The future belongs to ants

Is very likely that you don’t think about ants as a real threat.

You might be thinking that they are not a big deal because they are small but the truth is that they are specially evil and powerful.

They will wait for you to go to sleep, climb on your face and bite you to death.

And your family.

We need to stop them before they take over.

 

Ants don’t belong to Earth

 

There is no need for us to preserve ants because they are invaders.

They are the worst animal invaders of all time.

Ants don’t play any positive role in our ecosystem because they don’t even belong here.

They’re just creating a blind trail of destruction and domination.

 

Ants kill everything

 

It’s not just that they’re horrible invaders but they’re actually destroying whole civilizations of other creatures.

They are also destroying the ecosystem.

First, they invaded and either got rid of or assimilated all of the larger, native ants.

Then, all the species that used to feed on those big ants will die and finally all of the animals that depended on this species will be also extinguished.

Ants actually benefits from destruction.

 

Poison doesn’t kill ants

 

Ants don’t die when you spray them with pesticide.

In fact and I know this is hard to believe, they do the opposite of dying.

They live even harder.

According to the National University of Manaus, spraying ants with pesticides causes them to lay more eggs.

Ants have already thought of our clever plans and they’re way ahead of us, metaphorically speaking.

They are all around us, literally speaking.

Benefits of being mean

 

We tend to think that relaxed and calm people are the healthiest and happiest in the world.

You wish.

There’s a reason humans still cling to the behaviors that get us tagged as assholes and that’s because they make us healthier.

 

Bad words

 

Most linguists agree that the reason we have such a thing as cursing in human language is because it’s help us release the pain.

 

Every time you smacking the closet door right in the middle of your face it seems to hurt a little less if you scream like a pig. 

That’s because cursing simply increase pain tolerance.

 

Gossip

 

We all know that being fat can take years off your life and that being ugly also because of the suffering it cause but did you know talking about how fat and ugly other people are can boost your health?

Yeah!

A study from the University of Michigan found that gossip has positive health benefits and is the main reason why women live longer than men.

Talking about other people lives help us bond with our friends and also reduce stress.

Gossip is like an RSS feed that keeps you constantly updated on the deviant your social circle is up to.

 

Anger

 

According to science, in the right situations, anger helps your blood pressure and general wellbeing.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon found that anger, in stressful situations; it was a much better alternative than just keep calm.

Choosing anger provides more positive effects on both blood pressure and mental health than calmness.

 

Complain

 

We all hate people who complain.

But not all complaining causes bad reactions.

In the right context complaining can actually boost the complainer’s health and immunity as well as the health of those who share the same complaints.

It’s all about the power of complaining in groups.

We are social animals and even bitching about things we can’t control gives us a boost if we do it in group.

Listening to music is very dangerous

Almost all of us loves music and connect with it but we need to watch out since science has proven that music severely affect our brains.

 

Time perception

 

To understand why exactly music makes it seem like less time has passed think of the human brain as a lion eating a bag of money.

It doesn’t matter what the zookeepers distract it with.

 

brain-and-music

 

All that matters is that they give another zookeeper the chance to sneak up and retrieve the money while the lion is busy deciding which one of them to eat.

Similarly when your brain is distracted by music you’ll be less likely to notice things around you and this includes time.

Our brains have limited input capacity and when something else is using up that capacity we’re less likely to think.

The tricky is that it works the opposite way, too.

In some situations listening to music can actually expand perceived time.

 

Drinking

 

Did you ever wake up in a stranger bed and wonder how your dress got replaced by a stranger shirt?

Now you have something to blame it on besides your bad childhood habits: music.

In a study held by the University of Champagne, different types of music playing in the background caused drinkers to change how they’d described the drinks they already had.

Laid back music led people to rate drinks as mellow and upbeat music resulted in more people calling their drinks refreshing.

 

Fear

 

There is a reason that horror films scare the crap out of us and it’s not just the creepy settings and the sudden reveal of the zombie right behind you.

It’s the music.

And sometimes the Steven Seagal.

There are certain sounds that we associate with death because they trigger evolutionary fear.

Screams of fear in almost any animal are made up of what scientists have dubbed discordant noises and any noise that makes you feel very unpleasant falls into this category.

Next time you’re getting freaked out by a movie remember that muting it is a better decision than looking away.

 

Communication

 

Studying music gives you an advantage when it comes to perceiving the emotions of others.

People who play instruments can detect subtle emotional changes in others voice tone.

