Twitter gets high on jokes following ESPN white powder scare


Posted May 4th, 2015 by GuestBlogger001 No Comments »

ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut had a scare on Monday morning after somebody discovered a mysterious white powder. Police and fire officials rushed to the scene and ran tests on the powder. Turns out it was just drywall.

As soon as the scare leaked to the public everyone rushed to Twitter and turned the news into one big joke.

3 packages with white powder sent to ESPN. Apparently the USPS wasn't aware that Michael Irvin is now at the NFL Network.

10 Horrible Things Pulling An All-Nighter Does To Your Brain


Posted May 4th, 2015 by GuestBlogger001 No Comments »

If HANGRY = hungry + angry, would that mean that SLANGRY = sleepy + angry? Asking for a friend.

You know the rules: Adults should get about seven or eight hours of sleep a night. EVERY NIGHT!

 

And teens need even more than that.

But sometimes that just… doesn’t happen. Maybe you’ve got a big exam to study for.

Or maybe you’re all about that party till the breaka-breaka dawn thing.

Or maybe you have a really bad read-the-internet-all-night-long issue.

Either way, pulling an all-nighter can do some funky and awful stuff to your brain. Like these 10 things:

1. You’ll have trouble remembering anything you tried to learn during the day (or night).

When you sleep, a part of your brain called the hippocampus replays what you’ve learned while you were awake, Dr. Charles Czeisler, chairman of the board of the National Sleep Foundation and chief of sleep medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, tells BuzzFeed Life. This helps you encode those things you’ve learned into your long-term memory. No sleep, no long-term memory of those lessons.

And this is why pulling an all-nighter to study for an exam the next day isn’t very smart. “The better strategy would be to read the material during the daytime, and then sleep on it, because then you will actually encode that material into your long-term memory,” Czeisler says.

2. You’ll stay stuck on any complicated problems you can’t figure out.

Let’s say you’re staying up really late working on a problem set that you just can’t crack. The smart thing would be to go to bed now and try again in the morning. During REM sleep, your brain integrates new memories with other memories you’ve previously learned, Czeisler says. This can often result in insight: recognizing patterns and solving problems without even consciously thinking about it. If you pull an all-nighter, you miss out on that sweet, sweet subconscious insight.

3. Your circadian rhythm will be thrown off, making you feel like absolute garbage.

Every cell in your body contains its own circadian clock, and your hypothalamus acts as a master clock that keeps them all running in sync, Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, tells BuzzFeed Life.

All day long, you are sending signals to your hypothalamus. Eating can be a signal, for instance. And light is another major signal, Morgenthaler says. When the hypothalamus receives these signals, it activates the release of hormones in your body that can make you feel hungry, sleepy, and more.

When you stay up all day and all night, though, your signaling gets completely out of wack — you’re seeing light when you shouldn’t be, and you’re eating at weird and unexpected times. That throws your cells’ circadian clocks out of sync, which makes you feel awful: “a vague sense of nausea, fatigue, lassitude, sleepiness,” Morgenthaler says.

4. Toxic metabolic refuse builds up in your brain.

Your brain burns a TON of energy throughout the day, which results in metabolic byproducts — refuse — left behind. (Think of soot as a byproduct of a car burning gasoline for fuel, Czeisler says; it’s the same idea). Every night, your brain works to repair and restore its neurons. But it can’t do that with all the refuse in the way, Czeisler says.

So every night when you sleep, your brain basically detoxes itself. The metabolites get flushed out through a lymphatic system that runs along the brain’s vasculature (called the “glymphatic system”). But when you don’t sleep, your brain doesn’t get to detox itself, the metabolites build up, and your brain cells don’t get repaired.

5. Your brain legit stops functioning as well as it normally does.

As you stay awake longer and longer, your brain becomes less and less efficient at burning energy, Czeisler says. That’s because your brain uses molecules called adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to help it burn fuel. The longer you stay awake, the more ATP you use, and the less there is left to help you metabolize energy. With less ATP available, you’re not as efficient as you could be.

You need to sleep to replenish ATP molecules. So when you don’t sleep… your brain is not being as efficient as it can be. Meaning it just won’t work as well in some big ways. For instance:

6. Your judgment will go out the window.

DreamWorks Pictures / Via landofderp.tumblr.com

When your brain becomes less efficient burning energy, that can impact your prefrontal cortex. That’s the part of the brain responsible for good judgment and making smart decisions. When your prefrontal cortex stops working well, your ability to make smart choices and not be a totally impulsive maniac gets compromised.

7. So will your ability to process sensory information.

Sony Pictures / Via hola105.tumblr.com

This can also impact your thalamus and the parietal cortex, both parts of your brain responsible for integrating sensory information, Czeisler says.

8. You’ll be moody as all hell.

 

“After just one night of lost sleep, people have moodiness problems,” Morgenthaler says. “They become crabby and not stable emotionally.”

9. You could suffer from a “sleep attack,” where your brain forces you to pass out in spite of your every intention not to — which can be deadly.

 

Throughout the day, as ATP molecules are used to burn energy, adenosine byproducts get left behind. As the adenosine levels build up, that sends a stronger and stronger signal to your brain that you need sleep. Once it hits critical mass, that can trigger a switch in your brain that forces you to fall asleep immediately and involuntarily. “It’s almost like fainting, but it’s an involuntary sleep attack,” Czeisler says.

