We Shouldn't Like Bitter Foods, But Yet...



Our tongues have several kinds of taste receptors, one of which detects bitterness in whatever it comes in contact with. In many species, this is an adaptive warning signal that something is not good to eat. That served our distant ancestors well, but modern humans are different. We actually seek out bitter foods like beer, coffee, chocolate, tea, and certain vegetables, and we even forget that these things are supposed to be bitter. How we got this way is combination of a number of factors, which MinuteFood explains.

Susu the Tiger in her New Home



Susu the Bengal tiger lived in a cage in Thailand her entire 15 years, where she was part of a circus act and posed for tourist photographs at the deplorable Phuket Zoo. Last year, Susu was rescued from the zoo by Wildlife Friends Foundation, along with ten other tigers and two bears after the zoo closed due to the COVID tourist slump. While Susu would never be able to survive in the wild, she now has a home at their Tiger Rescue Center, where she can roam 17 acres of wild grass and trees in her retirement, along with other rescued tigers.

What's the deal with a picture frame that has no picture in it? Friedman finds the answer, but then goes down the rabbit hole about presidents and the modern technology of the Oval Office. We won't find out anything really secret, but we find out some really neat tidbits about presidential history in this video.

Sneaky Zookeeper Save Cheetah Cub



On March 5, Monarto Safari Park in Australia welcomed a new baby cheetah. Seven-year-old Quella gave birth to a female cub. The problem was that cheetahs normally give birth to two cubs, and sometimes more. When a single cub is born, the mother is often unable to produce an adequate amount of milk to feed the cub. And that was the situation at the park. So this cub was abandoned by her mother, and had to be hand-fed every two hours.

But there was an ace in the hole. Quella's sister Qailee, also seven years old, was pregnant at the same time. Zookeepers hatched a plan to have Qailee foster the abandoned cub. This scheme had never been tried in an Australian zoo, but the US facility White Oak Conservation had succeeded at getting a cheetah to foster a cub, and they provided advice and encouragement. The cub waited a week for Qailee to give birth to two cubs, then the staff snuck the third cub into her den. And it worked! (via Zooborns)

Hugh Laurie is an irate parent confronting the school's headmaster, Stephen Fry, over what his son is being taught about sex.

Online Gym



This may sound silly, but with Zoom, the instructor can see whether students are participating in their homes. Princess went to a college that required every student to take a swimming class as one of their PE courses. Most take it as freshmen, but she was a transfer student and only attended the last two years. Swimming was put off in deference to her major, and she was set to graduate in August 2020. That became a problem when the school closed in March for the pandemic. It's super hard to take swimming online. She ultimately clepped out of it due to the fact that she knew how to swim, and had plenty of extracurricular physical activities like 5K runs and a dance club. (via Bad Newspaper)

The Coolest Flag on Earth



Antarctica is a continent that has no countries. Many countries have settlements there, but the residents are rarely permanent at the science stations. But so many countries have planted a flag on Antarctica without taking ownership, and they all fly flags to show where they are from. So the people of Antarctica love flags, and have pretty much always wanted to have a flag for Antarctica itself. Believe it or not, the first flag specifically designed for Antarctica came about because of a video game! CGP Grey tells us how Antarctica got a flag in 1929, 1997, and in 2018. The 2018 flag, called the "True South" flag, is expected to be permanent. (via Laughing Squid)

Baby Clapping Before Birth



What is the sound of an unborn baby clapping? There isn’t any, unless mom and the doctor sing along. Jen Cardinal underwent an ultrasound at 14 weeks in which they could clearly see the baby clapping his/her hands. The singing went on during a replay, and they toggled the ultrasound to make the song work while Dad took a cellphone video. So it’s a remix, but certainly a neat one. Jen says there were three claps in all during the procedure. (via Viral Viral Videos

Correction and Apology

Giant Robotic Parking Garage



Any time we see American cities from above, we are astonished at how much real estate is set aside for cars, both in streets and in parking lots. Sure, we have multi-story parking garages in places, but even they take up a lot of room because there has to be drivable roads to each floor and each space. Tokyo tackled that problem with mechanized garages that store your car in much less space, some of them underground, to boot! Those kinds of garages cost an awful lot to install, and pay off in nebulous benefits over a long period of time, which means they are probably out of the question for the US.

