Weird tentacled moth freaks out the Internet - Unexplained Mysteries

Well of course it's harmless, it's a moth! Moths are cute and harmless. Plus, looking up the species on the net, this thing is tiny! Yeah the tentacles look kinda freaky, my guess would have been that it either has a parasite or that it somehow carries it's eggs and it's babies were hatching. Turns out it's a natural part of it's body. Nature is interesting.

hehehe. Puh-lease? Moths are adorable: (this one likes to be petted and wants to be your friend) And some, like the Lunar Moth are gorgeous: (but yeah, everybody has stuff they don't like)

Moon photobombs the Sun on NASA images - Unexplained Mysteries

Sneak little Moon, always trying to get camera time. Quick question - The black areas on the Sun in the picture, are they UV "dead spots" or just lower intensity areas?

THat's what I tell the kiddies ... in some respect that they are in fact, munching on dinos when they are biting into a McChicken ... ~ If that be the case then I am sure they will wrap me up in a loin cloth ... ~

Huge magnetic tail discovered behind Mars - Unexplained Mysteries

With this revelation, I can't decide which is more interesting to explore first, the cause of Mars' magneto tail or the recently discovered cave of the Moon.

DARPA Unveils New Device That Increases Learning By 40%

DARPA Unveils New Device That Increases Learning By 40%

DARPA Unveils New Device That Increases Learning By 40% A simple headband can increase cognitive ability by 40%. Over the past few years, there has been a massive surge forward in devices designed to create so-called technologically enhanced individuals. While these designs have mainly be created with those with physical disabilities in mind, it is widely predicted that this technology will shortly move into the mainstream. Many of the designs that have emerged in recent years have been fairly cumbersome pieces of technology but not the most recent development from researchers from HRL Laboratories and McGill University in Montreal, with funding from the Defense Advance Research Project Agency (DARPA) which has recently presented a simple headband which they claim can improve cognitive ability by an astounding 40%. The initial stages of the study tested the device on macaque monkeys. The monkeys in the study were given the task of learning associations between a visual stimulus and a location where they could retrieve a reward. Without the headband fitted, the macaque monkeys took an average of twenty-two trials to correctly learn how to locate and find their rewards. However, while they were wearing the headband it only took them an average of twelve trials to collect their rewards, suggesting an increase in the cognitive ability of 40%. The device works by applying a small current to a region of the brain known as the prefrontal cortex. This current is known to cause alterations in connectivity between different areas of the brain and thereby increase cognitive ability. It has been previously suggested that the current causes an increased firing of neurons and this action enhance cognitive ability. However, the team at the University of Montreal and HRL Laboratories found that it was modulated connectivity between different brain areas that accounted for the increase in learning speed. The researchers now hope to begin human testing on their astounding invention. According to the team supervisor Parveen Pilly, after FDA approval of the device, they hope that it will be widely used within the course of five to ten years. Related Articles

Einstein's 'secret to happiness' revealed - Unexplained Mysteries

Einstein's 'secret to happiness' revealed Posted on Tuesday, 24 October, 2017 | 51 comments Einstein had written the notes in place of a tip to a hotel courier. Image Credit: Ferdinand Schmutzer Albert Einstein's handwritten notes on the secret to living a happy life have resurfaced after 95 years. One of the most celebrated scientists in history, Albert Einstein's name itself has become synonymous with the concept of genius thanks to his myriad of contributions to the field of physics. His interests however were not simply limited to science, as evidenced by an extraordinarily rare set of notes that he wrote for a courier all the way back in 1922. Einstein had been staying at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo during a lecture tour in Japan when he realized he did not have any spare change on-hand to tip the courier. To compensate, he handed the man two handwritten notes and said - "maybe if you're lucky those notes will become much more valuable than just a regular tip." Fast-forward to the present day and now both notes are set to fetch a fortune at auction in Jerusalem. "A quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest," one reads, while on the other Einstein wrote simply - "where there's a will, there's a way." "What we're doing here is painting the portrait of Einstein - the man, the scientist, his effect on the world - through his writings," said Einstein archivist Roni Grosz. "This is a stone in the mosaic." Source: Telegraph | Comments (51) Tags: Einstein

Einstein's 'secret to happiness' revealed - Unexplained Mysteries

LOL, I have no idea Will but that seems to be the latest rage in the US now, tear down history is if it disagrees wit your social justice warrior philosophy. It disgusts me. History is ugly, learn from it, answer your kids questions and teach them why it was wrong but don't repeat the worst aspects of it like burning books and tearing down the past. I live in Virginia and have enjoyed explaining to my very bright young son why the Civil War was fought and the horrible path we traveled to get to it. Wonderful museums in my area as well. I agree with you Chris but of course we can't know a... [More]

Einstein's 'secret to happiness' revealed - Unexplained Mysteries

I live in SoCal, not born but raised here. One of my brothers lives in Maryland. My wife and I visited a few years ago, what a beautiful part of the country. We visited some of the Battlefields when were there. Antietam was especially moving. History has always fascinated me, so what they're trying to do by removing those statues really disgusts me too. I'm sure though, since the real place where kids are influenced, educated and loved is in the home, all of that nonsense will be overcome I hope. Nonetheless, I'm keeping my seatbelt on.
