Your brain is such a worthless slacker. I’ll prove it.
Relax and stare at this image for a while. After said while (thirty seconds…ish), the colours will begin to disappear (no it’s not a gif). You can even make them go away completely.
What’s happening is called Troxler’s Fading. After a while of receiving the same non-changing information, your brain gets bored and just discards the information because it’s too busy keeping an eye out for more pressing, changing information, like tiger attacks.
You know how when you wear a watch for a while you stop noticing it. Same thing. Your brain is an idiot.
It is pretty though.

The following isn’t scientifically backed up or anything, but it’s a list I’ve composed from various websites whose source I’ll put at the bottom!
Natural Disasters: Since the weather is unpredictable it’s said to represent the stress and anxiety in the person’s life
Seeing the dead: A reflection of an inability to let go
Missing important events: Anxiety about failing and not meeting expectation 
Naked: Person may suffer from self-image issues and low self-esteem issues
Teeth falling out: Inner turmoil on being judged by others based on physical appearance
Injuries: Feeling vulnerable in a part of your life
Partner leaving: Dread of being alone, being not good enough for the partner
Being trapped: Unable to get out of current situation (dead end job, negative relationship)
Falling: The feeling that one is unable to control a certain aspect of their life
Being chased/attacked: Being afraid to confront something in your life
Technology malfunction: Such as a phone not working, represents failing to reach out to someone on an emotional level
I got these from listverse and howstuffworks

Teeth falling out/rotting can also be indicative of stress and anxiety! Nakedness also indicates vulnerability the person doesn’t want to feel. Also, a couple of others I’ve been asked about that have been missed:
Being killed: It’s not actually impossible to die in dreams, despite what everyone says. Represents feeling disappointed and acting in a way that’s not compatible with your feelings (i.e., doing something you don’t want to do just to keep others happy).
Dog attacks: Someone you thought to be loyal is against you or plans to betray you. Represents a friend or friends you shouldn’t trust, especially if the dog is black.
Fire: To dream you are burning means your temper is getting out of control. If a house is on fire, it’s symbolic of needing a change; if you are trapped in a burning house, it represents you feeling insecure about your ability to make changes. To dream you are setting something or someone alight means you are struggling with anger.
Drowning: Dreaming that you are drowning means you are being overwhelmed by emotions, and need to take things slower and more carefully.
Being inexplicably hated or disliked: Hate in dreams represents repressed aggression and fear of confrontation. To dream you are hated by people who should love you indicates worry that you’ve done something to upset or hurt them, or guilt over actions or words that haven’t been resolved yet. It can also be a sign of insecurity over how important you are to others.

Thanks for making this more awesome :)

Why We Still Need Print Newspapers

It’s hard not to bask in the glow of the Internet when it provides you with such a convenient way to access such a vast amount of news and information. But here are some things that your digital news can’t do~

Walk through a giant 115 feet tall replica of the human body at the Corpus Science Museum in the Netherlands. Your Fantastic Voyage through the museum starts with an escalator ride into an open sore on your giant victim’s leg and ends among the pulsing neurons in his brain.  Explore the ventricles of the heart….

SIE SIN DAS ESSEN UND WIR SIND DIE JAGER

First of all, that first statement is an overgeneralization. Not every Chinese person is going to be skilled at math of course. It’s ignorant to go into these stereotypes. 

But try this:

4,8,5,3,9,7,6.

Read them out loud to yourself. Now look away, and spend twenty seconds memorizing that sequence before saying them out loud again.

If you speak English, you have about a 50 percent chance of remembering that sequence perfectly If you’re Chinese, though, you’re almost certain to get it right every time. 

Why is this? 

One explanation is because the Chinese language allows them to read numbers faster. 

Chinese number words are remarkably brief. Most of them can be said in less than 1/4th of a second (for instance, 4 is ‘si’ and 7 ‘qi’)

Their English equivalents—”four,” “seven”—are longer: pronouncing them takes about 1/3 of a second. 

The English number system is also VERY illogical. 

For example, right after the word 10, instead of saying one-ten, two-ten, three-ten we have different words like 11,12. 

Not so in China, Japan and Korea. They have a logical counting system. Eleven is ten one. Twelve is ten two. Twenty-four is two ten four, and so on.

That difference means that Asian children learn to count much faster. Four year old Chinese children can count, on average, up to forty. American children, at that age, can only count to fifteen, and don’t reach forty until they’re 5 years old.

The regularity of their number systems also means that Asian children can perform basic functions—like addition—far more easily.

Ask an English seven-year-old to add thirty-seven plus twenty two, in her head, and she has to convert the words to numbers (37 + 22).

 Ask an Asian child to add three-tens-seven and two tens-two, and no translation is necessary.

Huh. That’s really interesting!

This makes so much more sense than the racist bullshit people come up with.

this applied to Thai language as well. 

You should listen how Asian children recite the times table.

Leandro Erlich, Swimming Pool (1999) @ The 21 st. Century Museum of Art of Kanazawa, Permanent Collection

Erlich has constructed a full-size pool, complete with all its trappings, including a deck and a ladder. When approached from the first floor, visitors are confronted with a surreal scene: people, fully clothed, can be seen standing, walking, and breathing beneath the surface of the water. It is only when visitors enter the Duplex gallery from the basement that they recognize that the pool is empty, its construction a visual trick fashioned by the artist. A large, continuous piece of acrylic spans the pool and suspends water above it, creating the illusion of a standard swimming pool that is both disorienting and humorous.
