    I was surprised to learn that the Great Wall of China produced air pollution.

    "Fake Smile"
    I knew that. Well not that it stimulated the brain. But I`ve long known that depressed or moody people keep waiting to get happy. But why would anything nice come to you all cranky and bummed?

    You have to ACT happy first. The emotion follows the behavior, not the other way around. Then you are happy. Yes I know this is no cure for clinical depression, but still it`s good advice for most people.

    The fact about people is not entirely true.
    Some people turn energy into ideas, but most people turn energy into stupidity.

    This is how people in retail stay friendly. We are forced to smile and thus it forces endorphins in our body. Can I sue?

    Well, I knew all of these...
    Robert A Wilson discussed some of them at length in his books...
    Still time well spent *smiles*

    @Gerry1: I can tell you from both experience and discussion with others:
    Smiling and acting happy does make depressed people "feel a bit better" it`s true!
    But like a caffeine high? When it wears off (and it quickly does) you feel a LOT worse than before...

    I don`t get the oxygen one. Is he saying if all the oxygen gas in the atmosphere disappeared, water would break down? no it wouldn`t... why would it? or does he mean all oxygen including the ones bound in water molecules disappeared for 5 seconds, oceans would lose hydrogen to space? Duh... Is that a revelation to anyone?

    @Paperduck ~ I think it is the fact that it would take only 5 seconds for ALL of the hydrogen contained in all the worlds oceans to escape into space that is the amazing part.
