AC Was Invented Because of Mosquitoes
AC Was Invented Because of Mosquitoes
Day ago
Believe it or not, but you have to thank mosquitoes for the invention of air conditioning, or, at least, its forefather! No one loves them in the 21st century, but back in the 19th, those guys were a real nightmare. Things were especially bad in swampy areas of Florida. A local physician and inventor Dr. John Gorrie was trying to find a way to drain the swamps, and while he was at it, he got this revolutionary idea in 1841. He realized the problem was literally in the air. So cooling the air could fix it!

The mechanism was powered by a horse. This is how the concept of air conditioning was born! - A few decades later, engineer Willis Carrier designed the first electrical air conditioning unit with cooling coils and air filters. - Air conditioning made its first mass public appearance at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. The 1,000 people in the auditorium definitely loved the idea of comfort cooling. - It was good enough for public buildings, but still too large and expensive for homes. It took a couple more decades for engineers to design something perfect for private houses. - Today's air conditioners work on the principles of Carrier's invention but are, of course, more energy efficient, much quieter, have way better diagnostics and controls, electronic sensors and are made of better materials. - The outdoor unit consists of a compressor, condenser coil and a fan. Another vital player in this process is the refrigerant. - The heat from the air inside your home mixes with the refrigerant and moves through the compressor and to the outdoor coil. - It's important to squeeze the gas tightly because the higher the pressure, the higher the temperature. - There can be an indoor unit in every room of your house, or the ones you need to keep cool, or one unit in the closet or the basement, or somewhere inside your house. - The hot air from the room is sucked in through the return vents. Then, the air meets the refrigerant. At this stage, the hot air loses its heat and moisture. - The expansion valve helps it blow off some steam and lose some extra pressure. - Then the refrigerant goes from liquid to gas and is ready to move over the ice cold evaporator coils. - Each and every detail in the air conditioner is super important, and even if one of them goes off, the whole process will stop.

Why Space Is Getting So Crowded
Why Space Is Getting So Crowded
Day ago
The first human-made object to orbit the Earth was Sputnik 1, which blasted off on October 4th, 1957. In the decades since, we’ve launched thousands of additional satellites. The modern world would surely grind to a halt without them. But now, there are so many up there that we might literally be running out of space. It turns out there are only so many places you can put a satellite and have it stay where you want it to be. If a satellite is too low, it will simply fall from the sky, too high, and it will gradually drift into deep space. With so many in orbit, keeping them all from slamming into each other is a task that gets more difficult every passing year!

SUMMARY: - Global Positioning System (or GPS) satellites and others that need to remain over a specific part of the Earth’s surface have to be launched at very specific altitudes. - The further from a stable orbit the satellite is, the more effort has to be put into keeping it there. - On February 10th, an abandoned Russian satellite called Kosmos 2251 plowed into the side of an American satellite as they passed over northern Siberia. The impact shredded both spacecrafts and sent a cloud of debris hurtling through space at incredible speed. - Broken or abandoned satellites like Kosmos 2251 are a huge threat to the ones that are still functioning. - A piece of space garbage just four inches across is enough to rip most satellites apart. - As of May 2019, there were around 23,000 objects of that size or larger. - The absolute worst-case scenario is what scientists call the Kessler Effect. Thought of in 1978 by NASA scientist Donald J. Kessler, the Kessler effect is basically the domino effect in space. - Works of fiction like to present the Kessler Effect in almost apocalyptic terms. - Right now, there are a few objects making scientists nervous. One notable example is the European Space Agency’s enormous and abandoned Envisat satellite. - The threat of satellite collisions is very real and will only get worse as we launch more and more objects into orbit. - Modern satellites usually won’t get the green light until there’s a plan for how to get rid of them. - Sometimes this requires pushing it out so far into space that the odds of a crash drop to basically nothing. - Another option is to lower the satellite so that it gets pulled in by the Earth's gravity. - Another suggested solution would be to place unwanted satellites so that they will be yanked out of orbit by the Sun or Moon.

24 Proofs Your Body Is Really Special
24 Proofs Your Body Is Really Special
Day ago
During the Renaissance, European scientists and artists strongly believed the human body was the most wondrous and sacred thing in the whole world. And to this day, we only find more and more evidence that they were completely right. Do you know, for example, why pinkie toe lost all of its functionality? Or how sneezing makes you happy? Or that your eyes are placed in such a way they should actually see your nose? You simply don’t notice it! Well, interested? Then why not check out these cool facts about your body? Other videos you might like: WHAT HAPPENS INSIDE YOUR BODY? || 360 VR usa-video.net/kw9EJbezlK4-video.html&; A Journey Inside Your Body usa-video.net/3pjkQcQBTtc-video.html 15 Body Parts That Will Disappear One Day usa-video.net/A1sgVb3YBAI-video.html&; TIMESTAMPS: The strongest muscle 0:19 Your brain is the best video editor 0:41 Your body is the whole world 1:00 You’re unique in more than one way 1:24 Half of you is your brain 2:05 Humans shed skin too 2:37 Sugar bones 3:29 Sweat has no smell 3:56 Pinkie toe is on its way to becoming history 4:22 People are still partly predators 5:25 Sneezing makes you happy 5:57 Smart fingers 6:58 Yawning is contagious for a reason 7:22 You can’t tickle yourself 7:46 Where is your nose? 8:14 Your nose warms up the air 8:44 You live in the past all the time 9:04 #humanbody #amazingfacts #brightside SUMMARY: - Your eyes are constantly taking separate pictures and moving all the time to make a full image of your surroundings. - From 2 to 5 pounds of all your body weight doesn’t even belong to you but to microscopic life that lives inside us all. In the human mouth alone more bacteria live than people on Earth. - Brain structure highly depends on conditions in which it develops and grows, and therefore we all have something individual to us even on a biological level. - The brain takes only 2% of your whole-body weight, but it’s such a powerhouse that it requires 20% of the energy you consume. - Bones in baby fists are not fully formed until they turn 10. That’s because in infancy it’s very important for fists to be elastic, so a lot of bone tissue is replaced by cartilage in this period. - It’s not the sweat that launches you to the bathroom after a good workout. It’s microscopic bacteria on your skin that interact with it. - Pinkie toe lost all of its functionality a while ago - precisely when humankind started wearing shoes - Hairs and nails grow faster if they get more nutrition with blood. Another fact - our bodies aren’t symmetric at all. - When you scream or sneeze, your brain tries to protect you from the loud noise. It automatically turns down the volume in your head! - Another way to make yourself happy without eating too much is to sneeze. Another happy-hormone endorphin is released with each ‘A-choo!’ you make. - Human kidneys have 2 million little filters total, and are capable of filtering all the blood in the human body several times per day. - Yawning is a social reflex that appeared as a way for social animals to signal that it’s time to take a rest. Yawning also helps to ventilate the lungs and make your body relax overall. - Your tongue has the same kind of sensitive cells that provide you information about the smell of food you eat. - It takes 13 milliseconds for your eyes to perceive an image and around 50 milliseconds for your ears to hear something. So you can’t always be up to date - it’s just impossible!

13 Habits That Probably Spoil Your Life
13 Habits That Probably Spoil Your Life
2 days ago
Nobody will argue that people tend to divide all habits into good and bad. But what if I tell you that some so-called "good" habits aren't as useful as people like to think? And that drinking too much water can lead to poisoning, and brushing your teeth can damage them? In fact, everything you thought you knew is wrong! For example, sleeping as much as you feel like isn't that great! Yes, it's good to listen to your body but if you start sleeping more than 9 hours a day, you may have depression, put on weight, and have health problems! So, here's the list of habits you might want to reconsider! Other videos you might like: I Tried Rich People's Habits, See How My Life Changed usa-video.net/5EnvxbCkiNI-video.html& 8 Habits That Are Actually Good For You usa-video.net/dOmCf2iPz1g-video.html& 10 Gross Habits You'd Better Quit ASAP usa-video.net/qtFDChAsSQ8-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Never hold in a sneeze 0:31 Don't try to be a superhero 1:09 Drinking too much liquid is unhealthy 1:40 Don't do what you don't want to 2:16 Don't brush your teeth right after a meal 2:50 Sleeping as much as you feel like isn't that great 3:22 There is time when you need to relax 3:52 A hot shower does more harm than good 4:24 Living in a constant money-saving mode 5:00 Washing your face right after a workout 5:37 Analyze what’s important for your future life 6:15 Laze around in bed in the morning 6:50 Eat fat! 7:18 #habits #goodhabits #brightside SUMMARY: - Damaged blood vessels in the eyes, burst eardrums, and even cracked ribs - and that's not even the whole list of injuries people had after trying to hold in a powerful sneeze! - Keeping your word is good! But life is unpredictable, circumstances change, and one day, you might find it hard or impossible to keep your promise. - I have to break it to you: drinking too much liquid is actually unhealthy! The main problem is your kidneys: they can process no more than 34 oz of liquid per hour. - "Always saying yes" is a thing today. By doing so, you become more open to the world and don't waste opportunities. But at the same time, by always saying "yes," you can do yourself a disservice! - Don't brush your teeth right after a meal, especially if you were eating something acidic. It will damage your tooth enamel and lead to its erosion! - Seven or eight hours is enough for your body to "restart." And if you wake up at the same time on weekdays and at the weekend, it will be easier for you to stick to your sleeping routine. - You should realize that there is time for being efficient and useful. And there is time when you need to relax and do nothing. - A hot shower does more harm than good to your skin! The hotter it is, the more it opens the pores. It results in your skin losing moisture alarmingly fast. - Another bad habit that pretends to be good is washing your face right after a workout. Experts recommend washing your face not after, but before a workout! - The problem with this constant reflection is that it prevents you from enjoying the present. "Living in the moment" isn't just a pretty phrase. - Researchers from Brunel University in the UK have discovered that when you have intense physical activity early in the morning, your immune system becomes weaker. - Omega-3 fatty acids, found in nuts, oily fish, seafood, and some seeds, is crucial for your skin condition and the functioning of your heart and brain!

What If There Is Always One Season on Earth
What If There Is Always One Season on Earth
3 days ago
For many of us, the seasons tell us a lot - like what holiday is coming up or what delicious seasonal food there might be at the local grocery store. But what if there were no seasons, or only one season all year round? Well, humans probably wouldn’t have met up with other humans much, and settlements would be scattered. If humans couldn’t put their brains together, there are a lot of inventions that we wouldn’t have today. We may never have learned to use tools. We may never have basic technology! Other videos you might like: What If the Sun Never Went Down Again usa-video.net/nmSH93wXbFU-video.html& What If Megalodon Sharks Didn't Go Extinct? usa-video.net/Xh6pVbaEJTw-video.html& What If Just One Planet Disappeared from the Solar System usa-video.net/IFAvLx6kZUM-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: The Earth wouldn’t be tilted 0:19 There’d be a lack of food 0:56 Humans probably wouldn’t have progressed 1:21 We’d be way more susceptible to germs 1:56 Agricultural Problems 2:26 We Need Winter! 2:57 We would have to re-learn basic survival 3:27 The weather would be predictable 3:58 Unchanging Landscape 4:20 The Equinoxes would be off 4:46 Psychological Effects 5:22 There’d be huge effects on the ecosystem 6:00 There’d be disruptions in sleep patterns 6:24 We could see changes in brain function 7:00 Changes in skin and hair 7:31 It could be bad for your heart 8:07 #whatif #winter #brightside SUMMARY: - Everyone would probably move toward the locations near the Equator where it’d be warmest. This would cause over-population, the spread of diseases, and lack of resources. - Animals, too, would move to those warm regions by the equator and would likely get over-hunted. - If everyone had to live all together near the Equator, we’d be vulnerable to a lot of disease; and not just from each other, but from insects too. - Rain can erode the soil, which pushes all the nutrients down below the root level, making that farmland at least partially infertile. - Many crops that we rely on, like wheat, oats and barley, potatoes, and corn grow better in cooler climates that have a winter season. - We’d have to do some adapting and learn how to successfully farm in these new conditions; that includes growing crops and raising livestock. - Every day would look and feel pretty much the same! - Changes in light would normally have a huge biological effect on plants and animals, such as telling them when it’s time to reproduce or hibernate. - Science has proven that sunlight has a positive effect on our mood, and gives us natural Vitamin D. - There may be some plants and animals that wouldn’t survive if there were no seasons. - If a place experiences a change in the amount of sunlight it gets, those that live there may see malfunctions in their biological clocks. - A small European study found that our attention and focusing skills are better during the summertime, and much worse during winter. - If you’d happen to be stuck in one of the wintery regions, your skin and hair would likely dry out. - Thinner blood vessels make your heart work harder than it normally would to pump blood through your body. This will cause an increase in your heart rate.

Who Would Win: Human vs Neanderthal
Who Would Win: Human vs Neanderthal
4 days ago
Are modern humans the pinnacle of the food chain, the strongest and most intelligent creatures ever to walk this Earth? Maybe now, but once upon a time, we had some real competition: Neanderthals. Wait, like, cave people? Weren’t Neanderthals our ancestors? Nope! We came from the Cro-Magnon, which were early modern humans. Neanderthals were a separate branch of humans. Their DNA is even different from ours, so we can safely say that Neanderthals were a completely different species.

ENTRESSANGLE/E. DAYNES/Science Photo Library/EAST NEWS, www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/66215202/i/43/t/127 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - The average Neanderthal was about 5’4” and weighed around 160 pounds. Neanderthals might’ve been smaller than modern humans, but they made up for it in stoutness. - But modern humans have more complex and efficient brains. - On his thick muscular legs, a Neanderthal could easily trek 30 miles just to find some dinner. - Modern humans might be smarter, but Neanderthals would win any arm-wrestling match. They were anywhere from 5-20% stronger than modern humans. - Neanderthals had an average lifespan of only about 40 years. They grew up a lot faster than we do - for Neanderthals, you were an adult at 12! - It's possible that Neanderthals could’ve been ruined by a very bad diet consisting of only meat. These tough guys hunted big game - they weren’t too interested in fruits, vegetables, or nuts. - But when severe frosts came, the population of deer, mammoths, bison, and other goodies began to decline significantly. - Due to this sharp global cooling, Neanderthals couldn't cross a lot of distances, so they were forced to coexist with the Cro-Magnons who migrated from Africa. - Neanderthals might’ve been physically superior to those early modern humans, but the Cro-Magnons were taller, more agile, and, most importantly, more cunning. - Studies of Neanderthal skulls showed that they had a much larger brain than Cro-Magnon. - The reason for the Neanderthals extinction could be... Neanderthals themselves. Every male risked his life daily fighting with bears, rhinos, mammoths and other ancient beasts. - Because of this hardcore lifestyle, the number of men likely decreased, so the birthrate fell.

15 Cool Things You Didn't Know About Your Body
15 Cool Things You Didn't Know About Your Body
4 days ago
Do you worry when your body does weird things like sweat when you’re nervous, you forget an awesome dream, or get carsick on a long ride? It’s puzzling, eh? Have you ever wondered why we wake up before the alarm clock? Or how the weather gives you a headache? Our brain is also a tricky thing. For example, it perceives going to school or work as a threat and tries to protect us from this stress by keeping us in bed. That's why it's hard to wake up on weekdays and so easy to wake up on the weekend. Interested? So let's hop into our submarine of discovery and dive deep into why these strange tricks of our bodies happen. Other videos you might like: A Journey Inside Your Body usa-video.net/3pjkQcQBTtc-video.html 30 Facts You Never Knew About Your Body usa-video.net/hwzhqySOvkE-video.html& 15 Body Parts That Will Disappear One Day usa-video.net/A1sgVb3YBAI-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why do we bite our lips? 💋 Why do we forget dreams? 0:58 Why do we wake up before the alarm clock? 1:42 ⏰ We can’t stand being tickled, yet why do we react to it with laughter? 2:12 Why do we sweat when we get nervous? 2:56 How does the weather give you a headache? 3:34 Why do we feel carsickness? 4:13 😖 Why does skin darken in the sun, yet hair gets lighter? 4:54 Why do we hear ringing in the ears? 5:45 Ever stood up too fast and gotten dizzy and lightheaded? 6:23 Why does crying cause that weird lump in the throat? 6:42 Is it true that our heart stops during a sneeze? 7:17 Why do we get lazy after a big meal? 7:52 🌭 Why is it hard to wake up on weekdays? 8:20 Why do we get cramps when we run? 8:47 #humanbody #humanbrain #brightside SUMMARY: - Our brain gives our body an “order” to bite our lips so that we think less about problems and calm down. - Dreams are chaotic, full of symbolism and strange images, so the brain thinks: (Brain: “This guy already has enough on his plate in real life - he doesn’t that dream consuming his thoughts.”) - It’s just that waking up to an alarm clock is a big shock for the body. To avoid this unnecessary stress, the brain releases a protein that’s responsible for wakefulness. - The most ticklish areas happen to cover vital organs and arteries, so nature has made them very sensitive. - If you were an early human trying to get out of a headlock with a rival, then your wet skin would be slippery. Sweaty palms also cling to tree branches better. - When the weather changes, the air pressure changes. Your blood vessels and nerves feel this difference in pressure and react - they expand, get smaller, or spasm. - In comparison to human history, cars appeared not so long ago, so the brain hasn't completely adapted. - With more and more pigment being produced, the skin gets darker. With hair, things are a little different. It does have small reserves of melanin, but it can’t produce it like your skin can. - When you quickly go from a lying position to standing, the blood in your body drops to your feet and legs, thanks-a-lot gravity! - Back before there was science to explain these things, people believed that during a sneeze, the body let go of too much air and that it could stop your heart forever. - If you want to wake up ready to take on the day, try thinking about what a great day tomorrow will be before you go to bed. - If you’ve ever experienced a running cramp, you know that it can be super uncomfortable. The good news is that it is totally normal.

13 Animals With the Strongest Bite
13 Animals With the Strongest Bite
4 days ago
What is the toothiest critter that ever lived on our planet? For example, the strength of human jaws is about 160 pounds per square inch. It’s good to break some tough cookie or a pistachio shell, which is enough for survival in our harsh modern world. But what about more serious contenders? A mastiff is among the mightiest friends humans have, and it can easily snap a thick branch in two. A lion can show 650 psi - it’s four times stronger than the human’s bite! But did you know that the hyena’s jaw force is higher than that of both lion’s and tiger’s? Well, if hyenas were not cowardly, they would probably be among the most feared animals of the savannah!

It opens its jaws and clenches them over the device… 550 psi! - The next contestant is the king of the jungle himself - meet the mighty lion! Ooooh, it shows 650 psi - it’s four times stronger than the human’s bite! - Bengal tiger leaps forward and sinks its huge fangs into the measuring device, which shows… 1,050 psi! - But when it comes to forest predators, no creature can compete with the grizzly bear. It shows 1,200 psi! - Although gorillas are gentle, making one of them angry certainly shouldn’t be on your agenda. - A hippopotamus is an unpredictable animal. It may look sweet, but it’s considered one of the most dangerous species of Africa. - Jaguars easily crush bones with their long, sharp teeth, so it’s no wonder that they outbite all the rest of the feline family. - Saltwater crocodiles patiently wait for the prey in the waters of the river and are very quick to attack. No wonder it’s the biggest land predator and reptile in the world! - A great white shark ferociously sinks its many crooked teeth into the device, showing 4,000 psi! Its bite force has never been directly measured, but the estimates show these astounding figures. - Scientists have estimated that the maximum force of T-Rex' bite could reach the astonishing 12,000 psi! - The frightful Deinosuchus dwelled the oceans millions of years ago and hunted dinosaurs that were careless enough to wander into the crocs’ territory. At 23,000 psi, nothing could ever beat this monster!

What to Do If Your Phone Is Tapped
What to Do If Your Phone Is Tapped
5 days ago
Phones make our life easier, more connected and interesting. But they can bring a lot of trouble too. And among the main ones is interference with our private life. I'm talking about phone tapping. How do they do it, and most importantly, what should you do to protect your phone? But to better know how to protect your phone from tapping, you must first find out how they can do it.

It can easily enter your phone through MMS messages, mobile Internet, Bluetooth, or WiFi. - There are special expensive devices to listen to phones. Typically, such a system consists of computers and a few telephones with special modifications. - There are special listening stations that can be controlled by a professional operator with special education and extensive experience. - So that no one can read and listen to your messages, instant messengers encrypt your dialogues. To “crack” them, you need a special decryption code. - The most commonplace and easiest way to put your phone at risk is to leave it somewhere without a password or give it to someone “to play" with. - The easiest and most banal way - regularly change passwords on your gadgets to protect your phone. - An attacker won't be able to enter your profile if they know the password, but don't have an SMS code. - Don't leave Bluetooth on if you're not using it. Hackers can connect and you won’t even notice. - Don't connect to unknown networks! And the safest thing is to use a personal Wi-Fi modem. - There are also apps that fully protect your phone. They block connections to dubious networks and communication channels, tell you if a strange activity has appeared on your phone, and encrypt your conversations. - Most phones use the GSM communication protocol for calling. Unfortunately, this standard can be cracked by someone who has the necessary skills. - You can always change it to a more secure connection, though, for example, to CDMA. - Don't connect the phone to the computer if you're not sure that it is clear from viruses. - If you suspect that your phone is being tapped, then just try not to discuss important information over the phone. Do it in person.

What If You Had No Fingerprints
What If You Had No Fingerprints
7 days ago
What role do fingerprints play in our lives? Yes, detective movies give a clear answer to this question. Also, scientists have only recently found out that fingerprints serve a person as the main mechanism of touch. Without them, it'd be difficult for you to read information and interact with whatever you're touching or holding in your hands. Patterns on the fingers play a very important role in the fine motor skills of the hands. Thanks to them, we can easily separate thin pages of paper from each other, type on a keyboard, get cards and money from our wallets, play the piano, guitar, etc. But besides that, could fingerprints determine your character?

Remember that when you're sitting at a campfire in nature, you're constantly stretching out your hands in its direction. Also in cold weather, you feel your hands freeze faster than the rest of your body. - Every print of every person is unique. The probability that you'll meet someone with the same finger pattern as yours is 1 in 64 million. Even for twins with the same DNA, the prints vary. - In Ancient Babylon, about 2000 BCE, people left prints on clay tablets as a signature. Then, in the 5-7 centuries, they were used in China for the same purpose. - Scientists have recorded rare cases when a person was born with absolutely smooth fingers, void of prints. Such cases in medicine are considered a manifestation of a rare genetic tendency. - In addition to fingerprints, people also have unique prints on their tongue and feet. And with cats and dogs, nose prints are unique. - The patterns on our fingers can also be an additional tool for reading information. An excellent testimony of this is massage therapists. - Each fingerprint is unique, but nevertheless, there are only three main types of patterns for them: an arch, loops, and a whorl. - The first type is the arch. People with these prints are very responsible, calm and balanced. They don't get mad easily. - The next type is the loop. People with this pattern on their fingers put self-expression and self-development in first place, even if it doesn't bring material benefits. - And the last type is the whorl. The predominance of whorls speaks of well-developed logical and analytical thinking. People with this pattern are better at learning new languages and math.

Titanic VS Modern Cruise Ships
Titanic VS Modern Cruise Ships
7 days ago
The Titanic's only voyage ended in tragedy on April fifteenth, 1912. At the time of the disaster, it was the largest and most advanced ship ever constructed. Designed to carry more than 2,400 passengers and almost 900 crewmembers, the Titanic had certainly earned its name. But with over a century of advancement, how are today’s cruise ships different from those of Titanic’s day? Sure, we all know they’re now required to carry more lifeboats, but that isn’t exactly what makes them the life of the party.

The ship’s nine decks rose to an impressive 175 ft. - The SS Imperator would steal its crown a year later when it undertook his maiden voyage in 1913. - As of 2019, the largest cruise ship in the world is the Symphony of the Seas, which is operated by Royal Caribbean. - 1184 ft across and 215 ft wide, her eighteen decks are double the Titanic’s height and provide spacious accommodations for well over five thousand passengers. - Think of it as the difference between a city bus and a tour bus. You board a cruise ship to have fun and an ocean liner when you need to get somewhere. - First-class passengers would enjoy a saltwater pool, spa, gymnasium, and multiple restaurants decorated in the styles of French cafés and swanky New York hotels. - Second-class rooms were smaller and not as glamorous, but luxuriously furnished. - Third Class, also known as steerage, wasn't quite so luxurious, although the accommodations were still nicer than on many ships of the same era. - Modern cruise ships don’t really have classes in the way as the Titanic or even modern airlines. - Even the least expensive room on a cruise ship is still going to be about the level of a modest hotel room. - In addition to TVs and in-room slides, there are many other amenities found on modern cruise ships that wouldn’t have been available in the early twentieth century. - Shipbuilding had to come a long way before these immense mobile vacation spots became a reality. - The Titanic was constructed in Belfast harbor on a special slipway built specifically to accommodate its unprecedented bulk. - The hull of the Titanic was made up of thousands of these overlapping plates with the lower hull consisting of two layers. - Titanic's primary safety feature was the sixteen watertight compartments making up the lower decks. - Ships of today are still made from steel, but advancements in smelting and metallurgy have resulted in hulls stronger and less brittle than were possible a hundred years ago. - Speaking of the engines, modern cruise ships run primarily on either diesel, natural gas, or some combination of the two. - The most unusual aspect of modern cruise construction is that they're not built hull to funnel as a single construction. - The largest cruise ships and oil tankers are assembled in just six locations worldwide, the most prolific being the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea.

What If We Weren't Alone on the Planet
What If We Weren't Alone on the Planet
7 days ago
As far as we know today, humanity is the only intelligent species there is. And while astronomers keep searching for extraterrestrials, it got me thinking: what if some other sentient lifeform were right here on Earth? What would they be and what would it mean for us? Think about it: even if we find some other civilization among the stars, how prepared would we be to meet another intelligent being that isn’t human? It could become a problem for us. But if we were used to sharing our home with other non-human civilizations, we’d be much more equipped to engage in negotiations with aliens. Other videos you might like: A Physicist Has Explained Why We've Never Seen Aliens usa-video.net/rjvfX4vFO_I-video.html& The Alien Signals Mystery Might Have Been Solved usa-video.net/J7eD8T1pJYU-video.html& A New Bermuda Triangle Theory Explains Its Mystery usa-video.net/6SWMb4Oh5jY-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Did you know that humans lived with Neanderthals❓ 1:21 Our closest rivals in the way of intelligence 3:16 What if we ended up with space refugees? 6:21 And what about... artificial Intelligence? 7:54 #aliens #dolphins #brightside SUMMARY: - Several scenarios could lead us to share our planet with another sentient species. They could’ve evolved for millions of years alongside us. They might come here from another place somewhere among the stars. - Neanderthals looked very much like us and were also ancestors of primates. Their brains were even bigger than ours, and they used tools and cooked food. - There’s evidence in some remains found in the territory of today’s Europe that humans lived with Neanderthals. - If Neanderthals lived with us and never went extinct, we probably wouldn’t even notice them now. - Our prime candidates are not primate at all. Some social monkey-like creatures, like chimpanzees or gorillas, are capable of using simple tools and communicating with each other. - Dolphins, though - they’re our closest rivals in the way of intelligence. - It’s already been proved that dolphins and some toothed whales have a complex system of signals, which even include calling each other by names. Their intelligence is quite developed, but absolutely alien to ours. - Considering all that, a hypothetical world where we share our home planet with an intelligent ocean species is looking pretty good. - Another possibility, yet quite outlandish is that we, after all, will meet extraterrestrial intelligent life. - These aliens will probably be unfathomably different from us, but they’ll certainly be social enough to show us more advanced science and engineering than ours. - Their science might allow them to use something we have in abundance as a source of energy or food. - We’re already becoming an excellent training ground for developing stable relationships with a vastly different kind of intelligence. - The challenge with AI is that it has no bodily limits. It doesn’t need us as much as we would probably need it. - Yet, the AI that we have now is a good way to prepare ourselves and make the best of it in every possible way.

