These two beautiful creatures, Ivory and Saraswati, are proud parents of the first ever brood of White Ligers. December 2013 saw the birth of the world’s first White Ligers.
Winnie-the-Pooh may seem like an innocent children's story on the surface, but after deeper inspection it doesn't appear to be so! Journals published in the Canadian Medical Journal have shed new light on the characters.
First written by A. A. Milne in 1926, and after being acquired by Disney, Winnie-the-Pooh went on to become one of the most successful children's series of all time. However, it turns out there are immense psychological undertones throughout the series and each character was meant to portray a different disorder. Tigger has severe ADHD, Piglet has anxiety, Rabbit is a pedantic loner, Owl has OCD, Eore has extreme depression, while Pooh represents an addict!
This is mainly because when we make food for ourselves, we get desensitized to the smell, and a large part of tasting is actually smelling.
So when you make food for yourself and eat it, it's similar to tasting without smelling.
When someone else does the cooking for you, ideally when you're in another room where you can't smell it, the result is different.
When you walk in to have your food, you get to smell and taste it at the same time, so it tastes better to you. The same principle applies to eating leftovers.
Have you ever heard someone say that a certain food tastes better the next day? It's the same idea.
Typically, leftovers are preserved in the refrigerator, so they don't give off much of an aroma until heated. So there's actually a scientific explanation behind why your pizza tastes better the next day!
Mosquitoes are so pesky. We spend so much on citronella candles and sprays to keep the things away from us.
To keep them out of your house, make sure all sugary items are sealed well. Open cans of pop and fruit lying around are havens for mosquitoes and other pests like gnats.
Bounce dryer sheets repel a number of pests from mosquitoes to wasps and even mice. Place them around the house and by windows and the chemicals in the dryer sheets repel them.
Well brewed and unsweetened green tea repels mosquitoes from your skin. Drinking green tea instead of pop or juice is a much better option.
The chemicals in the green tea are excreted through your pores. It acts as a natural mosquito repellent.
The less sugar in your system, the better, because mosquitoes are attracted to sugar. So, there you have it. Cut out the sugar and drink green tea. It's healthier, anyways.
Stunt doubles are a vital part of the entertainment industry. Stunt men and women who are trained in their field, are made to look enough like the actor they are doubling for.
This way, the actor who is, harsh as it is to say, more valuable, in the context of the film or show, won't get hurt.
However, sometimes a suitable stunt double simply cannot be found. Such is the case with Verne Troyer, the actor who plays Mini-Me in the "Austin Powers" franchise.
Troyer, who stands at 2 feet 8 inches tall does all his own stunts because it is extremely difficult to find a stunt double the same size as him.
However, Troyer has worked as a stunt double. One of his first ventures into acting was when he was the stunt double for a baby in the 1994 film "Baby's Day Out."
