4 Strange Fun Facts about Human Behavior

Human behavior is one of the most prominent things that distinguish humans from other creatures. It makes humans special. The feeling of happiness, sadness, remorse and empathy can’t be felt by other living organisms. However, there is a pattern in the way the humans behave. The recent researches have shown some strange, fun and interesting facts about human behavior which are listed below.

#1. Men’s sweat: Stink or a Seductive Perfume?

Sweating is one of the natural phenomenons of the human body. The studies showed that men sweat more than the women. Most of the men remain conscious if their sweat is stinky and they don’t prefer to meet a woman during that time.

The researchers at Rockefeller University have conducted an experiment in 2007 in which they observed the response of various women with regard to men’s sweat. They got different kind of responses from the women. Some women felt disgusted by men’s sweat, others were attracted to the aroma. There were also a group of women who remained unaffected with the odor.

The research further revealed that it is not a psychological effect. It is a genetic and physical issue. They studied the DNAs of various women and found that the difference in the response of the women were due to the presence of OR7D4 gene. The women who had 2 copies of OR7D4 gene were feeling disgusting with the men’s sweat. The women with just one copy were remaining unaffected by the smell. However, the women without any OR7D4 gene were feeling attracted by the aroma of men’s sweat. So, for sweaty guys, there is still a 33.33% chance to get a girlfriend.

#2. Girls Talk: Bad for Depression

People always suggest that whenever you are sad or feeling depressed, it is good to talk about their feelings to people around them. However, the recent studies showed that the group talk or girl talk will lead to depression in pre-teen and teenage girls. A psychologist named Amanda Rose observed almost 813 girls during their girl talk session. They discussed various topics from boys to crazy gossips. This chat will surely strengthen the bond between girls and help them understand each other. However, it affects their psychology in a negative way. Rose observed that the girls showed the signs of elevated anxiety and depression. Some girls also showed even eating disorders.

#3. Tattoo Remorse:

In the last decade or so, the trend of getting permanent tattoo increased a lot. Most of the times, people get tattoos just for excitement without giving it a proper thought. According to a media study, almost 17% feel tattoo remorse after getting a permanent tattoo. Think how it would feel if you get a permanent tattoo of your girlfriend’s name and then you end up with a break up. You may get into a new relationship later. Now, how would your new girlfriend feel if she finds the tattoo of your old girlfriend’s name?

However, there are also laser treatments to remove these permanent tattoos. The traditional inks are more difficult to disperse and they require multiple laser treatment sessions. Although, new inks are developed in a way in which it can be removed much easier. Still, these laser treatments are pretty costly. That’s why it is much better to think twice before getting a permanent tattoo.

#4. Cellphone Lies:

A Cornell University researcher conducts a study about the conversations on cellphones. They found an astonishing fact that 37% of the cellular conversations were based on lies. Their study concluded that people are more truthful in face to face conversation than cell phone talks. So, next time, be careful when your boyfriend/girlfriend tells you that he/she is going to their friend’s place to study.

6 ways the Star trek is lying to us

One of the reasons why sci-fi movies are so popular is definitely because of some special effects. Star trek is one of the series that many other looked up to, and took their ideas as base for their stories. Almost every sci-fi movie takes place in space and has at least one important thing that has nothing to do with real life physics. If the sci-fi movies would follow the rules that physics has set for us, they would be boring. You ask why? Here are the answers…

#1 There are no explosions in space

p1

Although this statement may not be generally true, it is true when it comes to the spaceship explosions we are used to. Just like on Earth, explosion in space can happen if there is enough oxygen. The ship can explode from the inside, but there would be no fire once it reaches space. In reality there would be only one bright flash and broken parts of the ship. Every Star trek battle scene features some kind of explosion, either the exploding torpedo or part of the hull after being hit by a phaser.

#2 There is no sound in space

Universe is one big vacuum, and there can be no sound in vacuum. Sound is a wave that travels through space by vibrating the molecules on its way. There are no free molecules in universe so the sound can´t be transferred. Forget about all that fancy sounds of explosions, flybys, engine sounds, phasers… there can be none of them.

