea have the highest numbers of gold farmers in the world. It is estimated that around 500,000 Asian workers are employed in the gold farming industry which means that gold farming is quickly becoming a big business. As of 2006, the gold farming industry sales of virtual currency amount to anywhere between $200 and 900 million. However, don’t expect to become a millionaire overnight by playing video games. Acquiring gold in massively multiplayer online games can take a long time and the average wage for Chinese gold farmers is around $150 a month. 9. Streaking The act of running naked through a public place – popularly known as streaking - is a common sight on sports events, concerts, and award shows. While the majority of streakers are simply thrill-seekers looking for their 15 minutes of fame, some of them have turned streaking into a full time job. Meet Mark Roberts - a professional British streaker who has been running naked in international events for over two decades. Mark’s first streaking escapade happened in 1993 during a trip to Hong Kong when a bar owner dared him to run naked in front of a crowd. Ever since then, Mark has been hooked on streaking and as of 2013 he has crashed over 500 different events, including Super Bowl, FIFA World Cup, Mr. Universe and Miss World contest, tennis matches, the bull run in Pamplona, the synchronized swimming world championship in Barcelona, and dozens of association football matches. But Mark doesn’t just streak for the fun of it – he also gets paid by sponsors to have their name written on his chest when he storms these huge events in his birthday suit. How much money would it take for you to run naked in front of millions of people? Let us know in the comment section below and hit that subscribe button before we move on with our list! 8. Removing head lice Ugh, the very thought of head lice makes my skin crawl. These pesky little creatures don’t just cause intense itching on your scalp, but are also notoriously difficult to get rid of and can cause serious skin infections if left untreated. It is estimated that there are between 6 and 12 million new cases of head lice infestations each year in the United States and most of them occur in children ages 3 – 11. Fortunately, millions of parents can now breathe a sigh of relief because they no longer have to deal with their children’s head lice on their own. They can simply hire a professional head lice removal technician. Yes, you heard it right. There are people out there who make money by removing lice from other people’s heads. These services have become so popular that professional lice removal is now a multi-million dollar industry. The prices however are quite high. Rates vary depending on the business, but the industry standard is around $100 per hour and it usually takes several combing treatments to remove lice for good. What do you think: is it worth the money? 7. Wearing T-shirts You know we live in a crazy world when you can get paid simply for wearing clothes! And when we say paid, we mean really PAID. Just look at Jason Sadler, an entrepreneur from Florida who first began wearing T-shirts for companies in 2008 as a way to make some extra money during the recession without actually 'working'. Fast forward a couple of years, and Jason was earning around $80,000 a year just for wearing T-shirts with logos on them. After freelancing for a few years, Jason founded his own company I Wear Your T-Shirt with four other shirt wearers. In a 2012 interview with Business Insider, Jason revealed that he and his partners were making six figures for wearing T-shirts for clients such as Starbucks, Pizza Hut, Nissan, Zappos, Arizona Tea, and Lucky Brand. By Jason’s own confession, the weirdest.

12 Secrets The Secret Service Don't Want You To Know About
Ever wonder what secrets the men in black that surround the president are hiding behind those mirrored shades and grimaced faces? I’m Lorenzo bringing you 12 Secrets the Secret Service wants to keep secret. That’s a lot of secrets... 12 - Mobile Blood Banks This just goes to show that the protection of the president is the ultimate and far-reaching goal of the Secret Service. Select agents carry blood bags of the same type as the President’s. They are trained how to transfuse the blood in situations that require lifesaving measures. They call this training and procedure “10 minute medicine.” Random agents, all trained in the same manner whether they are protecting the President or not, are chosen during shift change to reduce the chance of a targeted attack. And if something happens to the individual, the presidential limo is a blood-bank on wheels, fully equipped with a large quantity of the President’s blood type. It is the Secret Service’s duty to ensure in the face of a life threatening situation, the President is stabilized. And because they plot out their drive path never more than 10 minutes away from a trauma center, with agents that know the operating staff stationed at each, its no wonder the President of the United States is considered the world’s most protected man...and least private. 11 - They Never Leave the President Alone...Ever Yes...even in the bathroom. It’s infamously known that when President Regan was in office he had a colonoscopy and prostate exam...and you better believe a member of the Secret Service was standing right beside him. How’s that for lack of privacy? But it wasn’t always so strict on protection. The modern rules and regulations were built upon a foundation of blood -- successful and attempted assassinations supplying the mortar. 10 - Thorough Investigation of Potential Assassins. Its probably not a good idea to threaten the President. In today’s day an age threats can appear everywhere, especially on the internet and in large quantities to boot... It’s up to the Secret Service to filter and investigate each and every one to determine validity or misbegotten anger. If threats are found as “potential” every aspect of that person’s life is investigated. Neighbors, colleagues, friends, family, etc. are interviewed to determine if the person is serious. And if a person is found to be serious they are to determine whether you should be warned, admitted for psychiatric care, or slapped with a Class E. felony. It’s a blurred line between freedom of speech, but it’s safe to assume big brother has some sort of probe on the internet that flags content related to threats directed at the President. (MORE) 2. I can’t imagine this as a small task for the Secret Service, especially when it borders the edge of protecting the president and breaching citizen rights. 09 - They Don’t Only Protect the President President and Vice Presidents have no option in the matter -- they get Secret Service protection, and that privacy invasion entailed thereafter. They can swap to their own private security after their term, but “Security” is no choice for these two men while in their political roles. Ronald Kessler, author of In the President’s Secret Service, stated that agents had only begun to follow the president around tirelessly after the September 11th attacks at the instruction of President Bush. The president can assign their protection to anyone including their children, in positions outside of their schools, their spouses, or anyone the president deems necessary for protection services. The president can determine who they protect, but he can’t deny his own. 08 - They Film Everything Zapruder, the highly controversial film highlighting the assassination of John F. Kennedy, despite the nature of its content, was found to be an invaluable educational tool for how quickly a situation can spin out of control, and is a required study for every agent assigned to the Secret Service. 3. And because of its usefulness, they film everything in the unlikely case it may be the evidence, or learning, they need to solve a investigation and improve on their protection services. An example of such is recent. Someone threw something at Donald Trump while he was visited at his Mar-a-Lago resort. The Secret Service was able to view the footage, identify and confront the individual in question.

10 Saddest Animal Life Stories That Will Make You Cry
From an elephant ruthlessly killed by poachers to a dog who gave his life to save a group of children - get your tissues ready, because these are top 10 saddest animal life stories! 10. Polar bear Arturo On July 3, 2016, Arturo, the saddest polar bear in the world, died in Mendoza Zoological Park in Mendoza, Argentina. Arturo was born in the United States and transferred to Argentina in 1993. After his faithful companion, a female bear named Pelusa, died of cancer in 2012, Arturo’s health began to decline and he made headlines when it was discovered that he was living in appalling conditions. The temperatures in Mendoza would regularly reach up to 40 °C and the pool in Arturo's cage was only 20 inches deep. Animal rights activists launched a petition to have him moved to a zoo in Canada, arguing that Arturo was showing symptoms of depression and other mental health problems. Visitors to the zoo and animal experts reported seeing him pacing nervously in his concrete enclosure and struggling with the high temperatures. He was seen tilting his head and showing his teeth while pacing back and forth and rocking from side to side – all of which are believed to be symptoms of stress in bears. However, the Mendoza zoo couldn’t supply the necessary medical records to make the trip possible and director of the zoo claimed that Arturo was too old to be sedated and moved to Canada. Shortly after that, a blood circulation imbalance caused a general decline in Arturo’s health and he died at the Mendoza zoo – alone and depressed. 9. Hachiko the dog Nothing proves the fact that we don’t deserve dogs more than the heartbreaking story of Hachikō, the most faithful dog in the world. Hachikō was an Akita Inu born on a farm near the city of Ōdate, Japan. After Hachikō’s owner died, this incredible dog waited for him at the Shibuya Station for over nine years. During his lifetime, Hachikō was held up in Japanese culture as an example of fidelity and long after his death he continues to be commemorated in worldwide popular culture. Hachikō was adopted in 1924 by Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the Tokyo Imperial University. Professor Ueno would commute daily to work, and Hachikō would leave the house to greet him at the end of each day at the nearby Shibuya Station. But on May 21, 1925, Ueno didn’t return at the usual time. It turned out that the professor had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage while giving a lecture and died without ever returning to the train station where his beloved Hachikō waited. Every single day for the next nine years, nine months and fifteen days Hachikō waited Ueno's return, appearing precisely when the train was supposed to arrive at the station. After a local newspaper published an article about the loyal dog, people started bringing Hachikō treats and food and he soon became a national sensation. Hachikō’s undying loyalty to his master's memory impressed the people of Japan and teachers and parents used him an example for children to follow. Then one March day, almost ten years after he last saw his master, Hachikō died at the age of 11. His remains were cremated and his ashes were buried in Aoyama Cemetery, Minato, Tokyo where they rest beside those of Hachikō's beloved owner, Professor Ueno. On March 9, 2015, the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Tokyo unveiled a bronze statue showing Ueno returning to meet Hachikō and each year on March 8, Hachikō's devotion is honored with a ceremony of remembrance at Tokyo's Shibuya railroad station. 8. Satao the elephant Satao was one of Kenya's largest African elephants who had tusks that were so long that they almost touched the ground. He was born during the late 1960s and lived in Tsavo East National Park - one of the largest wildlife parks in the world with a large population of elephants. Sadly, on 30 May 2014 this majestic animal was killed by poachers using a poisoned arrow. Satao was estimated to be one of the largest elephants in the world at the time of his death and was described as one of Kenya's most iconic and well-known male elephants. Because of the great value of his tusks on the black market, Satao was under nearly constant protection by the Kenya Wildlife Service. While he usually remained in a small area of the park, shortly before his death he had started roaming into areas of the park where poaching was high. In March 2014, Satao was found with two small wounds in his flank from poisoned arrows shot into him.

let me introduce you do a time that is even more surreal than this, I speak of course, of the time of the Roman Empire. Here are 10 crazy facts, about the Romans! Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ 10 Gladiator blood if anyone has studied the ancient romans or even seen the film Gladiator starring Russell Crowe, then they’ll know that Gladiators were some of the bravest men of the time. They would do battle against fearsome creatures, and each other for the crowd’s enjoyment. It must have taken heaps of bravery to perform some of the feats that they did. And you could make a pretty easily won bet that people aspired to be like them for the strength passion and bravery. But, this takes it a bit too far. At the time of the Roman Empire, people were known to drink Gladiators blood to cure ailments such as epilepsy. Really? What is it like a Gladiator health drink? Crowds would react in horror when a Gladiators blood was spilled in the ring of battle, so why would they be so eager to drink said blood in the hopes that it would heal them? It really is a window into how nonsensical medical practices were at that time. 9 The colour purple A lot of the time, you will find that people often associate the colour purple with royalty, luxury and aristocracy. Throughout history is a colour that has been utilised a lot by the higher echelons of society. And this was no different in the roman times. In fact, the colour purple was pretty much reserved for emperors. And if anyone else was caught completely clothed in anything that resembled a shade of purple, it would be considered treason. Also, what is interesting is that to achieve a purple die to make emperors clothes from, they used to crush murex seashells as it was the only way to get a good bold purple dye material. So if you travel in time back to the Roman age, make sure not to wear your lovely purple shirt! 8 Nero wasn’t very nice it is no secret that Roman Emperors ruled with an incredibly callous regime and came down on anyone that disobeyed them with an iron fist. Nero however, somewhat pushed the envelope in terms of callousness. He was suspicious that his mother Agirippa the younger was trying to rule the kingdom by proxy, through him. And so he tried to stage a shipwreck for her to be killed in, unfortunately for him however, this did not work. So, he just got one of his subjects to kill her and called it a suicide… definitely would not like to get on the wrong side of him. A lot of historians believe he was also behind the Great Fire of Rome, a massive blaze of flames that burned for a week. In reply to this, Nero blamed Christians, and it is written that he brutally murdered a great deal of them after. 7. pee was big business Yep, that’s right. Urine was a hot commodity in ancient roman times. People even used to go around collecting it from public urinals, or store their own urine up. There was even a tax system set in place for the selling and buying of urine. What did they use it for? Do you really want to know? Well, they washed their clothes with it, by getting a big tub of urine together and just dumping clothes in there, which would be followed by someone stomping on the clothes to wash the pee out. And that isn’t even the worst of it, they used to clean their teeth with it. In some areas it was treated as we treat mouthwash now, as people believed it helped their teeth to remain shiny and intact. 6. Exploding toilets Think you could just about get by in Roman times, even with everyone smelling like urine. Well, I have news for you, toilets regularly exploded. Ready for a Roman science lesson? Well toilets were usually built in large groups, so there would be such a huge methane build up, that when you went into one, there was actually a chance that the methane would ignite and everybody would be caught in the explosion. Imagine that, dying because of gas. Well if that doesn’t worry you enough, you had to check the toilet bowl thoroughly, as there was known to be creatures lurking in the sewage systems. Had enough? Thought so. 5. Strange punishments One of the worst crimes you could commit in ancient roman times was killing your father. Reportedly the common punishment for this crime, was to be thrown in a bag with both a snake and a cat and hurled off of a bridge. But the weirdest thing is, that the punishment was so cruel and unusual, the emperors rarely ever gave it. Instead they asked the person straight, ‘did you kill your father?’ and oftentimes just believed the person regardless of whether they were lying or not! An interesting insight into the strange world and of Roman crime and punishment. 4 Women Gladiators !..

10 Most DANGEROUS PRISONS In The World (2018)
Hi ! It S lorenzo here ., there are extremely dangerous prisons that convicts call home. These are SOMETHING of the most dangerous prisons in the world. 10 San Quentin Prison The only death row in the whole of California belongs in the north of San Francisco, in the town of San Quentin. The prisons capacity is around 3000 but it houses 3700, and actually has a gas chamber on site. Don’t worry, this gas chamber isn’t used anymore, as executions are carried out by lethal injection. Its inmates include Ramon Salcido; who murdered several people in 1989, and Richard Farley; who killed seven co-workers in 1992. The conditions of San Quentin Prison are not good at all, convicted double murderer Mila Johnson told a reporter that there was ‘minimal human contact’ in the prison. The dreaded maximum cell block is called the Adjustment Center, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a pretty scary name! All of San Quentin’s death row inmates are housed within San Quentin Prison’s walls, which is probably the reason why it’s so dangerous, and has to be so secure. 9 Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary We’re going off the coast of California now. To the off shore prison, the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. This is a maximum, high-security federal prison with a capacity of only 312. Fortunately it is closed now as it was shut in 1963 due to ongoing investigations and high expenses. When it was in service it housed famous prisoners, such as: Al Capone, George ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly, and Whitey Bulger. The prison gained notoriety early on for being the toughest prison in America. A few prisoners even disliked it so much, that it led them to suicide. One Rufe Persful chopped his fingers off after grabbing an axe from a firetruck, afterwards begging another inmate to do the same to his other hand. In 1939, the attorney general at the time was reported in saying ‘the whole institution is conductive to psychology that builds up a sinister ambitious attitude among prisoners’. In 1962, one of the most intricate prison escapes ever devised, where 3 men chiselled away at concrete from around an air vent using a metal spoon soldered with silver. They put paper machied models of themselves under their bedclothes to trick the guards. Judging by this behaviour, it must have been pretty bad! 8 Stanley Prison Hong Kong We are leaving America now, and going to China, to an extremely secure establishment. Stanley Prison is one of six maximum security facilities built around 1940. It is now a Correctional Services Department, with a capacity of 1700 and a staff of over 800. Before the day Hong Kong decided to get rid of the death penalty, the Stanley Prison was a popular place in which to do it. The last ever execution was actually performed in Stanley Prison in November 1966. Early in 2017 there was supposedly ‘mass indiscipline’, and heavily armed anti-riot prison guards ended what 130 inmates deemed a hunger strike, as they occupied the dining hall. Their protest was supposedly against disciplinary actions against three of their fellow prisoners, as they had laundered inmate uniforms. Although the strike was only able to last a few hours, it shows that conditions and management of the prison are strict and heavy in their disciplinary nature. Montelupich Prison, Krakow To Poland now, to have a look at one of the ‘most terrible Nazi prisons in Poland’. At its beginnings, the Montelupich Prison was predominantly filled with Polish political prisoners and victims of the infamous Gestapo street raids carried out in Poland, throughout World War 2. The number of prisoners that died in Montelupich Prison is estimated to be around 50,000, a huge number that’s a testament to the atrocities and the danger of such a place. After its use in World War 2, the Montelupich became a Soviet Prison used to torture Polish members of the ‘Home Army’. Nowadays it is a detention centre. And, most notably was the location of the last administration of the death penalty in Poland, around 1988. Some say, the place has not lost its evil reputation since it was occupied by the Nazi’s, due to the death of a Romanian detainee named Claudiu Crilic, who died while taking part in a hunger strike in 2008. Vladimir Central Prison To Russia now, and largest prison in the country, aptly named Vladimir Prison. It’s houses 1220 detainees and is run by the Federal Penitentiary Service. Most inmates of the Vladimir are serving sentences lasting from ten years to life. The prison is extremely old, having been established in 1783 by Empress Catherine the Second. Former inmates speak of raging disease..

