Mice can sing, but we can’t hear them. Male mice can produce complex songs, similar to songbirds, in the ultrasonic range when they spend time with females.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word “kinda” has been around since the early 20th century. It calls “whatcha” a “nonstandard contraction.” “Hafta,” on the other hand, is called “informal”, while “lemme” is a “contraction”.

TVs emit a tone during ad breaks that are inaudible to humans but that smartphones are listening for; now corporate entities can link the tv & phone as belonging to the same person. It means government entities can play a tone through the TV and ping all the phones in the room, identifying the whole group.

Hey friends

I feel the need to address my new Feel Better Sampler stamp set.

I am a sweet and kind person and would never do or say anything to disrespect, offend or hurt anyone. My heart is always in the right place.

I chose to imply a harsh word on my stamp set because as most everyone knows...cancer is one of the worst diseases. Those of us who has been affected can feel anger, sadness and so many emotions. Sometimes it helps to yell about it. My Mom passed away nearly 30 years ago from breast cancer and it never gets easier.

I realize that not everyone swears or condones cuss words. We are all different and that is a beautiful thing. I never judge anyone for anything.

If I have offended you, I am sincerely sorry. <3 Kim

When you first meet people it is common to forget their names – a phenomenon called the ‘next-in-line’ effect. This is because people are too worried about themselves, and what they’ll say next, to focus on remembering the names of people they’re introduced to.