#3 There is no aerodynamics in space

p2

There were some people that claimed that Federation ships are designed in the way in which they are to be fast, and that the Borg cube is spending too much energy because of its flat surface. As I said before, the universe is a vacuum, and there are no particles that could slow the ship down on its voyage between the stars.

#4 No planet is the same

p3

Most of the M class (suitable for human life) planets look like Earth. The reason for that is that the show is filmed on Earth. Because of the limited budget, you can see familiar plants, animals, even geographical features from our planet that should be hundreds of light years away. The alien planets also always have the same gravity as earth, the same temperature and the same clouds…

5# No alien is the same

p4

Most of the aliens in Star trek look the same with exception of just one or two subtle differences (like spots, ears or wrinkles). Even the ones that are obviously not humans (Klingons, Cardasians, Ferengis) have two legs, two hands, one head… you see where I am going… But, the Star trek creators are as smart as they are budget-limited. They created one episode in Star Trek: The next generation series where it is all explained. There was an ancient species (possibly even the first one ever) that spread its genetic material trough the galaxies and made us all like them. It is an ingenious explanation… isn´t it?

6# The space is really, really big

p5

In Star trek: Deep space nine; there are many great battle scenes. The tactics that are used are the same ones used on Earth – which makes no sense at all. If there is a big fleet of starships in front of you, you don´t need to try going through them, you can always go above or underneath. The same is true for avoiding asteroid belts. They are just as the name says, in the shape of a belt. It is easy to avoid them just like the enemy fleet. But of course, where is the fun in that?

6 body parts we have but actually don´t need

Human body has about two dozen parts that you don´t really need. All of them are left from the early times of the evolution and had a vital role in our survival. Now, we managed to evolve and have no use of them anymore. Eventually, they will disappear completely and are already in the process of vanishing. Charles Darwin called them vestigial organs and used them as one of the evidences for the evolution theory.

Let´s see what are some of the most popular and useless parts for us.

#1 An appendix – once useful, now dangerous

An appendix once had a big role in the digestion process. It was probable designed to help digest raw plants because the stomach wasn´t good in that. Now it is believed that it hasn´t got any real or vital purpose. Some claim that it has a new function and helps us fight diseases. We don’t really need it and many people had their surgically removed after becoming infected.

#2 Do tonsils have any purpose except causing pain?

Tonsils are the most removed human organ. They are used to fight diseases that attack the throat. Once they manage to defeat the infection, they get red and start to swell. It happens often and because of that, it was normal for people to remove them in their childhood. Today, we have antibiotics that help repress the symptoms and usually don´t remove them as a precaution.

#3 A very small tail

p1

The tail bone is a proof that we used to have a tail. As we started to walk on two feet, the use for it disappeared and all that was left is a little bone. Although it helps us a bit while sitting and standing, the main use of it, and the most of what it was, is now gone.

#4 Wisdom tooth

p2

People usually have four of the wisdom teeth, but some have none. The evolution started to remove wisdom teeth from our genetic code because we no longer have any use from them. There are many people who got them removed as they can create severe problems. They were useful once when our jaw was bigger and we had to eat a lot of plants to survive. Today, they are mostly just in the way.

#5 The use of goose bumps

When you get cold or scared you usually get goose bumps. There is no purpose for them because we don´t have our fur anymore. They were used to create a ticker layer of hair to keep the heat from escaping our body. It is not sure why we don´t have fur anymore, but still have goose bumps. It is safe to say that after some more time we will lose that useless ability too.

#6 Moving my ears

p3

There are some people that are capable of moving their ears up, using only their ear muscles. Some believe it is a skill that can be learned, and they are right. We all have the muscles needed to perform that funny and useless trick, but we can´t do it without some practice. The muscles were once used to move the ears in different directions without moving our head. It is something that comes very useful in a hunt. Since we don´t hunt our pray to survive anymore, we are more and more losing the ability to move them at all.

Who would win the movie-monster fight?

