Share a random bit of knowledge you learned recently.

First- the word ‘Contrite” means sincerely apologetic. I did not know what this meant before Oprah used it describing Lance Armstrong lol.

Second, Synthol is an injectable oil some bodybuilders and / or slackers inject under their skin to make their muscles look massive. It must be used commonly or else it will be washed away to other parts of the body ( sounds highly unhealthy ) Also it adds absolutely no strength and you end up looking like a complete idiot, its hilarious. Good Synthol use for a few great laughs at the people with no back bone to put in the hard work themselves.

Can I share 2?!

When cats are angry, their pupils get large, there ears go back, and they thump their tail, all the while giving you ‘the stare’.

Stick insects are amazing! they can ‘play dead’ and just fall to the ground when they may be in danger, They can also lose a leg on purpose if a predator grabs it, They sway in the wind to look more like branches, and the females can procreate little clones of themselves without a male being involved.

Don’t know if this is ‘knowledge’ so much as a recent ‘enlightenment':

Just because people talk like they know everything, and seem legit. Doesn’t mean you have to follow blindly…or that they actually do know what they are talking about.

I found this really interesting when I read about it yesterday, I had no idea:

In the period from 1961 to 1972 there were hundreds of plane hijackings in the United Stated. An average of one attempt a week. In 1969, there were 82 attempts alone on US Airplanes.

This was known as the golden age of hijacking and the vast majority were for ransom purposes, rather than terrorist activity. The hijackers were mostly American citizens who would attempt to extract a sum of money from the airliners, then divert the plane to a safe haven such as Cuba. Hence the expression “Take me to Cuba!”.

The most famous hijacking from this time is the case of DB Cooper who parachuted from a commercial plane midair and was never seen again. The hijackings virtually ceased after the introduction of metal detectors at airports.

@limitedmoon, Can you explain that differently?

@cosmiclemonade, looove this [: It sums up a lot of what i’ve been pondering on recently.

Here’s mine: We have an undetectable level of consciousness that science cannot yet explain; some examples are:

the phenomenons that happen when people have a split corpus collosum (which i’m not going to go into detail about here, but look up videos! it’s crazy);

“alien hands,” where someone has a hand that does not always operate under their control but will do things like throw stuff, steal, and even try to kill the owner/others.

My favourite though is “blindsight;” if there is a blind person sitting at a table with an apple and you ask them what’s on it, of course they’ll have no clue, but if you ask them to grab it, they’ll be able to automatically reach out and grab it,first try. it’s not as exciting as the others i guess, but i love what it implies.

The slow loris, that cute little furry thing with the huge eyes, is poisonous. It has glands on it’s arm that secrete a substance that is only activated by their own saliva. So they lick their arm when they want to activate their toxic bite. They can also apply a coat of it to their babies for protection.

@trek79 Went out of my way to look him up to see who he is. I never saw Blade Runner but not I may be tempted to at some point in the near future.

Random bit- Jeffery Lurie the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles has been the owner for longer than 20 years now. The team started at a value probably somewhere around $100 million I would guess but is now worth around $ 1 Billion. His job is to simply hire someone to run the company. In a sense, he is hiring someone to do his own job.

On the same note as the last two posts i have come to realize this also but i usually just cut off those friendships. One genuine friend is worth more than any amount of shitty fake ones.

@irvzilla, Yes, I type his name into google and 5 of my personal best movies, in my top 50 anyway, come up. The 5th Element is actually my favourite, BladeRunner is one of my favs, I love Tango and Cash and 48 Hours, then there is Enemy Mine which is brilliant.
But he is very cult, kind of like Danny Trejo, Bruce Campbell or Tom Savini.

sonder.

n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

:D
