How Trampolines Work

How Trampolines Work

2019-05-1400:57:23

The world’s loved trampolines since they were invented by a pair of acrobats in Iowa in the 30s – so much so, trampolining is now an Olympic event. What people don’t love about trampolines is their propensity to cause paralysis, brain injuries and death. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
Instead of actually detecting lies, polygraph machines sense physiological variations, ostensibly brought on by guilt. The results are subject to interpretation, and therefore controversial.

The world takes $40 billion of dietary supplements – from vitamin A to yohimbe bark – every year. Yet, the jury is still out on whether most of them work. In America, the FDA isn’t allowed to approve supplements, and no one can say what is in your pills. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

There have been cases of bed bug bites being attributed to short term memory loss. People waking up having no recollection of the night before.That would have been a cool addition to this podcast.

I've tried many times to listen to this Podcast but I just can't do it. Josh literally has the most annoying voice overheard my life and I can't stand It. It's like nails on chalkboard to me

If the trans community wants equality then stop forcing it on non transgender communities. I don't care about your choices. I couldn't see why someone would care about mine. If they do then that is the person I don't want to be around. To each their own is what I say. Labels don't make the person. I accept people for how they present themselves to me. Nothing more, nothing less.

corrections corner: the Spanish did leave a big mark on the culture of the Philippines. a large majority of Filipinos identify as Roman Catholics today, and the Tagalog language is riddled with Spanish influence, including last names. They were later strongly influenced by American occupation as well.

I kind of liked the movie. ever since watching it, and 23 sticking in my mind, I see it EVERYWHERE! a guy I work with was in a bad accident a little over 3 years ago in a company vehicle that was vehicle #23. after he was ok I told him about the movie. I dont recall if he watched it, but he still makes comments about how he sees that number all over the place. it may just be one of those things where you hear or see something new and then notice it more and more simply because it's in your mind. either way, it's crazy how much you'll see it. to go down the ridiculous rabbit hole of the movie, look at today's date. 5/3/2019. 19+2+5=26, 26-3=23! 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