10 Things You Need to Know When Dealing With the Police
10 Things You Need to Know When Dealing With the Police From refusing searches to never petting police dogs, here are 10 things you need to know when dealing with the police. 10. You have the right to remain silent It’s a phrase you’ve heard countless times in movies, so you probably already know that you don’t have to answer any questions when the police pull you over. All you have to do is give the officer your license, registration, and insurance card. Keep in mind though that the situation will go more smoothly if you simply say “I prefer not to speak” instead of not saying anything at all. Otherwise, the officer is going to waste a lot of your time trying to figure out why you’re acting so strange. If you go ahead and tell them what you're up to from the start, they will understand your silence and won’t ask you any further questions about what's wrong. Of course, if you are simply unable to comply with something the officer told you to do you're probably going to have to use your words. For example, if the officer asks for your insurance card and you don't have it in the car with you, don't just sit there ignoring the officer. You're going to need to let him know that you can't give him the card rather than leave him with the impression that you refuse to give it to him. In case you get arrested, only give the officer your name and tell them you don’t want to answer any questions until you get a lawyer. It doesn’t matter whether you’re innocent or not or whether the crime you committed is something small or something serious – nothing good can come out of trying to talk your way out of this situation. If you are being placed under arrest, it means the cop has already decided that you’ve done something wrong and talking can only get you into more trouble further down the line. Remember: anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law! 9. Never touch a police officer This is probably the worst thing you can do when dealing with the police. If you try to touch any part of a police officer’s uniform, the officer may think you’re grabbing for their gun, badge, or that you’re trying to hurt them. If the police think you are trying to hurt them, they may put you in handcuffs to keep themselves safe. And that’s if you’re lucky! In a lot of cases, touching a police officer will get you either tasered or beaten. The simplest touch of a police officer can be considered assault, so just don't do it! If police don’t have a lawful reason to search you or your bags and you don’t consent to a search, clearly state this to police. But only verbally! Don’t try to push the officer away. Remember that the police are already under enough stress and have to be on super high alert at all times, which means if they feel threatened they can and will defend themselves. You are also not allowed to touch police dogs, not matter how adorable they are. Keep in mind that police dogs, also known as K9s, are actual police and are working when they are in uniform. They too are considered police officers, so keep your hands to yourself! 8. Don’t resist arrest If you are put under arrest, whatever the circumstances and whether or not you’re innocent, the most important thing to remember is not to fight the officer who is detaining you. Not only could this result in a far more serious charge, but it could also lead to your getting hurt. Anything you think is unfair, unjust, or unlawful about the arrest will have to be determined in court. The moment the police officer says you are under arrest, he or she is indicating that they are going to take you into custody - and if you resist... well, just remember that they’re the ones with the weapons and hand-to-hand combat training so you’re very likely to get injured. It doesn’t matter if you’re innocent, if you’re being arrested unfairly, or if the police are deliberately arresting you for something that they know you didn’t do – just don’t resist! You should also be sure to keep your hands visible at all times. Don’t reach into your pockets, bag, or the glove compartment, unless instructed to do so. The officer may worry you are reaching for a weapon and shoot you. In fact, in the United States up to 97% of the people fatally shot by police every year are killed during the course of an arrest that goes bad when the people try to resist.

World's 10 Greatest Magic Tricks Revealed
How many times have you watched a magician performing a cool trick and wished you knew how they did it! Well, you no longer have to wonder because today Insane Curiosity reveals the World's 10 Greatest Magic Tricks in the world. But before we begin: go ahead and subscribe to our channel for more amazing content. Done? OK, let’s hop right in! 10. Linking rings Linking rings trick is one of the staple tricks of every illusion magic performer. In this trick, a magician appears to link and unlink solid metal rings, forming long chains. The trick was popularized by 19th century Chinese stage magician Ching Ling Foo, but it is thought to have originated in the Middle East in the 1st century. One method of performing this trick is to use a mix of solid rings and key rings that contain an opening. The magician then links the rings together by keeping the opening on the key rings concealed with his hands. The other method takes a little bit more skill and it involves using two or more solid rings that are already linked together and cannot be separated. In this case, the magician will use sleight of hand to create an illusion of linking and separating the rings. 9. Turning a $1 into a $100 bill Everybody enjoys magic tricks that involve money, especially when you make it look like you can easily turn $1 into a $100 bill! The trick was popularized by magician Stuart Edge who put his magic to a good cause by performing this trick for homeless people and letting them keep the $100 bill. Here’s how you can do it too: place a small piece of double stick tape on the bottom corner of the $1 bill. Then, take the $1 bill and fold it in half twice horizontally and then one more time vertically. Do the same with the $100 bill. The part with the sticky tape should be on the surface of the $1 bill after you’ve finished folding it. Now, take the folded $100 and place it on top of the $1 bill and let them stick together. Unfold the $1 and show it to your audience while keeping the corner with the folded $100 attached to it hidden with your fingers. Then fold the $1 bill one more time the same way you did before, flip it, and unfold the $100. 8. Pulling a rabbit out of a hat Pulling a rabbit out of a hat is one of the oldest tricks associated with magic and magicians. Some sources claim that the first magician to pull a rabbit out of a hat was a Frenchman Louis Comte in 1814, while others say it was Scottish magician John Henry Anderson who first performed the trick in mid 19th century. The trick is super easy to perform since you don’t need any elaborate props other than a black hat with a secret opening and a white rabbit. The trick is done by placing the hat on a table which also has a hidden opening through which the rabbit kept in a compartment under the table can be pulled. Quickly take the rabbit, flip the hat over, and wow your audience by pulling the rabbit out of the hat. Simple, right? 7. Removing your head The head drop illusion is an old magic trick that was recently revived by many YouTubers who use it to pull pranks on unsuspecting people. The trick usually involves the magician who pretends to sneeze before his head suddenly drops off his neck and down to the middle of his body. Here’s what you need to do if you want to try out this trick: get a plain black shirt and cut a V shape all the way down to the middle of the chest area. You’ll also need a loose jacket, another uncut black shirt, and a metal coat hanger. Put the uncut black shirt on first, followed by the cut shirt, and the jacket. Then take the coat hanger and place it between the cut and uncut shirt. Now it’s time to perform your magic trick! After pretending to sneeze, reach back with your left hand and grab the collar of your jacket and the coat hanger and pull them both up while pushing your head down through the V shape in the cut shirt. Try it out and let us know in the comments below if it worked! 6. Catching a bullet The bullet catch is a famous stage magic trick where a magician appears to catch a bullet fired directly at him in his mouth. Usually an assistant who is skilled with firearms will load the gun and show it to the audience to prove that it’s just a regular gun. The assistant then fires the gun through a target to show that the gun is working properly, before aiming it directly at the magician’s mouth and pulling the trigger. The magician then collapses to demonstrate the force of the bullet, before rising and spitting out the bullet onto a tray. What actually happens in most cases is that the weapon is rigged in advance: either the gun is made to fire blanks or the gun is loaded with a magnetic bullet. In the first case, all the magician has to do is keep the bullet in his mouth until it’s time to spit it out

Top 10 Mysterious Facts about the Bermuda Triangle !
What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the words the Bermuda Triangle? Insane Curiosity has picked 10 of the Top 10 Mysterious Facts about the Bermuda Triangle ! about this infamous region in the Atlantic Ocean, but before we start - make sure you subscribe to our channel and become the part of the notification squad. OK, done? Now, let the countdown begin! 10 Christopher Columbus Journal Did you know that Italian explorer Christopher Columbus was the first to write about the strange occurrences in the Bermuda Triangle? One journal entry that Columbus made during his first voyage to the New World in 1492 describes “a marvelous branch of fire” that he and his crewmen saw falling from the sky and into the sea, while another mentions a light in the sky that looked like a “small wax candle that rose and lifted up”. Some of the scientific explanations for the origin of strange lights and mysterious sky phenomena observed by Columbus include a meteor, glow emitted by bioluminescent microorganisms, or torches lit by indigenous peoples on nearby islands. Proponents of the Bermuda Triangle theory, however, claim that Columbus’ journal entries are an early proof of paranormal phenomena occurring in the triangular region bordered by Miami, Puerto Rico and the island of Bermuda. 9 The Shakespeare Connection Christopher Columbus is not the only famous historical figure who became intrigued with the Bermuda Triangle long before science could explain the strange events occurring in this region. The famed English playwright William Shakespeare found inspiration for his play “The Tempest” in the true story of 17th century merchant ship “Sea Venture” which was wrecked in the Bermuda during a violent storm. The plot of “The Tempest” takes place on a remote island where sorcerer Prospero and his daughter Miranda have been stranded for twelve years. Enchanted islands, magically created storms, marooned ships, and a host of occult themes and symbols are just some of the things that connect Shakespeare’s celebrated play and numerous stories about ships lost at sea inside the Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle. 8 1,000 Lost Lives While science can easily explain the majority of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle, the fact that at least 1,000 lives have been lost over the past 100 years in this area is still quite disturbing. One of the strangest incidents that actually occurred in the Bermuda Triangle involves American sailing ship Ellen Austin which came across an abandoned vessel while passing near the Bermuda Triangle in 1881. Ellen Austin’s captain ordered his crew to approach the derelict ship and inspect it further, but when they boarded the ship they realized there was no sign of a crew, and so the captain instructed his men to stay on the smaller ship and follow Ellen Austin back to New York. After the two ships became separated during a violent storm, Ellen Austin managed to once again catch up to the smaller ship. To the captain’s surprise, however, his crew had disappeared and the ship was aimlessly sailing on its own! No explanation has ever been offered for the fate of the missing crew. Spooky, right? 7 The Tragic Tale of Flight 19 The story of the disappearance of Flight 19 and its 14 crew members is one of the most famous ones in connection with the Bermuda Triangle. Flight 19 was a group of five United States Navy torpedo bombers that disappeared over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5, 1945. The planes were flying back to the Naval Base in Florida after practicing bombing near the Bermuda Triangle when they mysteriously disappeared. One of the last messages that the Flight’s commander Charles Taylor sent to the control tower was that the compasses on the planes weren’t working properly. Soon after, the control tower lost all contact with the planes and Flight 19 was declared lost. The exact cause of the tragic incident was never determined and the official U.S Navy report simply states "Reasons Unknown". To make things even weirder, a flying boat with 13 crew members was sent to look for the Flight 19 but it too disappeared soon after takeoff and was never heard from again. 6 The Close Encounters of the Third Kind The strange story of the Flight 19’s disappearance became so well-known that Steven Spielberg used it as inspiration for his 1977 cult science fiction movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The movie tells the story of a group of people who try to make contact with aliens responsible for the tragedy of Flight 19. Close Encounters of the Third Kind is not the first to make a connection between what happened to American bombers in 1945 and numerous reports of UFO sightings over the Bermuda Triangle. Some fringe scientists and writers have suggested that extraterrestrial beings use the area known as the Bermuda Triangle for alien abductions. These theorists cite not only ed

10 Most Dangerous Love Affairs That Changed History
9. John F. Kennedy and Judith Exner President John F. Kennedy‘s many extramarital affairs have been well-documented in the decades since his assassination – but it was his relationship with Judith Exner that was arguably the most scandalous one. Exner, the daughter of an architect, grew up in Pacific Palisades, California. As a teenager, she was briefly married to actor William Campbell and later had a tumultuous affair with Frank Sinatra. It was at Sinatra’s 1960 concert in Las Vegas that she first met Kennedy. The attraction was instant and for the next month the pair spoke on the phone almost every day. All the while, Exner continued spending time with Sinatra and his mobster friends, Joe Fischetti and Sam Giancana. She was soon positioned as a mafia moll and given her first assignment during a dinner at Kennedy’s Georgetown home while his pregnant wife Jackie Kennedy was away on vacation. Kennedy was concerned about securing votes in the West Virginia primary and a decision was made to have Exner reach out to Giancana for help. Exner later said she arranged around 10 meetings between Kennedy and the mobster, one of which even took place inside the White House. She also transported secret envelopes between the two men, which allegedly contained documents about the CIA’s collaboration with the Mafia to assassinate Cuban Premier Fidel Castro. As Kennedy’s focus on the presidency intensified, Exner’s relationship with him began to crumble. She soon realized that she was being followed by FBI and the affair ended in 1962. Kennedy was killed the next year. After the shock of the JFK assassination, Exner isolated herself from almost everyone but people she knew from her old life. She died in 1999 in Duarte, California. Even though Judith Exner’s 1976 memoir My Story revealed many shocking facts about her relationship with Kennedy and links with mafia, the exact role she played in JFK’s life during his final years remains shrouded in a veil of mystery. 8. Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor For the past 50 years, 1963 epic Cleopatra has remained the gold standard of Hollywood excess. It took two directors, two regime changes at the studio, two-and-a-half years, and a budget of $44 million to this cult classic. But there’s one more thing that Cleopatra is known for and that’s the infamous real life relationship between its two leading stars - Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Nowadays, in an age when the love lives of the rich and famous are part of the daily news, we aren’t so easily shocked. But the early ’60s were a different time and the gossip that came from the set of Cleopatra sent shockwaves across the world. When filming on Cleopatra began, Taylor was 29 and already on husband number four, Eddie Fisher. Fisher had left his wife, Debbie Reynolds, for the seductive silver screen queen and Taylor had gained a reputation as a “homewrecker.” 36-year-old Burton, on the other hand, was married to Sybil Burton at the time but was known in Hollywood circle as a real ladies’ man. The chemistry between the two stars was palpable from the start and their burgeoning love affair made headlines around the world. Paparazzi shots of the couple canoodling on holiday were splashed everywhere and soon both of their marriages would be over. As soon as the filming of Cleopatra wrapped, Taylor made Burton husband number five. Cleopatra was over, but the wild Taylor and Burton’s love story was just beginning. The couple married in 1964, divorced in 1974, remarried in 1975, and divorced once and for all in 1976. Only in Hollywood!

Prince Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson King Edward VIII’s decision to abdicate the British throne in 1936 and marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson is one of the biggest royal family scandals of all time. Wallis first met the prince in 1931 through her friend Thelma Furness, who happened to be one of Edward's girlfriends at the time. The free-spirited Prince was a fan of all things modern and American and became positively infatuated with Wallis as soon as he met her. By May 1934, Wallis was Prince Edward's official girlfriend. He took her skiing in Austria and reportedly bought her 60,000 pounds-worth of jewels for New Year's. By all accounts, Wallis had Prince Edward wrapped around her little finger and the royal seemed to be enjoying every bit of it. After the of his father King George V in 1936, Prince Edward became King Edward VIII. He wasn’t married at the time, but was already planning to make Wallis Simpson his wife. However, the entire government and the Church of England - which forbade divorce and remarrying if one's former spouse was still alive - stood in his way. With in power in Germany and Britain on the

Plane crashes are an extremely dangerous event, a. Here are 10 tips on how to survive a plane crash! Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ 10 Dress Comfortably This may sound silly but it can really help when in a crash situation. Wear clothes that are comfortable and easily worn when getting onto a flight. This will help you to survive the crash, as you won’t get any silly parts of your clothing caught on anything when trying to exit the plane. It’s also important to cover your body as much as possible. This is because crashes are unpredictable and you might end up landing somewhere where you need to stay warm easily, warm clothes will help you to regulate your body temperature if you are in a remote place without heat. Shoes are important too, women should try not to wear high heels or sandals and the same goes for men, when the plane crashes, these types of shoes will only exacerbate your escape and make it more difficult. 9 Wear your belt The belt on a plane is very important! If there ever is any unpredicted impact or general turbulence on a flight, the plane seatbelts are designed to lock into place and not to budge at all. So, it goes without saying that strapping yours on can help you to remain seated and secure when crashing. In fact, every centimetre of slack you give your seatbelt will result in a nastier case of whiplash if you do crash land. So it is essential that you do the belt up as tight as possible, it may be a bit uncomfortable, but as long as its on tight you can tell yourself that you’ll be safe in the event of a crash. Also, keep your seatbelt on at all times, unless you go to the toilet you must keep it on, even if you go asleep. This will prevent you from doing it up in a rushed manner if you wake up to the news of an unscheduled landing. 8 Listen to the safety speech and read the information card provided Many people will just turn a blind eye to the air hosts and hostesses as they make their scheduled announcement. It happens every flight you get on and it can seem tedious and boring, however the information they supply to you has the potential to save your life. In this speech they tell you what to do to prepare yourself for a crash, where you can get your oxygen mask and floatation devices from, and how and where to exit the vehicle from. If you ignore this information, you might find that you’re too panicked to think straight in the event of a crash. This means you are not prepared for what is about to happen and your put yourself at more risk. Always be attentive, and read the information card on the back of the seat in front of you, as this also provides essential information. 7 Count the number of seats between you and the exit if you are bored on the plane, a great way to increase your chances of survival in the event of a crash is to count how many seats and rows of seats there are between you and the emergency exit. There should be a sign indicating to you whereabouts the emergency exit is. Then all you have to do is count how many rows of seats there are between you and the exit. If the plane that you’re on crashes, it could be smoky or loud and you may not have your wits about you, which means you might struggle to find the exit which can definitely lessen your chances of survival! 6 Assess how you will crash and prepare your space accordingly If you hear the announcement confirming that you are going to crash, make sure to pay close attention to the information they supply you with. It is extremely important that you are aware of where and when you are going to crash so you can adjust yourself and the space around you to suit the situation best. For example, if you are to crash land in water, you need to get your floatation vest on at some point, so you need to factor that into the time you have. Similarly, if you are landing in cold weather, you might need to keep warm so have a blanket or a jumper handy. Also assess your destination and what is outside your window. If you are flying to some other part of the country you came from, you can be pretty sure you are not going to land in water, so you do not have to take that precaution. The time before the crash is also the perfect time for you to find the exit that is closest to you. Make sure to prepare your space, put your tray table back up into its slot and make sure your seat is in an upright position. 5...

Born in Cannes, France, Victoria used to be an attractive, fresh-faced girl who unfortunately never felt comfortable in her own skin and dreamed of becoming a living human doll. As soon as Victoria started earning money as a model, she decided to have her first surgery: permanent lip implants.

