|15 Interesting Facts About Dreams||
1. You Forget 90% of Your Dreams
Within 5 minutes of waking, half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone.
2. Blind People also Dream
People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and emotion.
3. Everybody Dreams
Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological disorder). If you think, you are not dreaming, you just forget your dreams.
4. In Our Dreams We Only See Faces, That We already Know
Our mind is not inventing faces – in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or remember. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during ourdreams.
5. Not Everybody Dreams in Color
A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number dream in full color. Studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960s. Today, only 4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to color media.

|“Healthy and Fit Can Come in Many Sizes”||
NBC looks at the myth that “fat = unhealthy”
By Jessica O’Brien, Beauty Editor
After watching this video, and hearing the assumption that is presented about the heavier woman, I see this is a great example of what I go through some times as a plus size woman. After moving from Massachusetts to South Carolina with my husband in fall 2008, I was rejected by two different insurance companies because of my weight. I begged and pleaded for them to let me appeal. I told them to do the research to see my weight loss results over the past three years, and to look at things like my fitness abilities and how phenomenal my physicals look on paper as a measure of my health and risk. I have great cholesterol (including great triglycerides and HDL), great BP, great resting pulse, etc… Even at my highest weight of 350ish, I had great numbers. I’m not saying everyone at that weight reads so healthy, but for me, that’s how it was.
Yes, I need to lose more weight for my future health, but wouldn’t taking overweight people on to insurance company and providing incentives to help foster healthy habits be a more positive approach vs. giving me one less chance to have proper health coverage? I did finally find a company to cover me on an individual plan in October ’08, but, basically, the coverage sucks. To boot, I pay a $75 per month “surcharge” because of my BMI. I need to weight under 216 for 6 consecutive months to get the charge dropped. Yes, it is easy to just say that I should lose the weight. And, some day, hopefully this year, maybe next, I will be below that weight.
My point is that I am not going to hit a crash diet to get to that weight, and I am very happy that I *am* as healthy as I am today. I do not need a number on the scale to define my self worth.
This video also brings up a term called “Normal Weight Obesity” which I think is important for people to hear about. Thin doesn’t always equal healthy, and overweight doesn’t always equal unhealthy. Health is not just the “absence of disease”. Like the doctor discusses at the end, it’s really not a “get out of jail free card” for people to just go and gain weight, but a wake up call to our society that fitting into a size 2 does not guarantee a clean bill of health. Yes, there are people who may naturally be a size 2, but most women are not. Like I mentioned on the SKORCH Face Book page about one of the Dove videos that speak to “fabricating beauty” via Photoshop, families need to reinforce to our young ladies that bodies come in different sizes and shapes, and I’ll be damned if my future daughters don’t have anything else in their life than a positive self image!
|I Want To Work For Diddy||
On this season of “I want to work for diddy” the star of the house had to be Ms Queen Bitch, Ivory. Ivory was the one always causing drama but something really bothered me about her…. that damn white eye shadow. I wish I could find a picture of the gaudy ass blue eye shadow she wore, which wasn’t too much better than the white.
