A Few Answers To Questions You Always Wondered About

What does confidence look like to a woman?

Physically, confident guys are much more calm or deliberate in their movements. There’s not tonnes of figiting etc. They just seem to be able to settle into a position and become relaxed. This also goes for walking – which comes across as more deliberate and natural. They’re also not generally concerned about how much space they occupy. Not like, randomly sprawling, but just able to keep square shoulders and longer strides. Especially as a woman, you can tell how confident they are when they’re hitting on you, based on the space they’re comfortable taking up. More confident guys tend to start closer to you (for instance when they sit down next to you at a bar), and not be so electrically aware of touching. Unconfident guys tend to get a bit jumpy, and sometimes almost glaze over when space starts to be closed.

In terms of speech, there’s rarely much wavering, no squeaking. All relatively level or appropriate. They’re not afraid to be loud, and are less apologetic if they’re too loud (although I dislike that last bit). Some guys are more measured with their Words and are comfortable saying less, some talk tonnes. But you never really get the sense that they’ve withdrawn or are critiquing themselves. They’re present and aware of what they’re saying.

23-Year-Old Student Has A $1 Million Bounty On Her Head For Killing 100 ISIS Militants

February 13, 2017 | 11 Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

In 2014, now 23-year-old Joanna Palani dropped out of a university in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she was studying political science. The reason? She felt called to rejoin the Kurdish Peshmerga in Iraq and Syria, where military forces continue to fight against ISIS.

Palani was inspired to do so because of her background and heritage. An Iranian-Kurdish descendant, she was born in a refugee camp in Ramadi, Iraq, and fired her first gun at age 9. According to a  Facebook post, she felt propelled “to fight for women’s rights, for democracy – for the European values I learned as a Danish girl.”

After returning to Denmark in 2015, authorities banned her from returning to the region. Palani broke the strict anti-terror laws, however, and rejoined her Kurdish unit fighting ISIS in northern Syria between June and October of 2016 because she “couldn’t bear to leave the women she had trained.” She spent days on the front lines, her Russian rifle trained on jihadists. Palani can also be credited with helping to liberate Yazidi girls who were imprisoned as sex slaves while fighting alongside Peshmerga forces in Iraq.

Feed Your Brain With These Fascinating Facts

Venezuelan serial killer and cannibal Dorangel Vargas – who confessed to killing and eating at least ten individuals – didn’t consume fat people because he thought they had too much cholesterol.

Sure I eat people,” the candid cannibal told reporters. “Anyone can eat human flesh, but you have to wash and garnish it well to avoid diseases… I only eat the parts with muscles, particularly thighs and calves which are my favorite … I make a very tasty stew with the tongue and I use the eyes to make a nutritious and healthy soup.” Vargas said he prefers the taste of men to women and will not eat hands, feet or testicles, “although I’ve been on the point of trying them on various occasions.” He said he rejected overweight men because they had too much cholesterol, and the elderly were spared because their flesh “is contaminated and very tough.”

To the end, Guiteau was actively making plans to start a lecture tour after his perceived imminent release and to run for President himself in 1884, while at the same time continuing to delight in the media circus surrounding his trial. He was dismayed when the jury was unconvinced of his divine inspiration, convicting him of the murder. He was found guilty on January 25, 1882. He appealed, but his appeal was rejected, and he was hanged on June 30, 1882 in the District of Columbia. At his execution, Guiteau famously danced his way up to the gallows and while on the scaffold he waved at the audience, shook hands with his executioner and, as a last request, recited a poem he had written called “I am Going to the Lordy”. He had requested an orchestra to play as he sang his poem, but this request was denied.

A Few Answers To Questions You Always Wondered About

February 8, 2017 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

Why is the suicide rate amongst vetenarians so high?

Veterinary medicine attracts high-achieving, type A, empathic, perfectionist personalities. Veterinary school is very similar to medical school, usually at least 8 years of university academic commitment – however, veterinarians do not typically enjoy the same level of professional respect or income that a human physician receives.

Compassion fatigue is a very real syndrome once in practice – some times, a solution or treatment is readily available, yet the animal cannot be treated because of a caretaker’s financial constraints. This can lead to undue animal suffering, which is the one thing that a veterinarian wants to most avoid. Euthanasia becomes the best choice for a pet that could otherwise be cared for, if the owners could afford treatment.

In some cases, owners are dismissive or ignorant of the value of veterinary care or the veterinarian, which can erode one’s self-worth.  Combine all of this with the average veterinary school debt, in the range of $150,000 – $200,000, and you have all the ingredients for hopelessness within a profession that perhaps appeared more rosy than it truly is.

The 10 Deadliest Mafia Hitmen

February 8, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

Lead

By Chris Barker

Sometimes, even the Mafia needs a little extra assistance. When things get messy, the notorious criminal organization has an utterly ruthless and deranged clean-up crew of paid assassins on standby. Whether they need to violently send out a message, or subtly whack a rival with minimum repercussions, the Mob can turn to any number of cold-blooded career professionals. These contract killers are a law enforcement officer’s nightmare – and case studies for criminal justice experts.

It’s an odd profession, killing for a living. Career prerequisites include ruthlessness, aggression, and an icy sense of emotional detachment. And if the cases that follow are anything to go by, some kind of psychological imbalance probably helps as well. The infamous killers on this list plied their trade with the kind of fervor and dedication that might have earned them a golden handshake had their chosen careers been above board. Read on for the 10 most dangerous mafia hitmen in history.
