By places, I mean prison.
If you are the type of person who does not like to get out of bed, never, under no circumstances, whatever the situation might be, not even to take a dump, then this might be the right job for you. NASA, the European Space Agency and the German Aerospace Center are offering $18,500 for people to lie in bed for two months.
The job is based in Cologne, Germany, and it’s part of a study designed to better understand how the body adapts to weightlessness. The agencies are currently looking for people who are female, between the ages of 24 and 55 and who speak German. The official name of the study is
The only catch is that you will have to stay in bed 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 60 straight days. That means no getting up for bathroom breaks, bathing or meals, but this is not really a problem for the passionate bed lovers out there. It is a dream come true.

Doctors in Taiwan have removed four bees from
“Under the microscope, I slowly pulled them out, one after another,” ophthalmologist Dr. Hung Chi-ting said at a press conference last week.
The bees that Hung removed were alive. They are colloquially known as sweat bees because they feed on sweat and tears from humans and animals, but they rarely sting. Hung said the patient’s contact lenses may have saved her vision.
“She was wearing contact lenses so she didn’t dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens,” he told the BBC. “If she did, she could have induced the bees to produce venom. … She could have gone blind
Those bees have great taste. I also drink the sweet and delicious tears of my enemies instead of orange juice for breakfast.
A study from the University of Western Australia and the University of Zurich during which the testicles of more than 100 different male primates have been studied claims that all male primates have the same evolutionary problem with their genitals.
The study says that males can either be “well endowed” and have large balls, or are instead “well-adorned” with hair. Researchers concluded that it’s “hard to be both” of these things as it takes too much energy to do.
Although the study focuses on animals, humans have very similar evolutionary patterns and many
According to Professor Clare Collins, a nutrition and dietetics expert at the University of Newcastle, holding in built-up gas may cause abdominal distension, “with some gas reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath”.
In a text for The Conversation, she also warned that holding it in is actually futile: “Holding on too long means the build-up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart.” You could also end up with a condition called diverticulitis, which is when small pouches develop in the gut lining and become inflamed, but she did point out that more research into this was needed.
Next time you feel the urge to fart in a full elevator just let it rip, however socially unacceptable it is. You don´t want small inflamed pouches in your gut lining, do you? What you definitely don`t want is farts coming out of your mouth. That would destroy your social life. In fact, I feel that this is a very serious issue that needs be addressed so I am starting a social awareness campaign in order to remove the stigma farting has. #fartsaregood #mouthfartsarebad
The song in question is “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” and I think it is not just the mosquitos who are negatively affected by it.
A study recently published in the journal Acta Tropica on mosquito feeding and breeding habits found that the insects are less likely to eat or reproduce when the above-mentioned song is playing. The specific type of mosquito researched was the Aedes aegypti, called the yellow fever mosquito, known to carry many diseases.
Researchers already knew that electronic music – and more specifically, Skrillex’s low-frequency vibrations – disrupt mating habits in insects. They found that the noise makes it harder for them to receive signals from hosts.
In the experiment, mosquitos in the environment with music were less likely to feed on the provided host and were less likely to reproduce than mosquitos in the environment without music. Researchers believe that these findings can be used to help develop more ways to control Aedes-carried diseases.
They look like little children playing in the park.
The secret is finally revealed!
