Australia has some of the deadliest animals, mostly snakes and the Box Jellyfish, in the world. I didn't expect to see Orcas in New Zeland.

The 7 Smartest Animals In The World | Answers With Joe
The long thought figure of 100 billion neurons for humans has been disproven. The correct number is 86 billion. Dogs have 2.25. billion. Cats have 0.75 billion. I think that it is safe to say that dogs exhibit more behaviors than cats, but cats are brilliant at being cats. Ants only have 7 thousand. The house fly has 100 thousand, bees have 960 thousand, while cockroaches and praying mantises have 1 million.

How Large is the Universe? Bigger than you can Imagine?
The universe that we can see is so large that it might as well be infinite. Our little solar system is like a speck of dust by comparison. That part of the universe that we can't see may actually be infinite, but we might never know.

The Challenger Disaster: STS-51-L Helicopter Camera
I recently watched a 4 episode documentary on Netflix about the Challenger disaster. This event happened at an important time in my life shortly after the death of my father in 1986. The documentary demonstrates that people knew there was a problem and made poor decisions because they considered the risk to be minor.
I just happened to come across a video on youtube that shows the disaster from a slightly different perspective than what I have seen before.

Features English is missing - but most other languages have
Some, if not most, languages have many more variations on verb tenses, as well as more variations on pronouns. This imparts more meaning, but English uses helper words.

This is what a Mensa IQ test looks like
I find IQ test questions interesting. In particular, I got fascinated by #8 in this video. She doesn't give the answer, but I figured out the pattern by doing the square of 63 in my head.
I have one problem with some of these questions ...
Imagine if you had two pairs of numbers like so ...
Five is to six as 10 is to ____? Well, by one rule you would have 11 as an answer, but by another rule, you would have 12 as an answer. If you have just a number problem then they would most likely make it unambiguous, but I feel like some geometric shape problems can be confusing because I'm not sure which rule to use. For example, in one problem she had to base things off of the geometric center, which I did not think to do. In another problem, she seemed to go backward, like 1 is to 2 as 4 is to 3. In a completely different test, they had shapes arranged in 3 by 3 grid, so I wasn't sure if I was supposed to look at these shapes horizontally or vertically. Again, I wasn't sure which rule to use.
In the above video, I was confused by #7. The problem is like this ...
1, 0, -1, 0. What is the next logical number?
I am guessing that the four numbers are the cosine of 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees respectively. Then the next number is the cosine of 360 degrees, which is 1.
However, they might be looking for something completely different. What if these are two pairs of grid coordinates? What if there is some other pattern I am missing?

Can This Deadly New Virus Destroy the Human Race?
Many of the recent scary diseases have come from China, which makes sense given the large population base and population density. More than half the world's population lives within a circle in Southern Asia including China and India.

This Guy Eats Fruit For The First Time Ever
I think that this guy had some obsessive disorder against fruit. People have different tastes, which is obvious because there are a handful of foods that I can't stand. I don't like Tapioca and Rice pudding because of the texture. If I could get over my hangup over the texture I would probably enjoy their sweetness. I feel the same way about sauerkraut, although the taste has much to do with it. Foods that are too acidic taste kind of gross, like hot and sour soup which I can barely tolerate. I don't like weird breads like Rye, and I don't like blue cheese dressing because it tastes bitter to me.