Also, the fact that they studied music makes them better able to tune out background noise so they can pay attention to what you are saying even at loud places.

People who have studied music have brains wired differently and this rewiring makes them better able to express emotions they are feeling and more able to understand the emotions others express.

This may explain why Adam Levine is so afraid of announcing he is gay.

The world is ending

What happens with a party when they ran out of drinks? It ends

Same thing is happening with the Earth, we are running out of basic items.

Key resources we consume every day, pretty soon will disappear.

 

Chocolate

 

About 60% of the products we eat every day include chocolate.

With such an amazing figure in mind you may think that we have a sophisticated system in place to ensure that the world never runs out of it.

Wrong.

 

drought

 

 

The majority of the world’s cocoa supply comes from West Africa where the plantations are tended to by slave children.

Considering that children slavery is almost forbidden and that it takes up to five years to grow a new cocoa crop, chocolate will soon became a rare item.

Scientists anticipate that in fewer than 20 years chocolate will become a rarity more expensive than caviar.

 

Tequila

 

The Mexican cactus booze has been in trouble for the last couple of years.

The high demand and diseased crops have seriously threatened its supply in the past.

Now, we might actually be looking at a possible eradication of tequila as a worldwide commodity.

Substitution of gasoline with biofuels made from corn-based ethanol makes farmers in Mexico to abandon their old crops in favor of corn to ship off to the U.S.

This means destroying crops of agave cactus from which tequila is made by setting them on fire, because that’s how they roll in Mexico.

 

Phosphorus

 

You might not even know what phosphorus is but the life of all of us depends on it.

Phosphorus is used to make fertilizer, and without it, there is virtually no way to produce enough food for the world’s population.

China is already hoarding all the phosphorus it has, which hasn’t exactly done anything to calm the global markets.

The demand might continue to rise 2.3 percent a year, seeing as the majority of nations aren’t too keen on starving to death in the future.

The remaining phosphorus is located in Russia and Africa whose reserves might one day basically give them the keys to the planet.

 

Water

 

Even that fight for water is the plot of one shitty Bond movie, in the end, it’s true.

Do you know that the women of South Africa collectively walk the equivalent distance to the moon and back 16 times a day for water?

Thankfully we don’t have to walk that much here but we will be facing serious water shortages in the years ahead.

According to a recent report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council, more than one-third of all counties in the lower 48 states will likely be facing very serious water shortages by the year 2030.

If the global elite were not so incredibly greedy and if we managed our planet better we would not have problems to this degree.

The solution will be that the global elite share some of their wealth.

So watch out global elite, remember what God says in the book of James about those who hoard wealth on this earth …

The truth about customer service

 

If today we make a survey about the most hated segment of the population, customer service representatives would share top list together with pedophiles and YouTube commenters.

The only idea of calling customer service is enough to send most people into rage.

Working at a customer centered corporation allows me to understand that some ideas people have about customer service are absolutely wrong.

 

Customer service agents do care

 

Another misconception is that customer service representatives don’t care about customers and are just assistants of the evil corporation that they work for helping them to take your money.

There’s a huge chance that the agent you talk to likes the company as much as you do.

Maybe he’s not even a customer of that company like you are.

So, chances are, after you do everything wrong with the device you purchased because you didn’t read the instructions or the service agreement and you necessarily have to call customer care, the agent will be on your side.

customer-service.0822.12

 

if you don’t like when a company raises the prices just imagine how the people who have to take the resulting deluge of angry phone calls feel about it.

Yes, you’re both on the same team.

And don’t even imagine if the call center is in India or the Philippines.

Those guys not only hate the company they work for, they hate the system and they especially hate America.

Next time you call customer service remember, if the agent does not immediately become your ally, you are a very bad person.

 

The supervisor

 

Another classic.

People think that if they really need the problem to be solved better talk to a supervisor.

Wrong.

Any customer service rep is capable to better and faster solve your problem than a supervisor.

Supervisors are never better at solving customer problems than agents, and that’s fine because that’s not their job.

Whatever you’re calling about, the customer service rep has probably dealt with the exact same problem on dozens of other phone calls.

Meanwhile, their supervisor sits in a cubicle and monitors how much hold time the agents have.

Even if they got that job by being the very best customer service rep in their time, their days of taking phone calls have long passed and procedures have changed.

By asking to talk to a supervisor you are ensuring being on the phone extra time on hold, then explaining the problem again and at the end your case will be handed to someone way less knowledgeable about how to fix it.

Of course the supervisor will find out how to fix it but not as quickly as the person you were talking before.

