Why Do Planes Pour Salt Over Clouds?



Hey, what's wrong with that plane? It's flying over your head, moving in circles! Has it lost its way? Are there some problems with its navigation systems? Nah, calm down. It's just sprinkling salt over the clouds. It's called cloud seeding. Everyone knows for sure rock salt is used to prevent people from slipping and cars from skidding off the road in the winter. But why would we need to do it in the sky?! Well, drought is a big problem in many places all over the planet. A lack of drinking water, parched soil, wilting plants… And cloud seeding could solve this problem once and for all. To put it simply, the whole process is sowing clouds with chemicals to make it snow or rain. But how exactly does this thing work? And why do some people are skeptical about the cloud-seeding idea? Let's find out! #brightside British Airways Concorde G-BOAC: By Eduard Marmet, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=5810282

30 Past Habits Stunned Even My History Teacher



When people speak about ancient times, they basically envision uneducated people who gathered harvest and believed in evil spirits and curses. But those are stereotypes that live in our minds. For example, what do we know about ancient Egyptians, Greeks, or Romans? The Egyptian invented paper, mummified pharaohs, and they built mysterious pyramids — the secrets of which still haven’t been uncovered by the leading scientists of the world. Of course, all of this is extremely interesting, but there are many other, no less impressive, facts about Ancient Egypt. What’s more, Egyptians’ weekdays were much brighter and hectic than we can imagine. Did you know, for example, that the Egyptians were probably the first seafarers? They made ships out of reeds, wood, and papyrus. Or that the Greeks prized their dogs, and would do anything to protect them? They even invented that spiky dog collar everyone’s wearing these days. Or that the first university was in India almost 3,000 years ago. It had about 10,000 students and 60 different subjects. We decided to open up the curtains of history and found some really interesting facts about ancient people that you will neither read in history books nor see in Hollywood blockbusters. #brightside

Not Even My Biology Teacher Knew All 41 Body Facts



Scientists reveal new discoveries about the human body almost every day, and some of them sound very surprising to us. We made a collection of facts that suggests there is something really powerful about our bodies. Did you know for, example, that your brain generates electricity, and it’d be enough to light up a small lightbulb, if you could only figure out how? Or that tongue has a lot of fat in it? And if you gain weight, your tongue does too! Most people think they have 5 senses. But that’s not true. Scientists don’t yet know themselves, but they think there’re more than 20. There’s sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste, and there’re other senses like time, hunger and thirst. Then there’s proprioception – the sense of where your body is in space. Interested? Then check out these unusual facts about your body that you might’ve not even thought about. #brightside Male Homo sapiens and Pan troglodytes hyoid bones: By Ruggero D’Anastasio, Stephen Wroe, Claudio Tuniz, Lucia Mancini, Deneb T.

20+ Things You Forgot to Google What It’s For



In our daily lives, we are surrounded by lots of objects that seem so common we don’t even stop to think why they are really needed and how they appeared. Did you know, for example, that those two holes on a side of any Converse shoe are there not only to let the stinky air out? Sure, breathability is important for any athlete. The second reason is that athletes lace through those holes to get a better grip. Donuts have a hole in the middle. No, it's not designed for an easier grip. It's actually made this way for mass baking so that they cook all the way through evenly. Most metallic zippers have a hidden lock inside them to save you from awkward situations such as an undone fly. Bath foam isn’t only for fun or a nice smell – it also helps regulate the temperature. The bubbles keep the water hot, so you can enjoy a bath a bit longer! So, as you may have guessed, today, we'll tell you about the extraordinary purposes of the most ordinary things. #brightside We know how to lift your mood!

10 Habits Reveal All Your Secrets to the World



After many tests and lots of paperwork, researchers have noticed some connections between habits and personality traits. Punctuality, the way a person carries a bag, or how one attaches a roll of toilet paper can say a little more about character than you think. In fact, you can become a modern Sherlock Holmes and surprise someone with not-so-obvious conclusions based on their everyday habits. For example, we can learn a lot about a person by simply looking at their social media profile.privacy settings perfectly reflect how much people are comfortable with sharing with others. People who have many friends on social media are usually self-conscious and tend to have low self-esteem. But if the person posts a lot of self-promotional content like selfies, they’re likely to be narcissistic. The same goes for those who update their status very often. It means the person is trying to promote themselves and is seeking admiration. We decided to learn more about habits and want to share some of our curious findings with you. #brightside

Why You Shouldn’t Make Your Bed and 19 Tips for Better Sleep



Making your bed in the morning makes you happier and helps you get a healthier night’s sleep afterward, a study suggests. But sometimes, even the most harmless habits may have some not so harmless effects, as scientists come up with new discoveries that feel like a bucket of cold water has been poured on our heads. We like to look at things from different angles, so we invite you to find out how an ordinary morning routine can actually affect you. We've also put together a list of fascinating facts about sleep and tips that might be useful for you if you have some sleep problems. We spend about one-third of our life sleeping. And although from the outside it seems like nothing but a routine, if we take time to think about it, it is just the opposite: there is a whole world of details and curiosities that we would not suspect at first glance. Did you know, for example, that most people feel tired twice a day: at 2 am and 2 pm? But since humans are the only mammals who can delay their sleep willingly, most of us never have an afternoon nap at 2 pm. #brightside

If You Don’t Look Like Your Parents, That’s Why



Genetics is a lot like a game of chance: there are 30,000 genes in 46 chromosomes you carry, and a combination of those determines what you look like. But all of those genes come from your family tree and nowhere else. So if you have light hair, blue eyes, and are a great singer, while your parents are dark-haired, brown-eyed, and have no ear for music at all, some of your ancestors must’ve had those qualities too. Anyway, you inherit 23 chromosomes from either of your parents and then they start their interplay. Think of it as a sports competition: whichever team wins determines the traits the child acquires. Some of the “players” on one team are inherently stronger than their opponents — they’re called dominant genes. Their counterparts on the other team are recessive genes. But why are children end up looking more like one of their parents than the other? #brightside
