6 Body Oddities 99% of People Have, but You Might Be an Exception
It’s unbelievable but true: for some reason almost every person, regardless of where they were born, have these marks of incomprehensible origin on their index fingers. During the discussion, network users found out that there were other suspicious things that are inherent in almost every inhabitant on Earth.
Today Bright Side will try to understand this strange phenomenon and determine whether it’s a simple coincidence or if there’s a logical explanation behind these anomalies. And we bet we’ll surprise you with something!
Do you also have a scar on your index finger?
First, journalist Oleg Kashin mentioned this in his tweet, suggesting that this scar was only found on men’s fingers. But it soon became clear that women also have scars on their index fingers.
Explanation: most likely, the reason is statistics. If you are a right-handed person, the scar on your left index finger probably appeared after you cut yourself with a knife in the kitchen or after working with a hammer and nails.
Do you have white blemishes on your left knee? Perhaps on both?
Take a closer look. These are especially noticeable when you have a tan. Some have more, some have less. Models use a foundation and powder to hide them.
Explanation: Everyone has fallen on their knees as a child, and those white spots are what is left of the sores. If you are left-handed, you’ll have more white spots on your right knee, and if you’re right-handed you’ll have more on the left.
One eye can see better than the other.
Close one eye and look into the distance. Then open it and close the other one. If you are over 20 years old and do not wear glasses, then for sure one eye will see worse than the other.
Explanation: Most often, there is nothing to worry about. Usually, one eye leads, and the brain relies on it to get the full picture. Because of this, it can see more clearly. Still, you should check your eyes regularly: sometimes seeing a blurred image when looking at a long distance with one eye can be a symptom of a disease or age-related changes.
You can lift your left eyebrow, or both at once, but not just the right one...
Most likely, you can raise your left eyebrow or both. But you cannot lift the right eyebrow apart without lifting the left one. It can also be the opposite: the right eyebrow rises, but the left one does not.
Explanation: Nerves and muscles are not quite symmetrical, so there are some things that half of the body does better than the other. Although some manage to lift each eyebrow independently, it’s extremely rare.
You can kind of do the “monocle” but not the “binoculars”.
Footballer Dele Alli can do some incredible stuff with his hands. He posts these strange finger gestures on his Instagram, and users try to recreate them and post their own photos with the #DeleAlliChallenge hashtag.
Explanation: These tricks are easy to do for children because they have flexible fingers and young joints. In this case, the “monocle” of 2 fingers is easy enough for adults to do, but only few can pull off the “glasses” of 4 fingers.
Do you have a birthmark? Is it near the knee or in the armpit?
Many birthmarks disappear during the first years of a person’s life, but some remain forever. And most often they are located in the armpit, closer to the back, or next to the knee, on the inside of the thigh.
Explanation: Every 10th person is born with a birthmark. Most of those that remain noticeable on the skin throughout their whole life are formed next to the armpit or on the leg. The reasons for this are still unclear.
Did you recognize these traits on yourself? Or maybe you know some other features that everyone has?
