In the loud and hectic world, plants give us peace and quiet. They don’t yell, nor move, just sit there, silent. But... do they? What if I tell you that at this very moment your favorite cactus is kinda texting its plant buddies? And these messages could actually help us humans feed the world? What can plants possibly say to each other? All kinds of things. “Help!” or “Land here!” or “Get off!” or “My fruits are ripe!” And these messages aren’t just being sent by the big plants like trees; even little patches of moss can get quite chatty. Ah, by the way: if you’ve ever taken a whiff of freshly cut grass, you’ve actually been communicating with a plant!
The coldest part of our planet, Antarctica, keeps surprising us. Take a look at this waterfall named Blood Falls. Reddish water falls from the white ice. Scientists concluded that the color is related to iron. The water coming from the glacier oxidizes and rusts when it’s exposed to oxygen, and the red color occurs.
So Barry is running along the shore of the lake as fast as possible. He knows that if he stops, his life will turn into a nightmare in no time. 1,000 mosquitoes are about to bite him! But what he doesn’t know is that he’ll be okay after all. So, don’t be afraid, Barry, and stop! Mosquitoes are slow; they fly at a little more than 1 mph. And you can’t run forever. So, after a couple of hours of pointless running, Barry stops. He sweats and emits a smell attractive to insects. One little mosquito flies up to him. It buzzes next to his ear, sits on his sweaty neck, and bites. The insect pierces the skin with a special mouth apparatus called a proboscis. The mosquito starts pumping blood through this needle. Its saliva gets into Barry’s body and causes an allergic reaction. More precisely, it’s Barry’s immune system that starts this reaction. It perceives the mosquito’s saliva as an enemy and sends a unique chemical substance to the bite site.

Picture the food chain as this huge dinner table, where every critter has its place. The problem is, they’re also available for grabs on the menu! We’ve got all sorts of living beings out there, from teensy-weensy algae to enormous blue whales, and they all have one thing in common — they need food to survive. The way every creature manages to survive is because of this never-ending movement of nutrients in nature. Take the grass we walk on: it’s like a self-sufficient chef who cooks up its own meals using sunlight.
A human year is not the same as a dog year. You might have thought that dogs age seven times faster than we do, but it’s not that simple. A dog that’s been around for one year is, in fact, already 31. It will most likely even have its own little puppies running around. But here’s where it gets tricky. 2 human years don’t necessarily mean that your dog is 62, either. Your buddy will need to be about 4 in our years before it reaches old age. A 4-year-old dog will be 50, but a 7-year-old dog will be 62, and an 8-year-old dog will only be 64. So, they age faster but also slower and slower as time passes by. The next time you’re celebrating your best bud’s birthday, be sure to put lots of candles on the cake and buy even more presents than you normally would!
Neon signs and holographic ad banners all around, synth music from invisible speakers — it feels as if you’ve entered some cyberpunk utopia, but in fact, this is a huge mall department where a notorious shoe designer presents their latest collection of sneakers.You’ve been saving up for months to buy this model, so your hands are slightly shaking with excitement. You and other buyers are handed a contract to sign. It says you won’t make a claim against the sneakers’ creator after you put on their new shoes. You sign the document and press on into a large hall with a glass wall. The wall is divided into hundreds of square sections with treasured pairs of sneakers inside. There are big hammers with glowing neon heads on the floor. To get the sneakers, you need to break the glass. You readily do it and take your chosen pair.
Imagine you’re a movie director looking for beautiful landscapes to shoot a movie. You walk along the picturesque Paraná River and find a perfectly round island in its delta. It’s slightly larger than a soccer field. You come back a few days later and see that the island has changed its position! It’s moved a little to the side and spun around its axis.
The Amazon River travels through 9 South American countries at a length of over 4,000 miles. Still, it’s impossible to cross it by a bridge. With the river being the main highway traveling through this dense forest and so few areas populated around the river, there’s just no reason to have one. The river can rise up to 30 feet, and the river crossings that were only 3 miles wide can expand to over 30 miles in just a few short weeks in certain spots, making a bridge nearly impossible to build here.
Analog television never had a channel 37. Land on that channel, and you’d probably just get static. It’s not like missing the 13th floor in a building — channel 37 is an entirely different story. To go on the air, channel 37 would have to transmit from the 610 MHz band. This was the same frequency that the observatory of the University of Illinois needed for radio astronomy. So, if this channel occupied up the 610 MHz frequency somewhere within 600 miles from the observatory, it would have interfered with their giant 400-foot-long telescope, which is one of our windows into the universe. The radius here is huge. It literally envelops all of the East Coast, together with major cities like Detroit, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and St. Louis.
