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.

When it comes to fame and public attention, many high-profile individuals view it as a burden. They proactively take steps to protect their privacy, including safeguarding their homes, children, and personal information.

This constant curiosity can further drive celebrities to be more guarded about their true selves. A prime example is Jodie Foster, who deliberately and gradually revealed her authentic self to the world over time.
What’s going on? Everything’s blurry. You don’t remember what happened the night before. All you can recall is falling asleep on your couch after a hectic day at work. You rub the sleep from your eyes, get up, and look around. You’re in a tiny studio filled with different trinkets and weird objects. There’s a kitchenette next to the door and a small bathroom. You go to wash your face, and when you look in the mirror, you start screaming. Realizing you’re being too loud, you immediately cover your mouth with your hands. Your eyes in the mirror are unnaturally large, and your skin and hair are perfect. You touch your face to check if this is real.

While some people are perfectly fine with discussing their age, for others, it’s a dreaded topic. In most cultures, asking one’s age is inappropriate once we become adults, so it comes as no surprise that fibbing about our age is one of the most common lies. People usually distort or embellish the truth in a way to make them younger, but in some cases, they’ll do the opposite. In the entertainment industry, age can be an especially sensitive topic.
There’s probably no one in the world that has never lied. Sometimes, we do it in order to not offend our relatives, especially our children that are not always ready to hear the actual truth from their parents.

Bright Side dug into a recent study done on dogs which found out that if you knowingly lie to your dog, it can sniff out the truth. Here are the surprising results.

About 69% of parents are not willing to talk to their kids about their money situation, a study found. And about 61% of parents had the discussion, but only when their kids asked a question about their finances. This might come from a place of fear, where parents don’t want their kids to worry. Whatever the reasons are, stay tuned to find out what other things parents have trouble explaining to their kids.
We’re lied to 10 to 200 times a day and, naturally, we lie to ourselves too. As kids, we were taught that lying was bad, but that’s not always true.

An artist, Marina Bistrova, has 2 kids who serve as the main sources of inspiration for her work.

Think about how many small lies you have told in the last 24 hours and you may realize that it’s a lot. We so often find ourselves telling little lies to make others feel better about themselves, but when we start only telling the truth, our friends may not like us so much. We may change how we see ourselves after receiving brutally honest feedback, as well as become more accepting of others.
There are so many tricks filmmakers use that can manipulate our perception and make us see things the way they want us to see them.

And that being said, color is an incredibly powerful tool that can be used to do this as well.

Lying to your kids when they’re young can not only create problems for the future but also affect them in the present. If your children realize they’re being lied to, like for example, when they’re told they’re going out to the park, but instead they end up at the doctor’s office, they might develop trust issues. We at Bright Side understand that lying is wrong, and want to show you how kids can be affected by this.
When we’re children, we are full of innocence and see the world in a very different way than adults do. Sometimes we can’t understand how serious some of the issues our parents are talking about are. And because parents are aware of this, they might tell us little white lies so that we do the things they want us to do. For example, they’ll say things a certain way in order to get us to eat our veggies and not just skip right to dessert.
Is lying the same as keeping the truth to yourself? That’s a question for the ages. Fortunately, for many actors, the answer remains a sort of grey area. Thanks to this, they’ve managed to pull off a few teeny-tiny lies that got them important parts. Rebel Wilson, for example, hid her real age for a long time. But some other fellow actors simply went all the way, and lied about being able to ride horses or play the drums. Many directors have had to come up with creative solutions to such lies that actors told during casting.
Parents wish their children only the best but sometimes, they unintentionally hurt them with their love and overprotection. They might send mixed signals, ignore their children’s opinions, or break the rules they’ve set themselves. And even if the adults mean well, such actions can make kids feel confused and unsure of how they should act in the world.
Logic and common sense are our best tools for solving problems in our heads, helping us find the best solution that will lead us to the best results.
