Let's say you wanted to buy, say, the same Eyjafjallajökull. If you have a lot of money - treat. To buy a volcano, it is necessary that someone has sold you.

With regard to the eruption of the standard contract of sale to the buyer the burden of responsibility for the acquisition of property. However, you buy only the surface, but not all underground vents, core and worms. Therefore, the eruption will be charged on the natural disasters that man can not tame.

The system of naming is fairly simple. As a rule, the initiative put forward by those who decided to build the object. In the case of submarines and other vessel it will be the Ministry of Defence. If it comes to industrial names (cities, districts, streets, etc.), the name must necessarily be consistent with the deputy mayor. By the way, if the people doubt the existence of the hero Pisyulina and want to rename an object, they can file a collective application to the municipality in the name of the deputy mayor.

I must admit that none of the cat in good faith will not agree to give up their eyes for transplant. And other ways not. The fact that the human retina has two kinds of visual education. One, called cones, perceive the shape and color of the objects. Other sticks, also called machine twilight vision, distinguish light and shadow. So, in the rods contained visual purple (rhodopsin), which splits the light. As soon as we have the darkness envelops, rhodopsin begins to accumulate and increase the sensitivity of the eye. The retina of mammals, nocturnal (cats just because of these), consists mainly of sticks and daytime animals (like humans)) - from cones. Change the ratio of the rods and cones in the human retina is impossible. If supernatural powers cats cause someone to envy, incompatible with life, try to eat carrots. Carotene contained therein improves night vision, affecting the speed of production of rhodopsin. After the carrot diet can certainly learn to find a black cat in a dark room, even if it is not there.

However, it is better so than to sink into obscurity, like those rulers of Egypt, Mesopotamia and the Cycladic land, trampled ground even before Menes.

9. Can the blind dream?

Blind from birth people do not see dreams, but they are their "smell and touch" as they say, a sleep specialists (who themselves some sighted people). Dreams are compiled from real experiences, which records the brain during life and then in a chaotic manner broadcasts. Since the blind perceive the world with the help of smells, tastes, sounds and tactile sensations, they are in a dream and listen to music, touch the items.

The body of insects can destroy E. coli, pathogens most viral infections and even cancer cells. The main scourge of wild insects - a deformity of the joints at the "elderly" representatives (ie, rheumatism). For example, cockroaches in 60 days of age it is difficult to move on a vertical surface. But scientists share their grave is not going to facilitate.

12. Why is the direction running around the stadium always counterclockwise?

The answer is in the "History of Europe" Norman Davies - this book is generally competes for entertaining with a 'Who Knows?'. The tradition is preserved since the days of Greece, where the sport (artificial development) contrasted the nature (natural evolution). Then we decided to run against - though not the shooter, which was not there, and against the movement of the shadows in the sundial. And still later, some athletes have noticed a century, so run a little bit more comfortable, at least, a right-handed athletes. Running Stadium counterclockwise, right foot athlete makes a wider pitch than would his left, since the amplitude of movement of the right leg a few centimeters more.

13. When the left to the right?

If you look at a map of Ukraine, then, finding in it the Dnieper, it can be seen and one of its tributaries - the river Desna. Anyone even slightly familiar with the basics of geography, to say that the Desna - left tributary of the Dnieper. But the word "gum" in ancient means "right". And an expression such as "sit at the right hand master," means literally to sit to the right of the host. In today's Serbo-Croatian - one of the close relatives of Russian - "gum" also means "right". So why, then, Desna is a left tributary of the Dnieper? The fact that the Eastern Slavs, learning and calling the river, moving up the Dnieper and Desna while actually located on the right.

14. Are there more in the world has some unexplored territory?

Yes, white spots on the map still exist. Remain under-researched, Antarctica, small oceanic islands and the Amazon jungle.

In order to maintain the population of any trip to the island banned by the government. Even the sentinelese not differ special hospitality and best newcomer slain with spears.

15. Why woolens sit terribly wrong after washing?

Any wool, whether wool sheep, vicuna or sweater is composed of the protein keratin. The flakes are stacked in its fiber circles and are flush with each other (in the sense strand of wool equal similar to bump and a spring).

16. What do the hospital with amputated limbs and organs?

Typically amputated body parts after disinfection is placed in a sealed disposable packaging and are burned in the crematorium. In addition, in some cases, doctors may give the affected limb to relatives for burial. If no crematorium, no relatives there, hospital officials buried amputated body parts for municipal accounts. There are no other options!

17. If a person falls into a coma for a long time, it gets old?

To a certain practice such cases are not met, so to say with absolute certainty is impossible. However, theoretical knowledge is enough to give a definite answer: Yes, getting older. After all, despite the fact that the patient is in a coma completely lost consciousness and reaction to stimuli, the body continues to live: updated cells, tissues undergo the same changes as in ordinary life. However, slower. Translated from the Greek "coma" means "deep sleep." Alas, no matter how deep it is, you can not go to bed at 20, wake up at 50 and look like Sergei Zverev. Well, thank God in general.

So far, everything!
