You call your beloved cat to have his dinner. Sir Scratchy! Suddenly, you hear loud stomping. The dishes on the dinner table clink with every thump. A painting’s fallen off the wall! Is it an earthquake? No, that’s a cat the size of a pony walking into the dining room! It needs ten times as much food as the average cat. And it purrs like a tractor! No, Scratchy, stop rolling, you’ll turn over the cupboard! Well, this is one possible scenario for the evolution of animals in the future. Climate, water, oxygen in the air, and even gravity are factors that influence the course of evolution. For example, scientists predict that some bird species will gradually lose their warm feathers. In the future, they will basically look like sphinx cats with beaks and wings. The same thing might happen to our pets. Gradually, their fur will become shorter until they’re completely bald.

Most people have 12 pairs of rib bones, which means 24 ribs in total. But, some have 25. One in 200 people is born with the so-called cervical rib. It forms right above the first rib and grows at the base of a person’s neck, above the collarbone. A cervical rib can be located on the left, right, or both sides. You can have it without even knowing about it. This extra rib doesn’t necessarily form completely. It can be just a thin strand of tissue fibers not even an X-ray can see. In most cases, it’s really not a big deal — unless it starts putting pressure on nerves and blood vessels.

Most people are sure that humans only have 5 senses. But that’s not entirely true. Taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing aren’t the only ones we have. Scientists claim that people have between 9 and 20 senses in total. These include: thermoception — the sense of warmth; equilibrioception — the sense of balance. There’s also the sense of time — although not everyone seems to have that last one. We used to think there were just eight different blood types. But in reality, there are over 30 known blood group systems. Here on the Bright Side, our favorite blood group is B Positive. Get it?

But the ability to raise both eyebrows separately is much rarer. If you’re not among them, that’s because you cannot yet control and move the corresponding muscles. But this skill can be developed. Stand in front of a mirror, hold one eyebrow with your hand and lift the other up and down. And then do the same with the other eyebrow. This will help you learn moving them separately.

Yeah, yeah, I know, we’ve all heard that there are many reasons why falling asleep in front of our TV screens might not be the best thing to do if you wanna get a good night’s sleep. But it turns out, it’s not all that bad. Some experts suggest there may even be some advantages to dozing off while watching your favorite TV show. For instance, if you don’t turn up the TV too loudly, those noises in the background may help you fall asleep faster. Think of your TV as a white noise machine. If you’ve done some research on ways to improve your sleep, you’ve surely heard of white noise before. It is like the sound of the wind blowing or the rain falling. It’s a mixture of different sounds at different frequencies, all happening at the same time. Sometimes these types of sounds are used by people to help them sleep, block out other sounds or concentrate better on their tasks. If the volume on your TV is low enough — meaning you’re not able to understand the dialogue precisely, it might help if you have problems falling asleep.