How a Combination Lock Actually Works
How a Combination Lock Actually Works
7 days ago
They’re just about everywhere - from lockers and luggage to high-security safes. The oldest one was made around 2000 BCE. You most likely use one every day, but have you ever wondered how it works inside? Let's unlock the secrets of a combination lock! A regular combination lock consists of twenty components, internal and external. Because it's meant to last forever without repairs or replacements, almost all of them are usually made of stainless steel which is coated to withstand corrosion. Getting inside the lock isn't easy. But let's see how it works! Other videos you might like: Put Your Keys In Foil, It'll Save Your Car From Theft usa-video.net/JJkdykwrWfs-video.html& 12 Ways to Protect Your Home While You’re Away usa-video.net/OJ3evO5eXEM-video.html 4 Mystery Doors That Should Never Be Opened usa-video.net/xfYnUaLpdc0-video.html TIMESTAMPS: What the lock consists of 0:43 What each of the details does 1:38 How it all works with a combination 4:39 Popular locking mechanisms: - Padlock 5:56 - Cam lock 6:27 - Deadbolt lock 6:46 - Barrel bolt 7:20 - Chain lock 7:42 - Electronic lock 8:05 #howitworks #lock #brightside SUMMARY: - The inner case of the lock is home to all of the internal components, none of which are longer than two inches. This is the lever. It sits on a special support post right here. - The internal disc spring keeps the combination discs under tension so that you can dial the combination. - Additionally, inside the lock case are the shackle collar and a latch that fits into the shackle notch. - The main idea here is that the shackle has two possible positions: when it's down, the whole thing is locked. - Another important player of team lock is the latch on the lever. It has a spring that's hiding inside the lever. - The shackle is free to go, and the lever springs back to where it started. - One important rule of the lock is: the shackle will only come out if the lever can rotate. - Cam one is molded to the dial and only turns when the dial turns. - Each cam has an indentation, and a tooth on at least one side. - Technically, there can be more than 3 cams: four, five, or even ten. It would make the lock a real fortress. - Padlocks are easily the most basic type of door locks. Like a combination lock, a padlock isn't attached to any surface but locks into itself. - Cam lock is another super simple lock you wouldn't want to use for a safe. The basic element in it is a cam that turns when you insert a key to lock and unlock the mechanism. - Deadbolt locks are popular for external doors because they’re reliable, easy to find, and good for their price. The locking mechanism has a cylinder that goes directly through the door with a keyhole on the outside. - A barrel bolt, or a sliding bolt, is only used on the inside of the door. It's definitely not the safest of locks, but installing two of them on one door gives at least some protection. - A chain lock is much like a barrel lock. The main part of it is on the door, and the catch is on the door frame. - You don’t need a physical key to unlock an electronic lock, but a code you have to type on a keypad or a special card.

What If the Sun Was Twice Smaller
What If the Sun Was Twice Smaller
8 days ago
You've probably never thought how much the way you live on Earth depends on the size of the Sun! The Sun is a yellow dwarf: a perfect sphere of scorching plasma, generating a magnetic field 24/7. Despite being called a dwarf, its mass is 330,000 times bigger than that of the Earth! And the diameter of this giant is more than 864,000 miles! But what if it became a red dwarf? First of all, red dwarf stars are much colder than yellow dwarfs. So the climate all over the planet would be getting colder and colder, and it would become impossible to live too close to the North and the South poles. And quite soon, half of the planet would turn into an icy desert...

The climate all over the planet was getting colder and colder, and astronomers' forecasts were getting grimmer. - Quite soon, half of the planet turned into an icy desert. People had huge problems with food and other resources. - Every next day was darker than the previous one. Dimmer sun meant that plants didn't have enough light to convert it into energy. - Since the Sun was becoming smaller, its gravitational pull on our planet was getting weaker. - Finally, our beautiful Earth turned into a lifeless chunk of rock covered with a thick layer of ice. - With the Sun turned into a red dwarf, the Solar System we had known disappeared. - Saturn and especially Jupiter used to partially protect smaller planets, including Earth, from asteroids! - Plus, thanks to gas giants, small space objects that still managed to sneak past them got ejected out of the Solar System faster. - And talking about the planet humans inhabit these days... it's Mercury. This planet is the closest to the Sun and the smallest in the Solar System. - The ice-covered polar regions of the planet are in permanent darkness. It makes these areas incredibly cold. - Don't think that our new home was overjoyed to see us. We had tons of different, often unpredictable problems and obstacles. - Mercury still doesn't have any breathable atmosphere. That's why I can't take a relaxed stroll outside with my pooch. - We live in towns covered with protective domes and go outside only after putting on a special suit. - We also have to be very careful with the Sun's radiation. Yes, the star isn't as big or as bright as before, but it still emits enough radiation to end your life should you step outside without special protection.

Why Public Toilets Don't Have Lids
Why Public Toilets Don't Have Lids
8 days ago
Ugh, standing in line for the bathroom. Waiting your turn to a cacophony of flushes, stalls slamming open and closed, hand dryers blowing, and…other sounds. And why are some public bathrooms so stinky? Well, one reason is that the toilets in most public bathrooms don’t have lids, so the aroma lets loose. Could it be that city planners want the smell to chase you away, thereby speeding up the line? Is that why public toilets don’t have lids? Other videos you might like: Close One Eye When You Go to the Toilet at Night usa-video.net/fCxXn73JVwc-video.html& Are Public Toilets As Safe As You Think? usa-video.net/o1LHIlhR6zo-video.html& 13 Hygiene Things We Learnt to Do Wrong usa-video.net/WMuAcGV8TJw-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: What to do if you drop your phone... down there 0:47 The best reason not to have a lid on a public toilet 🚽 2:59 Keep an eye on your pet! 🐱 3:34 What ancient Rome’s public bathrooms were like 4:24 Exploding toilets 💥 4:52 #publictoilet #hygiene #brightside SUMMARY: - Lids keep you from getting sprayed when you flush! They also prevent stuff in your pockets, like your keys, from falling in. - At home, things like toothbrushes and medication are way better off bouncing against a lid than falling down the hole. Luckily, in public bathrooms there’s less of a chance of this, as the sink is usually in a separate location. - Lids can be icky and we spread germs by touching icky things and then absent-mindedly touching something else, like our food or our face. - Another reason we have lids on toilets is to protect our pets. hat goes double for public bathrooms, which battle those germs we talked about with powerful chemicals. - Ancient Rome’s public bathrooms were simply long wooden benches with several holes that patrons would sit over. - Sometimes the toilets exploded! These explosions happened because the things that dropped into the toilets contained a mixture of hydrogen and sulfide: making a boom-boom! - Romans weren’t the first to install public toilets-that honor belongs to the ancient city of Crete. Flourishing and flushing as far back as 3000 BCE, Cretans developed ground floor latrines that flushed by means of an overhead reservoir. - After Crete, flush toilets disappeared until 1851, when an exhibition in London charged patrons a penny for the honor. - Lids cost a lot to replace, and they need to be replaced a lot! Believe it or not, people steal them! - And when the lids aren’t stolen, they break! Hinges are a weak spot on any toilet seat and, if the bathroom is busy, hinges get a lot of use-some of it rough. - Every city has a budget, and spending a lot of tax-payer money on tougher toilet seats is a hard sell. It’s easier to just remove the lids altogether.

You know how when you watch your first superhero movie or play your first action game, you start wishing really hard to get superpowers? Well, that’s what happened to me. The problem is, my wish came true. One day, I was playing a video game and got the 6th sense - eagle vision. It was awesome! I could see in the dark, spot people who were hiding from me, and see details from miles away. Before I went to bed, I started thinking about what it would be like in real life...

What happened to my eyes?! 😱 5:45 How I used my superpower 6:45 #whatif #superpower #brightside SUMMARY: - I’m woken up by the sound of my alarm. I reach for my glasses on my dresser, but right before I put them on, I notice something strange. Everything is already clear; I don’t need them. - If we know one thing about eagles, it’s that they have the best vision. - I won’t have to study for my exams. I can just pin my book on a tree, look outside the window, and copy all the answers. I’ll never have to study again. - This cool trick is possible because eagles have something in their retina called the Fovea. - The fovea of an eagle’s eye has 1,500 cells per square inch - 4 times more than I had before. - My best friend is the first one to notice I’m not wearing glasses. So, I fess up about my new super vision. But he doesn’t believe me at first. - I need to go to the eye doctor and have my eyes checked. Before, my vision was terrible; it was 20/100. - A person with good vision would only have to stand 20 feet away. That’s why you hear it called “20/20 vision”. - With eagle vision I can see the details of any object from far away without even squinting. - My brother barged in my room without knocking. He screamed: “I can’t find Milo”, (our cat). - I know I have to put my superpowers to good use. I remember that eagles can find any living thing that’s hiding. - Two miles away, near the freeway, I see Milo chasing a little fox. I immediately take off running towards him. I manage to grab him just before he runs into traffic. - How will my parents react when they get home? I guess I’ll have to tell them to look on the Bright Side. - I decide to go to bed and talk to everyone about my vision the next day. But when I wake up, everything’s blurry. - Hopefully next time I play a game I’ll get another superpower from it.

Think of the END of the song. Your brain will interpret this as, “Okay, the song is over!” and will reset itself. - Do a lot of nodding while you’re making the point that you want someone to agree with. - If you feel like someone is watching you, make yourself yawn. Make sure they SEE you do it. After your yawn, look and see if they’re yawning too. - Someone is probably lying to you if they leave out what are called sensory details. Honest people will include explanations of how something sounded, smelled, looked, or felt like, and these are often the most important parts of the story. - While people laugh, they tend to look at who they feel they have the closest bond with! - Whatever your friend or date just said, paraphrase it and say it back to them. It will tell them that you’ve really been listening to them and paying attention! - We all have moments we’d rather not remember…so all you have to do is replace it with something positive that you DO want to remember ASAP! - If you approach a group of chatting co-workers or friends and they see you coming, pay attention to their feet. If you’re welcome to join the circle, their torso AND feet will turn toward you. - When you meet someone for the first time, try to remember their name AND use it in the conversation that follows. - If you’re talking and the other person is smiling at you, check for crinkles around their eyes. If they’re being fake, there won’t be any. - Chewing gum makes you look engaged, and it tricks your brain into feeling comfortable. - It’s been said that people remember the beginning and end of something-a date, an interview, a meeting-the clearest.

Why the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans Don't Mix
Why the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans Don't Mix
8 days ago
When you look at the seas and oceans on the map you might think that they just flow into each other. It seems like there’s only one big ocean, and people just gave different names to its parts. Well, you’ll be amazed at how vivid the borders between them are! The border between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans is like a line between 2 worlds. It looks as if the two oceans meet at an invisible wall which does not let them flow into each other and mix their waters. Why on Earth does it happen? We know for sure there is no invisible wall inside, and water is water. So what could interfere with its mixing?

One can see by their color that they are far from being the same. - Haloclines - borders between waters with different salinity - are the most spectacular, and this is what we see when the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans meet. - Haloclines appear when water in one ocean or sea is at least 5 times saltier than in the other. - Another important difference between the two oceans' water is the strength of molecules' connection, or surface tensile strength. - Maybe they could gradually start mixing with time, but as the flows in them have opposite directions, they just don’t have time to do this. - There are also thermoclines - borders between water of different temperatures, like the warm water of Gulf Stream and much colder North Atlantic Ocean. - The North and Baltic Seas meet near the Danish city of Skagen. The water in them does not mix because of different density. - The Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet at the Strait of Gibraltar and have a different density and salinity, so their water does not mix too. - The Uruguay River and its afflux meet in Misiones province in Argentina. One of them is cleaned to be used in agriculture, and the other gets almost red because of loam during rainy seasons. - Mosel and Rhein meet in Koblenz, Germany. Rheine has lighter water and Mosel - darker. - Alaknanda and Bhagirathi Rivers meet in India. Alaknanda is dark and Bhagirathi is light. - The Jialing and Yangtze Rivers meet in Chongqing, China. The Jialing is clean and the Yangtze is brown. - The water of the Chuya has an unusual cloudy white color here and looks dense and thick. Katun is clean and turquoise. Flowing into each other they form a single two-colored flow that does not mix for some time. - The Rhone and Arve rivers flow into each other in Geneva, Switzerland. The Rhone is a pure river that flows out of the lake of Geneva, the Arve is cloudy as it gets its water from glaciers of the Chamonix valley.

I Was Running Everyday for a Month, See What Happened to My Body
I Was Running Everyday for a Month, See What Happened to My Body
8 days ago
It all started when a friend invited me to do a 5k with him - that’s about 3 miles. Doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a lot when you’re in your late twenties and haven’t run since gym class back in school. Not to mention the barely-there energy and weight gain that adulthood seemed to hit me with. Anyway, I had a month to get ready. How did I do it? The short answer is, baby steps! Of course, you should watch what you eat, stay hydrated, and train slowly but surely. After getting myself a new pair of running shoes, my journey began. I kept a daily log of my progress along the way. What about you? Are you ready to lace up your shoes and start running?

I guess that’s just gonna be a regular thing for the next month. - My trainer suggested cycling as cross-training, so I went on a 3-mile bike ride. - My energy levels are through the roof! I no longer crave afternoon naps. - I weighed myself today, and I’m down 5 pounds! I’m convinced jogging is the fastest way to lose weight. - I jogged for 10 solid minutes today and didn’t struggle at all! I’m getting there! - My trainer told me to be extra careful to stay hydrated. He said to divide my body weight in half, and then drink an ounce per pound. - I guess exercise improves your complexion because it boosts blood circulation. - My trainer showed me how to use a tennis ball to massage any problem areas. I do it to the bottoms of my feet, too. - Listening to music while jogging helps the time go a lot faster. - Lots of bananas. I’m told the potassium will help balance the electrolytes I lose on longer runs. - I think my training program must’ve been just right because the run was relatively easy and enjoyable. I can’t wait to sign up for my next race!

What If Someone Broke a Plane Window
What If Someone Broke a Plane Window
9 days ago
Hey guys! Do you like airplanes? Have you ever thought what would happen if a plane window you're sitting next to suddenly broke? Because even though it's almost unheard of, it HAS happened before! So, would you get instantly sucked out of the airplane? And could you be arrested for “breaking and exiting”? That's exactly what almost happened to the pilot of British Airways Flight 5390 in 1990. When the plane was already in the sky, at the altitude of about 17,000 ft, a badly-fitted section of the windshield blew off. Everything happened so fast that the unsuspecting captain Tim Lancaster didn't have time to react and was partially pulled out of the cockpit! Other videos you might like: What Happens When a Bird Flies Into a Plane Engine usa-video.net/CozYL-_ttEc-video.html& A Plane Disappeared And Landed 37 Years Later usa-video.net/0AoJddnJ6SA-video.html& A Plane That Landed with Extremely Speed Ever usa-video.net/gzb-fgRaRaY-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Pilots who were pulled out of the plane 0:32 Why a broken window creates such powerful suction 2:15 What problem it can cause 3:22 The truth about oxygen masks 3:59 How strong plane windows are 4:48 A crash ax. What's the point of it? 7:05 #planes #emergency #brightside SUMMARY: - You might know that the aircraft's cabin has to be pressurized; otherwise, passengers just wouldn't survive at the cruising altitude of more than 30,000 feet. - But imagine that something punched a hole in such a "pressure vessel." The air inside the plane would immediately want to escape due to the difference in the pressure outside and inside. - An incredibly strong wind would head out, and, theoretically, it might be powerful enough to push a person out of the window. - Within mere moments, the temperature and pressure inside the cabin would drop dramatically. Everything not secured and weighing less than several pounds, for example, newspapers, magazines, smartphones, or snacks, would be moving around and getting sucked out of the broken window. - Сontrary to a popular belief, planes don't have an infinite supply of oxygen. In fact, count yourself lucky if, in case of an emergency, the oxygen in your mask will last for 15 minutes. - The biggest dangers for the people inside, however, would be flying debris and the risk of barotrauma - an injury caused by increased air pressure. - But once again, such accidents are not just rare, they are completely out of the common. And you might be surprised to learn how strong plane windows actually are, especially in commercial aircraft. - A professional boxer packs a punch of up to 1,300 lbs. So even a tough guy like that wouldn't be able to damage an airplane window, and certainly not the average Joe. - In fact, the average person won't be able to bring any harm to it either with a fist, or a phone, or pretty much anything that is allowed on board an airliner. - At the same time, the FAA, or the Federal Aviation Administration, requires that all commercial aircraft that can transport more than 19 passengers must have a crash ax in the cockpit.

Why Phones Don't Have Removable Batteries Anymore
Why Phones Don't Have Removable Batteries Anymore
9 days ago
There still are phones with removable batteries on the market - you just don't see them as much. They’re less popular and a little outdated. More common are gadgets with batteries that are glued and screwed into the inside of the phone. You can take it out only with special tools. There are a few reasons why phones with removable batteries have lost their touch. One of them is that this new non-removable battery isn’t only for your convenience. The lifespan of an average smartphone battery is about 24 months. After that, it starts losing its capacity. And your service provider will be happy to sell you a new phone! Other videos you might like: 13 Secrets to Keep Your Phone Battery Alive for Longer usa-video.net/CSnvZ0BxC1k-video.html& 14 Things Destroy Your Computer Slowly and Unnoticeably usa-video.net/vu5aAyy0zCU-video.html Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why usa-video.net/jnb4rdaKW6k-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Manufacturers want you to be stylish! 😉 0:50 It's better for your security 1:47 It's an opportunity for profit (not yours, sorry!) 💰 2:10 ❗️ How to make your battery life last longer: ❗️ - Check location tracking for all your apps 2:40 - Ditch live wallpaper and other visual effects 3:25 - Turn off automatic app updates 4:03 - Check battery usage 4:40 - Tone down the screen brightness 5:09 - Don’t drain or charge the battery completely 5:39 - Turn off Bluetooth and WI-FI when you don’t need it 5:54 - Shut off unnecessary push notifications 6:17 - Avoid temperature extremes 6:55 - Reduce the screen timeout 7:28 - Avoid using your phone while it’s charging 8:03 - Use Airplane Mode not only on planes 8:19 #phones #smartphones #brightside SUMMARY: - Non-removable batteries don’t need a back panel, which means they take up less space inside the gadget. Slim smartphones simply look more stylish and modern! - Giving up removable batteries also made it possible to have waterproof phones. - With the battery tucked inside and difficult to get to without that removable back panel, it makes it harder for a thief to disable tracking features. - With location turned off, your battery won’t have to work overtime tracking where you are all the time. - What kind of wallpaper do you have on your phone right now? If it’s a bright flashy animated one, then your battery doesn’t last very long. - Sometimes just one power-hogging app might be the problem. Looking through your smartphone’s battery usage can help you pinpoint which app it is. - Whenever your phone is lit up, precious battery power is slipping away from you. You can lower the display brightness from the quick settings menu. - Don’t wait to charge your phone when it turns off, and unplug it before it reaches 100%. Both these extremes drain the battery. - Your phone will keep looking for a new connection as long as Bluetooth or WI-FI are enabled but the gadget isn’t connected to anything. - Your phone wakes up for each notification and lights up the screen to show you a message and give you a chance to reply. - If it’s too cold or too hot, it can strain the battery and shorten its lifespan. - If your phone is on but you’re not using it, the screen will automatically turn off after some time, usually 1-2 minutes. That’s more than likely a lot longer than you need, so why not reduce it? - Reading, watching videos, or gaming on your phone when it’s plugged in can distort the battery’s charging cycles. - As you know, Airplane Mode switches off a lot of features, but you can always manually turn on the ones you need the most without leaving Airplane mode.

14 Little-Known But Cool Facts About Your Body
10 days ago
Have anybody told you that you have an amazing body? It's just a thing of wonder! Okay, that doesn't sound right. Put it this way: the human body does a bunch of really cool stuff! Did you know, for example, that people shine? If you could look at someone through a highly sensitive camera in a light-proof room, you’d see it! By the way, how does an image quality of 576 megapixels sound? Yep, that’s how good your vision is. At the same time, the best camera humanity has been able to make so far has around 400 megapixels! Yup, your eyes are even better! Interested? Then check out these little-known but really cool facts about the human body!

In one day, it pumps blood so effectively, that it travels around 12,000 miles to run through every vessel in your body. - The difference between us and our little ape cousins is not in the quantity of hair at all - that’s the same. It’s all in the quality. We needed to sweat more effectively and thus control body heat. - Your lungs are capable of forcing air out of them so hard that it moves almost at the speed of sound. Ok, 1/3 the speed of sound, but still! - Your body has a special mechanism to manage going into water. It’s called the diving reflex, and it’s in almost every kind of mammal, including humans. - It may seem like something that just happens to your skin if it’s wet, but here’s a curveball fact: people with damaged nerves in the skin don’t get wrinkly fingers in the water! - Our brains are always active, every zone and gland in them are working at any time, even during sleep! See for yourself: if we don’t use 90% of the brain, then why does it needs around 20% of all our energy? - Every piece in your body is somehow connected to the blood supply. It transports all the goods to it and all the unwanted stuff away from it. Except for one thing - your corneas. - Somewhere around age 21, our bodies stop growing. But your ears and nose don’t stop growing. This happens because they’re made of cartilage. - A woman’s brain shrinks during pregnancy, but that’s a good thing! It gets a bit smaller during this time, but smaller isn’t always worse. - While a grown person has 206 bones, a newborn baby has around 300 of them! Their bones aren’t entirely formed or fused together when they’re born. - Your little finger teams up with the middle one to provide strength. Without the pinkie, your grip would be much weaker. It also provides control to an all-wrist movement, like when you’re working with some kind of a tool. - Human teeth are covered by a unique substance called enamel. And it isn’t white. It’s cloudy transparent with a tinge of blue.

What Happens to You When an Airline Closes
What Happens to You When an Airline Closes
10 days ago
It happens more often than you’d think. An airline will pack up shop if it chooses to close… or runs out of money. The smaller ones are more at risk to go under because they typically make their money during the peak travel season. Most airlines will try to give you back all or at least part of your money. But this stuff’s not always a guarantee. Either way, it’ll be a headache! So no matter what airline you book with, it’s always good to have a backup plan. Also, you have rights as a traveler-get to know them! Even though they’re now shut down, they should still try to do what they can for customer service’s sake. But, of course, try to be understanding. Other videos you might like: A Fast Boarding Way No Airline Will Ever Use usa-video.net/_v8_h2lB_Oo-video.html& That's Why Airplane Seats Are Almost Always Blue usa-video.net/0esI1IrxCmk-video.html& The Shortest 57-Second Passenger Flight in the World usa-video.net/ySo_2DbV90o-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why would my airline just shut down like that? 0:27 But what about my vacation? 0:58 What will happen to the planes? 1:35 What happens to the flight crew? 2:01 What happens inside the airport? 2:25 👉 Here’s what you should do: 👈 - Stay in the loop 3:10 - Still ask about hotel credits 4:01 - Do you have a Plan B? 4:20 - Did you book your flight with a credit card? 4:49 - Did you get travel insurance? 5:11 - Get your airline’s attention on social media! 5:41 - You CAN negotiate 6:08 - Save all your flight documents 6:35 - Always prepare for the worst 7:02 #airtravel #traveling #brightside SUMMARY: - If the airline owns the plane, it’ll likely be sold or auctioned off. - If one of the airlines shuts down, the airport would try and control the chaos as much as possible. Think about it-they’d be dealing with a lot of angry people. - Keep track of your booking details online. It may not explicitly say, “Your airline has gone under!” But the sooner you know about a cancelation, the better you’ll be able to plan. - As soon as you find out that your airline folded, call them directly to see what they can do as far as getting you on another flight. - If you book with a credit card, you might be able to get at least part of your money back or work something out with your travel miles. - Travel insurance can end up saving you money-you never know when a flight will be canceled! Not only for unexpected airline shutdowns but other common stuff like bad weather. - Since it’s such a public platform, it’ll be someone’s job to watch and respond on the airline’s social media accounts. You’ll probably get a quicker response than on the phone. - If your airline closes and you call them to get a refund or better price on a re-booking, you might still feel that you got the short end of the stick. - Who knows-your airline may offer to give you your money back later, or you might need to use those documents to explain your situation and get another flight. - Make sure you’ve got plenty of extra cash, especially if you’re abroad. If you’re really left high and dry somewhere far from home, hostels are usually quite affordable.

How a Tiny Island Changed the Way We Fly
How a Tiny Island Changed the Way We Fly
11 days ago
Ilaitia Tabakaucoro is a Fijian man who worked as an air traffic controller in the early 90s. Around that time, he and some pilot buddies decided to take a quick hop across the water from Fiji's main island of Viti Levu to one of the smaller islands in the northeastern part of the archipelago. Not long after the main island disappeared behind them, their plane was struck by a crosswind that knocked it off course. They realized they were lost in the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Things looked pretty dire before Tabakaucoro suddenly remembered that their plane had recently been equipped with GPS. This might seem like a mundane story but at the time, GPS was still relatively new...

It relied on using the sun, moon, and stars to identify the plane's coordinates, but needed clear skies to be effective. - The first GPS satellite launched in 1978, with an additional twenty-three satellites launching over the following fifteen years. - The US government had considered making GPS technology available to the public. - The government also made plans to increase the number of GPS satellites from fifteen to twenty-four. - The island nation had been a popular tourist destination for many years and showed no sign of slowing down in the early 90s. - In 1994, Fiji approached the US and volunteered itself as a test market for commercial GPS technology. - Fiji still needed to retrofit its entire commercial air fleet and train the crews on how to use the new equipment. But once that was done, it wasn't long before the country began reaping its rewards. - Because GPS works just as well regardless of weather, planes no longer need to be turned around mid-flight due to poor visibility. - Prior to GPS becoming widely available, two jets flying the same route couldn't be less than one hundred miles apart. - Thanks to GPS, planes can now safely fly within twenty-three miles of each other, and the delay for successive flights has been cut down to only ten minutes. - Another change is that planes no longer need to carry enough fuel to always return to their point of departure. - Needless to say, Fiji and the FAA were ecstatic to find out that their investment paid off. - GPS technology has made flights radically faster, safer, and, when adjusted for inflation, less expensive than they were as recently as thirty years ago.

