How are pictures, music albums, and other media “leaked”?

At the studio: As soon as a record is finished, anyone from the producer to the engineer to the band members can spoil the fun.

At the label: Labels send albums to companies like Sonic Arts to add a digital encryption code that can identify uploading evildoers.. but not necessarily stop them.

By the press: Considered to be the most common source of album leakage, watermarks or not. Oops!

At the plant: While in the process of being manufactures, a CD is ostensibly secured under lock and key,  but sometimes copies fall off the back of trucks.

At the warehouse: Once CDs await shipping to retailers, it’s virtually guaranteed that a copy will find its way online.

At retail: And, of course, once an album is available for sale online or in stores, all bets are off.

Why do people die so fast after they’ve been shot or stabbed?

In real life death doesn’t come that quickly: getting stabbed or shot will make you bleed and destroy organs if those are hit too. The time it takes you to die depends on the rate you’re losing blood at and your organ function, where losing blood is usually the quickest. The only exception to this is the brain: when you get shot in the head with a decent bullet, you’ll die pretty much instantly. If you get stabbed in any other part you’ll bleed to death over the course of several hours unless an artery or your heart was hit: it might be seconds to minutes then.

Why is it that after sex or masturbation, I need to take a huge piss? And is this normal?

Mild doses of adrenaline are processed and broken down by your kidneys. Your body is just getting rid of its junk byproducts.

Why does your voice sound different when you clench your nose with your fingers?

The acoustics of your throat and nose are very important for the production of sound. Like with a violin, the strings and the sound box are both important to the sound. If you were to close all holes in the soundbox of the violin, it would sound drastically different. Your nose holes are the openings in the soundbox and your vocal cords are the strings of the violin.

Why isn’t it possible to time travel?

Actually, it is possible to travel into the future. Of course, we’re all moving into the future at the “regular” speed. But if you want to move into the future at a rate faster than everyone else, you simply need to move (physically) very, very quickly. Because of the time-dilating effects of Relativity, the faster you move, the slower time will flow for you. Moving sufficiently quickly would allow you to travel hundreds or even thousands of years in the future (while you remain young).

However, taking this concept of time dilation to its logical conclusion, if you were to travel at the speed of light, time would stop. And, if you were to travel faster than light, you would travel backwards through time. That’s not possible though because (again, due to the effects of Relativity) as you approached the speed of light, your mass would approach infinity which would require an infinite force. An infinite force cannot exist. So, as far as we can tell, you’re stuck moving forwards through time.

Why do apps require full permissions like making phone calls or reading sms, etc?

Many of them collect metadata to target ads. Others require a small portion of the program to function. A dangerous few snoop in on your calls and messages. Quite a few are ones that send premium phone calls/messages to steal your money. There’s a great variety of reasons.

Some followers suggested this to me.

The island known as the “island of madness”, “hell” and “the most haunted place on Earth” is being sold!

Here’s a quick, history behind it:

The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they died.

Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves.

In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental.

Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts.

It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.

The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over. The italian government thinks it would make a great hotel destination!

Every intelligent individual wants to know what makes him tick, and yet is at once fascinated and frustrated by the fact that oneself is the most difficult of all things to know.
― Alan Wilson Watts (via psych-quotes)
Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.
― Tom Robbins (via psych-quotes)

It’s hilarious that we live in a society that will shame you for how much sex you have and for the junk food you eat. Like, wow, how dare you eat delicious foods and have orgasms, you’re a monster. Enjoy your miserable life filled with pleasures.
