    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    No I bet you are not. I bet you are lovely,kind and caring. If someone is bothering you should tell someone you trust because that way it will get sorted. 

    If you need me I’m here 

    Thank you but it is true. 
    Always be positive about you because it will help your mood. Always think positive because it will help you be stronger and always look on the brighter side of life.

    hope you feel better soon

    Eye tests aren't just to see if you need glasses - they're important for eye-health as well.

    A rare congenital condition called situs inversus causes people's internal organs to be the mirror image of what is 'normal'. It usually doesn't cause additional health problems.

    Being ignored might be worse for you than being bullied.

    Researchers from the University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business found feeling excluded in the workplace leads to greater job dissatisfaction, health problems and causes more people to quit their job, compared to those who are harassed and bullied.

    ‘We've been taught that ignoring someone is socially preferable - if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all,’ said University of British Columbia's Sauder School of Business Professor Sandra Robinson, who co-authored the study.

    ‘But ostracism actually leads people to feel more helpless, like they're not worthy of any attention at all.’

    The Post It note was the invention of failure - the guy who created them was working on designing a new super-strength glue, and instead what he thought would work, really wasn't very sticky at all. He started to use his failed glue to stick new ideas to the wall, and realised that it was good at being able to put things up and take them down without damaging the surface. 

    A good reminder that there is no real failure if you try and put work in to change, the result may not always be expected, but often there is something really positive that comes out of it.

    In the UK criminal justice system, if male offenders were treated with the same leniency as female offenders there would be 6x fewer males in prison.

    Listening to 'Don't Stop Me Now' by Queen can improve your mental and physical health.

    Listening to 'happy music'- music in a major key and with a fast tempo, has in studies been shown to positively effect your mental and physical wellbeing.

    Dutch neuroscientist Jacob Jolij gives Queen's Don't Stop Me Now as an 'excellent example of a feel-good song'.

    The number one feel-good song is 'Don't Stop Me Now' by Queen — it's quite a bit faster than the average song, plus it's in a major key that works quite well, and if you look at the lyrics, they are very positive.

    Did you know that percentages are reversable.

    eg, 5% of 40 is the same as 40% of 5

    Yesterday is history

    This is really interesting (and a little scary :lol:) and made me remember a similar fact I know about. Fanta was originally created in Nazi Germany as a substitute for Coca-Cola! The US put a trade embargo on Germany during World War 2 so a man named Max Keith invented a fruit flavoured soft drink from ingredients available in Germany.
