Being in love floods our brains with chemicals that can induce feelings of everything from pleasure to intense focus and attachment. these chemicals can cause reactions throughout the body, which might help explain that tingly-all-over feeling we get when we see a loved one. #valentinesday #valentine #love #couples #science #body #health #brain #dating #feelings #emotions

#ski jumpers compete in one of the wildest sports in the #winterolympics. when they launch into the air, they sometimes travel over 360 feet, or the length of about 9 school buses or 3.5 blue whales. #pyeongchang2018 #olympics #skiing #skijump #athelete #sports @andreaswellinger @marenlundby

Happy thanksgiving, everyone! enjoying your food coma? on thanksgiving, people across the united states devour feasts that typically consist of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pie. to get a better picture of americans' favorite side dish recipes in each state, business insider consulted google. looking at search data from the past three years, google's researchers found the most uniquely highly searched recipe that people in every state (plus washington dc) googled during november. the researchers didn't look at the most popular dish for every state (which would've been pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and apple pie in all 50). instead, they focused on the most distinct, and then found the recipes with the highest search volume for each state.

Even though we're now more aware of the risks of too many sweets, there are still plenty of myths about sugar and what it actually does to us. after all, sugar is just the name for a simple carbohydrate, and there's always been some sugar in our diets. the problem is that today the average american consumes more than twice what the us food and drug administration (fda) — and four times what the world health organization (who) — recommend as safe. and that's dangerous. here's how eating sugar, especially too much of the added sugar that's not naturally found in foods, affects your body. #sugar #candy #halloween #health #diet #energy

Texans prefer 3 musketeers, new yorkers want kit kats, and californians like almond joy. that's according to a recent survey by influenster, a website that hosts product reviews. the company asked 23,154 americans to name their favorite halloween candy out of a list of 52 top-selling candies in the united states, and then found the most distinctively popular candy in each state. influenster didn't look at the candy totals for every state (which would've been overwhelmingly reese's peanut butter cups nationwide). instead, they focused on the most distinct. the company added that the number of people they polled in each state is representative of their corresponding populations. #candy #halloween #map #trickortreat

We love famous last words. there's a reason there are so many books listing memorable deathbed sayings throughout history out there. perhaps we'd just rather believe well-known figures tend to die saying something clever and profound. it makes death itself a little less scary. #lastwords #quote #history #💀
