There are over 70 documented cases of transplant patients experiencing the same thoughts and feelings as their organ donors did in life. People report everything from craving the donors’ favorite foods, to inheriting their talents. It’s posed a theory that the cells in our body can store memories.  Source

The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

"Fearless" Felix Baumgartner is the 1st human to break the speed of sound without an aircraft. In 2012, he jumped from a capsule in space, 24 miles above New Mexico. He fell for over 4 minutes at 833 mph before he could open his parachute, then landed perfectly on his feet.  Source

Eugene Lazowski was a Polish doctor who risked the death penalty to save Jews during the Holocaust by faking an outbreak of Typhus. He spread the fake disease across the town of Rozwadów, which the Germans had to quarantine. His actions saved 8,000 people from going to concentration camps.  Source

    whisperedgalaxies said: Re: Swearing in America We don't have the most variation in our swearing, whereas a lot of other languages have swears that capture more levels of intensity that just doesn't translate. The interesting thing about "fuck" though is it is just so flexible (in american dialects). You can use it as nearly every part of speech. As a result, however, we don't use much else. As a reader from America, the use of swears in American Gods sounded very natural to me. -A linguistics major

    neil-gaiman:

    I agree. The glory of fuck is all the things you can do with it and all the things it can do. It’s an unbefuckinglievably useful swear word (used just there as an expletive infixation).