Enrique Iglesias has been around since the mid-90’s and has always had a massive sway in his native country as well as in places all over the world. He is widely regarded as the ‘King of Latin Pop’ and it’s not hard to see why. Western viewers will probably remember how he burst onto the mainstream market with super-hit ‘Hero’. Well it turns out he wasn’t done! The video features Enrique and other performers dancing and singing in crowds of people, the classic shots of Enrique singing lovingly to a young woman, and of course a lot of Latin American dancing! The video was filmed in the Dominican Republic and, as one can see from the nearly 2.5 billion views its stacked up, it definitely hit a chord with his fans! It surpassed his extremely popular 2010 hit ‘I Like It’ with ease. And whats even more amazing, is it is the most watched Spanish-language music video ever made! 9 Shake it off – Taylor Swift Yes, Swifty makes the list with her video to hit ‘Shake It Off’. Taylor’s musical style has definitely diverged from her original music quite a bit. Many will remember her slow and simplistic hit ‘Love Story’ that was the first song to get her attention from the mainstream. That video now sits at around 500 million views. The last few years have seen a definite change in image from Taylor as she tries to keep up with the super-modern culture. The video shows her trying her hand at ballet dancing, street dancing and interpretive dance too! Her quirky nature really hit the nail on the head with viewers, as the video has just over 2.5 billion views! She continues to pull in millions of views on newer songs where she is, again experimenting with her sound and style, yet this one will seemingly always be a fan favourite! 8 Sugar – Maroon 5 Maroon 5 first came together in 1994 under the name Kara’s Flowers. After a small time release, they parted ways and went to college. In 2001 the band returned and changed its image, and its name to Maroon 5. Their first release proved very successful but unfortunately failed to get the top spot on the US billboard 200. One of their song that allowed them to breakthrough to the mainstream was Moves Like Jagger, which featured Christina Aguilera and was an ode to the dance stylings of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. It would be the bands single ‘Sugar’ that would get them into this list. The song itself is a funk-pop number, and the video sees Adam Levine and his band make their way across LA crashing weddings and playing the song. This premise was an instant hit online, and that combined with the song being super catchy has given Maroon 5 a video with just over 2,518,000,000 views! 7. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for Disaster Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you… our only video on this list that isn’t a music video! How crazy is that?! You know what is more crazy? What this video actually consists of! Masha and the Bear is an extremely popular kids show in Russia, that’s popularity has spread to many different countries, having been translated into 25 languages. It is loosely based on a childrens folk story of the same name and is a fun and entertaining show for young children. The series follows the adventures of a retired circus bear who settles into the woods and prepares for a quiet new life surrounded by peace and tranquility until he is introduced to an adventurous little girl named Masha who can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble. The video has 2.8 billion views on youtube. It is the only video in this list that is not a music video! Well, Masha and her Bear friend must be doing something right! 6. Sorry – Justin Bieber Yes, Justin had to be up there somewhere didn’t he! Everybody knows Justin Bieber as the young pop sensation who has entertained young fans for around a decade now. Starting out with huge hits like ‘One Time’, and ‘Baby’, we then saw Justin start to produce more mature and adult songs such as ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘Confident’. The particular song in question is from Justin’s latest album ‘Purpose’ which was a huge success, drawing in his die hard fans, as well as a lot of music critics in the process. The video is to the song ‘Sorry’ and, ironically enough, doesn’t actually feature

INTRO With the advancement and answers from science it’s no wonder that when an unsolved mystery arises it garners mass attention from the public. I’m Lorenzo and here are 8 of the most mysterious things to ever happen in the world. 08 - Flight 19 In 1945, 5 military aircraft left Ft. Lauderdale to run routine combat scenario drills. What transpired next can only be classified as speculative and laid the groundwork for the myth and mystery of what is now called the Bermuda Triangle. As the pilots approached the now famous Triangle, their reports back to base claimed on massive instrument failure without the expected reaction from the plane itself. In other words, the instruments the pilots use to assess the health of the aircraft went haywire while the plane itself seemed unaffected. This was the last time contact was made with any of the pilots. A rescue flight was sent in response to the same fate. Later a boat team was dispatched to the area but to no avail. No signs of combat, the pilots, or the planes themselves were ever recovered, even after the war when salvage efforts were at their maximum. They seemed to have just disappeared entirely, giving birth to the mystery that is the Bermuda Triangle. 07 - Jack the Ripper In 1888 a series of gruesome murders took place in London’s East end. 126 years later, and even with modern companies dedicated to solving the mystery, we are still unable to identify the murderer. Today, we simply refer to the serial killer as Jack the Ripper. Many modern investigators claim that with the advent of the entertainment surrounding the murders in the forms of horror movies, mystery novels, and thrillers has only fully solidified the mystery, though the details may be lost in translation. The murders may not have been conducted by one man as the storytelling version likes to feed us. One investigator even claimed “writers and storyteller are sending modern investigators on a wild good chase. They are searching for answers to a question that lies buried in the past. It wasn’t until the story became a legend that modern investigators took and interest into discovering, once and for all, who Jack the Ripper is. 06 - Kenneth’s Arnold’s Flying Saucer When I say UFO, a large, round flying disk may come to mind. It certainly has bene presented as such in modern entertainment. But this inspiration of flying saucers can be traced back to a single source, and it isn’t an old film. That source is Kenneth’s Arnold’s UFO sighting report. Ken Arnold, a private pilot and connoisseur of flying things, witnessed 9 unusual flying objects over the Cascade mountains in Washington, 1947. He explained the aircraft to news reporters as a round, bat-wing type shape that seemed to skip across the sky as a flat rock would a body of water. Being somewhat familiar with the modern aircraft of the time, he described it as much, much faster than anything he had ever seen. He calculated it to be faster than that of any “known” aircraft with jet engine capabilities -- the pinnacle of speed at the time. The report was filed and covered in the media where a sub-editor called the craft “flying saucers.” The media exploded with coverage of these so-called “flying saucers,” and it became a worldwide phenomenon and the inspiration to the well-known equally loved alien conspiracy. The government didn’t help this craze by announcing the U.S. Army had recovered a disc like space craft from a ranch near, you might have guessed it, Roswell New Mexico. 05 - Monsters of the Deep We spend a lot of time gazing at the stars and wondering. Has it ever occurred to you that just as much mystery resides here on earth? Just look at our oceans, in which we’ve only been able to explore, and I’m being lenient here, 5 percent of it! Ancient stories, and even some recent ones, talk of huge sea-creatures that can take out an entire fleet with the flip of its tail or whip of its tentacle. Are these tales just made up or is the darkness and extreme pressure hiding beasts that we can only fathom? William Calman, once the Keeper of Zoology at the National History Museum, posed this question to listeners as he displayed museum evidence of massive creatures discovered just within the past few years, “Are we so rash as to suppose that we know all of the inhabitants of the sea?” With only 5 percent explored, I think its safe to say that who know what creatures lie dormant in the deepest, darkest parts of our sea. Until we can handle the extreme pressure of the deep ocean, we won’t know. 04 - The Devil’s Footprints On February 9th, 1855, after a fresh fallen snow, citizens across southern Devon awoke to find a peculiar site. For a hundred miles a single, seemingly purposeful line of hoof like marks through the ..

12 People BORN with Extra Body Parts!
The human body comes in all shapes and sizes and sometimes it even comes with more than the usual number of parts! These are 12 people with extra body parts. Stay tuned until the number 1 ! Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ 12. Ashik Gavai When 17-year old Ashik Gavai checked into a Mumbai hospital with a swelling in his right jaw, he could never have imagined what the doctors were about to discover in his mouth. The teenager had been suffering from jaw pain and headaches for 18 months and had travelled from his village to Mumbai after local doctors failed to identify the cause of his problem. At the Mumbai hospital, Ashik was taken into surgery and the doctors ended up extracting 232 teeth from his mouth! It turned out that Ashik had a severe case of odontoma – a benign tumor composed of normal dental tissue that has grown in an irregular way and resulted in an excessive number of tooth-like structures. According to the team of doctors who performed Ashik’s surgery, the previous record for the maximum number of extra teeth that have been extracted from the tumor was 37. 11. Hong Hong On 2016, a baby boy named Hong Hong was born in the Chinese province of Hunan with a total of 31 fingers and toes. Hong Hong was subsequently diagnosed with an extreme case of polydactyly. He has 15 fingers and 16 toes with two palms on each hand and no thumbs. Polydactyly is a congenital physical anomaly in humans which results in extra fingers or toes. The extra digits are usually removed surgically, but in Hong Hong's case, the doctors have decided to wait until he’s strong enough to undergo the procedure. Polydactyly has an incidence of 1 in every 500 live births and is more frequent in male children. Some of the famous people who were born with this condition include Academy Award winner Halle Berry who was born with an extra toe on her left foot, American boxing champion Danny who has six toes on his right foot, and English actress and former Bond girl Gemma Arterton who has an extra finger on each hand. 10. Sarah Reinfelder In February 2009, Michigan native Sarah Reinfelder gave birth to healthy twin girls, named Kaylin Joy and Valerie Marie. This wouldn’t be surprising at all if Sarah didn’t have two wombs which made the chances of a successful pregnancy about one in 5 million. Sarah first discovered she had two wombs after she suffered a miscarriage in 2007 and was told that she would probably never be able to have children. But Sarah beat the impossible odds and has so far given birth to three children – the twin girls and a boy. Womb abnormalities such as Sarah’s are not uncommon. About 4% of all women have some sort of reproductive malformation, including having two wombs, two cervixes, or a septum dividing the vaginal canal in two.

Brigham Nordstrom According to America's National Kidney Foundation, kidneys are the most sought after organ for donations and the average waiting time for a transplant is between two and six years. One man who will probably never have to worry about any of this is Brigham Nordstrom, a law student of from New Zealand who was born with three extra kidneys in addition to the regular two. Nordstrom first discovered he had five kidneys in February 2009 when he was admitted to Waikato Hospital in Hamilton, New Zealand with a kidney infection. After the doctors took a scan of Nordstrom’s kidneys, they found one duplex kidney and one triplex kidney. Instead of having one tube joining each kidney to the bladder, Nordstrom had two tubes on the left and three on the right. All of Nordstrom’s five kidneys were fully functional and he chose to keep them all. What would you do in his place? Would you give your extra kidneys to people in need of a transplant or would you keep them all just in case you ever need a fresh pair? 8. George Lippert George Lippert was born in 1842 in Bavaria, Germany with two functioning hearts and three functioning legs. His right leg split off into two, one of which was normal-sized, club-footed, and had six toes, while the other one was malformed and had three toes. The only known images of Lippert are pitch cards based on illustration, so it’s difficult to know how accurate the written descriptions of his malformations are. What we do know, however, is that Lippert worked for the famous 19th century American circus promoter P.T. Barnum for 24 years. Lippert died in the summer of 1906 after contracting tuberculosis at the age of 62. The autopsy revealed his two hearts and also showed that one heart died two to three weeks before his actual death. Doctors declared that if Lippert had not had tuberculosis he could have easy lived on for many years and would have been sustained by his secondary hear..

10 Things You Didn't Know About Donald Trump
What 's up guys, welcome to today’s video which answers the question, who is Donald Trump? Many of you probably know him from his luxurious hotels and resorts, his billionaire status, his incredible hair, his producing role in the reality show named The Apprentice, and as of 2016 the president of the United States of America, but here are ten things you did not know about Donald Trump. Starting with number ten Trump: The Game, Trump the Game is a monopoly style board game based on the formally mentioned business man, initially released in 1989 by the Milton Brand Company, the game sold poorly only selling 800,000 of the estimated 2,000,000 copies. After the success of a reality television show trump produced called the apprentice the company Parker Brothers re-released Trump the Game in 2004 using the Apprentice slogan “you’re fired”, and as of 2016 the game is considered a collector’s item. A sealed copy can be found online easily worth hundreds of dollars, not bad for an unsuccessful board game. Number nine His Star on the Hollywood walk of fame, In 2003 Trump became an executive producer and host of the NBC reality show The Apprentice, the show would consists of competitors battling amongst themselves for a high ranking position in one of Donald Trump’s commercial businesses. The show proved very popular among a large audience and in 2007 Donald Trump received his own Star on the Hollywood walk of fame for his contributions to the show. The Star was vandalised on October 26, 2016 by James Otis with a sledgehammer and pickaxe one week before Donald Trump’s election into office. James Otis was later arrested and sent to trial for his involvement on destroying the star. The star has since been repaired and added a few extra precautions to make sure this form of vandalism doesn’t happen again. Recently however people did start marking on it with various types of markers, causing heated debates on twitter. I think we all know Donald Trump is an expert in those, having been with an argument with many other celebrities in his time. Number eight Trump Vodka, in 2005 the Drink Americas beverage Distribution Company signed with Donald Trump to promote a new brand of vodka which was eventually named Trump Vodka. The Trump Vodka brand was discontinued in 2011 due to sales not reaching the required sale criteria. The Vodka did in fact reach an amazing level of success in Israel despite its failure in the United States, so trump made a deal with the new distribution company so they could continue selling the product in Israel. The reason it is popular in the country is because of its primary ingredient being potatoes as opposed to grains which help people with the dietary restrictions over the kosher holidays. Great business strategy, if only you figured it out before the failure in the United States. You know what they say, when one door closes another one opens. The doors being countries willing to buy a potato based vodka in this instance. Number seven went to military school, at the age of 13 Donald Trump was sent to military school by his parents for his frequent disobedient qualities. He was then enrolled in the New York Military Academy; there he learned discipline and leadership qualities which helped him later in life. Trump rose to captain, tasked with presiding over the schools most prestigious company of cadets. He would graduate in 1964 with him being voted ladies’ man by his peers for his class yearbook. Trump went on to say that the school taught him more military training than the army ever could. I guess you just have to see it to believe it. Number six active member of the “birther” movement, the birther movement was a program started by who many speculate is Donald Trump himself. The movement focused on whether or not former President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Trump even sent investigators to Obama’s native state of Hawaii to back up his accusations. When Obama publicly released his birth certificate in 2014, Trump referred to at his “so-called birth certificate, or whatever it was. “Trump would continue to investigate for a little while longer before officially giving up his search. This fact isn’t that surprising based on the former mutual hatred between Obama and Trump. This hatred spread to Obama dissing trump during the campaign saying he does not support Trump or his political methods and would rather see Hillary Clinton in office. After winning the election trump said that there are no hard feelings and even offered Obama free tickets to play golf at any of his golf courses granted he ended his term early. The mutual hatred would eventually fade away from mainstream media, after trump took his place as President of the United

Ghosts of dead relatives, sea monsters, and UFOs...believe it or not all of these have been caught on camera! Here are top 10 mysterious photos that cannot be explained! but before...

The Back Seat Ghost On March 22, 1959, Mrs. Mabel Chinnery from the town of Ipswitch in South-East England drove to the local graveyard with her husband to take a picture of the place where her late mother Ellen Hammell had been buried a week before. After Mrs. Chinnery took the photo of her mother’s grave, she returned to the car and decided to use her last remaining shot to take a picture of her husband. When the pictures were developed, however, Mrs. Chinnery was shocked to see a figure that resembled her late mother sitting in the back seat of the car. According to Mrs. Chinnery, this is where her mother always used to sit when they went for drives. Over the following years, Mrs. Chinnery consulted numerous photo experts who testified that the photograph was genuine and told her that the female figure in the back seat couldn't be the result of the double exposure effect because if it were, the car door wouldn't have blocked off part of her face. So what do you think: could the apparition in the back seat really be the ghost of Mrs. Chinnery’s mother?ck sea 9. 1940s Time Traveller This seemingly perfectly normal photograph was shown in the spring of 2010 at the Virtual Museum of Canada as part of an online exhibition about the history of British Colombia. It didn’t take long however, for visitors to notice something downright bizarre about this photo which shows a group of people attending the reopening of the South Forks Bridge in the mining community of Gold Bridge in 1941. What caught the spectators’ attention was the figure of a young man standing in the middle of the group and looking unquestionably out of place. The man is dressed in a logo T-shirt and is wearing a pair of modern sunglasses and a portable camera around his neck. The photo immediately became a viral Internet phenomenon and was shared by blogs and news sites around the world. While some of them claimed the image was a definite proof of time travel, others dismissed it as yet another photoshopped hoax. Either way, no one has so far been able to offer any definite explanation for the 1940s time traveler. 8. Hook Island Sea Monster On December 12th 1964, photographer Robert Le Serrec took this mysterious photo while vacationing on the Hook Island, just off the coast of the Australian state of Queensland. The photograph features an unidentified creature that resembles a giant tadpole, estimated to be around 80 ft long. The animal appears to have a pair of white eyes located on the top of its head and smooth black skin covered in brown transverse stripes. According to Le Serrec’s account, the creature didn’t move at first and he suspected it might be dead. However, just as he was getting ready to take a few more snaps of the sea monster, the creature opened its mouth and made movements toward him. Le Serrec quickly returned to his boat and by the time he came back to the same spot, the creature had moved off. Several marine biologists later suggested that the creature from Le Serrec’s photo might be a giant swamp eel. However, swamp eels are generally much smaller and eel-shaped, rather than tadpole-shaped. Crypto-zoologists on the other hand claimed Le Serrec had snapped a photo of the legendary sea serpent. Hmm...we’re not sure what to make of all this. Do you have any theories about the creature in the photo? Let us know in the comment section below! Have you subscribed to our channel yet? If not, hurry up and do it right now before we move on with our list! 7. Hessdalen lights This mysterious photo shows the Hessdalen lights - a phenomenon of unknown origin observed in the Hessdalen valley in rural central Norway. These strange lights have been reported in the region since at least the 1930s. The lights seem to float above the valley and are usually bright white, yellow, or red. Sometimes the lights move at a high speed and at other times they seem to sway slowly back and forth or hover in midair. As of 2010, the number of observations has decreased, though there are still around 10 to 20 sightings reported each year. Since 1983, there has been ongoing scientific research into the origin of the Hessdalen lights, though no convincing explanation has been given. Currently, there are several working hypotheses about this phenomenon. One possible explanation attributes the appearance of lights to combustions caused by the rare-earth metal scandium which naturally occurs in the Hessdalen valley. Another recent hypothesis suggests that the lights are formed by clusters of charged atoms..

