Anatomy of a Yawn

Ever have a yawn get stuck?

Dissatisfying.

 

Well scientists have broken down the yawn into 3 stages. Trigger, Draw and Release.

The Trigger stage is the point where your body knows it needs to yawn, you open your mouth and feel that tension begin in the pit of your chest. It then transitions into the Draw stage.

The Draw stage is the prolonged moment as you draw in a large amount of air and build up into the release stage. This is the iconic action that designates a yawn.

The Release is the breaking point in which the tension of the yawn releases and you get that satisfying relaxation from the completion of your yawn.

 

Some people, such as myself suffer from “Cyclic Segmentation Syndrome” which is the lack of a change from the Draw stage to the Release stage. It has no known physiological condition but it is a largely suffered syndrome. Some people can miss the switch which is just a missed response however some heavy sufferers of CSS havent ever completed a full yawn cycle.

New Element Discovered

There has been a new element discovered that is incredibly rare. This element much like many elements are required to be ingested in a small amount to balance our bodies chemical compositions. Due to the lack of knowledge of this elemt many people on earth are very deficient in this and thus lack the chemical balance that allows them to function normally.

The element has been titled “IntegriT” and is still being researched further for its Atomic Weight and other attributes.

Expect to see more thorough reports on foods and supplements that offer IntegriT.

The Mighty Dishwasher

It is reported that people who wash dishes manually develop a very interesting condition (some would say).

 

Because one is forced to grip wet, soapy, often smooth dishes. Those that regularly wash dishes by hand develop an aquatic grip. This aquatic grip is a layer of skin that is very very thin and has tiny tentacle like bumps. These bumps are incredibly flexible and when wet, tangle and stick to smooth surfaces.

When the soap breaks the tension between these individuals skin oils it forms a conjoined bond between the hand and the dish due to the tension being in other locations where the soap/water is much less combined.

 

Pretty cool ‘condition’.

Pi: A Piece of Cake

Pi has just now been completely deciphered!

 

Pi, once a chaotic anomaly in mathematics has now just been completed. A computer code-named “A La Mode” that has been calculating Pi since 1984 has just discovered its loop.

The loop ends with:

7812639503982883249087538823, to which the loop then kicks in with: 314159265… etc.

 

Amazing.

Now science and math have a huge new stepping stone to develop their craft. Soon we may have teleportation or worm hole generators.

Thank you A La Mode for your 28 years of mind shattering Pi calculating.

New Genious on the Block

It has just recently been documented that Octopi are rapidly reaching intellectual development equivalent to our own. Scientists noticed the octopi gesturing things to each other with their tentacles, at first it seemed very basic and uncoordinated but one scientist recognized some patterns.

 

Binary. Yes. The octopi were communicating to each other in binary. Each tentacle is bit 1 through 8 and motioning its whole body up or down from its starting position is 9 and 10. Scientists are currently trying to figure out which tentacle exactly is which bit of information but they say that it should take them a few weeks at most.

 

No one knows if this is a universal language among octopi or if it’s a special case among this clan, but whats clear to me is that we may not be at the top of the food chain for long.

Valentines Special: Kissin’

Happy Valentines Day everyone! It’s Tuesday but I’m publishing a special article for you along side the scheduled 3 this week.

It has just been discovered that in a rare case, some people can get pregnant by kissing.

Now. Clean up whatever you just dropped on the floor.

 

There’s a new condition on the rise in young adults that causes them to suffer from pregnancy symptoms after kissing. Scientists are still unsure of what exactly causes this but they believe that humans are being born with a receptor in their lips that detects outside DNA. There’s a serious issue in this trait as it gives pregnancy symptoms without the actual pregnancy. Also this is not a condition that only affects women, men are recorded as being able to have these receptors and suffer from the same symptoms.

They believe this is because the receptors in the lips are generated while the fetus is un-gendered. This means that without another gene to tell it not to effect males, these receptors work as they will with anyone. This can be seen in other human attributes such as males having nipples.

 

Scientists call this a rogue evolutionary defect and are worried that it will be passed on to other generations, furthering its weave into human DNA.

However there are only 3 recognized cases of this condition currently. Further research will have to be made to determine the scope of this evolutionary trait.

Why grocery stores never fix their shopping cart wheels.

What a frustrating thing. You grab a shopping cart expecting to go in and get out as pain-free as possible but lo and behold the shopping carts wheels are all caked up and one of them doesn’t even turn.

This is because major research has been done on shopping, shoppers and the conditions given in supermarkets.

Science knows that humans are always drawn to happier conditions and thus will try to alter their environment to balance that out internally.

Research has discovered that a Shopping cart in its 5th year of service will earn 37% more profit than a shopping cart in its 1st year.

This is because the struggle and strain of dealing with a rickety shopping cart lowers the customers mood causing them to subconsciously want to increase their mood back to a comfortable state. This causes you to be a more spontaneous shopper, grabbing more expensive items, treats and impulse items as you roll around the market.

Hope you enjoyed the first batch of Anything But Fact. Expect to see some more next Monday!

Have a good weekend.
