10. LOUIS KESEBERG
‘What did Louis Keseberg do?’
A group wanted to relocate from Illinois to California so they embarked upon a journey. The group was called Donner Party. The trip took around four to six months. They were slowed because they had to follow a different route all of a sudden called Hastings Cutoff. The group was told that it was a shortcut, in fact it was not. People kept a journal, and Louis Keseberg was always mentioned with a negative connotation. Winter came, the group set up camp but soon the snow was eight feet and the food was gone; dead crew members were eaten. The only one to be rescued alive was Louis Keseberg. His ten children died in different ways. Nobody knows his actual story.
9. JUICE AND DRUGS
‘Why should you avoid grapefruit juice when taking certain drugs?’
Grapefruit juice can have a negative interaction with many drugs. The interaction is very obvious in various medical and recreational drugs. However, there is no harm in taking grapefruit juice with injected drugs. The juice has the ability to get the drug out of your system quickly, rendering it quite useless. That may irritate you and you might even overdo on certain drugs. Weird why that happens, but it is a true story.
8. UNCANNY VALLEY
‘When will humans be pushed into the Uncanny Valley?’
Uncanny Valley is basically a hypothesis which regards the field of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and robotics. There is a theory (over which many movies have been made) that if and when a robotic organism will have the same characteristics as humans, it will stir anger and revolt in them. A simpler way to explain would be that if you own a robot that looks like you and has the same thought patterns , you will be annoyed to look at it. So given the advance, I don’t think anytime soon, but it will be terrible nonetheless.
7. SUPER DOLLAR
‘Who is behind the Super Dollar?’
Ladies and gentlemen we have a super dollar or a super bill in circulation around the world. This is a counterfeit $100 bill. Different countries such as China, Britain and United States have investigated the issue at hand and it has been found that certain crime syndicates and federal government might be behind this. The general belief is that the counterfeit bill is being produced in North Korea and there have been suggestions regarding the involvement of American CIA.
‘Did miniature humans populate the Earth some 12,000 years ago?’
There was a remarkable discovery made in Liang Bua Cave, located on the Island of Flores in Indonesia. Australian-Indonesian archaeologists, in 2003, discovered some unusual human bones. Parts of the skeletons of nine different people were found. They are human in looks, but the size is comparatively very small and thus it is believed that they were miniature humans. Research over this discovery continues till date with no significant discoveries.