15 HEALTHY FOODS That Help You Live Longer.To 100 !
Do you want to live forever? Well, you can’t...but you CAN prolong your life simply by paying attention to what you eat. I’m Jack and these are 15 foods that will help you live l to 100 with an healthy lifestyle? Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ Watch our”Vegans vs. Meat Eaters: What’s The PERFECT DIET For A Longer Life?” https://youtu.be/UmLjuQfYvnE 15 Olive Oil A staple of the life-prolonging Mediterranean diet, olive oil is like a precious gem among healthy foods. Health and nutritional benefits of olive oils have been known for centuries: people living as far back as 6000 BC produced olive oil and used it as a part of their daily diet. Olive oil is a 75% monounsaturated fatty acid, which makes it one of the good fats. Monounsaturated fats reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, lower cholesterol levels, help prevent breast cancer, alleviate arthritic pain, and promote weight loss. Olive oil is also a rich source of Vitamins E, which is important for keeping your skin and hair looking and feeling younger. 14. Kale Remember when your mom used to tell you all the time to eat your greens? Well, mother knows best! Leafy vegetables like kale are considered to be a superfood and can help you feel better and live longer. Kale is one of best sources of Vitamin K, containing several times the daily value. Daily intake of Vitamin K improves bone density, reduces inflammation, reduces artery calcifications, and helps fight several forms o cancer including liver, prostate, colon, stomach, nasal, and oral cancers. Oh, and 100 g of kale only has 49 calories, so next time you’re in a grocery store, ditch the potato chips and fill up your cart with kale! 13. Walnuts It might be a coincidence that a walnut looks exactly like a human brain with two symmetrical halves and wrinkled surface, but it’s no coincidence that people who regularly consume these delicious nuts show better working memory in old age. Walnuts are not only full of essential minerals and vitamins, but are also one of the best sources of polyunsaturated fats. These fats are crucial for keeping the brain’s grey matter healthy by strengthening neural circuits and slowing the process of neural degenerations. In fact, a large-scale 2013 Harvard study showed that eating foods rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids reduces the risk of early death by as much 20%! 12 Garlic You might want to skip on garlic before your romantic date, but there’s no excuse for never eating this super-healthy vegetable. Native to Central Asia, this flavorful and resilient plant has been used as both food and medicine for centuries. Besides being a good source of vitamin C and various dietary minerals, such as manganese, calcium, iron, and zinc, garlic is perhaps best known for the antibiotic and antimicrobial properties of its main ingredient: allicin. Allicin is a sulfur-based organic compound that gives garlic its pungent odor. Foods high in allicin reduce cholesterol levels and high blood pressure, aid in muscle regeneration, and help fight several kinds of drug-resistant bacterial infections. 11 Cinnamon Who said healthy foods have to taste bad? Cinnamon is one of the most delicious spices out there and making it a part of your daily diet is a great way to boost your health. Cinnamon is one of nature’s most powerful polyphenol antioxidants, a type of antioxidant that combats cancer-causing oxidative stress, promotes tissue damage repair, helps control blood sugar levels, and has strong anti-aging effects on skin. For maximum benefits, use this aromatic powder every day by sprinkling it on your cereal, stirring it in your morning coffee, or simply mixing it with honey and taking a spoonful every morning before breakfast. 10 Turmeric Turmeric might not be as widely used as cinnamon in the Western world, but its health benefits are just as amazing. This peculiar-tasting, bright yellow spice has proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. Practitioners of the ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine have used turmeric for centuries to promote digestion, improve functioning of the liver, and boost the immune system. Curcumin, turmeric’s main ingredient, reduces chronic inflammation, neutralizes free radicals, and increase levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor – an important protein that improves cognitive processes, prevents brain cell death, and promotes the growth of new neurons. 9 Seaweed Seaweed might not look too appealing on the plate, but once you hear about its health properties, you’ll never want to eat anything else! Seaweed is a staple food in parts of Japan, particularly on the Okinawa Island,...

15 Amazing Facts About The HUMAN BODY
From giving birth in the coffin to glowing in the dark, here are 15 amazing facts about the human body! 15. women can ‘give birth’ Yes, you heard it right: babies can be born to mothers who have passed away. Known as coffin birth, this phenomenon is a completely natural occurrence. When a pregnant mother dies, sometimes her body will force the fetus out of the post-mortem, "birthing" a stillborn child. Typically during the decomposition of a human body, naturally occurring bacteria in the organs of the stomach produce gases as by-products of metabolism, which causes the body to swell. In some cases, the confined pressure of the gases can squeeze a woman’s and if a fetus is contained within the , it could be expelled from the mother's body in a process that mimics childbirth. Cases of coffin birth have been recorded by medical authorities since the 16th century. The earliest presented case occurred in 1551 when a pregnant woman was tried and hanged by the courts of the Spanish Inquisition. Four hours after her , while the body was still hanging, two infants were seen falling free of the body. 14. Humans are bioluminescent Have you ever been told that you were glowing? Well, it turns out whoever told you that wasn’t lying! According to a 2009 study conducted by Japanese researchers, human bioluminescence in visible light exists but it’s simply too faint for our weak eyes to notice. The intensity of the light emitted by the body is 1,000 times lower than the sensitivity of our eyes. The team made this surprising discovery using super-sensitive cameras to monitor five healthy male volunteers for 20 minutes every 3 hours inside a light-tight room for three days straight. They found that participants literally 'glowed' throughout the day, with the brightest spots appearing around the forehead, neck, cheeks in the late afternoon. And this wasn’t just infrared radiation caused by heat – the glow actually came from photons or light particles. So why do we glow in the dark? Human bioluminescence is an interesting side-effect of our metabolisms. It’s the result of highly reactive free radicals produced through cell respiration interacting with free-floating lipids and proteins. These excited molecules can then interact with photons, and voila - you’re actually glowing. The researchers also found that the glow was linked to the body’s biological clock since in the late afternoon when we’re burning the most energy, we glow the brightest. 13. The brain eats itself when you diet Bad news dieters: going hungry actually makes your brain eat itself! Scientists have known for a while that when a body becomes starved for nourishment, cells start eating bits and pieces of themselves. It’s a process known as “autophagy” and it’s actually a normal part of the cell life cycle - it’s how other cells get energy during the tough times. But up until recently it was thought that the brain was largely resistant to autophagy under these conditions. However, a group of researchers from Albert Einstein College of Medicine discovered that at least one part of the brain can self-cannibalize. It’s the hypothalamus, the portion of the brain that regulates a variety of functions, including sleep, body temperature, thirst and hunger. The researchers, working with mice, found that neurons in the hypothalamus started eating their own organelles and proteins when the animals were deprived of food. That autophagy then set off a series of steps, telling the brain that more food was needed. The researchers speculate that this finding may provide clues about why a high- diet may make you more hungry - all those ty acids in the bloodstream may set off that same series of steps as the autophagy of neurons, making a person more hungry and causing you to eat even more.

Well, then you should leave your day job and become an astronaut! According to NASA scientists, astronauts in space can grow up to 3 percent taller during the time spent living in microgravity. That means that a 6-foot or 1.8 meters tall person could gain as many as 2 inches or 5 centimeters while in orbit. While scientists have known for some time that astronauts experience a slight height boost during a months-long stay on the International Space Station, NASA is only now starting to use ultrasound technology to see exactly what

No matter how much we are told about it’s dodgy ingredients, we can’t help but go and visit our favourite establishment, be it McDonalds, KFC, wendy's,taco bell and their delicious fries, burgers, pizza, or one of the MANY others! But be warned, these facts will shock you! Will you go again in a fast food after this revelations? Let us know in a comment below 20.) The Shape of your Chicken McNuggets Did you know that there are 4 specific shapes for Chicken McNuggets? It’s true. There’s ‘The Bell’, ‘The Boot’, ‘The Bow’ and the ‘The Ball’! Have a look next time you order them and see if you can spot each! According to McDonalds, they use these specific shapes in order to ensure food safety regulations are met, and all of the nuggets are cooked through successfully. But they also picked the shapes to entertain kids, and they make for easy dipping! 19.) Is Taco Bell Mexican food? With over 6000 locations in 22 different countries, Taco Bell is becoming really popular. But one of the countries in which they can’t seem to find their footing is… Mexico! They have tried countless times to launch locations there and they have been met with opposition every time. One location received complaints that the names of items on the menu were actually misleading and certain food titles didn’t match up with what the actual food was. Every time a Taco Bell has been set up in Mexico it’s received a tirade of complaints, and is actually referred to as ‘American Food’! 18.) McDonalds rename the hamburger! During World War 2, McDonalds recognized the similarities between their ‘Hamburgers’ and the name of the German location of Hamburg, and so they sought to distance themselves from the germans by calling their burgers ‘Liberty Steaks’! The same happened in Britain where they were renamed Salisbury Steaks, after the physician who prescribed beef to soldiers suffering from diarrhea! 17.) Did Colonel Sanders hate KFC? Colonel Sanders sold the chicken franchise in 1964, and after this gradually came to hate the establishment! One time in 1970 he unleashed a tirade on his former establishment. Saying the gravy wasn’t even fit for his dogs, and that his crispy recipe had basically been turned to a fried dough ball on a stick! He actually attempted to KFC for changes to his recipe in the 70’s but after much deliberation the suit was thrown out! 16.) America may not be number 1 for fast food consumption! It may be hard to believe, but maybe the stereotype of the fast food munching American isn’t necessarily accurate! In 2004 a global survey revealed that a massive 61% of people in Hong Kong had been to a fast food restaurant in the past week! The average Hong Kong resident visits a fast food establishment 7 times a month, spending nearly $170 a month! Also a whopping 97% of Hong Kong residents surveyed had been to a fast food restaurant. 15.) Fast Food and Entertainment! The relationship between certain fast food establishments and the entertainment industry is very obvious! Both seek to help the other out, whether it be obvious McDonalds product placement in big, blockbuster movies, or McDonalds commissioning an upcoming kids movie as it’s new happy meal toy. It is thought that both parties earn greatly off of this mutual partnership. So be aware when you see a those golden McDonalds arches in your favourite movie! 14.) The calories! It’s no secret that fast food contains a lot of calories, but sometimes we forget just how bad it is for us! For instance, a Double Whopper from Burger King contains around 900 calories. Meaning you would need to jog about 5 miles to burn it off! Add the fries and soft drink to that, and an average man has ingested 70% of his calorie intake for that day! 13.) Advertising fast food A lot of fast food’s restaurants custom comes from us seeing advertisements for their food on television. In 2012 alone, 4.6 billion dollars were invested in promoting fast food restaurants and advertising products.

12 Most  RARE And  Expensive MATERIALS On Earth!
Here are 12 OF THE RAREST MATERIALS ON EARTH ! Our beautiful blue ball is home to a plethora of rare materials. Some are more commonly known, while other’s seem to have been ripped straight from the pages of sci-fi novels. I’m Lorenzo with Insane Curiosity, and here are 12 of the rarest and most expensive materials, that we know of, on earth. 12 Rhinoceros Horn Traditionally used in Chinese medicine, but because modern medicine has deemed it useless, the Rhinoceros Horn has become a status symbol of wealth and power. Made of hair and Keratin, the same materials that make up human nails, the Rhino horn is little more valuable than your toe nail clippings, but because of the Rhino’s fast approach to extinction and the unfaltering cruelty of poachers and buyers alike, poached Rhino horns are sold for around $120 per gram on the black-market. The near annihilation of a species just to feed the greed and egos of the elite. 11 Saffron )Many people are unaware that some spices are considered “precious” and can cost as much as the rarest of metals. Saffron is the pinnacle of said spices. Costing as much as $500.00 an ounce, this sweet and bitter spice is famous in traditional Italian, French, and Indian cuisine. Besides its, what some would call, intoxicating flavor, much like Truffle is described, Saffron is jam-packed with antioxidants and carotenoids. Interestingly enough, what makes this spice rare isn’t the quantity grown on the earth, but how its produced. Each flower only produces 3 to 4 threadlike stigmas - the part of the flower that becomes saffron -- and each is harvested, as it was in the ancient days, by hand. 10 Rhodium This silvery-white metal is cherished for its reflective and anti-corrosion properties as well as being a chemically inert transition metal. Almost 85% of the Rhodium produced is used as a catalyst in an automobile’s three-way catalytic converter. The rest is divvied between such products as lights, mirrors, and jewelry. The price for Rhodium is always in fluctuation but is currently nestling in at around $1,570 per troy ounce. That’s around $300 more than the price of gold even in its current inflated state. # 9 Osmium ) Wearing the crown for the Densest Naturally Occurring Element, Osmium is a blue-white and hard metal found within the Platinum group. Another -- heavier -- crown it bears is that of the “Least Abundant ‘Stable’ Element” within the earth’s crust. It has an even number on the periodic table which states, according to the OddoHarkins rule, its more abundant in space than it is on earth. It is mainly produced, however, from the wastes of nickel refining. Osmium is never used in its pure state due to its oxide’s extreme volatility and toxicity, and can be found in only a few products: Needles, instrument pivots, fountain pen tips, and electrical contacts. Though no where near the worth of some other elements on the list, Osmium falls in around $400 per try ounce -- far from cheap. 8 Plutonium I’m sure you’ve heard its name dropped in a ridiculous amount of movies in which some cliche terrorist group has stolen a cache of it with the intent to build a bomb that the hero must miraculously diffuse in the last three seconds of its timer. Partly true in that it is used in the creation of nuclear bombs, Plutonium has a plethora of other, more beneficial, uses such as an energy source for spacecraft and even as a power source for pace makers -- one that reduces the risk repeated, surgical intrusion. Costing around $4,000 per gram, I can assure you, Plutonium, besides its heavy radioactivity and heavy metal toxicity, is not as easy to come by as the movies make it seem. 3. 7 Tritium Also known as Hydrogen-3, Tritium, a gas, is a radio luminescent, radioactive isotope.

15 Ways And Tips  To Live  To 100 !
If you wanna live longer , and know secrets , how to be healthy and live an healhty life , this is the video for you ! we discuss about food , tips and tricks, how to stop aging, and other amazing facts , from Insane Curiosity ... you’re about to learn 15 surprising ways to live to 100! let s go with the list. 15 Stop Worrying I know, I know...easier said than done! But it’s really worth a try, and here’s why: worrying is closely linked to stress, and stress is known to be one of the main culprits of early death. People who worry too much have higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which makes them prone to cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, depression, and cancer. Chronic worrying also tends to negatively impact other aspects of your life, including healthy eating habits, sleep pattern, and relationship with others, all of which are important for a long and happy life. So, take a leaf out of the Monty Python’s book, and “always look on the bright side of life!” 14 Exercise Your Brain You hear all the time how important it is to exercise to stay fit and healthy, but living to be a 100 is not only a matter of physical fitness but mental as well. If you want to live a long life, you need to treat your brain just like any other muscle in your body. This means challenging it with new tasks every day and staying curious and open-minded. Believe it or not, our mental capacities start to deteriorate as early as in our late 20s. Thankfully, our brains have a remarkable ability to form new connections between neurons, and the way to do this is to exercise your brain every day. There are different things that you can do to keep your brain healthy for many, many years: from playing board games and learning new languages to solving crosswords puzzles and playing chess. 13 Be Sociable According to a recent study from the University of Utah, people who have a rich social life have a 50% lower risk of dying prematurely than those who live a solitary existence. Researchers found that maintaining close relationships with your friends and family throughout your life is just as beneficial as quitting smoking! This is explained by lower stress levels in people who receive regular emotional support from others. Humans are social animals and we have an inherent need to form bonds with others, and Facebook friends don’t count! So, pick up the phone and call your mom, make plans to see your friends this weekend, or simply start saying hello to your neighbors. Trust me, you’ll feel better and live longer! 12 Laugh More How many times have you heard that saying “Laughter is the best medicine”? You might think it’s a cliché, but as it turns out it’s a scientific fact that people who laugh frequently live longer and healthier lives. The more you laugh, the more endorphin is released in the brain. Endorphin is a natural pain-reliever that reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety, and helps us sleep better. Laughter also increases the number of antibody-producing cells that keep your immune system strong and make you more resistant to pathogens. So, what are you waiting for? Go make some popcorn and curl up on the couch for a ‘Friends’ marathon! 11 Help Others Want to live a long life? Stop thinking about yourself for a second and go do something nice for somebody else. Study after study has shown that people who regularly engage in volunteer work are healthier and live longer than those who are not as selfless. Helping others is one of the most effective ways of warding off feelings of emptiness and depression. It also makes you more sociable, which reduces the risk of dementia, stroke, high blood pressure, and heart attack. Whether it’s helping your elderly neighbor climb the stairs, donating to charity, or volunteering at a dog shelter, acts of goodwill are strongly correlated with happiness and longevity. 10 Practice Mindfulness When you hear the word ‘mindfulness’ you probably immediately picture a Buddhist monk sitting in a lotus position somewhere high up on the mountain. While it’s true that the concept of mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism, in reality it can be as simple as paying attention to what you’re doing and feeling at this very moment, instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. Studies on mindfulness show that making conscious effort to be present at every moment improves the functioning of brain areas associated with memory. Mindfulness also reduces the risk of inflammatory diseases and alleviates symptoms of various mood disorders. So, if you want to live longer, set aside a few minutes every day to practice being fully present with your thoughts firmly fixed on the ‘here’ and ‘now’. 9 Stay Active Everybody knows that regular exercise equals longer and healthier life. There are so many health benefits of exercise that it would take us hours to list them all, but let’s just focus on the most important ones.