What If You Swallowed a Jellyfish
What If You Swallowed a Jellyfish
11 days ago
All over the world, but especially in Asia, jellyfish are a popular food. In fact, so many people swallow jellyfish - on purpose - that the world harvests almost 354,000 tons of them every year! In China, they even raise baby jellyfish in ponds and then move them to the ocean to increase the jellyfish population. But to swallow Mr. Jelly at the beach is a really bad idea for both of you. Even common jellyfish can make you really sick, and all jellyfish have stingers. You might not think so, because in some, the stingers are too short to pierce human skin. Those ones won’t hurt us. That is … unless you swallow them.

They’re so big that when they get caught in a fisherman’s net, they can sink the ship! - Desalinated, Jellyfish don’t have much flavor, but they have hardly any fat and can add texture to food, or even be served alone if they’re dressed with something really spicy, like chili sauce. - Health-nuts will even tell you that Jellyfish Chips are a fabulous alternative to the potato kind! - A lot of sea life, especially in the deep sea where it’s super-dark, have this amazing feature. Bioluminescence allows half of all jellyfish to glow! - Scientists believe that Bioluminescent Jellyfish use flashes of light to communicate; kind of like an underwater light house. - People swallow jellyfish for medicinal and magical reasons too. Some think that eating them will ease muscle pain or improve memory. - As for magic, well, I’m not saying eating jellyfish powder will make that girl in math class fall in love with you, but the Chinese have been using dried jellyfish as a love potion for over 1700 years.

These days, our phones are basically part of us. Almost like your lift pinky. While they are magical devices that can do pretty much anything, phones aren’t invincible! Do you know, for example, that your phone uses the battery to search for reception? This will seriously drain it! By the way, don't let your phone lose its battery completely before you charge it.

Your phone might also be able to tell you when you last charged it. - If your phone is hooked up to your charger and keeps charging after it’s reached 100%, it can drain the battery. - Keep charging past that for hours while you’re in a deep slumber. In the morning you’ll find that your phone probably won’t stay at a very full battery for long! - If there are any tears in the cord you haven’t noticed, or if it doesn’t fit just right in your phone’s charging port, you might be at risk for a spark. - Don't let your phone lose its battery completely before you charge it; just wait ‘til it gets below that 30% line. - If you keep using your phone while it’s plugged in, it won’t charge as quickly, and the battery will drain faster after you unplug it. - If it’s super cold or super hot, it’s not good for your phone. Either one can hurt its internal parts! - If your screen is black, your phone doesn’t have to “work” to light up any brightly colored pixels. - Yeah, it might get a little annoying unlocking your phone more often, but setting a 15 to 30-second timeout can go a long way! - Each time you light up your screen, it uses a little bit of battery. Think of how much battery you’re using just to check your screen that many times a day!

Why Toilet Paper Is Only White
Why Toilet Paper Is Only White
14 days ago
Let’s consider bathroom tissue if you will. C’mon it’ll be fun. Ther’s all kinds: embossed, three-ply, six-ply, scented - you name it. But whatever it is to the touch or sniff, it looks the same to the eye: white. So how come toilet paper has lost its color so dramatically? The first colored TP appeared in the 1950s, when decorating your bathroom in a single style was a thing. Toilet paper producers started dyeing their products in all possible colors so that people could complete the image of their bathrooms. The popularity of colored toilet paper reached its peak by 1970s, but sometime around the 1980s, personal hygiene shelves became gradually whiter, and by 2004 all color disappeared completely...

Dyes weren’t as strictly regulated 50-70 years ago, so manufacturers could basically add whatever coloring they wanted. - Demand was failing, while the costs of production remained the same. People stopped going crazy about pink and violet bathrooms, opting for the more practical and “clean” white look. - Environmental research also showed that dyed toilet paper isn’t a good thing. - It turned out that dyed paper is slower to decompose in nature and is more difficult to dissolve in water. Basically, every time you flush down some amount of dyed TP, you face the risk of clogging the plumbing. - If you come to France, you’ll see the personal hygiene shelves stacked mostly with pink toilet paper, not white, for your delicate derriere. - In Germany, you would find different patterns, and many Eastern European nations also experiment with colors. - There are countries and traditions, though, that don’t want to have anything with toilet paper at all, considering it dirty. - In India, for example, you probably won’t find TP in any stores because it’s not in their tradition. Instead of wiping yourself, you’re expected to use a bucket and a mug that are put there inside the bathroom for your comfort. - The most interesting (and by far the craziest by today’s standards) were the Ancient Greeks who used clay and stones for hygienic purposes. - When Romans finished their business, they took the stick and washed themselves… returning it to the water bucket afterwards. And yes, the sponges were reusable. - Colonial Americans also had rather resourceful ways when it came to personal hygiene. - Farmers took corn cobs into the bathroom with them. I guess they felt those things were better suited for the business.

Where Is Planet 9?
Where Is Planet 9?
14 days ago
People have always been dreaming of conquering other galaxies and exploring space far away from our home. But the thing is that there are enough enigmas in our own Milky Way galaxy! Even better, there is one right inside our Solar System! This mystery is lurking somewhere on the outskirts of the planetary system, puzzling astronomers to no end. Once upon a time, scientists noticed that something bizarre and inexplicable was causing chaos out there, in space. A mysterious celestial body was influencing the orbits of six smaller object in Kuiper Belt, far, far away from our home planet. This something got the name of "Planet Nine"...

Hurt (IPAC), solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/hypothetical-planet-x/in-depth/ Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - The thing is massive: more than 10 times bigger than Earth and around 5,000 times as large as Pluto! - Ice giants aren't as massive as gas giants but have a similar atmosphere. - We used to believe that Neptune is the furthest planet from the Sun. But now, it may turn out that Planet Nine is the champion, being 20 times further away from the center of the Solar System than Neptune! - If you lived on Planet Nine, your year would last 10,000 to 20,000 Earth's years! - Until scientists see Planet Nine with their own eyes, they can't say for sure that it exists. But the evidence they have is quite solid. - Scientists are looking for the planet using infrared equipment. If Planet Nine does exist, it's supposed to leak infrared radiation. - But then, what if Planet Nine isn't a planet at all? The idea, which first appeared in 2019, suggests that the object that has created all this hullabaloo, might be... a black hole! - But even if this guess is correct, you have nothing to worry about: Earth isn't in danger. Primordial black holes are too small and weak to cause any serious harm to our planetary system. - A primordial black hole would explain why hypothetical Planet Nine can't be seen and doesn't produce infrared radiation. - But one of the main reasons why astronomers would be ecstatic should Planet Nine turn out to be a primordial black hole is the mystery of dark matter! - Primordial black holes could be the very dark matter astronomers are searching for! Or at least, a kind of dark matter named MACHOs (which stands for massive compact halo objects).

Why Some Planes Have Backwards Wings
Why Some Planes Have Backwards Wings
14 days ago
When you picture an airplane, a pretty familiar shape comes to mind. A long narrow body with two main wings sticking out from the middle, a pair of smaller wings on the back end, and a tail fin in the rear sticking straight up. The wings may be straight or swept to the back, but you wouldn't picture them sweeping forward, would you? Sure, some fighter jets have wings that change position, and older planes might have an extra pair in the front, but you wouldn't have a backward wing. Well, tell that to the X-29. This experimental aircraft was developed by NASA and the US Air Force back in 1984!

SUMMARY: - The concept of forward-swept wings dates all the way back to the JU-287, developed in the 1940s, and many countries have experimented with this format over the years. - Look at any plane developed before the advent of jet engines, and you’ll notice that almost all of them position their wings at a right angle to the body of the aircraft. - This works great for any aircraft flying less than 460 mph, but causes trouble for anything moving faster than that. - Unlike straight wings, where one hundred percent of the airflow moves parallel to the body of the plane, swept wings create a stream of air running lengthwise down the wing. - The air moving across the top of the wing is called the chordwise flow, named after the chord, an imaginary line that goes from the front to the rear edge of the wings. - Some military jets, such as the American F-14 Tomcat, and Russian MiG-23, can change the angle of their wings to take advantage of this effect. - The issue that has yet to be resolved is that the further back the wings of a plane are swept, the more susceptible it is to a stall. - While forward-swept wings reduce drag quite significantly, their unusual aerodynamic properties subject them to a twisting motion as they move through the air. - This brings us back to the X-29, the shining pinnacle of early eighties aircraft technology. - Shortly before a test flight, one of the prototypes malfunctioned, causing all three computers to fail simultaneously. - Ultimately, the X-29 program came to an end in 1991.

What It Was Like to Fly in the 1930s (Passengers Slept in Real Beds!)
What It Was Like to Fly in the 1930s (Passengers Slept in Real Beds!)
15 days ago
Getting on a plane to go somewhere today is almost as simple as catching a train or a taxi. But a century ago it was way more complicated. If you look at photos of aircraft passengers from the 30s, they’re rarely seen without their jackets or coats on. That wasn't just for the sake of fashion. It was really chilly inside since heated cabins were still rare back then. There were some things you couldn’t fix just by donning an extra layer of clothing. Remember those vomit bags that are still present on most jets, even though hardly anyone ever needs them anymore? They originated from a time when not puking during the flight was a real challenge.

Air travelers felt queasy and found it hard to breathe. ] - But the first commercial plane with a pressurization system didn’t emerge until 1938. - Another drawback of not having the normal pressure on board was turbulence. Without pressurization, pilots couldn’t rise further than 15,000 feet from the ground. - In the 1930s, many aircraft had either weak or no soundproofing at all. So people onboard had to deal with the sound of wind blasting by, and roaring engines. - During the 30s, one air trip from New York to Los Angeles took about 25 hours! - To get from one point to another, aviators needed to make over a dozen stops, as well as refuel a couple of times. - In 1938 you’d have to pay $243 for a week-long bumpy trip from London to Brisbane, Australia. That’s about $17,000 in today’s money! - And yet the 20s, and especially the 30s, were dubbed the golden age of flight, and for a reason. - Passengers had big and comfortable seats, and passengers could gaze out windows that were much more similar to train windows than the tiny plane ones we’re used to today. - The voyagers ate at real tables while their food was served on fine china dishes. - It’s hard to imagine, but these ships also had separate bathrooms for women and men, and even bunk beds for sleeping. - If the average cruise speed in the 1920s hovered around 100 mph, a decade later they could fly at about 200 mph.

Have you ever wondered why doctors wear white coats, and cooks have those big old floppy caps? What do teachers and pilots have in common? How much do professional line sitter and pet food taster earn? Maybe you know why firefighters shave every day? (Actually, they can wear a mustache but not a beard!) You'll also learn much more about different professions from this video. And watch it till the end if you wanna find out which jobs are the most unusual. Yup, there are REALLY fascinating and interesting professions that are not widely known. Take a look - maybe you will choose one of them!

SUMMARY: - When a firefighter enters a burning building, they put on an S.C.B.A. - a special mask connected to an oxygen tank on the back. Smoothly shaved face provides a tight and sealed position of such mask. - According to research, teachers experience the same amount of stress as firefighters and... airplane pilots. - Do you find your profession really boring? Don't worry, there’s something much more tedious out there. It’s dry paint watching! - Do you suffer because it’s hard to get up for work in the morning? Hotels sometimes invite people to "test" beds. - With regard to safety, a study was conducted in Germany, in which they found out which profession is the most beneficial for health - it's economists. - The Japanese spend more than 60% of their time at work in the office. So it's okay if you fall asleep in the middle of a working day or meeting. - It was scientifically proven that red color excites, green calms, and white gives energy, enhances activity, and inspires a sense of purity and... trust. That's why doctors always wear white clothes. - Have you noticed that some cooks have small caps, while others have long cylindrical ones? This way, the hierarchy of cooks in the kitchen is maintained. - You have all seen these huge Lego sculptures in stores and at exhibitions. They are constructed by real professionals. - It turns out your dog may have a psychological trauma or complexes, so feel free to take it to an animal psychologist. - Pets have not only psychologists but also tasters. You can earn up to $25,000 a year if you feel that you have good taste and are ready to try such products. - The readiness and maturity of Parmesan cheese is determined not only by taste, but also by sound. Specially trained people tap Parmesan with a small silver hammer and determine its quality.

Why Snakes Have Forked Tongues
Why Snakes Have Forked Tongues
15 days ago
Snakes! They look like an alien species, and some of the things they’re capable of will convince you they’re not from this planet! They see in Predator-like infrared, they shed their skin, and have you seen that weird-looking tongue? Snakes don’t use their tongue like we do. Think about it: you really don’t have time to taste something if you can only swallow food whole without chewing it. Instead of using it to taste, snakes smell with their tongues. That’s why they always flicker it in and out - they want to catch nano-particles in the air that will tell them if their prey or some kind of danger is nearby.

For example, if the smell is stronger for one part of the tongue and weaker for the other, then this smelly thing is closer to that first part. - Many snake species still have rudimentary bones that leave no doubts - some time ago, they were legs! - Somewhere in that same evolutionary process, some species aimed to become even more terrifying - they learned how to fly! - Just like legs, snakes have decided they don’t need eyelids either. Why? Because their lookers are covered in scales too! - Every animal in the world sheds its skin, including people. The only difference is that snakes do it all at once and in one big piece. - Snakes can’t see colors at all. Most of them only see shapes, and the clearest shape for them is the one that’s moving. - To make up for their horrible eyesight, snakes have a special “pit organ” near their nostrils that can sense heat radiation. - The iconic cobra hood is made of ribs that extend out and sort of umbrella the loose skin on the sides of the snake’s neck? - The real reason for the hiss - snakes don’t have vocal cords. They only have a glottis, which is a flap that closes and opens the windpipe so that food doesn’t go down the wrong tube when it’s swallowed. - It takes you 200 milliseconds to blink. Sounds like a lot for such a simple movement, but you know how quick that is! - A snake’s lower jaw isn’t attached to the upper part of the skull, which makes them highly flexible. They can open their mouth up to 150° and swallow prey that’s 5 times wider than their own body.

Why People on the Titanic Didn't Just Climb the Iceberg
Why People on the Titanic Didn't Just Climb the Iceberg
15 days ago
The “Titanic” film earned well over three billion dollars at the box office, making it the third highest-grossing movie of all time. But didn't a question pop into your head? Why didn't people try climbing on the iceberg to get out of the water? Well, if you look at any picture of an iceberg, you'll see that they can get quite steep. Sure, some might be scalable, but others are nothing but sheer cliffs of jagged ice. Best case, it would be like climbing a mountain; worst case, a frozen cliffside.

It is low, flat, and relatively shallow, while an iceberg is none of those things. - Ice floes can be hazardous, but the concern is that a ship might get pinned and crushed between two of them instead of sinking outright. - The Titanic hit an iceberg, and if you look at any picture of an iceberg, you'll see that they can get quite steep. - Imagine trying to pull that off in the dark, using only your hands and maybe a bit of rope, and surrounded by over a thousand other confused and freezing people. - The Titanic didn't sink the moment it made contact with the ice. It actually took a full two hours and forty minutes to go under. - When it came time to board the lifeboats, many passengers were reluctant, believing themselves safer on the big warm ship than the tiny open boats. - If people were that reluctant to board escape craft until it was almost too late, how were the crew going to convince them to clamber atop a freezing lump of ice? - These are all big problems that would’ve made evacuating to the iceberg unfeasible, and we haven't even gotten to the biggest one on the list: reaching it. - The Titanic didn’t exactly grind to a halt the moment it hit the iceberg. As you might have guessed, the ship's helmsman had been trying to steer away from the ice before the collision. - A glancing blow meant the Titanic wasn't stopped in its tracks. It's estimated that the Titanic was clipping along at around 22 knots, about 24 miles per hour for landlubbers. - The captain would’ve had to steer his ship back to the iceberg, something that might not have even been possible given the circumstances. - While escaping to the iceberg makes for an interesting idea, it wouldn’t necessarily have been a good one. If anything, attempting it could have made the disaster even worse.

Why Some Airplanes Have Rounded Noses and Not Pointed
Why Some Airplanes Have Rounded Noses and Not Pointed
15 days ago
Most commercial aircraft, for example, the mammoth Airbus A380, which can seat up to 868 passengers, or the somewhat smaller Boeing 747, have blunt noses. On the other hand, several models of passenger airliners have sharp noses. And all military airplanes have pointed noses. So, what gives? There are two types of planes: subsonic (meaning their speed is slower than the speed of sound) and supersonic (the ones that fly faster than you know what). And it turns out that the manufacturers decide on the shape of a plane's nose depending on the speed at which it's going to travel.

SUMMARY: - Subsonic planes are equipped with a rounded nose. During the flight, it allows the air to move around the airplane more freely. - When the air first meets the rounded nose of a subsonic airplane, it produces a shock wave. - Just look at the famous Concorde plane, which stopped flying only in 2003. With its pointed nose, this supersonic passenger airliner could fly at a maximum speed of more than twice the speed of sound. - The faster a plane flies after passing the sound barrier, the hotter it becomes. That's why some of the fastest aircraft are made of titanium. - In any case, there’s a chance that in several decades it won't matter whether a plane has a pointed or a blunt nose, because aircraft might start to look totally different altogether. - For example, according to one of the predictions, planes in the future might come without windows whatsoever! - Air travel is likely to become much greener by 2050, thanks to commercial airplanes becoming fully electric. - Also, in several decades, planes might lose their tails! - At some point, you might witness aluminum planes turning into carbon fiber ones! - There might also be some unusual looking and oddly shaped aircraft. For example, the airplanes of the future might get a box wing design. - Another cool aircraft project is called the Sky Whale; this plane may easily become the largest passenger airliner ever. - How do you feel about the "Flying V" aircraft? Such an unusual shape is supposed to make the plane super energy efficient! Also, the V-shaped aircraft would be able to travel ultra-long-haul distances.

Why Phones Don't Work in Elevators and Grocery Stores
Why Phones Don't Work in Elevators and Grocery Stores
16 days ago
People have been to space, they have invented antibiotics, you can chat with your friends with the help of your watch! But once elevator doors close, all our gimmicky phones just quit! But the worst thing is that there’s nothing we can do about it. In most cases, radio waves easily penetrate all kinds of materials, but massive chunks of solid stuff, such as rock or metal can stop them. For example, if you’ve ever driven in a mountainous region, you might have noticed that your phone signal vanished and reappeared again. This mystery has a simple explanation.

Inside, it has a radio receiver (which gets signals) and a radio transmitter (which sends signals). - Cell towers begin to send radio waves from one to another until, finally, your coded voice reaches your friend’s phone. - An elevator is a compact box made of thick sheets of metal and stuffed with electronics. - In most cases, radio waves easily penetrate all kinds of materials, but massive chunks of solid stuff, such as rock or metal can stop them. - If there is a cliff or a mountain between your phone and the nearest cell tower, it will easily prevent radio waves from getting to you. - Something similar takes place when you’re in an elevator. Radio waves from your friend’s phone are desperately trying to reach your cell phone. But they meet a barrier they can’t penetrate. - But have you ever noticed how your phone refuses to work properly once you enter certain grocery stores? - Most commercial buildings are built with the help of massive iron supports, are covered with aluminum roof tiles, and have walls filled with concrete. - But what if I tell you that my phone also regularly lets me down at concerts, big conferences, and even sporting events? - Apparently, you won’t be the only one who will be eager to share the score with those who haven’t managed to come. That’s why your cell phone must compete with thousands of other phones for the attention of the nearest antennas. - It may seem very confusing, but the truth is that your phone will know that there is a network out there and that this network does work. But at the same time, it won’t be able to connect to it.

Why the U.K. Runs Empty Trains Every Day
Why the U.K. Runs Empty Trains Every Day
16 days ago
From Monday through Saturday, at 5:16 P.M., a train takes off from Leeds and heads for the small English town of Snaith. At first, the cars will be jam-packed with people - the usual rush hour of a decent-sized city like Leeds. But with each stop along the way, you’ll notice fewer and fewer passengers on the train. Once you get to the final stop 55 minutes later, there will be no one else besides you. You get off the train at a station that’s equally as deserted. There are no vending machines or ticket offices, no parking lots, no taxies. It’s as if time has stood still. It’s quiet…and eerie. Other videos you might like: A Plane Disappeared And Landed 37 Years Later usa-video.net/0AoJddnJ6SA-video.html& A Train Lost in a Tunnel in Italy, No One Can Find It usa-video.net/d4m3HvTFG9Y-video.html& A Simple Test Will Reveal Your Deepest Fear usa-video.net/pyKmVy2TC2E-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: How many ghost trains are there in the UK? 1:34 The Ghost Station Hunters! 2:34 Why are the trains empty? 3:20 Why keep them running? 4:09 Hope for the future? 4:51 Rebirth! 5:38 In other countries 6:14 The Real Ghost Train 7:23 #ghosttrain #trains #brightside SUMMARY: - You need to buy a return ticket in advance since you can’t get one in a station without personnel. But you can only go back to Leeds at 7:01 P.M or 7:16 A.M the next day! - These empty trains are listed in all documents as ordinary trains, so there’s no way to know how many there are. To find them, you need to search timetables for routes that trains travel no more than twice a day. - If you find a ghost train full of people, they’re most likely adventure-seekers like you! - Tim Hall-Smith and Liz Morali are passionate about ghost trains. Over the past 25+ years, they’ve been to almost 50 ghost stations. - The use of passenger trains has almost doubled since 1995. More travelers are riding longer distances, yet the number of trains hasn’t gone up that much. - Ghost stations are primarily in ghost towns. Most passengers have already hopped off by the time the train gets to the final stop because, well, nobody lives there! - Surprisingly, it’s more profitable for rail companies to keep ghost trains running than to close them. - To shut down any route, they’d first have to figure out how this closure will affect passengers, the transport environment, and the economy. - There is a more positive reason why these trains continue to run - the hope that these lines will get busier. - So, is that hope for a revival of old ghost lines worth keeping? Sure! Some routes are already seeing increased activity. - Yes, ghost trains are a common thing for UK residents, much more so than most other countries. - Elsewhere, an empty train can seriously scare passengers. That's exactly what happened in 2016 in Belgium. - The train rode 7 and a half miles until another driver jumped into the moving cab and was able to stop it. - It happened in the summer of 1911. An Italian rail company called Zanetti sent a small tourist train with about 100 passengers to travel around the country. - It entered the tunnel but never made it out the other side! Apparently, as the train approached the mountain, a thick white fog suddenly surrounded it. - The tunnel was thoroughly investigated. There weren’t any signs of a crash, there wasn’t a shred of evidence a train had entered it.

What If the Color Green Disappeared for 24 Hours
What If the Color Green Disappeared for 24 Hours
17 days ago
We’re so used to how colorful our world is, that we forget to appreciate the colors around us. Imagine what would happen if the most abundant color in nature suddenly disappeared? What would the world look like without green, and what would it mean for us to live without it? What’s your favorite green colored thing in the world? Apples? Northern Lights? Comic books about The Incredible Hulk? Imagine if they all suddenly lose their color and become bland and grey. Would you enjoy these things as much after that?

It has the most variety of shades and tints among all the others. - Green mixed with vibrant yellow will look fresh and juicy, but mix it with pale yellow and a little brown and it’ll look sickly and disturbing. - Dark green is associated with wealth and reliability; but make it just a bit darker and it’ll be connected with greed and look militaristic. - Green is associated with all movements that aim at preserving the ecology of our planet. - If the emblem of some organization is green - you know immediately that it has something to do with recycling or environmental clean-up, or the preservation of endangered species. - Being one of the most peaceful colors, it’s linked to reliability and safety. Lots of brands use this to their advantage. - The green pigment used in bills has proved itself to be sturdier than others. It simply doesn’t wear off with time. - With green come the feelings of a fresh start, peace, and calmness that balance out the red perfectly for everyone’s favorite time of the year. - Green is so strongly associated with safety that, even before elementary school, we learn that a green traffic light means it’s safe to go. - Pharmacies around the world also prefer to represent themselves with the help of shining green crosses. They’re immediately recognizable signs, making it easy to spot a drugstore at any time. - Ever heard of ‘green with envy’? And if someone’s face has a greenish hue, it might be a clue about how this person feels today. - Green also has a sacred meaning in traditional spiritual practices that have a lot to do with medicine and self-betterment. Like for example, yoga. - According to this teaching, green is the color of the heart’s chakra, which is the main link between higher chakras based on meaningful and spiritual needs, and lower chakras that represent natural needs that are inevitable in human nature.

A Father's Duty
A Father's Duty
17 days ago
I never actually realized how much I loved my son until that night. The night of the accident. We were driving on a highway, singing along to our favorite song on the radio, getting back home from an awesome vacation. You could probably say we’re a perfect family, the three of us -my wife Martha, our son Jack and me. None of us have an ear for music, but we still love singing and dancing. So, like I said, we were speeding along the road, happy and carefree for once. It was late evening, but the sky was still pretty bright, and the air was crisp and clear. I was behind the wheel, my wife sat beside me, and Jack was in the back seat behind her. I never noticed that jeep. The man who was driving it said he hadn’t seen us either, but… I don’t know what to think.

I’d never been that thankful for seat belts. - Martha came to her senses in the car, but Jack didn’t. The paramedics said it was alright, he was just knocked out, but I couldn’t stop worrying. - In the hospital, after several long hours of restless wait, they said Martha was extremely lucky. - It turned out to be his kidneys. The impact shook Jack so much that they were failing. He needed a transplant, and soon. I was… petrified. - When they asked me the final time whether I was ready to donate one of my kidneys to Jack, my answer was a firm “yes.” - The surgery was then scheduled for the following week, when Jack was ready. - The operation was successful. My son had my kidney in him now, and he was doing fine. - The kidney he received adapted well to his body. He called me his hero. What else could a father wish for, right? - Jack graduated from high school and went on to college. I was never so proud as on the day he was accepted. - They come to visit me every month or so. They sit beside me, share the news, tell me everything that I missed and update me on their current affairs. - They don’t know I can hear them, but they still remember and love me, I can sense that. Yep, I didn’t make it that day. But that was alright, I was ready for it.

What If the Titanic Sank Today
What If the Titanic Sank Today
17 days ago
Sea travel is safer today than at any point in history. But still, how worried should we be? Could a Titanic-like disaster happen today? Before we can answer our main question, we need to know what led to the sinking of the Titanic becoming one of the worst maritime disasters in history. Everyone knows the basic story: the ship hit an iceberg and there weren’t enough lifeboats. The first big issue contributing to the ship's demise had to do with the culture of early twentieth-century ocean liners. The captains of these ships were under constant pressure to keep a tight schedule of arrivals and departures. Additionally, it was widely believed that icebergs didn’t pose any significant danger to ships.