There are a lot of movie monster out there. During the years many legends and stories featuring some sort of a supernatural being found its way to the big screen. They are all unique in some way and again similar in the other. The question is which monster is the strongest of all. What if all classic movie monsters would meet in the same place? Who would win? Who would get the best movie monster title? Let´s find out.

Firstly, we are going to analyze every classic monster separately before we clash them with each other.

The zombies

Probable the best known movie monsters are the zombies. According to IMDB there are 640 movies that have zombies as their main villains. It would be nearly impossible or just very complicated, to analyze all of them, so I will stick to the basics. The zombies are mostly the dead that managed to come back to life. They are slow, stupid, and easily killed but their advantage is in the numbers. There are always more zombies than humans because all that is needed to become one of them is a bite or a scratch.

The vampires

p2

The most popular movie monsters are the vampires. There are more than three times less vampire movies than there are zombies, but the first managed to attract much more people to the theaters. When it comes to the looks, we can´t really say if the vampires should be considered ugly or attractive. The first movies showed them as ugly, blood sucking monster, but then came Interview with the vampire, The vampire diaries, True blood and the one and only Twilight. But, the important thing is not how they look but what they can do. Just like the zombies, the vampires are also dead. They don´t look like that because they feed on the human or animal blood to keep them fresh. They are as smart as humans, but much stronger. Some of them can even fly, read minds, move objects with their thoughts… To kill them you should use a wooden stake and aim for their heart.

The Ghosts

p4

The next on the list are the ghosts. There are one hundred more vampire movies, which puts the ghost at the third place of this list. Like the other two, they are also dead. Most of them are not solid, but are capable of moving the objects or touching people. They can pass through walls, fly, disappear… There is no real way of killing them, since they are not reanimated in any way. They just died and decided to stick around.

The werewolves

 

p3

With six times less movies than zombies, the werewolves are the last movie monsters I will analyze before we put them against each other. Almost any decent, modern vampire movie, features some kind of a werewolf as an enemy to the vampire. They are not dead for a change, and are actually normal humans. They just turn to wolfs or bear-like creatures on a full moon. Silver is good for killing them, but mostly any regular weapon will kill them at some point.

That is it. Now we have some general idea about who is who and what are their abilities. Now let´s put them against each other.

The fight

Let´s start with the werewolves. They never managed to defeat the vampires, wouldn´t have a chance against ghost and let´s be honest; they wouldn´t be able to destroy the zombies, without turning into one among them. It may seem as a fair fight because both sides are not capable of using any weapons, only their hands and teeth. The werewolves may be stronger and faster, but as I said, all of them would become infected. And there is that one big flaw with our human-wolfs; they are wolfs just for a day or two, most of the time they are just regular humans.

The next are the vampires. So, they were always capable of defeating or enslaving the werewolves. It is not that surprising because of the only one day being a wolf rule. The werewolf bite is deadly to vampires so they have some change of a fair fight, but at the end, vampires would definitely win… as always. The vampires would have no chance against the ghosts. They would probable manage to avoid the zombies at the beginning and easily kill some of them. But at the end there would be no more humans since they would lose the war against the zombies. The vampires would run out of food and ultimately be destroyed.

The zombies would have no problem infecting all the werewolves and killing the food source for the vampires. The problem would be the ghosts. Just imagine the situation: the ghost can touch and kill the zombies and the zombies can´t infect the ghosts.

And finally the ghosts. They are already dead, and can´t be eliminated by any known way. Although The ghost busters may not agree with me on that.

So, that is it. The fight is over. The ghosts won against every single enemy. The only ones that are able to stop them are humans, and the humans are almost extinct because of the zombies. The humans are the ultimate losers, after them the werewolves, then the zombies and finally the ghosts are the winners. Some may believe that, because of their intelligence, the humans would survive long enough for ghost to calm down and start living their normal life again. Of course, the zombie virus should be gone by then for the humans to rebuild the civilization.

As far as the ghosts are concerned, there is no point in discussing who the strongest movie monster is. It would be interesting to think about the world without the ghost and figure out a way to beat the zombies.

Maybe it could be done by joining forces with some other monsters that live on a movie screen.
