10 Secret Societies in the World

January 6, 2013 Leave a comment

We have always been hearing of different sorts of secret societies in the world. More often than not, a conspiracy theory is based around one or more than one of these hidden secret socieites. According to general conception, the sole concept of these organizations or societies is too claim world hegemony and this is precisely why, most of the world events that have a global impact, whether positive or negative, is linked to them!  I am sure that most of you must have heard of more than a few of the societies listed under but this list is an all en-compassing document of all the societies that there are. There are many famous leaders and personalities from around the globe that have been known to have a link (whether minor or major) to one or more of these hidden agencies! Read it for yourself!

Freemasons

This is touted to be one of the largest most influential of all the secret societies! The society was formed in the 1700s but the documents that are evidence to its existence are as old as the 1300s. Personalities such as Winston Churhcill, Mark Twain, Henry Ford, and a host of others are known to be Mason Masters. Their rules have changed since the past days but critics maintain that they have occult ways! Read more…

10 Amazing Things You Didn’t know About Dreams

January 6, 2013 Leave a comment

Dreams are a very important part of our lives because for some that is actually the real world (unfortunately) and then for some, it is an escape, and then for others it carries messages and signs. The science of dreams is very interesting but listed below are some even more unknown aspects of dreams that might interest you.

Epic Dreams

Dreams that completely changed a person after he or she woke up from it, are known as epic dreams. Some people who have seen epic dreams have also experienced dreams within dreams, and eventually a life altering phenomenon!

Marijuana and Dreams

Doctors have found that those taking marijuana had eventually suffered from a complete loss of dreams and after they stopped taking it, the experienced what could only be called vivid dreams. This proves that marijuana messes with the REM of a person.

Difference in dreams of different genders

So here are the amusing differences between the dreams of men and women. Where women have longer dreams, filled with emotions, and with places and people they know, men’s dreams are shorter, void of emotion and normally involving places and people unknown to the dreamer!

Dreams and Psychosis

Here is a thought, if a person has a continuously disturbed REM, it can eventually lead to psychosis. REM is the Rapid Eye Movement Sleep, for those who didn’t know.

Dreams of the Blind

There is something you did not know, even the blind people have dreams. They only dream sense and sounds, no images unfortunately.

Dreams inspire great ideas

Vincent Van Gogh claimed that he dreamed his paintings and then he painted those dreams and this stands true for a lot of different great inventions. They were dreamed first!

Children’s Nightmares

Believe it or not, children have more nightmares than adults, specially in the age where they cannot speak. Some people also believe that when children cannot speak, they see the exact future in their dreams! Creepy no?

Dreams are forgotten

More than 90% of the dreams are forgotten! Yes, no wonder we do not remember what goes on when we sleep most of the times.

Dreams of Animals

It seems hard to believe but yes, animals also dream. The pattern varies from dogs to cats to birds ofcourse but doctors claim that all mammals can dream period.

Brain Activity during dreams

Now this is a rather interesting find, that the cortex of the brain is more often than not, more active then it is when a person is asleep! A very bad case of this is when the brain does not shut off at all even if coma is induced, which then causes fatal insomnia!

10 Bizzarre Guiness World Records

January 6, 2013 Leave a comment

Going through the Guinness book of world records is a favorite pass time hobby for a lot of us. I am sure that not all of us remember all of the weird records that are listed there. We have all seen various kinds of records that were made and then broken but in this article, I will be bringing to you some of the strangest world records ever!

Read on to find out exactly to what extremes people go to get on the Guinness Book of World Records! Do share your thoughts in comment section.

The Worlds Longest Diary

Robert Shields of Washington, is in the habit of writing a diary everyday from 1972 to 1996! The diary is more than 35 million words long and considered to be the longest diary in the world!

1016 Piercings

Robison who graduated from a high school in Ottawa decided to get 1200 but found it so painful that he just settled for breaking the record after which all but the record breaking piercing was left in his body! The previous record was that of 1015 so he just got 1016 done!

Most T-shirts worn

Wearing the most T-shirts at one time is a record that is held by David Alexander who wore exactly 121 t-shirts to break the previous record.

Largest Display of Star Wars Clone Troopers

LEGO® in the U.K built the largest collection of Star Wars troopers clones which are entirely built up of plastic lego bricks and nothing else. The collection was displayed in 2008 and there are as many as 35,310 models of Star Wars troopers in there!

Largest Smurf Collection

Steven Parkes who is a British national started collecting stuff toys and key chains of the Smurfs when he was merely a child and it soon became a habit! He now has more than 1100 pieces now that include Chritmas Smurfs, Smurfs dressed as historical figures, and Smurfs related to Easter!

