Hysterical strength is a phenomenon where individuals exhibit remarkable physical strength in exceptional circumstances, surpassing their normal capabilities. For instance, a woman who rescued several children by fending off a polar bear and another who lifted a car to a height sufficient to rescue a person are both examples of this remarkable display of strength.
Zac Clark, a 16-year-old football player from Ohio, demonstrated remarkable strength in 2019 when he lifted a car weighing 3,000 lbs to help his neighbor in need.
In 2013, Hannah (16 years old) and Haylee (14 years old), two teenage sisters from Oregon, demonstrated incredible strength when they lifted a tractor to rescue their father who was trapped beneath it.
In the mid 1770s, a group of English physiciansconducted experiments to investigate the limits of human survival in extreme temperatures. They took turns exposing themselves to temperatures as high as 260F/127C in specially heated rooms. Through their research, they were able to demonstrate the connection between perspiration and the body‘s ability to regulate heat.
A 1982 Harvard study confirmed that Tibetan monks can raise their body temperature with their minds. Practitioners of “g-tummo” yoga demonstrated the ability to raise the temperature of different parts of their bodies through meditation alone.
If you rub fresh garlic on the soles of your feet, about an hour later you can actually taste the garlic. This is because the molecule that causes garlic’s smell, allicin, is small enough to penetrate the skin and blood vessels, where it goes all the way up to your mouth and nose.
When a girl from India lost both her arms, she received big, dark and hairy arm transplants from a man. However after a few years, her new arms became more slender and also changed colour to match her skin tone.
Our skin is covered in invisible stripes. First observed by Alfred Blaschko in the early 1900s, they appeared not to follow any known body system. Visible only under UV light, these stripes now known to be cellular relics of fetal development from singular-cell beings to fully formed humans.