10 Strange Senses Animals Have and Humans Don’t
You’re watching Insane Curiosity at these are 10 strange senses that animals have and humans don’t. 10. Super smell Compared to nearly all other animal species, humans have an extremely weak sense of smell. So much so, that some animals could be said to possess a unique sense of super smell. Scent hounds can smell one- to ten-million times more acutely than humans, and bloodhounds have noses ten- to one-hundred-million times more sensitive than ours. Bears have an even stronger sense of smell than dogs. Black bears have been observed to travel up to 20 miles in a straight line to a food source, grizzlies can find an elk carcass when it's underwater, and polar bears can smell a seal through 3 feet of ice. But not all animals use their nose for smelling. Snakes have one of the most powerful mechanisms for smelling but it has nothing to do with their nostrils. Snakes use their nostrils solely for breathing, while smelling is achieved by sticking out their tongues and using the damp surface to catch scent particles and carry them to a special n the mouth called Jacobson's . In other words, snakes smell by literally “tasting” the air with their tongues and they’re doing a much better job than humans and their noses. 9. Mechanoreception While most spiders have eight eyes, few of them have good eyesight which means they have to rely on their other senses to get around. One particularly well developed sense that helps spiders catch prey and escape dangerous situations is called mechanoreception. Mechanoreception refers to the process by which a mechanical stimulus is converted into a nervous impulse. The exoskeleton of spiders is covered in small receptor called slit sensilla which respond to mechanical pressure. These tiny sensory , which resemble the strings of a cord instrument, are super sensitive to even the slightest pressure or vibration, which helps spiders catch their prey at night. Slit sensilla are so sensitive that they can respond to forces as small as 0.01 millinewtons, which is less than half the body weight of a typical cockroach. This means that spiders able to determine the size, weight, and even the type of insect that gets caught in their webs without relying on their eyesight. 8. Barometric pressure detection If you’re tired of misleading weather forecasts on the news, just get yourself an aquarium and a couple of oriental weatherfish and you’ll be able to predict an approaching storm before anyone else. Oriental weatherfish, also known as pond loach, is a species of ray-finned fish native to East Asia that has a unique ability to detect changes in barometric pressure. A drop in barometric pressure causes a pressure change in the weatherfish’s swim bladder - an internal gas-filled that helps fish control their buoyancy and maintain its depth without floating upward or sinking. Every time the barometric pressure falls, the weatherfish will become extremely agitated and start swimming frantically in the hours before a storm. Sometimes the fish will become so stressed that they will jump out of the aquarium! Luckily, these remarkable fish can live up to three days out of a tank so if you ever find you weatherfish on the floor one morning, put it back in the aquarium and the chances are the fish will soon revive and make a full recovery. Before we move on to number seven on our list, take a second to subscribe to Insane Curiosity for more amazing content. Done? OK, let’s move on then. 7. Polarization vision Unlike humans who only have a marginal sensitivity to polarized light, a number of other animal species have a heightened polarization sensitivity which allows them to tell the orientation in which light waves are oscillating. Insects such as bees, ants, and crickets have compound eyes that are composed of thousands of "simple eyes". Each of these smaller eyes has its own visual cells which are highly sensitive to polarized light. Not only does this allow insects like bees to perceive the light in dimensions unknown to humans, it also gives them the ability to use the patterns of polarized light in the sky as a compass. Bees use polarization vision as a navigation system to locate directions and communicate them to the colony, which essentially means that these hardworking creatures have a built-in GPS system! 6. Magnetoreception Magnetoreception, or the ability to detect the Earth's magnetic field in order to perceive direction, altitude or location, is present in several animal species but humans are not one of them.

The Most PAINFUL THINGS Humans Can Experience
From face lightning to Death by a thousand cuts, I'm Jack diving into 12 of the most painful things that can happen to a human. Here are The Most Painful Things Humans can Experience. Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ Watch our " 10 Strangest PHOBIAS and FEARS in the World" https://youtu.be/fVqBBhc9Y3U Watch our “12 Creepiest Cults And Absurd Religious Practices” https://youtu.be/J7SUtnvlSEI 10 Most DISTURBING MOVIES Ever Made https://youtu.be/_SG_XsdZx90 12 - Tooth Abscess Abscess’ can occur anywhere throughout the body, but nowhere as close to the number of nerves that reside near your teeth. The tooth itself feels no pain, for clarification. The nerves behind the teeth are where the magic happens so to speak. If allowed, tooth decay -- which is a buildup of bacteria -- will reach the root of the tooth. This is when the pain is felt and has been labeled with such terms as “excruciating,” “torturous,” and simply “hell.” The cure for such a problem is a root-canal with hopes the bacteria hasn’t spread to other nerves in the gums, but why wait until it reaches this state when the problem is so easily circumvented with daily teeth brushing. Your dentists aren’t lying! 11 - Break the Wheel No, we're not talking the Daenerys Targaryen “break the wheel” we’re talking the medieval, barbaric execution method where the victim is tied to a wooden carriage wheel and their limbs are bludgeoned until each are mangled, broken, and malformed. Oh, and then they are left there alive, screaming in pain, on display for everyone to see. It was only a matter of time before malevolent cruelty set in and people were kept alive longer by giving them strong alcohol disguised as water that any man dying of thirst would salivate after. 10 – Gout With modern science, we know Gout is the onset of arthritis, but that doesn’t explain what gout is and the pain isn't any less severe. Symptoms include severe attacks of pain usually accompanied by hot red swelling of the affected area. The site becomes so tender that something as subtle as the weight of a bed sheet or a gust of wind is enough to make you clench in pain. It was once called the wealthy diet in olden days because a “rich” diet was discovered as one of the causes. In modern days a wealthy diet is a healthy diet with the costly rise of health foods, and gout is more common than ever since the so-called “wealthy” diet was really just overindulgence. 09 – Bullet Ant Sting The Schmidt Index is a pain rating scale for Hymenopteran stings – a large sub-category of insects...and where the Paraponera Clavataca (Bullet Ant) reigns as king. There is no shortage of insect stings caught on camera and posted right here on YouTube, but there is something utterly horrifying in every reaction from someone who gets stung by the Bullet Ant. Their eyes redden, their skin turns white. They collapse to the ground and writhe with pain. (Don’t believe me? Just look it up.) The sting of bullet ant is described as walking over burning charcoals with a 4-inch nail seated firmly in the heel as you do so. Many Brazilian tribes use the Bullet Ant bite as a rite of passage into the tribe and into manhood. I don’t know about you, but one word comes to my mind. NOPE! 08 – Trigeminal Neuralgia The Trigeminal nerve is a nerve that carries the sensation from your entire face to your brain. If you have Trigeminal Neuralgia, this signal is altered to the extremity or diluted. Let me explain. The brain interprets the messages your face is sending it, and the result is either extreme pain or a lack of response from your face. Something as easy as blowing your nose can turn into life-halting headaches. Brushing your teeth could make you yearn for them to fall out of your head. Or you can try to smile at that prom date you’ve had your eye on only to realize your face refused to bend to your will. Many patients that have the Neuralgia claim the sensation feels like a lightning bolt to the head. Have you ever been too scared to smell something out of fear it’ll send your brain into crazy mode and cause severe pain? I haven’t and I’d rather it stayed that way. I like the roses... 07 – Lingchi The “Death by a thousand cuts,” as it more commonly is known, is a heinous torture and execution method most frequently used in China and Vietnam up until the 1900’s. Using a knife the executioner would methodically remove portions of the body over a long period of time for the sole purpose of prolonging the suffering before death – and death was always the result.

A good portion of people love what they do, while others have jobs that you would never consider doing in your life. So how does your job compare to these horrible professions? I'm Lorenzo with Insane Curiosity, and here are 8 of the worst jobs in the world. Number 8 – Pet Food Quality Inspector Have you ever taken a piece of your dog or cat's kibble, just to see what it tastes like? Do you have a good sense of smell? Can you tell when food doesn't have the right amount of seasoning, or when one ingredient overpowers the dish? If you answered yes to all these questions, you might consider a job as a professional pet food taster. With pay starting around $35,000 a year, pet food tasters eat dog and cat food to ensure that it's of the finest quality. Essentially, you should be prepared to open fresh tins of pet food, smell all the simple subtilties, and proceed to eat it. As a professional taster, you'll receive training to help you learn what dogs and cats like in food. You'll also ensure that all the pet food ingredients complement one another completely. You're basically looking for a great taste, texture, and consistency. But if you're wondering whether this job is safe, don't worry, as there are laws in place which state that animal food must use human-grade freshly prepared raw ingredients. Although that doesn't mean you're not bound to find some disgusting smelling and tasting pet foods while researching the competition. Aside from testing foods, you'll also need strong writing skills, because you'll create reports where you explain the nutritional benefits of the animal foods you've tested. And just in case you were wondering, you don't always have to swallow the food if you don't like it. However, many testers prefer digesting the food instead of spitting it out. Yuck! Number 7 – Crocodile Trainer Whenever I think about dangerous and exciting careers, for some reason crocodile trainer isn’t high on my list. However, some say that crocodile wrangling and training is one of the most dangerous professions available. In many Asian countries, people host crocodile stunt shows, where they stick their arms, feet, and yes, even their head inside a crocodile’s open mouth. It’s an incredible risk considering alligators weigh around 600 pounds, they can be up to 14 feet long, and they have enough strength to swim with deer in their mouth. Now, to watch crocodiles from outside the enclosure is about as extreme as most people get. But sticking your head in a crocodile’s mouth is crazy. Add to the fact that most crocodile trainers only make $10 a day in Asia, and about $25 an hour in the United States to risk their lives for tourists and locals means that this is obviously one of the worst jobs you can have, at least if you want to live a long, healthy life. Number 6 – Crime Scene Cleaner Have you ever wondered who cleans up a crime scene? It turns out that cleaning up crime scenes after a homicide, suicide, unintended , or an industrial accident is someone’s job. They also deal with cleaning up hoarder homes, when homes are filled with tear gas, and after other trauma. At first, it might not seem that bad, until you hear stories about what some crime scene cleaners find in people’s homes. As you already know, people decompose quickly. When there are unintended that go unnoticed for months, you can deal with many unexpected visitors. For example, it’s not strange for a crime scene cleaner to locate a body filled with flies and maggots. It’s worsened if the person is a hoarder, which adds lots of trash and potentially rodents to the space. And of course, as a crime scene cleaner, it’s your job to clean everything, even the things. But ignore what you’re cleaning up, and think about the smell of decaying corpses. After cleaning up a few bodies in the summer sun, it’s enough to make you sick to your stomach. Number 5 – Roadkill Collector We’ve all witnessed animals on the road, but have you ever realized that it’s someone’s job to clean up the blood and guts? Roadkill is a term that describes any animal in a motor vehicle accident. It can include many creatures, including wolves, bears, birds, and possums. But often, roadkill collectors clean up the carcasses of deer, who cause over 1 million auto collisions per year.

10 Crazy Facts About BLACK HOLES in SPACE explained
From turning things into spaghetti to erasing your past, these are 10 Crazy Facts About BLACK HOLES in SPACE explained: they are fascinating, interesting, let' s explore the universe, with this astronomy lesson. Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ 10. They weren’t discovered by Einstein Even though Albert Einstein predicted black holes in 1916 with his general theory of relativity, he wasn’t the first one to hypothesize about these fascinating astronomical objects. It was actually English clergyman and natural philosopher John Mitchell who first proposed the existence of black holes in a paper published in 1783, calling them "dark stars". Mitchell argued that particles emitted by a star would be slowed down by the star’s gravitational pull and calculated that this would be the case with a star more than 500 times the size of the Sun. He also predicted that these objects would be invisible since light would not be able to escape from them. Mitchell suggested that there might be many "dark stars" in the universe, which proved to be true since astronomers now know that black holes exist at the centers of most galaxies. What’s even more incredible is that Mitchell was able to accurately predict that we could detect "dark stars" by looking for star systems which behaved gravitationally like two stars. Centuries later, astronomers confirmed his prediction and determined that all of the candidate stellar black holes in our galaxy are part of binary star systems. Unfortunately, Mitchell’s ideas weren’t well received at the time and he died in obscurity. It wasn’t until the 1970s that his writings re-surfaced and his contribution to the science of black holes was recognized. 9. They make sound You were probably taught in school that there is no sound in outer space, since space is a vacuum and sound waves can’t travel through a vacuum. Well, that’s not completely true. Distortions in the fabric of spacetime, also known as gravitational waves, cause the spacetime to vibrate and produce sound when they pass near object with mass. With special equipment such as Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO, astronomers can amplify these faint sounds billions of times and actually hear what the universe sounds like. In 2003, NASA astronomers using Chandra X-ray Observatory discovered for the first time sound waves coming from a supermassive black hole. The sound was the deepest one ever detected from any object in the universe and it came from hundreds of thousands of light years away. This “noisy” black hole is located in the Perseus cluster of galaxies - one of the most massive objects in the known universe located 250 million light years from Earth. The pitch of the sound generated by the supermassive black hole translates into the note of B flat. However, a human ear would have no chance of detecting this cosmic music because the note is 57 octaves lower than middle-C and has a frequency over a million billion times deeper than the limits of human hearing. Before we move on with our list, take a second to hit that subscribe button so you don’t miss any of our upcoming content! 8. They come in different sizes When most people think of black holes, they imagine giant areas in outer space that suck in everything around them. But black holes actually come in different sizes – from microscopic to supermassive. Oh, and they don’t actually suck, but more on that later. The largest type of black hole is known as the supermassive black hole. These gargantuan objects can reach sizes equivalent to anywhere between hundreds of thousands to billions of solar masses. The most massive black hole ever discovered is TON 618, which is thought to weigh in at 66 billion times the mass of the Sun! The smallest black hole on the other hand, is only 15 miles (or 24 kilometers) in diameter and weighs in at about 3.8 times the mass of the Sun. Even though the existence of micro black holes is still purely theoretical, some scientists believe that tiny black holes may be artificially produced. In fact, physicist John Archibald Wheeler has calculated that a very powerful hydrogen bomb using all the deuterium in all the water on Earth could generate a micro black hole. 7. They don’t suck Black holes are often portrayed in science fiction movies as tunnels to other dimensions that suck everything in sight. However, this is yet another common misconception about black holes. Suction is caused by pulling an object into a vacuum, which is not what black holes are. Black holes are formed when a very massive star reaches the end of its life and explodes as a supernova. The core of the dying star compacts into an infinitely dense mathematical point with an extremely strong gravitational pull.

12 Most DANGEROUS Children's TOYS  Ever Made
You might think that killer toys only exist in horror movies, but in fact some of the most popular children’s toys ever made have caused thousands of injuries and even several deaths. You’re watching Insane Curiosity and these are 12 of the most dangerous toys ever made! 1. Polly Pockets Polly Pocket was a line of pocket-size dolls and doll accessories manufactured by well-known American toy company Mattel. Polly Pockets were designed in the form of plastic cases that could be transformed into dollhouses. The dolls came in different hairstyles, skin tones, and outfits that could be attached to the dolls with magnets. The magnet clothes were precisely why 4.4 million Polly Pockets were recalled by Mattel in 2006. Children all over the United States ended up swallowing tiny loose magnets and three toddlers even had to undergo surgery after suffering from intestinal perforation. Mattel ended up paying $13.5 million to settle a lawsuit with parents and stopped selling Polly Pockets in the US, though these hazardous toys are still available in Latin America. 2. Aqua Leisure Inflatable Baby Boats There are many benefits to teaching your baby how to swim early on, and some experts even claim that infants who regularly play in the water grow up to be more intelligent. The popularity of infant swimming has inspired a number of toy manufacturers to design different swimming aids for babies and toddlers. While many of these can help your child get used to the water quicker, others – like Aqua Leisure Inflatable Baby Boats –can pose real danger to kids. In 2009, over 4 million of these inflatable floaties, produced by a swim gear company from Massachusetts, were recalled after it was discovered that the manufacturer failed to report that the seats on the boats were prone to tearing, which resulted in over a dozen babies nearly drowning. While Aqua Leisure initially denied violating any consumer safety requirements, it agreed to pay a penalty of $650,000. 3. Hannah Montana Pop Star Card Game Disney musical TV show Hannah Montana is not only know for launching the career of pop star Miley Cyrus, but also for spawning an entire franchise that inspired thousands of commercial products, including toys contaminated with – lead! Yes, you heard that right: lab test on Hannah Montana Pop Star Card Game found that the case contained 75 times higher levels of lead than recommended by The American Academy of Pediatrics. Lead has the tendency to accumulate in the body over time and cause a variety of health problems, especially in young children. Still, Disney managed to legal-loophole its way out of a lawsuit after claiming the lead was only found in the vinyl and not in the paint used on cards. So even though the lead levels discovered on these toys were dangerously high, Hannah Montana Pop Star Card Game ended up earning $100 million in sales. 4. Magnetix Building Sets Magnetix Building Sets are construction toys made of plastic and magnet pieces that can be connected to build different structures. The Consumer Product Safety Commission had previously warned that toys containing small magnet pieces are extremely dangerous, since when a child ingests more than one magnet, the pieces can get attached to one another inside the intestines and cause life-threatening injuries. Despite the warning, Magnetix was for a while one of the most popular construction toys in the US, and among top 100 best-selling products on Amazon. However, once the news broke that 21-month old Kenny Sweet Jr. from Seattle died from asphyxiation after swallowing a magnet and over 20 other toddlers suffered serious injuries, 4 million of the original Magnetix Building Sets were recalled in 2007. The company now only sells redesigned building sets intended for children aged 6 and older. 5. Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper Inspired by the eponymous spacecraft from the popular science fiction TV series Battlestar Galactica, Mattel’s Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper was a toy that every boy in 1978 wanted to find under his Christmas tree. Even though the toy spacecraft could fire tiny missiles that were an obvious choking hazard, the early boxes didn’t include a warning label. Sadly, on Christmas Day 1978, 4-year-old Robert Jeffrey Warren Lilburn, Georgia pointed the toy toward his mouth while he was playing and discharged a missile that got stuck in his throat. By the time the doctors managed to remove the toy, the boy had already been oxygen-deprived for a large amount of time and sadly passed away in the hospital a few days after Christmas. After the boy’s parents sued Mattel, the toy manufacturer recalled the Colonial Viper and choking hazard labels became mandatory for all toys with small loose pieces. 6. The Slip N’ Slide Who could have thought back in 1961 when Slip N’ Slide was first ..

