Common knowledge dictates that the human body has five basic senses — sight, touch, taste, smell, and hearing.
Other senses that people share include equilibrioception, our sense of balance which allows us to stay upright and perform gymnastics. Nociception is our ability to perceive pain, and chronoception, our sense of time passing. These are just a small assortment of examples, as there are many more senses which we unanimously share.
The Moon Has a Dark Side
We blame Pink Floyd for this one. While the moon does have a backside, often called “the far side of the moon”, there’s nothing dark about it except for the fact that we don’t see it. So no, no one, not even Roger Waters will be seeing us on the dark side of the moon, because there simply isn’t one.
The far side of the moon is built just the same as the one we see, except for a few minor geographical differences. In 1960, the first people that ever saw the far side of the moon were the Apollo 8 astronauts, and we can guarantee you, from their keen observations and photography, that one side is no darker than the other.
Doing Number Two in a Ninety Degree Angle Is Normal
This little bit of information might seriously improve your quality of life. When most people do "number two", they tend to sit at a ninety-degree angle with their feet neatly pressed on the floor. While this may seem normal to you, it’s actually putting a serious strain on your body.
The proper way to do your business is by putting your feet on a stool to bend your knees and lift them up to mid-torso height. This angled position helps release all tension in your lower abdomen, where all the equipment for doing a number two exists. Try this next time you feel the urge and you’ll instantly feel the difference.
Bananas Are Naturally Yellow
One thing that makes ripe bananas look so tasty and inviting is their beautiful yellow color. The fact is, these fruits are not as tasty or beautiful as they are in nature.
Bananas are actually green in their natural habitat. Humans have basically engineered bananas to appear much more appealing. So, next time you're eating a banana, remember that this color is actually a result of the beautiful cooperation between man and nature.
Sugar Mades Kids Hyperactive
Sugar gives you energy, there is no doubt about that. But many parents believe that eating too much sugar can actually cause their children to turn into little Tasmanian devils. This is often referred to as a “sugar high.” While large amounts of sugar do raise glucose levels, it is not a direct cause of hyperactivity.
In fact, the opposite may be true, as digesting large amounts of sugar can lead to a hypoglycemic after-effect, which can leave you feeling quite "down." Excess sugar also causes a lot of other problems, including diabetes and high blood pressure. The last thing you need to worry about though is a hyperactive fit as the result of a Mars Bar.
