What is Zombie Fungi?Top Story - May 2017
Have you ever had the thought that some humans are nothing more than a puppet on a string? I'm here to validate those thoughts.The cryptococcus fungus species can infect an organism and easily take over its brain and cause it to do things it normally wouldn't - ultimately leading to its demise. The fungus' goal is to grow and spread its spores. And this fungus LOVES your bran sugar, particularly inositol which is found in abundance in the spinal cord as well as the human brain.
Space As You Know It Is A Lie
The Tenth Dimension is based on the idea that countless tiny "Superstrings" are vibrating in a tenth dimension. In order to begin to understand this theory, we have to first comprehensively question our notion of infinity, the plausible and implausible, and consciousness itself.
What is Heterochromia?
Perhaps you've seen someone with different color eyes, or skin with different color pigmentation; this is most likely a condition called Heterochromia. The term derives from the Ancient Greek words "heteros" which translates to different and "chromas" which translates to color. Heterochromia is simply a surplus or lack of melanin in one or more areas of the body. It isn't restricted to simply your eyeballs; it can occur in your hair, skin, nails and even your teeth.
Signals From Aliens?
For years, scientists have studied the possibility of extraterrestrial life with no success, but has proof just fallen into our laps? Newly published research suggests we just may not be alone out here on our little rock. Mysterious phenomena called fast radio bursts could very well be evidence of advanced alien technology. We're talking PLANET- SIZED transmitters powering some sort of interstellar probes in galaxies far, far, away.
Your Brain On Parasites
Have you ever wondered why some people have absolutely no fear? Or why some people come across as almost mechanically over-aggressive? It’s a very real possibility that their brain function and reasoning could be controlled by parasites. I’m not talking Invasion Of The BodySnatchers, but definitely alluding to something equally as frightening. Parasites have been discovered living on and feeding off of almost all organisms and animals on this planet since the beginning of time. Keep in mind, in all this time, we’ve only cracked the tip of the iceberg to understanding their capabilities.
Did I Kill Playboy?
This is a statement that still blows my mind, but I am the only person on the planet that can say it honestly: I was on the cover of Playboy's first non-nude issue. After 63 years of showing every possible part of the female anatomy (and some of the male), the iconic bunny brand shocked the world by deciding to go conservative. And somehow they chose me to represent that shift.
