Big Brother Canada Finale Ends On A Scandalous Note After A CRAZY Voting Mishap! Watch HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsReality TV

One lousy vote never changed anything, right? WRONG! Just ask the cast of Big Brother Canada!

The live finale for the first season of the show saw Jillian MacLaughlin and Gary Levy competing against each other for the grand prize, but unfortunately their fate was in the hands of a jury member who didn't quite understand the rules of voting!

Topaz Brady claimed she was "150%" sure when she locked in her final ballot, however that didn't appear to be the case as she was STUNNED when host Arisa Cox said she had chosen Jillian!

Ch-ch-check out the voting snafu (above)!

Apparently, Topaz thought they were supposed to be voting for who they wanted to ELIMINATE instead of who should win, and she actually meant to give the nod to Gary!

But like we said, it's only one vote, right? Well not exactly, as Jillian went on to win… BY ONE VOTE!!!

The controversial finish certainly had our neighbors up north buzzing as Gary CLEARLY would have won! But as they say, rules are rules!

Either Canadians are the MASTERS of reality TV drama, or Topaz needs to pay better attention, eh! LOLz!

Crossing Your Arms Helps Eliminate Pain

Filed under: HealthWellness

Arms crossed

A study published in the journal Pain has found that crossing your arms helps reduce the brains perception of pain.

Researchers induced a "pinprick" sensation on persons hands either at their sides, then crossed, and found the latter position confused the brain's processing of information coming from multiple regions.

By studying the participants brain regions in the experiment, researchers discovered the confusion is due to a misalignment between the brain's external mapping of where it assumes the hands SHOULD BE and the internal map of the source of new pain information.

The lead researcher of the study said in a statement:

"When you cross your arms these maps are not activated together anymore, leading to less effective brain processing of sensory stimuli, including pain, being perceived as weaker."

Don't get too excited though because this probably will only help reduce pain when it is inflicted upon your hands. Still inneresting though!
