Top 5 Most Mind-Blowing Facts Ever Published.

on Wed Apr 09, 2014 9:22 pm


1.) When You Fall in Love You Lose Two Close Friends

Researchers at Oxford University conducted a survey asking people to describe their close circle of friends, and compared the difference between people who were in romantic relationships.

On average, when asked to list the members of their core group of friends, people name 5 friends. People in romantic relationships could only name an average of 4 close relationships.

That's an average net loss of 1 person in your friend circle as a result of adding a new person into your life.

Typically this means that you lose 2 friends from your group of 5 and then add your new lover to get to a total of 4.

This core group consists of people that you see at least once a week. You may of course have many more peripheral friends.

Adding a new lover into the mix will force you to budget your time differently, forcing you to lose touch with an average of 2 people in your core group.






2.) Each of the main characters in Spongebob Squarepants was inspired by one of the seven deadly sins.


This surprising revelation was made in the audio commentary included with the episode "Plankton!" On the DVD boxset of the show's first season. The disc does not establish which characters match up with each sin, but as an avid Spongebob fan, I believe the comparisons are fairly straightforward:

1. Greed (Mr. Krabs) - this is by far the most obvious comparison that can be made. The avarice of Eugene Krabs is made painfully clear throughout the series. He is constantly thinking of ways to turn a profit, even if it involves taking advantage of his friends or putting them in harmful situations! In one episode, he sings a song called "If I Could Talk to Money"...and there's even a wiki page devoted to compiling all of his greedy plans!

2. Envy (Plankton) - another no brainer. With all of Krabs' wealth and good fortune, there has been an equal amount of hard luck and failure for his archrival, Sheldon Plankton. Plankton owns a struggling restaurant called "The Chum Bucket" and is consumed with the desire to achieve the success of his adversary. His life's goal is to steal the Krabby Patty formula from his Krabs and drive his primary competitor out of business.

3. Sloth (Patrick) - the guy lives under a rock for crying out loud! If that isn't enough to convince you, in the episode "Big Pink Loser" Patrick is given an award for 'doing absolutely nothing longer than anyone else'. He then proceeds go back under his rock to protect his title.

4. Pride (Sandy) - the fact that Sandy Cheeks is from Texas alone should almost suffice for this one. She is a squirrel that is very proud of her heritage, so much so that in one episode she nearly moved back home! Sandy also takes a great deal of satisfaction in being the only land critter living down in Bikini Bottom among all the fishy folk. Though generally a good-natured individual, Sandy is quick to spout off about the greatness of the Lone Star state or to show off her athleticism in a karate match or a weightlifting contest.

5. Wrath (Squidward) - Squidward Tentacles has no qualms about expressing his negative outlook on life, whether it be by describing how much he hates his job at the Krusty Krab or through outward disdain for his two obnoxious neighbors. He is portrayed as a general failure who refuses to acknowledge his own personal flaws. This constant self-denial manifests itself in a sarcastic sense of humor and resentment toward the society that doesn't 'appreciate' his creativity and clarinet...erm..."skills".

6. Gluttony (Gary) - now this one's a bit trickier. Those who have watched a great deal of the series will have noticed a number of jokes about Spongebob having to remember to feed his pet snail. To be honest, Gary doesn't do a whole lot besides eating and meowing, and the meowing is often due to the fact that he is hungry. Once when Spongebob hadn't fed his pet, Gary is shown eating parts of their couch! In another episode, Gary runs away from home because Spongebob forgot to feed him for a while. Another time when Spongebob had amnesia, Gary ate a year's supply of snail food and became morbidly obese! This proves beyond a doubt that when left to his own devices, Gary would rather do nothing but eat.

7. Lust (Spongebob) - our final analogy is probably the least apparent because we typically think of 'lust' in a sexual sense. However, the alternative definition for lust is simply "a passionate desire for something". In this sense of the word, it cannot be denied that our absorbent yellow friend is an extremely lustful creature. Spongebob has a lust for life that is incomparable to most other cartoon characters - he yearns for the affections of both friend and foe alike, is eager to please, and will often stop at nothing to complete a task.






3.) An Iowa artist built a complete model of Hogwarts out of matchsticks.

Spoiler:
Based on the movie version of the castle, artist Patrick "The Matchmaker" Acton spent nearly three years building his own model of the infamous School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The magnificent model was on display at the Matchstick Marvels Museum in Gladbrook, IA until 2006, when it was moved to Majorca, Spain to commemorate the opening of "The House of Katmandu."

Acton has built around 60 matchstick models since 1977, but Hogwarts is by far his largest, containing over 602,000 sticks held together with 15 gallons of wood glue! His other creations include the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek, the United States Capitol building, and the city Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings. Check out Acton's website for more of his beautiful matchstick creations.






4.) A man married a pillow.


Spoiler:

A Korean man named Lee Jin-gyu fell in love with a life-sized Japanese body pillow called a "dakimakura". The pillow has the image of a cartoon character named Fate Testarossa on it, from an anime called Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.

The 28-year-old man takes his pillow with him everywhere and eventually got married to it. Read more about Lee:

Spoiler:
Lee Jin-gyu fell for his ‘dakimakura’ – a kind of large, huggable pillow from Japan, often with a picture of a popular anime character printed on the side.

In Lee’s case, his beloved pillow has an image of Fate Testarossa, from the ‘magical girl’ anime seriesMahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.Now the 28-year-old otaku (a Japanese term that roughly translates to somewhere between ‘obsessive’ and ‘nerd’) has wed the pillow in a special ceremony, after fitting it out with a wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest. Their nuptials were eagerly chronicled by the local media. ‘He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere,’ said one friend. ‘They go out to the park or the funfair where it will go on all the rides with him. Then when he goes out to eat he takes it with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal,’ they added.

The pillow marriage is not the first similarly-themed unusual marriage in recent times – it comes after a Japanese otaku married his virtual girlfriendNene Anegasaki, a character who only exists in the Nintendo DS game Love Plus, last November.

This is actually part of a broader cultural phenomenon. There is a growing subculture of men in Japan who engage in romantic relationships with pillows that have cartoons on them. People who have difficulty with romantic relationships with real (3-dimensional) people instead find themselves attracted to 2-dimensional anime characters. You can learn more about this phenomenon in this New York Times piece.






5.) After suffering a knife wound to the stomach while performing fellatio, a teenager became pregnant despite being born without a v@g1n@.


Doctors in Lesotho were puzzled when they discovered that a 15 year old patient going into labor did not have a V@g1N@. The girl suffered from a rare birth defect called Mullerian agenesis. They found out that she conceived her child when a jealous ex stabbed her after performing fellatio on her new boyfriend. Apparently, she got stabbed while on an empty stomach, so she did not have enough gastric acids to kill all the sperm, and the stab wounds opened up a path to her uterus, where she got impregnated. Sperm can last a long time, so be careful.