Relaying messages to the crew was the second priority to sending private telegrams for the passengers. - Additionally, it was widely believed that icebergs didn’t pose any significant danger to ships. - The lack of lifeboats was also due to a misunderstanding of how any potential collisions would play out, and not just because they would be redundant on an invincible ship. - No one had ever anticipated the need to evacuate everyone on-board onto lifeboats. - By 1912, ships weren't yet required to have someone operating the radio 24/7. - Making matters worse was the fact that the Titanic's radio operator reported the wrong coordinates in his SOS. This meant that even the ships that received the call had trouble finding where the Titanic had gone down. - After the Titanic sank, many new procedures were established with the hope of preventing similar disasters. - One of the first was the establishment of regular ice patrols in that region of the North Atlantic. - Another reason today is better than a century ago is that our iceberg detection has gotten a lot more sophisticated. - Accidents can still happen, so it’s a good thing large vessels are now required to carry enough lifeboats for everyone aboard, and the crews receive training in proper evacuation procedures. - Modern ships are also required to have a radio operator on duty at all times. - A good example might be what happened during the 2012 Costa Concordia disaster. - The Italian cruise ship was passing close to the island of Giglio when it collided with the edge of an underwater plateau. - It was later revealed that there were numerous distractions on the ship, such as the presence of the Captain's girlfriend. - Unlike the Titanic, the Concordia had more than enough lifeboats to get everyone off safely. - If the Titanic had struck the iceberg today, the Coast Guard would’ve deployed a small fleet of boats and helicopters to assist in the evacuation. - With a competent commander overseeing an organized evacuation, this modern Titanic might not be considered a disaster at all.

What If There Was No Electricity for a Year
What If There Was No Electricity for a Year
18 days ago
A person can go without food for a couple weeks, water for a few days, air for mere minutes. But without electricity ... it's hard to say. It all depends on where you live, what survival skills you have, and how much you depend on the conveniences of living on the grid. But let's see what will happen to humanity if electricity disappeared for, say, a year! So, there’s a bit of charge left on the phone, but your mobile data isn’t working. Nobody suspects that communication towers have shut down, which means no calls, not even emergencies! For now, all you know is, the Internet is gone! You don’t have any offline games either. Your phone is nothing more than an overpriced calculator now...

Hey, why not grab a latte to pass the time? The barista cuts you off as soon as you walk in the door. - You overhear a group of people talking about a nasty crash on a busy intersection. Oh yeah, traffic lights don’t work now. - First thing’s first, a nice hot shower to wash this crazy situation away. …No tap. The toilet doesn’t flush either. - All you notice are dimly lit windows - everyone else is lighting candles too. - The perishables in your fridge have long reached the point of no return. You throw out your milk, eggs, cheese, and so on. - You better have cash on you - card readers aren’t going to work. Neither will ATMs. Anyone with money in the bank now has no access to it… - Emergency generators are already running out all over the world - the most powerful models can only go for 24 hours max. - The global economy is plummeting. Commerce, banking, trade, national and personal debt - they’re just gone overnight! - Small communes have sprouted up everywhere. People extract water from wells, they stay fed thanks to agriculture and fishing. - Light appears! Once they fix things up and electricity is back, it’ll take at least 10 years to fully restore the economy, infrastructure, and production. - There’s a layer of it in the atmosphere that protects the Earth from harmful ultraviolet and cosmic radiation. Lightning benefits the planet in lots of other ways too. - Electromagnetic fields make all atoms and molecules stick together to form tangible matter - that is, you, me, and everything around us. - If the charge in the electrons disappears and they stop repelling, then gravity will begin to squeeze them together with such force that a black hole will arise and begin to absorb all matter!

Thanks to University of the People for sponsoring this video! Make sure to click the link below if you want to give your brain a real training and get an education accessible to anyone! www.uopeople.edu/? You ever walk into a room just to forget where you were going or what you were looking for? How about finding your car keys in the fridge or the dog’s food in your cereal bowl? Sounds like you could use a brain boost. There're some really great ways you can train the old thinker! Did you know, for example, that automated actions stall your brain since it’s not taking an active part in what you’re doing? Or that solving math problems doesn’t even rack your brain as much as learning an unfamiliar tongue? And if you have a sweet tooth, this one’s for you: chocolate contains an important amino acid that helps your brain process things faster and with more efficiency! #UoPeople #OnlineLearning #Education Other videos you might like: 9 Brain Exercises to Strengthen Your Mind usa-video.net/pCpiteBel8E-video.html&; 4 Exercises to Test How Fast Your Brain Is usa-video.net/FiDFjSQ8Vqw-video.html&; A Japanese Technique to Overcome Laziness usa-video.net/9DbvSl_C_kY-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Draw 0:20 Change up your routine 0:41 Get a degree 1:19 👈 Use the opposite hand 2:19 Write 2:50 Learn a new language 3:24 Play chess 3:45 Play video games 4:11 🎮 Do the chores 4:36 Pick your nose 4:59 Walk 5:27 Eat chocolate 5:57 🍫 Breathe 6:31 Sleep 7:10 Music: www.epidemicsound.com SUMMARY: - Drawing makes your right brain hemisphere work like a hundred horses, triggering creativity and helping you find unconventional solutions to problems at hand. - Automated actions stall your brain since it’s not taking an active part in what you’re doing. To avoid this lack of memory and train your brain at the same time, change up your routine every day. - You can get a degree that fits your schedule, and avoid student-debt at University of the People, the first non-profit, US-accredited, online university, where you can get a tuition-free Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the most in-demand fields like: business administration, education, health, computer science. - If you’re a righty, take a spoon or your toothbrush into your left hand and do the usual stuff. Lefties, you’re now righties for the day! - Typing on a keyboard or smartphone is okay too, but actual writing with a pen on paper activates critical-thinking and increases your analytical skills. - When you learn a language, you take on a whole new system, and your brain has no other choice but to adapt to the circumstances. - Chess is one of the oldest strategic games in the world, and it’s stood the test of time because it’s awesome, as simple as that. If you play it regularly, you’ll learn to concentrate and think bigger, taking actions that will affect your life a few steps ahead. - One 2015 study found that action video games in particular improve reaction time, observation skills, and decision-making. - House work also contributes to your brain power. It boils down to physical activity (which is great for the noggin, but more on that later!). It’s also effective at taking your mind off the bigger problems too. - Walking increases your blood flow, which means more blood (and oxygen that hitchhikes along with it) reaches your brain. This boosts the thinking organ’s activity, making it more flexible when it comes to important stuff. - If you have a sweet tooth, this one’s for you: chocolate contains an important amino acid, lysin, that helps your brain process things faster and with more efficiency. It’s only about dark chocolate, though, because lysin is found in cocoa beans. - Here’s a simple exercise that will fill your brain with oxygen and let you feel a rush of energy. Exhale all the air from your lungs and hold your breath for as long as you can. When you can’t hold it any longer, breathe in powerfully and repeat. The influx of air into your lungs will send oxygen to the tissues, and your blood will start pumping faster. - Just don’t forget to check out the link to today’s video sponsor down in the description box. It’ll take you to University of the People, where a great brain-training journey awaits!

Why Objects Fall If There Is No Gravity in Space
Why Objects Fall If There Is No Gravity in Space
18 days ago
Have you ever wondered why stars fall at all if there’s no gravity in space? We have all seen astronauts swimming in the air on ISS like fish in the water. But if you think that it happens because there is zero gravity there, you’ll learn something new today. “Zero gravity” doesn’t mean there is none of it. If there were no gravity in space the Earth wouldn’t be able to hold the Moon near itself. All the planets and stars would just fly across the Universe freely, bump into each other and - well, it would probably end things really quickly. Gravity can be tiny but never absent, this is one of its laws. Other videos you might like: The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Has Been Solved usa-video.net/q_5n7URd2Gk-video.html&; What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean? usa-video.net/0PZ8KwlxhIk-video.html&; A Mysterious Object Punched a Hole in the Milky Way, Scientists Are Confused usa-video.net/_iJsEdhFgzc-video.html TIMESTAMPS: The Earth's gravity in the orbit 0:59 The ISS is falling to Earth all the time (Wait, what?! 😮) 1:39 Why ISS can't rise too high 3:08 Is “zero gravity” a myth? 3:44 Why shooting stars appear in the sky ☄️ 4:23 Where does the star shower come from? 6:00 #stars #space #brightside SUMMARY: - The Earth's gravity is only 10% less in the orbit than on the ground. If we build a platform 190-250 miles high (it’s the altitude of ISS above Earth) and throw a stone from there it will fall down just the same way as it falls down from your balcony. - But then why don’t astronauts just walk on the floor of ISS as we do on Earth? The reason for it is that when in the orbit they are in a state of a constant free fall to Earth, and the ISS itself is also falling to Earth all the time. - Why don’t they raise ISS higher above the Earth where astronauts won’t have to free fall? - Astronauts can stay on ISS for so long because the uppermost atmosphere protects them from solar radiation. - At the altitude above 310 miles, there are radiation belts that have a destructive impact on humans. - If a body is far enough from a space object the gravity of the space object will be too small, and their mutual attraction will roughly balance each other. - What we take for shooting stars are just small stones floating in space and their orbit or our orbit, makes us run into each other. - The speed is so high that the air gets super-hot and starts shining. - In science, shooting stars are called meteors. If parts of meteors do reach the Earth's surface they are called meteorites. Super bright meteors are called fireballs. - Hundreds of millions of meteors appear in the atmosphere daily. Their total weight can be thousands of tons. - Meteors can form as a result of a collision of another planet and a smaller space object. - Small space bodies can have quite a different direction but if they come too close to the Earth, its gravity will turn them around and pull down. - Astronomers watch closely all the big space objects that could potentially get too close to our planet when moving along their orbit. - If you trace the way of meteors on the sky it will seem that they all fly out of the same spot. It is called a meteoroid stream radiant.

What Happens After You Flush on a Cruise Ship
What Happens After You Flush on a Cruise Ship
19 days ago
These days, any cruise ship is like a huge city, where every detail is thought out so that passengers feel just as comfortable as on land, only better. You can take a shower, do the laundry, or swim in a pool. But where does all the dirty water go? The average ship spends about 40-50 gallons of water per passenger every day. It makes tons of wastewater that needs to be utilized. Say, the world's biggest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, can carry about 5,500 passengers together with 2,300 crew members. They produce about 312,000 gallons of wastewater daily!

Blackwater comes from bathrooms. - The highest volume of wastewater comes from greywater. It gets mixed with some of the blackwater and is sent to the bio-reactor. - Chlorine and other chemicals aren’t used since they’re bad for the sea’s eco system. - The solid waste that was filtered at the first stage is kept in special tanks until the ship arrives at the harbor where it’ll be utilized. - Scientists have noticed that ballast water taken from one ocean and thrown into another is bad for the ecosystem. - The species of plankton and other sea inhabitants vary in different oceans, and the “strangers” can start destroying the “natives”. - Sensitive detectors measure the level of oil in the water, and if it’s even a bit higher than what’s allowed, the water is sent for cleaning again. - There’s special staff on board every ship who sort out the garbage into 4 categories - food waste, paper, metal and glass, and plastic. - Most of the food waste is considered natural: it doesn’t do any harm to the sea’s ecosystem. - Household waste, cooking grease, and solid waste are kept on board until the ship arrives at the harbor and is utilized there. - Metal and glass are just thrown overboard. Surprised? These two just drop to the bottom and do no harm to the sea. - Strict rules also apply to the passengers themselves. On every deck of a cruise ship, there are usually special instructions that forbid them from throwing anything overboard themselves. - Turns out, all cruise ships have desalinating plants. When the ship goes farther than 25 miles from the land, they take seawater, which goes through a many-layered filter, a powerful ultra-violet lamp, and a desalinator. - The desalinating plant is the size of a room and gives enough fresh water for all the passengers and crew.

What If You Woke Up in the Game You Last Played
What If You Woke Up in the Game You Last Played
19 days ago
I don’t know what happened, but it all started a week ago. I was remembering the good old times and playing Morrowind, and I lost track of time. Late at night, I just fell asleep in front of my PC, and that’s when the crazy stuff began. I woke up because I heard the voice of Jiub… right in front of me. He was addressing me - not my character, but me. I thought I was still dreaming, but I could literally smell the prison ship, and it was all so… real. Then I accidentally bumped into a table on the way to the exit, and it hurt a little. That’s when I knew it wasn’t a dream at all...

Yeah, I do that from to time to time to relax. This time, though, a weird idea came to me. What if I stay up late again and see what happens? I mean, I’d already been to Morrowind, why not the Minecraft world? - I looked at my hands, and they were made of blocks too. I woke up in a forest biome, so everything around me was lush green, but there was also a cave nearby, with its ceiling half collapsed. - I spent the rest of the daytime exploring the glades and woods. By the way, the day lasted just like it would in the real world, not only 20 minutes. By the nightfall, I got a bit tired, so I settled down, built myself a lean-to, and made a fire. - I supposed I had no choice but to lie down and have a nap. I fell asleep very quickly, just hoping it wouldn’t end like the previous time… …yet it did. I woke up again in my own bed. - I spent the whole day in anticipation. I’m not that much of a gamer, you know, but all this was so exciting that I couldn’t really concentrate on anything else but my next virtual adventure. - And the game I chose was Fortnite. No, I didn’t just give in to all the hype around it; I wanted to actually see what it would be like to participate in a battle royale from the first person perspective. - It was so weird feeling my legs working and realizing that someone might appear from behind any wall or tree at any moment, with their intentions being anything but good. - I sat with my back to some tree and watched my surroundings intently for any signs of other players. Or were they really players? Could it be that I wasn’t alone in that strange world? - I felt a sudden hit to my head and lost consciousness. I guess that was the end of it. - I came round at home again, as I always did after my adventures. But this time I felt it was different. Both the first and the second time I simply fell asleep in the game world, while now I’d been, well, obliterated. - My head hurt, so I took some painkillers and went for breakfast. But I was already thinking whether I’d be able to come back to that world, or to any other, for that matter. - I played until I fell asleep again… and woke up in what felt like a couple of hours, lying face down on my keyboard. Yep, that was really the end.

What Would Life Be Like Without Metals?
What Would Life Be Like Without Metals?
19 days ago
So what would life be like without metals? You know, copper, silver, lead, iron, and whatnot. What if they all just disappeared overnight? As if some has meddled with our metal. “So, no more spoons and coins? Big deal!” you say. Not so fast! You can go ahead and say goodbye to that phone of yours. And the tablet, TV, computer, all the blinky fun stuff. They’re not just made of plastic and a glass screen. Metals are most often used as conductors of electric current. Without them, all our flashy toys are useless. Plus, they have metal parts inside them. And you know what all that means? All modern ways of communication are no longer... Other videos you might like: What If Megalodon Sharks Didn't Go Extinct? usa-video.net/Xh6pVbaEJTw-video.html& What If You Stopped Showering for a Year? usa-video.net/ckqAkbPl-e4-video.html& What If a Rusty Nail Poked Your Foot? usa-video.net/kXTLt2HrKG4-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: No more Internet 0:24 No more electricity 1:20 No more fast food 1:53 What can you do for fun? 2:20 Healing herbs, natural remedies... 4:01 and straw huts! 5:04 Metals in the human body 5:56 No metal, no you, no me, and no Earth 7:15 #whatif #metal #brightside SUMMARY: - You could write a letter, but how will you send it - carrier pigeons? This metal-free world has also lost all modern means of transportation! - Metal is used to conduct electric currents. No artificial light source will work without metal. - But electricity isn’t just about lights and sockets. You won’t have running water - the main station uses electricity! - Musicians won’t have any instruments! Guitars might be made from wood, but those strings are usually steel. - From the gym to the hospital, this place also looks quite different! Without metals, it won’t be possible to carry out an operation - even X-rays won’t be possible! - Hope you have something valuable to trade with the doctor for taking care of you! Of course, there are no more metal coins - that’s obvious. - Besides the steel frame keeping the whole thing standing, a lot of the construction materials like concrete and cement have metals in them too! So, I guess we get to live in straw huts! - About 3% of your total body weight is just metals. - A person needs calcium for strong bones and teeth. So without it, our skeleton would become fragile like glass. - Zinc keeps the immune system in working order. That’s what helps your body fight off sicknesses and heal cuts and wounds! - You also have enough iron in you to make a small nail. Iron helps saturate the body's cells with oxygen. - Speaking of oxygen, magnesium plays a similar role in plants as iron does with moving oxygen in animals - it’s essential for photosynthesis. - Without the core, Earth loses its magnetic field. And we need that protective magnetic bubble because it keeps the ozone layer in place! - For that matter, all the Earth’s layers are made up of different metals. The mantle has a bunch of iron, magnesium, and aluminum. - The crust is mostly oxygen, but it also has aluminum, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

What If the Asteroid Had Been 10 Seconds Late
What If the Asteroid Had Been 10 Seconds Late
20 days ago
You wake up because the ground is shaking. Ah, nothing new - a Diplodocus has just passed by your house. You look out of the window - oh, no! Nope, you haven't somehow come round in Jurassic Park. That's what your life would’ve been if the asteroid had hit Earth just several seconds later. Yep, the very asteroid that collided with our planet about 65 million years ago, causing havoc across the globe and wiping dinosaurs out. It turns out that if this asteroid had fallen a mere 10 seconds later, you wouldn't recognize Earth these days. Let's see what your day in this new (even though only for you) world would look like! Other videos you might like: 10 Biggest Sea Dinosaurs That Ever Existed on Earth usa-video.net/IFPMKNCT6fo-video.html& What If Dinosaurs Were Still Alive Today? usa-video.net/OeFnH4xux7w-video.html& 10 Extinct Animals Scientists Are Ready to Bring Back usa-video.net/cHZ5mJK4J5Q-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Your vision would be much sharper 0:48 How about a pet dino? 😊 1:36 Many animals didn't appear at all! 3:29 Dinosaurs with a surprisingly big brain 5:03 No dairy products in supermarkets 🥛 5:58 That ill-fated asteroid 7:26 #asteroid #dinosaurs #brightside SUMMARY: - Dinos had a color vision, and it was more difficult for them to blend in. Most dinos were multicolored, which helped them to hide in the environment they lived in. - But dinos being so great at camouflaging themselves made human vision much sharper. Otherwise, they wouldn't have been able to notice well-disguised animals. - In the real world, before the asteroid hit Earth, the biggest part of the planet was covered with tropical forests. Vegan dinosaurs roaming there were huge, slow, and clumsy. - In our imaginary world, the asteroid let dinosaurs live to see the in nutritious plants evolve into something much better - flowering plants, berries, and fruit. - They were becoming smaller and smaller until a big part of them moved to live on trees and started to drink nectar. - People managed to tame some of these miniature animals - that's where the pet you found under your bed comes from! - By following their evolutionary route, dinos prevented mammals from evolving and developing. That's why in the dino-world, people appeared much later than in our real world. - Even though the asteroid was several seconds late, the planet was developing pretty much in the same way. As for the hoofed animals, mammals, and most predators that live on our planet today, they didn't appear at all. - There are tiny dinos that spend most of their time in holes and burrows, just like our moles and lizards. Some dinosaurs lost their plumage and grew fur. - You can't help but notice some other difference between life in our world and the one in the world full of dinosaurs. For example, since there are no cows and other hoofed animals, and dinos can't produce milk, there are no dairy products in supermarkets. - By crashing into Earth, the asteroid caused an abrupt temperature drop and the disappearance of three-fourths of all animal species that were living on our planet at that time. - But if the asteroid had fallen several seconds later, it would have landed in the deep ocean. The water would have taken the edge off the collision, and the hit wouldn't have had such dramatic consequences. - It hit the ground at the speed of 20 miles per second and blew clouds of dust, soil, and rocks into the air. This debris not only went up to the upper layers of the atmosphere but also reached space. - Sea inhabitants were more protected from the disastrous after-effects of the collision. But not for long. Plankton couldn't live without sunlight, and when it disappeared, small fish that fed on it didn't survive either. - Those animals who were hibernating during the moment of impact or lived in burrows survived, but they also had a hard time trying to fend off hunger.

Why Phones Are Getting Slow These Days
Why Phones Are Getting Slow These Days
20 days ago
Ah, that new-phone thrill! Yet just a few months later, you notice what was once the sportscar of phones is now crawling like an old clunker. Why does that happen, and how can you speed yours up? It’ll struggle when it has too many apps installed and running in the background, there’s hardly any storage space on it, it’s overworked and overheated, your operating system is out-of-date, and your battery deserves a happy retirement. It can also just be a matter of perception when you see an ad for a newer model and think of yours as something outdated and slow. But let’s see what you can do to speed your phone up! Other videos you might like: Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why usa-video.net/jnb4rdaKW6k-video.html& 15 Mistakes That Shorten the Life of Your Phone usa-video.net/0Z-pLovvqkg-video.html& Stop Using Your Phone Sitting on the Toilet usa-video.net/H_zbGb5yBtI-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Give it a restart 1:52 Update your phone 2:26 Free up some space 3:00 Sort your apps 3:39 Try lightweight versions of apps 4:17 Turn down the graphics 4:34 Clear your cache 4:59 Turn Bluetooth on only when you need it 5:39 Disable automatic background processes 5:50 Replace the battery 6:27 Restore to factory settings 7:00 #smartphone #gadgets #brightside SUMMARY: - As simple as it sounds, sometimes just restarting your phone is all it needs to kick it into high gear. The reason for its snail’s pace is often a misbehaving app. - Keeping your Operating System up-to-date is good for your gadget because updates include the latest security patches and fixes for some common issues. - Your phone needs at least 10% of available storage free to be able to function correctly. You can see how much storage you have and which folders or apps are eating the most memory in your Settings. - Most phones come with bloatware - apps that are pre-installed and useless if we’re being honest. Sometimes you also install apps to get a discount at a store or just to try it out. - If you just can't say good riddance to some bulky apps, at least replace them with lighter versions. - An ambient display keeps you up-to-date with all the important notifications, and you don't even have to unlock your phone to see them. But… it eats up your battery life, and you know what it does to your phone speed already. - Your built-in browser keeps a cache of the web pages you visit with cookies, login information, and other data to help you navigate through them easier. But when the cache is too full, your phone slows down. - Hey, is your Bluetooth on right now? Is it connected to anything? If not, then turn it off. It’s a real drag for your phone! - The older your phone's battery gets, the more likely it is to shut down unexpectedly, even when it was charged well enough. - Resetting your phone deletes all the apps and data you’ve had on it, so make sure you back it up on cloud storage or a computer before you wipe it clean.

What If There Was No Gravity for 1 Minute
What If There Was No Gravity for 1 Minute
20 days ago
Remember that unsatisfactory feeling as a kid when you’d try to jump in the air as high as possible, and something brings you back to the ground? Well, that is Gravity. Like your mother, it's always there, it never changes, and you can’t break it’s rules. But that's for the better! If one day, the Earth's gravity disappeared, the consequences would be flat out disastrous. Gravity depends on the mass, which is, in turn, related to the matter. The more matter you have, the bigger the mass is. And the bigger the mass is, the stronger an object's gravitational pull is. You might have noticed that the gravity on our planet never changes, right? That's because the mass of the Earth always remains the same. But what if we imagined that one day, our planet would give off a terrifying “crack”, and gravity would just disappear? Other videos you might like: The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Has Been Solved usa-video.net/q_5n7URd2Gk-video.html& What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean? usa-video.net/0PZ8KwlxhIk-video.html& A Mysterious Object Punched a Hole in the Milky Way, Scientists Are Confused usa-video.net/_iJsEdhFgzc-video.html TIMESTAMPS: What gravity is 0:32 We would simply fly off into space 2:03 The Earth would lose the Moon 🌒 3:07 No air to breathe 3:25 The Earth would break into pieces 4:01 What if gravity, on the contrary, became stronger? 4:32 💪 #gravity #space #brightside SUMMARY: - Gravity is a force that draws atoms toward each other. Our planet is a big-big number of atoms, crammed together. That's why its gravitational pull is very real and very perceptible. - The more matter you have, the bigger the mass is. And the bigger the mass is, the stronger an object's gravitational pull is. - Should huge chunks of the planet get ripped out from under your feet, the gravity would gradually change as well. - The most obvious outcome would be floating. I mean that you, the bed you've been sleeping on, your alarm clock, and your cup of unfinished tea would instantly rise into the air. - If the gravity got switched off, anything unattached to the ground would simply fly off into space. People unlucky enough to be outside when the gravity disappears would be gone in the blink of an eye. - Those people inside buildings would be safer, but not for long. It's true that man-made structures are supposed to be firmly rooted to the ground. - Furthermore, the Earth would lose one of its best friends - the Moon. The only thing keeping the Moon from floating away and keeping our planet's natural satellite in orbit is the Earth's gravity. - Later, when life on Earth would cease to exist completely (what with no air and water), the lack of gravity would finally take its toll on the planet itself. - Without the main force holding things together, it would likely break into pieces and float off into space. - What if gravity, on the contrary, became stronger, and not only on the Earth, but everywhere in the Universe? Would it influence your life? - If the gravity changed even slightly, it’d completely disrupt the existing balance, and the Earth would move into a new orbit. As a result, our planet would start traveling about 10% closer to the Sun. - Bridges wouldn't stand any chance; neither would large buildings, such as skyscrapers. Smaller houses might remain standing for some time, but they’d need to be reinforced. - Experiments in centrifuges show that people can easily tolerate two times the Earth's gravity for up to 22 hours with no harm to their health. - Dormant volcanoes that’ve been sleeping for thousands of years would wake up and start changing the surface of the planet. - If gravity became twice as strong as it is now, the Earth would spiral into the sun at a dizzying rate.

What If Only One Baby Was Born in a Year
What If Only One Baby Was Born in a Year
20 days ago
Three hundred and sixty thousand babies are born every day around the world. But what if there weren’t quite so many? What if, for one year, only a single baby was born? It’s not necessary to get into the biology of how this would happen. So let’s just pretend the stork took a year-long holiday and forgot to call a sub. The moment the first doctor makes an innocuous Facebook post about not having many new patients, the conspiracy train would get rolling. As scientists around the globe struggle to explain what just happened, people would come up with their own answers. Many might believe that it’s the beginning of the end of the world... Other videos you might like: No Boys Were Born In a Mystery Village for 10 Years usa-video.net/SuVrHAkSElQ-video.html Here's What Your Baby Will Look Like usa-video.net/KELSthXPoSs-video.html& 10 Superpowers You Had When You Were a Baby usa-video.net/RurDrecMjP4-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: There would be mass hysteria 1:02 What if you were the only baby born in a year? 3:15 What about the long-term effects? 4:28 #whatif #demography #brightside SUMMARY: - No births for a year would be preceded by about nine months with no new pregnancies. - Doctors who specialize in pregnancy are known as obstetricians, or OB-GYNs. - They’d realize none of their colleagues are seeing any new pregnancies either, and it's only a matter of time until someone raises the alarm. - Many might believe that it’s the beginning of the end of the world. That might sound farfetched, but mass panic has happened before over less real threats. - Let’s say about ten months into the year without newborns, the world breathes a sigh of relief as the year’s first and only baby is born, happy and healthy. And for the fun of it, let's say that this baby is you. - As the only baby of the year, you'd be a celebrity before you were even born. The whole world would know your name before you could even walk. - Life isn’t just going to suddenly go back to normal after something like this. - For starters, companies that specialize in things for babies would definitely have a rough fiscal year. - While children can start eating solid food after about six to eight months, most won't be ready to ditch baby food entirely until they're around two. - Where things get complicated is when it comes to education and healthcare. - Maternity wards aren't going to see any use for about a year. - Every year for twelve years, schools around the world would be missing almost an entire grade's worth of students. - This could lead to teachers being laid off, potentially disrupting the education system for years to come. - On the plus side, there’ll be less competition for you in getting into the dream college of your choice.

