Researchers Describe A New Hypothesis About Why The Female Orgasm Exists


A pair of scientists have a new hypothesis about why the female orgasm exists: It might have something to do with releasing an egg to be fertilized.

Scientists have puzzled over, and sometimes even questioned the existence of, a phenomenon that appears to have no physical effect on conception. While a male orgasm is crucial to impregnate a female, it is not obvious how a female orgasm affects whether she is impregnated.

In fact, Aristotle and Hippocrates both pointed out the female orgasm appears to be an afterthought, at least when it comes to creating offspring.

The theory would explain the modern reality that women do not experience orgasms as easily or as regularly as men.

The Hidden Security Bugs in Architecture That You Never Noticed | Atlas Obscura

The first thing many security heads will tell you about a building is how many doors it has.

They know exactly where all those exit and entry points are and what kind of protection guards each (key lock, electronic lock, automatic or timed lock, alarm, thorny plants, hidden camera, or a combination of securities).

Security experts don’t just look at architecture for its historical value, beauty or craftsmanship, but rather pay attention to the strategic possibilities the building allows criminals a means to break in.

The building is watching you.

Forget Rice Dry Out A Wet Phone and More With Silica Gel Bags



If you’ve been in this world longer than 10 years then you’ve purchased or received a product packaged with Silica Gel bags. Silica gel bags come packaged with shoes, electronic equipment, phones, tablets, and a host of other products where moisture control is important.

I used to toss the little white packets out with the packaging the new product came in until I read a story on the net about a man using the contents of the little bags to dry out a phone he’d dropped in a tub of water.

That led me to research what the little clear balls in those bags were made of. I discovered they were small blobs of silicon dioxide, which remove moisture from the surrounding air by attracting water particles onto their surface. In doing so, they protect other items from becoming damp and prevent the development of mold. Continue reading “Forget Rice Dry Out A Wet Phone and More With Silica Gel Bags”

Science Says People Who Cuss Are Smarter


It’s a common misconception that people who curse a lot are not as smart as people who don’t. You’ll often hear people say things like “Profanity is a sign of limited intelligence.” Or “Curse words are just a dumb person’s way of filling a sentence.” However, a new study has found that those who have a healthy repertoire of curse words at their disposal are more likely to have a richer vocabulary and higher language fluency than those who don’t. This challenges the long-held stereotype that people swear because they can’t find more intelligent words with which to express themselves.