 

Customer is always right

 

Go work for two days at any customer service company and there is one thing that will become extremely obvious, customers are almost never right.

For some reason I can’t yet explain people don’t read.

And I’m not talking about the 25 pages manual of the device you purchase, I’m talking about the 2 sentences explanatory email customer service sent you or the one page contract you sign with the company.

If people had half a brain they would read this before they agree to anything.

But that doesn’t happen, people don’t have time to read so they just click everywhere and then when they get charged they call customer service.

And that is because someone makes them believe that the customer is always right.

No, is not.

Study reveals some clothes can kill you

Skinny jeans harm legs

 

Unfortunately for all of us with good taste, skinny jeans become mainstream among effeminate glam rockers, hipsters and fat dudes with tight clothing budgets.

Doctors warned that wearing tight pants like skinny jeans can compress the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve which runs down your thigh and is there to register physical sensations like touch and pain.

 

9faad13c51c666ca663cf4e28cc53fe5

 

Therefore, if you squeeze your legs into tight denim, the constant pressure on the nerve might cause it to go into overdrive and start registering pain like crazy before ultimately crashing and burning.

Wearing this kind of jeans cause neurological disorders, numbness, chest pain and fecal incontinence.

Luckily, in most cases the injuries are not permanent and can be reversed simply by taking the pants off.

 

Bras damage your immune system

 

Bras are really cute and elegant but they are as well very harmful.

A study from the Department of environmental health at Nara University asked 95 women to wear a girdle and brassiere for a couple of nights while the scientists tested their saliva, urine and rectal temperature.

The study showed decreased levels of melatonin in the participants’ saliva while they were wearing the foundation garments.

According to the scientists, the skin pressure caused by bras can suppress the production of melatonin which reduced the immune abilities of the body.

Wearing a bra lowers your melatonin levels and by messing up with your sleep makes you sick and interferes with your immune system.

 

Ties damage vision

 

Suit and tie look is absolutely awesome and just like everything else that seems awesome, it sucks.

Wearing tie leads to glaucoma.

Glaucoma is one of the most common eye diseases in the world and causes blindness unless it’s treated early.

Its primary cause is increased pressure in the eye, which in turn is caused by obstructed blood flow to and from the head by a tie.

Wearing tie obstructed the jugular vein and ultimately damages the retina.

 

Piercings reduce brain activity

 

Scientists have studied that piercings damage and degenerate brain cells.

Wearing a piercing lead to symptoms like eye misalignment and loss of rational thinking.

In a recent study held by the National University of Amsterdam, subjects with facial piercings who were complaining about dizziness, headaches and reduction of intellectual activities, felt much better after their jewelry was removed from the skin.

Minutes after putting it on again, however, some of the symptoms returned, fading yet again when the piercings were taken out.

Gangnam Style was a mind control study

 

When you think about the future probably imagine a few zombie outbreaks.

Well, according to Gangnam Style mind control study, that’s not the scary part.

The song and the video were created with a language worked much differently from our known languages.

They’re composed of short, simple syllables, which intellectual listeners would find primitive and completely unintelligible.

The melody interacts with the human brain in an almost programmatic fashion.

That was the first step towards train us all, Gangnam Style listeners, to follow specific orders.

Is like a modern chant to instruct the populace to bring in the harvest, or make leather goods, or whatever it needs to be done.

This type of viral video posed an incredible risk and left us all vulnerable to linguistic viruses capable of reprogramming our brains.

This vulnerability still persists after the video popularity disappears.

Every time we listen to that series of short syllables we immediately start to ride imaginary horses.

You are probably thinking that is not the music but the dance that is addictive.

Well, it turns out that this programming effect could be embedded in visual images also.

Let’s check it.

 

)

 

Are you with me now?

Psy is a linguistic hacker.

His masterpiece Gangnam Style is the music equivalent of plague.

It has reprogrammed our brains at a deep subconscious level to make us ride imaginary horses.

And the most remarkable thing about this is that this guy hasn’t used this incredible power for something sinister.

He’s a white glove hacker, a joker.

Tips to live longer

 

Thanks to Oprah and other nice people on TV we’re all very aware of what it takes to live a healthy life.

We need to take vitamins, make exercise and drink water.

What I’m writing about is not random advices, is science.

There are several habits that will help us live longer.

 

Being poor

 

It doesn’t seem possible that being poor would make you live longer.

After all, while life is more important than money, you need money to buy the things that keep you alive.

