Research Shows That If You Date a Shorter Man, You May Be Happier

Even then, bromance is still more relevant than we might think, because a study found that men find more emotional satisfaction in their bromance than in their romantic relationships.

We’re headed to the Middle East. There’s a large desert there, and it’s completely dark. Except for one spot — a big circle that glows with a bright orange light — the Darvaza Crater. And it’s basically just a giant gas burner. Years ago, geologists found gas here, and they started mining for it. But when they excavated, they came across a void underground. The void collapsed, and it formed a crater. This crater is as wide as half a soccer field and as deep as a five-story building. Gas began to come out of the cracks in the crater and since animals were often grazing in this area, the geologists decided to set these gas streams on fire to exhaust the source. Geologists thought the fire would be over in a day or two. But if you come here now, you’ll see this gateway to the underworld is still burning. And it’s been going on for almost 50 years.

If you could get into the time machine and travel back to 1969, you’d see something spectacular! What you’re looking at isn’t some random desert. It’s one of the most powerful waterfalls — completely dry! In the summer and fall of 1969, the American side of Niagara Falls stayed without water. It lasted 6 months. Researchers wanted to study the rock face of the falls. They were afraid it was going to become too unstable because of erosion. Erosion is the process when natural forces, such as water and wind, wear away earthen materials. For example, if you see glacial ice become muddy, it means erosion is happening.

TV Naps: Falling Asleep in Front of the TV Isn’t All Bad
Curiosities

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.
