Humans Could Possess A Sixth Sense!

Filed under: Science!

Sixth Sense

Unfortunately, we still can't see dead people. Darn! LOLz!

New research by the University of Massachusetts Medical School suggests humans may have an internal compass that can navigate them from one place to another!

By studying the monarch butterfly’s ability to use the earth's magnetic field to navigate in the absence of light, thanks to something called cryptochrome genes, researchers determined humans may have the same capabilities!

One of the monarch’s two cryptochrome genes — light-sensitive proteins that help regulate the daily rhythm of the body’s cells — is similar in its DNA sequence to the human cryptochrome gene.

The human cryptochrome gene is highly active in the eye, which raises the possibility that the earth's magnetic field can actually be seen (in some sense), providing the cryptochromes interact with the retina.

The discovery has prompted study authors to believe "a reassessment of human magnetosensitivity may be in order."

Other animals including butterflies, birds, and foxes use this internal navigation system, leaving scientists to ponder why we may have lost our ability to take advantage of this "sixth sense".

John B. Phillips of Virginia Tech, who proposed a similar idea last year, has hypothesized:

“It may be that our electromagnetic world is interfering with our ability to do this kind of stuff."

Researchers say the next step is understanding how the cryptochrome proteins sense the magnetic field and how they convey that information to the monarch butterfly's brain.

Ryan Phillippe And Breckin Meyer's Doggie Bromance

Ryan Phillippe And Breckin Meyer's Doggie Bromance


Looks like the man love between manly-man friends Ryan Phillippe and Breckin Meyer is getting even stronger.

We spotted Ryan and Breckin walking Ry's dog Maximillian Tuesday in LA.

Ryan gave Max to his son earlier this year, but so far the dog has been seen wagged tails with some of Hollywood's hawtest celebs — least of which is his dad.

Either way, we know hanging out with a dog can calm nerves, and we hope spending time with Max has helped Breckin.

There's no doubt Mr. Meyer has some butterflies in his belly about his new show Franklin & Bash debuting Wednesday on TNT.

Cher Lloyd Gets EIGHTH Tattoo!

Filed under: TwitterCher Lloyd


At the rate she's going, she's going to be covered from head to toe!

Cher Lloyd recently took to Twitter to show off yet ANOTHER new tattoo, which brings her number of inks up to eight!

Check out a photo of the work, which extends the bird she already had with five butterflies, a question mark and peace sign (above)!

Wow! She's almost got a full-on sleeve!

As always, it's beautiful work, gurl, but why don't you wait on the ninth until you're 18? LOLz!

Just saying! You have all the time in the world to get inked, no need to rush it now!

Another Tween Sensation From The Ark Music Factory - And She Actually Has Real Potential!

Holy crap. There's a tween sensation from the Ark Music Factory that might actually might have a shot at a legitimate music career!

It may not match the glory that is Rebecca Black's Friday, nor the discomforting 'she's too young' feel of anything Jenna Rose has come out with, but we actually want you to check out this charming little song and music video from 14-year-old Alana Lee Hamilton, called Butterflies (above)!

This girl is too cute! And the song is surprisingly decent, with the exception of the now-obligatory, mind numbing rap interlude!

Kind of has a Taylor Swift vibe, don't you think?! We're really rooting for this one!

And strangely enough, this track has reportedly hit the 124 spot on iTunes Australia, which is pretty impressive for an independent pop release with no promotion or radio play!

Here's hoping that someone will notice that she's got potential and hook her up with some legitimate writers and producers!

Keep it up, gurl!

Insects: It's What's For Dinner!

Filed under: YouTubeInsectsFunnyBugs


Check out this video depicting fat Americans being silly and unwilling to eat insects.

Though we're not sure this video's predictions are completely accurate, we do hope we will someday farm giant caterpillars so that enormous butterflies will land on people's shoulders like hawks!
