Tidbits

I am super busy processing photos from last weekend’s photo sessions, and between that and real life work I can’t seem to find the time to write a proper post. So here are two tidbits of information I found out just recently.

1. We don’t have any pain sensors in any part of the brain. Bluntly put you can stick a knife in someone’s brain and they wouldn’t feel a thing. They would possibly lose sight, their memory or think they smell popcorn but they would not feel a thing.

2. If you’re like me and the smell of raw onion seems to bring out all the water in your body through your eyes, then this is going to make your day – or at least those days you’re actually chopping onions. If you keep a piece of bread in your mouth, like so, your eyes won’t tear up. I’ve tried it and it really works!

    Onion tears dodgeable – check / (and thanks for the tips, will let you know!)
    Good luck with the photos, your ‘subjects’ are very cute in their film :)

  • 1. Of course they might also die, but you know, they wouldn’t feel it. :)
    2. I’ve never heard this before, but I’m interested in the science of it.

  • I’m right there with you. I’ve been so busy it’s all I can do to keep up with anything remotely having to do with the blog. Just wrote a post before hitting the road today. I’m currently in the car with a friend driving and I’m catching up on the blogosphere.
