Kangaroo Farts Are Slowly Killing Us.

It's been a long-held belief that studying the combination of microbes in kangaroo farts would help scientists figure out how to curb the planet's growing greenhouse gas emissions problem. However, recently, it's been discovered that that's very much not the case.

In fact, kangaroo farts can be linked to global warming just as much as that of cows.

A research team at the University of Wollongong was determined to learn more about the benefits of kangaroo gas microbes when they made this startling new discovery, lead scientists Adam Munn explained.

"The idea that kangaroos have unique gut microbes has been floating around for some time and a great deal of research has gone into discovering these apparently unique microbes."

How does a scientist study kangaroo farts, you ask? Well, it begins with putting the kangaroos in individual rooms and feeding them a grip load of alfalfa. (Yeah, who knew alfalfa could make everyone so gassy?)
The air was tested, and well, Munn and his team were certainly surprised.

They found that kangaroos only produce less methane because they tend to eat a lot less than cows; however, per pound of food, the amount of methane gas emitted by cows vs. kangaroos are pretty much the same.

Dun, dun, DUNNNNNNN!!!

So how do you feel, kangaroo fans? Do you feel mildly betrayed by your favorite marsupial friends down under?

Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow the WTF Street Journal.

Top 05 Best Telescopes For Kids In Love With Astronomy
Exploring the sky with a telescope can be a rich, fun, and fascinating experience for children of all ages. With a wide variety of telescopes for beginners, it can be difficult to choose the right one to bring the moon, stars, and planets closer together. Do not panic! Here's a list of our picks and items to consider when buying a kids telescope. What to look for in the best telescope for kids: • Aperture is the most important function of the telescope. The size of the aperture determines how much light the telescope receives and how much light it receives the wider the aperture, the brighter and clearer the image. However, the wider the aperture, the wider The Best Telescope for Teenager, so you need to balance it. • Which type of telescope: glass, reflector or composite - we'll take a closer look at the different strengths and weaknesses of the different telescope styles below, but here's a shorter version. Reflective telescopes can only see the sky, while reflectors and compound telescopes can see the earth and sky at night. Reflective visors usually take up less space and are a little more powerful for children if they are only interested in astronomical activities, but they also require maintenance. Refractory telescopes tend to be long and thin, but they are perfect for kids who simply don't want to use the telescope to observe planets and stars and have probably never thought about turning it off. The compound telescope has two mirrors, which are more powerful but provide a darker image than the other two styles. They are great for astrophotography. • Magnification is determined by the telescope eyepiece. Significant increases are important, but the cost depends on the openness. Tall eyepieces are not very effective with telescopes with small apertures. Many telescopes have multiple eyepieces for viewing with increasingly lower magnifications. • Many telescopes include accessories such as tripods. Bring astronomy software home and reduce your initial investment. All these aspects must be considered when choosing a telescope for children. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. • Children's telescopes should be easy and simple to use. Super complex telescopes are no longer fun. • Compact size is important. Younger children don't like to use large telescopes. • Maintenance of the child's telescope is required. Many small and fragile parts can easily be lost or damaged. Unfortunately, there are many telescopes that are perfect for young astronomers. 01.

Compound (aka SCT or Maksutov) Telescopes: These telescopes combine the mirror and the lens to bring the air in a closed tube closer to the viewer. Like the refraction device, this type of telescope usually has an IPS behind the telescope. RELATED POSTS HERE
The Real Reason for Supernatural Concepts
Remember back in 2013 when Kpop went into full supernatural concept mode? From EXO's Wolf, VIXX's On & On, Boyfriend's Bounce, etc, etc... there were vampires, aliens, werewolves galore. Nowadays in 2016, though, we're seeing a rise to realism. BTS dealing with drugs (I Need U) or Monsta X dealing with totalitarianism (All In) But, why? "Zombies are the perfect metaphor." (source) Basically, using the supernatural has always been a way of talking about real life issues, without actually bringing them up. For example, in Harry Potter House Elves would represent slaves, the discrimination and fear of werewolves represented how ridiculous racism is, etc. Fiction allows us to talk about important issues in a sly way. For example, VIXX's Hyde portrayed them as vampire-like, living in a spooky house and dark forest, growing black wings and almost being taken over by a monster. At its core, this is a song about dangerous relationships. A partner who is emotionally unstable, but charming. Hurting you but begging to have you back. This can be a metaphor for abusive relationships of all kinds. They repeat over and over that "that man isn't me, there is a crazy 'other me' inside of me." Just as abusers usually do after a moment of violent anger. Hiding this message behind the mask of "monsters" and "dark angels" makes it easier to consume and talk about. But take away the supernatural and its a serious issue they bring up. Another great example is Monster by Big Bang. They dress up as literal monsters, but talk about how just because they are different and not fitting into the society's mold they aren't bad people. It's an anthem for misfits, and a message to society to stop being so cruel. So why are we shedding the costumes now? Why are things suddenly more...real? We're done hiding. The problems can no longer stay hidden, we need to talk about them. No more using vampires and ghosts as metaphors, the general public is more comfortable discussing issues like depression, drugs, mental health, discrimination, etc. The move to realism means that we're being realistic about the problems - we're addressing them head on. That being said, there is nothing wrong with supernatural concepts being used to talk about issues! Often people can't understand something in its original form. For example, maybe someone doesn't see the need for LGBTQ+ rights. Give them a love story with a couple that is forced apart, never to be together (perhaps a vampire and a human??) because society says its unnatural. If while reading the story or watching the movie, that person feels upset about this poor couple torn apart by society, maybe they will see the correlation between their belief that gay marriage is wrong. Basically, I think that the constant changing of concept trends is fascinating and it means much more than we think!