12 Most Strangest Things Searched on Google
What do you think: is Google making everyone stupid? Judging by some of the questions people type in Google, it surely seems like it. I’m Lorenzo from Insane Curiosity and you’re watching “Top 20 Strangest Things People Have Searched on Google”. 12. Can Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that he himself could not eat it? We’re not sure where exactly this question originates from, but we know it became one of the most popular Google searches after it appeared on an episode of the animated sitcom The Simpsons. In episode called “Weekend at Burnsie's”, Homer is prescribed medical marijuana after an eye injury, which inspires him to pose some seriously “deep” questions, including the burrito one. As silly as this question sounds, it actually represents one version of the omnipotence paradox, which goes: "Can an omnipotent God create a stone so heavy that he cannot lift it?" The question is a paradox because God can either create a stone it cannot lift, or it cannot create a stone it cannot lift. If he can create a stone that he cannot lift, then he will no longer be omnipotent. But if he cannot create a stone he cannot lift, then he’s never been omnipotent to begin with. Makes your head spin, doesn’t it? 11. Do pigs sweat? “Sweating like a pig” is a common expression in English language, but have you ever wondered if pigs actually sweat? Pigs, like all mammals, possess sweat glands, but these are not fully functional. While sweating helps humans control their body temperature, pigs need to wallow in the mud to cool down when it gets too hot and humid outside. So where does the expression come from then? It turns out “sweating like a pig” actually refers to pig iron, a semi-finished form of iron used in production of steel. When pig iron is created from iron ore, the ore is heated to extreme temperatures, and then left to cool before it can be moved into a mold. As the metal cools down, small droplets of water are formed on its surface, resembling sweat on the skin. 10. What would aliens look like? Wouldn’t we all like to know! The possibility of extraterrestrial life has been the subject of countless books, movies, TV shows, and other works of fiction. In most cases, aliens are depicted as humanoids that resemble our own species, but is there really any scientific reason to believe that aliens would look like people? Some scientists claim that, if other forms of intelligent life exist in the Universe, they must be carbon-based, since carbon atoms are the building blocks of life as we know it. However, others say that we shouldn’t exclude the possibility that alien life might have evolved from other elements such as silicon. At the end of the day, we really don’t know what aliens would look like and maybe it doesn’t even matter since, to quote famed sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke, "Whether we are based on carbon or on silicon makes no fundamental difference; we should each be treated with appropriate respect" 9. How many people have dropped their cell phone in the toilet? It happens to the best of us: you’re just about to flush down the toilet, when your hear that dreaded “plop” sound your cell phone makes when it drops in the toilet. Even though this scenario might make you feel like the biggest idiot on the planet, don’t worry: nearly 1 out of every 5 people have dropped their phone in the toilet more than once. Here’s what you need to do when you drop your cell phone in the toilet: take it out as fast as possible, open the battery cover, remove the battery, and let all the parts air dry thoroughly on a piece of paper towel. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to remove the moisture from the inner parts of your phone, but keep your phone away from the blow dryer as the heat can damage sensitive electrical components on the inside. Oh, and don’t worry about the bacteria: according to a study from the University of Arizona, your cell phone is 10 times dirtier than the toilet! 8. What is Obama's last name? Seeing questions like these really makes you wonder whether certain people should be required to pass a test before they’re allowed to vote in the elections. Believe it or not, this was one of the most googled questions about the former president of the United States, whose full name is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., which means that Obama IS his last name. The 44th President of the United States is named after his father, an economist born in a small village of Kogelo in the southwest part of Kenya. Obama is an old Kenyan surname, normally found among the Luo people, the fourth largest ethnic group in Kenya. The surname originated from the root word obam, which means “to lean, bend, or limp.”

Most Popular Social Media Websites & Apps. Top 10:(2018)
Top 10 Most Popular Social Media Websites & Apps in 2018 From the most popular app among teenagers to the social media giant used by one third of the world’s population, these are Top 10 most popular social media websites and apps in 2018! 10. Snapchat Founded in 2011 by Bobby Murphy, Evan Spiegel, and Reggie Brown, Snapchat is a multimedia messaging app where users can send images and videos to friends. What makes Snapchat different from other similar apps is that these images are only available for a short time before they disappear. Unlike normal texting and sending pictures back and forth, Snapchat more closely mimics a face-to-face conversation since the interaction feels more authentic. Snapchat also features various filters or lenses, which allow users to add special effects to an image or video. Snapchat users are also able to add virtual stickers, text, and doodles on their pictures or videos to personalize them further. As of January 2018, Snapchat has over 300 million monthly active users and the vast majority of those are and young adults aged 18-24. People under the age of 25 use Snapchat for 40 minutes on average every day, which is more than Instagram’s latest statistic for the same demographic. More than 20,000 photos are shared every second on Snapchat and 528,000 snaps are sent every minute. Snapchat is also hugely popular among celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and even former First Lady Michelle Obama. 9. Reddit Reddit, founded in 2005 by University of Virginia roommates Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman, is an online community and social networking platform that enables users to submit links, create content, and discuss the topics of their interest with other registered members. The various posts are organized by subject into user-created boards called subreddits. These subreddits cover a variety of topics, including news, TV shows, music, video games, movies, science, food, fitness, and many more. Users – called ‘redditors’ can give individual posts a rating, either up or down, which will boost or lower the posts position on the site. Submissions with more up-votes appear towards the top of their subreddit and, if they receive enough votes, ultimately on the site's front page. As of February 2018, Reddit had 542 million monthly visitors, ranking as the #3 most visited website in U.S. and #6 in the world. While Reddit has been praised for its open nature and diverse user community, it has also come under fire for allowing subreddits dedicated to explicit or content. However, Reddit's admins have said that they don’t ban communities solely for featurinl content. According to Reddit's general manager Erik Martin, having to stomach occasional morally questionable subreddits is a part of the price of free speech. Do you agree with Martin or not? Let us know in the comment section below! 8. Twitter Created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams, Twitter has grown into much more than a social networking platform. Today, Twitter is a relevant online news source. On the day of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Twitter proved to be the largest source of breaking news, with 40 million election-related tweets sent by 10 p.m. Twitter allows users to post and interact with 280-character messages known as Tweets. The service, which is available as both a mobile app and a desktop version, is similar to Tumblr and Instagram in that the content a user posts will appear in their followers’ feeds, and vice versa. Users can also accompany their tweets with images, videos, gifs, and hyperlinks. In March 2018, Twitter was ranked #12 most visited website by Alexa's web traffic analysis. Daily user estimates vary since the company doesn’t publish statistics on active accounts. According to latest estimates, Twitter has around 330 monthly active users, but about 23 million of those are actually bots. One subset of Twitter bots played an important role in the United States 2016 Presidential Election. Researchers estimated that pro-Trump bots generated four tweets for every pro-Clinton automated account and out-tweeted pro-Clinton bots 7:1 on relevant hashtags during the final debate.

Google+ Google+ is Google’s fourth social networking service, following Google Buzz, Google Friend Connect, and Orkut. Just like Facebook – though far less popular - this social network allows users to post photos and status updates to the stream, connect with friends and family, and chat or video call privately or in groups with other users in Google Hangouts.

15 of the STRONGEST BODYBUILDERS In The World (2018)
Bodybuilding is a tough sport, but a handful of people have excelled to the level of brilliance in the sport. From Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Incredible Hulk, here is our list of 15 of the strongest bodybuilders of all time. 15: Shawn Ray Starting off our list, Shawn Ray is definitely worth a mention, as throughout his career he was able to maintain a good positioning in the Mr Olympia competitions. In over 30 major bodybuilding competitions, Ray only failed to place in the top five once, which is astounding to behold. He is also an acclaimed author now, through writing books about his experiences bodybuilding, and how others can follow his path to success. 14. Kevin Levrone: Kevin Mark Levrone competed in 68 International Federation of Body Building contests over his very long career. He has won 23 pro shows, which until 2004 was an all time record. He tells that he first got into the gym after seeing his cousin come home from the military. Levrone has competed in 13 Mr Olympia challenges, but never actually won one, earning him the name ‘The Uncrowned King of Mr Olympia’. He attended the 2016 competition through special invite, and was actually able to prepare for the competition in an amazing 5 months. He has acted in several films and is also a musician. 13. Lou Ferrigno: Many know this bodybuilder as the original Hulk on the popular TV series in the 1978. He has won a Mr America title, and two consecutive Mr Universe titles. He trained with the famous Arnold Schwarzenegger and appeared in bodybuilding documentary Pumping Iron. In the film he attempts to surpass Schwarzenegger in a body building competition. The film is what gave Lou his acting career. Though Lou doesn’t have the absolutely ultimate bodybuilding record, he needs to be recognised purely for the popularity he achieved through bodybuilding. 12. Johnie O Jackson: Johnnie Otis Jackson is a professional bodybuilder that still maintains an incredibly successful career, starting back in 1998. In the year of 2009 Johnnie Jackson benched 523 pounds and deadlifted 815 pounds to win the Mr Olympia title. Johnnie is often referred to as the strongest bodybuilder of all time due to his unreal strength. He is also one of the few competitors that has taken part in the Mr Olympia contest for 13 years in a row. And is always mentioned when we speak about the greatest bodybuilders of all time. His sheer strength is enough to earn him a place on our list! 11. Flex Wheeler: This man was described by Arnold Schwarzneggar himself, as one of the greatest bodybuilders to enter professional competitions, and Ronnie Coleman a bodybuilder we’ll meet much later on in this list, is quoted in saying that Flex is one of the best bodybuilders he has come up against. He won the Arnold classic an astounding 4 times. He was born in Fresno California, and didn’t grow up in the best financial circumstances. At an early age he experienced child abuse and often thought about suicide. He also struggled in school, but found a guiding light in the art of martial arts, which eventually lead him to the sport of bodybuilding, though he still labels himself as ‘a martial artist first, and a bodybuilder second’. He is a 5-time ironman pro winner and despite a near-fatal car accident in 1994, has recently made a comeback, competing in the Mr Olympia championships and coming in 15th. The sheer struggle this man has been through is enough to make others through in the towel, but his tenacity places him on our list. 10. Roelly Winklar: Nicknamed ‘the dutch beast’ for obvious reasons, Roelly has a competition weight of 230 pounds. He first came to the fore in the Arnold amateur championships, which he won, displaying a great combination of shredded appearance, and brute strength. In terms of other victories under Roelly’s belt, he came first in the New York Pro shortly after his aforementioned victory, and in 2013, won the Chicago pro. He has a really impressive history in competitions, and is a name thrown around with the greatest in the sport, even today. 9. Phillip Heath: This guy has won the Mr Olympia competition seven times in a row. So we can easily see, just from that, he belongs on our list. He played basketball in high school to an average standard, but it was this sport playing that got him interested in general fitness. He entered bodybuilding in 2002. He had a rocky start to completing in the Mr Olympia competitions, coming 5th, 2nd and then missing one due to a stomach virus. But his run started shortly after this in 2011, every year since then up until 2017 he has won the Mr Olympia title, which takes a massive amount of skill that must be praised. His current places him in a tie with Arnold Schwarzenegger just behind Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman. 8. Kai Greene: Kai Greene didn’t have a great start in life, he was in and out of foster care and residential treatment centres. Due to this rocky..

15 Surprisingly High Paying Jobs
From chasing escaped convicts to preparing bodies for funeral, these are the top 15 most surprising jobs that pay good money! 15. Portable Toilet Route Driver The job of the portable toilet route drivers is to bring and service portable toilets where they are needed, from crowded concert venues to sporting events to construction sites. They perform an essential service when a facility doesn’t have enough, or any, working restrooms. Keep in mind though that one important condition for this job is the ability to lift more than 70 pounds and climb in and out of a truck more than 60 times per day — those thrones don’t lift themselves. Other qualifications include a valid drivers’ license, driving record clear of accidents, moving violations, and DUIs, experience towing and backing up trailers, and no felony convictions or criminal record that would prevent access to client facilities. But this odd job sure pays well! The pay range is between $17 and $20.35 an hour and the job comes with paid time off, tuition reimbursement, job training and union benefits. 14. Bounty Hunter Remember Duane “Dog” Chapman, the star of the old TV series “Dog the Bounty Hunter”? Well, then you probably know just how odd the job of a bounty hunter can be. But did you know a bounty hunter can make just as much, if not more, than law enforcement officers? Bounty hunters serve as fugitive recovery agents for the bail bond industry. For the most part, bounty hunters are independent contractors hired by bail bond companies to search for clients who have skipped bail. Bounty hunters usually receive 10% of the bail bond’s face value for bringing in a fugitive. To become a bounty hunter, you’ll have to complete a training program, either from a private academy or community college. An experienced bounty hunter who works 80 to 150 cases a year can earn anywhere from $50,000 to $80,000 annually. But the hours are long and grueling - sometimes 80 to 100 hours a week - and the work is tough. As a bounty hunter, you have to drive around sketchy neighborhoods, talk to dangerous people, and look for bad guys. But, hey at least you’ll be spared the boredom of an office job! 13. Pet Waste Service Technician Here’s how a day in the life of a typical pet technician looks like: you arrive at the office around 6 am in your uniform and a comfortable pair of work boots. You go over your daily route with the manager and pick up your supplies: sanitizing spray, scooper and rake, brown spot treatment, deodorizer, pet waste bags, pet waste stations, and of course, pockets full of dog treats! Then you get into your truck and head to your first stop. At the spot, you dispose of the collected pet waste as preferred by the owner, hang a yellow tag on the door and then beginn the crucial foot ware sanitation process to ensure that no dangerous bacteria is ever tracked from one yard, into another. Then you drop in on your next community to perform common area cleanings and stop at each pet waste station to refill pet waste station bags and empty out the receptacles. At the end of the work day, you clean up your truck, return any unused inventory, and head out for the day knowing that you did your part to make the pet owners’ lives easier, save them time, and keep the waterways clean. Well done! So if you don’t mind picking up dog , or other animal droppings, you can earn some side cash as a pet waste service technician. According to job postings from career website Indeed, a pet waste service technician can earn as much as $15 per hour, have a set weekday schedule and enjoy a paid vacation. Before we move on with our list, take a second to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss any of our upcoming content! 12. Cruise Ship Entertainer Entertainers have a variety of jobs to pursue, from voiceovers to acting in Hollywood to singing in a coffeehouse to dancing on Broadway. They also can audition for a role as an entertainer on a cruise ship. These jobs are competitive and require an audition or an audition video, at the least. If you can land one, though, they are one of the best jobs that let you see the world for free. A singer on a cruise line can make upwards of $4,000 to $5,000 monthly. Depending on the cruise line and cruise ship’s size – there can be up to 25 musicians on board at a time. Contracts are staggered to ensure that the same numbers of musicians are on board throughout the year. These musicians and bands often perform simultaneously. The most commons types of cruise ship musician jobs are solo musicians, duos, jazz quartets, party bands, orchestra, and show band musicians. According to one cruise ship entertainer who makes a living playing guitar and bass, the best thing about this job is that “the passengers think you’re a .” So, if you ever dreamed of being a rockstar, here’s your chance! 1

12 Things You Didn't Know About Iphone X
It seems these days that everyone and their mothers eagerly await the release of then next iPhone from Apple. They are the leading brand of smartphone without a doubt, and with the new iPhone X design appearing to be as divisive as the latest phones often are, we thought we’d tell you a few things you don’t know about the iPhone X. The Magic of Face ID The iPhone X’s face ID is looking to be the most advanced facial recognition technology to date in a smartphone. A great little stroke of privacy, the phone will initially show your texts, calls and social media updates just as ‘notification’ on screen. However, once it spots your face, the phone will then display your notifications. Amazing right? Also, when the phone is ringing the ringtone will sound at its standard volume, but once it spots your face looking at it, it will instantly turn down the ringtone as it is aware that you are looking at it. Though this may be a bit creepy when you really think about it, its definitely a massive leap in facial recognition software, almost as if your phone is staring back at you! Switching apps will be easier It used to be a bit of a hassle switching apps in the old iPhone. You would have to click the home button twice, sometimes the feature wouldn’t work or perhaps your home button was broken and you wouldn’t be able to switch apps easily. Well that problem is a thing of the past now! When you’re in an app in the iPhone X, you will notice a black line at the bottom of the screen, if you flick this up, you’ll see a roledex-esque reel of your apps and you can flick from one to the other with ease. This is not much different than the original design for changing apps in an iPhone but will provide a sleeker and faster service without a doubt! Reflection Tired of the classic iPhone ring, its a ringtone that feels like its been around for ages! Well good news for you people, the iPhone X has a new default ringtone! It’s called Reflection and it is supposedly very beautiful! Just make sure you make a note of it, as if you don’t you might miss your own phone ringing! Apple have always been quite good at coming up with catchy and nice ringtones, and supposedly this new one is no exception to that rule! And Im thinking that the name of the ringtone must be a reference to the iPhone X’s sleek new screen! More Face ID Magic Thought the face ID only helped you check your notifications or lowered the volume or your ringtone? Well it does even more than that, the face ID will work for apps that require a log in. So logging into and accessing your bank account will be as easy as looking at your screen! Magical! Easy to use torch Have you found yourself in a dark room before? Or maybe the lights have gone out or there has been a power cut, and you’ve had to fumble around for your iPhone, unlock it or drag the screen upwards and click the torch icon to get a bit of light. Accessing the torch can be a bit of a hassle on old iterations of iPhones and iOS, well now the torch icon will appear on your lock screen! It is placed at the bottom left, just across from the camera icon. Meaning it’ll be a lot easier to access your torch and illuminate any dark space you find yourself in, another nifty little benefit of the iPhone X! The expense The base price for the iPhone X is just under 1000 dollars. And although the new phone is looking very, very good and it is predicted there will be a lot of sales, this is still a major price for a phone. It cuts out a lot of the market straight away, as there are people who will definitely not pay a grand for a phone. The standard model has 64GB of data And, if you think this is bad, if you want to splurge on a bit more memory and get the 256GB phone, well that’ll cost extra, coming to a massive $1,125. And this is not even including the feature AppleCare+, which is 200 dollars on its own. I’m breaking out into a sweat just looking at these prices! Fast Charging One feature of the new iPhone that most showcases skipped right past, is that it will support fast charging. Though this is a feature on many android phones already, it’s nice to see the iPhone supporting this feature, that means if you use your charger, you’ll be able to get a 50%. Charge in around 30 minutes. Fantastic news for all those who will be glued to their screens! There will be two models Different countries have different frequency bands for wireless connection, and it is challenging for apple to design a phone that is compatible with all the different frequency bands used around the world. So the only way they saw fit to be able to solve this problem is by making two separate iPhones that are designed for different sets of frequency bands. This is a lot of expense for Apple but they believe that it will pay off, as the iPhone X will work seemlessly nearly everywhere in the world. Just make sure you get the right one for the area you are in! X marks the spot?

