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.

Ecology is very dangerous

 

This entire green trend we are facing seems not to be working as good as it supposed to.

We have to wonder if it’s all really worth it because some of the inventions we’re trying end up being totally unsafe.

 

Energy windows

 

Some people tried to be friendly to the environment and save on energy bills by installing e-windows meant to reflect the sun’s heat and keep the inside of your house cool.

They didn’t realize that in some cases they’ve turned the house into a giant death ray that melts the surroundings.

The e-windows have kind of a concave shape so they not only reflect the light out of your living room but focus it on whatever they’re facing, like a magnifying glass frying an ant.

And if your windows are aimed toward a neighbor’s house that happens to have vinyl siding, which most houses do, it can get more than hot enough to make it look like they sided their house with gummy bears.

As the number of melted houses continues to rise, siding manufacturers are starting to drop reflected sunlight damage from their warranty coverage, leaving homeowners to either foot the perpetual bills or living inside a Jackson Pollock art piece.

 

Waterless Urinals

 

Unlike traditional urinals, which use one to five gallons of water per flush, new waterless urinals use no water save for the occasional cleaning.

These urinals are getting installed in modern buildings around the world.

Imagine what pee looks like, imagine how it smells, now imagine it like, everywhere.

Soon we will be living and working inside a scene from The Shining, only instead of blood covered by pee.

 Solar panels

 

Solar panels are being used all around the world to turn sunlight into electricity without considering that the massive glare is literally blinding plane pilots.

Of course, airplanes being airplanes, they could always fly around the vast swath of nothingness like a Desert but that still doesn’t solve the whole area nearby the airports.

 

Natural fertilizers

 

Scientists affirm that if we process all the US waste we could eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers.

The raw materials in compost piles attract bacteria that turn it into plant food but since we can’t see them, we forget that they are alive, and any living, moving thing creates heat.

As more and more bacteria crowd together reproducing, they raise the core temperature of the pile.

Between 2009 and 2013 there were 6900 fires started by spontaneous combustion ignited by organic material.

That’s 6900 fires caused by people not wanting to mess with the icky stuff in the backyard.

While compost piles may be helping to make the world a cleaner place you’re now being exposed to bacteria empires who only desire is to see you burn.