A Wild Deer Rescue



David Dunne https://viralhog.com/c/David_Dunne_1 of Tullamore, Ireland, and his son were in the woods back in January when they spotted a young male deer that had become trapped in a rope and metal fence. How long had he been there? Long enough to twist himself into a real knot, but not long enough to become too exhausted to struggle. Dunne knew that a panicked wild animal can be dangerous, but he took on the task of freeing the deer anyway. It was not easy, as the ropes were tightly wound around the antlers. And once they're gone, then what? Dunne could have been gored right there on the spot. He admits that he was kicked a few times, but it was all worth it when the deer ran away free. And his son caught it on video.

The Real Church Ladies of Burndale


The drama queens of high school and the real housewives crowd ain't got nothin' on the ladies of the church. That goes double when they've known each other since childhood. I know, because I am one of those church ladies. While the real drama is not quite as blatant as this skit from It's a Southern Thing, it's simmering beneath the surface, possibly over the course of many years. The good news is that for every drama queen, there are many others who stay silent and keep their egos in check for the greater purpose. Still, if someone were to launch a reality TV show about a church, this type of woman would bag the starring roles, because we love to watch epic dysfunctionality wherever it may arise. Bless their hearts.

A Trip to the Pet Shop



Kael Schoerlin has a  remote control car with a camera and  a transparent cargo bed and he's not afraid to use it. When he ran out of fish food, he sent the car to get it! The car doesn't have a speaker, but can communicate pretty well by opening its bed and tooting its horn. It also has a tiny "driver" wearing a cowboy hat that can nod when prompted. The employees at Petco were delighted to be visited by a toy buying food for a fish, and even more delighted when it responded to them, even in its own limited way.

The original video is at TikTok. See other adventures of the little blue car.

Mochi



Mochi is a munchkin cat bred in China and imported to the US. She developed ischemic dermatopathy which caused parts of her body to rot. Mochi lost her ears, her tail, and her right rear leg, and was sent to a shelter. Greg McDouglas, who describes himself as a dog person, fell in love with Mochi and he and his fiancee Natalia adopted her. It didn't matter to then that Mochi had missing parts and some lingering physical challenges. You can see more of Mochi at Instagram.

Where Alcoholic Drinks Got Their Names



When archaeologists discovered an 800-year-old winery in Georgia (the country, not the state), linguists weren't the least bit surprised. They had already traced the modern word "wine" back to the region and the era by reverse-engineering it, since it occurs in various forms in so many other languages Linguists are a clever bunch. Some of our terms for alcoholic beverages are indeed ancient, while the origins of others are just a matter of deciphering the historical record. PBS's Otherwords gives us a quick lesson in how alcoholic drinks got their names. I'll drink to that! (via Laughing Squid)

Agnodice, the Ancient Greek Doctor

 


Agnodice was a literary figure who may or may not have been based on a real person. She had to cross dress to get an education and to practice, but also filled a need for women patients who didn't want to expose themselves to strange men. The story of her trial seems so typical: women like this doctor, so let's try him for seduction. Oh, the doctor is a woman? Well, she must be innocent of seduction, but let's find another charge against her, like cross dressing.

Gaius Julius Hyginus most likely wrote the story as a springboard for a discussion of the propriety of a woman doctor vs. the need for women doctors, a valid debate at the time. That discussion devolved into whether Agnodice should be classified as a doctor or a midwife, which was silly anyway because there were no standards or licensing of either in ancient Greece, just a hierarchy of "importance" based on gender.

One sure way to get people talking about a house listing is to make a music video about it. Realtor Claire Cossey did just that for a home in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, UK.