What If You Were Invited to Have Tea with the Queen
What If You Were Invited to Have Tea with the Queen
20 days ago
So you wake up one morning, and an owl brings you … no, not an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, but an invitation to have afternoon tea with Her Majesty the Queen of England herself! Oh, my! Aren’t you a special one? Have you learned all the DOs and DON’Ts of royal tea protocol? “Afternoon tea” is served at around 4 o'clock and isn't just a snack but also a social affair. That means, get ready for plenty of etiquette rules! For example, just because there was no exact dress code on the invite doesn't mean you can dress the same way you do when you go to the grocery store on Sundays! Other videos you might like: 10 Facts Proving Even the Queen Has Strange Habits usa-video.net/hJxRjVaIEFk-video.html& 9 Surprising Facts About Royal Nannies usa-video.net/29qAMSFYYPM-video.html& 20 Secrets Buckingham Palace Is Hiding from Strangers usa-video.net/IewMi0uDjXY-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: What you should wear 1:12 The right way to address the Queen 1:43 When at a Royal tea party, do as the Royals do! 2:34 Hold the cup correctly 3:28 And look into the cup! 4:40 The most exciting part - food! 5:37 #royalfamily #queen #brightside SUMMARY: - Anyone who's about to meet the royal family is supposed to wear something right for the occasion: smart casual or business casual will be just fine. - When at a Royal tea party, do as the Royals do. So start with sugar, if you need any, then fill the cup up to about three-quarters using a strainer. It's placed over your cup for that reason. - Now that there’s milk and sugar in your tea, you want to stir it. Don’t make a little whirlpool in the cup by stirring the tea in circular motions! You need to stir it back and forth from 12 to 6 if you imagine it like the face of a clock. - As much as you want to warm up your hands, don't wrap them around your tea! The proper way to do it is to hold the loop of the handle with your index finger and thumb. - British royals don't really stick their pinkies up to show how posh they are. I even heard extending it is a pretty rude gesture. - This saucer looks fantastic, it's the most exquisite pottery and everything, but please leave it on the table. It's only okay to hold it together with the cup when there's no table in front of you, like when you’re standing. - When the cup is on the table, it should always point at the 3 on your imaginary clock. If you're left-handed, you can relocate it to 9 o'clock for convenience. - When drinking, focus on the teacup! Don't look over it around the room. - Don’t slurp or gulp it down! As you lift your cup, take just one sip, then carefully put it back. And stop blowing on it! - And now comes the most exciting part - food! It’s served on a pyramid of three tiers. - The sandwiches you’ll see at a royal tea party will be bite-sized and without crusts. Her Majesty’s personal favorites are with fillings of cucumber, smoked salmon, egg and mayonnaise, or ham and mustard. - So, the top of the pyramid is where you’ll find the sweets. Crispy cookies, strawberry tarts, honey and cream sponge, and many other kinds of cakes all gorgeous and fancy as can be. - It looks like the party is coming to an end. To wrap it up, take the napkin off your lap and leave it to the left of your cup and saucer.

What If Just One Planet Disappeared from the Solar System
What If Just One Planet Disappeared from the Solar System
21 day ago
Have you ever thought about what will happen to your solar system’s “perfect harmony” if it loses a planet? For example, the closest planet to the Sun is Mercury, right? Oh, it’s so small! So with Mercury gone, how’s Earth looking? Hmm, no changes in the solar system. It’s all about gravity. Every object that has some mass attracts other objects because of its gravitational force. The larger the mass, the greater the force it has. Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system, so it’s not too massive in space terms. But what about other planets?

One day here is almost 117 Earth days. - There’s a massive asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids, as you know, aren’t Earth’s best friends. - Jupiter usually holds them together with its strong gravity, but from time to time, they break free and start moving toward the Sun. - Mars also has gravity to boast and acts somewhat like a slingshot that speeds up asteroids in the direction of Earth. - Jupiter weighs 3 times more than all its neighboring planets combined! - With its massive gravitational force, Jupiter has protected Earth from asteroids and other space debris over the past 4½ billion years! - The sun’s gravitational pull is sending all that stuff toward the inner planets, and that includes Earth! There will also be some small changes in the orbits of other planets, but that would be some thousands of years later. - It’s time for Saturn. You can’t mistake it for any other planet thanks to those gorgeous rings! Scientists say they’ll disappear one day as Saturn’s immense gravity pulls them down in an icy rain. - Uranus is massive as well, the 3rd largest planet in the solar system. - Without Neptune’s gravitational pull keeping things stable, orbits are crossing, and celestial bodies are crashing into each other! - What about the Moon, though? Oh, my! What just happened to the Earth’s axis? It’s so tilted, even more than it was before! The weather down there has gone wild too - there are no more seasons at all, and new ice ages are on their way! - The day now lasts only 6 to 12 hours because there’s no more pull of the moon to slow down the Earth’s rotation. There are no more lunar or solar eclipses to watch. - It looks like out of all the planets in your sun’s complex system, only Jupiter’s disappearance would be a major problem for Earth. So I guess it’s true what they say: the solar system really is a delicate and harmonious balance!

What Would Happen If You Swallowed a Scorpion
What Would Happen If You Swallowed a Scorpion
22 days ago
You’ve been lost in the desert for days, and you know that you desperately need something to eat. You drag yourself to the weak shade of a straggly tree and out from under a rock crawls…a scorpion. Yum! Wait, you can’t believe you’re considering it… but how bad could it be? Scorpions are packed full of protein-just what you need! How hard can they pinch? And how venomous are these things? The least of your worries are the claws or pincers. Scorpions can pinch, but you should be more worried about the poisonous stinger. A sting is way more painful-and dangerous-than a pinch. Other videos you might like: What If You Were the Last Person on Earth usa-video.net/7uGAINMAiL0-video.html& What If You Stopped Sleeping for a Week? usa-video.net/XFCdyi3gUFk-video.html& What If You Swallowed the Most Venomous Spider usa-video.net/Pt75hYV49aw-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: How to catch a scorpion 1:34 Can you actually swallow it? 3:18 When scorpions ARE a good option 4:21 How to cook a scorpion 4:43 The versatile delicacy 5:40 If you do get stung, what should you do? 6:44 Watch out for the bark scorpion! 7:27 #scorpion #whatif #brightside SUMMARY: - There are over 1,500 species of scorpions, but you’re in the desert, so you’re probably dealing with the Common Desert Scorpion. - It’s a brownish-yellow color, and it might have brown hairs on it. This scorpion uses those hairs to pick up vibrations from the air and ground to find food. - To catch one, though, you’re going to have to wait until dark. Why?? Most scorpions glow under a UV light! Luckily, you have one. - Next, you need to set a trap. Around the perimeter of the rock, or near the holes, dig a hole large enough to set a cup in, and pack the sand tight around the opening. - It’s best to remove the stinger and venom gland; if you don’t, the scorpion would try to sting you all the way down. - But if this really was a survival situation, scorpions ARE a good option. The legs are surprisingly meaty and, like lobster, the best meat is in the tail and pincers! - After you catch your scorpion, you’re somehow able to start a fire, and decide to cook it. This is much safer. - Once the scorpion has an even brown color, it’s ready to eat! It should have a nice crunchy texture. - In some countries, scorpion is actually a versatile delicacy! Cooked scorpions are served as street food, and make a nice soup! - Scorpions aren’t just found in remote deserts; they’re common in hot, dry places like Arizona or parts of Australia, and they can wander into your home! - If you’re stung, look for symptoms of an allergic reaction, like a rash or hives. You’ll probably have some swelling and itchiness, so put some ice on it. - A scorpion sting doesn’t usually cause a lot of problems for most people, unless you have a serious allergy to the venom. - If you live in the Southwest US-states like Arizona, Texas, and Nevada-watch out for the bark scorpion! They’re brown with a darker back, and up to 3 inches long. - If you think you’ve been stung by a bark scorpion, it’s best to just go to the emergency room.

What If Your Weight Was Just 2 Lbs (1 Kg)
What If Your Weight Was Just 2 Lbs (1 Kg)
22 days ago
Imagine that you weigh just 1 pound. You'd feel very light, but life would become much harder. Tapping “likes” on photos would take much more than just tapping. You’ve been scrolling Instagram feed, but it feels like you’ve run 6 miles on a treadmill. You leave the apartment and take the stairs because the elevator simply won't work if you weigh less than 30 pounds. The weather outside better be warm and without strong wind. Otherwise, it may blow you away. And you better turn off vibration on your phone. With your mass, it will be tantamount to a minor earthquake. Other videos you might like: What If You Were the Last Person on Earth usa-video.net/7uGAINMAiL0-video.html& What If You Stopped Showering for a Year? usa-video.net/ckqAkbPl-e4-video.html& What If You Swallowed the Most Venomous Spider usa-video.net/Pt75hYV49aw-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Light life 0:27 Weighing 1 pound, you can... 2:05 What will be completely impossible for you 2:25 Very light life 2:53 The lightest person on Earth 5:14 Things that can happen to your weight 5:40 How much will you weigh on other planets? 7:07 #whatif #yourweight #brightside SUMMARY: - On average, a person eats 3.3 pounds of food per day, and about 60 tons of food in a lifetime. With your wee weight, don't rush to fill the fridge, because all you need to stay full all day is a glass of milk and a couple of corn flakes. - However, if you do fall, you won’t be hurt, because due to the small weight, the pulling force will act differently on you. - At music concerts, you can easily reach the stage, running over the heads of other spectators. - To type something on a computer keyboard, you’ll have to slam it with your fist, and to play the piano, you’ll have to walk on the keys. - Even a slight pressure of water from the shower will stamp you to the bottom of the tub. - What if we become even lighter? Say, 1 oz? You can forget about the stairs and the elevator. Go out the window, because if you fall from a height of even 10,000 feet, you will land unharmed. - Moreover, your weight is just a little more than that of... the soul. Indeed, according to research by Dr. MacDougall, the weight of the human soul is 0.7 oz. - Any insect is dangerous for you. And the flap of the butterfly wing will be equivalent to the wind from a powerful fan. - Now imagine that if every person on Earth weighed 1 oz, then the weight of all of the people would be 198 thousand tons! It's like 4 "Titanics" or 100 Statues of Liberty! - The weight of the lightest person on Earth was recorded in the 19th century in Mexico. Lucia Zarate's weight was only 4.6 pounds. - And the heaviest person also happened to be a resident of Mexico - Juan Pedro Franco with a weight of 1,300 pounds. - Did you notice that it is much easier to slim down in summer than in winter? This happens because the human body specifically stores as much fat as possible in order to survive the cold. - Not only the level of physical activity and the number of calories consumed can change the mass of our body. Stress does a great job too. - In addition, excess pounds may appear because of a lack of sleep. If you don’t get enough shut-eye, the body doesn't generate energy and stresses out. - The mass of our body, in fact, determines the force with which we are attracted to the Earth. The larger the mass, the stronger the attraction. - You’ll be the lightest on Pluto - there your weight will only be 9 pounds. - But there are places in our galaxy where gravity is millions of times greater than on our planet. These places are called neutron stars.

Why Car Windows Have Little Black Dots
Why Car Windows Have Little Black Dots
22 days ago
Every now and then, you get stuck in traffic. So what do you do? You stare blankly at your windshield, right. And you probably notice the little black dots around the edges. Ever wondered what those are for? But black dots aren’t the only part of your car that might have you wondering, “What on Earth is that for?” Since you’re still looking at your windshield, did you notice that little line with an arrow pointing down and AS1 written on it? Or what about the black lines going across the back window and that little snowflake on your dashboard? Let's figure out! Other videos you might like: 11 Simple Tricks to Protect Your Car in Winter usa-video.net/fdDZGPiLqr8-video.html If You See This On Your Car, Don't Touch It And Ask for Help! usa-video.net/8yCgpCnXyUc-video.html 7 Tricks That Can Make Your Car Last Longer usa-video.net/8Qsx3Gy1-d0-video.html TIMESTAMPS: The purpose of black dots 0:28 The AS Line 2:16 Lines on the Rear Window 3:04 The Snowflake Light 3:51 Gas Tank Locator 4:35 Drowsiness Detector 5:24 Stability Control 6:03 Ceiling Handles 6:29 Conversation Mirror 6:59 Fully Customizable Icons 7:29 🚘 Find extra storage spaces in your car! 🚘 7:55 #cars #driving #brightside SUMMARY: - The dots come out of the black band that goes around the window. That band is called the frit. It's the ceramic paint that protects the sealant holding your windshield in place. - They make a nice gradient transition from the black frit to the clear window. This gradient is also a safety feature. - The black dots are there to even out the heat and minimize optical distortion. Without them, the windshield would deform. - Those black dots above the rearview mirror have another important function: they help protect your eyes from the sun while you're driving. - AS1 means that the glass should let in no less than 75% of the light. The line and arrow mean “from this point and downward.” S - Have you ever noticed a little snowflake light up on your dashboard? This is the Frost or Freeze Warning, and it lights up automatically to inform you that the temperature outside has dropped so much that the roads are likely to freeze. - Gas tank locator tells you which side the tank is on! By the way, there are no strict regulations as to which side the tank should be on. - Drowsiness detector does exactly what it says: if the car “feels” that you’ve been on the road for too long or you keep slowly drifting out of your lane, then this indicator will come on. - When sensors decide your vehicle is about to spin out or isn't turning far enough, a little skidding car icon lights up on the dashboard. - The original purpose of ceiling handles was to help you get in and out of the car. - In most mini-vans and some crossover SUVs, you can pull down a convex mirror from a special compartment in front of your rearview mirror. It helps you keep an eye on the kids, pets, or just passengers in the back seats without taking your eyes off the road for a second longer than needed.

Why In-Flight Maps Show Sunken Ships
Why In-Flight Maps Show Sunken Ships
23 days ago
Hey, here’s a fun fact to tell your family around the dinner table: there are about 3 million shipwrecks in oceans all over the world! Ok, don’t lead with that one… But did you know why certain airlines show their location on the in-flight map! That seems a little odd, so why would they do it? First of all, we should always remember these events because they affected so many lives and likely changed the course of history! Plus, some ships not only have historical value but ecological importance too! If a vessel is under the water long enough to turn into a reef, the area can become rich with biodiversity, thus warranting protection.

This ship went down in history for carrying the most massive gold cup ever discovered. - SS Central America sank near the coast of the Carolinas because of a hurricane in 1857, but it wasn’t found until 1988. All the recovered gold was valued between $100-150 million. - The first-ever sunken ship expedition on record was found by Greek divers in 1900. It was filled with glass, pottery, and statues. - Many of the passengers on board the Titanic were incredibly wealthy people. The collection of gold, silver, diamonds, and pricey artifacts it carried surpass the $300-million mark. - The Whydah Gally sank in 1717 but wasn’t discovered until 1984. Precious artifacts are still being recovered, and they include jewelry, cannons, and coins. - The Atocha went down off the coast of the Florida Keys in 1622.

Why Buses Open Doors on Railroad Tracks
Why Buses Open Doors on Railroad Tracks
23 days ago
Before it became law, school buses didn’t have to open their doors at railroads. Sure, they stopped to check for an oncoming train. But when visibility is low, say, in fog or during a snowstorm, that method can prove dangerously ineffective. Everything changed in the 1930s, but the situation still wasn’t ideal. Originally, a student was assigned as a “lookout” during each ride. They’d get off the bus once it stopped and look both ways down the railroad crossing. This continued until it was decided that it was too big a responsibility put on these young volunteers’ shoulders.

By opening the door AND their side window, a bus driver is better able to hear if a train is coming. - Besides coming to a full stop 5 to 15 feet before the crossing (plus opening the door and window), bus drivers must turn off anything that creates distracting sounds, including the radio and fans. - White reflects the sun’s heat better, so it keeps the inside of the bus 10° cooler. - The dark tint of the windows blocks a lot of sunlight from getting in, and it retains interior heat in the winter! - Most buses don’t have power steering. This system normally helps the driver use less force to turn the wheels. Buses don’t have it because there’s always the risk that it could fail. - So far, 8 have passed laws requiring school buses to have seatbelts. Occasionally, individual school districts have the freedom to decide whether to implement them. - There are currently about 427,000 school buses in America alone! - If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own big yellow bus, you can go to eBay now and purchase one for about $3,000. - An average school bus can reach a max of 65 mph (although local speed limit laws for them are usually much lower!). - The largest bus in the world is the Neoplan Jumbocruiser. They stopped production in 1992, but the jumbo-sized coach didn’t disappoint! - The first buses were pretty much horse-drawn farm wagons in the late 1800s. The carriage was labeled “Public School” and it transported children that lived far away. (Most kids still walked to school at that time.) - According to the American School Bus Council, buses save an estimated $7.7 billion every year! - Buses also help our environment. If every child in a community rode the bus to school, it would save more than 2 billion gallons of fuel! - One education report found that students who rode the bus were much less likely to miss school. - There are perks to being a school bus driver! On field trips, they’re sometimes gifted free entrance to those destinations.

Why There Is a Leap Day in February
Why There Is a Leap Day in February
24 days ago
Have you ever wondered where leap years come from? Where do they get those extra hours that add up to a whole day? And what if you’re born on a leap day? A year is the period of time it takes the Earth to make a full circle around the Sun. The most accurate calculations say that our planet finishes its rotation after 365 days, 5 hours, and 48 minutes. Each year, 5 hours and 48 minutes are uncounted, and when 4 years pass, these hours and minutes add up to an extra day. But the calculations weren't always so exact.

Every 2 years they would add an extra month of 22 days to it. - The year with an extra day was called “Bis Sextus” which means “the second sixth” in Latin. - In ancient Rome, they celebrated the New year on March 1, which is why they added the leap day to the end of February. - Astronomers noticed that the spring equinox happened much earlier than March 21 - the date put in the calendar. - Clearly it was necessary to correct the Julian calendar, and in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII did so by having astronomers cut down the number of leap years. - If you happened to be born on a leap day, you overcame the odds of 1 in 1461. - In the 18th century, a famous German moralist wrote an essay called “Consolations for the Unfortunates Born on the 29th of February”. He suggested a detailed scheme of how they should celebrate their birthday each year. - In the 19th century, an interesting marriage tradition became popular. Usually, men had to kneel down on one knee to propose to a woman. But in a leap year, women could propose to men. - Leap years were also chosen to hold one of the main global sports events - the Olympic games. - If you get a fixed salary each year, you'll get stiffed in a leap year. You just have to work one day for free!

We, humans, are born with an innate curiosity. Most of the questions people search start with the word "why"! Why is the sky blue? Why do birds stand on one leg? Why are manholes round? Do you know, for example, why flamingoes are pink? Or why sunsets on Mars are blue? Or why cats are afraid of cucumbers? (Btw, do NOT try to scare a cat friend with cucumbers.

I Did Murph Workout for 30 Days, Here's How My Body Changed
I Did Murph Workout for 30 Days, Here's How My Body Changed
24 days ago
A Crossfit workout consists of much more intense circuit training, which focuses on the whole body instead of just one part. If you've ever visited the gym regularly, then you know that some days are “leg” days, others are “arm” days and so on. With Crossfit, you use almost every muscle you have during each session. A 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and a 1-mile run again. That's what the Murph workout consists of. Sound tough? Absolutely! But that's the reason why I decided to do it for 30 days in a row. Challenge accepted!

The first changes in my body 5:27 Day 21. The turning point 5:52 Day 30. Did I achieve my goal? 6:29 My results 💪 6:54 #crossfit #MurphWorkout #brightside SUMMARY: - If I were a fitness noob, I’d never even think about going through this challenge. Because it can be dangerous for your health. - Don’t work out on an empty stomach. Your body needs fuel for a good performance. - Don’t try to sprint the first mile. It’s your warm-up, so don’t waste all your energy on it. - Don’t forget about breaks. Have a 30-second rest between reps. Halfway through the workout, take 3-4 minutes to wipe off the sweat and drink some water. - Being in pretty good shape, running the first mile was easy peasy. After that, I went through 20 sets that consisted of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, and 15 squats each. - I realized that I forgot about one important thing - stretching. As you probably know, it helps with post-workout soreness. - I guess I could say that the first week went smooth. I mean, of course, I still felt unbelievably exhausted after each session. But I was happy that I wasn’t tempted to give up. - Halfway through my ordeal, I noticed the first changes in my body. You see, I work at the office and must wear shirts and ties. And when I put on my favorite shirt after the workout, I realized it was too tight on me. - The beginning of the third week was the turning point in my challenge. I guess my body was just mad at me because I put it through such strenuous training without a single day of rest. - The last workout was the most satisfying one I’ve ever had. The pain and tiredness didn’t even bother me. I guess I can chalk this up as a victory. - I got way stronger. Also, my body became more defined. Especially the lats on my back! I didn’t take measurements, but I’m pretty sure my back got wider. - But the most important changes were in my mind. I can’t remember the last time I was this proud of myself. - I’m so grateful for this difficult but rewarding experience that I decided to trade in my gym membership for the Murph workout every day.

14 Unbeatable Records No One Is Able to Repeat
14 Unbeatable Records No One Is Able to Repeat
25 days ago
People are fascinating, it seems like we can’t tolerate any boundaries. We love to push the limits somehow. This striving for the extraordinary makes a few of us look for records to break. But some world records seem to be unbeatable! Some are just impossible to surpass, while others you wouldn’t even want to challenge as they’re simply too weird. One 69-year-old woman from South Korea, became a local celebrity and symbol of perseverance. All she did was pass a driving test. On her 960th try. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always feel good to be a record holder. Charles Osborne learned it the hard way, since he was the man who had hiccups for 68 years straight and without any relief...

Yet the record wasn’t set there but 1,307 ft away where Matt found himself almost absolutely unharmed a couple of minutes later. - There aren’t many daredevils out there who would try to beat a record Tom Bagnall set on his jet-propelled go-kart. In 2018, the British engineer sped up to 112 mph in a small car that is in no way suited for such speed. - It would be great if no one would have to fight with an 80 ft high wave with nothing at their side but a surfboard. This is what Rodrigo Koxa, a Brazilian surfer, did in November of 2018 in Nazare, Portugal. - But the record for the most dice stacked on a cat’s paw belongs to LC Siew and his loyal cat Bibi from Malaysia, and was set on June 18, 2017. - What do you think a priest could do in his spare time? For a Canadian pastor of St Paul’s Lutheran Church Kevin Fast, it’s tugging enormous vehicles using nothing more than the power of his own muscles. - Radhakant Bajpai - the man with the longest ear hairs. According to him, he used to tell to people around him that his hair would one day become a great achievement. - Charles Osborne's hiccups first started in 1922, when he was 29-years-old. His hiccups were also quite frequent - 40 times per minute, and were only reduced when he was lucky enough to fall asleep, although he still hiccupped 20 times per minute. - Rolf Buchholz started adding body modifications when he was only a kid with small tattoos and piercing. Now he is 59 years old and has whopping 516 body modifications total. - Adam Hegyi is one of the best Doom players - the game that gave new life to speedrunning. In 1998 he became the one to fully go through level called Phobos Anomaly on highest difficulty without any hacks or glitches used. - Throughout the history of traditional sports, there was never a boxer who would’ve beaten legendary American boxer Archie Moore in a number of knockouts. He was able to do 131 KOs in his career! - Rocky Marciano is the 6th greatest heavyweight boxer of all time and the only boxer in history who wasn’t ever defeated. He fought 49 times and won them all with 43 knockouts. - On November 24th, 1960 famous basketball player Wilt Chamberlain did the impossible: 55 rebounds in a single game - his Philadelphia Warriors versus Boston Celtics.

Never Use Your Phone When Pumping Gas
Never Use Your Phone When Pumping Gas
25 days ago
The average person spends about 4 hours a day on their phone. That means in a single week, our eyes are glued to the screen for over an entire day! While there’s nothing wrong with a little screen time every now and then, there are some places where your phone should stay in your pocket… Have you ever been texting your friends as you got in the car and forgot you left your coffee on the roof? Imagine something like that, and you might have an idea why so many gas stations have signs up warning customers to stay off their phones as they’re pumping gas. Also, some people believe the device can shoot out radio waves or sparks and catch the gas on fire? Let's find out if that's true! Other videos you might like: 10 Driving Hacks That'll Make You Spend Less On Gas usa-video.net/XMfJ0FCzttg-video.html& 7 Driving Habits That Ruin Your Car and Drain Your Wallet usa-video.net/Ivkiks3wypY-video.html What Will Happen to Us Before 2025 usa-video.net/J2vHbuGsxxs-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Can your phone shoot out sparks? 😮 0:32 What if you damaged a nozzle? 1:01 Mobile phones on aircraft 2:52 Why it was a major concern in the 1990s 4:02 Smartphone use in hospitals 6:53 #smartphones #staysafe #brightside SUMMARY: - They put these signs up to keep distracted drivers from pulling away from the pump with the nozzle still attached! When that happens, you risk gas leaking out all over the place, and then there’s the chance of it lighting up. - Fortunately, this isn’t as much of a threat as it perhaps used to be. Most modern gas pumps feature breakaway nozzles that will seal the pump if they’re pulled on too hard. ] - Either way, the driver, or at least their insurance company, is still responsible for any equipment they break. If the driver’s lucky, they’ll only need to pay for the breakaway mechanism to be replaced. - Most airlines require you to switch your phone to airplane mode. The signals produced by wireless devices can interfere with the plane’s electronics. - This phone interference isn’t too much of a problem anymore thanks to modern technology, but it was a major concern in the 1990s. - Devices from that era were notorious for their ability to interfere with nearby electronics, and that was a risk airlines weren’t willing to take. - There’s also the issue of radio waves interfering with a plane’s communications. Again, it’s nothing too dramatic. - The third reason why you’re asked to turn off your phone on the plane has to do with your wireless carrier. - Cell towers were designed around some basic assumption about where their users are going to be located. Thousands of feet in the air close to the speed of sound was not one of them. - The good news is, these risks are all fairly remote, and there’s never been a major accident caused by someone using their phone on a plane. - Studies have shown that electronic devices can tamper with some of the more sensitive hospital equipment. - The scientists concluded that 3 ft was far enough away to be safe. Although, they do recommend keeping mobile phones out of the room entirely just to be on the super safe side!