 

Alcohol_Saudi

 

In turbulent economic times, you would expect the life expectancy of the population to lower as unemployment increases and nobody can afford to pay for doctors and vitamins.

Also, instead of eating expensive fresh fruit and vegetables, we subsist on the warm bowl of ramen noodles.

But statistics shows that economic hardship increases life expectancy.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the death rate in the U.S. declined and life expectancy rose during the whole financial collapse from 2007 to 2010.

The reason is that poor people can’t afford to go out so they don’t use cars as much as we do so they have fewer traffic fatalities.

For poor people, fun activities like drugs, cigarettes and liquor are luxuries so they rarely do them.

Plus, staying home means forming stronger bonds with family, which is universally known to be good for your health.

At the end of the day they have better habits than rich people.

They don’t have jobs which is good for stress levels so fewer poor people suffer heart attacks.

 

Being quiet

 

You know the person who never shows up in a bad mood and always remembers your birthday with cupcakes and hugs.

According to another study from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, people who approach life with an overly optimistic, cheerful attitude, die young.

The study found that optimistic extroverted people are way less cautious than grumps.

Happy people take more risks and are less aware of consequences.

They’re the ones who dance in the rain and get struck by lightning.

Do you hear that, free spirits?

You’re going to die young.

 

Alcohol

This is another one that seems impossible.

We all know of at least one famous person who drank himself to death.

If that would make you think that drinking alcohol is bad for your health you are wrong.

People who totally abstain from alcohol have a higher mortality rate than those who enjoy it.

A study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reveals that people who had one to three drinks a day are two times more likely to live longer than those who drink water or soda.

You wonder why?

The MIT also explains that the results are because nondrinkers have fewer social ties and less family support than the funny drinkers.

People who don’t drink tend to be more boring and have fewer friends which are factors that affect longevity.

And that my friends, is why I’m going to live forever.

Technology flaws

 

Every one of us is now carrying an insanely powerful device.

We handle a music playing, video phoning, mapping, government tracking device in the palms of our hands every single day.

Technology has dramatically increased the speed and efficiency with which we communicate, entertain and make connections.

Someone from 20 years ago would be intimidated and a bit lost in the social relations pace we live today.

And all this great features of course came with a number of annoyances that irritate us.

Some of them we’ve been living with for so long that we’ve forgotten how much of a problem they are and we see them as part of our life.

We need to stop that.

 

Batteries

 

If you have one of those remarkable modern phones I mentioned above you’re probably all too familiar with its tendency to turn into a pumpkin every evening when its battery goes completely dry.

I remember the ugly cellphones we used a few years ago that could last for days without charging.

Now we’ve been turned into a bunch of nomadic retarded carrying around phone chargers perpetually on our persons.

 

6a00d8358081ff69e2019b01b167e0970c-800wi

 

We prefer places depending on the amount of empty outlets or friendly strangers with a USB port.

The reason for this collapse in phone lifespans is because phones have improved dramatically.

Larger screens, faster processors and stronger radios reduce our poor batteries life.

The same problem afflicts just about every technology that relies on batteries, not only phones.

 

Storage

 

Even though storage media have gotten faster and denser they’re still far away from what we need.

In my ideal world files are always where they’re supposed to be.

What we do with files is crazy, almost primitive.

We keep emailing documents to ourselves, passing around drives or screaming obscenities at a spreadsheet with links to external files that don’t even exist.

I hope this is all going to be fixed by cloud technology but cloud technology is far from perfect and still has its own hurdles to overcome.

Cloud technology relies on our networks, the same networks that almost earned a place on this list I made.

As cool as cloud technology is, it will be awhile before consumers we can rely on it, which means we still have a few more years of drives and auto emails.

 

Printers

 

I find no world to describe how printers screw up my life.

With streaks, blotches, paper jams, beeps, grinding noises, error messages and ink levels constantly going down, printing has become one of the most challenging tasks you can put someone under.

Printers, unlike any other known technology, are as just as unreliable they were in 1995.

The software they include comes in a CD older as Earth itself so every time you buy a new printer you have to download new software.

And have you ever got one of those ‘Photo Quality Printer’?

‘Photo Quality’? Really?

Those printers are good for photo printing if you have to print one photo per year and you can spend the amount of ink worth enough to end world hunger.

I truly believe ink cartridges are made from unicorn blood.

If not I don’t find any reasonable explanation why are they so expensive.

And why printers ran out of the yellow ink first?

And why I cannot buy just the yellow ink?