There are ways to not only stop the destruction but reverse some of its deadly effects. Chill With Your Carbon Footprint. One of the main reason the oceans are being destroyed is because of global warming so to help reduce the carbon foot print. Walk more, car pool, take shorter showers, and don't blast your heat in the winter! It really will make difference. Make Healthy and Sustainable Seafood Meals. Many fish species are rapidly depleting do to high demand and vanishing habitats. When eating seafood make sure to choose the options that are not being overexploited. Help Clean The Beach! When you're having a wonderful day at the beach and you stumble across litter, empty cans and plastic don't just leave it in the sand!

I Was Stalked and Filmed on a Subway? :(
Recently I had a very creepy experience on the subway. A had a very odd man sit next to me and start filming me secretly (though obviously not so secretly since I noticed) He also tried to follow me but luckily I tricked him. For more info you can check the video below. **this is not common AT ALL in Korea, it only happened to me in Seoul because that's where I live. This could, and does, happen all over the world no matter what culture~** What I hope you take from this: 1. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. If someone sits next to you (even if it seems totally normal) just take a millisecond to recognize that - don't just stay zoned in on your phone. 2. If you feel uncomfortable - get up and move. I didn't do this but I should have. I didn't need to "prove" he really was creepy, regardless of if he was or not, I have every right to just move away. 3. If someone made you feel uncomfortable, trust your gut and keep an eye on them in some way. If I hadn't noticed him earlier, he might have followed me off the train without me knowing. 4. Let someone know where you are and what was up. Even if its just texting a close friend that is dependable "hey I'm at XYZ bus stop, there was a weird guy on the bus lol" just so someone knows. In case something happens to you, it could help people find you. 5. If you see something weird happening to another girl, try to do something. When I see guys getting too close to girls on crowded trains I always try to make it seem like I'm with the girl too so he's outnumbered, or I stare them down so they know they aren't being sneaky. Be safe out there everyone, and just be alert :)
Acne - What to Eat, What Not to Eat
No matter how much we prevent it, acne can still find its way to form on - or under, or even both - our skin. In most cases the acne is mild and will go away on its own (or quicker if you take some form of acne medication) but it’s also common to see acne breakouts happening so frequently despite a number of medications used - a condition that we know as acne-prone skin. Here’s what you need to know about this skin issue and why it can happen to all of us. Diet for acne-prone skin; what the skin needs? We used to read that acne-prone skin happens mostly among oily skin types and while that can be true, the latest studies and discoveries indicate that acne-prone skin can happen to all of us regardless of skin type. Yes, even dry or sensitive skin type can suffer from an acne problem! This is due to the fact that acne can form due to a number of factors. And in most cases, several factors together cause acne breakouts and not just one single factor. But rest assured, there are several types of acne treatment available to make your skin belmish-free. Since this is a multi-factoral skin issue, dermatologists usually need to prescribe multiple medications and treatments - but the main focus will be on your dietary habits and leading a healthy lifestyle. How does diet affect our skin? The diet plays a big role when it comes to the overall health of our skin. After all, what we eat shows on our skin. For the acne-prone skin, there are some foods that you need to avoid, replacing them with foods that you need to eat instead. Multiple studies have shown that certain food groups cause acne. Refined sugar, also known as high-glycemic carbohydrates, is very inflammatory for acne-prone skin. Carbs and sugar trigger a spike in insulin which is a type of hormone. Excess of this hormone causes the oil glands within the skin to produce more oil and in turn, increases the chance of you getting acne. Other food groups such as dairy and trans-fat are also found to cause acne on our skin but high-glycemic carbohydrates cause the most damage. Since we know these food groups cause acne, replacing them with foods that are known to minimize the chances of your skin developing acne - and the chance of them coming back in the future - is the right way to go. What foods are believed to help your skin? The opposite of high-glycemic carbohydrates is the low-glycemic sources that we know as complex carbohydrates. These are beneficial for the skin. Such foods are high in vitamins A, E, and B vitamins as well as minerals that are beneficial in reducing inflammation. Besides this, they also speed up the skin healing process, and strengthen the skin barrier. This helps your skin to be more resilient and able to heal the acne or even prevent any acne from happening. Examples of foods that are in the complex carbs category include whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies, and legumes. Other food groups that you can add to your diet are protein sources from poultry and fish. Besides this, fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel are good anti-inflammatory foods and beneficial to heal inflamed skin. There’s no specific rule for this diet. Just trying to include them as the major part of your diet is the key to ensure your skin gets enough healthy nutrients to eliminate potential factors that can cause you acne.
