Same with snakes. They can see the entire light spectrum - including X rays, gamma rays and ultraviolet rays.

I wonder what the world looks like to them.

Speaking on the matter of magnetic fields, apparently cows can see it too.

Re: MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE

There's still a fair bit of disagreement about the issue of whether or not cows and other grazing animals can sense magnetic fields. It's interesting to think about though.

It really depends on the snake. Some, like pythons, have infrared detectors in pits below their eyes, but there are other snakes that can only barely distinguish light from darkness. It's interesting though how in the snakes with pits, the infrared sensors are essentially a "second set" of eyes, so they can build up two different images of the world.

Question

Mystery of the Universe that still remains a mystery (to me, at least), is about why people still breakup in relationships even when there's so many sacrifices been done to keep the relationship stay?

Yeah, I know you'd say "ask that in the relationship thread" but eh nope, I ask here because it is a mystery of the universe, definitely, the universe relies on the answer in order to save humanity and everything that depends on the human race to exist/co-exist..

Me viking mateys have shared me tales of how they gave the countries' false names back in the viking days or w/e to give themselves an advantage over attackers. Then the names stayed that way. For example who would want to raid a place called Iceland? No one 'cause it would be a cold pain in the ass or so they thought. And who would want to raid Greenland? Everybody. However they would only find ice and be like, ❤❤❤❤ we shouldn't have come here

Re: MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE

How greasy were people's hair back in the medieval times, since they only took a bath at most once a year, and not even with soap? Why in portraits of people back then does their hair look not greasy, even though it had to be?

Also on that note, were they immune to the foulness of each other's company? Like, could they not smell each other's breath and BO and ❤❤❤❤?

Because they don't want to... date... anymore?

Wat.




Why is it that some animals can live longer than other species? Sounds dumb, but like... the Galapagos Tortoise can live up to 150 years or more and it's smaller than us. Or how about the oldest living tree at the age of 9,550 years old on a Sweden mountain? It's just interesting.

Oh, man...if only that tree could talk! It would have so many interesting stories to tell--unless of course it is an isolated tree and spent the entirety of its 9,550 year old life alone and sequestered away.

Soap and shampoo wash away our natural oils, causing our body to overproduce them. We get a lot greasier faster today than before.

I can second this. I never used shampoo all throughout most of elementary, middle school, and high school. Never once. I don't recall greasy hair ever being an issue. My mom bought me a bottle of it for college three years ago and I've used it regularly since. I still have that same bottle and there's plenty of shampoo left in it. But I do notice lately as my hair gets longer and longer that I need it more and more. My hair's been longer than this and I've never used shampoo until college.
