Have you ever experienced those moments where time seems to sprint by in some instances and crawl at a snail’s pace in others?

So, what kind of gas do you fill up with? Well, tacos usually do the trick for me, but at the filling station, you’ve probably noticed different tabs with some numbers on gas pump buttons. Those are octane levels, varying from regular and mid-grade to premium. Each one provides a different level of octane that your specific engine type requires functioning effectively. Your choice should be based on the compression ratio of your engine. So, the myth of using premium for a car that requires regular gas to gain better performance or to boost the engine’s health is false. Best stick to the fuel recommended for your car. You’ll save money buying the correct fuel. But what if you filled your gas tank on a cold morning, allowing the fuel to shrink? Won’t it make the fuel denser, providing more value for your dollar? This is another false myth. The supply tanks are buried so deep underground that the temperature inside doesn’t change at all.

When scientists tried to match the signal with some other telescopes, it was gone. Low-mass stars sometimes flare up with radio energy, but not here since they mostly have X-ray counterparts. Very dense collapsed stars like Pulsars, Magnetars are also not a choice.

Some historians believe that Albert Einstein’s wife made a big contribution to the development of the relativity theory because she was also a mathematician. And for some reason, her involvement was not documented and there is no way to prove this fact. But there have been cases of unfair treatment of women that have been documented. American artist Margaret Keane had to sue her husband who took credit for all of her work, and astrophysicist Susan Jocelyn Bell Burnell didn’t receive the award for her contribution to the discovery of pulsars until several decades later.