How Fluoroscopy (X-Ray) Works
How Fluoroscopy (X-Ray) Works
26 days ago
A hundred years ago an opportunity to literally look through a person would seem crazy to scientists and doctors. In fact, the father of X-rays, German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen, discovered them by accident. But when he was offered to patent his invention, he burst out laughing. He was skeptical about X-rays as he saw no sphere where they could be used. Despite his own attitude towards his discovery, it made a sensation in the scientific community, and the units to measure the amount of X-rays were named after him -- Roentgen.

As a result of this, there appears an X-ray. - The harder the material is, the slower they will move. That’s why human bones slow down X-rays much more than soft tissues that are 70% water. - In fact, X-ray pictures are photo negatives, that’s why lighter spots are called “shadows”. - On November 8, 1895, Roentgen stayed in his laboratory till late at night. When he was going to leave and turned off the light and all the devices he noticed that a bottle with transparent liquid in one of the corners of the laboratory started shining with a green light. - He got interested in an unusual effect and started researching his casual discovery. - His hand also got under the strange ray. What Roentgen saw shocked him - he saw the shade of his hand’s bones! He literally was looking through his hand. - When he was offered to patent his invention, he burst out laughing. He was skeptical about X-rays as he saw no sphere where they could be used. - He was the first scientist in history to receive a Nobel prize in physics but he never patented his invention and granted it to people. - More than a hundred years have passed since X-rays were discovered in 1895, but it is still considered one of the most serious breakthroughs in medicine. - It was not until the second half of the 20th century that X-ray technology was considered not totally safe as it exposes you to radiation. Its effect is different in different body parts. - The dose of stomach and intestine X-rays is equal to what you can get in 3 years of your common life. - The Sun is the greatest source of radiation that tries to get to us from space. - The most unusual area where X-rays are used now is expert evaluation of the authenticity of art pieces. This method was used for the first time 70 years ago and is still the most reliable one. - X-rays are now widely used in archeology too. When they found scrolls in Pompeii, they were so fragile that any attempt to unfold them would ruin them forever. - But X-rays helped to read the text written inside the scrolls without unfolding them!

What If All People Stopped Working for a Day
What If All People Stopped Working for a Day
26 days ago
What a wonderful feeling when you know that tomorrow is your day off and you don’t have to go anywhere. But stop and think -- what if all the people on the planet quit working and everyone took a day off at the same time? Sounds cool, but it sure wouldn't lead to anything good. Okay, so you wake up in the morning after a good night’s sleep. The alarm didn't go off because you don’t have to go anywhere. You're ready to take a shower, so you turn the handle and… dirty water comes flowing out. The water stops with a 'clunk', and then bursts out with such intense pressure that your faucet breaks. The fact is that there's no one to regulate the filtration and pressure of the water. And this is just the beginning.

Short circuits and power outages are widespread throughout the city. - You notice that all the trash cans are full. And there are more and more such piles every minute throughout the city. - Without many other options, you decide to spend some time with friends, but your texts won't go through because the internet and all the cell towers are down, basically leaving all of humanity without communication. - The production of everything has come to a stand-still all over the world. Hospitals, fire departments, and police forces aren't working. - But speaking of that, the whole world’s money circulation has stopped for the day. The planet’s economy is frozen, and all financial institutions have lost a day of revenue. - City lights, neon signs, shop windows are off. All the night clubs are closed. - The next day, the whole planet suffers from the consequences of the previous 24 hours: long lines in supermarkets, crowds of people in the subway, crowded hospitals, traffic jams on the roads. - But the worst part is that your internet service providers still aren't working, because the network operators are trying to restore the web. - Automation is growing daily, and people are increasingly replaced by robots and artificial intelligence. - According to a study by American economists, by 2033, jobs will be reduced by 47% in the United States. - In the Chinese city of Harbin, there's a restaurant where the entire staff of waiters, dishwashers, and cooks are robots.

Why School Buses Always Have White Roofs
Why School Buses Always Have White Roofs
26 days ago
Ever ridden on a school bus? The most prominent thing about them (at least in the U.S.) is that they’re yellow. But their roofs are usually a different color - white. So why is that? Let's figure out! By the way, while the iconic yellow school buses are common around the world there are school buses that are anything but ordinary. And today, we will talk about them too! For example, almost 50% of the Netherlands’ population rides a bike every day to go to work. So the government came up with the idea of a bus for kids ages 4 to 12 that will carry them to school the same way. This bus can fit a driver, 8 students who must pedal, and 3 other students who can sit on a bench in the back. Other videos you might like: Why School Buses Are Yellow usa-video.net/NKeEfLiXhJ4-video.html& How to Choose a Safe Seat in 7 Types of Transport usa-video.net/qF4bRUNbeLo-video.html& 14 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On usa-video.net/uq7mztW1knU-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Reason #1 0:18 Reason #2 1:15 Reason #3 1:30 Unusual school buses: - Monster Truck 1:50 - Pikachu Bus 2:28 - Rickshaw Bus 3:06 - School Yellow Boat 3:36 - Topsy-turvy Bus 4:14 - Bicycle Bus 4:37 Other weird modes of public transport: - The suspension monorail 5:24 - Moving footpath 5:46 - Maglev Train 6:19 - Toboggan 6:53 - Gotham Air 7:21 #buses #schoolbus #brightside SUMMARY: - The white roof of a bus makes the temperature inside drop an average of 10 degrees during warm seasons and only 3 to 4 degrees in wintertime. - Besides, in the case of an emergency, a bus will be noticed faster by a rescue helicopter. - Finally, not painting the roof the same yellow color as the rest of a bus is just cheaper, since the material most bus manufacturers use is already white. - An Osaka kindergarten bus design was inspired by one of the most famous anime characters ever - Pikachu. Actually, using anime characters for modifying school buses is pretty common for Japan. - Imagine a metal box secured to a bike and you’ll get an idea of what a rickshaw is. This mode of transportation is still used for school children in different parts of India. - Topsy-turvy runs on vegetable oil, it tours the whole country to educate kids about eco-friendly alternatives and explain to them how important it is to look for renewable energy sources. - The bike can go as fast as 10 miles per hour, and there’s also a motor installed that helps it get uphill, or when kids feel too tired to pedal. - The suspension monorail is the oldest electric elevated railway with hanging cars. It started operating in 1901. - If you’re ever in Hong Kong, you’ll appreciate the world’s longest outdoor escalator that connects the city's central district with the higher-lying residential neighborhoods. - Shanghai boasts one of the fastest trains in the world. The Maglev - short for “magnetic levitation” - runs at a speed of 267 miles per hour and covers 21 miles in only 8 minutes. - A toboggan is a wicker basket attached to two wooden runners that glide on greased up rags. It’s one of Madeira, Portugal’s most famous attractions, and takes tourists for a 1-mile journey down a curvy road. - In a hurry to get to JFK or Newark Airports from Manhattan island? Then take a helicopter ride! The helicopter service, Gotham Air, launched in 2015 and allows its clients to save tons of time.

Why There Is Light on Earth But Not in Space
Why There Is Light on Earth But Not in Space
27 days ago
If you’re not a morning person, then you’d probably love living on the moon or out in space! The whole “lack of oxygen” thing aside, a ‘round-the-clock night sky sounds pretty tempting! But why is there so much light on Earth, but almost none once you leave our planet? You might think that it’s light during the day and dark at night because the Earth spins on its axis, and the Sun illuminates either hemisphere. That’s part of the reason, but it’s more complicated than that. Our star shines on the Moon too, but the sky above it is always black! Other videos you might like: 20+ Incredible Space Facts That Aren't In Textbooks usa-video.net/FfwAKqNM7U0-video.html& The Real Size of the Universe (Even a Child Understands) usa-video.net/T3T08WOlFk4-video.html& A Potentially Habitable Super Earth Has Been Discovered usa-video.net/6dUYK41ElO0-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why is the sky above the Moon is always black? 0:25 Why don’t other stars shine with blazing light at night? 1:42 When we look at the sky, we glance into a very distant past 🌟 3:33 Why don’t less distant stars shine as bright as the Sun? 4:09 Where the Big Bang comes into play 6:03 How do we know these black areas exist at all? 6:45 #space #planets #brightside SUMMARY: - The atmosphere surrounding our Earth is full of dust, dirt, gases, and water droplets - which all act like tiny mirrors and reflect the sunlight. - If you find yourself on the Moon, where there’s no atmosphere, the sky will be black. You’ll be able to see the stars even when the sun is blazing on the surface during the lunar day. - In the early 19th century, German astronomer Wilhelm Olbers suggested that the reason the sky is dark at night was a dusty veil that hid most of the stars from us. - Thanks to our fancy powerful telescopes, we now know that it takes light billions of years to get to us from the farthest stars. - Modern telescopes can show us that the light started its journey to the Earth about 10 billion years ago. The more powerful telescopes get, the further back in time we can see. - But don’t all those distant stars give at least some noticeable light on this planet? It’d be like switching on a ton of tiny halogen light bulbs. They’re not as bright as one big LED bulb, but they do give off part of its light. - Space might be empty compared to the Earth’s atmosphere, but there are a lot of gases out there. They move around, form clouds, and serve as a sort of veil hiding most of the light in the Milky Way. - The theory states that the Universe was born in a Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago. Since that time, everything has been moving away from the point where it all began. - Sources of light also move away and spread out, which means space is getting darker, and the number of black areas is growing. - Astronomers think that most of the matter in the universe is invisible, and it looks like black emptiness to the human eye. - If you remember the electromagnetic spectrum from back in school, you’ll know that visible light is just a tiny sliver of all those wavelengths and frequencies. - Red, blue, purple, yellow, orange - the whole color wheel depending on which gases make them up!

What If You Lived for Only 24 Hours
What If You Lived for Only 24 Hours
27 days ago
If we talk about the world, currently, the average life expectancy is 70 years for men and 75 years for women. That might seem like than enough time to check off all the things you have on your to-do list! But maybe there’s more to life than checking boxes. What if people only lived for 24 hours? Assuming we compress 70 years into 24 hours, then approximately 12 minutes after you’re born, you start to crawl. You figure out how to walk 18 minutes after you were born. Five minutes after you started moving not on all fours, but two legs, your mouth begins to produce coherent sounds. Yay, just 23 minutes after you saw the light of day, and you're already a speaking human!

SUMMARY: - At the age of about two hours, you set off for school. You'll have your first full-time job when you're 5 or 6 hours old, and when you're approximately 7 and a half hours old, you'll get your first apartment. - When you're 17 hours and 10 minutes old, your kids are already grown-ups and live separately. At the ripe age of 20 hours, you retire to the nearest lake to live out the remaining hours of your life in peace. - Come to think of it, that's another problem of a 24-hour-long life: you can't travel, because you don't have time for it! - You'll spend about 40 minutes reading newspapers, books, magazines, and other sources of information. - An hour and 20 minutes of your precious life will be wasted in jam-packed public transport or in traffic jams. - You'll listen to music for about 5 hours of your 24-hour-long life. - And if you exercise regularly, your workouts will take up about 24 minutes of your life. - Now, one-third of your existence, which is 8 hours, you'll spend sleeping! - Mayfly is the shortest living animal on the planet, and within 24 hours, it has to complete a full life cycle. Unfortunately, it's nothing much: being born, flying a bit, reproducing, and passing away. - A teeny marine organism called the Gastrotrich has a lifespan of about 72 hours, or 3 days. - As for the animals you don't need a magnifying glass to spot, the shortest living one is the house mouse! It lives no longer than a year. - What would the planet look like if people were immortal? The population of the planet would be so great that there would be no free space for people to live. - Analysts claim that Earth can comfortably sustain approximately 10 billion people. But if nothing changes, we'll reach this number in 17 years or so!

Who Is the Fastest Living Being in the World?
Who Is the Fastest Living Being in the World?
28 days ago
What is the average person walking speed? Actually, humans aren’t that fast. They walk at a humble average speed of 3 mph. But they're already faster than a lot of other land-inhabiting creatures. For example, insects and other bugs are fast only for their tiny sizes. Other animals with more comparable sizes to humans, like sloths, koalas, and giant tortoises, are also left far behind. Sloths live in places where it’s too risky to move fast because predators will see them. So, they move at a sluggish 0.15 mph. And giant tortoises clock out at a max of 0.3 mph. But these animals are among the slowest on our planet.

So, they move at a sluggish 0.15 mph. - And giant tortoises clock out at a max of 0.3 mph. - James is really fit, and he’s been preparing for this day his whole life. That’s why 15 mph is just a jog for him, even if it’s the average speed other people run at. - 28 mph - the fastest running speed ever recorded for a human being. Animals like elephants, squirrels, and even polar bears are stopping to catch their breath behind our speedy friend’s back. - 40 mph - that’s about the top speed he can reach on a bicycle without the help of a motor. It’s just enough to escape from all bears and canines like jackals, dogs, and wolves. - The absolute champ of top speeds on this planet - the cheetah. Sprinting through prairies at 75 mph, it’s crucial for these predators as they chase down extremely fast pronghorn antelopes. - The maximum speed James can hope to achieve without flippers is just 3 mph. That’s barely enough to swim past eels. - The boat is faster than humpback whales, sea lions, and small fish. But Jimmy Crack Corn is already wanting to up the ante. This time, he hops on a giant cruise liner. - Its deafeningly roaring engines can accelerate this metal hulk up to 35 mph, leaving behind barracudas, dolphins, and octopuses. Yeah, those eight-legged creatures can swim surprisingly fast at 25 mph! - The Peregrine Falcon can fly horizontally at an average speed of 56 mph but can bump it up to 69 mph. - There are even quicker feathered beings, like the Bald Eagle soaring through the air at 75 mph and topping at 99 when it really tries.

Are Night Flights Allowed for Helicopters?
Are Night Flights Allowed for Helicopters?
28 days ago
Imagine you’re stuck on the slopes of Mount Everest. There’s no one to help you for frozen miles around, and you can’t move for some reason. Although you’ve sent a distress signal, the night has already fallen, and you’ve lost all hope. But then, out of the cold darkness, a beam of light blinds you. It’s a rescue helicopter, coming for you at last. Despite weirdly popular opinion, this situation is possible. Tricky, granted, but rescue helicopters do fly at night. The myth about night flight operations might have appeared because of one fact: helicopters are really difficult to fly. And that’s a real problem that can preclude a chopper from flying at night. But it depends on many more factors than just poor visibility.

This also helps in different kinds of situations: rescuing people, extinguishing fires, deploying troops, or whatnot. - But despite all their advantages over airplanes, choppers have many potential dangers too, which makes flying them a risky business. - The pilot has to stay inside the machine no matter what, reducing the chances of survival in case of a crash. - Neither civil helicopters, nor emergency service ones have any special reinforcement, so they’re basically unprotected in the air. - When the air is particularly humid and the temperature freezing, ice can appear on the helicopter’s surfaces. It might seem a nuisance, but given the pretty fragile construction of these aircraft, you shouldn’t be surprised that ice may cause control issues or even crashes. - But even good weather can pose a threat, since there’s such a thing as clear air turbulence, or CAT. It’s an unpredictable condition that occurs when there are no clouds and the aircraft is flying at a higher altitude. - Sometimes rescue ops may take up to an hour, so it’s a real test of endurance and skill for the pilot. - In a helicopter, an autopilot could only be useful on long-haul flights with minimum obstacles on the way.

Why Planes Stopped Flying Half Full
Why Planes Stopped Flying Half Full
28 days ago
Airplanes may be a marvel of modern engineering, but unless you're flying first-class it isn't what most people would call glamorous. For many, the biggest problem is how crowded airliners can get. But believe it or not, there was a time when flights rarely left more than half full. How was this possible? It might be hard to believe in a world where you must book your flight months in advance, but there was a time when you could simply drive to the airport on a whim and go almost anywhere you wanted. If you were lucky, you might even get the whole row to yourself!

The solution they all came to was accessibility. - It's hard to make unlimited legroom sound bad, but all that extra space came at a price, and I mean that literally. - The average price of airfare in 1979 was about $600 in today’s money. Compare that to 2015, when the average price was only about three hundred and eighty-five dollars. - It turns out that all these extra flights were cutting into the airline's bottom line, and they were passing that markup on to you. - Two things brought an end to these halcyon days of ample knee space. The first came in the form of relaxed FAA regulations. - Free from price controls and restricted routes, costs fell as airlines struggled to undercut each other's prices. - The second significant change was a technological one. In the analog world of the 1970s, there wasn’t a whole lot companies could do to adjust prices on the fly. - Modern airlines have entire departments dedicated to writing the code that goes into determining the price of an individual seat. - Airlines have also taken to adding more seats to each plane and regularly selling more tickets than they have seats. - The side effect is that sometimes more people show up than expected, and someone ends up getting left behind. - In the year 2000, the United States was home to ten major airlines, a number that has been slowly whittled down to just four by 2017. - While the 70s may have been an excellent time for airline customers, all those extra flights weren't exactly healthy for the environment.

Why Public Toilet Seats Are Shaped Like a U
Why Public Toilet Seats Are Shaped Like a U
29 days ago
We all use it every day -the John, the Throne, the Lavatory, the Potty, the Commode, the Latrine, the Privy…the Toilet! No matter what you call it, public restrooms aren’t always the most pleasant experience; the germs, unspoken etiquette…no one likes to talk about it, it’s can be a tender subject, but, Brightsider, today’s your lucky day! You're gonna find out why public toilet seats are shaped like a U (this isn’t what they’re like at home, right?), which stalls are cleaner than others, what exactly the proper Hand-Washing technique is and many other things! Other videos you might like: Close One Eye When You Go to the Toilet at Night usa-video.net/fCxXn73JVwc-video.html& Are Public Toilets As Safe As You Think? usa-video.net/o1LHIlhR6zo-video.html& Put Vinegar Into a Toilet, and Watch What Happens usa-video.net/6dNGF9PRkBY-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why are public toilet seats shaped like a U? 0:31 Do those toilet seat covers really make it more hygienic? 1:09 Are some stalls cleaner than others? 1:40 Is it safe to take my drink with me into the stall? 2:18 What should I do with my drink if I have to GO? 2:57 What exactly is the proper Hand-Washing technique? 3:33 What if I’m loyal to my hand sanitizer? 4:20 🙂 Good-to-know tips for public bathroom etiquette 🙃 4:55 #hygiene #etiquette #brightside SUMMARY: - The reason is for hygiene purposes, to keep that part of the toilet as far from your most sensitive areas as possible, as it could have some unwanted droplets on it. - That little space in between the U-shaped seat may still have dribbles of urine on it, and it will just soak through the cover. - The outside stalls are used less frequently, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re cleaner-just because it looks clean doesn’t mean that it is. - There are over 3 million bacteria per square inch in that toilet bowl, just to give you some perspective. - It’s best to leave your drink on your desk or have a friend hold it for you. But these aren’t always an option. If you must put your drink or mug on the sink, put clean paper towels down first. - Rub the soap on top of your hands and between your fingers. Don’t forget to get under those nails! You should wash for at least twenty seconds. Rinse your hands completely and dry with a clean towel. - Make sure your hand sanitizer is at least 60% alcohol. Know that hand sanitizers don’t get rid of all types of germs. - If you’re out and you bump into someone you know in the bathroom, your first instinct might be to shake their hand or touch them with a greeting. Resist the temptation. - Keep the restroom a quiet place. Some of us have to concentrate. - Experts say that chatting at the sink while washing your hands is a no-no. They say that you should just focus on getting your hands clean and avoid eye contact. - Whenever possible, don’t pick the stall right next to somebody. Put a stall or two between you if the restroom isn’t crowded. - Say you’re standing in front of a one-person bathroom and you aren’t sure if there’s anyone inside. - It’s a little-known fact, but many public restrooms are equipped with a fan, a.k.a an exhaust fan. It will circulate the air in the bathroom, in case you aren’t able to leave it smelling fresh as a daisy.

18 House Details in the UK Foreigners Don't Understand
18 House Details in the UK Foreigners Don't Understand
29 days ago
Great Britain is a country of centuries-old traditions, and some of them might seem strange to foreigners. But the Brits aren’t in a hurry to change something just because the rest of the world does it differently. Did you know, for example, that there are separate faucets for hot and cold water in Britain? And the tap with hot water has to always be installed on the left side when it’s possible to do so. By the way, you won’t find outlets in the bathroom. British safety rules demand that you shouldn’t be able to plug something in an outlet when you’re in the water. Well, that makes sense. Other videos you might like: 21 Things in the US That Puzzle Most Foreigners usa-video.net/K1HxW5vc_lU-video.html& 25 Traditions Sound Strange to You But Totally Normal in Other Countries usa-video.net/0peld2sYu2I-video.html 10 Things That Seem Attractive in Foreign Countries usa-video.net/7Z9P9Y7BKw8-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Double faucets 0:21 Water laws 1:09 Electricity in bathrooms 1:28 Plugs 1:59 Washing machines in the kitchen 2:21 Reverse switches 2:41 Interior doors 2:55 Carpeting 3:14 Closets 3:27 Windows 3:41 Air Conditioning 4:07 Covered-up windows 4:32 Cold inside houses 5:30 Pipes on the house front 5:52 Garbage cans 6:07 Small Yards 6:44 Mail delivery 7:10 Milk doors 7:31 Bonus 7:55 #GreatBritain #UK #brightside SUMMARY: - To avoid an outbreak of listeriosis, authorities forbade mixing the hot and cold water. - The voltage in Great Britain is higher than in North America, and in order to avoid an electric shock, there are even pull-string light switchers there. They’re totally safe, no matter how damp it is. - Power outlets have an “on” switch, which is good, since you don’t have to unplug the device after charging it; simply turn off the outlet itself. - Washing machines are tucked in the kitchen, because - you guessed it, there are no outlets in the bathroom. - Switches in Britain are reverse: you need to flip them down to turn the light on and flip them up to turn it off. - Wall-to-wall carpeting can be found anywhere in the house; sometimes in the bathroom too. If you buy or rent a house, this won’t even be mentioned in the ad, there’s not usually another option. - Windows are opened either out, up, or down, but not inside. It makes sense if you have a small room, but just think about how you’d wash the windows. - There aren’t often air conditioners in British homes, since the temperature in summer doesn’t usually get too high. - The window tax, introduced in 1696, levied a tax on property owners based on the number of windows they had. - It’s usually very cold in British homes during the cold season. Heating fees are high, and the Brits prefer to wear layers of warm clothes, rather than receive huge bills. - Another detail that strikes strangers is that water and sewer pipes aren’t underground, but attached right to the front of the house. - Garbage cans stand close to the main entrance, as if they were the owners’ pride. The true reason is far more practical though: this is done for the garbage collectors' convenience. - Some British houses on the main streets of the town are only a dozen feet wide and have a super narrow backyard. But still, they cost much more than houses on side streets. - Front doors have special slots for the mail, and letters and newspapers fall right to the floor of the entry. If there’s no slot, the mail is tucked under the front door. - Old houses also have special tiny doors for milk.

Why Ships Are Red Below the Waterline
Why Ships Are Red Below the Waterline
Month ago
When’s the last time you looked at a ship? Picture a cruise ship or container ship in the harbor. Did you happen to notice that the bottom of the hull is always painted red? It’s not like you can see that snazzy paint job under the waterline, so what gives? In early times, ships were mostly made of wood. That's why sailors had to cover their hulls (the part that’s sitting in the water) with copper paint to protect the vessel from wood-eating worms, barnacles, and seaweed. It was the copper that added a red tint to the paint. But what about now?

But the hulls are still painted red to honor and maintain the old nautical tradition! - You also might’ve noticed numbers painted vertically on the side of the hull, usually toward the bow. The red background helps those stand out more. - It doesn't matter how well you protect the hull of your ship with special paint - it’ll never help you completely avoid the harmful growth of barnacles and whatnot. - You might not realize it, but almost 95% of all the world's cargo is transported by ship. - Right at this moment, at least 20 million containers are moving across the world. - Within one year, the average container ship travels the same distance as going three-quarters of the way to the moon and back. - The largest cargo ship can carry 18,000 containers with a whopping 745 million bananas inside! - Maersk has been the biggest container ship operator in the world since 1996. If you stack up just their containers alone, it would equal 7,530 Eiffel Towers. - One-third of all ship crews in the world don't have any kind of communication with the outside world when they're out at open sea. - Cruise ships often perform rescue operations. So, don't be surprised if the one you're traveling on stops to save a few fishers in desperate need of help. - Cruise ship cabins are built separately from the ship because, otherwise, there wouldn't be enough space for their construction. - Cruise ship cabin walls are made of metal, and the main reason is fire safety. - During a one-week cruise, a large ship uses 1,800 pounds of coffee, 9,000 pounds of lettuce, 45,000 eggs, and 20,000 ice cream cones! - Although there are doctors and nurses on cruise ships, if you have a dental emergency, no-one will be able to help you out. - Cruise ships consume a lot of fuel. For example, a large vessel needs about 121,000 gallons of fuel for every day it spends at sea. - The largest cruise ships have more than 2,000 crew members. On top of that, such vessels are incredibly expensive to build: they may cost more than $1 billion.

What If You Run for 24 Hours Without Stopping?
What If You Run for 24 Hours Without Stopping?
Month ago
They say that a brisk walk a few times a week can do wonders for your body. Maybe you’ve tried to boost the cardio factor by turning your walks into runs. With some work, you’d be able to build up some serious endurance. But what if you ran for an entire day? In 2015, Camille Herron set a world record by running 50 miles in about 5 and a half hours. Well, humans were built to run from an evolutionary standpoint (think of our ancestors chasing after their food) but does it mean that excessive running is healthy?

You start to “feel the burn” in your muscles 0:21 Hour 3. You lose weight 1:08 Hour 5. Your knees are in pain 1:38 Hour 8. You “hit the wall” 2:12 Hour 10. At this point, anyone would really need to stop 2:50 Hour 12. An imbalance in your pH levels 3:26 Hour 15. Are you an experienced runner? If not, don't do that! 4:02 Hour 20. You might be crying 4:34 Hour 24. No benefits 5:10 The coolest runners ever 6:25 #running #whatif #brightside SUMMARY: - Within the first 30 minutes, you’ll start burning any “bad” fat, since your body uses this and glucose from food for additional energy. While glucose is getting absorbed by your body, you’ll really start to “feel the burn” in your muscles. - If you’re running for 3 hours, you’re probably training for a marathon. An extremely fit person could complete a marathon in 3 hours (which is about 26 miles.) - If you’re training for a marathon, running 5 hours a day is a reasonable goal! A “fitness runner” could definitely finish a marathon in 5 hours. - If you ran or worked out for 8 hours a day, you would so-to-speak “hit the wall” if you aren’t getting enough calories and protein from your diet. - Unless you’ve been an experienced marathon runner for years, running 10 hours at a time is definitely excessive. If a non-runner just took off willy-nilly, we probably wouldn’t have enough endurance or muscle mass built up-we’d be very prone to injury. - Abnormal lactic acid amounts in your body can cause an imbalance in your pH levels, which tell you how acidic your blood is. Too much acid in the blood can cause serious problems, including cardiovascular issues. - A 15 hour run can seriously damage the cardiovascular and skeletal systems. When we burn all of our energy too quickly, it can cause plaque buildup in our arteries, and something called oxidative stress; this is essentially damage to your body’s cells. - After a long race, experienced runners often feel a wide range of emotions: pure exhaustion down to the soul, tears, happiness, a break in the iron-clad willpower, or a tangled-up mix of emotions. - If you run for 24 hours, all the benefits of a normal running session-increased bone density, muscle tone, increased lung capacity and endurance, elevated mood - will likely disappear. - Keep in mind, only very experienced runners that are in optimum shape can run in extreme intervals of time like these (such as an Olympian or marathon runner).

Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why
Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why
Month ago
It’s a basic thing - you want your phone fully charged in the morning so it’ll last through the entire day. And even with cutting-edge smartphones that can charge to max capacity in a matter of an hour, there’s no guarantee that you’ll remember to charge it in the morning while you’re in a sleepy daze. Advice to leave your phone unplugged during the night may seem risky. The worst fear here is that your phone will charge down while you sleep and won’t see the dawn of a new day to wake you up like you’re used to. But still, you can’t go against the word of science. Leaving your smartphone on a charger is bad for it. Other videos you might like: 15 Mistakes That Shorten the Life of Your Phone usa-video.net/0Z-pLovvqkg-video.html& Stop Using Your Phone Sitting on the Toilet usa-video.net/H_zbGb5yBtI-video.html& 10+ Reasons Your Phone Battery Dies So Fast usa-video.net/xy6zyP7ZK2Q-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Automatic switches don't solve the problem 1:20 How to choose high-quality chargers and cables 2:12 Is heat really bad for batteries? 3:32 Fully depleting the charge 4:07 A lazy battery effect 4:42 Charging a phone with a sound 6:13 Sodium instead of lithium? 6:33 How about gold batteries? 7:15 #phonebattery #charging #brightside SUMMARY: - Even though lithium-based batteries are rechargeable by nature, and made with this process in mind, they’re highly vulnerable to constant interactions with high voltage electricity, like in the outlets of your house. - There are automatic switches on your phone that’ll stop the charging process the very moment it reaches 100%. But when your phone naturally goes down to 99%, the charging will start all over again. - Good, high-quality chargers have special chips in them that prevent overcharging. So it’s advisable not to skimp on chargers - this way you won’t spend much more money on a new battery or entire smartphone too soon. - Overall, it’s always advisable to use good quality tech when it comes to something as expensive as smartphones these days. - Heat is bad for batteries. That’s why it’s so harmful to your phone if you leave it in a closed car in the middle of summer. - You’ve probably heard something about fully depleting the charge of your smartphone and then charging it to the maximum capacity. This is fair for devices from the past decade. - Any modern lithium-ion battery won’t get lazy like a cadmium based one, so you don’t have to worry about that. - Scientists and engineers promise that soon, we’ll have another kind of lithium-based battery that’ll be able to charge in a matter of minutes and last for more than one day. - One of their new ideas is to make battery chargers that can produce energy from a Wi-Fi signal. - And how about charging a phone with a sound? Using piezoelectric principals, tiny nanogenerators will be able to transform the surrounding sound to electric power. - - Scientists from Japan are in the middle of a decades-long study that will allow replacing lithium ion batteries with sodium. - Another idea is to use literal sand in batteries. Not quite literal though, as this battery will use silicon - the main component of the sand. - But for now, the best course of action is to use good quality charging equipment, keep your smartphone out of the heat, and most importantly, keep the charge in it between 30% and 90%.

What Happens in Real Life But Not in Video Games?
Month ago
Who doesn’t love video games? Some play them for hours, others for days, while others cannot even see their life without them. Every year, developers make games better. However, no matter how cool and realistic graphics they have, there are a lot of differences between video games and real life. Is your game character seriously injured? Drink the potion and everything is okay! Just caught a cold in real life - you have to sit at home and drink medications for a whole week. At speed, you get away from the police chase, the cops will never catch you! In life: “Here's a $100 fine for you. Don't break the speed limit anymore.” “Okay, I won’t.

In life: you fly on a plane for two hours and then wait for your luggage. Boring. - You can choose any clothes of any color and style in a second. Out of the game, you're spending half a day to pick trousers to go with your new cap. - You can build a city, a country, manage the economy, restore order in your civilization in a day. In real world you can’t restore order in your room. - You drive a sports car, a huge robot, a spaceship.

In a real salon, you wait for an hour and if you don’t like it, wait a couple of months until your hair grows back. - Wanna be a carpenter? A magician? Alchemist? Racer? Space cowboy? Okay, here’s your task and half an hour of time. - Tired of playing? You can pause the game, drink tea, or sleep. When problems pile up on you for real, a pause will only aggravate the situation. - Win a fight with the most dangerous villain of the 7 kingdoms. In life: "Hmm, I’d better go around this dark lane." - In a game with an interesting plot, an event happened that you did not expect. You admire this and thank the developers for the cool story. In life, just a thought of something going wrong annoys you. - Take the powder from the horn of the minotaur, the scales of the mermaid, the feather of the sphinx and the fang of a vampire. Mix it all in one pile and get a potion that makes you invisible. - You are immediately born into excellent physical shape and a beautiful body. In life, you spend years of training in the gym so that six-pack appears on your tummy. - In a video game, you go through the dungeons, jump over cliffs with lava, fight monsters, defeat the dragon and only then get the princess. - You can quickly go through the game, but life goes on. And it is much more interesting!

9 Secrets of the Statue of Liberty Most Americans Don't Know
9 Secrets of the Statue of Liberty Most Americans Don't Know
Month ago
The Statue of Liberty is one of the most (if not THE most) famous monuments in the world. Anyone visiting New York City can see her, but not everyone knows that Lady Liberty has her own secrets. One of them is - she might not even be a lady at all! Or do you know, for example, that number seven meant a lot for the Statue's creators? It's easy to notice the Statue has seven spikes on its crown, symbolizing universal liberty across the seven oceans and continents. But there are less obvious references to the number seven. Btw, you can see this monument not in NYC only!

SUMMARY: - It's really hard to picture it, but the Statue actually arrived from France on June 17, 1885, in over 300 copper pieces. The precious cargo was traveling in 214 crates on the French ship, Isère. - Then, American newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer stepped in. Even though 80% of the donations were small ones from middle-class citizens, Pulitzer managed to collect the necessary amount from over 120,000 donors. - The Statue of Liberty is made of copper, so it was originally about the same color as a penny. According to the New York Historical Society, it turned completely green because of oxidation by 1920. - The statue was originaly supposed to serve as a lighthouse for ships sailing into New York Harbor. And, two years after it arrived in the US, it actually became one. - There are 16 leaves around the torch, and the monument itself is 151 feet tall. The sum of both those digits is seven as well. Clearly, that number meant a lot for the Statue's creators. - Famous engineer Alexander Gustave Eiffel helped design the steel internal framework to keep the statue stable. It's strong enough to withstand around 600 bolts of lightning a year. - Most people are positive it's a representation of the Roman goddess of freedom, Libertas. The widely accepted story is that Bartholdi modeled her face after his mother. - Author and journalist, Elizabeth Mitchell, however, claims that the sculptor actually used his brother's face as a model! - Another theory was presented by French writer Nathalie Salmon, who claims Lady Liberty was modeled after her ancestor Sarah Salmon. - You can find a smaller Statue of Liberty, which was the original model for its big sister, in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. It's been there since 1906, after Bartholdi gave it to the Luxembourg museum for the World’s Fair of 1900.

Why Planes Can't Fly Over Messi's House
Why Planes Can't Fly Over Messi's House
Month ago
Nice cars, private jets, designer clothes, your own personal No-Fly Zone around your sprawling $7-million mansion… Ok, that might not be the case for all famous people, but it is for Argentinian soccer star Lionel Messi! His eco-friendly home is in Gava, a town that’s about 6 miles from Barcelona’s main airport El Prat. And get this: Messi’s estate is preventing the airport from expanding! Add to that the whole “planes are absolutely forbidden from flying over it” thing, and it seems like the soccer superstar is causing a lot of inconveniences!

His home happens to be within the perimeter, and one of those guidelines includes noise levels. - The airspace is restricted because the sheer volume of aircraft would interfere with the natural wildlife in the area. - “No-Fly Zones” help preserve environmentally protected areas. They’re also usually over historical heritage sites with high traffic, regions with known conflict, and sometimes other famous or important people’s houses too. - Located in Berkshire, England, Windsor Castle was once a fort built during the 11th century by William the Conqueror. It’s right up there with Buckingham Palace as far as having the status of a national treasure. - Machu Picchu is one of the most famous historical sanctuaries on this planet. As such, Peruvian authorities can’t risk disturbing the World Heritage Site or the wildlife living around it. - For Tibet, the flight restriction is all about passenger safety. The region isn’t just home to the tallest mountain in the world, the mighty Everest, it’s also covered in peaks! - Andorra is the largest country in the world that doesn’t have an airport. It is, however, home to three heliports. - Monaco also has a heliport instead of an airport. If you want to fly in by chopper, you’ll be landing at the Monaco Heliport in Fontvieille. - Keeping with its European counterparts, people living in Vatican City would need to go to Rome for their flight. Not a major inconvenience - Vatican City is located within Rome, after all! - As the largest country in the world, it might come as no surprise that all territory of Russia is sprinkled with loads of airports - 1,218 of them to be precise. - Of the country’s 1,714 air hubs, Mexico City International Airport was the busiest in 2018. They helped 47 million travelers get to and from their destination! - Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking country in South America whose territory is mostly made up of the Amazon Rainforest hosts 4,093 airports. - The United States has 14,712 airports! Specifically, the busiest one in the US is the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Hold onto your hats: just in 2018, it served over 107 million passengers!

What If Everyone on Earth Sneezed at the Same Time
What If Everyone on Earth Sneezed at the Same Time
Month ago
Have you ever thought what would happen if everyone in the world (all 7.5 billion of us!) sneezed at the exact same time? Worst case scenario, there may be some accidents on the road. After all, your eyes automatically close whenever you sneeze. Well, this worldwide “Achoo” would be pretty loud too, especially for those who happen to be at a stadium. Speaking of stadiums, you’d likely see a cloud form since one sneeze can contain up to 40,000 droplets of mucus! And all those germs, ick! Or if you’re watching TV when it happens. The news anchor would be stopped mid-sentence. This event would go down in history! People will ask each other, “Where were you on the day the whole world sneezed?” Other videos you might like: 13 Habits We Mistakenly Considered Harmless usa-video.net/OFzrw2Y_xCA-video.html& 8 Rare Features Some Unique People Have usa-video.net/Wgm8IQEs8EM-video.html& 20 Interesting Facts You're Too Lazy to Google usa-video.net/TZqFokYyluw-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Sternutation 2:28 Why sneezing is good for you 2:40 Does your heart really stop when you sneeze? 3:04 How does milk come out of your nose in a sneeze? 3:14 Why do we cover up when we sneeze? 3:31 Is it ok if I hold it in? 3:58 Why do we sneeze? 4:09 Why do some people sneeze really loud, but others are quiet? 4:36 Which type of sneezer are you ❓ 5:04 Weirdest things that make people sneeze 😮 6:55 #sneezing #funfacts #brightside SUMMARY: - Sternutation is the scientific word for sneezing. - Ever had problems with your computer only to realize restarting fixed everything? That’s what a sneeze does for your nasal cavity - it resets it! - While the rhythm of your heart certainly changes when you let out a big one, your heart doesn’t actually stop beating. - The louder the sneeze, the faster the air moves, sometimes up to 100 mph! It can also project mucus up to 5 feet away from your body! - Holding in a sneeze can damage blood vessels in your eyes and brain. - Sneezing is the brain’s way of ordering dust, dander, and pollen out of your nose. - A “photic” sneeze reflex happens when we walk outside and take a good look at our closest star or the light it projects. - Happiness, sadness, and anger are all emotions that affect our whole body, sneezing included! - Here’s a big term: gustatory rhinitis. That’s a fancy way of saying an inflammation of the glands in your nose caused by something you eat or smell. - Ready for another big term? Peripheral vasoconstriction! It sounds like some magical spell, (expectorate mucusium!) but it basically means most of the heat in your body transfers to your core when it’s cold. - If you find yourself sneezing in the shower, the fragrance in your shampoo, conditioner, or body wash may be the cause. - Dark chocolate triggers the same sneeze in about one quarter of the population. - We all have a TRPA1 receptor on our tongue. When we drink a bubbly beverage, the carbon dioxide activates that receptor. When many receptors are switched on at once, our body produces more saliva and lets out a sneeze or sometimes a cough.

95 Floors in 43 Seconds in the Fastest Elevator
95 Floors in 43 Seconds in the Fastest Elevator
Month ago
n 1857, back when it was rare to come across a building that was more than 7 stories high, the Otis Elevator Company rocked the world by installing the first-ever commercial passenger elevator at 488 Broadway in New York City. It moved at an unimaginable speed for its time -40 feet per minute! Doesn’t sound like much, but remember - this was way before cars came around! A lot has changed since then. Life’s getting faster, buildings are getting taller, and you can no longer impress anyone with an elevator that travels 6 times slower than the average person walks! So, companies designing and constructing skyscrapers must think over their vertical transportation systems.

It was opened and recorded in the Guinness World Records in September 2019. It sky-rockets from the ground to the 95th floor in just 43 seconds! - Think you could handle riding in an elevator moving almost highway speeds at 47 miles per hour? - Most standard elevators go up to a maximum of about 20 mph. - There are special rollers in four corners of the cabin to absorb unpleasant vibrations. The brakes are made of heat-resistant materials that’ll ensure it stops smoothly even in an emergency. - Most skyscrapers have an advanced elevator system. It’s not just one straight shot from bottom to top but a complex network with stops and transfers, sort of like the subway! - The Gateway Arch. The futuristic elevator pods move up and down the “legs” of this 630-foot stainless steel construction that was designed by Finnish architect Eero Saarinen. - The Bailong Elevator. The name of this elevator that reaches a height of 1,070 feet on the side of a cliff translates as the Hundred Dragons Elevator. It was opened in 2002, and you can spot fantastic views through its glass doors. - AquaDom. Would you like to travel between floors in the middle of an 82-foot-tall cylindrical aquarium full of over 260,000 gallons of water and 1,500 fish? - The Falkirk Wheel is the only rotating boat elevator in the world, lifting vessels 79 feet from one canal into another. - “Elevador Lacerda”. This one isn't just an elevator but a legit means of transportation connecting the “Lower” city to the “Upper” one. It transports over 30,000 people a day, traveling to a height of 236 feet in 38 seconds. - SkyView, Ericsson Globe. At 279 feet tall and 361 feet in diameter, Ericsson Globe is the largest spherical building in the world. You can see a concert or sports game inside (probably hockey!), and take a ride in the glass elevators on the outside.

What If You Played Video Games for 1 Day Non-Stop
What If You Played Video Games for 1 Day Non-Stop
Month ago
Hey guys! Are any of you gamers? I'm not, but there was a time when I could sit all night long, playing some new and awesome game. And it’s then I wondered completely out of the blue: what would happen if I played for 24 hours straight? You think I didn’t check it? Fat chance! So, I planned my game day for Saturday so that I’d have no work to do, could sleep until well rested for the event, and would have another day to recover after it. I bought a dozen Red Bulls (big ones, not those tiny little cans) and made sure I had enough coffee at home to keep me going. Then I fixed my armchair so that it was a bit less comfy than I’m used to - I believed it would help me not fall asleep too...

I launched it and off I went into the world of might and magic. - The first three hours flew by like one minute. I didn’t feel hungry or thirsty, or tired, for that matter, just nothing. - After seven hours I remembered that I had legs. Nature called, and I tried to stand up, but almost failed. - Anyway, after no more than 5 minutes I returned to my game. Three more hours passed, I had another couple of buns and my first energy drink of the evening. - Two more hours in, and I popped open another Red Bull. Not that I had to energize myself, but I just needed a distraction. - I don’t really know what was happening to me after all those hours of playing, but once again, care I did not. All that mattered was that I was going to collect that legendary set of armor whatever it took. - Three more hours and two more cans of energy drink passed. I did finish the chapter just like I wanted and, having lots of time ahead of me, went on to the next one. - My vision was just a tiny bit blurry because my eyes were tired from all that staring into the screen, and my thoughts were increasingly chaotic, but otherwise I felt absolutely fine. - When the last minute of my 24-hour marathon ended, I saw that, ironically, I couldn’t just save and quit in the area I was at the time. - I quit the game after another four hours. I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until I closed the game. I stood up and rubbed my eyes, and then I started stretching as if my life depended on it.

From the Coldest to the Maximum Possible Temperature on Earth
From the Coldest to the Maximum Possible Temperature on Earth
Month ago
Today’s journey is especially dangerous…and unusual. I wanna test my capsule by going all the way from the coldest temperature on our planet to the absolute hottest! Usually, all atoms vibrate, move around, interact, and do their daily work of making up you, me, and everything else in the universe. They create energy and heat from all that bouncing around. Absolute zero is the temperature at which atoms stop moving…completely! So, naturally, things get really cold - 0°Kelvin. That’s -459.67°F!

They can survive under layers of solid ice, in stone walls, and even in outer space! - Now that we’ve passed -458°, helium can maintain its gaseous state (a.k.a. it melts into a liquid at that temperature). - -361°F - gonna need to be extremely careful now because I'm moving through the temperature when oxygen melts into a liquid! - Now my equipment is showing -128°F. Ah, I see, it's the world record for the coldest air temperature recorded at ground level! - The coldest habitable place on our planet is the village of Oymyakon in Russia! On January 26, 1926, the temperature dropped to a staggering -96°F! - Going further, and I see the temperature is 55.4°F. It's a shocking number because it refers to the lowest human body temperature ever recorded. - My next stop is even hotter than that, at 115°F. That's the highest human body temperature ever recorded. - Moving out of the “human body range” I've arrived at the 159.3°F mark, which is the highest surface temperature ever recorded on Earth. - Just a couple of seconds later, and my capsule is traveling through a temperature of 257°F. That's when any Intel CPU processor automatically shuts down. - The brake pads on a Formula 1 racecar can reach a truly terrifying temperature of 1,380°F! - The next temperature stop is 1,900°F, and it measures the heat of a volcanic eruption. Well, the lava spewing out of it, to be precise. - The hottest temperature on Earth was actually human-made! It was created in 2012 by scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. Inside the collider, lead ions were smashed into each other going 99% of the speed of light. - The resulting plasma that formed had an absolutely mind-blowing temperature of 9.9 trillion °F! That's 250,000 times hotter than the center of the Sun!

Why Some People Chase Storms And Why It's Popular
Why Some People Chase Storms And Why It's Popular
Month ago
The thrill of a hunt, a challenge from nature itself, the opportunity to prove yourself, and a lot of adrenaline - storm chasing has it all, and so much more. I’m driving as fast as the wind; the city limit sign fading far behind me. Lightning is blinding me every couple of seconds and the windshield of my car is flooding from rain. This isn’t my first rodeo, mind you, but I’ve gotten used to the fact that getting nervous is just a part of my job. Debris, tree branches, and dirt covering the road are all signs of impending danger; and signs that my hunt will go well.

But it’s also become my job as a nature photographer. - Most of the time, the storm is thousands of miles away, and you need to plan every detail of an upcoming trip ahead of time. - I wasn’t a cool kid or a daredevil when I was young; I was a nerd; and probably the most out-of-this-world kind of nerd. - Storms were just a dream for me; I knew I had to study first. But getting into the storm chasing club was inevitable at some point. - The first step I took was becoming a storm spotter. These are volunteers, from all walks of life, hired and educated to help local weather stations to identify storms. - Checking weather reports every hour, searching for places where cold air might meet warm air - looking for the kinds of situations from which storms and tornados are naturally born. - Never go on a storm chasing trip alone - that’s the rule. One of you will search for the best place to intercept a tornado, and the other one should focus solely on driving. - If you want to play tag with a tornado, you need a monster rig. This vehicle should be your moving castle, and be ready to take a good beating too. - Unfortunately, storm chasing isn’t limited to professionals, and that’s a troubling thing. That means there’s a lot of untrained storm chasers that will not only put themselves at risk, but others as well. - Some individuals will do anything to get to the storm first. This is one reason why you never go storm chasing if you aren’t qualified for it. - I remember the time I caught one of the best storms I’ve ever seen. The 1000-mile drive was worth it. - I had to make a split-second decision about when to turn towards the storm. Turn too early and I’d get in the way of the tornado, which could lead to the worst turn of events. - My decision was decent, but soon to be proved half baked, since I got into an unforeseen traffic jam. - I thought all was lost when suddenly I noticed something extraordinary just 50 yards to my side. The wind started to spin near the ground. - My first reaction was pure excitement, but it abruptly turned into panic when I figured out where all the other chasers were hiding. - They were right in the path of the tornado, and completely oblivious. - All we could do was block the ways to the overpass with the two cars and tell the other chasers to get down on the ground. - I wasn’t able to catch a single photo, but I helped other people survive that day. Some of them quit storm chasing altogether.

Why Cruise Ships Are So Slow
Why Cruise Ships Are So Slow
Month ago
Ships come in all shapes and sizes. From motorized dinghies to yachts; from glorious looking white cruise ships to bulky container ships and tankers. But they all share one quality: their engines seem excessively powerful, yet they still can’t seem to output the speed you would’ve expected from this kind of power. The reality is the exact opposite of the expectations: a big liner can cross the Atlantic Ocean in a week, but a cargo ship would have to spend more than two weeks to do the same thing. For a plane to go from an airport in Western Europe to New York, for example, it would take only 8 hours. So why do we even use ships if planes are so much faster? Other videos you might like: 13 Secrets Cruise Ships Are Hiding From You usa-video.net/9bza8Uzoh9Y-video.html& Mystery of the Disappeared Bodies of the Titanic usa-video.net/lNedIBrGfzM-video.html& Flight Attendant Saved the Girl After Seeing the Note "Help Me" usa-video.net/ier2nD5qfas-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Carrying capacity of ships 1:08 The biggest cargo ship in the world 2:17 Why ships have trouble moving 3:05 What bulbous bow is 5:46 Are there fast cruise ships? 6:51 How to intercept a pirate ship 7:45 The natural speed limit of the sea itself 8:21 #ships #boats #brightside SUMMARY: - You won’t be able to carry thousands of tons of weight by plane. The same goes for the number of passengers - some ships can carry more than 5,000 passengers in one go! - So in general, ships are going slow just because they don’t need to go faster; their aim is set somewhere else completely. They sacrifice speed for better carrying capacity. - The engines of big ships are huge powerhouses taking up entire rooms and swallowing tons of fuel each day like it’s a snack. - When a plane flies, it needs to maintain enough speed to stay up in the air, and it needs to avoid clouds when possible. - Unfortunately, ships have no choice but to deal with the dense environment that often almost fully covers the ship’s hull. - Even something as fast as a bullet would slow down and finally stop after just 100ft through the water. This is why every ship needs more power to move at all. - A large ship is naturally submerged in the water with a part of its hull up to the waterline. If the ship is loaded with cargo, it’ll be submerged deeper than that. - All modern-day ships have a so-called bulbous bow - the thing that’s submerged in the water right under the nose of the ship. - This is why modern ships don’t produce waves around them anymore, and their speed is no longer so heavily affected by them. - WP-18 Special Forces Interceptor is a boat you’d expect to see in a sci-fi movie. But it’s real, and it’s literally cutting edge design is specially developed to cut through waves at the extremely high speed of 65 knots, or 74 mph. - A rush for top speeds was, and always will be, in people’s minds no matter what. This gave birth to another incredible vessel - The Mystic Powerboats C5000. - The max speed achieved in this boat is mind-blowing 250 mph. - If you want to go even faster, I have bad news for you: the sea won’t let you, because it won’t be calm enough. - So it seems like about 300 mph is the natural speed limit of the sea itself.

Why Steve Jobs Didn't Use Social Media at All
Why Steve Jobs Didn't Use Social Media at All
Month ago
Half the world spends two to six hours a day on social media, and those numbers keep going up. A lot of the credit goes to Steve Jobs, the inventor of the iPhone. But when you picture Steve, make sure it’s with his head up, addressing a crowd, looking into someone’s eyes, or exploring the world, not bent over the little screen so many of us hold in our hands. Steve Jobs was the least likely in any crowd to be gazing at social media! He didn’t use Facebook, and he didn’t use Twitter. Other videos you might like: Why Steve Jobs Didn't Have a License Plate usa-video.net/bKsDLW9akPo-video.html& I Adopted Rich People’s Habits, See How My Life Changed usa-video.net/tZw8tnz-uv8-video.html 12 Signs of High Intelligence You Probably Have usa-video.net/ONjVIeJ0HZg-video.html TIMESTAMPS: “Collecting the dots”. What is it? 0:37 What Steve Jobs did in сollege 1:43 Always do your research 4:47 Third-Party trackers 5:53 Be careful with the jokes 7:12 #SteveJob #socialmedia #brightside Preview photo credit: Apple director Steve Jobs shows iPhone: By Kremlin.ru, CC BY 4.0 creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0, commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=11161161 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - Like most inventors, Steve was always looking for the next idea, and he believed there was no substitute for a good old face to face exchange. - And while Steve Jobs did invent the iPhone, he didn’t do it alone! He shared that credit with more than ten other inventors! - Another reason Steve didn’t spend time on social media was that so many of his good ideas come from the random inspiration he encountered in the “real” world. - When discussing creativity, Steve talked a lot about “connecting the dots,” but it might be more accurate to say that Steve believed that first you had to “collect” the dots. - You’ve probably heard that Steve Jobs dropped out of college, and that’s true, but it’s also a little misleading. Not only did Steve stick around campus, he kept taking classes! - You see, once Steve no longer had to worry about fulfilling “requirements” for a major, he was free to observe any class that interested him. - Steve “collected the dot” and “dropped in” to a calligraphy class! Years later, when he was designing the first apple computers, Steve used the things he learned in Calligraphy class to design the first suite of computer fonts. - So if you, unlike Steve Jobs, are constantly attached to your screen, always do your research. That’s what third party trackers are doing…their research on you! - A good tip for browsing the web is the classic “If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.” - Never give out personal information like your social security number or mother’s maiden name. - Never post anything on line that you don’t want to have “Track” you forever. Be especially careful with the jokes. - In April of 2017, officials at Harvard discovered a Facebook group where accepted students made some jokes in bad taste. Even though the students insisted that it was all in fun, and many of the jokes were about themselves, Harvard revoked the admission from ten students. - This doesn’t mean you have to give up social media. It’s fun, informative, and lots of jobs and schoolwork require it. Just practice safe behavior.

