Apparently, Head, and Parents: epochayur people that can swim underwater in chlorine pools with their eyes open are not to be trusted oonabashed This is true. I once did this to cheat at a pool game, and a kid in goggles saw me do it. He wanted to know how, so I told him I was part mermaid. He wanted to call bullshit, but I was like, look kid, I can prove t, but you're not allowed to tell anyone under 18. He said what about his mom, I said, sure, but she won't believe you, so it didn't matter if he ratted on me to an adult. He was skeptical but agreed. For the next ten minutes l executed any number of water related feats- I've been swimming since l was 3 and was on the swimming and diving team in high school. I crossed the entire span of the pool underwater without taking a breath. I sat on the bottom of the pool for a minute. I lifted him over my head while only treading water. I floated face down without moving for a convincing stretch of time. I did a pretty choice inward pike off the diving board. This was what really convinced him. He'd seen a dolphin show once, apparently, and thought it was pretty comparable So yeah. This kid was straight up convinced I was a mermaid and was losing his shit and trying to figure out how to get around his promise He went over to the hottub to tell all the parents and they all like, smiled and laughed and nodded. He could tell they didn't believe him. He came back and was like... You were right about adults." "Yeah kid,I know." Well but, you're the most important discovery I've ever made! I gotta tell someone!" "Well. You need to establish some credibility first," Itold him. You have to prove to people that you're a serious scientific thinker, and then when you say stuff like this, they might believe you." He thought about this for a second. "But what if you just showed them?" and I said it was against half mermaid rules to show adults anything that could make them suspicious. He took this seriously. He spent the rest of his time in the pool following me around. I taught him how to hold his breath underwater without plugging his nose and how to do a backstroke I'm still proud of this, and regret nothing marky-mark-quack-quack-quack 698,054 notes People that can swim underwater in chlorine pools with their eyes open are not to be trusted

Apparently, Bored, and Friends: Scientists have finally confirmed what we' ve always been hoping for: being lazy is a sign of increased intelligence. Now there looks like there is actually a legitimate reason for dodging the gym and it's all down to your intellect... According to new research, people who are more intelligent spend more time lounging around than their more physical friends, the Independent reports. BOY EVERYONEIS STUPID EXCEPT ME A US-based study supports the theory. people with higher lQs don't get bored easily. therefore they're happy to spend more time thinking. Whereas people with lower intellects, apparently need more stimulation from physical or external activity to fend off boredom. Scientists from the Florida Gulf Coast University decided to re-ignite a 30-year-old test called the need for cognition. to see how their students responded to different scenarios. The quiz required participants to rate how much they agreed with statements, challenging their thinking abilities and how necessary it is for each individual to think in their daily lives. The statements included phrases such as 1 really enjoy a task that involves coming up with new solutions to problems and 1only think as hard as I have to. A selection of thinkers and 'non thinkers' were then selected from those surveyed and their movements were tracked for a week to test their activity levels. Intriguingly they found the thinkers were a lot less active than the 'non-thinkers.' although their weekend activity showed no difference between the two AW,ILOVE THESE LAZY SATURDAys Their findings were described as highly significant and robusť in the Journal of Health Psychology. although the reason for their shared activity levels at a weekend has not been explained. This may be an interesting outcome, as being more intelligent is all well and good. but it could have negative impacts on a person's health, if they are prone to increased laziness. The British Psychological Society said. Utimately, an important factor that may help more thoughtful individuals combat their lower average activity levels is awareness. Awareness of their tendency to be less active, coupled with an awareness of the cost associated with inactvity, more thoughtful people may then choose to become more active throughout the day. Well that's just confirmed all my suspicions about life. Thanks science. Being lazy is a sign of high intelligence
