    One of the first steps for preparing to have lucid dreams is to start keeping a dream journal. Any time that you remember a dream, write it down in your journal. Even if it's just a fragment of a dream or a lingering feeling, write it down. The journal will help you notice what your dreams are like. You will probably find that certain things reoccur in your dreams on a regular basis. These things are called "dreamsigns" and with practice you can learn to recognize dreamsigns while in a dream and then become lucid. Most people remember very few dreams. In fact, it's quite possible that you…

  • Memory : Card Trick: Deck Memorization

    29 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    We have already learned how the phonetic mnemonic system can be used to remember playing cards. Once you learn this, here is an interesting trick that you can perform for your friends and family. Deck Memorization Have your friend shuffle the deck. Now, go through the cards and use the link system to link each card to its neighbor. For example, if the ten of diamonds (keyword=dice) is adjacent to the two of hearts (keyword=hen), you could form a visual association of a hen laying some dice instead of eggs. With practice you should be able to go through the entire deck in a few minutes. Now…

  • How to Massage a Komodo Dragon

    Matt Soniak
    30 Jul 2015 | 8:00 pm
    Komodo dragons are fierce predators, and not animals you’d want to get up close and personal with (if you need convincing, see the National Zoo’s terse description of their hunting technique: “The dragon’s basic strategy is simple: try to smash the quarry to the ground and tear it to pieces”). Castor, a dragon living at the Denver Zoo, didn’t exactly live up to his species' ferocious reputation, though. In 2009, keepers cleaning Castor’s enclosure noticed that there were hardly any tail tracks in the dirt, indicating that he wasn’t walking around much. They also saw him…

    Every kitchen needs to be adequately decorated with various appliances that promise to do all the work for you and of course a few nifty utensils. It is true that nothing comes for free, which is why you will end up spending a lot of money, if you take your job as a chef seriously. The truth is that all those advertising campaigns keep on telling you about pieces of equipment that will do your work for you. Even though these are great additions to any kitchen, they do not represent those essential tools any chef should own. So, to unravel the mystery, here are the three tools you should…

    Don't Believe That!

  • Henry Ford Invented the Automobile

    admin
    30 Jul 2015 | 12:15 pm
    Henry Ford invented the automobile. Don’t believe that! Henry Ford’s name is synonymous with the automobile, certainly in the United States, and he is usually credited with its invention, and is often credited for developing the internal combustion engine and assembly line, as well. But, all of these things were around long before Ford. Early versions of the “assembly line” have existed for hundreds of years. For example, in the early 12th century, Italian military ships were assembled in Venetian canals, with different stages of construction being performed as the ship passed each…
  • ‘White Chocolate’ is Chocolate

    ‘White chocolate’ is chocolate. Don’t believe that! There are several varieties of chocolate: milk, dark, semi-sweet, etc. But white chocolate is not on that list because it is missing one key ingredient: chocolate. Specifically, white chocolate (which is actually more of a yellow color if prepared properly) does not contain chocolate liquor or cocoa solids. Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, which are the seeds of the cacao tree. The beans are fermented for several days, then dried, roasted and cracked open to remove their shells. The remaining “cocoa nibs” are ground into a paste…
  • Walt Disney Created Mickey Mouse

    17 Jul 2015 | 12:04 pm
    Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse. Don’t believe that! In the late 1920s, Walt Disney lost the rights a character named Oswald the Rabbit (who starred in a series of short films distributed by Universal Studios) and was in desperate need of a replacement. The concept of a cartoon mouse was produced in a brainstorming session with his brother Roy and animator Ub Iwerks. “Mortimer Mouse” (later renamed Mickey at the suggestion of Walt’s wife) was, however, designed and drawn by Iwerks. Walt was famously reluctant to give proper credit to his artists and animators. As Mickey grew in…
  • Tarantulas are Poisonous

    8 Jul 2015 | 1:06 pm
    Tarantulas are poisonous. Don’t believe that! A good percentage of people are afraid of spiders, and none is more intimidating than the large, fur-covered tarantula. Hollywood certainly recognizes this – the tarantula has played the bad guy in countless films. There are approximately 900 different species classified as tarantulas. Sizes range from three inches all the way up to the 12-inch goliath birdeater from South America (remind me never to go to South America). Tarantulas are among the most docile and easily-handled of all spiders, and are popular as pets. In those rare instances…
  • Skydivers Shoot Upward When Their Parachute Opens

    admin
    1 Jul 2015 | 12:10 pm
    Skydivers shoot upward when their parachute opens. Don’t believe that! The closest many of us will get to jumping out of an airplane is watching it on TV or in a movie. The most familiar part of such scenes is the moment that the skydiver pulls a cord and is immediately yanked sharply upward as his chute opens. A real skydiver will tell you that this doesn’t happen and is actually impossible. The jumper is falling toward the Earth and the parachute will slow his descent, but he is still falling. The reason he appears to ascend is an optical illusion. Think about where the camera is…