9 Facts You Didn't Know About The Fast And  Furious
Fast and Furious has become one of the most successful film franchises in the world, the story of a few guys and their cars seems silly, But the franchise is going from strength to strength after . Here are 8 things you probably don’t know about the Fast and Furious franchise. 8 Vin Diesel trades Cameo for film Before Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift, Vin Diesel was an up and coming name in acting. He had had quite a main role in the huge World War 2 film Saving Private Ryan and was looking to take the box office by storm. And one film that he could not get out of his head, was his low-budget break out role in Pitch Black where he played loner Richard Riddick, saying it was ‘the story of his life’ at a speech he gave at one point. After the first Fast and Furious movie he turned them down on their offer to be in the two sequels following the original. But, then Vin Diesel agreed to make a cameo in Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift that would signal a more main role in the movie after that. Vin Diesel agreed, but under one condition, that, instead of an acting fee, Diesel and his film company One Race get the rights to the character of Riddick. He made the Riddick film in 2013, both starring and producing it. It was met with mixed reviews, but he was able to make the movie he wanted to, and of course the cameo in Fast andFurious has definitely paid off to! 7 Rumours of another actor for main role It’s hard to imagine anyone else but the (unfortunately deceased) Paul Walker as protagonist Brian O’Connor. He ended up making the role his own and the Fast and Furious franchise would be unrecognisable without him. But there was a host of other actors willing to take up the role, one that was rumoured would be someone we all know. Rap superstar Eminem, was supposedly on the cards to take up the role at one point. The director thought his stone-faced austere nature would be perfect for the character. Well this never turned out to happen, and it’s probably within both of the guys best interests. Eminem has had a massively successful career and obviously made his acting debut in the hugely acclaimed film 8 mile, and Paul Walker landed the role of a lifetime, that he will always be remembered for! 6 Real life speed demon? Vin Diesel has said that he used to be a bit of a speed demon when he was much much younger. He said he used to drive around at crazy speeds around New York, and got multiple tickets. But after landing the role in the Fast and Furious movies and it recieiving widespread popularity, he said he realised he had to slow down. He reigned his reckless driving in because he believed that being caught speeding would put a dent in his public image. And that if he was caught speeding, ‘there’d probably be a national holiday’.The women of the cast are also very fast on the road, Michelle Rodriguez who played Letty actually got her license for the film! And said she got so many tickets in the initial stages of filming, she wondered after a while whether she should buy a Prius and play it safe! The origins of the story Many people enjoy the Fast and Furious movies for their fast paced, high intensity storytelling. But not a lot of those fans know what the initial spark was that helped the story to be created. It was actually from an article in a 90’s magazine called Vibe that told of a drag racer known as Raphael Estevez. With quotes like ‘Estevez leads a new generation of fearless young racers burning up New York’s streets and racetracks in their tricked-out Japanese compacts.’ Its easy to see the similarities to the movies. It informed readers of this new craze of tweaking old and sometimes outdated cars to become new souped-up race cars. ‘His eyes are lowered half-mast, nodding occasionally like he’s studying what the car has to tell him. For Estevez, it’s not the contest between racers that really matters but the abstract dialogue between the soul of a racer and his machine.’, this could be from a Fast and Furious novel! 5 Bigger than Star Wars You know your film has achieved some serious popularity when it is bigger than Star Wars. The race was on in 2017 to produce the highest grossing movie. Star Wars: The Force Awakens looked set to take the title as the film boasted a revisit to the world that all sci-fi fans know and love, with new characters, settings and a brand new storyline. But The Fate of the Furious surpassed it quite heavily! As Star Wars grossed around 600 million dollars, whereas the movie franchise once called ‘Point Break with cars’ got a whopping 700 million dollar box office gross from its worldwide debut! That goes to show that these films have grown over the years, and certainly do have the power to pull in massive swathes of the public everywhere in the world! 4 Ludacris Fighting The once-rapper, now actor Ludacris was desparate to have a fight scene in Fast and Furious 7. He wanted an opportunity to throw

10 of the Most EXPENSIVE SUSHI in the World
these are 10 of the most expensive sushi restaurants in the world. Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ Naoe, Miami In a quiet corner of bustling and busy Miami, Chef Kevin Cory serves only a handful of customers a night: two seatings of eight guests each. The omakase menu, which changes nightly, costs $200, and you can pair it with sake from chef Cory’s family distillery. In 2013 the restaurant won a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award. All this pricey-ness and acclaim may fool some into thinking it’s a place where your decorum must match the restaurants opulence but this is not the case, upon visiting Naoe’s website, you’ll notice that there is no dress code and you are able to wear casual clothes, Kevin Cory wants you to be comfortable as you enjoy his delightful cuisine. 9 Sukiyabashi Jiro When one of the best chefs in the world says your sushi place is his favourite, and proclaims that your restaurant taught him that ‘sushi was an art’, you can’t be doing much wrong. Of course, we are talking about Sukiyabashi Jiro a sushi restaurant in the Ginza District of Tokyo. This place is so amazing it’s the subject of a 2011 documentary film. AND guess who also went in there and reportedly claimed it was the best sushi he ever had? Only the former President of the USA Barack Obama! He went in there to dine with Shinzo Abe, and though there are conflicting reports on whether he finished his plate or not, Shinzo said that Obama called it the best sushi he’s had in his life. Though, before you start thinking you could dine there, a standard meal runs up at about $300! A bit pricey to say the least! 8 Aida Good sushi is not just enjoyed in Asia, it’s delectable qualities are available all over the world, and to prove this, next we’re going to France! Aida is known as one of the top sushi places in the whole of France and it resides in the French capital of Paris. Visitors to the restaurant call the experience a unique one, as a Michelin star chef cooks your meal right before your eyes. A lot of customers note the price though, as the minimum you can get away with spending comes to around $160, a standard meal would come to around $280. It’s a lot to pay but people often do, as it remains an extremely popular attraction for tourists and locals alike, and is known by some as the greatest sushi restaurant in France. 7 Sushi Samba If ever you visit foggy old London Town, as you come into the centre of the capital. You might go past a very tall building that looks extremely fancy. Well, written on the outside of the building in red neon lighting, is ‘Sushi Samba’. This is one of the most famous places to eat raw fish in the whole of London. They offer sushi rolls with gold and caviar and Kobe beef that can run you up to a grand reportedly. The atmosphere is supposedly unbeatable and the entrance appears as if it were an entrance to a club, with security on each side of the door and a red carpet to wait on. But with excellent service and breathtaking views of London in the restaurant situated on the 38th floor of a very tall building, this sounds like a rare and amazing experience. 6 Masa Chef Masa has supposedly always had a close relationship to food since he was very young. And as he was learning how to serve sushi he was under direction of a master of the craft, Sugiyama Toshiaki. The fruits of his labours are now apparent in his New York based Sushi restaurant ‘Masa’. Supposedly costing around $450 per person, and an eye-watering $200 to cancel a reservation, chef Masa is not giving his well-crafted sushi away for free. His restaurant is actually situated on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center in Manhattan. Famous for using exotic ingredients like truffles and Kobe beef, and having his fish flown straight in from Japan, Chef Masa will be spotted behind the counter of the restaurant a lot of the time. He is incredibly passionate about his restaurant and the art of sushi, and it definitely shows in this amazing experience of a sushi place. 5 Urasawa Urasawa is run by Hiroyuki Urasawa, and is a sushi restaurant located in Beverley Hills, USA. Urasawa is former understudy of Masa Takayama so it only is natural that he would follow his master in both price and excellence. His restaurant is definitely up there in terms of the most expensive in the world. In 2014 it was reported that Urasawa costed an average of $1,100 per person. Though this may be disputed, it still goes to show the level of expense that we are dealing with. Ironically, Urasawa got fined in 2013 for underpaying it staff, even though you’d think they would have a lot of money to support ..

Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ 10. Rosetta Stone Yes, the Rosetta Stone is actually a real thing! It may just look like a rock with some inscriptions on it. But this stone unlocked the secrets of so much of history. It was discovered all the way back in 1799. What is so special about it? The Rosetta Stone has, on it’s surface, the same decree in three different languages. Those three being: Ancient Egyptian Hierogylphs, Demotic script, and Ancient Greek. Before this stone was found these languages confounded linguistic experts. But being that it was the same passage written in the different languages, it was easy to decipher what symbols corresponded to what words. Well there you have it, don’t worry! There are a whole lot of amazing discoveries still out there, waiting to be found by you! Don’t forget to like this video, share it with your friends and subscribe to our channel for more content like this! Thanks for watching! 9. Pompeii Everyone should have heard of Pompeii, as it is one of the most famous archaeological discoveries of all time, due to the circumstances in which it was created. After a devastating volcanic eruption happened near the Roman city in 79 AD, molten ash and lava descended from Mt Vesuvius. The resulting eruption killed the people of Pompeii and consumed them entirely. Though this is bad news for them, being that they were buried under ash, this means that no air or moisture was able to get to them, meaning that countless objects and people are extremely well preserved, and have been for just under 2000 years. This makes for loads of amazing discoveries, about how people used to live back then, and also what they did when faced with inevitable destruction! 8 The Cave of Altamira Despite what you might think, Archaeological discoveries have been made throughout history, and everyone gives us new theories and facts about prehistoric times. One of the discoveries that made a big difference to what we know about the world today is the Cave of Altamira, it was discovered around 1880. As you can tell from the date, it was one of the first discoveries of its kind, and pictures in the cave depict human hands and mammals among many other interesting things. It is thought that these discoveries originally date back around 16,000 years ago. This discovery cemented a lot of the things we know to be true about prehistoric times, and so was incredibly important! 7 Easter Island Moai No, Archaeological discoveries do not strictly have to be digging something up and finding it. On originally travelling to Easter Island, Archaeologists recorded nearly 900 Easter Island Heads! Wondering what they are? Think Squidwards house from Spongebob! These statues are thought to be a tribute to the indigenous people of the island that lived around 1250 to 1500. Many can’t provide an answer to how the heads were moved to where they are now, with the people of the island maintaining that they used magic to command the statues to get up and walk. That definitely takes a bit of a leap of faith to believe, and they would have to be pretty strong magical legs as the heads are huge! 6 The Staffordshire Hoard Ever see people walking around on the beach or in a field with a metal detector? They may look a bit silly, but don’t go thinking that this method of exploration hasn’t unearthed anything of value. A run-of-the-mill metal detectorist was searching around a field in Staffordshire when he found what is now known as the Staffordshire Hoard. Consisting of around 3500 items from Anglo-Saxon England. The hoard makes up about 60% of the materials that we have found from the Anglo-Saxon times, so it is safe to say that it taught historians a lot about how those people really lived. And that metal detectorist? He’s a millionaire now, so go grab a metal detector and get looking! 5 Richard III’s Grave Richard the Third doesn’t have the best reputation, he Wass allegedly a reckless, conceited and conniving man. Yet, with all of this infamy, his burial site remained a mystery for an extremely long time, until that is, in 2012, when archaeologists teamed up with the University of Leicester and they were able to locate the burial site. He was laid to rest where the Greyfriars Friary Church once was. Richard III was reportedly a hunchback, suffering from curvature of the spine, and the skeleton that was dug up had this same spinal deformity! An amazing and really interesting find!..

12 Most Useless Jobs In The World
Here are 12 Most Useless Jobs In the World. These professions are crazy! Watch our "8 Worst Jobs Your Would Never Do" https://youtu.be/XllPqUW9kcU Watch our "10 STRANGE THINGS PEOPLE Do For MONEY (2018)" https://youtu.be/qIZNGHVphqw 12. Restroom Attendant Do we really need someone standing in front of a cubicle in a public toilet making sure that everything’s working properly? Restroom attendants are supposed to be in charge of maintaining and cleaning the restrooms and ensuring that there’s always enough toilet paper, but is it really necessary for someone to be there at all times? Not only do restroom attendants make most people who actually use the restroom extremely uncomfortable, but they’re often underpaid and overworked. A lot of the time these people only earn tips and, depending on the type of establishment they work in, they have to put up with all kinds of rude behavior from drunken patrons. 11. Elevator Operator Once upon a time, elevator operator was a demanding profession that required many different skills. Old-fashioned operators of manual elevators had to learn how to maneuver a large lever that regulated the elevator's speed. This meant that elevator operators had to have a perfect sense of timing in order to always stop the elevator parallel to the floor. Modern day elevators don’t need operators, since everyone knows how to use them: you just press the button and off you go! However, elevator operators can still be seen in certain parts of United States. As of 2017, it was estimated that over 50 buildings in New York City had an elevator operator. Since most of these building are located in the affluent – and rather snobbish – neighborhood of Upper East Side, it’s pretty clear that elevator operators’ only purpose is to create a sense of luxury and prestige for the rich tenants who occupy these buildings. 10. Space Lawyer It sure sounds like a made-up job, but space lawyers are an actual thing and they’ve existed ever since the space race began with the launch of the Soviet Union's first satellite Sputnik I in 1957. Some might say that space lawyers are no longer needed in this day and age when rules and regulations of space travel are firmly established under the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. Others, however, claim that space lawyers will have their hands full in the near future when commercial space travel takes off. Some of the issues that space lawyers might have to deal in the future include asteroid mining, the buying and selling of extraterrestrial property, and legal implications of an encounter with extraterrestrial intelligence. While the title of space lawyer sounds cool, the reality is that there aren't any undergraduate degrees in space law, so at the end of the day space lawyers are - just regular lawyers 9. Cat Behavior Consultant Do you regularly talk with your cats and feel like they’re the only ones who really get you? Well, now you have the opportunity to turn your cat obsession into a paying job. Cat behavior consultants, also known as the cat whisperers, specialize in helping cat owners manage their disobedient purring pets. While some cat behavior consultants hold university degrees in veterinary medicine or psychology, often times they’re just people who are simply crazy about cats. Just take a look at Jackson Galaxy, the host of Animal Planet's hit show My Cat from Hell. Jackson started off as a rock musician who worked part-time in an animal shelter, and now he’s a bestselling author who makes money by saying things like “cats are in touch with what lies beyond the tangible”. 8. Chief Flavor Officer We’ve all heard of CEOs and CTOs, but do you know what a CFO is? Apparently CFO stands for Chief Flavor Officer and it’s a one-of-a-kind job currently held by none other than pop star Justin Timberlake. In January 2017, Justin joined New Jersey-based drink company Bai Brands as an investor and “chief flavor officer”. While the investor part makes sense, we’re not really sure what the duties of a chief flavor officer are. Bai Brands founder Ben Weiss recently said that Justin has been working closely with the rest of the team on several new projects, but we’re still waiting on somebody to answer the question: what does the chief flavor officer exactly do? 7. Pet Food Taster The thought of eating dog or cat food will make most people sick to their stomach, but believe it or not some people do it for a living.

16 Questions That Make Strangers Fall In Love!
16 Questions that Make Strangers Fall in Love Have you ever wished you could make your crush fall in love with you? Well, it turns out all you have to do is ask them the right questions! Let' s see 16 questions that make strangers fall in love! 16. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest? Starting off with some light questions, ask your crush about his or her dream dinner party. Not only is this question a good ice-breaker, it’s also a good opportunity to see what kind of people your crush likes to hang out with. You can also ask some follow up questions like why they chose the people they did to keep the conversation going. 15. Would you like to be famous? Since you’re already on the topic of famous people, why not ask your crush what they think about fame. Striking up a conversation about the good and bad sides of fame is an easy way to break the barrier and become more comfortable sharing opinions with each other. Don’t forget that people’s attitude toward fame can reveal a lot about their character, so this topic is a great way to learn more about your crush. 14. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? This question is a good way to find out if your crush likes to be in control of every situation or prefers to go with the flow. While it’s perfectly normal to rehearse what you’re going to say before a super important phone call like a job interview, rehearsing each time you call someone probably means you’re a little bit too preoccupied with how people will perceive you. So pay close attention to how your crush answers this question – it can speak volumes about their personality! 13. What would constitute a “perfect” day for you? What better way for two people to get to know each other than to daydream together about a ‘perfect’ day. If all goes well, this discussion can quickly turn into planning a perfect date. Talking about your ideal day will bring you closer, while also make you get out of your comfort zone and open up about your dreams and hopes for the future. 12. When did you last sing to yourself or to someone else? It’s a well-known fact that having the same taste in music as your partner is one of the surest signs that you two are compatible. Finding out the music that the other person likes can help you predict some of his or her personality characteristics and values. But instead of simply asking them what kind of music they listen to, you can make it fun and tell them to remember the last time they sang to themselves or to someone else. After that, you can segue into discussing musical genre and see if your conversational partner shares the same musical taste as you. 11. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want? This is an interesting debate topic that will spark a stimulating conversation between you and your partner and make you think really hard about what matters to you the most in life. Combine this discussion with sustained eye contact and you’ve got yourself a recipe for creating intimacy among strangers and who knows – you’ll maybe even end up falling in love by the time you finish debating. 10. Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die? Talking about death and dying doesn’t have to be morbid. Asking the other person if they have a secret hunch about how they will die is an excellent opportunity to find out more about each other’s deepest fears. Showing that you can be vulnerable and talk honestly about what scares you will instantly create a sense of connection between you and the other person. 9. Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common. Somewhere half through your conversation with a potential romantic partner, you can suggest that each of you name three things you have in common with one another. Again, this is a great way to check if the two of you are on the same page before you start talking about more personal matters. But before we move on to a little bit more personal questions that make strangers fall in love, take a quick break to subscribe to our channel! 8. For what in your life do you feel most grateful? Gratitude has many benefits – from improving your health and career to getting people to like you. Gratitude generates social capital and strengthens the connections between people.

