What If We Killed All Spiders?

They’re in your yard, on your walls, in your attic, and there’s probably one near you right now. The thought of these creepy crawlers might make you want to go on an immediate spider crusade. With global numbers in the quadrillions, it would be 2.8 million spiders versus every human. My bet is on the spiders. Maybe with a large-scale international effort, spiders could be eradicated. Just imagine a spider free world! What would happen to other bugs? Would we see an increase in disease? How would it change the future of medicine?

19 Things Make You Wonder What That’s For

If you’re looking to fill your brain with amazing facts to impress your friends, you’ve come to the right place. These cool facts will turn anyone into an expert at the dinner table and be the start of an entertaining conversation. No scientific degree required. Have you ever wondered, for example, why pencils are yellow and pool tables green?

Do you know why toothpaste tubes have color bars on them? Or why taxis are yellow? Or why keyboards aren’t in alphabetical order? These types of questions have popped up in our minds at least once. While we imagine that we google everything we see and don’t know, there are still innumerable subtle things that are so common we take them for granted and don’t know much about them.

26 Psychological Tricks to Convince People to Do What You Want

In a room full of people, do you tend to hide in the corner? Blend into the wallpaper? Maybe even sneak under the rug? Even the shyest people can use certain psychological techniques that will persuade others to listen to them.

For example, if you don’t feel comfortable meeting new people or talking in front of an audience, trick your brain into believing that you do! If you need someone to agree with you, nod your head while you’re speaking. Your companion is likely to subconsciously mirror you and start nodding in response. So, guys, if you wanna communicate in a more confident way, these ideas also help you to make a good first impression, improve your communication skills, and attract attention.

#psychologicaltricks #getwhatyouwant #brightside

SUMMARY:
– If you expect that someone might disagree with your opinion, take a seat not across from this person but next to them.
– Even the shiest and most reserved people love talking about themselves.
– Eye contact is a crucial part of any social interaction, but how long it lasts is even more important.
– The best way to make people think about some idea is to repeat it again and again.
– To help people in your social environment to trust you, admit your unimportant mistakes to others.
– If you need a person to do something for you, ask them to do you a bigger favor first.
– After you get to know someone’s name, use it a couple of times right away. It’ll help you to reinforce the name in your mind.
– Do NOT repeat your companion’s gestures. You’re supposed to only assume a similar overall body posture!
– After finishing your speech during a meeting or negotiations, look people in the eye and wait in silence. A determined look always affects how other people perceive your words.
– The human brain is wired in a funny way: it believes that when you eat, you’re safe.
– If you want someone to make a particular choice, provide them with a list of at least three options, with the one you need them to pick being the last.
– Be as direct with what you want from people as possible. If you use the phrase “I need you to…,” people will believe that you have the authority to request something (even if you don’t).

Why Colored Toilet Paper Disappeared

The first colored TP appeared in the 1950s, when decorating your bathroom in a single style was a thing. Toilet paper producers started dyeing their products in all possible colors so that people could complete the image of their bathrooms. The popularity of colored toilet paper reached its peak by 1970s, but sometime around the 1980s, personal hygiene shelves became gradually whiter, and by 2004 all color disappeared completely…
