Given the fact that we’re mere humans, we often just see things in our everyday lives as they are — food, a bug, an office supply.
But what happens when talented photographers take an extremely up close and personal look at those very objects?
They become pretty much unrecognizable.
They say that knowledge is power...
What happens if you’re stuck out in the wild with nothing more than a lemon, copper clips, zinc nails, wire, and steel wool? You can actually start a fire!
How? By squeezing about 1 Volt out of a lemon battery.
How do you get a lemon battery?
Imagine being Mark Andre, an environmental worker marking trees and stumbling across something that wasn’t there the last time he’d been in the area — a cabin.
And not just the usual ramshackle, trash-strewn heap of debris you might expect.
No, this waas a proper house featuring a concrete block foundation, peaked roof, small porch with wooden awning, multiple windows, and walls of plywood covered on the outside with brown tarps.
We’re a culture that doesn’t like to part with our phones. That’s not really a source of debate. But there’s a good reason to say goodbye and godspeed to the device when nature calls.
With all that idle time on your hands, it's hard NOT to bring your phone with you.
But you need to be strong. Because what’s in the bathroom will be on your phone. And you can probably guess that the bathroom is a pretty nasty place.
If you’re looking for the impact of evolution on humans, you don’t need to travel to a museum. As you can see in the images and video below, your own body is host to an array of functions and parts that were once useful for our ancestors, but today serve more as oddities than anything else. Take a look.
We all know that feeling. You lay improperly on your arm or leg for an extended period of time and, all of a sudden, “pins and needles.” But do you know what the sensation actually is? Or what exactly causes it?
If you don’t, the slides and video below will give you a quick education on what that weird feeling is all about.
The actual medical name for this phenomenon is "paesthesia"
Paresthesia happens most often when you’re in a position that puts pressure on the nerves for an extended period of time. Your blood supply gets cut off due to the pressure, and your body alerts you that something’s gone wrong with that weird feeling we all know.
