It’s lunchtime! You choose a delicious-looking piece of chicken, but, oh no, it ends up on the floor instead of your mouth. You quickly pick it up and eat it anyway. Because there is the five-second rule, you know. The bad bacteria simply won’t have enough time to hop on your food off the floor if you’re fast enough. But is it real, or is it just an urban legend?

You’ve probably noticed that train and bus seats are covered in fabrics with weird patterns. Have any idea why? They use these patterns to cover any germs and stains on the seats.

Also, the patterns are usually so ugly that no one even wants to look at them for long enough to spot any stains. So yeah, the pattern is there to make you look away, and if you look, to make it less noticeable. No bus will ever have plain white seats, that’s a guarantee!

Flying has long become routine for many people. But even frequent flyers sometimes don’t know about things you should never do on a plane! No bare feet on a plane! It’s one of the biggest no-nos of air travel. Even if we omit the topic of unpleasant odors (picture several hundred passengers removing their shoes and socks at once!), the airplane floor is extremely filthy! People with contagious foot problems might have been walking the aisles barefoot before you. There’s likely to be a lot of dirt left after previous passengers. And don’t even get me started on the floor in the lavatories! If your feet need some freedom, take off your shoes, but at least wear your socks. Or bring along a pair of light slippers.

The arrival of a child can change the lives of everyone in a household. They are beautiful creatures that brighten our life, but their presence can also fill us with some doubts and fears.

The human body has about 5 million hair follicles. This seems like a huge number, maybe even excessive or useless, but actually, we should give more credit to our hair. You might not know this, but hair has a purpose: it helps regulate body temperature and protect the body from external elements like dirt. Hair is a natural thing to have, and on top of that, it’s very useful. So why continue to invest money and time in removing it, either by pulling it out or using substances and other modern techniques to remove it?

We’re so used to going to the bathroom and finding the usual stuff there that we hardly ever stop to think about whether or not it’s actually “normal” to have those things in there. At first sight, it might seem like having your razor blade, or even toilet paper, stored there is sort of the obvious thing to do since you’ll be using these things in there, and only in there. However, it turns out that things that we normally find in bathrooms would better be stored somewhere else.
