Horror movie soundtracks sometimes include infrasound, which is sound below the range of human hearing. Even though we can’t hear it we can still feel it and infrasound has been shown to induce anxiety, heart palpitations, and shivering.

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a fabulous week and an even better weekend!

Because the concrete of the Hoover Dam was poured into individual, rectangular shaped sections–rather than with a single, continuous pour–the physical dam itself will survive up to 10,000 years and be one of the last remaining visible and recognizable monuments of humans on the planet.
