^ I don't get any of those side effects either, but I guess everyone's body is different.

There is a non hormonal IUD that you can get, but I've known a few people who found that the side effect of that one was becoming pregnant

^^ Damn. Sheep go through a lot! Actually I'm outraged by that!

That malaria mosquitoes are attracted to a specific type of cheese because it smells very similar to human feet, so traps are set with the cheese to try and reduce the number of mosquitoes.

They’ve discovered recently that our brains are sometimes still conscious after death, or that we know we’re dead after death, or something like that, because of a burst of brain energy when you die or... something like that oh and you gain one of the most heightened states of consciousness from LSD

That would be so fun! Because for half the fall you'd be falling down, and for the other half you'd be flying up! It would feel so weird and awesome, haha!

Possibly Mario's tried it, sorta
