20 Facts That Really Took Us To The Mat
Did you know that dogs and humans love each other in the same way? It's true! And not only do we feel deep unconditional love for our furry friends, but looking at them also releases oxytocin in our brains. Oxytocin is sometimes called the “love hormone” because it triggers feelings of protection and attachment. So next time your dog is giving you those big puppy eyes, rest assured that they really are full of love! And hey, speaking of love and devotion, did you know there's a cult dedicated to Gadget Hackwrench from Rescue Rangers? That's right, this intrepid female mouse has inspired an international group of devotees who pray to her posters, sing songs about her greatness, and stick stickers bearing her likeness all over the place. Did you also know that when women first started applying to be astronauts, NASA was worried about one very important detail: their periods. Yep, officials were concerned that feminine hygiene products wouldn't work properly in space and a woman could literally bleed to death while on a mission. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed, and menstruating astronauts no longer pose problems for NASA.