During a boring lecture, this isn’t a big deal. But if you’re driving a car, it just takes a few seconds to veer off the road or into oncoming traffic, killing yourself or others. “These types of accidents are much more likely to have a higher fatality rate than other types of accidents,” Czeisler says. “If you’re drunk, you’re at least moving the steering wheel. But when you fall asleep, you don’t take any evasive maneuvers and you just sail right into whatever you’re about to hit.”

10. You will drive like a drunk person.

 

Even if you don’t fall asleep behind the wheel, you’re still a danger to yourself and others after pulling an all-nighter. “If you’ve been awake for 24 hours, your performance is as impaired as if you were legally drunk and had a 0.1 BAC,” Czeisler says.

And here’s a fun fact:

“Chronic sleep deprivation is more dangerous” in a number of ways than not sleeping for a night or two, Morgenthaler says. More on that another day.

correction

The longer you stay awake, the more you use up available ATP molecules for fuel. An earlier version of this article misstated that the molecules themselves get degraded into less complex sources of fuel.

These Lawsuits Will Make You Lose Faith In The Judicial System. Oh Boy…


Posted May 4th, 2015 by GuestBlogger001 No Comments »

Nowadays, you can sue almost anyone for almost anything. You don’t even have to be wronged to file a lawsuit… you could just be greedy. Dishonesty (and stupidity) doesn’t stop people as much as you’d hope it would. 

Here are some of the craziest lawsuits that ever made it through the judicial system. They’ll leave you shaking your head (and saving up money, just in case you ever get sued).

1.) Suing Because Your Name Was Misspelled

Tanisha Torres of Wyndanch, N.Y., sued Radio Shack for misspelling her town as “Crimedanch” on her cell phone bill. She didn’t even ask them to change it; she just sued. She claimed she suffered “outrage” and “embarrassment” at having to see that spelling on her private phone bill.

2.) Suing Because You Were Bullied

Dylan Theno was bullied for years by classmates because they believed he was gay… so he sued the school district. He was awarded $440,000 in a settlement.

3.) Suing Because You Were Bitten By A Dog

In October 1999, Jerry Williams of Little Rock Arkansas was awarded $14,500.00 and medical expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next door neighbor’s beagle. The beagle was on a chain in it’s owner’s fenced-in yard, as was Mr. Williams. The jury felt the dog may have been provoked by Mr. Williams who, at the time, was shooting it repeatedly with a pellet gun.

4.) Suing Because You Accidentally Killed Someone

Marcy Noriega had a suspect from a minor disturbance handcuffed in the back of her patrol car. When the suspect started to kick at the car’s windows, Officer Noriega decided to subdue him with her Taser. Incredibly, instead of pulling her stun gun from her belt, she pulled her service sidearm and shot the man in the chest, killing him instantly. The city, however, says the killing is not the officer’s fault; it argues that “any reasonable police officer” could “mistakenly draw and fire a handgun instead of the Taser device” and has filed suit against Taser, arguing the company should pay for any award from the wrongful death lawsuit the man’s family has filed.

5.) Suing Because Of A Bottle Rocket

A West Virginia college student sued his fraternity, alleging that he fell off a deck when a drunken frat brother fired a bottle rocket out of his own butt. Louis Helmburg III alleges that Travis Hughes’s bottle-rocket stunt so startled him that he jumped back and fell off the deck. Oops.

6.) Suing Because A Little Boy Hit You

A New Jersey woman hit by a baseball at a Little League game sued the 11 year-old player who threw it. Spectator Elizabeth Lloyd wants catcher Matthew Migliaccio to pay her $150,000, alleging that his errant warm-up throw was “reckless.”

7.) Suing Because You Don’t Have Floss

Four inmates at a prison in West Palm Beach, Florida, have filed a lawsuit claiming “pain and suffering” due to their lack of access to dental floss. Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says there’s too great a risk of floss being used as a weapon or a rope.

8.) Suing Because You Love Your Honda Accord Too Much

In June 1998, a 19 year-old Carl Truman of Los Angeles won $74,000.00 and medical expenses when his neighbor ran his hand over with a Honda Accord. Mr. Truman apparently didn’t notice someone was at the wheel of the car whose hubcap he was trying to steal.

9.) Suing Because You Were Abused

David Hanser was one of the first Catholic priests to be caught up in the sex abuse scandal. In 1990, he settled a suit filed by one of his victims for $65,000. In the settlement, Hanser agreed not to work with children anymore, but the victim learned that the priest violated the agreement. He went public with the information… causing the priest to sue him for the same $65,000 because he violated his own part of the deal — to keep the settlement secret.

10.) Suing Because You Failed At School

Morgan Crutchfield, a student of Lincoln Memorial University and the John Duncan School of Law in Tennessee, wasted $80,000 on law school tuition. She did not complete her undergraduate degree and was ineligible to take the bar exam. So, she sued the schools.

11.) Suing Because Of Florida Panthers

Kenneth Nolan hit a wild panther while riding a motorcycle on the highway in Big Cypress National Preserve. He claims a roadside “animal detection system” failed to alert him. He decided to sue.

12.) Suing Because You Look Like Michael Jordan

Allen Heckard sued Michael Jordan and Phil Knight on July 2006. Heckard claims he has suffered emotional trauma because he looks like Michael Jordan.

Knowing that these people filed lawsuits is bad, but knowing that some of them won? It’s even worse.
