FACT FOR YOU:
Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
Sweat doesn't actually stink. You might notice that any sweat you produce right after a shower doesn't smell so bad. That's because your sweat itself isn't stinky; it's the bacteria on your skin that breaks the sweat down that causes the odor. Additionally, you'll find that the sweat on your arms and legs doesn't smell as much as your armpits. That's because sweat glands in your armpits secrete more protein into a dark, damp environment—the perfect place and food for bacteria.

A guest at Walt Disney World was filmed hopping on and off an attraction over the weekend, allegedly in pursuit of a cucumber. The incident took place on the “Living With the Land” attraction at Epcot, which is described as a “gentle boat tour” of Disney World’s experimental greenhouses and agricultural areas. In the footage, which was initially posted to TikTok, a woman can be seen jumping off the boat, reaching for something from one of the vines, and then stumbling — and falling — as she attempts to return to the ride vehicle. Guests are not permitted to stand up or exit the attraction. As seen in both the original video and the re-uploaded version, on-screen messages appear to indicate that the woman was attempting to steal a cucumber growing from one of the vines. Viewers are now describing the woman’s actions as dangerous and “completely inappropriate.” A representative for Disney World was not available to comment on the incident. (https://bit.ly/3gLHSZj)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by BetterResultsAdvertising.com
California man accused of swiping a ring-tailed lemur from the San
Francisco Zoo and Gardens could spend up to one year behind bars
should he be found guilty of the crime. Cory McGilloway made his
initial appearance in federal court Monday on a charge of violating
the Endangered Species Act. If convicted, he faces up to a year in
jail and up to $50,000 in fines. Prosecutors have alleged that
McGilloway, a 31-year-old from Los Angeles, sneaked into the zoo’s
Lipman Family Lemur Forest on Oct. 13, 2020. He allegedly left with
one of the zoo’s four lemurs, named Maki, who was reported missing
the next morning. A quick investigation uncovered evidence of forced
entry into the enclosure, sparking a frantic search for the missing
critter, which zoo officials described as “highly endangered” and
requiring “special care.” Authorities also offered a $2,100
reward for information leading to Maki’s safe return. Just two days
later, a woman recorded a video of a man, who authorities now believe
to be McGilloway, walking a lemur on a leash on Treasure Island,
about two miles off San Francisco’s mainland shore. With help from
San Francisco Animal Care and Control, Maki was recaptured and
returned to the zoo. (https://bit.ly/3h0EatB)
