7 FACTS: Terrifying Things Nobody Told You About

When people are asked about the things that scare them the most, they will usually list the most common and the most predictable things. But, did you know that you never had a chance to make a list of the things you fear from the all the terrifying things in this world? Here is a list of those that everyone has kept from you.

Brain Eating Amoebas

There are amoebas that are capable of eating your brain and can only be detected on a microscopic level. However, that does not make them any less vicious. These Naegleria fowleri are contracted when you are swimming in lakes or are drinking tap water. If you are anywhere outside North America or Western Europe, you should be safe because evidence of these amoebas has only been discovered in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.

Too Much Water is Fatal

Even though it is not that likely, if you do drink too much, you can easily kill yourself because when the cells are full of H20, they can burst.

Australians Suffer from a Higher Risk of Skin Cancer

It is estimated that 2 out of 3 Aussies will be diagnosed with skin cancer once they reach the age of 70 years old. Now, you might be thinking that you can change those statistics by proper skin care and precaution but sadly, that is not the case. In fact, no amount of SPF is going to reverse this. The truth is that unlike other places, Australia is one continent that does not rely on the ozone to reflect the sun’s UV rays.

There is a Whole Planet of Bacteria in Your Belly Button

An average person has around 1,458 bacteria in their body. These bacteria have non-geographical restrictions and can be from places you may not have ever ventured to.

Tons of Bridges in the U.S. Are Unsafe

The term Fracture Critical given to bridges is scarier than you might think. It does not mean that a bridge has a single fault; it actually is a warning that the slightest break will result in the entire structure of the bridge falling down. If you want to be super safe about this, you should look up the bridges that fall under the Fracture Critical category. Now that you know this and if you live in the U.S., you might be a bit scared when travelling on overpasses.

There are More Dead People in the World

For every person, there are 15 dead people. So, in case of a zombie apocalypse, the odds are not in your favor.

Don’t Let the World Lose all of Its Wheat

You may not know it but you have a hand in this. There is a certain fungus, known as the Ug99, which is powerful enough to infect whole wheat crops. Right now, it is common in a lot of African countries and can easily spread out to different parts of the world fairly fast, that is if you carry the infected crop to other parts of the world. It’s just a mold but its impact is devastating on a large level.

7 THINGS: How Really Fit People Stay in Shape

DENSDOME- ​ The person who confesses to actually crave vegetables and looks forward to her daily workout, yet never seems to obsess about every calorie and eats dessert without even feeling guilty?

That person doesn’t just have really good genes. Whether knowing it or not, she has built up a set of habits over the years that allows her to stay in shape without putting in a lot of effort. And those habits can equal the difference between a really fit person—and a couch potato.
Here are 7 things really fit people do to stay in shape:

1. They don’t diet

Have you ever known someone in really great shape who was constantly trying out every new fad diet?
Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Because for the most part, fit people don’t diet—they make healthy eating a part of their lifestyle.

While I recommend sticking to an 80/20 nutrition plan, ultimately, the key to staying fit and eating healthy is learning to listen to your body. What makes you feel good? What keeps you feeling full and energized throughout the day? 
What helps you kick ass during your workouts? What keeps you feeling and looking fit?

If you learn to answer these questions for yourself, you’ll soon be on the road to embracing healthy eating as a lifestyle, not following every new diet that comes along.

2. They find a way to enjoy exercise

If you’re one of those people who absolutely dreads every minute of your approaching treadmill workout, and hate it even more once you’re there, it’s time to find a different approach to exercise.

Because more often than not, fit people find a way to actually enjoy—and even look forward to—their workouts.

And while that may not always mean they’re excited to lace up their sneakers and go for a run on a rainy day, it does mean that they like the feeling of being fit and value that more than their desire to sit on the couch.

If you really hate to exercise, the problem may be with your workout, not you. Everyone enjoys different things—I used to hate working out when running was all I did, but ever since I discovered HIIT, I can hardly go a day without working out.

So find something you like—whether it’s HIIT, sports, boot camps, CrossFit, or something else entirely—and start looking forward to your workouts, not dreading them.

3. They prioritize their health and fitness

While most people let work, family, social engagements and other priorities get in the way of exercise, really fit people make exercise a priority no matter what.

Yes, this may mean having to get up 15 minutes earlier when you’d rather be sleeping, working out on vacation, or fitting in a workout even when your life seems busier than you can handle. 
But once you build up the habit, it actually becomes harder to not exercise because you become so used to prioritizing it in your life.

