Hey Y’all, Here is some weird stuff I learned last week. Some are funny, but most of all, pretty much useless.
Anyway, I hope you get a little kick out of them.
Did you know that Bigfoot’s footprints always have a wider heel than a human’s? Also, There is never an arch! That’s right, a Bigfoot is completely flat-footed.
How to differentiate a Bigfoot footprint from a bear footprint.
A bear’s footprint always has the middle toes out in front of the toes on either side.
A Bigfoot footprint always has the big toe out in front of the other toes.
Don’t Use Too Hot of Water To Warm Up Frostbite.
Very important! If you use really hot water to warm up frozen skin that may have frost bite it’s not good!
Let’s say you have some frozen fingers that are in real danger of frostbite. If, you use hot water to warm them up, and thaw your skin before your blood thaws, the skin will die. OUCH!
I also learned that, it should take the same amount of time to thaw your ice cubed fingers, or little piggies as it took to freeze them.
They told me that 98 to 100 degree water seems to be the optimal temp to bring them back up to temp.
Really though, you are supposed to let the pros take care of it for you. Get to Dr. “Warm your butt up”, so you don’t have to make a visit to Dr. Frankenstein.
America’s Top Fears 2018
I read an article from Chapman University about America’s top fears in 2018. This was a random study of 1,190 adults across the US. Enjoy!
Here are the top 10 fears in america for 2018.
#10- Fear of high medical bills at 53%
#9- Fear of global warming & climate change at 53%
#8- Fear of extinction of plant and animal species at 54%
#7- Fear of air pollution at 55%
#6- Fear of people I love dying at 56%
#5- Fear of people I love becoming seriously ill at 57%
#4- Fear of not having enough money in the future at 57%
#3- Fear of pollution of drinking water at 61%
#2- Fear of pollution of oceans, rivers and lakes at 62%
#1- Fear of corruption from government officials at 74%
A few differences from 2016 an 2017
Corrupt government officials was the biggest fear all three years.
In 2016 #2 was fear of a terrorist attack. #3 remained the same with not having enough money in the future.
Not having enough money in the future was replaced by pollution of oceans, river and lakes as #3 in 2017.
Not having enough money in the future dropped to #5 in 2017.
And I thought a lot of people were afraid of spiders and snakes! Haha!
Coming in at #67, spiders made the list at 26%, just above the fear of Demons at 20.8%.
Snakes put up a solid number in 2018 at #62 with 24.1%
A couple of other interesting ones—
People are more afraid of zombies than clowns yet, there are more of both than animals. Weird? I don’t know.
Enough about FEAR!
Worms Technically have only 1 leg.
That’s right! An 8 year-old boy finally told me the truth about worms. His exact words. “You know, worms technically have only one leg”.
Yep! out of the blue. Nothing being said previously about worms, at least not to my knowledge.
I asked “OK then, how many arms do they have?”
He looked at me like “Are you stupid or something”.
Then he said, “None! A Worm is just a leg with a mouth”.
Oh…..duh! Of course, they are just a leg with a mouth. How could I be so ignorant?
Well, that’s all I got for you for now. I hope you enjoyed the weird stuff I learned last week.
