Selfies kill more people than sharks -“there is no sin except stupidity”

Selfie is a recent phenomenon and has been appointed as the word of 2013 by Oxford Dictionary. Google estimates that 24 billion selfies were uploaded to Google Photos in 2015. About 1 million selfies are clicked per day in 18 to 24 demographic. Pew Research Center showed that nearly 55 percent of millennials have posted a selfie on social media services.

Depending on how you are narcissistic and how selfies you took, you may not be aware of the most alarming piece of news related selfie-: kill Selfies. Literally. In fact, a Conde Nast Traveler Article selfie compared death to death by shark attack and concluded that death selfie won in 2015, which seems rather shocking until you look at the number of victims of shark attack and realize that this is not so high. (Sharks usually kill about six people each year.) Yet even a death as something preventable like selfie executed stupidly too.

Most selfie-related deaths occur when the selfie taker is in a risky but impressive position as standing in front of a moving train or a charging bull or posing with a grenade. In a recent tragedy, a Polish couple died before their children after he jumped a security barrier and tried to take a selfie on the edge of a cliff.

Now it is interesting to note that people are dying to do stupid things all the time, so really this is just another version of climbing Mount Everest or doing acrobatics atop a skyscraper 62 story, except that it is accessible to almost everyone with a smartphone. So as much as we would all like to believe that most humans are smart enough not to die in a crash selfie, you should never underestimate the power of ‘it will not happen to me. “

Too much masturbation! Concern about the dangers of masturbation was not the sole remit of the Victorians

In the old days when knights were bold, imagine you are a young man living in Britain in Victorian times, and you went to a doctor complaining that you were feeling stressed, tired, anxious, irritable lately, and after the doctor ask some embarrassing questions about your sexual habits and if you have been honest with your answers -it comes with a diagnosis of spermatorrhea.

Now you get more anxious to know what is espermatorrea? (If you know how to pronounce it), and what it does? The doctor looks into his eyes and said: Too masturbation!

The disease defined as “the excessive discharge of semen caused by illegal or excessive sexual activity, particularly masturbation” by the Journal of the History of Sexuality.

Who discovered? “In 1758, Swiss physician Samuel-Auguste Tissot reported this disease. He had published his theory about the devastating effects of self-stimulation. It claimed- masturbation and nocturnal emissions are more terrible than smallpox because he stole the body of sperm – carrying vital energy “.

By the Victorian era, everyone believed that nocturnal emissions, masturbation considered characteristic of the disease. They had to stop these nocturnal erections (wet dreams) and limit the people of masturbation. (Obviously those who had no self-control). They had to find a way, they built this medical equipment called – jugum penis (German) – also known as a “ring Impurities in.”

via GIPHY

It is an anti-masturbation device- There was a serrated metallic rings mounted on the base of the penis of a notch of the screw or a clip. Any erection cause pain that serrated teeth cram into the penis. These treatments were needed vicious-looking? Masturbation was considered a serious threat to the physical and mental health, leading to weakness, folly, and maybe even death.

Imagine in 2019 you went to a doctor and complain about feeling a little tired and it gives you a metal ring with sharp teeth and had to wear it every night – and it stings an erection to de- erect (Ouch! Ouch ouch). Fear not, they do not.

A couple of cups of coffee a day keep the doctor away

British scientists from more than 200 studies on coffee consumption and health, published in The BMJ, a British medical journal.

According to the researchers, people who drink three to four cups of coffee a day are more likely to see the health benefits that damage with premature death rate of cardiovascular disease and lower liver disease.

Drink more coffee is also associated with a decrease in many types of cancer, including prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, skin cancer, leukemia, liver cancer, according to the findings of researchers. Type 2 diabetes rates, gallstones and dementia associated with coffee consumption were also lower.

Drinking three to four cups of coffee is the most beneficial to health, except for pregnant women and people prone to fractures.

Given that this was an analysis of existing studies, it is impossible to take into account many other factors that have affected the health of subjects. More studies are needed to determine causation and not just correlation. In other words, it may be that people healthier also drink coffee, but the findings of the analysis suggest that there are more positive than negative effects.

Although the review has shown that coffee consumption had more benefits than harm, studies have not been adjusted for important confounders such as body mass index, smoking, age, alcohol consumption, income and education levels.

Twitter Reacts To Trump Vape Ban

After a series of vaping-related illnesses in the country, which have left hundreds of people in hospital and caused at least six deaths, the Trump administration has announced plans to ban most flavored vaping products. The administration cited an “epidemic” of e-cigarette use among teenagers, accusing nicotine-flavored products of attracting more children to smoking.

The government’s swift action on the issue of vaping after only six deaths stands in stark contrast to its reluctance to give in to measures such as the extension of gun control measures, while large-scale shootings have resulted in a number of deaths. died in August alone.

Twitter users quickly questioned the apparent hypocrisy of this move:

Will and Grace — Blown Away

Diminutive actor (4’11 “) Leslie Jordan received an Emmy Award for her role as Beverley Leslie on thorns at Will and Grace. She is rich and traveling in the same social circle as Karen and likes to openly drop one or two pegs.

Even though Beverley was married, other characters saw him as a closed gay man. And their presumption might be right, because in the last episode it was revealed that Karen had pushed Jack who was reluctant to adjust to Beverley. When the tiny Beverley is flown from the balcony by a gust of wind and falls to his death, Jack is the heir of his estate, which allows him and Karen to continue their bacchanalian friendship.

Interestingly enough, the authors originally intended for Beverley’s character Leslie to be the woman played by Joan Collins. But Ms. Collins leaves the project after reading a script involving a fight between Beverley and Karen, where Bev’s wig will be revoked.
