Ask me anything   “About all you can do in life is be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won't like you at all.”
― Rita Mae Brown



Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

This is the chemical formula for love:

dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.

It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.

Let that sink in.

"1. Don’t check your phone.
2. Stretch until you make strange noises and you feel ready to face the day. Then arch your back and stretch again.
3. Drink a glass of water.
4. Wash your face, carefully. Moisturise and put on makeup if you want, brush your teeth.
5. Put on clothes that make you feel good. Your favourite top or those jeans you know make your butt look good. Feel good about yourself.
6. Look in the mirror and acknowledge it. Not just your clothes, but the body and face beneath. Pick one thing about yourself that you love. A freckle. The curve of your shoulders. That sparkle in your eyes.
7. Now have breakfast, fuel your body with fruit and positivity. Love yourself.
8. Hug something fluffy.
9. Go for a walk. Sit in a park and read. Go to a cafe or to see that movie that’s out, who cares if your friends are busy, you can go alone - there is nothing wrong with being alone. Enjoy your own company. Love yourself. Learn to love things again.
10. Walk into a room like it’s your party, everyone is there for you. False confidence is a wonderful thing. Own it, and soon real confidence will follow."