Cossey, a former nightclub singer, has a pretty good voice, but the odd lyrics and the entire concept of a musical real estate ad made the video go viral.

As for the house itself, it has five bedrooms and more than 2700 interior square feet. But the ceiling and doorways could be a problem for anyone six feet tall. Is it worth £700,000? (via Metafilter)

Weird Innovations in Pizza



Pizza has been around for hundreds of years. First conceived in Naples, Italy, it was improved with tomato sauce and became an American staple food. The competition between pizza parlors and other providers has reached a fever pitch, leading to competition over the "next big thing" in pizza, whether it's a better recipe, faster delivery, reduced labor costs, or the most outrageous advertising gimmick. Weird History Food abandons trying to tell the complete history of pizza in order to bring us the most innovative and bizarre recent pizza schemes, all in the name of making us crave a hot and tasty slice of pizza. They weren't all successful, or even edible, but they do show some thinking outside the pizza box.

Teen Drivers in Their Natural Habitat



You say you never text while driving. You should still worry, because these teenagers are out there on the same roads you drive. While it happens to all age groups, teenagers are most likely to believe they are more competent than they really are. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety issued a report on teen drivers who crash due to distracted driving. This video is a sampling of some of those crashes, which are mostly due to cell phone use, and the horrible habit of texting while driving. The very first thing any new driver should learn is the importance of constant observation. Traffic is like a complicated mass dance, with most of the dancers at less-than-professional level. So you have to not only see where you are going, but where everyone else on the road is, front, back, and sides, plus where they are going and how fast. The ability to map that dance takes constant observation and a lot of practice.

The video analysis detailed in the report found that distracted driving contributes to four times as many accidents as indicated through police reports. And you can see that many of these accidents will never involve a police report, as there is often no other car involved. Of course, what intrigued me was how they got so much video of crashes that weren’t staged. The explanation is in the report:
Lytx, a company that has been collecting data using in-vehicle event recorders (IVERs) for over a decade, provided the crash data. Their DriveCam system collects video, audio and accelerometer data when a driver triggers the device by hard braking, fast cornering, or an impact that exceeds a certain g-force. Each video is 12-seconds long, and provides information on the 8 seconds before and 4 seconds after the trigger. The system has a wide range of applications—families use them to help young drivers as they begin to drive independently, while over 500 commercial and government fleets employ them for fleet management.

Crashes examined in this study involved drivers aged 16-19 who were participating in a teen driving program that involved the use of a DriveCam system. Ltyx made 6,842 videos of crashes that occurred between August 2007 and July 2013 available for review. In order to reduce this number and to eliminate minor curb strikes from the analysis, those crashes in which the vehicle sustained forces less than 1g were excluded. Crashes in which the DriveCam equipped vehicle was struck from behind were excluded. Additional videos were excluded for other reasons (e.g., animal strikes, video problems, or the driver not being a teen). A total of 1,691 moderate-to-severe crashes met the inclusion criteria and were analyzed for the current study.
Such a system seems like it might be a good idea for probationary drivers, maybe for a year or until they prove their competence. (via Viral Viral Videos)

Universal Movie Monsters



The recognizable looks of many classic horror characters came from Universal Studios. The movie studio began cranking out monster movies in 1931 with Dracula, which was a huge hit. Hoping to catch lightening in a bottle twice, Frankenstein followed. Universal had found its winning formula. Monster movies were inexpensive to film and the returns were phenomenal. They followed those successes with The Mummy, The Invisible Man, and The Wolf Man. In the 1940s, Universal institutes the concept of the sequel and the crossover, further solidifying their monsters in the public's perception. Science fiction was melded into the genre in the 1950s. In this video, we get the chronological history of Universal Studios' monster movies and how they captured the world.

What could possibly go wrong? The three-man Arctic balloon expedition set off from Svalbard in July of that year, determined to bring glory to Sweden by reaching the North Pole. They were not seen again until 1933.