Maximum number of people dancing to Thriller

Hector Jackson, an impostor of the original Micheal Jackson decided to throw him a tribute! So what he did was that he performed at the Monument of Revolution in Mexico City, the song titles “Thriller”, the same year that Michael had died. It is estimated that the number of people were around 13597!

The World’s Biggest Miser

Miss Hetty Green, however, she was a very rich lady and I certainly do mean very rich because she has nearly 107 million dollars in adjustment. The extent of her miserliness can judged from the fact that once her son broke a leg and she spent so much time looking for free medical treatment that the leg was amputated! Talk about being a miser, this woman is a total biaatch!

Tightest Frying Pan Roll

The record is held by Scott Murphy who rolled an aluminum frying pan with his bare hands into a circumference of 30 centimeters. It was a 12 inch aluminum pan. I would surely not like to be on the receiving end of a punch from those hands!

Eating an Airplane

The man called Michel Lotito ate up a Cessna 150 which is an airplane for those of you not in the know. It took him two years to eat the whole plane, the years in question being 1978 to 1980.

Eye Popping record

I reserved the weirdest for the last place so here goes. There is a guy from Belo Horizonte named Claudio Pinto. He is the first man in the world who can pop both of his eyes out nearly 95% or what would roughly be one and a half inch out of their respective sockets! YIKES!

10 Laws that are NEVER Obeyed!

December 20, 2012 Leave a comment

10 Laws that are NEVER Obeyed!

You know how we have always read that rules are supposed to be followed and that laws should always be obeyed. Well beleive it or not, there are some rules and laws in this world that are hardly ever followed or must I say, laws that are always broken. Smile all you want but read on and you shall be astonished!

So compiled below is a list of 10 laws that are never or hardly obeyed. Do share with us in comment section if we have missed out any.

 

No Reading in the bookstore

There are so many signs in bookstores that say that if you are not going to buy a book, please do not read it. Skimming through it is different, but whenever you walk into a book store, you will find people actually bunked around on the floor reading the books they never intend to buy.

Using the left lane to cross

If any of you reading this has a drivers license (which I am sure most of you do have actually) then I am sure that you must be aware of the fact that the left lane on the road is specifically for over taking- after which you are supposed to move back into the right lane! Be honest, how many times have you yourself followed this law?

No gambling at home

There are perhaps a gazillion laws that do not allow or forbid gambling of any sorts at home but be it christmas or easter, you shall see a lot of people actually having a game of poker or something else, but certainly gambling away after all that booze!

Washing hands before work

There are certain jobs that require that before people come back to work they should wash their hands. Nearly all of the food joints actually say this, but trust me, as gross as it might sound, this is also one of those rules that are hardly ever followed unless utmost necassary (deemed by the person himself ofcourse).

Shower before Swimming in the Pool

Same as the above one perhaps, but there are signs near every swimming pool insisting that the swimmers take a shower before they enter the pool just to ensure proper hygenic conditions of the pool water for the other swimmers but not only is this rule completely ignored by most of the people, it is increasingly violated as well, if you know what I mean ofcourse!

Don’t drive a car with the R sign

Now there are certain states in the world that require cars to  pass a certain, test, if you will, in order to qualify that the said vehicle is safe to drive. Incase they do not clear the test, a symbol R is placed on their front windows that is supposed to stand for “Rejected Inspection”. One cannot drive a car in such a situation but people still do, claiming, more often than not, that if they won’t drive it then how will they take it for repairs and maintenance! Score for them I say!

No Jaywalking

Now the law against Jaywalking is for the safety of the pedestrians, but more often than not, they are not only found jaywalking in the middle of a busy street but apparently dancing to tunes unknown to the people in the cars! Funny how they say the roads are dangerous then eh?

No Piracy

I think for this particular rule it will suffice to say that if it weren’t for piracy, most of the teenagers would spend their entire pocket money paying for online movies and music! That nearly sums it all up.

The Liscense to Sell

So you know how they say that you need to a license to sell anything and everything? Well that goes true for even a lemonade stand and judging by the fact that there are too many of those and other similar stands that one cannot even keep count, do you really believe that this law is being obeyed? Hell no people!

Cash Register Balance

And the last spot goes to the law that needs all the business and retail people out there to maintain a certain amount of cash in their register at all time. For various reasons, which includes random robberies as well, a very few people actually obey this law and most of them aren’t even aware that such a law even exists! Figure that!