4. They don’t eat perfect 100% of the time

Sure, there’s that rare person with 5% body fat that refuses even a single bite of chocolate and seems to be ok with it. But most of us need to cheat a little in order to keep our sanity.

Giving yourself a cheat meal or day every once in a while ensures you don’t feel bitter about your healthy diet and go crazy and binge on all the things you’re missing out on.

So don’t feel guilty if you enjoy a cookie, some dark chocolate or your favorite treat once in a while—just don’t let it become too frequent of a habit or you’ll end up losing all that hard work you put in during your workouts.

5. They get a lot of sleep

If you still think being fit is only about how often you work out, you need to think again. Because one of the top things fit people do to stay healthy and fit isn’t exercise based at all—it’s sleep.

Not only does sleep give you the energy you need to work out on a regular basis, it also helps regulate your metabolism, repair your muscles, boost your athletic performance and more.

Aim for at least 7-8 hours each night, and you’ll be a healthier, fitter and a happier person overall.

6. They hang around other fit people

You know that saying, “you are what you eat?” Well, you are who you eat with (and socialize with) as well.

Think about it: if all your friends are constantly getting fast food and donuts for dessert, and always choosing sedentary activities like going to movies or sitting around for hours, what do you think you’re going to do? Probably eat junk and sit around all day too.

On the other hand, if your friends are into healthy cooking, or trying new restaurants with local, fresh ingredients, and want to go bike riding or organize a pick up game of soccer for fun, you’re most likely going to join in and be more active as a result.

This may be difficult at first if you have old friends with unhealthy habits, but you can try and encourage them to be healthy too with small adjustments to your usual activities—and you can always try and meet some new more active, healthy friends as well.

7. They stay active outside of the gym

While fit people always make it a priority to get in planned exercise on a regular basis, they don’t limit exercise solely to the gym (or home gym)—they do all they can do stay active outside of their workouts as well.

And most of all, believe in yourself. You can do it. Now go get started.

MMM CRASH: 7 things you must know before investing in networking schemes

​As you read this, many Zimbabweans are in tears. Thousands of them invested their hard earned savings in the popular Ponzi scheme called MMM, among them were civil servants, vendors and more.

However, the scheme collapsed and many have subsequently lost thousands of dollars to the fraudulent online pyramid scheme.
The social financial network, which relied on an accelerating number of new members to pay off the old, abruptly terminated its services without any prior notice last week leaving participants stranded.
To avoid falling victim to such, here are some steps you should take:

1. Avoid greed

The reason why most people fall victim top such schemes is the fact that they are greedy. For example why would you invest in a scheme that promises you almost 50% returns on your original investment in a relatively short time.
So while it is good to dream big, if a scheme is too good, it most likely is. So do not let greed push you into doing something you will later regret.

2. Make inquiries

Questions like: What do i stand to lose? Who is the originator of this scheme? Is this legal? What are the likely risks? Are there positive reviews of the scheme? Questions like this will help you to determine if investing in the scheme will be a wise idea or not.
Ask objective people, not those who have already put too much into the scheme to be objective in their evaluations.

3. Do your research

While you can rely on people if you are sure that their evaluations are objective enough, you might need to conduct your own research. Google and Wikipedia are some of the best sources of such information. You should put them to good use.
Carrying out adequate research on your own, can stop you from making the costly mistake of trusting in another person and ending up losing your hard earned savings like the people in Zimbabwe.

4. Invest only if you understand

One key advice from top investors has been that you should never invest if you do not understand the business. Bill Gates and Aliko Dangote, two of the world’s richest men repeat this advice regularly, so you should keep it in mind.
If an investment scheme seems too convoluted and complex, you should either take time to understand it properly or avoid investing in it totally.

5. Be wary of pyramid schemes

Pyramid investment schemes, that is investment schemes, where you are asked to put down some money and bring a certain number of people, who will in turn bring another set of people, which is also known as networking are highly risky.
In several cases, the pyramid falls over time and most people are left with heartbreak. So as a rule, it is better to avoid pyramid schemes entirely.

6. Documentation

When investing in any scheme, paperwork is vital, it is especially important to see documents and agreements even when investing in a networking scheme.
Ask for signed agreements drawn up by a qualified lawyer, so that if anything goes wrong you can sue the organization to court. Also avoid organizations with no permanent office address and any not registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).

7. Evangelizing

Evangelizing is actually more of a sign that someone is out to profit from you at your expense, so be wary when someone begins to preach and persuade you to put your money somewhere. It may turn out to be a scam or a fraud.
The above list is not exhaustive, if you have any other tips that would help investors to be more careful, you are welcome to drop them in the comments below this post.
