Can Playing Techno Beats For Test Tube Babies Really Make Them Bigger? Science Says Yes!

(PCM) Researchers at the Altra-vita IVF clinic in Moscow were stunned to learn that playing a loud and pulsating techno beat for test tube babies appears to have a significant effect on making them grow larger and turn into embryos.

An experiment was conducted by the researchers where a 24-hour loop of techno music was played for eggs in test tubes and the results were astonishing. The eggs became more fertilized and the number of embryos that were usable increased by about a fifth.

The results of the experiment were revealed at the Fertility Conference that was held in Edinburgh where it was explained in layman’s terms that the so-called “techno eggs” were slightly more likely to grow into embryos and a lot more likely to develop to the point that they could be placed into the womb.

Techo music appeared to have a different effect on the test tube eggs than other musical styles that were played. Researchers tried everything from pop and classical to metal, however it was techno tracks that featured a steady pulsating beat that showed the most positive results.

It is thought that the reason behind the results is an effect of the pulsating rhythm mimicking the swirling movements that occur within the womb after a natural conception. It is almost like tricking the egg into thinking it is actually inside the womb therefore increasing the overall effectiveness of the IVF procedure.

Dead Grandmother Appears In Ceremony Photo

(PCM) A lot of creepy occurrences take place each and every day and many people often take the time to share these strange and unusual stories via sites such as Reddit and more. Such is the paranormal case of Grandma Lori who sadly died before seeing her grandson graduate to become a priest.

There are various theories floating around as to why ghosts appear to linger around our world and one of the most common is that they have some sort of unfinished business or situation. When people talk about being haunted by a ghost it is usually scary in nature, however in the case of Grandma Lori, her reason for sticking around is apparently to show pride in her family.

Lori

Grandma Lori was diagnosed with a terminal illness just before her grandson was able to complete his studies to join the priesthood. She told him she wanted to live long enough to see him become a priest, however sadly she passed away a mere two weeks prior to the ceremony.

The family took tons of photos at ceremony which was of course bittersweet due to Grandma Lori’s recent passing. When looking through the photographs after the ceremony the family was shocked to discover a figure that appears to be Grandma Lori proudly standing behind a bouquet of flowers in the church, watching on as her grandson completes the ceremony.

Worried About Your Dirty Mouth? New Study Shows Swearing Actually Proves Your Honesty

(PCM) A new study was recently published in the Social Psychological and Personality Science journal that appears to prove that the more someone uses swear words the more honest and transparent they are as a person. The researchers used three different experiments on participants to assist with determining a solid relationship between swearing and honesty.

The three experiments were conducted online and participants were asked to truthfully admit how often they use swear words, have their Facebook statuses analyzed, and then their entire state was looked at as a whole to determine the person’s integrity. What was very interesting was the way that the researchers were able to combine the Facebook status data with the particular state information to make a clear determination about which states swore more often and how it related to their overall ethics in general.

Guess which state curses up a storm, but is also the most honest?  Connecticut (at least according to the results of this particular study) Trust us, we would have never guessed that one either!  Overall the study shows that there is a huge correlation between cursing and a person’s level of honesty. This correlation not only stands on an individual level, but also of a sociological scale as well!

After checking out this study we were a bit curious about curse words in general and just how often people use them. It appears that the average person cusses quite a bit. About 0.7% of the words used in an average day by a person are curse words. That may not seem like a lot, but we use personal pronouns such as we, ourselves, and our just as frequently. Just give that some thought, it equals out to about 80 times per day or about three times per hour!

No need to bring out the soap … let the dirty words fly!

Remembering The Irreplaceable David Bowie Ten Things You Might Not Know

(PCM) It’s been a year since the world lost a great man in Mr. David Bowie. Mr. Bowie was a worldly enigmatic chap. He was an amazing musician, an innovator, and an actor just to name a few. We look back at ten things you may or may not know about the late singer.

