A constant reminder

People are addicted to selfies

In the past, you had to hire a painter if you wanted a picture of yourself. That's how times change! Today, any portrait is just a single click away.

Bad effects

Dr. Veal is a psychiatrist who treats people with body dysmorphic disorder. His patients all have one thing in common: they compulsively post selfies on all social media.

Psychologists warn:

Affected patients often have trouble recognizing their harmful behavior. A development into a narcissistic personality disorder is particularly noticeable in these people.

For some it becomes a full-time job

One of the patients was David Bowman. He spent 10 hours a day taking the perfect selfie. In the process, he took more than 200 photos a day. He was never satisfied with the results - in the end, he even wanted to take his own life.

He no longer wanted to live

His mother found him after a failed suicide attempt. After that, he went into therapy and had to do without his cell phone for longer and longer periods of time. From 30 minutes to several hours.

A new addiction

This digital narcissism is a phenomenon of our time. No image is good enough, other images are always better. People with low self-esteem are particularly susceptible to this new addiction.

Study reveals: Husbands stress women more than their children

It's hard to believe: Married women tend to be more stressed than single women, a recent study has brought to light.

This has health consequences

Married women are more likely to have headaches, sleep problems and constant fatigue, according to a study.

Men are children.

Until a man is 43 years old, he acts like a child. Now think about what could be more exhausting than a real child: a grown man acting like a child. So for married women, their husbands usually represent just another child.

A survey

Among all the other stresses a wife faces in her daily life, husbands are the biggest stressor. 56% of all women surveyed said that their husband causes more stress than their child.

Dogs grow up so fast

Do you also have a dog? If you still know your little Wuffer as a puppy, then you also know how quickly they grow up. But in our hearts they will always remain a little puppy.

He was such a sweet little boy

And no matter how old he is, he is still that sweet little one and always will be.

Sometimes you can hardly imagine it

... how this little ball of fur can become such a beautiful dog.

He has always been a bundle of joy

Even as a puppy he was already huge and today you can hardly lift him

The love for his pet

It is a very special bond that people without dogs can hardly understand

He is so fluffy

And no matter how old or big he is, he will always remain so fluffy

They grow up so fast

From the pillow you can see how much he has grown

Some things never change

You can hardly see any difference. What a pretty dog he has become (he always was)


Childhood photos are just something wonderful. Do you also have pictures of your dogs?

Fascinating things your body does without you realizing it

The body is a marvel

In terms of so many aspects, the human body is simply amazing. Some of it could be right out of a superhero movie. All these things your body can do without you having a clue.

1. the fastest muscles are in the eyes

There are only 2 of these muscles in the eyes, which are responsible for how fast you can open or close your eye. If a foreign object comes near, your eye can close in less than 100 milliseconds.

2. hair reveal if you sleep well

That sounds absolutely strange at first. But you can evaluate and improve your sleep behavior with your hair. Hair follicle cells are used to treat sleep disorders.

3. taste with the nose

Do you believe me when I tell you that your nose is responsible for 80% of your sense of taste? You can only taste salty, sweet, bitter and sour without your nose. The rest comes from smell.

4. you blink all the time

It is an automated process. About 44 minutes a day (while you are awake) you have your eyes closed. The eye must always be well hydrated, but would you expect it to be 44 minutes?

5. earwax

Your earwax makes your ear canal less inflamed. So don't remove your earwax every day, you're not doing yourself any good.

6. your body absorbs "shocks"

The body is able to withstand strong impacts without the tissue being destroyed. Many moving parts of the body interact here to minimize damage.

7. The Pinocchio effect

Where the name comes from, you can guess. But this effect is actually (almost) true. The nose doesn't grow directly, but the area around the nose gets significantly warmer when you tell a lie.

Rare photos that show you the unknown truth

The truth behind the pictures

You may have already seen these photos from a different perspective. But as you're about to see them, they leave you speechless. Not everything is as it seems when you see pictures on social media.

1. The heads on Easter Island.

Yes, those aren't just heads. In fact, they have bodies too! 150 These bodies are buried up to the shoulders, so everyone thinks they are just heads.

2. Downpatrick Head

50 meters from the coast, people once lived on this area. Houses and livestock, but now 50 meters separate this area from the mainland.

3. How a reporter looks from behind

Of course you can only see the front, but if you see how the lady looks from the back, it doesn't look so comfortable anymore.

4. Square Starfish

A starfish must always look like a star, right? Well, you're wrong. It looks like a small cookie, but it is a starfish even in this shape.

5. A globe for blind people

How do blind people actually look at a globe? Obviously with their hands. Because just because you're blind doesn't mean you can't travel the world.

6. The transparent frog

You can see every single organ on this frog. It is completely transparent. I wouldn't know how to hold him!