Helike (Greece) Helike was an ancient Greek city located in northern Peloponnesos. In the winter of 373 BC, this ancient cultural and religious center was wiped off the face of the Earth by a tsunami triggered by a massive earthquake. The entire city was submerged under water and all its inhabitants perished in the catastrophe. The city’s ruins remained hidden from sight for centuries and archeologist were divided in their opinions about the exact location of Helike. Even legendary French explorer Jacques Cousteau tried to discover the ruins of Helike on multiple occasions during the 1960s and 70s but with no success. In 1988, Greek archaeologist Dora Katsonopoulou and Steven Soter from the American Museum of Natural History launched the Helike Project to locate the ruins of the lost city. Finally, in 2001 the city of Helike was discovered buried in an ancient lagoon near the seaside village of Rizomylos. Since then, there have been numerous excavations in the Helike delta and archeologists have made many significant finds dating from prehistoric time, including cobblestones, roof tiles, and pottery. 9. Dwarka (India) The underwater ancient city of Dwarka in northwestern India is considered one of the four sacred places of pilgrimage for the followers of Hindu religion. According to ancient Sanskrit legend, Hindu God Krishna founded Dwarka and made it his home after he defeated and killed his uncle Kansa. The Indian epic Mahabharata describes how Queen Gandhari became furious with Krishna for failing to prevent the death of her two sons in wxx and cursed that his city would be destroyed. Exactly seven days after Lord Krishna died at the age of 126, the golden city of Dwarka and its entire population disappeared under sea. This sprawling ancient city was discovered by chance in 2002 by a group of oceanographers from India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology who were conducting a survey of pollution. Marine archeologists subsequently recovered construction material, pottery, sections of walls, beads, sculptures, as well as human bones and teeth from the site. All of the artifacts were carbon dated and found to be nearly 9,500 years old, which means that the Dwarka civilization predates the ancient Sumerians, Egyptians, and Chinese by several thousand years. 8. Sigiriya (Sri Lanka) Sigiriya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in central Sri Lanka and known for the massive column of rock that’s nearly 200 meters high. According to the ancient Sri Lankan chronicles, this site was built by King Kasyapa I who ruled the country from 477 to 495 CE. The King built his palace on the top of the massive rock formation and decorated its sides with colorful watercolor paintings. After King Kasayapa I died, the royal palace was abandoned and used as a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century. After this period, no records can be found on Sigiriya and it wasn’t until 19th century that this lost city was rediscovered. In 1831, British army general Jonathan Forbes was returning on horseback from a trip to the North Central Province of Sri Lanka when he came the ruins of Sigiriya. Soon after, archaeologist rushed to investigate the ancient site and uncovered the ruins of an upper palace located on the flat top of the rock, a terrace with a gate in the shape of a lion, mirror walls covered in paintings, as well as lavish terraced gardens which are among the oldest landscaped gardens in the world. I know you can’t wait to see the rest of the cities on our list but before we move on, take a second to subscribe to our channel for more amazing content! 7. Vinland (Canada) Over half a millennium before Christopher Columbus set foot in the New World, Vikings were the first Europeans to reach the North American soil. They even set up a settlement named Vinland with the hopes of establishing trade between North America and Europe. The stories of Vinland began circulation in Europe at least a thousand years ago but it wasn’t until 1960 that the Viking settlement was discovered at L’Anse Aux Meadows, also known as the "Jellyfish Cove", in Newfoundland, Canada. The archaeological remains of Vinland were discovered by the Norwegian husband-wife team of explorers Helge Ingstad and Anne Stine Ingstad. Between 1961 and 1968..

10 Strange Things You Didn't Know About Planet Earth
these are 10 strange things that you didn’t know about planet Earth in 2018 Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ Watch our " Planet that can sustain human life" video here: https://youtu.be/0Y2J8Sn18HU Watch our "END OF THE WORLD: 10 DATES When Will Probably END (2018)" video here: https://youtu.be/OwLptjFc_-A Watch our "10 Scary Yet Beautiful Facts About Space & Us": https://youtu.be/lMHxn4zVCYo 10. Earth isn’t round Don’t worry – we’re not about to tell you that the Earth is flat, but did you know that our planet is not perfectly round either? The Earth is actually a type of a sphere called oblate spheroid. This means that the Earth is squashed at the poles and bulges at the equator. Because of these irregularities, the distance from the Earth's center to sea level is around 21 kilometers (or 13 miles) greater at the equator than at the poles. While this difference cannot be seen with a naked eye, it can be easily calculated using artificial satellite techniques. The sphere-like shape of our planet is the result of the Earth’s rotation. As the Earth spins on its axis, it produces a small equatorial bulge and slightly flattened poles due to centrifugal force. This is why a vertical cross-section through the Earth along the polar axis has the shape of an ellipse, whereas a horizontal cross-section through the Earth along the equator has the shape of a circle. 9. Gravity isn’t the same everywhere on Earth If the Earth was perfectly round or spherical and had uniform mass density, the gravitational field would be the same at all points on its surface. But since Earth is a flattened spheroid, gravity isn’t equally distributed and its strength varies from place to place. Due to centrifugal forces produced by the planet's rotation, gravity is at its weakest at the equator and the strongest at higher altitudes further from the Earth's center. This means that you would weigh 0.5% more at the poles than at the equator, while your weight would decrease by about 0.29% on the top of Mount Everest. The gravity at the top of Mount Everest is actually 99.72% as strong as the gravity at sea level, so if something weighed 1000 pounds at sea level, it would weigh only 997.2 pounds at the top of Mount Everest. So if you ever feel bad about your weight after devouring a whole pizza by yourself, just climb Mount Everest – and don’t forget to bring the scales with you! 8. Earth's magnetic poles will soon flip The switching of the poles sure sounds like a Doomsday scenario, but it’s actually a perfectly normal occurrence that has already happened many times in Earth’s history. Over the last 20 million years, the north and south magnetic poles have been reversing every 200,000 to 300,000 years. Since the last swap took place about 780,000 years ago, this means the next one is fast approaching. According to the latest satellite data from the European Space Agency, the magnetic field is already showing signs of shifting, but scientists still can’t say exactly when the next pole reversal will take place. When it does happen, though, it could have serious consequences for life on Earth. The Earth’s magnetic field is a giant shield that protects our planet from harmful cosmic rays, and each time the poles switch places, this shield becomes weaker. At the moment, the dangerous radiation from space is still not hitting the surface of the Earth, but this could all change after the poles shift. Once the magnetic field gets substantially weaker and stays that way for an extended period of time, the Earth will be exposed to higher levels of radiation, which could eventually wipe out our entire power grid and lead to an increase in diseases like cancer.

Earth used to have two Moons I know what you’re thinking: not another conspiracy theory about Earth! But believe it or not, our planet most likely used to have two Moons that collided and merged into one astronomical body nearly 4.5 billion years ago. The two-moon hypothesis, published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature in 2011, provides an explanation for the noticeable differences between the Moon's two hemispheres. The hemisphere facing the Earth is covered by low, lava-filled plains, whereas the “dark side of the Moon” is made up of rugged, rocky highlands. Those highlands, according to the two-moon hypothesis, are the remains of the smaller, short-lived satellite that collided with the Moon as we now know it. Since the two moons collided at subsonic speeds, there was no explosion and the merging was almost fluid. The two-moon hypothesis is yet to be experimentally proven, but upcoming lunar missions will probably help ..

10 most Expensive CAT BREEDS in the world
cats are amazing! They are lovely to cuddle up to after a long day, and they can sometimes, pretty much look after themselves a lot of the time! But these breeds might take a little more work, here are 10 of the most expensive cat breeds! Subscribe for more! ?https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1? Stay updated ? https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/? 10 British Shorthair This amazing looking kitty starts off our list. With a characteristic chunky body and a wide, broad face. The British Shorthair is an amazing looking cat, and with a relatively calm temperament and a playful nature, it’s no wonder they are so sought after. Supposedly the British Shorthair is one of the most ancient breeds of cats known, most likely dating all the way back to the 1st century AD. And it is thought to have been brought to Great Britain from Egypt by the Romans surprisingly! This compact, cute little kitty can run you around $1000. But cat breeders are hoping that you won’t be able to say no to that little face! 9 American Curl This breed of kitty was created as the result of a deformation, originating in Lakewood, California. Does the name confuse you? Well most people will probably get why it’s called that after taking one look at the cat. It earns name through its unusual ears, that curl upwards towards the back of the skull. Surprisingly enough, these kitties are actually born with straight ears, and they curl within the first two days of the animals life. They enjoy spending time with their owners and and require very little grooming. It is still a relatively uncommon breed, but you will spot them in the US and around Europe mostly. This cat’s curls will run you anywhere from $900-1300 depending on the individual cat. That’s a lot to pay, but at the end of the day, you’re paying for a pretty rare kitty! 8 American Wirehair Another one that originates from the old US of A. This cat originated in upstate New York and was actually ranked one of the most rare breed of cats by the Cat Fanciers’ Association. The deformation of these cats occurred among a litter of five barn cats in 1966. The cat that started the deformation cost its owner $50, which is a fair amount away from how much one of those cats will cost you now. Getting one of these cats now will probably run you up about $1000 to 1200. To get an idea of what the texture of the cat’s fur is like, it is similar wiry fur to that of a terrier. A strange texture for a cat, but it makes this kitty extra special. 7 Ragdoll The Ragdoll breed of cat is a distinct type with blue eyes and distinct colourpoint coat. The coat of this cat is so lovely that it requires constant grooming to ensure that it is silky and smooth. A lot of people refer to this cat as a ‘dog-like cat’ due to its behaviour; it is very comfortable with being handled and fairly aggressive to other animals around it. But overall, it is known as an affectionate, docile and calm kitty. It originated in the USA, and a pair of breeding cats were exported to the UK. The origin of this cat breeds name is actually due to its tendency to go limp when picked up. This particular breed can set you back around $1300. 6 Siberian Forest Cat This is one magical looking cat, with an amazingly interesting name. Supposedly it is believed to be ancestrally linked to most long haired cats of today. The kitty was mentioned for the first time in 1871 in a book by Harrison Weir, this breed of cat was first seen in the United States around 1990, is known to be a pretty athletic jumping breed, and is a strong and powerfully built type of cat, that usually ranges in size from medium to large. This particular variety of cat can be seen in drawings and paintings from Russia, dating back hundreds of years. These kitties are pricey, ranging from $1300-1600! Pretty steep! 5 Russian Blue Very, very similar to British shorthair breeds, this cat has almost hypnotic good looks, and its dark bluish coat is often counterpointed by bright, vibrant eyes of yellow or green hue. The cat obviously originated from Russia, and was first spotted outside of Russia in Crystal Palace in England. The breed developed mostly following the Second World War. Russian Blues have a life expectancy of around 10-20 years, some living up to around 25 years. These cats can cost as little as $500 from the right breeder, but they can also cost up to $3000! Check the person who is selling the Russian Blue before you buy! 4 Peterbald This is one of those breeds of cat that are actually born hairless. The breed came about in 1994 in St Petersburgthe result of an experimental mating of a Don Hairless (also known as Don Sphynx, Donskoy or Donsky) male named Afinogen Myth and an Oriental Shorthair female World Champion named Radma von Jagerhov, by Russian felinologist Olga S. Mironova. They come in most colours and also a range of markings too. Obviously due to their hairle..

10 Strangest  PHOBIAS and FEARS  in the World
From being afraid of your toaster, to a fear your own knees. We’re counting down the top 10 most ridiculous fears and phobias. Stay tuned until the number 1 ! Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ Watch our “The Most PAINFUL THINGS Humans Can Experience” https://youtu.be/dxXvHgRsAtc 10 Somniphobia When you get a bit older you start to really look forward to that time where you can get home, crawl into bed upstairs and sleep. It recharges your batteries and you feel like everything is all done for the day. Well people with somniphobia may not have the same experience, as these people are genuinely terrified of falling asleep. We see this fear a lot in children afraid to go to bed because of bad dreams or whatever reason. But this fear is a bit more irrational. Some people claim that they are not afraid of bad dreams or anything like that, but are actually spooked by that moment where you cross over into unconsciousness. A lot of people link it to being afraid of the general unknown, or a fear of a loss of control. But nevertheless, it can seem pretty strange to someone who doesn’t have somniphobia! Chaetophobia – fear of loose hair Please do not take anyone with Chaetophobia to the barbers, I don’t think they’d make it out alive. As chaetophobia is the fear of hair. One girl from the United Kingdom complained that she could not even touch her own hair without feeling violently sick. And that seeing loose hair, when she got her haircut, was even worse. The fear also extends to hairy animals as well. Doctors connect this particular fear with a general fear of lacking hygiene, and that maybe the person with Chaetophobia has had an unpleasant experience involving loose hair. Therefore when the person sees hair, be it on their head or someone elses, they connect it to that traumatic event, and the panic quickly ensues. Aibohphobia – fear of palindromes Rise to vote sir, Racecar, Are we not drawn onward, we few, drawn onward to new era? Notice something about all of these phrases, if you switch them backwards, they actually say exactly the same thing as they did forwards. This is what is known as a palindrome, and there are many others. They can be pretty astounding, but to some, they can be absolutely terrifying! Specifically for those who have Aibohphobia, which is a genuine fear of palindromes. You want to know the worst thing? Aibophobia is itself, a palindrome. Dendraphobia – fear of wood, forests and trees Many of us can relate to being scared of being lost in the woods or alone in a dark, dark forest. This would be due to what might be lurking outside of our eyesight, in the shadows. Fear of forests is known as hylophobia and that can be quite common. But dendrophobia on the other hand, dendrophobia is a fear of trees. Not dark woods or lonely forests, but of ordinary, everyday trees. Doctors believe it to originate mostly from traumatic experiences, but also through hereditary as well. People with this fear would not be able to visit a forest, as the site of so many trees would probably trigger a number of panicky responses including increasing heartbeat and rapid breathing. If you have this fear it’s probably best to live in the city, okay? Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia – fear of long words This one, is definitely hard enough to say. But with such a ridiculously long name, what could this possibly be a phobia of? Well the answers been staring you in the face for a while. It’s a fear of long words. This one just doesn’t make sense, it can’t be a physical fear as words can’t attack or harm you by themselves. Those who suffer with this must have had an unusually traumatic spelling bee experience and never really got over it. This one is very hard to understand, but that doesn’t mean it’s not real. And just before we leave this one, just for anyone with this particular phobia … ANTIDISESTABLISHMENTARIANISM. Oikophobia – fear of household appliances We live in a massively functional world. 100 years ago we wouldn’t have been able to dream of all the technological leaps and bounds we’ve made as a race in our innovation. For instance, just walk into your kitchen, there you’ll find a whole range of useful gadgets and appliances that serve to make our life simpler and more efficient. But there are some that these little helpers are an absolute nightmare. And that is for people with Oikophobia, or a fear of household appliances. It actually isn’t just consigned to household appliances, it’s actually categorised as a general fear of your home surroundings, such as bathtubs, household chemicals and other objects that might appear in your home.

Air Force Academy Chapel (Colorado, United States) Now this is not your ordinary church! Built in mid-century modern style, the US Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel features seventeen aluminum, glass, and steel spires, each composed of 100 tetrahedrons. The Cadet Chapel houses four worship areas: Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, and Buddhist chapel, as well as an outside worship area for followers of Wicca, Paganism and Druidism. The US Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, designed by legendary architect Walter Netsch, is not only an iconic example of modern architecture but also an official US National Historic Landmark and the most visited man-made tourist attraction in Colorado. 14. The Gherkin Building (London, UK) You might recognize our next building from popular films such as Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, A Good Year, Basic Instinct 2, and Match Point. 30 St Mary Axe, popularly known as the Gherkin Building, is one of the most recognizable London landmarks. Located in the UK capital's financial district, this eco-friendly commercial skyscraper was designed by Norman Foster, British architect known for his sleek, futuristic office buildings. The exterior of the Gherkin is covered with 7,429 panes of glass, and at 180 meters tall, this skyscraper is three times taller than Niagara Falls! 13. Ryugyong Hotel (Pyongyang, North Korea) North Korea is usually in the news for all the wrong reasons, but not many people are aware that this country has some of the most impressive architecture in the world. One such example is the Ryugyong Hotel in the nation’s capital Pyongyang. Though still under construction, this incredible pyramid-shaped building is 330 meters tall, has 105 stories, 7,665 guest rooms, and 5 revolving restaurants. Construction of the Ryugyong Hotel began in 1987 and according to the latest reports it will soon be ready for business. What do you think: is the Ryugyong worth a trip to North Korea? 12. Fuji Television Network (Tokyo, Japan) Tokyo has no shortage of awe-inspiring architecture – from soaring skyscrapers to historic temples. One particularly impressive example is the headquarters of the Fuji Television Network located on Odaiba - a massive man-made island in Tokyo Bay. This unique-looking structure is 123.45 meters high and has a total floor space of 142,800 square meters. The building is best known for the huge spherical observation platform which offers one of the most spectacular views of Tokyo skyline. 11. The National Library (Minsk, Belarus) Looking at this enormous futuristic structure, you’d think it was a UFO from outer space and not a library. The National Library of Belarus, located in the country’s capital of Minsk, is built in the shape of a rhombicuboctahedron – a geometric shape with eight triangular and eighteen square faces. The outside surface is covered with LED glass panels that shine 24 hours a day, giving the building an appearance of a giant diamond in the middle of the city. The library has 22 floors and enough seats for more than 2,000 readers. It’s also the only building in Minsk with a public observation deck. 10. Cubic Houses (Rotterdam, Netherlands) These curious cubic houses in Rotterdam are a true testament to the ingeniousness and creativity of their creator, late Dutch architect Piet Blom. These funny-looking structures are based on Blom’s concept of "living as an urban roof”, created with the purpose of optimizing the space in the most efficient way. The houses are tilted at a 45 degree angle and rest upon a hexagon-shaped pylon. Each individual house is supposed to represent a tree, which makes this neighborhood of cubic houses look like a huge yellow forest. 9. WonderWorks (United States) WonderWorks is a science-themed entertainment center with locations in Orlando, Florida Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Panama City Beach, Florida, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Syracuse, New York. Each of the five buildings is designed to look like a regular building that was picked up and hurled around by a tornado and then dropped on the ground upside down. The wacky designed of the WonderWorks buildings matches the interactive exhibits that take place in them, including hurricane and earthquake rides, virtual sports, rock climbing, astronaut training challenge, and plenty more. 8. Habitat 67 (Montreal, Canada) Originally conceived as the master's thesis of Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie, Habitat 67 is a housing complex in Montreal, Canada, known for its spectacular design. r