  1. Rock guitarist Peter Frampton was Bowie’s friend at school – his dad was head of the art department. He’s gone on to play guitar with Bowie many times during his career.
  2. On Jun. 19, 2004, David Bowie was playing for a crowd of around 7,500 at the Norwegian Wood Festival in Oslo, Norway. Due to circumstances that remain mysterious, a lollipop flew from the crowd to the stage area, miraculously landing and lodging into the performer’s left eye. The singer stayed on stage after help from an assistant. He ended up playing an incredible 27 songs. He remained on the stage for over two hours and 20 minutes.
  3. He started playing the saxophone when he was 12 years old.
  4. He later changed his name to Bowie to avoid confusion with Monkee Davy Jones.
  5. He released his debut album, the self-titled David Bowie, in 1967 after playing in a host of pub and club bands.
  6. Bowie’s first hit in the UK – 1969’s Space Oddity – was used by the BBC in its coverage of the moon landing.
  7. David Bowie’s first US number one was his single Fame in 1975. It was co-written by John Lennon and features the former Beatle on backing vocals.
  8. In the 1986 Jim Henson movie Labyrinth, Bowie plays Jareth The Goblin King.
  9. Bing Crosby recorded his last-ever single with David Bowie. Their duet version of The Little Drummer Boy was recorded for Christmas 1977. It was a hit five years later.
  10. His hit Ziggy Stardust is about Vince Taylor, who wrote Brand New Cadillac – later covered by The Clash.

David Bowie will be sadly missed, but he left us enough material to fill a spaceship. Rest Easy STAR MAN.

Weirdo Squirts Women With His Semen At Walmart

(PCM) West Virginia native Timothy Blake has started off the year in a rather disgusting fashion, as he was recently arrested for following women around an Ohio Walmart and using a syringe to squirt them with his semen. Ugh! Nastiness!

Blake was arrested and charged by Ohio authorities back on December 30 with “pandering obscenity, sexual imposition and two counts of menace by stalking.” It also appears that Blake has a thing for stalking women at Walmart  as he was also caught during a incident in November of 2016 at the same location in Marietta, OH. He was following another woman who described him as being “creepy”. In that case, as well as this one, the woman felt something wet and sticky hit her lower back and foot. She went into the Walmart restroom to wash up and Blake standing outside of the restroom waiting for her to exit. The entire incident was captured via video surveillance cameras in the store.

Both times Blake was able to flee after the incident in his white pick-up truck, however after the second incident police recognized the pick-up truck and Blake was brought in for questioning. He at first told the police that the substance in the syringe was egg yolk, however it was later tested by police and Blake eventually admitted it was his semen. Blake went on to reveal to the police that he’d used syringes filled with spit, egg, and semen to spray women “on a dozen occasions.”

He would masturbate either in his pick-up truck or in the Walmart bathroom, fill the syringe with his semen and then squirt the contents at unsuspecting women. Just disgusting! Police feel that this may be Blake’s way of feeling like he has somehow had sexual relations with these women, but without a doubt it is the sign of a deeply disturbed individual.

It Is Raining Dead Birds In New Jersey

(PCM) It is probably not the sign of a very good omen when as many as 200 dead birds rain out of the sky, however that is exactly what occurred in the community of Stowe Township in Cumberland County, New Jersey.

Residents in the area are completely freaked out and local environmental specialists are scratching their heads after over 200 red-winged blackbirds fell dead from the sky near a small housing development off of Frank Davis Road. There has been no logical explanation for the incident, but it certainly can’t be good … that’s for sure! New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection

The incident was described by residents as terrifying as the birds literally just fell from the sky. This incident occurred right before Thanksgiving of 2016 and was the second time it has happened in just a few week time period which makes this all the more freaky.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has been investigating the incident, but thus far all the results have come up inconclusive, The agency found that the birds died as a result of broken necks and internal bleeding suffered during the fall from the sky, but as to exactly what made them fall in the first place is becoming quite a large mystery.

The agency has ruled out any type of pesticides or toxic compounds found in the wheat seeds nearby, so experts are completely puzzled as to what could have caused this terrifying incident to occur. It is a bit odd that the incident seems to be confined to one particular area and residents are still feeling a bit uneasy and continue to be on high alert.