Why Planes Don't Fly in Extreme Heat
Why Planes Don't Fly in Extreme Heat
Month ago
Flight cancellation might come as a shocker when you’re sitting in the departure lounge looking at the gorgeous bright sunny weather outside. If there’s not a raincloud or snowstorm in sight, then what gives? Oh yeah, planes can’t fly in extreme heat! In the summer of 2017, 50 flights were canceled at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The reason: temperatures were a brain-melting 120°F! In the age of super-advanced technology, it seems weird that air travel can be interrupted by an unusually hot day. The reason is actually in the nature of flight itself! Other videos you might like: Why Planes Don't Fly Straight usa-video.net/WcWbUIQMxXE-video.html& Why Planes Don't Fly Over the Pacific Ocean usa-video.net/00AT5h_sOQM-video.html& Why Airplanes Are White usa-video.net/KchRdiTzDz0-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: What makes planes fly 1:33 So can’t why planes fly in extreme heat? 3:07 Problems that extremely hot weather causes 4:17 What if a plane has to take off no matter what 4:50 What about the cold? 6:00 Can it be too windy to fly? 6:53 The riskiest situation that can happen in wet weather 8:05 #planes #aviation #brightside SUMMARY: - Before every departure, pilots get detailed information on the air temperature, humidity, elevation, runway length, and other important things. - If there’s no lift, a plane won’t be able to take off and stay up in the air. It all has to do with wings and how they’re designed to redirect the movement of air. - Since the air particles are resisting that change, the pressure on the underside of the wing is higher. Over the top of the wing, the pressure remains low. - The atmosphere gets thinner the higher up you go. Here “thinner” simply means that the air molecules are further apart from each other. - Hot weather has the same effect on air as higher altitudes do. That is, the higher the temperature, the less dense the air is. - For some planes, mostly smaller ones, it gets to the point where it not only has to be reduced, but the flight must be rescheduled because it’d be too dangerous for it to even try to take off. - Aircraft components like onboard electronics overheat, seals can get too soft or melt, brake temperatures increase during landings, there can be cabin cooling issues - a lot of things can break down in crazy hot temperatures. - Leaving a few passengers on the ground is one of the possible solutions when the plane just has to take off no matter how hot it is outside. - Is there such a thing as too cold to fly? Well, if anything, aircraft prefer when it’s chilly. After all, they’re designed to cruise at 35,000 feet, and such altitudes are known for their teeth-chattering temperatures of around -60°F. - A plane is unlikely to start wigging out just because it’s going through some turbulence. Aviation engineers and manufacturers test their aircraft and specify limits for the ground-, air-, and cross speeds. - Heavy rain is mostly a problem when it comes to landing. Runways are designed in such a way so that water doesn’t remain standing on them. - However, if that happens, pilots have to adjust landing speed and distance depending on how much water is on the ground. Hydroplaning is the riskiest situation that can happen in wet weather.

Why Asians Always Wear Masks
Why Asians Always Wear Masks
Month ago
If you’ve ever been to any East Asian countries or seen them in pictures or TV shows, you probably noticed hundreds of people wearing surgical masks. They wear them in public transport, cafes, in the street, and in the office. In Japan, Korea, China, and Vietnam, medical face masks have long ago become part of everyday life. Even babies wear them all the time. It looks like the most obvious reason would be to not catch a cold. Well, technically, it all started with that. Wearing a mask gives minimal protection from germs, though it’s the opinion of some that viruses have no difficulty getting through them. But there are other reasons. Other videos you might like: Scientists Finally Explain Why Asians Look So Cute usa-video.net/COkvq7WKy9Q-video.html& Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science usa-video.net/jxsnYsA549Y-video.html& 12 Habits That Help Chinese Women Stay Young usa-video.net/v85ZbtSKL0g-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: It's a social courtesy 😷 0:49 If you ride a scooter, wear a mask! 1:33 Masks hide a person’s emotions 😶 3:01 Masks that help with shedding weight 3:35 Other interesting facts about Asia: - Asian population 3:59 - Time zones of China 4:35 - The Vietnamese New year is a birthday for everyone 🎉 4:53 - The thinnest nation 5:36 - Men grow long fingernails 6:34 - Taking a nap during the workday 😴 6:47 - Hong Kong skyscrapers have holes 7:30 #Asia #Japan #brightside SUMMARY: - When you’re sick, you’re constantly leaving a trail of germs that stay behind wherever you go: on seats in public transport, doors, and hand-rails. That’s why wearing a mask is a social courtesy. - Another reason is air pollution. If you ride a scooter, and there are millions of them in Vietnam and China, you’ll want a mask. - Masks are also effective against allergies. The end of February is the beginning of allergy season for people in Japan. - In those Asian countries where winters can be cold and frosty, masks can also help to protect the face. - Asians wear masks so often that they’ve long ago become part of their wardrobe. Young people try to pick out a mask color and shape to match their outfit. - The Asian masks market is thriving, they spend $230,000,000 on masks yearly in Japan alone. - Asia is the biggest continent in square miles and population. It’s bigger than the entire surface of the moon by 2.9 million square miles. - Though China is in 5 time zones, there’s officially only one that they use. - The Vietnamese New year, Tet, is a birthday for everyone. It starts on the first day of the Moon calendar, which is at the end of winter, and is celebrated for several days. - The Thai New Year is celebrated from April 13 till April 15, and is the oldest festival that marks the change of seasons. - The Japanese are the thinnest nation among the largest economies. And this is regulated by law! Japanese laws demand that men’s waist shouldn’t be wider than 33.5 inches. Women’s waists shouldn’t be wider than 35 inches. - In Vietnam, men grow long fingernails. It’s considered a high-class mark, since only people who don’t do any hard work can manage this. - “Inemuri” is the Japanese practice of taking a nap during the workday. If you go to sleep in the office, nobody will judge or fire you. - The famous Japanese dish, “sushi” originated from South Asia and is made from 2 main ingredients of Eastern cuisine - rice and fish.

The Great Pyramid of Giza Mystery Finally Solved
The Great Pyramid of Giza Mystery Finally Solved
Month ago
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the world’s famous seven wonders. It’s a real miracle that more than 4,000 years after it saw the light of day, it still stands in the sands of Egypt. But did you know that it looked completely different in those days? The Great Pyramid was conceived as a tomb for Khufu whom you may probably know as Cheops. It remained the tallest structure created by human hand in the whole world for more than 3,800 years! Btw, it’s hard to believe, but in ancient times the crypt was mesmerizingly white... 💥 And guys, you probably know that Ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest esteem. So we hid one at the beginning of the video!

The exterior covering that you can see these days was built up from dark limestone. - These long rows of craggy slabs that resemble stepped pyramids rather than the usual ones were actually the inner coating or the core. - The pyramid was lined with sparkling white limestone. That’s what initially formed the outer layer of the pyramid. - In 1303 CE a major earthquake hit Crete. Cairo was affected as well, and the Great Pyramid met a similar fate. - For hundreds of years, the ancient monument was wearing away in the wind and the sun. In the 19th century, the remaining pieces of limestone that once covered it were seized once again. - Many adventurers who explored the site later stumbled upon the big stacks of strange debris at the foot of the pyramid. - One of the mysteries of the Great pyramid was the way the precious materials got to Giza in the first place. - The fine white stones that were really valued came from far away. They were extracted at Tura which was located on the opposite bank of the Nile, about 8 miles from the necropolis. - It’s likely the workers used to put the stones on the wooden sleds to move them closer to the construction site. - The people who worked on the pyramid’s construction were, despite the popular belief, skilled and well-paid employees.

10+ Best Exercises to Get Rid of Chest Fat
10+ Best Exercises to Get Rid of Chest Fat
Month ago
So, your favorite shirt feels a bit tight. Maybe you haven't been very active. Or maybe you’ve had a few hearty, late-night snacks recently. Whatever the reason, now you have to deal with extra fat on your chest. Face it, it’s time to hit the gym and try out these chests exercises! The easiest exercise that you can perform at home is push-ups. They target not only your chest muscles, or pecs, but also triceps and shoulders. And they’ll firm up your chest area. But there are many types of push-ups. You can choose the best ones depending on your overall physical shape and endurance, or just alternate them for each workout. But push-ups aren’t the only way to rid yourself of chest fat. There are some other great gym exercises to speed up fat loss and give you a toned upper body. Other videos you might like: 10-Minute Pushup Workout for Big and Muscular Arms usa-video.net/kQz2goJh6Bw-video.html 6 Simple Exercises to Get Bigger Arms In No Time usa-video.net/5SubD5Kq2v4-video.html 10 At-Home Exercises to Get Rid of Belly Fat In a Month usa-video.net/7pitmJNYUz8-video.html TIMESTAMPS: Standard push-ups 0:50 Wide hands push-ups 1:25 Arrow push-ups 1:56 Clap push-ups 2:17 Chest tap push-ups 2:55 Staggered arm push-ups 3:21 Decline push-ups 3:47 Dumbbell pullovers 4:43 Incline dumbbell press 5:16 Incline barbell bench press 5:52 Chest fly 6:25 Wall ball shots 7:02 Decline Cable fly 7:28 Dips 8:06 #chestmuscles #pushups #brightside SUMMARY: - #1. Get in a rigid plank position on your toes, with your arms fully extended and your feet no more than 12 inches apart. Now bend your elbows, breathing in, and lower your chest to just a bit below your bent elbows. Breathe out, pushing back up to the initial position. - #2. Place your hands farther out to each side, wider than shoulder width. The bigger the distance between your hands, the more grueling and effective this exercise will be. - #3. To perform it, get in a standard push-up position and tuck your elbows in about 45 degrees to get your body into an arrow shape. Now continue by doing standard push-ups. - #4. From the push-up position, start lowering your chest. After your chest gets slightly below your bent elbows, push upward with enough force for your hands to leave the floor and clap them below your chest. - #5. From a standard push-up position, lower your body and then explode up in the air to tap your chest, placing your hands in an X shape. After that, quickly put your hands on the floor to lower down into the next push-up. - #6. Get down in a standard push-up position, but place one hand higher than the other and a bit wider than shoulder-width. Start lowering your torso as close to the ground as you can. Extend your arms to push upward and reverse your hand position for the next push-up. - #7. The higher the surface, the more strenuous the exercise will be. Now get in a standard push-up position but, place your feet on the elevation you’ve chosen. Keep your elbows at 45° and continue, just like with regular push-ups. - Doing a workout that consists of all these exercises, plus any type of push-ups 3 times a week will make a noticeable difference. However, keep in mind that you can’t just get rid of the fat in your chest without dropping fat from the rest of your body. - To blast fat throughout your body faster and boost your metabolism, you should include cardio training as well, such as jumping rope, running at a moderate pace, using a stair-stepper machine, or an elliptical trainer. - Sometimes an enlarged chest on a man has nothing to do with not being active or poor diet choices. And what you believe to be fat might turn out to be an excessive amount of breast tissue. This could be a sign of a hormonal imbalance, when a man’s body produces too much estrogen.

Does Anyone Own the Moon?
Does Anyone Own the Moon?
Month ago
Even if you never thought to ask who owns the Moon, you can’t deny it’s an interesting question. Not counting international waters, there aren’t many places on Earth that don’t belong to somebody. It just makes sense that someone would own the Moon too, right? So, who’s the rightful owner of the lunar landscape? It turns out people have been claiming the Moon long before anyone set foot on it. One such claim dates all the way back to 1756, when a man by the name of Aul Juergens received our Moon as a gift from the Prussian King, Frederick the Great. But are there any more recent claims to Lunar domination?

Also among his customers are celebrities such as Barbara Walters, Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Nicole Kidman. - When China announced its intentions to one day establish a colony of their own on the Lunar surface, Dennis Hope was none too happy. - Governments cannot, under any circumstances, claim land in space. - Something only belongs to you when the laws of the country you live in define it as yours. - What that means for Dennis Hope and his customers, is that the only way their claims could ever be considered valid was if his Galactic Government was recognized as its own nation.

What If You Fly for 1 Year Non-Stop
What If You Fly for 1 Year Non-Stop
Month ago
What if a millionaire offers to pay for all your traveling aspirations? Only one condition: first, you have to fly continuously for a year, non-stop. Clouds after clouds after clouds. Would you say yes? If you accepted, what would it be like? Jet lag would probably the first thing that comes to mind since this is the most familiar side effect after a long flight. If 6-8 hours make your head feel the weight of the world, then can you imagine what 365 days up in the air would do? Well, honestly, this is the very least of your worries, considering everything else flying does to your body.

This contradiction will be the reason for your stomach ache. - The pressure is still the one to blame for this one. As you go higher in the air, the gas inside you expands, causing the unexpected ache that you’re feeling. It’ll help you a lot if you don’t try to hold the gas inside you though since that only makes you feel worse and more bloated. - Airplanes were designed to be able to handle the pressure. But due to being above the horizon, your blood will absorb less oxygen than usual. - They’re actually doing it for your own good! It’s been suggested that a healthy environment would have about 50 to 60 percent water vapor present in the air. Sadly, inside an airplane cabin, it can dip as low as 10 percent, which makes it drier than the desert. - The dryness of the air up there will not only affect your hydration, but also mess with your sense of smell. And guess what: being able to smell food is essential for your brain to also recognize how it tastes. - The Journal of Environmental Health Research also concluded that the risk of catching colds is a hundred times higher when you’re on an airplane. - Some studies have shown that spending 56 minutes at such an altitude is equal to spending 20 minutes tanning.

How Braces Work (And Why So Slow)
How Braces Work (And Why So Slow)
Month ago
Who doesn’t want a nice brilliant smile? Getting braces can fix bigger problems that could affect you later in life too, like jaw alignment. In short, what braces do is apply pressure to the teeth to encourage them to move into the correct position inside the mouth. Each tooth has a name, and charts of the correct position of each tooth are found all over the dentist’s and orthodontist’s office. Most of us have a slight or significant underbite or overbite. This is due to jaw misalignment, and braces will fix that! But how does all that metal in your mouth really work? And why might someone need braces?

If you sucked your thumb or pacifier a lot as a baby, this can affect how your baby teeth grow in. - An expander will stretch the bone and cartilage of the hard palate before it stops growing. It prevents teeth from crowding, and preps the mouth to have room for your braces. - Most people will feel the pressure on the back molars and will feel some discomfort in their teeth, perhaps behind their nose and eyes, or in their temples. But this tenderness will go away eventually. - Braces may look simple, but they’re actually made up of a few different parts that all work together: bonding material, the bracket, arch wire, ligature elastics, spacers, and orthodontic bands. - That wire that connects your brackets plays a key role in moving your teeth; wire doesn’t generally like to bend, but heat from your mouth makes the wire more flexible. - Your teeth are bones, and you’re only seeing the tips of them - the rest of them are anchored in your gums, which are soft to allow movement. - Besides a straight smile and proper jaw alignment, braces have another benefit. They make your teeth stronger! - Alrighty, it’s now two years later, so what does happen when your braces come off? Your orthodontist will remove any extra bands, the wire, and ligature elastics. - Your orthodontist will probably have you brush your teeth well right there in the office, so that he or she can then try to remove any remaining bonding agent from your teeth.

Why Smartphones Overheat and How to Stop It
Why Smartphones Overheat and How to Stop It
Month ago
The last decades were a wondrous time. We went from “brick” cell phones that barely fit into our pockets, to tiny devices everyone was always losing in their bags and purses. And then… back to giant cell phones eventually, but with several huge differences. They’re smart now. But with great power come inevitable problems. That comfort is fragile enough to be ruined in mere seconds, simply by the overheating of a smartphone. So you should be careful enough with your choice of device. If your phone overheats regularly, this video is what you’ve been looking for. Other videos you might like: 15 Mistakes That Shorten the Life of Your Phone usa-video.net/0Z-pLovvqkg-video.html 7 Brilliant Things You Can Do With Your Smartphone usa-video.net/R8Dy-V7NnYw-video.html How to Tell If Your Smartphone Is Fake Or Real usa-video.net/I0ndrQ2S-vM-video.html TIMESTAMPS: The most common cause of heating up 1:52 Why you should never leave your phone plugged in excessively 3:10 Can Wi-Fi make a processor hot? 3:44 Remove the case! 4:19 Сan a battery explode from overheating? 💥 5:02 How to avoid overheating 6:00 #smartphone #phonebattery #brightside SUMMARY: - In relatively hot weather, and even with some air conditioning, your phone can heat up to 110 degrees F with no issue at all. - To get all the information about the precise temperature from your phone, of course, there’s an app for that. - Overheating is generally triggered by electricity that’s running through your smartphone when it processes something. - The most common cause of pocket devices heating up is when they run games. - It’s not only processors that heat your device up. A battery does too, since it’s the one and only source of electricity in a smartphone. - You may also want to keep in mind that closed apps aren’t always fully closed, and may continue to work in the background, overloading the processor with tasks and rapidly sucking the battery dry. - External heat is another big problem. But the only thing you can do about that is to avoid direct sunlight on your phone and remove the case. - Just like overheating may be caused by the excessive use of both a processor and a battery, it can also be dangerous for both of them. - The only way a battery can explode from overheating is from a heating loop. - To avoid overheating, you need to take care of your phone. It helps to use silicon-based phone cases. - Use only high-quality cables to charge your phone, and don’t charge over the max. An extra 15 minutes of work won’t make up for the loss if your phone starts to overheat. - Try lowering the brightness of your phone’s screen. It’ll not only prevent overheating, but will also be a good way to preserve your battery’s life. - If you can open up the backside of your phone, you can clean out the dust that typically collects there. On a scale this small, all dust will work like feathers in a puffy jacket - locking all the heat inside and preventing the phone from cooling down.

Why Trains Are So Expensive (Sometimes More Than Flights)
Why Trains Are So Expensive (Sometimes More Than Flights)
Month ago
Have you noticed, when shopping for travel tickets, you occasionally come across prices that defy logic? All the time! For instance, you can get to your destination in 1 hour by plane or take a train for 7 hours and pay way more money! How are these fares fair? And how would you fair with these fares? And how do these passenger rail companies stay in business if air travel is faster and cheaper?! Well, trains do have their perks. The obvious benefits are catching it right in the city versus having to fight traffic all the way to the airport. You can also take as many liquids with you as you want, and there’s no stress at all if you’re afraid of flying! But the real explanations behind why train tickets cost so much have less to do with comfort and emotions and more about practicality… Other videos you might like: A Train Lost in a Tunnel in Italy, No One Can Find It usa-video.net/d4m3HvTFG9Y-video.html& What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean? usa-video.net/0PZ8KwlxhIk-video.html& 14 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On usa-video.net/uq7mztW1knU-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: No roads in the sky 1:11 The largest expense 3:05 How much do passenger train companies actually make? 💰 4:24 Why things are easier for railroads in Europe 6:07 ❗️ The most expensive rides in the world: - The Maharajas Express Luxury Train, India 6:49 - The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, Russia 7:28 - Royal Scotsman, the UK 8:08 #trains #railroads #brightside SUMMARY: - When you travel by plane, it takes off at a certain airport and lands at another. The journey itself, no matter how long it is, happens up in the air, which needs no physical maintenance. - Trains, however, run on tracks. And to be able to move on those at high speeds, or even move on them at all, the tracks need to be in good condition. - From time to time, sections of tracks and ballast need to be renewed. While most of this work is now done by specialized machines, the materials and those machines don’t come cheap! - Expanding the route network and building new tracks is extremely expensive as well - just 1 mile costs over a million bucks! - Just 1 locomotive traveling from DC to New York will run you about $6.5 million if you’re interested in buying! - The largest expense, however, is not the tracks or the trains - it’s the people servicing them. - Like any company, and in this case a huge one, Amtrak needs to pay someone to run the business. So, 3% of the ticket price is used to cover administrative costs. - Even though everyone knows their name, Amtrak still has to advertise good deals and new rides. That’s another 2% of the cost. - There are also settlement fees the company has to bear. Yes, trains are an incredibly safe kind of transportation. But accidents still happen, and around 1% of that ticket cost would go to those who get affected by them. - In the end, you can see that the profit for the company is roughly 35% of the average price for this ride. - Things are easier for railroads in Europe because they have smaller territories to cover and connect with tracks, and much more passengers and trains traveling on those lines. - The Maharajas Express luxury train travels across Northwest and Central India and goes through most of the major tourist spots of the country. It consists of 23 cars and is basically a temporary palace for 88 guests. - The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express fit for Russian tsars starts in Moscow and goes all the way across the world’s largest country to the eastern city of Vladivostok in 15 days and 14 nights. - Unless you’re friends with the royal family and get personal invites to their festive receptions, you'll definitely be amazed by a ride with the Royal Scotsman. - The shortest possible tour lasts 3 days, and costs start at around $3,000 per passenger.

How to Survive a Day Without Money
How to Survive a Day Without Money
Month ago
It seems impossible to survive even one day without money in the modern world. And yet, if you do find yourself in this situation, don’t panic. You don’t have to starve or use credit. Just follow the instruction! Of course, there are things you can’t do without, and if your fridge and your pockets are empty, what can you do? Don't try to get a free ride on public transport. If you get caught, you’ll be fined and will have to pay money you didn’t have in the first place. But you can ride a bicycle! Clothes, as well as furniture, home appliances, and pretty much anything else can be found on social media or in special apps - both free and on barter terms. As for food, you can always become a “freegan”! Of course, if you’re not daunted by the extreme.

Foodsharing is an ecological movement that was started in Germany in response to food waste. - In a lot of coffeehouses, you can get a free coffee that was paid for by a previous customer. Just ask the barista if they practice it. - Go to a food market, where local farmers or small private restaurants are presented. They usually give out free samples, which can fill you up if you go through the whole market! - You can make a post on your social media, in special groups or apps devoted to bartering. You’re lucky if you can draw or do handy work, or anything useful. - Go to a restaurant and offer your services in return for lunch or dinner. You can wash dishes, clean the kitchen, or bus tables. - The term “freegan” was offered in 1995 by Keith McHenry, a leader of a volunteer-run group that spreads food among homeless people. Freegans believe that humans treat nature only as consumers, making goods out of resources, and then wasting tons of them because it’s easier to throw them away than to recycle. - World-wise freegans know dumpsters - both private, and those near restaurants and supermarkets where one can find a lot of food waste. - If it’s warm enough, you can ride a bicycle - this way you’ll help the environment too. Hitchhiking is another way of getting somewhere, but it’s not necessarily safe, and be ready to change several cars before you get to your destination. - Clothes, as well as furniture, home appliances, and pretty much anything else can be found on social media or in special apps - both free and on barter terms. - Look for free books and movies in libraries. Cinemas have free shows, and museums have Doors Open Days - you just have to subscribe to their pages in social media and monitor updates, or find special offers in apps with coupons. - When journalist Michelle McGagh, from London, moved to a new house, she made up her mind to sell or give away everything she didn't need anymore. As a result she got rid of 80% of her belongings. - She took it a step further and spent a year without useless purchases. She had about $37 a week, which covered three meals for herself and her husband a day, toiletries, and house cleaning products.

Why Cruise Ships Are White
Why Cruise Ships Are White
Month ago
When you hear the word “ship”, what color will it be in your imagination? Probably white. We’re used to seeing big white cruise ships. Is this color necessary or just fancy? Cars come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Yellow, green, purple, red - you name it. There are absolutely no problems with color choice, giving you the option to paint your car any color you like. Then why do ships still all look the same? It turns out there are a lot of reasons for it, but not all of them are true. Some people say it’s because the white color is better for detection, both visual and on the radar too. They assume the white color reflects the radio signal much better than any other color. Which theories are true and which aren’t? Other videos you might like: Why Airplanes Are White usa-video.net/KchRdiTzDz0-video.html& 13 Secrets Cruise Ships Are Hiding From You usa-video.net/9bza8Uzoh9Y-video.html& Scientists Have Found The Titanic Will Disappear Soon usa-video.net/p57BPLgEHiY-video.html& TIMESTAMPS: Aren’t they all white?! 1:33 Why white has no impact on detection in the sea 3:19 Why ships are red below the waterline 4:13 What about black? 4:44 The main reason why ships are white-colored 6:25 #ships #cruiseship #brightside Preview photo credit: Luxure cruise liner OCEAN PRINCESS in port on July 06, 2012 in Klaipeda, Lithuania: By Vytautas Kielaitis/Shutterstock.com, www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/klaipeda-lithuania-july-06-luxure-cruise-252598864 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - Most small boats are whatever colors their owners want them to be. So one thing we already know here is that the white color isn’t some kind of rule from a mariner’s book or something. Big cruise ships are often navy-blue or even red in color. - If you’ve ever been in high seas that are also coincidentally called blue waters, you know that sometimes all you can see around you is blue. - The white color could possibly be helpful here to spot a decently sized ship, but clouds and reflections of light in the waves are also white. - Metal hulls are extremely good at reflecting radio signals, no matter what color they are. If the hull is made of fiberglass like a lot of yachts’ hulls are, then they’ll have some metal part in them to reflect the radar. - That means that white has absolutely no impact on any kind of detection in the sea, so we can rule this reason out for good. - If you keep in mind how aggressive saltwater is, any paint could become a concern. For metal ships, it gets even worse because they have to deal with rust. - Tanker staff learned one trick that helps with that, and it’s definitely not white paint. It’s red paint, obviously. This is why some ships keep their hull red under the waterline. - The black color absorbs almost all the sunlight it catches; this color has no reflective abilities. Sunlight isn’t only bright, but it also transfers energy in the form of heat. The more light gets absorbed - the more heating power it generates. - Red can reflect more light; up to 40% of it just bounces off and doesn’t produce heat. Grey is slightly better. It can deflect half of all light, so a grey hull will heat up two times slower than a black one. - The white-colored ships would only absorb 20% of all the sunlight, so it won’t heat up as much. This immensely reduces the stress on air conditioning systems and works wonders for energy efficiency.

I would think a person could sue a restaurant if they offer an All You Can Eat Buffet and ban them or ask them to leave. As long as a person is not unruly or wasting food there should not be an issue. The way an All You Can Eat Buffet restaurant should work is by the end of the week profit. Yes there are some people that try to make a goal of eating more than they can to get more food than they pay, but there are a very few that do it. What about those that only eat one small plate full. It's like the restaurant owner wants his cake and eat it too. I would also think the publicity of banning or throwing someone out would out way allowing a few people to get away with out eating the buffet. Let's face it, if these guys weren't making money there would not be so many.

This may be a romantic relationship or a platonic one, it doesn't matter to you. You have a few close people in your life BUT you often feel as if a puzzle piece is still missing there. There are moments when you feel lonely and dream about a person you can go to for a comfort and advice. At the same time, you try to conceal your desire for a partner in crime. This doesn't help the situation. Admit your need and act on it." OTL so that's my hidden desire...
